Texas-based Frito-Lay was not long a go caught selling processed foods that can be deadly, which contain a lot of Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide (glyphosate), pesticide-producing corn and they were genetically modified, they are also connected to many health problems, among them is kidney failure and hormone disruption, and the parent company of Texas-based Frito-Lay is the PepsiCo.
Frito Lay’s Sunchips Tested
According to the latest studies, Frito-Lays SunChips was found to contain genetically modified Bt-corn, and the product’s structure was only made from that, it was 100% GM Bt-corn.
The Bt-corn is creating its own insectide in every cell in the plant, therefore it cannot be regulated by the Environmental Protection agency, and you can’t wash it off, to be more precise, the Bt-corn is not a food.
According to the studies that were done on mammals, it was concluded that the Bt-corn was causing a lot of changes in our blood cells, therefore causing infections, kidney diseases and liver diseases. The Bt-corn contains proteins with are later broken down in our digestive system, and according to the researches, their presence was found in non-regnant and pregnant women.
The main ingredient of Monsanto’s Roundup weedkiller is the glyphosate, and it is present also in the SunChips in huge amounts. There is an advocacy group called GMO-Free USA, has done some specific LC/MS/MS tests, and they wanted to see how much glyphosate was contained in the SunChips, and they found out that there were 0.14 mg of it in every kilogram.
According to the researches that we’ve already spoken about, the glyphosate is an ingredient that is causing damage to our hormone (endocrine) system, therefore leading to diseases of the kidneys, and of many other vital organs in our body. Our body needs a microbiota in the guts in order to absorb the nutrients, and this harmful ingredient is destroying it, and the microbiota is also highly needed to boost your immune system and eliminate pathogens that can be harmful. According to the testings that were preformed, the SunChips was made out of 100% genetically modified corn, and the DNA sequences were found to be also present in the Bt-corn and Roundup Ready corn, which are produced by an insectide, reported the GMO-Free USA advocacy group. There were 0,14 mg of glyphosate in the SunChips contained in a single kilogram.
SunChips is Poisonous to Humans
The most ironic thing about this product is that the SunChips is considered as a whole grain, and healthy snack that has very low amounts of cholesterol and fat in it. And the interesting fact about this, is that both the cholesterol and saturated fats are highly important nutrients for our overall health. So the thing that SunChips is presented as an Earth-based food is one of the biggest lies that is known all around the world.
And the worst part about it is that the parenting company PepsiCo reported that they spend about $13 million to stand against the mandatory GMO labeling. The interesting thing is that both the Frito-Lay and PepsiCo are the leadng companies of GMO food products, and there are a lot of them that are consumed by children, and you know that they contain a lot of chemical poisons, like herbicide residues and pesticides.
Also there is another product, a breakfast cereal by Kellogg’s Froot Loops, that is very high in glyphosate herbicide and GMOs.
The owner of Frito-Lay is PepsiCo, and it was the biggest contributor which financially supported the fight against consumers. GMO-Free USA reported this.
Pepsi contributed around 8 million dollars to defeat the ballot initiatives of citizens in Colorad ($1,650,000), Washington ($1,60,899), Oregon (2,350,000) and California (2,485,400), and they also gave about 5 million dollars on lobbying back in 2013 (about 2,720,000, as well as in 2014, and they’ve spent about $2,340,000 in the first two quarters of the year.
