Glyphosate Test Results In and Why Everyone Should Care


The Glyphosate Test Results are in and the results, considering that most of the moms and supporters tested are well aware of GMOs and glyphosate and have been avoiding them for several months or years, are alarming.

THANK YOU to all the moms and supporters who generously spent the time and money to send your urine and water samples in. Thank you to Sustainable Pulse for funding the tests for the breast milk samples and to the moms who paid to ship their samples over night.


Full report:
Please share these online and with your local media.
Parents need to know if their children are being poisoned with glyphosate: which is an antibiotic: antibiotics kill gut bacteria which is 70% of immune system and a chelator: strips the body of the vital nutrients needed to fight cancer, illness and grow.
It is also an endocrine disrupotor: affecting hormones and birth defects.
Glyphosate is sprayed on GMOs during growing, on many staple food crops (wheat, sugar, rice, soy, corn etc) as a drying agent at harvest and on the soil of 160 of our non organic food crops.See our "Samsel" blogs for the EPA list
Parents, our children are being assaulted by daily ingestion of toxic chemicals that have been linked to mental illness, diabetes, obesity, asthma, allergies, autism, auto immune diseases and more!
It may seem improbable that one chemical could be the source of so much harm, but when you learn about how glyphosate works (basically giving a weed AIDS by destroying it's immune system) it all makes sense.
When you learn that glyphosate destroys gut bacteria and the gut bacteria is the  where Tryptophan, Seratonin ( which regulates insulin) and Melatonin are created, it all makes sense.
When you learn that glyphosate breaks down the blood brain barrier and let's toxins into the brain, from vaccines and the environment, it all makes sense.
When you learn that glyphosate impairs the liver's ability to detox, allowing heavy metals to build up in the body, it all makes sense.
What doesn't make sense is that the EPA and FDA allow this.
Comments from Dr. Stephanie Seneff, co author with Samsel of two glyphosate papers, both found under "data".

Stephanie Seneff, Senior Research Scientist, MIT

"It is certainly disheartening to know that glyphosate is present in breast milk, but lest you think this means you should not nurse your baby, please be aware that soy-based formula probably also contains glyphosate, possibly in even higher concentrations. The US government has conducted very few studies measuring the amount of glyphosate residue in food, but a report issued by the Department of Agriculture in 2011 showed that over 90% of 300 samples of soy contained glyphosate, and nearly 96% contained AMPA, a derivative of glyphosate. Today, 90% of the soy crop in the US is "Roundup Ready," which means you can spray Roundup on it and it won't die. Contrary to what was claimed, this growth in Roundup Ready crops has led to a tremendous increase in the amount of Roundup applied to our core crops over the past decade.

I had been intensely researching possible connections between autism and a variety of different toxic chemicals in the environment for many years before I thought to take a look at glyphosate as a possible contributor to autism.  This delay was of course a consequence of the widely disseminated message that glyphosate is nearly nontoxic to humans. However, once I started looking, I was astonished to find that all of the many comorbidities associated with autism could be explained by glyphosate's known mode of action on biological systems.  Anthony Samsel and I have teamed up to write two papers detailing our findings on the diverse ways in which glyphosate disrupts human physiology, and linking glyphosate to a number of diseases and conditions that are currently on the rise in the US - a partial list includes autism, obesity, Alzheimer's disease, diabetes, and various gut disorders like Celiac disease and inflammatory bowel disease.  We are still researching this topic, and nearly every day we are discovering new ways in which glyphosate can negatively impact health.  The problem is that the effects are insidious -- glyphosate erodes your health slowly over time, so that it's hard for people to realize what's happening to them until it's too late."
We must speak up. We must stop buying GMO food and food that is sprayed with pesticides!
Please join us in 4th of July parades to let everyone know about GMOs and pesticides in your town in a single day! If not you who? If not now, when?
Plus it's FUN and so easy to join into a parade. Sign up at www.momsacrossamerica.com/events_all
Write to the EPA Roundup Review manager: [email protected]
We need the world to know about GMOs and glyphosate.
All proceeds go towards empowering people in health and freedom!
We must protect our children NOW.
P.S. The Good News is that you can eliminate detectable levels of glyphosate from your body! Buy only organic! or Non GMO AND Organic. Thank you!

The Food Trifecta at Natural Products Expo West

Once a year in Southern California, the masses of people, 70,000 approximately, converge upon the Anaheim Convention Center to buy and sell natural foods at the NPEW or Natural Products Expo West. I had the opportunity to report on the show as a host of the Weekly Women GMO Free News Show.

You have never seen so many Non GMO Project Verified and USDA Organic  seals in one place. You have never seen so many delightful, happy people talking about how their products are GMO free, organic and Gluten free! As a mother of children with multiple allergies, this is a thrilling development. Trying to find all three, GMO free, organic and Gluten free is like trying to find a needle in a hay stack even in a health food store even in one of the most affluent areas of America. Most products are either gluten free or organic, not both. Or they are Non GMO Project verified but not gluten free or organic.

