The 8 Biggest Food Companies In The World Who Use GMO

ban_gmocompanies Latest Blog Posts

All the biggest names in the food business use GMO. All of them! Together these eight companies make up more than 90% of food product inside grocery retailers! This is an absolutely staggering number and the worst part is that most of the organic food brands are owned by the same companies.

Is it not time to ban the brands which lobby against GMO labeling and consistently use these ingredients in their foods?

    Joshua Cox. High fructose corn syrup is NOT the same thing as sugar. Fructose is metabolised by the liver and a high high intake (>25grams per day) is a major cause of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease which leads to higher levels of insulin resistance. Glucose (from sugar) however is able to be used by skeletal muscle tissue so exercise can help control/regulate glucose and insulin levels. Fructose however is not controlled by insulin and only the liver can deal with it and it does so by depositing fructose metabolites as fat stores within the liver.

    Linda Cronenweth Larry Eat organic…things at least labeled non-GMO, grow your own. I don't eat anything by these companies…ever!

    Vincent, I'm a very pragmatic individual. Refer to what you will, I will rely on a bit of common sense and a balanced approach to what I consume. But saying millions of years….. The oldest of homo species is 2.5 million years old, the oldest of homosapeins is 200,000 years old but modern man as we know it is at this time is maybe 10,000 years old. Based on your millions of years argument….. Well it is clearly divine intervention that the average age of people has done nothing but increase considering we haven't developed past eating species that are all but extinct. Please continue to find someone else's logic to rely on. Yours is weak.

  4. Jessie, that's the point. They will control the food. When we can no longer get heritage seeds, we're pretty much screwed. Not us necessarily, but out kids and grand kids.

  5. Judy Allen and Susan Long, it's true we don't know what the long-term reactions will be. But I am more concerned that we have no idea in the world how these GMO's will mutate. And the probability is that they will and in several different directions, which will muddy the waters still further. I've convinced my husband to plant only non-GMO and we are a small concern back in the hills so we haven't had cross contamination, thank God. I have, however, begun having horrible rashes and respiratory reactions to tenderizers, preservatives and whatnot. Testing is extremely expensive, but as long as I stick to whole foods, I am ok. This just cemented my fears and determination. Gardening and canning starting this season so I can have a red sauce again! And Ketchup!! And, oh, I miss junk food!!

  6. Ruben Schouten , I read a study where they nuked the water used to water a plant and boiled the water to give another plant. The plant receiving the nuked water died… I don't use the microwave much at all anymore…

  7. exactly fucking american governments are fucking up our world but in the end of the world wen we have to leave here this planet we will need gmo i think for our species to survive

  9. "Genetic modification, or genetic engineering, is the process of manipulating an organism’s DNA to display specific traits [1]. Gene splicing introduces new genetic material into an organism’s DNA, resulting in a genetically modified organism (GMO).

    "This experimental technology often merges DNA from different species, creating combinations of plant, animal, bacterial, and viral genes that cannot occur in nature or via conventional breeding [2]. GMOs are engineered for various purposes, ranging from agricultural production to scientific research."

    "Why the concern about GMOs?"

    "Environmental impact: Increased herbicide and pesticide resistance is creating superweeds and superbugs, requiring heavier applications of these chemicals [5] [5.5]. Greater herbicide and pesticide use on GMO crops pollutes soil and water resources. GMO crops are also accelerating the drive toward mono-crop agriculture, which diminishes genetic diversity and threatens food security in the event of widespread crop disease.
    Corporate control: Three companies–Monsanto, DuPont, and Syngenta–control over 53% of the global seed market [6]. As the market continues to consolidate, biotech companies exercise strict patent laws, suing farmers for patent infringement if their fields are contaminated with genetically engineered seed. Biotechnology corporations, Big Ag, and processed food companies also spend millions of dollars on anti-GMO labeling campaigns to keep consumers in the dark about the food we eat [7].
    Health risks: GMOs are not yet proven safe for human consumption. Many studies claiming the safety of GE-foods are industry-funded and only last for 90 days [8]. In order to prove that GMO foods are safe, more independent, long-term testing is necessary."
