The real problem with #WhiteSkittles. (Hint: It’s the #GMOs, stupid!) #Skittles #GMO

Here are the ingredients of regular Skittles:

Sugar (GMO), Corn Syrup (GMO), Hydrogenated Palm Kernel Oil; less than 2% of: Citric Acid, Tapioca Dextrin, Modified Corn Starch (GMO), Natural and Artificial Flavors, Colors (Titanium Dioxide, Red 40 Lake, Yellow 6 Lake, Yellow 5 Lake, Blue 2 Lake, Blue 1 Lake, Yellow 6, Red 40, Yellow 5, Blue 1), Sodium Citrate, Carnauba Wax

This is what the World Wildlife Fund has to say about palm oil:

Large areas of tropical forests and other ecosystems with high conservation values have been cleared to make room for vast monoculture oil palm plantations – destroying critical habitat for many endangered species, including rhinos, elephants and tigers.

In some cases, the expansion of plantations has lead to the eviction of forest-dwelling peoples.

In a nutshell, palm oil is an environmental disaster. It disrupts the natural habitats of wild animals.

This is what CNN has to say about so-called “natural flavors”:

So, what distinguishes an artificial flavor from a “natural” flavor? Not much, according to Andrews. “The largest difference is that natural flavors are coming from natural sources. The original ingredient is found in nature and then purified and extracted and added back into the food.”
But that doesn’t necessarily mean the “natural flavors” in your blueberry granola bar are simply crushed-up blueberries.
Rather, they probably consist of a chemical originally found in blueberries, enhanced and added into your food in a lab.
And this is what CSPI has to say about food dyes:

Commonly used food dyes, such as Yellow 5 and Yellow 6, and Red 40, pose risks including hyperactivity in children. Some also pose a risk of cancer (like Red 3) and allergic reactions.

In 2008, because of the link with hyperactivity and related behavioral problems, the Center for Science in the Public Interest petitioned the FDA to ban the use of these dyes. The British government and the European Union have taken actions that are virtually ending the use of most food dyes throughout Europe.

Considering the adverse impact of these chemicals on children, and considering how easily they can be replaced with safe, natural ingredients, it’s time to get rid of them altogether from the United States and Canada.

White Skittle contain the same GMO ingredients as the regular rainbow variety of Skittles, except White Skittles don’t contain artificial food dyes.

You would think Social Justice Warrior morons would actually care about the use of GMO ingredients in White Skittles – and rainbow Skittles for that matter – as well as palm oil which displaces rhinos, hippos, and elephants from their natural habitats in Africa.

But no. According to the SJW left, fuck the GMOs, and fuck the animals. It’s all about racism.

White Skittles are not racist, you illiterate morons. They are genetically modified junk food.

Anybody who eats White Skittles – or rainbow Skittles for that matter – deserve to have morbid obesity, diabetes, and cancer.
