GOT GMO Ritz?

GOT GMO RITZ?

 

GMO – genetically modified organism.
Do you have a “sleeve-a-day” habit?

It’s a thing.

Ritz.
Addicting.
Full of inflammatory ingredients including hormone-disrupting GMOs.


Eat just 10 crackers => turns into 5 tsp of sugar.


Eat a sleeve (35 crackers) => turns into 17.5 tsp of sugar.


Oh, and the sodium – a sleeve has 735mg.

These horrible ingredients are tricking your taste buds, and creating a huge desire for these “buttery” (there’s no butter) rounds.

Why should you care?

“Genetically modified foods have been linked to toxic and allergic reactions, sick, sterile, and dead livestock, and damage to virtually every organ studied in lab animals. The effects on humans of consuming these new combinations of proteins produced in GMOs are unknown and have not been studied.” ~Institute for Responsible Technology
