New wrinkle in GMO conspiracy

New York Times: FDA says gene-altered potatoes, apples are safe

GMO potatoes won't bruise, and they produce
fewer cancer causing chemicals when fried.

Wait a minute. French fries that are LESS likely to cause cancer? Has there been a breakdown in the secret evil alliance between the Big Agriculture-GMO conspiracy and the Big Pharmaceutical conspiracy? Or is FDA cleverly manipulating us to eat more French fries? 
(Hmm. I wonder if it is possible for us to eat MORE French fries?)
