Three types of potatoes genetically engineered by an Idaho company to resist the pathogen that caused the Irish potato famine are safe for the environment and safe to eat, Canadian officials said.

加拿大官員表示,美國愛德荷州一家公司的三種基因改造馬鈴薯沒有環境危害、可安全食用。該公司改造馬鈴薯以抵抗曾造成愛爾蘭大飢荒的病原體。

The approval by Health Canada and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency means the J.R. Simplot Co. potatoes can be imported, planted and sold in Canada.

加拿大衛生部和食品檢驗局的批准,代表美國辛普勞公司能夠在加拿大進口、種植、銷售馬鈴薯。

The approval by Canada means the two nations can import and export with each other the potatoes that contain a gene resistant to late blight that led to the Irish potato famine.

加拿大的批准,代表兩國間可互相進出口能抵抗晚疫病的馬鈴薯,該病導致愛爾蘭馬鈴薯歉收和大飢荒。

There is no evidence that genetically modified organisms, known as GMOs, are unsafe to eat, but changing the genetic code of foods presents an ethical issue for some. McDonald's declines to use Simplot's genetically engineered potatoes for its French fries.

沒有證據顯示,食用基因改造食品不安全,但基改食品改變了食物的基因遺傳碼,造成道德面問題。麥當勞拒絕使用辛普勞公司的基改馬鈴薯炸薯條。

Potatoes are considered the fourth food staple crop in the world behind corn, rice and wheat. Late blight, which rotted entire crops and led to the deaths of about a million Irish in the 1840s, is still a major problem for potato growers, especially in wetter regions.

馬鈴薯是繼玉米、稻米、小麥之後第四大主要作物,1840年代晚疫病造成愛爾蘭馬鈴薯腐壞,導致約100萬人死亡,至今對馬鈴薯農仍是嚴重問題,尤其在潮濕地區。
