Half of All Children Will Be Autistic by 2025, Warns Senior Research Scientist at MIT
December 23, 2014

A fellow panelist reported that after Dr. Seneff’s presentation, “All of the 70 or so people in attendance were squirming, likely because they now had serious misgivings about serving their kids, or themselves, anything with corn or soy, which are nearly all genetically modified and thus tainted with Roundup and its glyphosate.”

Dr. Seneff noted the ubiquity of glyphosate’s use. Because it is used on corn and soy, all soft drinks and candies sweetened with corn syrup and all chips and cereals that contain soy fillers have small amounts of glyphosate in them, as do our beef and poultry since cattle and chicken are fed GMO corn or soy. Wheat is often sprayed with Roundup just prior to being harvested, which means that all non-organic bread and wheat products would also be sources of glyphosate toxicity. The amount of glyphosate in each product may not be large, but the cumulative effect (especially with as much processed food as Americans eat) could be devastating.

Nestle-owned Gerber advises moms-to-be to "eat right for you and your baby." What's the point of eating right for baby when Gerber feeds your newborn their unlabeled, toxic pesticide-laced GMOs? We think Gerber needs to screw on their head. After that, they need to remove GMOs and get Non-GMO Project verified for all of their products. Until then, BOYCOTT GERBER!

Parents, watch part 3 of this interview and see what this Dr. has to say about our government agencies.

Kathleen Hallal, one of the founding members of Moms Across America, interviews Dr Don Huber, a whistle blower in the food world. It's in four parts and if you can't take the time to watch all four, at least watch Part 3 and 4.

Dr. Huber is Professor Emeritus of Plant Pathology at Purdue University, a land grant institution, and has been studying plants for 55 years. He has received various awards for his scientific accomplishments and contributions to government. He was Cereal Pathologist at the University of Idaho for 8 years before joining the Department of Botany & Plant Pathology at Purdue University in 1971. His agricultural research the past 50 years has focused on the epidemiology and control of soil borne plant pathogens with emphasis on microbial ecology, cultural and biological controls, and physiology of host parasite relationships. He’s in his 80s, and he is also a father, a grandfather and has had a 41-year military career as a retired Colonel.

Part 1
Time Code List
1:50 Thank you for meeting with me
3:05 Dr. Huber's background
4:45 What are GMOs?
5:49 Is it true that GMOs are created using viruses and bacteria?
8:10 Are any of those viruses or bacteria still active when we eat the food?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WlztFOWxdqo

Part 2
Question: How many ways are glyphosate containing herbicides used on crops that end up in our food supply?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n7U2rEYHbFA

Part 3
Time Code List
0:01 Which crops exactly would be sprayed with glyphosate that mothers would have to look out for in the super market?
2:14 I was completely unaware that GMOs were grown in home gardens. I thought it was strictly for industrial agricultural production. Don't they sell BT corn at Walmart?
2:46 Please tell us what you are being told about the health of farm workers exposed to glyphosate. Has the application rate of glyphosate changed since 1996?
4:10 Why did the EPA raise the residue limits? Endocrine disruption (EDCs)?
5:26 Have GMOs been proven safe by the FDA?
7:03 What do scientists say about GMOs in the world community consensus?
8:35 Recap - FDA and safety, FDA scientists studies.

(Note that Dr. Huber said animals won't eat gmo corn but, remember, the meat you are buying in your grocery store is from animals that are forced to eat this gmo corn. I am greatful for Autumn's Harvest Farm, right here in Seneca County for going organic, non gmo.)

U.S. Hospitals Expose Critically Ill Children to Harmful Glyphosate Herbicides

Posted on Jan 5 2015 - 9:02pm by Sustainable Pulse

Moms Across America Founder Zen Honeycutt stated Monday; “It is appalling that our health care providers have been led to believe this feeding liquid is safe. Our children and loved ones believe that our health institutions are supporting their immune system and recovery, instead they are being fed a liquid which contains a herbicide that could be seriously damaging their health.”

Glyphosate Found in Feeding Tube Liquid

Posted by Zen Honeycutt · January 05, 2015 11:15 AM

Further comments on the findings:

This report is absolutely ground breaking for parents everywhere. We need to keep our children safe from these toxic chemicals. Our regulatory agencies have failed us and have let Roundup be carelessly used for too long. The worse part? The American public doesn't have the right to know which food doesn't have it. This must stop and is reason enough to avoid the use of any GMO technology that is tied to this chemical.- Vani Hari Food Babe

"As a mother I am very disturbed by these results. Working as a pediatric Physical Therapist I met children with feeding issues who depend on tube feedings for their entire lives. Children who experience trauma and are recovering from car accidents, shootings, cancers, surgeries and other illnesses may require these tube feedings for days, weeks, or years. I have long questioned the nutritionally poor and inflammatory ingredients in these feedings but am devastated to find out that they are contaminated with poison. Our most vulnerable children, and our children healing from overwhelming trauma, deserve better." Sarah Cusack, MPT, CHHC

"Eeh gads Glyphosate in Pedisure is frightening. As a cardiologist concerned about herbicides, we now know that RoundUp effects heart tissue and facilitates serious heart rhythm problems(http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25448876). To think we are exposing infants to this same toxin cannot be tolerated". -Joel Kahn MD

"The high levels found of course, don't address the issue of bioaccumulation in children. If Pediasure is given to sick children, we have no idea of their rates of clearance, liver function, etc. Tests done on children prior to the administration of these compounds. In addition, the issue of bioaccumulation in children has not been addressed. Their ability to clear these toxins has not been evaluated, particularly when they are ill and may have altered renal function." - Dr. Michelle Perro, Pediatrician

The question of bioaccumulation has been addressed and written about by Michael Antoniou:Antoniou M, Habib MEM, Howard CV, et al. Teratogenic effects of glyphosate-based herbicides: Divergence of regulatory decisions from scientific evidence. J Env Anal Toxicol. 2012;S4:006. doi:10.4172/2161-0525.S4-006.