Why is it so hard to find these foods?

Or more importantly why do we even need gluten free, non GMO and organic?

Is it just a trend or marketing ploy?

When I asked the food manufacturers, many of them said “Organic is the future.” I was surprised that they did not elaborate, talk about pesticides, glyphosate or GMOs. Some like “Good Boy Organics” are fully aware and are actively supporting the grassroots movements. They even go a step further and have BioDynamic pasta sauce! Check it out!

But many others, I suspect, do not know why the trifecta: non GMO,organic and gluten free is so crucial to moms.

1 out of 2 American children now has some form of chronic illness such as asthma, allergies, auto immune disorders, autism, diabetes or obesity. If you do the math, based on past diagnosis, 1 out if 2 children will have autism in the next 20 years. This is a crisis. This is urgent. Moms across America are struggling daily with health and behavioral issues and we want solutions.

Many of us now believe we know those solutions, and the winning food trifecta is a key role.


In addition to the over 1300 studies showing GMO harm, found on www.GMOfreeUSA.com, the recent evidence from the *Samsel and Seneff paper shows a very strong correlation between glyphosate, the active chemical ingredient in RoundUp and these skyrocketing children’s health issues, (the most widely used pesticide/herbicide in the world) especially autism. Most GMOs are genetically engineered to withstand Roundup, are sprayed repeatedly during growing and these chemical does not wash off. A new Soybean paper showed GMO soy with drastically higher levels of glyphosate, proving it does not evaporate in the sun either. Soil testing has shown glyphosate to still be active a year after use.

Glyphosate has been show to destroy gut bacteria at .10 (one tenth) of a part per million in chickens.

The gut bacteria are the stronghold of 70% of our immune system. If you destroy the gut bacteria, which is likely what is happening when you eat the America diet which is 85% GMO and contaminated with glyphosate, your body’s gut bacteria can no longer produce Tryptophan*.

Without Tryptophan your body cannot produce Seratonin or Melatonin*. Seratonin makes it possible for the body to regulate insulin, so without healthy gut bacteria we are more likely to develop diabetes.  We know that diabetes has increased so much in America that in 13 years we will have no money left in the federal budget for anything except diabetes.

 Melatonin influences sleep, happiness, satiation when eating, impulse control, bi-polar behavior and even acts of violence. Obesity now impacts 40% of Americans, our kids are three times more likely to be drugged for mental illness than kids in other countries, and on average, there has been a school shooting in America every other day this year.  Violence and mental illness is beyond control. Something is impacting the health of America. The USA is the  #1 country in the world in expenditures for health and last on the list  of the top 17 most developed country in actual health results.


Organic means Non GMO seeds. It also means toxic pesticide free and glyphosate free.

Non organic is not just a more affordable chice, there is a cost: glyphosate is allowed to be sprayed on the soil before planting non organic crops and directly on many staple crops at harvest as a drying agent. They spray it directly on the non organic food crops we eat! We have recetly learned that the EPA has allowable levels of glyphosate on over 160 foods at hundreds of times higher than has been destroy gut bacteria. See the full list here.Sweet potatoes glyphosatelevels are 3ppm, Potatoes, 5ppm, tea 7ppm, corn 13ppm, and our live stock eats grains at 400 ppm. Glyphosate collects in the tissue of meat, making organic meat a very important choice.


People with gluten sensitivity report irritability when they consume gluten/wheat. Huge numbers of children with autism have shown dramatically better behavior when gluten is removed from their diets. Many are also reporting autism symptoms dissapear when they eat completely organic. Moms Across America has over a hundred testimonials, many of them about autism.

Glyphosate is sprayed on wheat as a drying agent. Wheat is one of the number one foods of the American diet, in cereals, sandwich breads, pasta, commonly eaten at every meal. Gluten intolerance and Celiac’s disease now affects 18 million Americans. Reports by Samsel and Seneffs show that is most likely not just the highly refined processing of wheat/gluten, that is impacting health, but the glyphosate. This is why the trifecta of Non GMO,organic and gluten free is so important, and why the companies who choose to make these foods, that are ALL THREE, despite the difficulties, are not a trend or duping me with a marketing ploy. They are the winners.

Here is a big winner in our house: Mary's Gone Cracker's GF, organic and Non GMO Project Verified Double Chocolate Cookies

The additional good news, is that in the process, you avoid other toxic chemicals of which we still do not know the effects. Non organic apples are sprayed with 21 different pesticides, strawberries 184, and coffee has tested positive for hundreds of toxic chemicals, more thanany other crop.

So when I find a food company that is Non GMO, organic gluten free and excuse me if I am chirpy, super excited and highlighting them like they are heros of the universe. Because considering that my children are my universe, they are.

Here is OH Yes! Pizza that is Gluten Free and Organic (and therefore GMO Free).

Here are some great finds at the NPEW:

late_july_chips.jpg        organic_beef_jerky.jpg       organic_juice.jpg     

 oatmeal.jpg     Boulder_Organic_icecream.jpg


 Next blog will be about the other heros of food, the makers of probiotics, raw organic fermented veges, kombucha and keifer.  We CAN heal our guts and heal from multiple allergies.  Find our more about cultured foods in our next blog.

