Dear Mr. Moreno,
I can no longer buy Maseca corn flour or tortillas, until Maseca stops using GMO corn and begins transitioning to 100% organic corn for all of its products.
I was shocked to learn that Maseca flour is contaminated with glyphosate, the active ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup weedkiller, and that the flour tested as high as 94.15% for the content of genetically modified organisms.
In March 2015, the World Health Organization classified glyphosate as a “probable” human carcinogen. Many studies link glyphosate to numerous illnesses, including cancer and liver and kidney disease. Studies also show that glyphosate disrupts the gut microbiome, which is critical for immune system and digestive health.
In August, a jury in San Francisco, after hearing evidence of how Monsanto covered up internal studies linking glyphosate to non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL), awarded Dewayne Johnson $289 million in compensatory and punitive damages. Johnson, a former school groundskeeper who routinely sprayed glyphosate on school properties, is terminally ill with NHL.
On your website, you claim that your corn flour and tortillas are “natural,” “healthy,” and “nutritious.” I no longer believe those claims, and can no longer buy your products until you stop using GMO corn and begin transitioning to 100% organic corn for all of you products.
