Have you ever tried to eat just one Doritos chip? It’s kind of impossible huh? Have you ever found yourself stuffing chips into your mouth faster and faster? If you answered yes to any of these questions you have experienced a man-made and totally engineered craving.
Doritos and other chip manufacturers have spent millions engineering flavorings that burst flavor into your mouth then quickly dissipate. This causes you to consume their product faster and in larger quantities, leading you to buy more! These man-made flavorings do help these corporations grow their bottom line, but they are devastating to your health in exchange. Doritos chips (made by Frito-Lay) are one of the most popular snacks on the planet with annual sales often between $250-$500 million annually.
However tasty, Doritos chips loaded with dangerous ingredients.
Now looks look more deeply into some of these key ingredients:
The corn used to make these chips is genetically modified (GMO) to resist drought and is loaded with pesticides Intervention into corns DNA my humans has stripped it of nutritional value and caused it to be very hard to digest. It can also damage vital organs in the body such as the liver, kidneys, bladder and lymphatic system due to its high toxicity level.
According to the Institute for Responsible Technology (IRT):
“Several animal studies indicate serious health risks associated with GMO food including infertility, immune problems, accelerated aging, faulty insulin regulation, and changes in major organs and the gastrointestinal system.”
The vegetable oil used to make the chips is also full of GMO ingredients. Almost 90% of all canola oils in the USA is GMO. This oil and others such as soy, corn, safflower is dangerously high in Omega-6 (which is only beneficial when balances with Omega-3 in a 3:1 ratio…the average American diet has a ratio closer to 50:1).
Commercially pasteurized milk in the USA has also been destroyed by commercial farming techniques. Due to the fact these corporate farmers almost always have the cows pregnant (more cows more money) the milk contains a dangerously high level of growth hormones and feminine hormones (especially bad for men and boys).