"I find it astonishing that babies and children with cancer are being provided with nutrients through a feeding tube that are contaminated with glyphosate. It ought to be obvious to medical professionals that it is essential to assure that as few toxic chemicals as possible are present in enteral nutrition provided to seriously ill children. This is a direct delivery system for glyphosate to the blood and to the tissues. It should be undeniable that certified organic sources are the only viable option in such a situation."- Stephanie Seneff MIT scientist and co author of the Glyphosate Papers

The data produced regarding the levels of glyphosate in our food, water and medicines the better. Even though this testing is not validated it does give a strong clue as to how ubiquitous glyphosate is in the U.S. food supply system. The question the EPA and USDA should be asking themselves is are they willing to risk public health by relying on short-term industry sponsored safety studies on glyphosate and all other pesticides. It is time for the regulators to support long-term independent science to deterime just how damaging glyphosate pesticides are for this and future generations. While these studies are being completed all glyphosate-based herbicides should be removed from the shelves." - Henry Rowlands, Sustainable Pulse



"I have reviewed the lab report dated January 2, 2015 from Microbe Inotech Lab for Moms Across America and can tell you that your results for Pediasure Enteral Nutritional drink are consistent with our lab results of April 18, 2004 for soy based Enfamil ProSobee liquid infant baby formulas.

The Moms Infotech Lab report for ELISA glyphosate analysis showed 6 out of 20 positive IDs for Glyphosate residue in the product. This represents 30% of the samples which tested positive. The highest concentration found was in sample #5 which contained 111 ppb (parts per billion). The lowest detectable reading for milk-like products with this method of analysis is 76 ppb and the lowest amount positively detected in the Mom's lab report was found in sample #7 and contained 80 ppb.

These results, DO NOT necessarily mean that the other 14 samples were free of glyphosate, they may also have glyphosate, only at undetectable levels. These results only show those samples, that could be positively identified by the ELISA method of analysis. Had another method been chosen, such as HPLC-MS with a lower detection limit, possibly more samples would have shown glyphosate residue contamination. We know HPLC-MS testing is 3 times more expensive, but the ELISA results are quick and now show follow up testing is necessary, especially by government agencies who are supposed to protect public health and interests.

Your results and our results, both show measurable amounts of Glyphosate contained in infant formula products and this is most concerning. We found 170 ppb of glyphosate in Enfamil ProSobee liquid infant baby formula, so it will be interesting to compare this result when you receive the report for your infant formula samples.

Make no mistake about it, the levels of glyphosate found in these tests, are levels that do cause harm and damage to the microbiome which comprises 70% of the immune system. This will affect both present and future health. Glyphosate is an insidious, hazardous chemical which should have never been brought to market nor allowed to contaminate the food supply of the USA and that of the developing world.

The levels found in these lab tests, can cause irreparable damage to a developing child, as well as harm to an adult. After all, it is the bacteria of our microbiome and even greater, that of the biosphere which controls the destiny of all living organisms, from birth to the grave." -Anthony Samsel Independant scientist and co author of the Glyphosate Papers



What to do?

Studies show gut bacteria improvements and symptoms of autism are reduced with probiotics. The best form of probiotics are whole food such as raw organic saurkraut, vegetables, organic yogurt, organic miso, and organic keifer. The reason for this is that the probiotics ( good bacteria) have been shown to restore the gut flora and therefore rebuild the gut brain connection and the immune system.


Unlike any other time in history, American moms, caregivers and all citizens around the world must be concerned with their gut flora, which harbors 70% of the immune system. We moms have seen that when we take preventative measures to avoid GMOs and related pesticides, and ad fermented vegetables and/or probiotics, our children's and our own health improves.

We hope this information is brought to the attention of hospital directors and that they switch to organic feeding tube liquid options (see solutions page for possible option) as soon as possible. Also parents with children on feeding tubes, please look into alternatives such as bone broth, organic smoothies, probiotic and fermeted vegetables and saurkraut juice. Although we are not doctors, and we recommend you seek appropriate care, our mothers have seen improvements with the foods and diets mentioned on our "Solutions" page.

Thank you to all our dedicated supporters and sponsors who donated to get these tests done.

Experts from the European Food Safety Authority propose that some guidance levels for acceptable exposure to two neonicotinoid insecticides be lowered while further research is carried out to provide more reliable data on developmental neurotoxicity. Recent research raises concerns about the potential of acetamiprid and imidacloprid to damage the developing human nervous system - in particular the brain. When GMO seeds are treated with a neonic, it is systemically absorbed into the plant. NO THANKS, GERBER. WE THINK IT'S BEST TO BOYCOTT YOU INSTEAD!

Just Because Science Can Genetically Engineer Foods, Doesn't Mean We Should

So the question is why? Why am I part of a huge, and growing, group not willing to believe the “facts” (according to its proponents) about the benefits of genetic modification?

The basic answer is simple: trust.

Science has a credibility problem. It has for too long been used to distort food and twist the natural into long lasting Twinkies and nutritionally void Lunchables. Tobacco was good for us, we were told, and DDT was fine to spray on our fields. Food dyes are all still considered safe for our kids to eat, and “natural” foods, we are made to believe, are made of naturally occurring ingredients.

In all cases we have been misled, and today it is not “false fears” that has bred skeptical consumers, it is experience.

This article was posted TODAY by the Institute of Science in Society. The study finds that gmos are harmful to health.

They advise to take immediate action to BAN GMOs from homes and local communities.

"To conclude

GMOs are once again found to be deleterious for health in a feeding trial that last no longer than 90 days. And within that time, the most widespread piece of transgenic DNA found in the GM diet, the CaMV 35S promoter, was found transferred horizontally into the animals’ tissues at high frequencies. The CaMV 35S promoter is not the only hazardous piece of transgenic DNA, there are similar aggressive promoters designed to make genes express out of context, as well as genes coding for antibiotics and other dangerous functions, together with numerous recombination hotspots that enhance horizontal gene transfer; all of which contribute to making all GMOs unsafe. That is indeed the conclusion from research carried out by scientists independent of the industry up to now, which fully corroborates what farmers have been witnessing in their livestock and doctors in their patients for years [14]. People need to take immediate action to ban GMOs from their own home and local communities. Governments should recall all GMOs from the market. And companies and regulators should face prosecution for causing damages to health and criminal negligence."

