Se ha demostrado que los granos son especialmente altos en niveles de glifosato y el impacto perjudica a nuestros más vulnerables.

Mamás en toda América announces that the baby food samples tested were positive for residues of glyphosate when the baby foods contained grains such as rice, wheat, or oats. Baby foods that contained only fruits and vegetables did not. Eight different conventional baby foods from two top brands, Gerber and Comfort for Baby, were tested by Health Research Institute labs in Iowa, with the “gold standard” HPLC MS/MS methodology. The levels found in the foods with grain as part of the ingredients averaged 14.3 parts per billion, which is 143 times higher than the amount that is allowed in EU drinking water. At-home testing on Gerber Oatmeal and Apple Toddler Cereal revealed that glyphosate levels between 50-200 ppb. Oats are commonly sprayed with glyphosate as a drying agent so most conventional oat products are expected to have similar levels of glyphosate.

Glyphosate is the declared active chemical ingredient in Roundup, manufactured by Monsanto/Bayer. Recent John v Monsanto jury trial found Monsanto guilty on all accounts, including for “malice and oppression”- meaning that the company knew their products could cause cancer and suppressed the information.

Glyphosate, found in Roundup, is a patented antibiotic. It is unacceptable for any amount to be in baby food. A baby’s microbiome is developing in the first few years of life, setting the foundation of the immune system for life to come. Glyphosate can bioaccumulate and has also been shown to be neurotoxic and to increase the development of cancer. It is crucial that parents protect their babies and reduce exposure to glyphosate and all toxic chemicals as much as possible. Moms Across America hopes baby food manufacturers will take note of these findings and be fastidious in their sourcing of grains that have not been sprayed with glyphosate for any reason.

Alternatively, organic baby food and a biodynamic brand tested by other organizations did not have quantifiable or detected levels for glyphosate.

Nuestra comida para bebés vino como ND (No detectado), lo que significa que estaba por debajo del límite de detección, lo cual es un resultado directo de las prácticas agrícolas biodinámicas detrás de todos nuestros productos. La biodinámica es el estándar de oro de la agricultura orgánica y regenerativa. Nuestras granjas reemplazan todos los productos químicos sintéticos con compost natural y aerosoles de hierbas. Instamos a todos los fabricantes y consumidores de alimentos a trabajar juntos para que la EPA prohíba el glifosato para ayudar a restaurar la biodiversidad, regenerar el suelo y sanar el planeta que heredarán nuestros hijos”.

Biodynamic is a good choice to not only avoid glyphosate but for better nutrition as well. As explained in a report published in abril 2011 in Scientific American. Compared to conventional produce, biodynamic fruits and vegetables contain 13 percent more potassium, 7 percent more phosphorus, 20 percent more sodium, 7 percent more calcium, and 34 percent more iron, according to a study published in 1999 in "Biodynamics."

In the past, food manufacturers have claimed, that glyphosate levels in food were lower than the EPA allowable levels and therefore not a concern. Recent science has shown, however, that levels below the EPA allowable levels, caused serious harm in independent animal studies. One study by Antoniou et al. showed that glyphosate-based herbicides caused non-alcoholic fatty liver disease in rats at ultra-low levels, comparatively far below levels allowed in our food. Another study by Miles et al. released in January of 2018 showed that when pregnant rats consumed low levels of glyphosate not only did they have infertility issues, but the second generation of their young did as well. Glyphosate herbicide formulations have been shown by Seralini et al. to be endocrine disruptors, causing sex hormone changes even at minuscule amounts, in the parts per billion. Concerned parents are wondering if these chemicals are affecting animals this way, what are they doing to our children?

Screen_Shot_2018-12-11_a las_6.41.32_AM.pngMás de 30 países he prohibido o restringió el uso de glifosato. En agosto 2018, Brasil prohibió el glifosato. El mismo mes, un Molino de cebada australiano anunció que segregaría los granos rociados con glifosato y los granos rociados sin glifosato, mostrando un claro cambio de preferencia en la práctica. Unas semanas antes, una asociación canadiense de productores de trigo anunció el lanzamiento de su Campaña "¡Manténgalo limpio!" alentando a los productores de trigo a que suspendan la práctica de rociar glifosato como agente de secado, señalando que los fabricantes de alimentos pueden rechazar el glifosato. Importadores italianos han reducido los pedidos atrasados de granos rociados con glifosato, en respuesta a la protesta de los consumidores italianos que no quieren herbicidas en su pasta, pizza y pan.

Curator Charlene Wight of the Oat Newsletter stated, “Glyphosate herbicides are not labeled for use as a drying agent before harvest.” This does not mean, however, that a farmer might not bend the rules by saying that he is simply spraying for weed control before harvest. The statement she shared also points out that a mill in Canada no longer accepts glyphosate-sprayed oats due to a degradation of the quality of the grains.

With this new information, the finding of glyphosate in baby food, Moms Across America hopes that oat, rice, wheat, and all grain growers will acknowledge that consumers around the world do not want glyphosate contaminated food, and do not want glyphosate herbicides or any toxins used for any reason on any food crops. Especially not crops that are fed to their babies, who, due to their underdeveloped livers and kidneys, simply do not have the ability to detox the way fully developed adults do.

In a 2014 interview with Dr. Mercola, Andre Leu of the International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movements (IFOAM) stated:

Screen_Shot_2018-12-11_a las_6.41.40_AM.png“Los niños, cuando hablamos de los niños no nacidos, recién nacidos y adultos hasta la pubertad, no tienen las enzimas de desintoxicación en sus hígados que tenemos como adultos. Particularmente para los niños pequeños, eso significa que no tienen forma de desintoxicar ni siquiera la cantidad más pequeña de un pesticida o químico ”.

Consumers say it’s time to make farming and food manufacturing choices that will benefit future generations rather than the farmer’s convenience and chemical company profits. Without healthy babies, we do not have a healthy future for our country. With federal health care costs soaring to $1.5 trillion, higher than military costs, and a government that is failing to take action, it is the responsibility of our farmers and food manufacturers to take steps now to reduce and end toxic exposures in our food supply, to our American population, and especially to our babies and children.

Mamás en toda América is a 501c3 non-profit whose motto is Empowered Moms, Healthy Kids.
