Letter sent to Dr.Landa regarding the HR 4432 Hearing:
To Dr. Landa,
Moms Across America, a national coalition of Unstoppable Moms, with over 310 leaders in 44 states, were shocked by your statements at the HR4432 Dark Act Hearing. We ask you to clarify and retract your statements regarding there being no material diifference and no evidence of harm from GMOs.
We are positive, as an intelligent and informed man, with a team of scientists, that you have been privy to the many scientific studies which document harm from GMOs and related chemicals.
What the Energy and Commerce committee, you and the EWG representative failed to address was the fact that GMOs, albeit a foreign protein with plenty of studies showing harm alone, are inantely tied to Roundup ( glyphsoate) and discussion of GMOs cannot be intelligently had without including Glyphosate and Roundup. There are over 1700 studies and reports on GMOFREEUSA.com of harm from GMOs and glyphosate. We have attached several to this email.
Your statement in the HR 4432 was false, we are sure, as a protector of the American people, someone who works with the EPA, (whom we gave at least 30 studies showing harm from glyphosate) You must know that a there have been studies from Russia and France on rats, out for years, showing significant harm to rats consuming GMO feed. You cannot claim you do not know unless you are willfully not doing your job and not reading the scientific studies that exist regarding the most widely used herbicide in the world of which 80% of GMOs are genertically engineered to withstand.
So you are either not doing your job or you are lying.
Either way we request you retract your statement and find the courage to do your job and protect the American people. Our children need leaders of integrity.
1 out of 2 of our children have a chronic illness in America. We have a health crisis on our hands that will bankrupt America in 13 years if it continues. However, we moms see our children GET BETTER when they avoid GMOs and related pesticides and eat organic. We see autism allergies, asthma, auto immune, fibromyalgia, colitis and more, vastly improve or dissapear altogether when they do not eat GMOs and related pesticides. Pesticides/Herbicides have increased up to 26%per year since the use of GMOs. They deliver toxic chemicals to humas via food. Glyphosate is an antibiotic and destroys the gut bacteria, where 70% of our immune system lies, hence the skyrocketing illnesses.
You must admit that there are health concerns related to GMOs and related pesticides. You must take the precautionary principle and protect our children. Autism has been linked to glyphosate for two reason, glyphosate destroys gut bacteria and there is a gut brain connection, and glyphosate breask down the blood brain barrier, allowing toxins from the environment and vaccines into the brain. It is a mathematical fact that in 20 years from now 1 out of 2 children will have autism if we continue at the current rate of diagnosis. Is this the legacy you want to leave?
Or will you say, I stood up to the oligarcy. I stood up and made a difference for the future of America? Will you Be The One to protect the future of America?
We understand you will not say that GMOs cause harm, because then you could not legally allow them in food whatsoever and suddenly 80-90% of our food crops would be barred from our food system and our economy would collapse. So don't do that... yet...just change your determination that there is a material difference between GMOs and conventional food and require them to be labeled. Close that loop hole. When GMO food is labeled the food manufacturers will switch over to non GMO. It will take time, but our economy will shift and not collapse.
And while you are at it, do not allow Roundup and toxic chemicals to be present in our food, especially baby formula. If anyone has to wear a Hazmat suit or cannot touch our food for days after spraying with chemicals that are recognized endoccrine disruptors, that food is not fit to eat. These chemicals do not dry off, they do not wash off, they do not cook off. We eat them and they are showing up in our tap water, urine and breastmilk.
This practice is not conducive to a strong future for America. It is your duty to protect our future above anything else. Please do so now.
