In an independent lab there were sent some samples of SunChips from GMO Free USA to test if there was a trace of Gmo or glyphosate residue.
As the results came back, they showed that the samples were full with glyphosate traces and GM corn (grown with BT toxins, registered pesticide). Up until now we did not know that the products of PepsiCo, the owner of Frito-Lay, are full with GMOs and they do not want us to know this fact.
FritoLay Products Full with GMO Corn
One of the largest monetary contributors to many campaigns against GMO labeling was PepsiCo. They contributed more than $8.1 million to on citizens’ initiatives in Colorado ($1,650,000), California ($2,485,400), Oregon ($2,350,000) and Washington ($1,620,899). They even spent over $5.06 million on lobbying in 2013 and 2014.
Here are some facts for those who have second thoughts and think the results are partial:
“The glyphosate residue test was conducted by an authorized lab using the Specific LC/MS/MS testing method with a minimum detectable level of 0.02 ppm. In the test there was presence of glyphosate in the SunChips, more specifically 0.14 ppm or 0.14mg/kg. This is a reason to be afraid and raise an alarm.”
Health Risks of GMO Corn: Glyphosate Toxicity
A lot of scientific evidence shows that glyphosate bio-accumulates in the body. It is closely connected to the appearance of many diseases such as autism, endocrine disorders, cancer or reproductive health problems. Doctor Stephanie Seneff, a MIT scientist, claims that the worst toxin is glyphosate, and still, we put it in our bodies every day using the products of PepsiCo and any of these companies using GMO.
Share it with your friends and together contact Frito-Lay to stop them from using GMOs in their products.