Here's too good healthy eating!

China and GMO Double Standard

China has a double standard regarding GMOs. While their officials have a sign proudly declaring the oil in their cafeteria GMO free, the school cafeterias for the children of citizens do not.


The sign in the accompanying photo hangs in the corridor of the Ministry of Education building in Beijing. It begins, “Our Canteen Does Not Use Food Containing GM Ingredients.” It further states, “The issue of whether GM food is harmful to human health is currently without consensus within academia. GM food has only appeared [in China] for a short period making it very difficult at present to appropriately assess it's impact on long-term safety. Further research and longer time is required for verification. To eliminate the concerns of diners, and to assure the safety and health of our staff members, our Ministry of Education Office Canteen temporarily will not use food oil containing GM ingredients and GM food materials. Please enjoy your food without any such concern.”

(Note: The sign contains a link to the original chinese blog
http://blog.sina.com.cn/s/blog_4bb17e9d0102ebun.html the original source of information)

See link to new article by Nancy Swanson here:


The officials must be well aware of the potential GMO health implications.  But are they aware of the increased risk to children? Perhaps they don't know how, in the US, which grows many of the GMO crops China imports to process GMO soybean oil, has an EPA allowable level of 40 ppm of glyphosate? Glyphosate is sprayed on GMOs:canola, cotton, corn and soy oil, and as a drying agent on non GMO crops such as rice, wheat, corn, soy, sugar. And .10 one tenth of a part per million has been shown to destroy gut bacteria which is the strong hold of our immune system. Glyphosate has been linked to autism, allergies, auto immune, asthma, diabetes, obesity, ADHD, alzheimers and depression...all health issues which are skyrocketing in America's children? Or do they? Is that why they themselves are avoiding them?

Moms Across America has hundreds of testimonials from Moms whose children are getting better by going GMO/Glyphosate free. We wish the parents of China to know this too. We wish the officials in China would understand the possible jeopardy they put their country in by allowing GMO/glyphosate into their school cafeterias.

Our country serves our children 31 million GMO meals in schools per day. It must be hundreds of millions more in China.school_lunch.jpg

Every food item above most likely contains GMOs and/or glyphosate at levels thousands of time higher than shown to damage animals. Want proof? Ask the FDA to produce tests and results.

And here is a chart of the allowable levels of glyphosate permitted on our food crops:

Click here for USA EPA allowable glyphosate levels.

One school nurse said,

"Our school in Arkansas has 170 out of our 600 children in Special Ed and this does not include the children with autism who are in the regular classrooms. 50% of all our students have either asthma or allergies. They are ALL eating these GMO meals and for many of them they are the only food they get because we are in a low income area, and they are always hungry. The food does not have enough nutritional value and they are being devastated, I believe, because it is GMO and chemicals. Our children are being devastated. This has to stop."

 Here is what our Moms are saying.

Mom's testimonials:

  • "My son has had severe autism. As a single Mom who makes about 40 K, it's tough but we only eat organic because I found out about GMOs about 2 years ago. When we went organic, after about 2 weeks, my father thought I was giving my son a new drug, because he saw such improvements, but I said "Nope, just went organic." This year he entered high school and not one of his teachers could tell he ever used to have severe autism symptoms. He is with the regular classes and he is doing well." - Cindy, MAA
  • "I went GMO free and after about a month, my Fibromyaglia symptoms went away." - Belinda
  • "I had an auto immune disease for 8 years. I was on different medications for it and actually had surgery for it. It was a living nightmare. I took GMOs almost completely out of my diet 8 months ago and the symptoms are gone! Some of my family think I'm crazy for posting so many food posts about GMOs but I know first hand how devastating the effects are. Doctors said there is no cure for my disease. I found the cure...stop eating GMOs!!!!"- Morgan M.
  • "My son had a rash around his mouth now and then but since getting off GMOs he doesn’t have that problem any more. My daughter’s tummy used to puff out after meals and she’d get a belly ache. She doesn’t get those after meals since we went off GMOs. I used to feel like my skin was crawling but I don’t get that anymore since being off GMOs." - Laurie O., WA. , MAA
  •  “My child eats non GMO and organic now and no longer throws up after eating. I believe that the Moms posting about GMOs on Facebook saved my child’s life.” – Jennifer L.
  • My 7 year old son was diagnosed with asthma and needed glasses inside of two weeks. I started learning about asthma and natural ways to control it. Then I found out about GMO. I removed my family from GMO foods/drinks. My 7 year old went from needing a nebulizer 3x’s a day to not at all. His asthma disappeared. He also no longer had the stigmatism that required glasses. The eye Dr. said he must have had ‘some sort of inflammation’ that is now gone for whatever reason. The reason was removing GMO from our diets. He was recommended for retention last year. This year, he is at the top of his class. Karen L. ~Moms Across America


We understand China is rejecting SOME GMO crops see link here: http://rt.com/news/china-rejects-us-corn-087/ 

but from mother to parent-official, we ask you to reconsider rejecting all GMO crops. We understand, due to supply, it will need to be a slow process, but PLEASE start with your schools. We do not want to see the children of China end up like the children of America.


1 out of 2 children are projected to have Autism in the next 20 years or sooner. This cannot happen. What will our country be like? What would our society, military, job force and economy be like? Who will take care of aging parents or bear children and continue the success of our countries?

 For the officials who would like more scientific data here is a study on how glyphosate contributed to the over growth of deadly bacteria by destroying the benficial gut bacteria at lavels far below what is allowed in our food crops.

CLICK Here for study on chickens and glyphosate.

We urge all countries to stop allowing GMO oils, food, crops and animal feed in their country, but particularly China, as you import so much GM food to feed soo many. You have the largest influence on the GM industry. Please hear the cries of American mother who, since the introduction of GMOs and glyphosate in our food supply 20 years ago,  are dealing with gut dysbiosis in their children at extraodinarialy high levels, resulting in autism, auto immune disorders, allergies, IBS, Chrohn's disease, and contributing to asthma, depression, bi polar, acts of violence, obesity, diabetes and possibly the rise in childhood cancers.

No long term studies have been show to prove that GMOs and glyphosate, which are in 85% of our processed food, are not responsible for the USA being LAST on the list of the 17 most developed countries for health.

NO studies have been done to prove that GMOs and Glyphosate are not responsible for the devastating decline of our children's health.

We believe GMOs and Glyphosate are compromising an entire generation of our children, because we see the results everyday.

Millions of mothers, 1 out of 50, struggle everyday with children who cannot control their behavior in public or at home, who act violently towards family members, smear feces on the walls, inappropriate sexual tendencies, uncontrollable tics and movements, cannot control their urination even as teenagers. Children who showed no health issues at all and then all of a sudden did not speak, make eye contact or whose performance in school suddenly plummeted. Our children are being compromised by autism. They are suffering from a myriad of health issues. There is a silent epidemic happening in America. 1 out of 2 of our children now have some form of chronic illness in America. We ask, as mothers, for you, parents, officials in China and in countries around the world,  to protect your children of our human race.

Thank you.

Could GMO Labels Have Saved Her Son's Life?

"My story includes some things that might upset some people, I’m sorry if it does, but it’s the truth.  I am sharing some very personal things with you because I am real and the effects of GMOs on my life have been profound.  If GMOs were labeled it might have saved my son’s life.

It all started about three years ago in the fall of 2010, around Thanksgiving, when our son was 22 years old.  He had moved back in with my husband and I almost three years before.  He told me he was having gastrointestinal problems, predominately diarrhea that didn’t seem to be going away.  At first I thought it was a possible intestinal virus that would clear up on it’s own.  I encouraged him to drink lots of fluids and started asking him about what he had been eating.

After the Christmas holidays had come and gone, Joe wasn’t doing any better.  I had cleaned out my refrigerator of anything that had expired.  Hubby did some maintenance on our dishwasher and I even temporarily hand washed all the dishes.  Nothing seemed to help.

After the beginning of the new year, Joe went into the doctor’s to find out what was causing his malady.  Test results for bacterial, viral or parasites were done and everything showed up “normal”.  It was anything but.

I hadn’t heard about GMOs, nor did I know much about what was being done to our food.  I wish I knew then, what I know now and that is what compels me to share this with you.  However, I didn’t learn about GMOs until much later in my story.

On 3月 4, 2011, it was Joe’s 23rd birthday and it was also the day he took his own life.

I did a tribute to Joe, one week after his memorial service.  In Memory of Joe show notes share Joe’s picutre and the credits for the music used in the tribute.  It was a special edition of my podcast, Ba Ba Blacksheep. See the link below for podcast.

 Did you know that 20% of the people in the US have had their lives touched by suicide?

Recent research suggests a connection between our intestinal flora and our brain, especially with respect to depression.

GMO Tryptophan Seratonin – Jeffrey Smith, Executive Director of the Institute for Responsible Technology interviews Stephanie Seneff, PhD

I was feeding my child food filled with toxins and chemicals that I never would have guessed would be allowed in our food.  So a part of me will always feel guilty that I didn’t learn more and change Joe’s diet to organic." -Diane

How could she have known? She couldn't! NO ONE thinks to look for ingredients that they do not know about. NO ONE can tell if an ingredient is in a product if it is not labeled. NO ONE can connect a potentially life threatening ingredient to their family member's illness if IT IS NOT LABELED and they DO NOT KNOW that they are feeding it to them! NO ONE!

This is exactly why the opposition DOES NOT WANT GMOs labeled however, they do not want us to be able to link their ingredient to our illnesses. Because then they lose money.

We moms will not let money or denial stop us. We have the gift of gab. We come from love. We will share.

We thank Diane for her courage, authenticity and extraordinary act of generosity in sharing this story and in creating a website to empower others.

Swanson Charts: Glyphosate and GMOs linked to Neurological Disorders and More

Nancy Swanson has done extensive research that we Moms with little ones just do not take the time to do. 

We are very grateful for her charts which very clearly depict a correlation between GMOs sprayed with Glyphosate and numerous childhood and adult illnesses which plague or families in America.

The endocrine disrupting properties of glyphosate can lead to neurological disorders (learning disabilities (LD), attention deficit hyperactive disorder (ADHD), autismdementiaAlzheimer's,schizophrenia and bipolar disorder). Those most susceptible are children and the elderly.

To see the full article on neurological disorders  The Examiner click here.


In addition, GMOs and Glyphosate have been linked to birth defects and infant deaths:

For Swanson's article on the examiner:http://www.examiner.com/article/mounting-evidence-that-gmo-crops-can-cause-infertility-and-birth-defects

2013 Argentina:
Dr Medardo Vasquez is a neonatal specialist at the Children's Hospital in Cordoba. "I see
new-born infants, many of who are malformed. I have to tell parents that their children are
dying because of these agricultural methods. In some areas in Argentina the primary cause of
death for children less than one year old are malformations." Fritz Kreiss: News Report
Sunday 17 3月 2013

I recently looked up just one city in the USA. Sacremento CA.

Out the top five reasons for the death of children 57% of them were conditions (SIDS, congential birth defects, anomalies etc) that we are seeing a correlation to GMOs and Glyphosate.

For the Rosemary Mason "Glyphosate: Destructor of Human Health" paper showing numerous health issue correlations click here.

Childhood deaths is tragic enough. For the living we hope for smooth sailing.

But studies now show that 50%of our children will have Autism in the next 20 years if we continue at the current rate.

High rates of autism could compromise the future success of a child, our families, our society and economy. This is urgent.


Awareness about this correlation and further conclusive studies should be the number one priority of the CDC and AAP today. The FDA and EPA need to do their jobs and protect American health!

Sign our Petition today! Click here

Thank you to the researchers and scientists who are assembling this information. It DOES correlate with what Moms are seeing, which is that when we remove GMOs ( and glyphosate) from their diet and they eat organic food, their health conditions improve.

New GMO Soybean Paper Results

A new Soybean Paper comparing 31 soybean batches shows that GMO soybeans ARE substantially different from non GMO soybeans, are drastically less nutritious, and are contaminated with toxic levels of glyphosate.

 Compositional differences in soybeans on the market: glyphosate accumulates in Roundup Ready GM soybeans, Food Chemistry (2013), doi: http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.foodchem.2013.12.054


This article describes the nutrient and elemental composition, including residues of herbicides and pesticides, of 31 soybean batches from Iowa, USA. The soy samples were grouped into three different categories: i) genetically modified, glyphosate-tolerant soy (GM-soy); ii) unmodified soy cultivated using a conventional “chemical” cultivation regime; and iii) unmodified soy cultivated using an organic cultivation regime. Organic soybeans showed the healthiest nutritional profile with more sugars, such as glucose, fructose, sucrose and maltose, significantly more total protein, zinc and less fibre than both conventional and GM-soy. Organic soybeans also contained less total saturated fat and total omega-6 fatty acids than both conventional and GM-soy. GM-soy contained high residues of glyphosate and AMPA (mean 3.3 and 5.7 mg/kg, respectively). Conventional and organic soybean batches contained none of these agrochemicals. Using 35 different nutritional and elemental variables to characterise each soy sample, we were able to discriminate GM, conventional and organic soybeans without exception, demonstrating “substantial non-equivalence” in compositional characteristics for ‘ready- to-market’ soybeans.

"Subsantial Non-equivalence"???

The entire basis of GMO foods not needing FDA long term human safety testing because they are "Not substantially-unequivalent" to non GMO foods is FALSE*. The FDA needs to put a moratorium on GMO foods now,do the testing required and remove any harmful ingredients from our food. Please sign our petition today http://www.momsacrossamerica.com/action

Did you see the levels of Glyphosate?

Glyphosate is the active chemical ingredient in Roundup ( most widely used herbicide) and has been linked to autism, Alzheimer's, asthma, allergies, auto immune disorders, diabetes, bi polar and more. The average levels found below are tens of thousands times higher than what was shown to be toxic in an animal study in Europe: .1 ppm. Breast cancer cell growth proliferated in the presence of glyphosate in an Asian study at a tenth of a part per trillion. The allowable levels are outrageous.Even if they do meet "EPA allowable levels" these standards are for a 175 pound man, not a baby or child. There should be NO glyphosate in our food. The science for glyphosate, claiming it is safe is now 20 years old. The latest research show glyphosate causing organ damage, damage to gut bacteria(therefore the immune system), impairing of the liver's function to detox and breaking down of the blood brain barrier, allowing toxins in. ( See Samsel and Seneff and Mason Papers on previous blogs)

Well, I don't really drink soy milk or eat much Tofu, you may think..so I don't have anything to worry about. Do you drink lemonade at restaurants? There is soy in there. Do you eat chinese food with soy sauce? Snack bars and processed foods with soy lecithin? Eat beef jerky? Fries at restaurants? Soy, Soy, soybean oil. Soy products are in huge amount of our foods and this paper points out clearly that we are being robbed of nutrients, contaminated with a harmful chemical and frankly, lied to by Big Ag and Big Chem.

