We should all be aware that our world is run by greedy CEOs. By now they have incorporated so many toxic ingredients in our food supply that it’s hard to even know what is healthy anymore.
Processed foods are terrible for our health. They are packed full of ingredients like high fructose corn syrup, and they are causing a rapid decline in the public’s health. They also contain lots of artificial ingredients that were never meant to be consumed in the first place. They are artificial chemicals that are added to food to make it cheaper to produce. They contain preservatives, which are chemicals to prevent the food from rotting. Colorants and flavors are chemicals used to give foods a certain taste and color. Lastly, processed foods contain texturants or more chemicals added in to give the food texture. It’s needless to say that processed foods are terrible for our health.
One of the most popularly consumed foods in America, Doritos chips, are heavily processed and have recently been linked to cancer and other diseases. Processed foods are the reason that our health is declining so rapidly, heart disease is the number one killer in the USA, and cancer patients are multiplying. It’s because of food brands like Doritos, sell massive amounts of cancer-causing chemicals all over the world – yet they’re not only getting away with it, they’re stinking freakin’ rich.
Doritos has an immense amount of ingredients that are horrible for your body. For starters, they contain genetically modified corn. They contain toxic pesticides that destroy your entire body. Over time, they deteriorate your most vital organs like your liver, kidneys, and immune system.
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.”
Doritos also contain harmful dyes and colorants that are detrimental to your health. Yellow #5 and Yellow #6 are included in Doritos, and they can cause hyperactivity, allergic reactions, and cancer. Red #40 has been shown to damage DNA. It caused swelling around the mouth, hives, hyperactivity, and cancer in children. Maltodextrin is another popular chemical in processed foods. It’s a chemical sweetener made from cornstarch, but it derives from genetically modified corn.
Ingredients of Doritos:
Whole corn, vegetable oil (corn, soybean, and/or sunflower oil), salt, cheddar cheese (milk, cheese cultures, salt, enzymes), maltodextrin, wheat flour, whey, monosodium glutamate, buttermilk solids, romano cheese (part skim cow’s milk, cheese cultures, salt, enzymes), whey protein concentrate, onion powder, partially hydrogenated soybean and cottonseed oil, corn flour, disodium phosphate, lactose, natural and artificial flavor, dextrose, tomato powder, spices, lactic acid, artificial color (including Yellow 6, Yellow 5, Red 40), citric acid, sugar, garlic powder, red and green bell pepper powder, sodium caseinate, disodium inosinate, disodium guanylate, nonfat milk solids, whey protein isolate, corn syrup solids.
One of the main reasons the United States has such an obesity problem is because of the corn syrup solids present in most processed foods. It disrupts the metabolism, elevated blood triglyceride levels, cause weight gain, and heart disease. Just because the food tastes good, doesn’t mean you should eat it. They modify the food to taste good and be addictive with chemicals.
Instead of eating the toxic Doritos, make your own healthy versions of this recipe!
