Gerber’s Lil’ Crunchies are FILLED with Monsanto’s Cancer-Causing Chemicals: Watch for this ONE THING
Sure, Gerber will tell you their kid and baby foods are safe. But, did you know that some of their foods - including their Lil' Crunchies - are filled with cancer-causing chemicals?
By now you may be familiar with the cancer risks associated with glyphosate, a main ingredient in Monsanto's Roundup, and you may even have seen the warnings that pesticide exposure isn't good for kids, but did you know that glyphosate is an ingredient in many kids' foods?
Recent tests have returned some troubling results:
We sent a package of Gerber Graduates Lil’ Crunchies Veggie Dip Baked Whole Grain Corn Snack to a certified lab to test for the presence of GMO material. The quantitative PCR test verified, by DNA analysis, that 100% of the corn in the Lil’ Crunchies Veggie Dip was GMO.
All of the corn has been genetically engineered to be herbicide tolerant (Roundup Ready) and the corn contained DNA sequences known to be present in Bt insecticide-producing GMO corn.
This type of corn has been linked in peer-reviewed studies to cause serious harm to lab animals.
Herbicide tolerant GMO corn has also been linked, in industry-independent peer reviewed studies, to kidney and liver damage in laboratory animals.
Bt (Bacillus thuringiensis) corn produces insecticidal toxins from inside every cell of the plant that can’t be washed off. The corn is registered with and regulated by the EPA.
The FDA, EPA, and USDA allowed the insecticidal GMO corn discovered in Lil’ Crunchies Veggie Dip to be commercialized without ever conducting human safety tests.