 Mom don't take well to lying. We find out the truth. We research.

Please do your own research and get your child's urine tested for glyphosate: http://www.momsacrossamerica.com/glyphosate_testing

Thank you to these courageous and committed people for finding and sharing the truth:  Bøhn, T., Cuhra, M., Traavik, T., Sanden, M., Fagan, J., Primicerio, R. for this paper.

The link to the full paper of the above abstract summary, published by Food Chemistry:


To see additional papers on the effects of Roundup and glyphosate:


If Roundup/Glyphosate does this to food bacteria, what is it doing to the bacteria in our gut lining ( ie: immune sytem)? It would't take a rocket scientist to surmise that Roundup/Glyphosate is most likely destroying our gut bacteria, and therefore the stronghold -70% of our immune system. WITHOUT OUR GUT BACTERIA we slowly get sick and die. Period. Seems to me our health insurance companies might want to look into this Roundup. For sure I hope Moms and Dads do, because kids can't. They need us. If you want to read more, click below:

*See this article from Washington University also showing a new discovery, that proteins are not the only things manipulated during Genetic Engineering, genes are affected as well, and could be impacting increased rates of disease and cancer. This makes GMO foods SUBSTANTIALLY Un Equivalent! http://www.washington.edu/news/2013/12/12/scientists-discover-double-meaning-in-genetic-code/

Want to do something about this? Send this new information to your Newspaper Editors. Demand it be published. Send it to your favorite food manufactures asking for a statement about GMO soy. Make your demand for healthy, whole GMO free and Glyphosate free food HEARD.

It's up to us Moms, we buy 85% of the food!


 UPDATE: New GMO Corn paper shows that GMO corn is also substantially different from non GMO.

continue to eat chicken, pork, turkey and beef. All GMO foods, unbeknownst to me.

My Son was able to tolerate soy, and I fed him “tofu” ice cream. He had a reaction

to the chocolate version of the ice cream and then I had him tested for cocoa beans,

which revealed, that he had “grown into” the allergy. During this time, I fed him

ground beef burgers, filet mignon and brisket. (all GMO ) He ate it fine for a long

while, then when he was about 2.5 (7月 2009) he had a severe reaction to filet

mignon. He “grew into” the beef allergy. I also got rid of any soaps that have “beef

tallow” or “tallowate” in them, because he was being exposed to beef with soaps

and shampoos, too. I started to feed him Ground Turkey (GMO) instead of the beef,

which he tolerated for a while, until he was tested in April of 2010, he had “grown

into” an allergy to Turkey!

On a letter dated 2月 5, 2010, my son (3.5 years old) was currently tested for and

was allergic to: milk, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, rye, chocolate, beef, shellfish, fish and

sesame seeds. (In April of 2010, he “grew into” an allergy to Turkey.)

It seemed he was acquiring more allergies, not growing out of them.

I believe my son “grew into” more food allergies, because:

(a.) I was feeding him GMOs (unknowingly) 

(b.) During this time, also my son was having “contact” reactions to GMO 

foods in children’s play areas – the frequent exposures made the allergy worse not better.

(c.) I was using toxic household cleaners, laundry detergent, soaps,shampoos , BPA toys, etc.

( Side notes from MAA founder, Zen Honeycutt - Glyphosate, which most GMOs are genetically engineered to withstand and are therefore doused with glyphosate, and is allowed by the EPA at levels which far exceed that which has been shown to be toxic in animals,  to contaminate 160 of our non organic foods. Glyphosate has been shown to break down the blood brain barrier, ( See Samsel and Seneff paper)  which could allow above stated toxins to enter cell tissues that normally may not.)


The protein in food takes two weeks to break down on a surface, so if a child

spilled milk and then my son came along and touched that table top or that toy,

he would have a “contact” reaction where his skin would break out in hives and

I would have to clean the skin area and then administer benadryll. During this

time, I thought these little “contact exposures’ would help “desensitize” him to his

food allergies. But the opposite was true: According to my son’s allergist …”It is

true. Each exposure to the food is like a small booster shot reminding the immune

system of the allergen thus keeping the allergy alive. This is true with infrequent or

intermittant exposures.”

So during this time, of feeding him GMO foods (unknowingly), GMO contact

reactions and exposures of toxins on a daily basis, his blood work numbers were


I decided during the year of 2010, to keep him home as much as possible because I

did not cook or eat with any of his food allergens. Thus, making my home a safe area

where he would not have any contact reactions. He was having several every week,

at the grocery store, in the shopping cart, at the library during story time, he even

had a contact reaction at the Drs. Office in 11月 2010, during a routine visit. Because

a child /nurse/doctor right before us had just consumed something with one of his

food allergies ( the appointment had been right after the dr. office’s lunch break)

It was during this time, that I first read, “The Unhealthy Truth” by Robyn

O’Brien and I started to think that if I fed him more organic, he would get better.

