You will carry a packet of fried chips and other stuff every time you are going for a picnic. You are surely going to have a health problem if you are eating Lay’s daily. LAY’S FLAVORS VERY GOOD BUT THEY ARE DANGEROUS! Yes, dangerous and here’s WHY..
A study shows that Texas-based Frito-Lay company has been selling processed foods products that contain both Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide (glyphosate) and genetically modified (GM), pesticide-producing “corn”. This is a worrying revelation as both ingredients have been scientifically linked to many health issues, such as hormone disturbance and kidney failure.
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).
For all of those GM followers who think the results are prejudiced:
“The glyphosate remainder test was conducted by a qualified lab using the Specific LC/MS/MS testing method with a minimum measurable level of 0.02 ppm. The test documented the presence of glyphosate in SunChips at a level of 0.14 ppm – 0.14 mg/kg. As we stated in the findings of our Froot Loops testing, this gives significant reason for worry.”
There is a growing body of scientific indication that glyphosate bio-accumulates in our bodies. It has been linked to endocrine disorders, cancer, autism and reproductive health issues. One MIT scientist, Dr. Stephanie Seneff, says that glyphosate is one of the worst pollutants in the environment. Yet we put it in our bodies daily with companies like PepsiCo selling their merchandises.
Although Lay’s has a “low sodium” version of their chips, most contain an overabundance of salt. A diet consisting of too much salt can lead to high blood pressure and kidney disease. Even just one serving of Lay’s chips is recognized as high in calories and high in fat by the FDA. Loading ourselves with calories and fat causes weight gain and puts us at risk for other diseases. Unhealthy deep fried chips cause digestive problems and stress on the body’s metabolism making it harder to produce insulin, which in turn leads to (or significantly increases of risks) type 2 diabetes.
Lay’s has many varieties of chip flavors like “Barbecue”, “Classic BLT” and “Sour Cream and Onion”. The components list for these chips is a mile long! Although Lay’s has started to use more “natural flavorings” in their recipes, these flavors consist of what they call “bacon type flavor” and “lettuce kind flavor”; which of course are all created in a lab. The doubt of these ingredients gives us little faith that Lays are actually a healthy snack.
What about Lay’s “Baked” potato chips? These are promoted as being a lot healthier than the original chips. When we observe the label we read that the baked version contains additional ingredients such as corn starch, soy lecithin and corn oil. Since it is not stated that they are organic, there is a high chance that they are genetically changed (GMO) ingredients. Also there is sugar and corn sugar (high fructose corn syrup); which have been shown in studies to increase the risk of obesity, liver damage, and metabolic syndrome. Scientists also discovered that about half of profitable high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) was polluted with mercury.
And this is barely a shock, considering Frito-Lay’s parent company, PepsiCo, spent more than $13 million fighting contrary to obligatory GMO labeling. Both PepsiCo and Frito-Lay are major spreaders of GMO junk foods; many of which are marketed straight to children, and which we now know are loaded with chemical toxic substance in the form of pesticide and herbicide residues.
“Pepsi donated over $8.2 million to defeat citizens’ survey initiatives in California ($2,485,000). Washington ($1,620,999), Colorado ($1,650,000) and Oregon ($2,350,000); and spent an additional $5.06 million on lobbying in 2013 ($2,700,000) and 2014 (first 2 quarters of 2014: $2,300,000).”