Mom Receives Glyphosate Task Force Studies on Glyphosate Submitted to the EPA

Posted by Zen Honeycutt 1630.20GS on December 02, 2014

Six months ago today, June 1, a few days after our meeting with the EPA, I requested per my right as a US citizen, by way of the Freedom of Information Act, to receive copies of all of the documents submitted to the EPA regarding glyphosate. Never in my life did I imagine I would be asking for potentially thousands of pages of scientific studies about a toxic chemical. I loved science when I was in sixth grade, even imagined being one someday. But I did not think I was good at math, all the rote learning without understanding was more condescending than the looks my math teacher gave me, so I dismissed the possibility of being a scientist and headed down a more artistic path as a designer.

I have a creative background, but I could not make up what I am about to share with you.

It is incredible that any scientist or non scientist could look at this information think glyphosate safe.

I received 9 files, ranging from 67-293 pages. Most were the actual studies, two were assesments of other studies. I do not believe I received all of the studies submitted to the EPA, and will be asking for the full set of documents. What I did receive however, in my opinion, is reason enough not to re register glyphosate.

Please join us in imploring hospital directors across the world to get glyphosate OUT of the feeding tube liquid given to our critically ill children. It is unconscionable to knowingly give sick children something that destroys gut bacteria ( where 70% of the immune system is!). Moms will not accept this for our kids and we demand that hospital directors switch to an organic brand of feeding tube liquid!

Our friends at MomsRising and Campaign for Safe Cosmetics are petitioning L'Oreal because carcinogens were found in the cosmetics. This is another example of the pervasive influence of chemical companies throughout our lives.

"The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics found that L’Oreal’s kids' products aren't free of potentially cancer-causing chemicals either!

Their investigation identified DMDM hydantoin in L'Oreal Kids 2-in-1 shampoos, a chemical that releases formaldehyde to preserve the product. Formaldehyde has been designated a carcinogen by the International Agency for Research on Cancer and the United States National Toxicology Program.[2]

Companies like Johnson & Johnson have already removed formaldehyde-releasing chemicals from its children's products,[3] proving L’Oreal could and should be removing these chemicals as well.

Women and families need to tell L’Oreal that we really ARE worth it, and we deserve personal care products without toxic chemicals that could cause cancer.

* Join the chorus of moms and family members telling L’Oreal to remove chemicals that could cause cancer from their products now!

Here we go, another doctor speaking out...

Streamed live on Jan 12, 2015

Dr. Buckley will review exactly how the destruction of our gut bacteria from glyphosate can lead to inflammation in the brain and body, leading to the sky rocketing illnesses we are seeing in America today. Glyphosate is sprayed in GMO food and on non orgnaic food as a drying agent before harvest. It does not dry, wash or cook off and it has been found in water, air, rain, urine, breast milk and pediatric feeding tube liquid.

36 minutes, be patient. Brought to you by Moms Across America

Dangerous Loophole in Law Permits Food Companies to Market Novel Chemicals Without Safety Disclosures

December 17, 2014

Dr. Mercola

The fact that processed foods contain added ingredients that aren't necessarily food isn't secret knowledge. A simple read-through of just about any processed food label will tip you off to this fact with its listing of impossible-to-pronounce chemicals.

Many of these additives have questionable safety profiles, or none at all, since only a small percentage has ever been properly tested. This situation has become the norm courtesy of a regulatory system that favors industry profitability over public health and safety. This too is a well-known fact by many.

What may come as a complete shock, however, is that companies are allowed to add chemicals to their food without disclosing what they are to the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), or having to prove their safety before putting them into use.

All they have to do is have their expert evaluate it on their terms. There is no independent third party objective evaluation. This is reprehensibly irresponsible on the part of governmental agencies that are assigned the task of looking out for our health. According to EcoWatch

California’s strawberry industry is hooked on dangerous pesticides

The loophole also expanded a key market for Dow, allowing it to sell millions more pounds of chemicals across a state that provides the United States with nearly half of all its fruits, vegetables and nuts.

An American mom took on Monsanto.

Full Account of Monsanto Shareholder Meeting Jan 30, 2015

Posted by Zen Honeycutt · February 01, 2015

I am here to say on behalf of struggling parents, STOP POISONING our children! Glyphosate—a patented antibiotic—has been detected in the air, water, food, our children’s urine, our breast milk, Fruit Loops and in nutrients fed to children with cancer, at levels THOUSANDS of times higher than what has been shown to destroy GUT BACTERIA—where 70% of the immune system lies.

Shareholder’s must know that: Without proper gut bacteria our bodies cannot make Tryptophan, Melatonin or Serotonin. Serotonin regulates insulin—and therefore diabetes, which is on course to bankrupt US Healthcare in 13 years.

Without serotonin and melatonin, our bodies cannot prevent insomnia, depression, anxiety, and bipolar disorder. 57.7 million American have mental illness today.

When the gut bacteria is destroyed, food particles and pathogens escape through the intestines, causing allergies and autoimmune diseases. Allergy ER visits have increased 265% since GMOs.

The coming food disaster

Top 10 Destructive Nutrition Lies Ever Told

July 16, 2014

There is no shortage of health advice out there, and no shortage of bad advice to go along with it. Some misguided notions are harmless—but others are outright dangerous and can lead you down the road to chronic health problems and may even trim years off your life.

Environmental Toxins Linked to Rise in Autism

April 02, 2014

By Dr. Mercola (Fyi: he has donated millions of dollars in the fight to get gmo's labeled.)

Three decades ago, when I was still in medical school, autism affected one in 10,000 children.1, 2 What changed between then and now to cause one in 50 children3 to become autistic?

