The GMO potato and apple use dsRNA, which could literally change the way our genes are expressed if we eat these. I discuss this on the Daily Show this evening. Here's a more serious look at this urgent health risk.

Why Scientists are Worried about the GMO Potato and Apple

For more than a decade, he has been warning the agencies that approve GMOs about the need to test new dsRNAs for safety.

While it’s true that most RNA are not stable, Heinemann points out that “surprisingly, the form of RNA called dsRNA is very very stable. . . . And it’s now been shown that they can be taken up after digestion of the food into our blood supply.” More importantly, in a groundbreaking study conducted in China in 2012,[4] dsRNA fed to mice “transferred to the liver and down-regulated an important liver enzyme.”
