五大最危險化學處理食物 Top 5 Worst chemically modified foods to avoid

五大最危險化學處理食物 – 此五類食物宜選擇「有機」,避免受基因改造及有毒殺蟲劑影響

Top 5 Worst chemically modified foods to avoid – Always choose “Organic” to avoid the harmful effects of GMOs and poisonous pesticides!

1. 粟米 – 美國有超過一半的農場是種植孟山都的基因改造粟米。孟山都的基因改造粟米與為數眾多的健康問題連結,包括體重增加、器官衰退及其他尚未診斷的問題。

1. Corn: This is a no-brainer. If you’ve watched any food documentary, you know corn is highly modified. “As many as half of all U.S. farms growing corn for Monsanto are using genetically modified corn,” and much of it is intended for human consumption. Monsanto’s GMO corn has been tied to numerous health issues, including weight gain and organ disruption and many undiagnosed problems.

2. 大豆 – 豆腐、素食食品、大豆油、大豆粉及其他大豆食品的原材料。大豆的基因被改造成抗除草劑。90% 的大豆仍然被孟山都基因改造工產公司控制。單單於2006年,9千6百萬磅的嘉磷塞 (為廣效性接觸型除草劑) 使用於大豆種植。

2. Soy: Found in tofu, vegetarian products, soybean oil, soy flour, and numerous other products, soy is also modified to resist herbicides. As of now, biotech giant Monsanto still has a tight grasp on the soybean market, with approximately 90 percent of soy being genetically engineered to resist Monsanto’s herbicide Roundup. In one single year, 2006, 96.7 million pounds of glyphosate was sprayed on soybeans alone!

3. 糖 –  2009年孟山都推出基因改造的甜菜 (是熱帶甘蔗以外的主要糖來源) 以抵抗除草劑,後來因被揭發非法種植基因改造甜菜被迫移除。

3. Sugar: According to NaturalNews.com, genetically-modified sugar beets were introduced to the U.S. market in 2009. Like others, they’ve been modified by Monsanto to resist herbicides. Monsanto has even had USDA and court-related issues with the planting of its sugar beets, being ordered to remove seeds from the soil due to illegal approval.

4. 甜味劑 -甜味劑是常用於食物產品的有毒的添加劑,是由基因改造細菌製造而成。

4. Aspartame: Aspartame is a toxic additive used in numerous food products, and should be avoided for numerous reasons, including the fact that it is created with genetically modified bacteria.

5. 菜籽油 – 是美國其中一種嚴重受到化學修改的食物。菜籽油是從油菜籽經過多重化學處理後獲得。

5. Canola Oil: One of the most chemically altered foods in the U.S. diet, canola oil is obtained from rapeseed through a series of chemical actions.