Mounting research—not to mention plain logic—indicates that brain disorders are the result of excessive exposure to toxins from multiple sources—including the mother, while in utero. One 2005 study4 by the Environmental Working Group (EWG) found that blood samples from newborns contained an average of 287 toxins.

Cable companies are famous for high prices and poor service. Several rank as the most hated companies in America. Now, they're attacking the Internet–their one competitor and our only refuge–with plans to charge websites arbitrary fees and slow (to a crawl) any sites that won't pay up. If they win, the Internet will never be the same.

Erin Brockovich

Before the sides line up to shoot at each other (and me), pay very close attention to what my question is.

What is wrong with a consumer's Right to Know?

If you want patent protection... and you want to sell your products to me, don't I have a Right to Know that is has been genetically altered. What is the problem with notification? What is there to hide? If it is safe... great; tell me and let me make my decision informed.

The Deny Americans the Right to Know – or DARK – Act is expected to be reintroduced in Congress any day now. This reprehensible anti-labeling bill would both rule out any federal labeling requirement for genetically engineered foods and deny states the right to enact their own labeling legislation. In other words, if the DARK Act passes, the fight for genetic engineering (GE) labeling is over.

In order to stop the DARK Act in its tracks, we need to make sure that every single supporter of GE labeling is heard loud and clear. That’s why this week I am joining forces with activists around the country in a National Week of Action to call on Congress to oppose the DARK Act and support mandatory GE labeling.

Monsanto, the Grocery Manufacturers Association (an industry front group) and others have already spent over $100 million to keep consumers in the dark in Washington, California, Oregon and Colorado alone. And with millions more at their disposal, you can bet that Big Food will be pulling out all the stops to get this reprehensible bill passed this year.

Let’s prove that the American people are louder than Big Food lobbyists.

Moms Across America

It's NOT Just Vaccines!

Posted by Zen Honeycutt 1633.40GS on February 12, 2015

The views expressed below are the views of Zen Honeycutt, not the entirety of Moms Across America supporters. Please note our motto is "Empowered Moms, Healthy Kids" and this encompasses all areas of knowledge and health. We wish for all moms and people the freedom to make choices to have their families be healthy.

Every day now there is a piece on the news about measles and the anti vaccination scare. Heated discussions have divided family, friends and neighbors. I experienced this myself when my neighbor and I disagreed about required vaccination ( I will not vaccinate my children any further because they are auto immune deficient and I am aware of the risks) and she did not invite my kids to her kids birthday party for the first time in years. They were very sad. I was very sad. I am pretty sure she is very sad...we were good friends. Now we are not.

This issue is dividing us..and threatens to divide us even more with talk of state and federal mandates. I hear, if pushed, federal mandates will cause families to not just avoid people at birthday parties, many will leave the country rather than vaccinate. Families will be torn apart, possibly for the rest of their lives.

The problem with this issue is that no one in the media is talking about the whole issue. The whole issue is not that vaccines are or are not hurting our kids. That is only part of the issue.

Think about it, mercury was in vaccines since 1929. There was no huge spike of autism then. Kids were injected with mercury for decades. I was, all my friends were, no one I knew got autism. But then in 1996 there was a huge spike in Autism. Doctors say "our office was flooded with children with autism in the late 1990's." What happened then?

Vaccines, PR, and The News Cycle

by Kristen Michaelis

What I learned disillusioned me. If you don’t think you’re ready to come down this rabbit hole with me, I suggest you stop reading now.

...astroturfers are also taught to use psychologically jarring words and turn arguments against people rather than ideas and facts. So they’ll throw out inflammatory language like “quack,” “lies,” “conspiracy,” and “psuedo.”

Parental Rights Foundation Launches Educational Website

-- March 19, 2015

The Parental Rights Foundation, a new 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with the purpose of studying and educating Americans on the state of parental rights in our country, has just launched its new website at parentalrightsfoundation.org.

The site is expected to grow in coming months as the Foundation researches and produces academic “white papers” on topics relevant to parental rights. These papers and other studies will make up a significant portion of the site’s content.

The site also serves as a portal for those who wish to make a donation to support the efforts of the Foundation, or to sign up for news and study updates by email.

Even in its fledgling state, parentalrightsfoundation.org features a brief history of parental rights in America, including a review of the Supreme Court’s parental rights decisions; a section on the Supreme Court and Treaty Law as it impacts parental rights; and The State of Parental Rights in America 2015, which is cross-posted on parentalrights.org.

"When we decided to put poison pesticides on our food, I don't know who thought that was a good idea but, it's reeking havoc with our gi tract. So when the toxins come in and end up in the gi tract, they eat through the barrier wall, leak out, that's that leaky gut you're hearing about that so many people have; roam through the blood stream looking for organs of opportunity, their favorite organ being the brain because that's 65 percent fat, and toxins like to live in fat and here is what is happening to our kids and every age group..."

Top Pharma-Brand Of Children’s Vitamins Contains Aspartame, GMOs, & Other Hazardous Chemicals

In summary, Bayer’s Flintstone’s vitamin brand is far from a natural product, and the consumer should be aware of the unintended, adverse health effects that may occur as a result of using it.

Syngenta makes a whole mess of extremely toxic chemicals, glyphosate parquat, atrazine and one which is so toxic Traxion (44.9% glyphosate) that it is not even allowed in the USA, only Canada.

Moms Across America's Zen Honeycutt speaks in Sydney, Australia - March 24, 2015

"I'm not a scientist and I'm not a doctor. I'm an expert Mom. I'm the expert of my children. You're your children's expert. If you're not a parent, you are your expert."

"A concerned Mom does better research than the FBI."

"Gmo's are a chemical delivery system to humans."

"Glyphosate stayes viable in dark salty water for up to 351 days, does not biodegrade like they say it does, this has been proven so when I went in front of the Monsanto Shareholder meeting this past January and spoke to them about their products harming our children on behalf of mothers, I said to them what is in our womb? Dark salty water and what is the size of a fetus? It's the size of a shrimp. You must be responsible for the contamination of our children and the pollution of our planet and I believe many of them got it."

