Moms Across America tests for Glyphosate in Childhood Vaccines
Moms Across America’s Zen Honeycutt sent vaccines to an independent lab earlier this year for testing because “vaccines contain many ingredients which could be genetically modified. 80% of GMOs are genetically engineered to withstand glyphosate based herbicides and glyphosate is allowed on 160 non organic food and feed crops by the EPA. We wondered if glyphosate could be contaminating not only our water, urine, breast milk, food, soil, beer and wine, but our vaccines as well.”
Moms Across America has sent a letter on September 1, 2016 to the FDA, CDC, EPA, NIH, California Department of Health, and Senator Boxer requesting that they make it a priority to test vaccines for glyphosate, recall contaminated vaccines and for the EPA to revoke the license of glyphosate to prevent further contamination. “And in the meantime we call upon our lawmakers to rescind the mandate which forces parents to vaccinate their child in order to attend school, in light of extraordinary new evidence.”
Honeycutt states, “We were shocked to find the presence of glyphosate in all five of the vaccines and to find that the contamination of glyphosate has extended into our medical treatments. The fact is that the CDC, vaccine makers and our regulatory agencies should have been testing for herbicide/pesticide contamination 40 years ago before they started spraying these chemicals on our food and feed crops. If anyone questions these results we ask them to test.”
The tests were conducted with the Elisa method, (link to full report here) which is regarded by the scientific community as a screening method only and not as accurate as HPLC mass spectrometry. Honeycutt reports that they asked numerous labs to test additional vaccines for glyphosate over the past few months and they have been unable to test. After learning of MAA’s results, an independent scientist (Anthony Samsel) conducted numerous rounds of testing, and has confirmed the presence of glyphosate in vaccines. He sent his data to Senator Sheehan, the FDA, NIH, elected government officials, major media, last week and received no response. One can contact Senator Sheehan for the additional test results.
MIT scientist Dr.Stephanie Seneff on the presence of glyphosate in vaccines. “Collagen is a protein found in large amounts in the ligaments of cows, and these ligaments are often used in the production of gelatin. The MMR vaccine and flu vaccine viruses are grown as live cultures on gelatin sourced from cows fed high concentrations of glyphosate in their GMO RoundupReady feed. Collagen antibodies are linked to multiple diseases such as vasculitis and lupus, as shown in the abstract below. This could plausibly be due to glyphosate contamination in the protein which prevents it from folding properly and prevents it from being broken down, causing an allergic immune reaction.(3) Further testing on glyphosate in collagen would be very beneficial.
Glyphosate could also be present in the sucrose (sugar) in many vaccines, including the flu vaccine and MMR. Sucrose could be sourced from GMO sugar beets or from cane sugar sprayed with glyphosate right before harvest. Soy is also present in some vaccines, such as pneumococcal and HepB. This is most likely GMO RoundupReady soy, another clear source of glyphosate. Another possibility is casein. Casein is found in milk which is ​found in DtAP, meningococcal and Tdap vaccines. Casein is a protein with glycine residues that could be substituted by glyphosate by mistake during protein synthesis.”
50 year plant pathologist and soil microbiologist Dr. Don M. Huber Professor Emeritus, Purdue University comments: "This report shows that vaccines may contain glyphosate and they may contain genetically modified components as well, two products which totally counteract the immune system.
The quantity of material that vaccine producers require for production of a vaccine is relatively small. There is little reason for vaccine producers to not use the highest quality ingredients to ensure purity because of the highly invasive nature of the process."
From Farmer Educator, Howard Vlieger: “It is regrettable that farmers have been severely misled to believe that glyphosate based herbicides are harmless. The truth about glyphosate herbicides has NEVER been told to farmers on the radio or in farm publications. Because of this and the weed resistance to glyphosate the rates of glyphosate that are applied per acre are obscenely high. Glyphosate has become ubiquitous in our environment and is destined to follow the same path as DDT. I believe history will show that glyphosate will meet the same fate as DDT and it cannot happen soon enough.”
Dr. Toni Bark MD MHEM LEED AP states, “ I am deeply concerned about injecting glyphosate, a known pesticide, directly into children. Neither roundup nor glyphosate has been tested for safety as an injectable. Injection is a very different route of entry than oral route. Injected toxins, even in minute doses can have profound effects on the organs and the different systems of the body. In addition, injecting a chemical along with an adjuvant or live virus, can induce severe allergic reactions to that substance as vaccines induce the immune system to create antibodies to whatever is included in the vaccine. Since glyphosate is heavily used in corn, soy, wheat, cotton, and other commodities, we can expect to see more severe food allergies in the vaccine recipients. In addition, chemicals in ultra low doses, can have powerful effects on physiology behaving almost as hormones, stimulating or suppressing physiological receptors. “
As an action, you can comment on the EPA's site, (we've included directions in the link below), and ask to have the license of glyphosate REVOKED. Also, mark your calendars for an October 3rd Child Health Day action we have planned.
EPA -- Notice of Public Hearing
There will be a 4–day meeting starting October 18th, of the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act Scientific Advisory Panel (FIFRA SAP) to consider and review a set of scientific issues being evaluated by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regarding EPA’s evaluation of the carcinogenic potential of glyphosate, a non-selective, phosphonomethyl amino acid herbicide registered to control weeds in various agricultural and non-agricultural settings.
