To the EPA: Revoke the License of Glyphosate

Right now, the EPA is accepting comments from the public on the issue of whether or not to re-register glyphosate for another 15 years. This is one of the most hotly contested issues of our generation, and we need EVERYONE to comment.

Registration Review: Draft Human Health and/or Ecological Risk Assessments for Several Pesticides

We simply ask that you be professional, add links to studies to back up your assertions (see resources below), and share personal reasons why as well.

If you suspect harm to your family or loved ones from glyphosate herbicide Roundup, now is the time to tell them.


You may use parts of our comments below, but please do personalize your comment or else it will be deleted.

Feel free to comment more than once. The last time I checked the majority of the comments were in favor of glyphosate being renewed...no doubt the chemical companies are paying people to leave comments. Regardless, we need to bring clear independent science and honest pleas.

Please know that there are some inside the EPA that want to do the right thing, and have asked us to communicate with them. They need our support to make changes. Please leave a comment today.

Thank you for your partnership in creating health and freedom!

Arsenic in Wine? Michelob Moves to Organic? Why the Alcohol Industry Is Making Changes

New Test Results Show What Popular Beer and Wine Brands Have in Common:

Monsanto’s Roundup



Screen_Shot_2018- 03-14 _at_2. 54.47 _PM.pngmarzo 15, 2018 , Mission Viejo Ca- It has been a rough few years for the alcohol industry, but change is a-brewing. In 2015, Los Angeles CBS news broke the announcement of a lawsuit against 31 brands of wines for high levels of inorganic arsenic. In 2016, 12 California wines tested were all found to be positive for glyphosate herbicide.  In 2016, beer testing in Germany also revealed residues of glyphosate in every single sample tested, even independent beers. Vinters and brewers alike began noticing the growing demand for organic. Just this week, Anheuser-Busch announced that their brand Michelob has launched a new beer Ultra Pure Gold made with organic wheat. What do these events all have in common?

How are they connected? If you remember, French scientist Seralini et al released shocking findings in January of 2018 that all the brands of the glyphosate-based Roundup they tested, over a dozen, had high levels of arsenic, over 5x the allowable limit. Roundup used in vineyards and sprayed on grains used in beer as a drying agent is appearing to be one of the major contributing factors of arsenic (and of course, glyphosate) residues in our wine and beer.

Today Moms Across America is releasing new findings of glyphosate in all of the most popular brands of wines in the world, most of which are from the US, and in batch test results in American beer. The findings were at first, confusing. But one thing that was clear was that the beer and wine industries must and in many cases are, moving away from Monsanto’s Roundup in order to avoid contamination by this chemical herbicide, a known neurotoxin, carcinogen, and endocrine disruptor, which causes liver disease. Despite Monsanto’s impassioned appeal of “irreparable harm”, CA federal Judge Shubb allowed glyphosate to remain on the CA Prop 65 carcinogen list in a ruling out just two weeks ago.

Judge Says Public Doesn’t Need Cancer Warning Label

mask_suit_spraying.jpgCA Judge OKs Glyphosate Prop 65 Listing But Decides Public Doesn’t Need Cancer Warning Label on our Food and Products

febrero 27, 2018-- Today a CA Federal Judge ruled that the public does not need a warning label to inform us that cancer-causing and harmful chemicals in glyphosate herbicides are in our food or products, temporarily relieving manufacturers from the responsibility of being honest with their customers.  At a time when more and more American families are struggling with diseases and their high cost, one man decided that it was an injustice to the chemical companies to have to tell us about the presence of their chemicals.

Senior United States District Judge William B. Shubb released his ruling regarding the case of Wheat Growers and Monsanto against the California Environmental Protection Agency (CA EPA), Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) and the CA Attorney General to remove glyphosate, the declared active chemical ingredient in Roundup, the most widely used herbicide in the world, from the CA Prop 65 carcinogen list, a law approved by California voters by ballot initiative in 1986.

Screen_Shot_2018-02-27_at_7.07.21_PM.pngThe Judge ruled that OEHHA can keep glyphosate on the Prop 65 carcinogen list but the manufacturers such as Monsanto and food producers will not have to label their products with a warning label. Normally, the law states that products containing chemicals on the list, above a certain level, must label their products within a year from the listing. The label would state, “WARNING this product contains a chemical known to the state of California to cause cancer or reproductive harm.” The temporary preliminary injunction granted by the judge halts the impending labeling by manufacturers of products and foods containing glyphosate and allows them to not inform their customers of this fact... that glyphosate has been found to cause cancer in animals and to be a probable human carcinogen.

Got Monsanto's Glyphosate in Your Lunch?

Captura de pantalla_2018- 02-15 _at_8. 47.33 _AM.png

 New test results show the presence of Glyphosate, a proven neurotoxin and the declared active chemical in Monsanto’s Roundup, to be contaminating more and more American foods, many considered fit for a “healthy” lunch. Instead, we are finding that these foods are likely contributing to poor mental and physical health.