"We have the knowledge and power to do something about this."

Erin Brockovich - 5/8/15

After a great deal of research and personal thought, I am opposed to the continued policy and practice of drinking water fluoridation; I believe this harmful practice must be ended immediately. Public drinking water is a basic human right; and its systematic use as a dispensary of a substance for medical purposes is deplorable.

Shocking revelations are surfacing in the growing scandal; real harm from fluoride affects people of all races and ages, but one of the especially shocking aspects of the scandal is how dental and government officials responded when The Lillie Center for Energy & Health Studies publicized the science showing disproportionate fluoride harm to the African American community. Minority community and civil rights leaders have been speaking out, including Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s niece Alveda King. Ms. King recently posted on my Facebook page that I should keep shining the light on Fluoridegate. Ms. King also called for public hearings, and I agree: it's time for meaningful public hearings. There are numerous documents and aspects to this scandal that investigative bodies and investigative journalists will want to examine.

Now is the time for professional and consumer advocacy groups that have blindly lent their name to support drinking water fluoridation to rescind that permission. How many of them actually conducted their own reviews before allowing their name to be used? And now is the time to ask the hard questions about the nature of the relationship between trade groups, our surgeon generals, and other government officials concerning drinking water fluoridation.

As a mother and grandmother, I am concerned about families in fluoridated communities using fluoridated drinking water from their tap to mix infant milk formula. I am concerned that the National Research Council of the National Academy of Sciences has designated kidney patients, children, diabetics and seniors as "susceptible subpopulations" that are especially vulnerable to harm from ingested fluorides. How can we in good conscience give susceptible persons an uncontrolled amount of fluorides in water? I also strongly support Drinking water utility professionals, many I know many deplore and feel guilty about the idea of dispensing medication through drinking water and working with the dangerous fluoridation chemicals.

Drinking water fluoridation takes away people's freedom to choose what they take into their bodies. Low income families may not have the financial means to avoid over dosing with their drinking water.

I call for four avenues of action:

1. An immediate repeal of all laws that require or enable fluoridation.
2. Holding of Fluoridegate hearings at both national and state levels.
3. For professional associations and advocacy groups to rescind allowing their names to be used to support drinking water fluoridation.
4. For key research to immediately begin on how to safely remove fluorides that have accumulated in people's bones and pineal glands.

My career has been about making people aware of harmful exposures and the deception that often accompanies those exposures. Drinking water fluoridation is harmful, we've been deceived to believe it is safe, and with new found knowledge we must all act now to stop it.

So would Schumer vote for this bill with this change, knowing full well that it would take away a state's right to gmo labeling? Sounds to me like his priorities are in the wrong place.

Please contact Schumer and Gillibrand and tell them that when it comes to you and your family's health, there is no "compromise." Tell them to vote "no" to any TPP bill that includes legislation prohibiting state's from making their own rules about gmo labeling. (In addition to all the other good reasons why this bill should be voted down.)

According to Democratic leadership aides, Senators Harry Reid of Nevada, the Democratic leader, and Chuck Schumer of New York, the No. 3 Democrat, have proposed a compromise to Republican leaders: First, hold a separate vote on legislation aimed at discouraging so-called currency manipulation by American trading partners, which could be vetoed by the president. Then, wrap the fast-track authority he is seeking with a more encompassing bill, including assistance for displaced workers, extension of an African trade accord and other trade enforcement measures.

Landee Crier

I live in a country where my child can submit to an abortion and a vaccination without my knowledge or consent. However, if that same child does not want to undergo chemotherapy, she will be taken away from me and forced to undergo modern day poisoning by the state.

I live in a country where I'm allowed to smoke and drink and destroy my health because I'm "free", but I cannot use a natural mineral to cure disease or I could be jailed.

I live in a country where it's legal to spray cancer-causing pesticides on the food my family eats and it's legal to put the neurotoxin fluoride in my drinking water. But if I want to boost my children's immunity with vit A and C, instead of vaccines, my children will be kicked out of school.

I live in a country where it's legal to kill my unborn child, but once that child is a citizen, I am no longer viewed as the best person to make decisions for that child.

I live in a country where I could be fired from my job for refusing a flu shot that is only 18% effective and loaded with the neurotoxin mercury.

I live in a country owned by pharmaceutical companies and my children have been sold for profit. I am a slave. A slave to corporate America. My children are not mine. They belong to the state.

BUT, I live in a country that was founded on freedom and liberty. That blood still runs through me. The desire to be free. If you are afraid to stand up to your government, then it is time to replace that government.

When you live in fear, you have tyranny. When the government fears you, you have liberty. Stand up and the country I just described can be changed. We the people must change it. We cannot rely on the politicians to do what's right anymore because they are all bought and owned and they are selling us out too. Stand up to the bullying and discrimination from our own government and take this country back! It belongs to the people, not greedy drug companies!

How Johnson & Johnson May Be Poisoning Your Child

Mar 27

However, reasonable as this may sound, there are two rather obvious “problems” with their reply:

1. They’re already selling a carcinogen-free version of its baby shampoo in other countries, so obviously no complicated reformulation would be necessary

2. The Johnson & Johnson’s “Naturals” brand does not contain either of these chemicals, but, it costs about twice as much as their regular baby shampoo. That makes TWO carcinogen-free formulas at their disposal, which makes the line “We are completing this reformulation as quickly as we can safely and responsibly do so,” seem like a rather strange excuse

The countries already receiving quaternium-15-free Johnson & Johnson products include:

Honeybee Swarm...Don't Panic!!

Honeybees can be attributed to 1/3 of our food supply. They are important to our economy as well as our ecology. They are threatened due to pesticides, disease, and pests that attack them.
If you have a swarm clustered in your bush, on your fence, or the hood of your car, don't break out the wasp spray!
If they are in the wall of a shed or your attic, we can help.
Call or text the Seneca Bee Rescue.
Anywhere in the Finger Lakes area.
We will come out, safely capture the bees, and relocate them to a secure area where they can again become productive members society!
In return we will leave you with a jar of honey.
Write down this number. Tell your friends and neighbors. Save the Bees!
We are not an extermination service. We don't do wasp removal.
We are beekeepers looking to save this important and endangered species.

Hillary Clinton: Monsanto’s Next Poster Puppet

by Christina Sarich - Posted on May 24, 2015

– but she doesn’t represent me. That’s because she supports GMOs.

Hillary Rodham Clinton doesn’t represent the American people, either. Recently, she stated her desire to get industry representatives around a table to have an “intensive discussion” about “how the federal government could help biotechs with insurance against [financial] risk.”

That’s right – when the news comes out, and it will (WHO recently declared chemicals like glyphosate ‘probably carcinogenic’) – she wants to make sure the pubic has no recourse against these eco-terrorism companies.

US Government Admits Americans Have Been Overdosed on Fluoride

May 12, 2015

Yet water utilities administer this drug without a prescription, at the behest of the government, without any idea of who will get what dose and for how long, and without monitoring for side effects.

Fluoride is added to drinking water to, in theory, prevent a disease (tooth decay), and as such becomes a medicine by FDA definition. While proponents claim this is no different than adding vitamin D to milk, fluoride is not an essential nutrient. Moreover, fluoride isn't even approved by the FDA for the prevention of cavities.

Erin Brockovich

Drinking Water Disinfection Byproducts are becoming an increasing concern to our health...which is why I have long been an advocate of organic chemical removal as opposed to the practice of adding ammonia to Drinking Water to sequester these reactions.

Chloramine = Chlorine + Ammonia

This is a cheap, lazy, dangerous, "quick fix" to a complex problem in Drinking Water... tell your Drinking Water provider to stop this practice and clean the water like they are supposed to.


Scientists trace cancer-causing chemical in drinking water back to methadone

By Nsikan Akpan May 27, 2015

When water flows from the many pipes of our homes, the first stop is a wastewater treatment factory, where most hazardous chemicals and microbes are removed. But if you live downstream from any population, then you’re likely drinking someone’s wastewater, says Arizona State University environmental engineer Paul Westerhoff.

But unlike some forms of pharmaceutical pollution, the danger of methadone waste doesn’t come from the drug itself, but from a chemical reaction with a common wastewater disinfectant.

A little known fact about methadone is that approximately 28 percent of the drug does not get absorbed by the human body after ingestion, but instead, it gets excreted in urine.

Erin Brockovich 6/10/15

These dangerous chemicals are on their way to the Chesapeake Bay... where are the safety measures to prevent this from happening again, and again, and again, and again, and again...

You won't be seeing this on network news...

York and Adams county officials have said people in the following municipalities should not swim, boat or fish in the Conewago Creek in the following municipalities:

York County, Paradise Township, Dover Township, Washington Township, Warrington Township, Conewago Township, Newberry Township, East Manchester Township, York Haven, East Berlin, Adams County, Hamilton Township, Mt. Pleasant Township, New Oxford, Oxford Township, Reading Township

Chemicals from an Adams County fertilizer business that caught fire Monday had flowed into the creek and colored the water brown and purple. Waterways Conservation Officer Dan Nietupski said more than 20,000 fish have been killed, and the number could grow as the contamination moves downstream toward the Susquehanna River.

What Zen Honeycutt has to say to the European Mothers - Zuerich, 03.11.2015


Zuerich [ENA] Zen Honeycutt from Moms Across America, here the Website: www.momsacrossamerica.com was visiting Switzerland and spoke at the International Demonstration for GMO-Free Foods on August 22nd in Zuerich. Why did she take this trip and what message did she share with the mothers in EU? Exclusively.

Hello Zen, I am very excited to 'meet' with you for this interview. You visited Switzerland last month, what was the reason for you to be there? Zen Honeycutt: "I am thrilled to be able to share with European mothers and citizens both now and when I visited Switzerland, what is happening in America. I traveled to Switzerland, thanks to the generosity of my hosts, to share the reality of our food supply and the impact on our health. Americans have GMOs in 75% of our food supply, some 85-90+% of our major crops are GMO. 80% of GMOs are genetically engineered to withstand glyphosate (Roundup), the most widely used herbicide in the world.

After 20 years directly spraying our food with glyphosate, we are realizing that it does not dry, wash or cook off, we are eating it and it is toxic and harmful to life. However, we American mothers are seeing that when we remove GMOs and toxic pesticides due to chemical farming, our children get better, and we have the science to back up our findings. This is what I came to share with Europeans. I want you to prevent the harm that is happening in America from happening to your children and loved ones. It is not enough for my family to eat organic. My son’s future spouses are out there somewhere, and are likely eating GMOs.

I want them to, if they wish, to be able to experience the profound love that it is to have one’s own healthy child. We hear from thousands of supporters that GMOs and related pesticides are impacting their health and fertility. Who knows who our children will marry someday? In fact, right now in America, every single family loves someone who is sick. In other countries where they allow GMOs, we also see an increase of illness, especially in children. This is a global food supply system and a global issue that impacts all of us."

Are there any regulations when it comes to marketing/selling GMOs in the United States? Zen: "The American public has been kept in the dark. Our media, who is funded by chemical, food and pharmaceutical companies, did not tell us for decades that GMOs were in our food supply. Mandatory labeling of GMOs in the USA has not been required. We are fighting for GMO labeling right now with Senate Bill 511 and House Bill 913. If HR 1599/the DARK ACT (Denying Americans the Right to Know) passes this fall, it will wipe out the labeling laws that have passed in three states, the sacred protective boundaries of indigenous crops of the Native Americans, allow “Natural” labeling to include GMOs and disallow the FDA from ever testing GMOs for safety.

