Here’s an even better reason to put down that bag of potato chips: the Texas based company Frito-Lay has been selling food products containing Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide, a substance that has been scientifically linked to disrupting hormones, causing reproductive damage, digestive disorders and more.
If that isn’t off putting enough, the same Frito-Lay product, SunChips, has been shown to contain genetically modified ingredients (GM) and toxic pesticide-producing corn.
SunChips revealed in lab tests to consist of 100% genetically modified corn called Bt corn. Bt corn behaves like cancer and makes it’s own insecticide inside every cell of the plant it “treats”. It is an internal treatment and impossible to simply wash off of the crop. Bt corn is not a food product.
WHAT EXACTLY IS BT CORN?
In animal tests Bt corn has proved extremely dangerous to consume; it causes organ damage, disturbance in function of the digestive system, immune system impairment, blood biochemistry disturbances and male reproductive organ damage. Bt corn is “supposed to break down” within the body, a lie; traces have been found in the blood of women and pregnant women.
Frito-Lays uses Monsato’s Roundup herbicide, pumping SunChips with high dosages of harmful Glyphosate, which has been linked to seriously distressing side effects. Glyphosate has been profiled as being damaging to the hormone system; it causes birth defects and infertility in women.
Glyphosate also does major damage to the kidney and organ systems. It destroys gut bacteria, which the body needs to maintain the ability to fight infections and diseases, and to absorb nutrients.
There are 0.14 milligrams of Glyphosate in kilo of SunChips- enough Glyphosate that you should stop eating SunChips forever.
POISONOUS POTATO CHIPS
SunChips are marketed as a healthy alternative to potato chips; pretty disturbing, considering a serving of SunChips effectively delivers human poison into your body. They are advertised as being low in saturated fat and cholesterol and lead buyers to believe that they are making the right snacking choice for their health.
Frito-Lay is owned by Pepsi, both pushers of GMO junk foods targeted to children and low income households. Pepsi and Frito-Lay spent over $13 million dollars trying to get out of putting mandatory GMO labelling on their products.
Not surprising, considering their products contain dangerous chemicals.
GMO Free USA says “PEPSICO, the owner of Frito-Lay, has been one of the biggest financial contributors to the fight against consumers’ need to know if they’re eating GMOs.”
It’s important that consumers demand transparency from the corporations that push products on them. Tell Frito-Lay to stop poisoning our food. Contact them directly at:
