Frito-Lay Corporation with headquarters in Texas, whose parent company is Pepsi Co., sells the deadly food products containing genetically modified (GM), pesticide production of “corn” and Monsanto herbicide (glyphosate), which has been scientifically linked to causing reproductive damage, digestive disorders hormone termination and much more.
Recent tests conducted on Frito-Lay Sunchips product showed the presence of GM Bt-corn, consisting 100% of corn used in the product. Bt corn, as you may call, creates its own insecticide inside every cell of the plant, which can not be washed and regulated by the Agency for Environmental Protection – in other words, Bt corn is not a food.
Nutrition studies on mammals have found that Bt corn causes immune system disorders, blood biochemistry disorders, male reproductive organ damage, disturbances in the functioning of the digestive system and signs of organ toxicity.The proteins from Bt corn, which allegedly smashes in the digestive tract, also found circulating in the blood of both pregnant and non-pregnant women.
Also in the Sunchips was found dangerously high levels of glyphosate, the main active ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup Weedkiller. Using specific LC / MS / MS methods of testing, the consumer pressure group GMO Free USA observed levels of glyphosate Sunchips average of 0.14 parts per million (ppm) or 0.14 milligrams per kilogram (mg / kg).
Glyphosate, is associated with damage to the endocrine hormone system, a birth defects, infertility and great damage to the kidneys and other vital organs. Glyphosate also destroys gut Microbiota, which the body needs to process and assimilate nutrients, and fight off harmful pathogens and maintain a strong immune system.
“Quantitative PCR test checked the DNA analysis that 100% of corn in the Sunchips is GMO containing DNA sequences known to be present in insecticides for the production of Bt corn and Roundup Ready corn,” reports the US GMO-free. “Test documented the presence of glyphosate in Sunchips at the level of 0:14 ppm, or 0.14 mg / kg.”
Test results expose that Sunchips as poisonous to humans
Really insidious part in all this is that Sunchips is advertised as healthy, whole grain meal “low in saturated fat and cholesterol.” Apart from the fact that saturated fat and cholesterol are important nutrients needed for health – The insinuation that they are not a scam based on pseudoscientific prejudices and ignorance – the presentation of Sunchips as a healthy is nothing less than criminal false advertising.
And this is hardly a shock, given that PepsiCo,the parent company of Frito-Lay is, has spent more than $ 13 million in the fight against the mandatory GMO labeling. Both PepsiCo and Frito-Lay are the main carriers of GMO junk foods, many of which are marketed directly to children, which we now know are loaded with chemical poisons in the form of pesticides and herbicide residues.
“PepsiCo, owner of Frito-Lay, was one of the largest financial contribution in the fight against the consumer needs to know that eat GMO”, reports GMO-free USA.
“Pepsi has contributed over $ 8.1 million to defeat the voting citizens’ initiatives in California ($ 2,485,400), Washington ($ 1,620,899), Colorado ($ 1,650,000) and Oregon ($ 2,350,000), and spent an additional $ 5.06 million on lobbying in 2013 ($ 2,720,000) and 2014 (the first two quarters of 2014: $ 2,340,000). “