Fortunately, a lot of the pre-packaged allergy free foods are GMO free, so I had been

starting to feed him half organic already. Luckily, the only safe Soy Milk for my son

happened to be Organic. But his fruit juice and even the bread flour I used to make

his own safe bread was not Organic. But when I finished Robyn O’Brien’s book, I

really started to buckle down and get rid of all non-Organic foods.

I also read the book by Kenneth Bock, MD, and Cameron Stauth “ Healing the New

Childhood Epidemics” Autism, ADHD, Asthma and Allergies: The Groundbreaking

Program for the 4-A Disorders --- It was in this book, that I first read about our toxic

environment, that wreaks havoc on an immature immune system. This is when I

also, started to try and get rid of as many household cleaners, laundry detergent, etc.

and use as much “green” cleaners as possible.

In April of 2010, he grew out of his Cocoa Beans and Shellfish allergies.

In August of 2011, he grew out of his  Fish, Sesame Seeds and Rye allergies.

In February of 2013, he grew out of  his Turkey allergy.

He is still allergic to Milk, Eggs, Peanuts, Tree Nuts and Beef. But all of these

numbers have come down in severity (please see the Xcel spreadsheet)


In his test (2月 2013) the Egg and the Peanut number went up about 4 points,

but I think this is due to perhaps infrequent “contact “ reactions (of GMO food) in

his school cafeteria. Our Allergist had said also, that sometimes, right before you

grow out of a food allergy, the number spikes up a little and then goes back down.

This last test, (8月 2013) you can see the number went back down. So either he

is growing out of it, or it is because he has been home all summer away from the

cafeteria in school.

I also would like to add, that in 2008, I gave birth to a beautiful Baby Girl, it was a

V-BAC . I had been eating Half-Organic during that pregnancy because of the diet we

had at home, conformed around my Son’s. She was born without any food allergies.

UPDATE : on my daughter

Since my daughter had no known Food allergies, (before I questioned GMO foods) I

would let her indulge in birthday parties at school or a friends house. My husband

and I would let her have birthday cake or pizza (probably GMO) -- I felt, at the time,

that why should I let her suffer because of my Son’s food allergies?

On the weekends, my daughter had ballet class on Saturdays, my husband would

take her to class and then sneak her to a local bakery where they both would eat

donuts (prob GMO)

( Side note: Donuts are deffinately wheat, and a Monsanto study showed that the biggest absorption of glyphosate was contributed by wheat products which are sprayed with glyphosate in the drying process. Glyphosate has been shown to destroy the gut bacteria, which comprises 70% of our immune system stronghold.)

Because, we let her eat GMO birthday cupcakes, GMO donuts and GMO pizza

(outside of our home) I believe, she developed Celiac Disease. There is something

about my children, that they absolutely can not handle the GMO foods in their


( Side note: It is not just her children, it is a hugely growing population of our children that are being impacted and no one knows which child will be next and how it will impact them, a slow degeneration of their immune systems or a sudden fatal food allergy attack. We simply don't know. But what Moms of children with allergies DO know, and see, is that their children get better when they avoid GMOs)

From Samsel and Seneff's paper and presentation: 
I think that the “Food Allergy Bitch” summed it up perfectly in her blog…

Food allergies are not a genetic disease. Let me say it again. 

Food allergies are not a genetic disease.

In case you didn't learn this in school, changes to the genetic code take 

many hundreds of generations to happen. Food allergies have DOUBLED 

in just the last 10 years. Right now, one in 13 kids has a food allergy and it 

looks like the number is continuing to increase.

Food allergies are a disease of the immune system. Unlike the genetic 

code, the immune system can adapt to changes in the environment in 

a generation, but it can only go so far. These kids are not genetically 

deficient. They are a warning. They are the canary in the coal mine. 


Something has changed in our environment that is affecting ALL of us. 

The "peanut kid" may have an allergy as a result -- but that doesn't mean 

that YOUR immune system isn't also reacting in some way you can't see. 

Whatever's affecting the peanut kids is probably affecting you as well.

Food allergies are just the tip of the iceberg. All diseases that affect the 

intestinal tract are rising at an incredible rate. Crohn's disease. Asthma. 

Autoimmune disorders like lupus and diabetes. Cancer. Even if you're 

not in the 25% of the population prone to allergic disorders, you should 

understand that cancer could be in your future. Doesn't it seem like a good 

idea to you to figure out what the changes are in our environment that are 

leading to such a dramatic increase in all these diseases?


So, today, I cook and bake an Organic, Egg-Free, Dairy-Free, Gluten-Free,

Nut-Free diet for my kids. I feed them all Organic. I don’t feel bad anymore about my

daughter “missing out” on the GMO pizza or GMO cupcake at a party –

I feel bad for the unsuspecting parents, who let their kids eat this dangerous food, at

some point, it will catch up with them too. One day their children will be diagnosed

with something too.

