Frito-Lay Corporation based in Texas is a subsidiary brand of PepsiCo and one of the most successful companies in Texas. However, not while ago, experts have determined that some of their food products are packed with very unhealthy and even dangerous substances and compounds like roundup herbicide by Monsanto and pesticide releasing genetically modified corn.
These compounds have been associated with hormonal problems, damage to the reproductive system, digestive issues and many other health issues.
A few tests focused on their SunChips food product have shown that it contains GM Bt corn at the same time there was no presence of organic corn at all. What is shocking is that Bt corn produces separate insecticide in the cells inside the plant and they can’t be removed.
The EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) is the body that is responsible for its regulation which ultimately means that Bt corn is not real food.
Scientific studies which included mammals have determined that this corn leads to immune system imbalance, problems with the biochemistry of blood, damage to the male reproductive system, problems in the digestive system and other health issues.
In addition, proteins found in Bt corn which should be processed in the digestive tract were detected in the blood in different body parts of women.
SunChips also contains very high glyphosate levels. This is actually the main active ingredient found in Roundup herbicide produced by Monsanto. GMO Free USA, an organization focused on consumer rights has used special testing methods to determine the amount of glyphosate in SunChips and they have found that the average amount is about 0.14 mg per kg or 0.14 parts per million.
Many studies have confirmed that glyphosate is associated with damages experienced by the endocrine system which sometimes result in birth defects, kidney damage, infertility and other serious health issues.
In addition, this compound produces severe damages in the gut flora which weakens the body’s ability to process and absorb nutrients and to combat dangerous pathogens and keep the immunity at high level.
The PCR test with the help of a DNA analysis has confirmed that all the corn content in SunChips is GMO and comes with DNA sequences found in inesticide-triggering Bt and Roundup treated corn.
Test Results Show That SunChips is Harmful to Humans
The worst part is that SunChips are advertised as a very healthy snack food that has very low levels of cholesterol and saturated fat. We should know that cholesterol and saturated fat are actually needed by our body and that they can become harmful only in certain amount and certain types.
Making this kind of advertisements supports the spread of inaccurate information in the public. On top of that, SunChips is advertised as some sort of organic food which is not true.
But, experts are not surprised by the activity of Frito-Lay Corporation and the dangers that their products hide because their parent company PepsiCo invested more than 10 million dollars to prevent mandatory labeling of GMO products.
They are the companies that promote GMO food products (of course without labels) and many of these products are used by kids and teens even though they are packed with herbicide and pesticide particles. So, whenever you see a food produced by these corporations and advertised as healthy – be careful.
