What is herbicide doing in Frootloops and Sunchips? Genetic engineering scientific concept

A widely used herbicide (weedkiller) has been found in a popular breakfast cereal and corn chips. These foods were produced using GMO’s (Genetically Modified Organism). Residues of the herbicide glysophate have been found in these foods after the organisation GMO Free USA had these foods tested in an accredited lab looking for glyphosate residue using the Specific LC/MS/MS testing method with a minimum detectable level of 0.02 ppm.

Sunchips were found to contain 100% GMO corn. According to GMO Free USA “An in-vitro study found that the insecticides in this corn may be toxic to human cells. Feeding studies conducted on mammals found adverse effects including immune system disturbances, blood biochemistry disturbances, male reproductive organ damage, disturbances in the functioning of the digestive system and signs of organ toxicity. Industry claims that these insecticidal proteins are broken down in the digestive tract, yet a study found the proteins circulating in the blood of pregnant and non-pregnant women and the blood supply to fetuses.”

According to the Journal of Poultry Science glysophate residue has been found in animal feed and has also been found in the chicken meat and different organs as spleen, liver, intestine, lung, heart, and kidney of chickens consuming that feed.

Glysophate residues consumed through GMO produced feeds has also been found to have a negative effect on gastrointestinal microbiota in chickens.

Should we be concerned about GMO’s?
