You make too many assumptions and overlook other things that are plainly questionable.
Just because the food does not kill a person directly it doesn't mean it won't over time. It isn't necessarily toxins that will do it it might be some genetic strain that makes something in our bodies react badly over time.
As for antibiotics they are far from harmless. They kill a lot more normal body cells than they do disease cells. In fact too much antibiotic will kill you.

Have you heard of the killer potato? Probably not as it has been pretty effectively covered up.
A synopsis of the story is this. Scientists were trying to develop a better potato. During the process they were testing the potato on rodents. At one point a certain strain of potato killed every animal that ate it. Turns out the modifications had altered the potato so that it was toxic to life. I forget the story exactly I read the book about it 12 years ago and it happened in the early 1990's. The scientists who tried to publisize this result were fired and sued to shut them up. It worked.

As Mark Twain once quipped, history may not repeat itself, but it does rhyme.

GMO is bad for living things IMHO.

so many other things we consume as consumers is not healthy.

FOOD THAT KILLS (full documentary)

'Sweet Misery' A Poisoned World

and then there was this...
"Bottom line: There are no aborted embryonic or fetal cells in any of PepsiCo’s final products.
But: Aborted cells are used in the development of artificial flavor enhancers by biotech company Senomyx, with which PepsiCo signed a four-year, $30 million agreement in 2010 for research and development."
"Senomyx develops patented flavor enhancers by using “proprietary taste receptor-based assay systems.” These receptors are made from HEK293. HEK stands for Human Embryonic Kidney cells. These cells, which were cloned, originally came from healthy, electively aborted human embryos. Using information from the human genome sequence, Senomyx has identified hundreds of taste receptors and currently owns 113 patents on their discoveries."

science is stranger than fiction.

have you heard of Codex Alimentarius?

I love popped corn. Weight Watchers and Dr. Oz now say it's OK to eat it. BUT - Regular popcorn from the store is genetically modified. It has a molecule of pesticide inserted in it. So I discovered I could taste the pesticide. After eating the popped corn I had a pesticide after taste in my mouth. That bothers me. I found a store that sells unmodified popcorn. Now I buy it there. It doesn't give me the after taste.

Puffer (not popper)