It make GMO labeling voluntary. When GMOs were first introduced in the late 1990’s many countries, 64 now in fact, decided to label or ban GMOs. Not America. Our regulatory agencies/FDA decided that they would be considered safe until proven to cause harm. Our government decided to disregard the precautionery principal and instead made us the science experiement.”Let’s see if GMOs are safe”, they essentially said, and now we are seeing the results."

What kind of problems arise for the people of the United States due to GMOs being freely used without labeling? Zen: "1. People don’t know what GMOs are or if they are in their food. There is confusion amongst farmers and consumers, secrecy by the food manufacturers, corruption by large corporations, theft and pollution of life ie: seeds, a massive lack of integrity in our food system, betrayal by our leaders and a lack of trust in our government. Our food system has been hijacked by corporations who donate to our government and make sure the regulatory agencies keep raising the levels of toxic chemicals allowed on our food and deregulating the planting of GMOs. People do not have choice if they don’t know.

2. There are hundreds of GMOs in the pipeline and once these seeds are out, they can never be taken back. Nature is being polluted with a DNA mutagen, foreign proteins and toxic chemicals which will take generations to recover from even if it all stopped right now. Nearby crops are being contaminated, organic farmers are loosing their profits and the soil is being depleted of nutrients which leads to erosion, drought and lower yield.

3. America is in a health epidemic. The World Health Organization just deemed glyphosate a probable carcinogen. ● Glyphosate residues are allowed by the EPA on 160 of our foods at levels far above have been shown to cause harm. ● 1 out of 2 males and 1 out of 3 females are expected to get cancer in America. ● 1 out of 2 children have a chronic illness such as autism, allergies, asthma, auto immune diseases, obesity, diabetes, digestive disorders or mental illness. ● By 2032 50% of our children born will be diagnosed with autism if we continue at the current rate. ● In 12 years our USA healthcare budget will be bankrupted by the cost of diabetes alone, if diagnosis continues at the current rate. ● 1 out of 5 Americans have mental illness.

Look around at your family and imagine how many would be impacted. Rampant sickness, struggle and increased early death, that is our new tragic reality. 4. All of these illnesses can be directly connected to the results of glyphosate and reactions in the body. How? ● Glyphosate is patented antibiotic which destroys the beneficial gut bacteria, where 70% of our immune system lies, and promotes the proliferation of pathogenic gut bacteria. That pathogenic gut bacteria signals the brain to go on attack, creating glutamate which is an excitotoxin.

Scientists have found that glyphosate also prevents calcium from exiting the brain cells which causes brain cell death or neurotoxicity, and can lead to mental illness, bi polar disorders and increasing acts of violence. ● Glyphosate is also a chelator, making vitamins and minerals unavailable to the body, weakening it’s immune system to protect the body from illness and cancer.

● Glyphosate has endocrine disrupting capabilities, even the EPA acknowledges it on it’s fact sheet as a “reproductive effector”. Studies show direct correlation between the 30% increase of miscarriages in a 3000 pig study in Denmark with levels of glyphosate on their grains much lower than what we eat in America, to our miscarriage/infertility and sterility rate is 30%, the highest in recorded history. ● Glyphosate has been shown to cause human placental cell death, break down the blood brain barrier, allowing toxins into the brain, and cause organ damage."

Is it true that there is a national bill that may forbid the labeling of GMOs? Zen: "If it passes, it will make GMO labeling VOLUNTARY. It will forbid mandatory labeling of GMOs. Companies like Non GMO Project Verified and food manufacturers may still be able to label for GMOs, it is still up for debate in the Senate. A new federal program under the USDA will label non GMO food if a company wishes, but it will not be manadatory, therefore there will be no way of knowing for sure. If we don’t speak up and stop this bill and the TTIP, our rights will be severely limited and I foresee not only the demise of the United States as a super power, but a massive resistance around the world."

How do you feel about the fact that in Switzerland not ‘even’ the animals for meat consumption are being fed GE feed? Zen: "I applaud your citizens for standing up for the freedom from pollution of GMO and toxic pesticides. In my opinion, you are an example of the TRUE leaders of the free world for stopping chemical corporations from controllling your food supply. It was so refreshing to see acres of non GMO corn, healthy, happy cows and slender, healthy people in Switzerland. I also loved it that when I was there, I could eat your delicious bread and cheese and not feel sick afterwards, like I do in the USA.

In fact, my host baked me a fresh loaf of Sunday Bread, which I brough home to my children. One of my sons held it up to his cheek and said “Mommy, this bread is like magic.” All of them could eat the bread, not get rashes and did not wet the bed, which is what always happens to at least one of my sons when they eat wheat bread in the USA. I am very happy for your citizens, but I am very sad and outraged for us. However, so many EU countries choosing to opt out of GMOs and so many EU citizens insisting on banning glyphosate is very encouraging and gives me hope that citizens everywhere will see your example, realize the dangers and also speak up."

What do you wish for the the people in the United States? Zen: "I wish for every person in the USA to realize that it does not have to be this way and to feel empowered to make changes. I wish Americans realized that it is not about our country being a “super power” but about the power we each have within us to take care of ourselves, naturally. We all have tremendous influence when we use our love, voice, and purchasing power. I wish for everyone to learn about GMOs, organic food, how to budget and make that switch. I wish for every America to learn how to care for our loved ones primarily with food and healthy choices. This is why our motto is “Empowered Moms, Healthy Kids.”"

What do you wish for the citizens of European countries? Zen: "I wish for you to keep GMOs and toxic chemcials like glyphosate OUT of your country and protect your current and future generations. I know many of you may think, this is not a problem, they are not in the food in Switzerland or EU, I do not have to worry about them. That is in itself the problem, Success is the greatest danger to success. When people are successful they get complacent. You may be successful in keeping GMO’s out of your food supply today but what about tomorrow or next week when Monsanto sends a car load of lobbyists to your government officials?

