Toxic Tacos

Are You Making Toxic Tacos?

General Mills owns Old El Paso.

In the ever important goal of longer shelf life and cheaper ingredients, Old El Paso is now sporting lots of toxic chemicals and genetically modified ingredients.

You’ll want to use my recipe below to make your own batch of taco seasoning.


AVOID GMO ingredients on the label.

In Old El Paso Taco Seasoning Mix they use GMO corn maltodextrin, GMO corn starch, GMO canola oil/soybean oil and and unknown “natural flavor” which may be MSG.

Beware: Old El Paso Stand ‘N Stuff Taco Shells, Takis Fuego Flavor, Gluten Free

Ingredients: GMO corn, GMO maltodextrin, Citric Acid (probably GMO corn), GMO vegetable oil (soy/canola), MSG!, Yeast Extract (also MSG), Natural and artificial flavor (aka MSG), DYE (red and yellow).

Why avoid corn ingredients?

  • It is most likely coming from genetically modified corn.
  • This is doing a number on your gut.
  • Can’t figure out your gut pain and issues?
  • Beside eliminating gluten/grains and pasteurized dairy, pull out toxic bt corn.

Unless the label on the package says “organic” or “non-GMO” then we must assume it is from genetically modified corn.

Monsanto’s genetically modified Bt corn was genetically engineered to contain Bacillus thuringiensis, or Bt.

Bt is a bacteria that kills rootworm larvae and other bugs. The stomach of the insect actually explodes, killing the bug.

This was all done to increase crop yeild – so more money could be made.

In humans we are seeing gut issues as well.

“GE organisms actually become part of the bacteria in our digestive tracts and reproduce continuously inside us.” This could turn bacteria in our intestines into pesticide factories.

Bt toxins are found in 80% of unborn babies because mom is eating GMO corn food and  livestock fed GE corn.

Our food supply is being changed.

Damaged. Decimated. Killed. Destroyed.

Your digestive system is also being decimated by Monsanto’s Bt corn.

Americans regularly eat Bt corn products because it is found in almost all processed food, sugary drinks, restaurant food, school lunch food, frozen food, baked goods and more.

  • Ingredients like citric acid are made from corn, not lemons!

If the label doesn’t clearly state “non GMO corn” or “organic corn” then ask the manufacturer.

What’s wrong with GMO ingredients like Bt corn?

Dr Mercola reported a connection to 20 adverse health effects, including birth defects, infertility and cancer. He also shared many other scary GMO facts:

Children of workers on soybean farms sprayed with Roundup have shown a 70-fold increase in birth defects. Laboratory animals fed Roundup Ready soy develop serious reproductive disorders, including

  • sperm damage, uterine damage, and testicular changes.
  • In one study, half of the baby rats whose mothers were fed GE soy died within three weeks. The babies were also smaller and infertile.
  • In a study yet to be published, rat testicles turned blue, and by the third generation, the rats were sterile. Some even had hair growing inside their mouths!

It is time to take back our food!

Eat Real Food being grown naturally. Cattle grazing on grass, not GMO corn and soy.