They will be taking comments on or before October 4, 2016. When submitting comments, please reference docket identification (ID) number EPA-HQ-OPP-2016-0385 via one of the following methods:
I am planning our meetings with reps and need as many letters as possible from parents, people affected by vaccine injury, medical professionals, scientists and legislators that are against mandates. Please share this info! You do not have to be from ny to write a letter! This is everyone's chance to have a voice on their concerns. We are Facebook.com/groups/nyparentsforinformedconsent/

“Glyphosate could easily be present in vaccines due to the fact that certain vaccine viruses including measles in MMR and flu are grown on gelatin derived from the ligaments of pigs fed heavy doses of glyphosate in their GMO feed. Gelatin comes from collagen which has lots of glycine. Livestock feed is allowed to have up to 400 PPM [parts per million] of glyphosate residues by the EPA, thousands of times higher than has been shown to cause harm in numerous studies.”
South Portland, Maine Passes Lawn Pesticide Ban, Focuses on Education
(Beyond Pesticides, September 9, 2016) On Wednesday, City Council members of South Portland, Maine cast their final votes to pass an ordinance that bans the use of toxic lawn pesticides on private and public land. The ban, which passed 6-1, is an important public health measure in the protecting 25,000 residents, the largest jurisdiction in the state to-date to adopt such as measure. In 2014, the Town of Ogunquit, Maine was the first jurisdiction to ban toxic lawn pesticides on both private and public land.
Seneff: “Evidence from emails that Monsanto played a direct role in the retraction of the seminal long-term rat study paper by Seralini et al.”
Damning Emails Against Monsanto-Bayer
The email exchanges confirm charges this writer made at the time that Monsanto and other GMO industry companies acted to destroy the scientific evidence by destroying the scientific reputation of Seralini and associates. Now the sordid corruption attempt has backfired on Monsanto.
Monsanto ‘edits’ Food and Chemical Toxicology…
...Goodman wrote his Monsanto contact that he “would appreciate” it if Monsanto could provide him with criticisms against the Seralini piece. Monsanto replied to Goodman, “We’re reviewing the paper. I will send you the arguments that we have developed.” A few days later, Goodman was named “associate editor” responsible for biotechnology, i.e. GMO, a specially-created post at Food and Chemical Toxicology journal, by Wallace Hayes, then editor.
With Goodman on board at the journal, Hayes initiated an unprecedented step of a second round of “peer” review, the first review being the one that led to the study being published. In a manner more suitable to the 15th Century Spanish Tribunal del Santo Oficio de la Inquisición, the reviewers were kept anonymous so that presence of Monsanto or GMO-industry-linked scientists, as editor Hayes had requested of Monsanto, would be impossible to confirm. The anonymous “peers” concluded that the Seralini paper, which had already passed peer-review and had been published for a year, and had nothing demonstrated to be wrong with it beyond the fact that, in common with countless other scientific papers, it was “inconclusive” on some endpoints, was unsuitable for publication and was immediately removed, over vehement protest from scientists from around the world.
Latin American scientists reject Nobel laureates’ letter supporting GM crops
“We question the promises made by GMOs proponents that these crops would have higher yields. Each of the countries in the Southern Cone where GM soybean is grown has different performance. The highest yields are registered in Brazil and Argentina, where the national agricultural research centres have dedicated many years to conventional breeding of this crop. On the other hand, in Ecuador—, a GM free country, —soybean yields are higher than in Bolivia and Paraguay.
We're broadcasting live from The Hague, Netherlands, where we are organizing the International Monsanto Tribunal, a citizens' tribunal that will take place here on October 15-16. We're here with Marie-Monique Robin, author and producer of "The World According to Monsanto," talking about why the tribunal is so important and why we need citizens from all over the world to endorse the tribunal.

The Secret Global Court: Why Corporate Criminals & Corrupt Politicians Desperately Want TPP
The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) ins’t really a free trade deal, it’s a way for global oligarchs to consolidate, grow and protect their enormous wealth. The investor-state dispute settlement system (ISDS) is perhaps the most nefarious and objectionable aspect of the deal, with this shadowy court system being used to accomplish the following for the super rich and powerful:
Prenatal exposure to organochlorine chemicals linked to increased odds of autism in children. Hear what Dr. Stephanie Seneff says about the link between pesticides, glyphosate, autism.
Dr. Stephanie Seneff took some time to kick back with Smart Health Talk Host Elaine McFadden, MPH, RD at the "Environmental Health Symposium" in San Diego CA to discuss how chemicals and poisons used in farming and food production can impact our health. Because of the "EXTRA" INGREDIENTS USED IN ROUNDUP that includes hundreds of ingredients that can be more toxic than active ingredient Roundup with in itself is toxic in it's own special way including it's ability to accumulate in human tissues so it can poison us even more from one day to the next. Dr. Seneff is very concerned about young people wanting a family that are facing autism rates as high as 80% risk of having a child with autism. These risks are all too real including high risks for kidney, thyroid, and liver disease
Holding Monsanto Accountable for Growing Public Outcry Over the Dangers of Glyphosate
After numerous shareholder proposals and decades of applying pressure, John Harrington, president of HII, has been unrelenting in his pursuit to hold Monsanto accountable. "They have a long history of egregious behavior," Harrington proclaimed. "They operate with no regard for the potential harm that may result from their actions—profit is their sole objective. Monsanto is the quintessential example of a corporation that exists exclusively to maximize materialistic self-interest, regardless of the consequences to society."
