Etiquetas de OMG REALES propuestas al USDA

Esta es nuestra última oportunidad para el etiquetado de OMG.

¿Quiere que los OGM sean etiquetados con caras felices, soleadas y sonrientes?

Esto es lo que propone el USDA, sin duda debido a la presión de las grandes empresas de OMG.

¿Te recuerdan a algo? ¿Quizás los símbolos orgánicos? Si alguna vez ha viajado a Europa, verá estos logotipos a continuación en casi todas las tiendas: "BIO" en Europa significa Orgánico. Y, sin embargo, la industria de los OGM quiere etiquetar los OGM con BE que significa "Alimentos de ingeniería biológica". ¡La industria de los OGM está tratando de cooptar a la industria orgánica!

GMO Industry Tries to Co-Opt Organic Industry

Have you heard about the proposed GMO labeling symbols?

Screen_Shot_2018- 05-07 _at_11. 51.55 _AM.png

It's bad enough that food companies using GMO ingredients won't have to have the words "Produced with Genetic Engineering"- now GMO companies are influencing the USDA to allow a symbol that co-opts the Bio-Dynamic and Organic industry by using "BE" for Bio-Engineering instead of GE for genetic engineering. Absolutely unacceptable!

By guest blogger Evaggelos Vallianatos, author of several books, including Poison Spring

Pesticides cause a multitude of adverse effects on humans. However, they are especially harmful to children. They may have something to do with the mass-shootings in schools all over America because some of them are neurotoxins. This means they affect and damage the central nervous system and the brain of all animals, including humans.

Pesticide Map Shows How Much Poison is Sprayed in CA Towns

Screen_Shot_2018- 04-13 _at_7. 45.49 _AM.png Screen_Shot_2018- 04-13 _at_7. 47.12 _AM.png

Have you ever seen workers on the side of the road with a metal sprayer, dousing the landscaping with some unknown liquid? Or a truck with a tank of liquid driving slowly along the sidewalk spraying a jet stream of liquid all over the roadside or sidewalk? Or how about a farmer in a field on a tractor spraying the crops? Ever wonder what they are spraying?

It's not water. And it's not harmless. They are most likely spraying a glyphosate-based herbicide, such as Roundup or Rodeo.  You may even have a bottle of these herbicides in your garage to spray in your own backyard. Glyphosate-based herbicides are the most popular, and insidiously harmful, herbicides and desiccants (drying agents) in the world.  Over 9.4 million tons of these herbicides are recorded to have been sprayed globally.  80% of GMOs---genetically modified crops---are engineered to withstand glyphosate-based herbicides.

Screen_Shot_2018- 04-13 _at_7. 48.58 _AM.pngCalifornia is the only state that has a Department of Pesticide* Regulation that tracks the use of glyphosate and other pesticides/herbicides. That map was recently shared with me by a supporter for glyphosate-free grape growing. Click here for one of the most disturbing maps you will ever see, especially if you live in California. The California wine regions are recorded to have between 79,000-189,000 pounds of glyphosate sprayed in their communities every year.

*The term pesticide is accepted by the industry to include pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, and rodenticides.

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.

Screen_Shot_2018-02-27_at_7.07.21_PM.pngPlease click on this link, click Comment Now on the upper right, and write a short (or long) comment to the EPA.

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 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?

Monsanto’s Roundup. Screen_Shot_2018-02-27_at_7.07.21_PM.png


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.
