Letters to the Editors About Glyphosate Herbicides

Dear Editor,

I am a mother concerned about health issues and I am writing to ask you to report on one of the most pressing issues of our community. Exposure to a very insidious herbicide called glyphosate herbicides, also known as Roundup and 700 + other brand names. You may have heard about it in the news recently - a historic verdict was announced a few weeks ago - 2 plaintiffs won $2 billion dollars when they sued the manufacturer of Roundup, a glyphosate-based herbicide, for not properly labeling their product a carcinogen. The jury found the company guilty on all counts, including "malice and oppression" which means that the executives at Monsanto knew that the product could cause cancer and hid this information from the public.

Glyphosate herbicides are not just responsible for cancer. They have been proven to be neurotoxic, hormone disrupting, cause birth defects, miscarriages, and liver and kidney disease at very low levels of exposure. Monsanto and many chemical companies, retailers, landscapers, and food manufacturers have been hiding this information from the public for years.

Is Talcum Powder Hiding Asbestos?

In March of this year a California jury ordered Johnson & Johnson to pay $24.4 million to a dying woman who says she developed mesothelioma after being exposed to asbestos in the company’s talcum powder. The jury awarded an additional $5 million to her spouse.

Baby powder’s leading manufacturer, Johnson & Johnson, is facing quite a few high-profile court cases surrounding the link between their talc-based products and cancer. The company is under fire after thousands of loyal customers came forward with both ovarian cancer and mesothelioma, suggested to be a direct result of long-term use.

This is UNACCCEPTABLE! 

You can do something about this TODAY. In just a few minutes you can save lives.

 

I just posted on Nextdoor, a very useful app that connects neighbors to neighbors.

Moms Across America Asks Impossible Foods and Funder Temasek to Drop GMOs

 

Recently, Moms Across America learned that Impossible Foods is using GMO soy in their Impossible Burger and are getting their burger into hundreds of restaurant chains like Burger King without labeling or a warning to consumers. Celebs such as Katy Perry, Serena Williams, Jay-Z and Trevor Noah funded the vegan burger. Then consumers began posting that they were having allergic reactions, and yet no recall was conducted, and no warnings were issued. As a mother of a child who has nearly died before my eyes from food I gave him, and also saw him get better when we avoided GMOs and glyphosate, I did what any mother in my position would do: I initiated Moms Across America to commission the testing of the GMO Impossible Burger for glyphosate, a chemical found in Roundup. Glyphosate has been scientifically proven to cause liver disease (which weakens the immune system), destroy gut bacteria (which can lead to inflammation and allergies), and contribute to hormone disruption, birth defects, miscarriages, and cancer.

The test results were disturbing. The levels of glyphosate in the Impossible Burger, although below the levels irresponsibly considered “safe” by the EPA and others misled to believe in the EPA’s science, have been proven to cause harm in a myriad of ways. We understand the argument some are using: compared to other foods, with thousands of parts per billion of glyphosate, the Impossible Burger levels are not as high and therefore not as worrisome. We assert that the Impossible Foods company has an opportunity to change the levels of glyphosate in their foods and that every part per billion of glyphosate is harmful to human and animal life and should be avoided to reduce the total body burden of toxins.

The First Parade

It was a clear, sunny day in Connecticut. It was hot but not scorching and there was a slight breeze now and then—just enough to bring a sigh of relief. We gathered in the Stop & Shop parking lot in the charming and affluent town of Madison. Groups of cheerleaders, firefighters, men driving tiny cars, floats, and trucks gathered in colorful groups around us. I was beaming with excitement and felt more alive than I had felt in months. Leafy, green trees lined the streets, which were packed with parade spectators in their beach chairs.

My family was with me, all decked out in their GMO? We’re NOT Buying It! and LABEL GMOs NOW! Because We Said So! T-shirts, holding signs we had made.

wave.jpgNow is the time! Do you feel the wave? People all across the country are showing up at Senate hearings. SHOUT OUT TO CT, NY, NJ, OR, WA, CA, TX and AZ especially right now! People are sharing, speaking up, and shifting the thinking around vaccines, toxins, and medical freedom. This is important to us. So important that we will risk the trolls and negative press. So what. Being silent simply is not a consideration when it comes to the health and well being of our families!

Today I am thrilled to share several ways you can show light on the truth- please share these wonderful videos, movies and even a Deck of Cards to raise awareness about health, our food supply, and the impact of the current vaccine schedule and ingredients in vaccines.

Bayer's $2 Billion Dollar Headache Affects Us All

 

You must have heard about the $2 billion dollar win for our cause via the Pilliod v Monsanto trial by now. It's everywhere. It's glorious. We celebrate this tremendous win! And we wish to remind the public of what is really going on here. Some things are simply not being mentioned in the media.

Moms Across America asked nicely. We went to the Monsanto (now owned by Bayer) shareholders' meeting and asked 1,000 shareholders and the entire board of directors to "change direction, away from this toxic treadmill of chemical cocktails." I asked for them to consider the job security of their employees, pointing out that a business plan which includes poison is not a viable long-term plan, and that many could lose their jobs. Other moms like Anne Temple also asked them to "mitigate the inevitable litigation," to protect their own shareholder value, and to stop selling Roundup and glyphosate herbicides now.

 

They ignored us.

 

They belittled us.

 

And they funded movies and shills to discredit us.

 

Even though we were "just moms," the attacks were vicious.

Este nuevo producto se comercializa como una solución para una alimentación "saludable", cuando en realidad 11 ppb de consumo de herbicida glifosato puede ser muy peligroso.

El poder de mamá

El poder de mamá

¡Feliz Día de la Madre a todos! Para ti y los tuyos! Antes de enfrentarnos a un verano largo, lleno de diversión, con niños fuera de la escuela y días de vacaciones, quería tomarme un momento para recordarnos todo el poder de la madre. No solo agradecerle, sino reconocer todo lo que hace no solo por la familia, sino por la comunidad y el mundo. Cómo encarna tanto la fuerza como la gentileza para formar las generaciones futuras. Cómo las madres en todas partes están creando el futuro del mundo, un niño a la vez.

Era el primer día de vida de mi hijo Ben en nuestra casa y lo sostuve en mis brazos. Era pequeño, rosado y delicado, envuelto en una manta y aún sin pesar casi nada. Sin embargo, de repente estaba todo a mi. Mientras miraba asombrado su rostro dormido, le dije a mi madre: "¿No es increíble? No son todos ¿bebés increíbles?

Me tocó el hombro, me miró con una sonrisa en los ojos y dijo: "Todos todavía son . "

Guau.
