The Daily show was the scene for Jeffrey Smith as he discussed the deep implications of new genetically engineered potatoes and apples biotech is rolling out. No stranger to the issue, this marks Jon Stewart’s third jab at the biotech industry, Monsanto, and regulatory agencies.
NaturalSociety has reported on how GMO apples and potatoes were approved for release – primarily with a ‘non-browning’ selling point. Going to market as early as 2016, the concern is the double-stranded RNA found in both the apples and potatoes.
Smith’s organization, The Institute for Responsible Technology sent out a video before his Daily Show appearance to explain his points minus the comedic backdrop.
