Independent labs have found that 100% of the corn tested in Frito-Lay’s Sun Chips, marketed as a ‘better snack food’ which could reduce heart disease, is full of GM Bt toxic pesticide and glyphosate (an herbicide chemical). Don’t let PepsiCo, the owner of Frito-Lay, get away with selling this processed food meant for the garbage bin.
GMO Free USA sent samples of SunChips to an independent lab to test for GMO content and glyphosate residue. The results came back leaving no question – GM corn (grown with Bt toxins, a registered pesticide) and glyphosate traces were throughout all samples. No wonder PepsiCo, the owner of Frito-Lay, doesn’t want its customers to know when they are eating GMOs; their ‘food’ is full of the stuff.
PepsiCo has been one of the largest monetary contributors to campaigns against GMO labeling. Pepsi contributed over $8.1 million to defeat citizens’ ballot 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 (first 2 quarters of 2014: $2,340,000).
For all of those GM supporters who think the results are biased:
“The glyphosate residue test was conducted by an accredited lab using the Specific LC/MS/MS testing method with a minimum detectable level of 0.02 ppm. The test documented the presence of glyphosate in SunChips at a level of 0.14 ppm, or 0.14 mg/kg. As we reported in the findings of our Froot Loops testing, this gives significant reason for concern.”
There is a growing body of scientific evidence which indicates that glyphosate bio-accumulates in our bodies. It has been linked to endocrine disorders, autism, cancer, and reproductive health issues. One MIT scientist, Dr. Stephanie Seneff, says that glyphosate is one of the worst toxins in the environment – yet we put it in our bodies daily with companies like PepsiCo selling their products.
