Defined as crop plants created for human or animal consumption using the latest molecular
biology techniques. They have been modified in the laboratory to enhance desired traits
such as increased resistance to herbicides or improved nutritional content.
The bio-chemical industry is going after two crops, corn and soy, because of their high
demand for use throughout processed goods and biofuel industries.
Many of the genetically modified foods you can find on your grocers’ shelves, today,
because they don’t have to be labeled.
Major processed foods made with genetically modified organisms: Popcorn, Canola Oil,
Cottonseed Oil, Soy Sauce, Frozen Pizza, Frozen Dinners, Dry Cereal, Baby Formula,
Canned Soups, Cookies, Ice Cream, Aspartame Sweetener.
Processed meats include bacon, sausage, hot dogs, sandwich meat, packaged ham,
pepperoni, salami… They are usually manufactured with a carcinogenic ingredient known
as sodium nitrite. This is used as a color fixer by meat companies to turn packaged meats
a bright red color so they look fresh. Unfortunately, sodium nitrite also results in the formation
of cancer-causing nitrosamines in the human body.
Studies showed that processed meats increase the risk of pancreatic cancer by 67 percent.
Every 50 grams of processed meat consumed daily increases the risk of colorectal cancer
by 50 percent.
Sodium nitrite appears predominantly in red meat products:
· Beef jerky
· Hot dogs
· Sandwich meat
· Frozen pizza with meat
· Canned soups with meat
· Frozen meals with meat
· Ravioli and meat pasta foods
· Kid’s meals containing red meat…
Monosodium Glutamate (MSG)
MSG, or monosodium glutamate, is a chemical additive commonly used by the food industry
as a “flavor enhancer”. It is added to a food to supplement or enhance its original taste or flavor.
Another term commonly used for substances such as MSG is that offlavor potentiator
MSG is used in soups and broths, sauces, gravies, and flavoring and spice blends.
MSG is also present in a variety of processed foods such as canned and frozen meats,
fish, poultry, vegetables, and ready-to-eat food plates, dressings, ketchup, mayonnaise,
soy sauce, sausages, snacks, some processed cheeses, soup powders for instant noodles,
Chinese food, etc.
