Disturbing Toxin Test Results in American Children and Food Samples By Zen Honeycutt, Moms Across America - 5/5/17
Moms Across America sponsored a survey testing 36 American children for glyphosate, 2,4-D and 166 other toxins, including pesticides, herbicides and industrial pollutants. The lab used was Great Plains Lab of Lenexa, Kansas. The randomly selected children, ages 2-17 years old, consisted of a mixture of demographics from across the United States...
The results are disturbing. 100% of the children tested positive for serious toxins…
American children are being inundated by toxins, primarily through their food and water. These toxins are known to cause serious health issues. The Environmental Protection Agency allows these toxins to be present in our food, water, air, and medical treatments including vaccines.
"This study confirmed that genetically engineered microalgae grown in open ponds will escape and spread into the environment. Once this genie is out of the bottle, there is no way to put it back," said Dana Perls, senior campaigner with Friends of the Earth.
"Not only is it impossible to contain GE algae in open air production, but there are currently no adequate regulations which fully address its risks to our environment, from lab to final product. Without this essential oversight, there should be no environmental release or commercial uses of GE algae and other synthetic biology organisms."
The vital missing piece of the vaccinate vs. unvaccinated study
MAYBE- the ingredients haven't changed over the past thirty years, but they weren't always genetically modified. Bovine growth hormones (rBGH) were approved in 1993. Widespread use of Roundup began in the late 1990's.
"These bills have been handcrafted by big business to weaken—among other policies—state and local environmental laws that states have fought for and enacted over decades," Sarah Lakeman of the Natural Resources Council of Maine said.
The latest issue of The New Yorker features an exhaustive and harrowing read on labor conditions at chicken factory farms. This is why, since our inception, we have encouraged that potential sponsors be screened not only for the products they offer, but also for their labor and environmental practices. This also highlights the importance of transparency in the food chain (which "ag-gag" laws -- funded by industry -- are intent on battling) as well as the courageousness of whistleblowers.
EXPLOITATION AND ABUSE AT THE CHICKEN PLANT - Case Farms built its business by recruiting immigrant workers from Guatemala, who endure conditions few Americans would put up with.
Case Farms plants are among the most dangerous workplaces in America. In 2015 alone, federal workplace-safety inspectors fined the company nearly two million dollars, and in the past seven years it has been cited for two hundred and forty violations. That’s more than any other company in the poultry industry except Tyson Foods, which has more than thirty times as many employees.