Batch testing of popular almond milk (1), vegetarian burgers (2), and various breads (3), including organic, gluten free and whole wheat breads, revealed up to 140.98 ppb. Individual brand testing of Skippy’s “100% Natural” peanut butter and Lipton’s “100% Natural” Mint and Green tea up to 208.29 ppb of glyphosate herbicides.

Pesticides Proven to Change the Taste of Wines

New Discoveries
Press Release



The discoveries by J Douzelet & GE Séralini:

A very first description of the tastes of 11 pesticides is proposed. They are detected first in water, diluted freshly at the levels found in wines, by 36 professionals from wine or cooking in 195 blind tests at different periods.

They are the most frequently found pesticides in wines in our experiment. Some animals can detect pesticides and change their behavior in response. In order to find out if humans can also detect pesticides by their taste in wines, a three-step experiment was conducted.

Moms Take on Monsanto

Monsanto.jpgenero 31, 2018 Zen Honeycutt and Anne Temple of Moms Across America attended the Monsanto Shareholder meeting held at their corporate headquarters in St. Louis.

Zen represented John Harrington of Harrington Investments and presented a three minute presentation for the forming of  a Human Rights Committee.  Unfortunately the vote was taken before Zen spoke on behalf of the proxy.  A document was presented to the board and Executive Team listing just some of the examples of 11 categories of crimes against humanity attributed to Monsanto's products.  You can read that document here.

Below is Zen's presentation for the forming of a Human Rights Committee.

Human Rights Violations Document Submitted to Monsanto





Captura de pantalla_2018- 01-31 _at_8. 58.42 _AM.png

Data compiled by members of The Monsanto Tribunal Team, Navdanya, Moms Across America and concerned citizens of the USA.



We submit that Monsanto, first and foremost a chemical company, is mistaken in thinking it is its job to “Feed the World”. Monsanto’s job is to make sure the chemicals they sell are safe and effective. Or, to redirect it’s resources to business which does not include using toxic chemicals which can harm humans, wildlife, livestock, soil and the water supply. Monsanto has a responsibility to maintain its commitment to product safety and integrity by forming a committee to investigate if human rights violations have occurred due to their products and business practices.

Millions of people worldwide are working to reclaim their basic right of seed freedom, to protect human health and rights, and to promote poison-free organic farming and agroecology. We call upon Monsanto Company to ensure that their globally acknowledged human rights violations cease and desist.

Amicus Brief Filed in Support of OEHHA and Prop 65 listing of Glyphosate

prop-65-img.jpgenero 26, 2018- Moms Across America and National Health Federation, with  Tips & Associates, filed an Amicus Brief, which is a friendly filing in support for California State Office of Environmental Health Hazards Assessment agency (OEHHA) & their Prop 65 State Toxics List AND the addition of glyphosate to the List, after Monsanto and 11 State Attorneys General  moved to get rid of Prop 65 and the Listing ENTIRELY.

What is an amicus brief?

Amicus briefs are legal documents filed in appellate court cases by non-litigants with a strong interest in the subject matter. The briefs advise the court of relevant, additional information or arguments that the court might wish to consider.

Why would an amicus brief be filed?

Monsanto has repeatedly sued the CA EPA's OEHHA, to remove glyphosate from the Prop 65 carcinogen list. This time they "won the support of 11 states to sue OEHHA." This was coincidentally after Moms Across America initiated a "50 States Ask Governors to Ban Glyphosate" campaign.

Screen_Shot_2017-11-05_at_10.04.16_AM.pngThe 11 states who join Monsanto in this audacious lawsuit against OEHHA, our state's health hazard assessment agency,  are supporting the federal lawsuit, Monsanto, the National Association of Wheat Growers and other agricultural groups which was filed in noviembre 2017, to stop California from becoming the first US State to require product containing glyphosate carry warning labels.


OEHHA legally and rightfully placed glyphosate on the list after the International Agency Research for Cancer (IARC) classified glyphosate a probable carcinogen in May of 2015. Glyphosate is the declared active chemical ingredient in Roundup and over 700 other glyphosate-based herbicides, the most widely used type of herbicide in the world.

Why would Monsanto want glyphosate off the Prop 65 list?

The Plot to Take Down IARC and Continue Poisoning Us Must Be Stopped

Screen_Shot_2018-01-26_at_12.53.08_PM.pngDid you know that ... despite the fact that 1 out of 2 males and 1 out of 3 females in America are expected to get cancer, a group of U.S. Congressmembers serving on the House of Representatives Committee on Science, Space, and Technology, have threatened to defund and dismantle the  World Health Organization's Independent Science Body, the International Agency for Research of Cancer (IARC)


U.S. defunding might have the impact of dismantling this entire body which serves the whole world on cancer issues, as part of the World Health Organization.