What about the GMO potato test plot growing in Switzerland? When a breeze contaminates the nearby fields, what then? What about your countries imported food safety standards, are they really testing for GMOs and pesticides like glyphosate? It takes just nano particles of glyphosate to cause sex hormones changes, liver and kidney damages, neurotoxicity and support the growth of breast cancer cells. New Zealand does not grow GMOs but they allow the import of GMOs and when I spoke there, I saw just as many sick children there as in the US. I urge you to remain vigilant and to protect your food supply, children and national food culture. Please ban GMOs, glyphosate and all endocrine disrupting chemicals immediately from your country."

What can each and every one of us do, right now? Zen: "You can write, call and visit with your leaders and let them know you will not grow, buy or eat GMOs. Stop the corporate control trade agreement called the TTIP. Let your leaders know about the health risks of GMOs and pesticides, as they have children and loved ones too. Direct them to the videos, articles, and data on our website at: www.momsacrossamerica.com . Let your friends and family know about GMOs and chemical farming and why your country needs to say no. It may seem like GMOs might equal “progress” but the newest studies and the testimonials of our mothers show that they really just mean more risk,environemental damage, toxic chemicals and harm to human health.

You country may be wealthy and may want to maintain a position of power, but this will not happen with GMOs. America is the proof. Something to consider to the leaders who are considering allowing GMOs into your country as an investment in you country’s future, as I said the the 1000 shareholders at the Monsanto shareholder meeting, “What if the same investment that you are making in GMOs to build a foundation of security for your children and grandchildren, is the very same investment that is destroying their future?” Your country cannot afford GMOs. Your children are priceless. Please protect them. In America wish we had known so we could have done better. Now you do, you can.

A final note: In Washington DC, in the Native American Museum of the United States, there is a headress of a Chief, with a plaque under it that says “To the this day the Native America Leaders are eleceted by the mothers of the tribe. The mothers also continue to hold the power to remove a leader based on lack of performance. “ Why is this? It is because the Native American community trusts that a mother’s commitment is in alignment with the communities’ best interest. What happened in the USA? We allow our leaders and agencies to fail in protecting us. Mothers everywhere need to remember and act on their power.

I call on the mothers and citizens of Europe to rise up, reclaim your power as our indigenous people had, and make our countries great again. It is up to us. These are our children, our food and our countries. The future belongs to US. We will not stop, we will not give up because the love for our children will never end. You can count on us for partnership to create a future of health and freedom. I hope we can count on you.

Water Pollution Trading Programs Under Fire as Report Finds Lax Oversight, "Shell Games" Put Waterways at Risk - Sharon Kelly • November 19, 2015

With little state oversight, private contractors have been permitted to run pollution trading markets that offer highly-regulated industrial polluters the chance to essentially swap places with farms, concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs) and feed lots whose runoff is not as tightly controlled under the Clean Water Act.

“...agriculture operations never have to monitor, sample, never have to verify that they actually generated the pollution that underlies these credits,”

... Run-off pollution, on the other hand, is exempt from those rules, and managing that pollution is left to the discretion of state governments.

...allow industrial polluters like power plants to buy credits for their point source pollution, in exchange for preventing pollution from run-off.

...with pollution trading, one of our most important tools in that struggle — the Clean Water Act — is being taken away.”

“We can no longer hold polluters accountable,” she said, “when they simply buy their way out of permit compliance.”

Costs, Water Pollution Remain at Closed Badger Army Ammunition Plant 11/22/15

Via Erin Brockovich - 11/23/15 - The United States Department of Defense had better stop lying and fess up. I absolutely loose my mind when they send in their lawyers wrapped in flags... pounding the table, "we had a war to win dammit, don't you understand"... Bullshit. Most of the DOD pollution occurred between WWII and Vietnam when serious military regulations were in force. Before WWII the Army warned base commanders of the dangers of releasing any chemicals into the groundwater aquifers... but they still did it.

Step up and stop with the dodging! It's almost 2016.

The Army is just now working on a plan to install a water system for about 400 households to replace tainted groundwater as the source of drinking water in this scenic region about 30 miles northwest of Madison, Wisconsin.

Pesticides Bound to Particles and Not Detectable in Water Harm Aquatic Organisms - (Beyond Pesticides, November 23, 2015)

Already, nearly 2,000 waterways are impaired by pesticide contamination and many more have simply not been tested. A U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) report from last year finds that levels of pesticides continue to be a concern for aquatic life in many of the nation’s rivers and streams in agricultural and urban areas. The study, which documents pesticide levels in U.S. waterways for two decades (1992-2011), finds pesticides and their breakdown products in U.S. streams more than 90 percent of the time. Known pesticide water contaminants, such as the herbicides atrazine, metolachlor, and simazine, continue to be detected in streams more than 50 percent of the time, with the insecticide fipronil being the pesticide most frequently found at levels of potential concern for aquatic organisms in urban streams. The report also found that for urban areas, 90 percent of the streams exceeded a chronic aquatic life benchmarks.

Aquatic organisms like algae and fish face numerous risks from pesticide exposures, even at low levels. In fact, USGS scientists identified pesticides as one of the contaminants the Potomac River linked to intersex-fish (male fish producing eggs) observed there. Atrazine, one of the most commonly used herbicides in the world, has been shown to affect reproduction of fish at concentrations below U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) water-quality guidelines. Concentrations of atrazine commonly found in agricultural streams and rivers have been associated with a reduction in reproduction and spawning, as well as tissue abnormalities.

Last year, EPA finalized a settlement to restore no-spray buffer zones around waterways to protect imperiled salmon and steelhead from five toxic pesticides. The settlement follows litigation filed by Earthjustice, representing the Pacific Coast Federation of Fishermen’s Associations, the Northwest Coalition for Alternatives to Pesticides, and Defenders of Wildlife, back in 2010 that called for EPA adoption of reasonable fish protections from the insecticides. More recently, EPA proposed to revoke all food tolerances for chlorpyrifos (also known as Dursban). If EPA’s rule is finalized, chlorpyrifos would be effectively eliminated from use in agriculture 15 years after residential uses were discontinued. However, other non-food uses, including golf courses, turf, green house and mosquito control are not affected by this decision and will remain.
