USDA Initiative Launched to ‘Enhance Equity in Child Nutrition Programs’: Opportunity to Push for Real Change in Children’s Abysmal Nutrition

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the Food Research & Action Center (FRAC) have announced an allocation of $1.1 million to five organizations, claiming to, “investigate and dismantle barriers to equitable access in federal child nutrition programs. The initiative, titled the Equitable Access in Child Nutrition Programs project, seeks to enhance the effectiveness of programs crucial for the well-being and development of children across the nation.”

We, at Moms Across America, think that any funds targeted towards improvement of school lunch access should include enhancement in the form of sourcing food without GMOs, glyphosate (a proven neurotoxin and carcinogen), other toxic chemicals, heavy metals, veterinary drugs and hormones and food with more nutrients. The current food supply, including current school meals, is so low in essential vitamins and minerals as to make it virtually impossible to even get the minimum daily requirements children need to function and develop normally.

Genetically Engineered Soil Microbes: Responsible Agriculture Takes Another Hit

In the era of Big Biotech reign and genetic engineering, the introduction of genetically modified (GE) soil microbes into agriculture raises significant concerns. The U.S. Department of Agriculture and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) have jurisdiction over different types of GE microbes and neither organization has developed regulations that account for their unique properties, leaving corporate agriculture giants to their own devices.

From Common Dreams:

A groundbreaking legal action today calls on EPA to immediately suspend and cancel the dangerous herbicide glyphosate.

WASHINGTON - A groundbreaking legal action today calls on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to immediately suspend and cancel the dangerous herbicide glyphosate, the main ingredient in Monsanto's Roundup.

Glyphosate's registration is illegal, says the petition filed by Center for Food Safety on behalf of itself, Beyond Pesticides, and four farmworker advocacy groups. Last year, in a lawsuit by the same nonprofits, a federal court of appeals struck down EPA's human health assessment because the agency wrongfully dismissed glyphosate's cancer risk. Today's petition, calling for the cancellation and suspension of glyphosate's registration, runs over 70 pages and includes more than 200 scientific citations

Childhood Leukemia and leukemia in young adults has increased by an estimated 35% since 1975, with an increase most recently of around 1% a year, according to the CDC. A group of independent scientists from around the world could have just discovered one of the reasons for this – glyphosate-based weed killers, including Bayer’s RoundUp.

MRNA Vaccines in the Food Supply: What You Can do Now

The emergence of messenger ribonucleic acid (mRNA) vaccine technology has transformed the medical landscape, like it or not. The technology used to be researched for cancer (with less than positive results), but when the COVID crisis thrust the gene therapy into the infectious disease arena, global, devastating outcomes have spawned concerns and controversy.

Despite the very real human health concerns, like myocarditis, this modified DNA medicine continues to gain traction. Its presence in the food supply has become front and center for those seeking to avoid the gene-altering tech. (It was CONFIRMED, in April of this year, that cattle farmers WILL be using mRNA vaccines in pigs and cows). States are introducing bills to protect informed consumption, while organic and regenerative farms are taking their stance against this technology entering the food supply. What does this mean for your family in the grocery aisles and what can you do to avoid it?

Abysmally Low Nutrients in Fast Food Test Results

Moms Across America's Top Twenty Fast Food Brand Report on Minerals, Vitamin B, and Calories

Moms Across America announces the results of testing the top twenty fast food brands, (plus In-N-Out Burger) for minerals, and the top ten fast food brands for Vitamin B’s, and calories.

The testing was conducted out of concern for America's skyrocketing mental and physical health crisis. Eighty-five million Americans eat fast food every day. Fast food companies often supply a significant portion of the 30 million school meals served to our children each day. The quality of the food, including the contamination of agrochemicals and lack of nutrients due to toxic chemical inputs, contributes to our mental and physical health issues. One in five Americans have a mental illness, and 54% of our children have a chronic health issue.

Rising Depression Rates in the US & The Link To Glyphosate

New data shows major depression has been on the rise across all age groups in the US, sparking concerns about its underlying causes. At the same time, exposure to the herbicide glyphosate, increasingly used in agriculture, reaches an all time-high.

A recent study has shed light on the connection more precisely, finding a correlation between glyphosate exposure and neurological damage. Data from health insurance providers, including Blue Cross and Blue Shield, highlights the extent of the rise in depression, which has been most prominent among teenagers and young adults.