The obesity rate, the type-2 diabetes, the food allergies, the diagnosis of celiac,

Asthma, Autism, ADHD – more parents should be alarmed."

-Veronica R. NJ

Please note: Allergies are not the problem, they are in fact, the body's way of sending a warning signal that there is inflammation in the body. Inflammation in the gut can lead to stomach ulcers and cancer if left unresolved. Finding out about your child's allergies could prevent life threatening health issues. Avoiding GMOs also avoids foreign proteins and "promoters" which "wake up genes". We still don't know if these promoters could be "waking up" cancer genes or latent disease genes in our children. Cancer is the number one killer of American children today ( see Robyn O'Brien's blog) so this is not just about GMos and allergies, this is about life and the people we love.

Happy Holidays and a Healthy New Year!


 From our families to yours, we wish you a very Happy Holidays!


We wish everyone will rest, relax and cherish their families.We also wish you healthy and happy holiday gatherings! 
Here are some Mom-Tried-and-True-Holiday tips: 1.Always ask what the ingredients are in each dish, (never assume Aunt Josie made her banana bread the same way!) before you serve it to your child with allergies. We have spent one too many holiday gatherings in the ER. It's better to be safe than sorry!  2. Bake and bring your children's favorite GMO free dessert to gatherings so you know they can enjoy a treat. 3. Ask your family to buy organic food ahead of time! If we don't ask they might not think it is important! Let them know where they can buy organic in your neighborhood and what is most important to avoid GMOs and toxic chemicals: corn, soy, canola oil, squash, potatoes, carrots, and sugar.  We thank you for continuing to share with your friends and family about GMOs and Glyphosate (and associated toxic chemicals) in our food. They may think they don't want to know, but most likely now, everyone in America loves someone who has health issues. When they find out about GMOs and associated toxic chemicals like Glyphosate, you give them access to health and freedom. Thank you.  We also ask that if you are able to donate to Moms Across America, we are stepping up our efforts in the coming year and all resources are needed. I just spoke with a school nurse in Arkansas and she said 50% of the children in her school have allergies or asthma. 170 out of 600 are in Special Ed  and this does not count the numerous children with Autism. She said her student's health is being devastated. This is a national crisis. We need to take actions in the coming year to make GMO info and GMO free solutions available to every American. One of the best ways we know how is to be in every 4th of July Parade we can, with thousands of people in home towns and millons nationally, able to see our message. Our goal is 400 parades signed up by 2月 14,"Share the Love, Sign Up Your Parade Day,"because we love our families! Invite your family to plan ahead and join in a parade with you this summer! We hope you will support getting GMO info flyers to 5000 people at each parade. Just $15.00 reaches over 200 families, and $50.00 nearly 700.  Thank you for giving generously!!! Every dollar counts! We can create a healthy and happy New Year for all! Happy Holidays!!! Zen, Kathleen and the MAAM Team

Our Sick Children are Collateral Damage in War for Power


Watch Dr. Pang at 8:18 speak about one of the reasons why the government wants the USA and other countries to have genetically modified foods.

Just in case you cannot view it, what is shown is Dr. Pang from Hawaii describing a few ways in which the government is trying to stop us from talking about or stopping the spread of GMOs. They may to pre-empt our right to know with several arguments. One could be that it is a "Homeland Security Issue."

In other words, a national security issue. Dr. Pang describes how, in Hawaii, after 911 they had several homeland security talks and some Homeland Security men visited them from Texas, to talk about food security. There was "one guy who looked like Dick Cheney" he said, "that I spoke to and he said," "Mono crops, GMOs, are the most dangerous thing of all." and Dr. Pang, asked lightly "Can I quote you?"

The Homeland Security representattive said "Oh yeah, mono crops are very dangerous, when the crops get wiped out, you get wiped OUT."
So Dr.Pang asked, "You'll speak against them, here on the islands?" 
He said, "You don't understand...we want the enemy to have it, Iran and China, so you never have to invade them, you just say "I'll turn off your seed...or your seed is going to expire in 3 years."
So Dr. Pang asked "But then why do we have it?"

The Homeland Security man said,"We kinda have to have it so we can show them, and they will think it's ok for them to have it."

As an American I am outraged.

Our American  farmers get wiped out from GMO mono crop problems with increasingly resistent weeds and pests. For example, the entire orange industry in Florida right now is plagued. They are genetically engineering the orange trees with pig genes to "protect" them from the problem. (I wonder how our Jewish, Hindu and Muslim Americans feel about that?)The entire orange industry is being told that they are now dependant on one company for GE seeds when they used to have a thriving industry for generations before. (The truth is the issue can be resolved with Bio Dynamic farming some are actually doing that.)

As a mother I am horrified.

Our children are collateral damage in a war for world power.

The health implications of GMO foreign proteins and glyphosate sprayed food are overwhelemingly increasing. The 400%-1500% increase in childhood illness such as allergies, autism, asthma, auto immune disorders and the number one killer of American children now, cancer, have all been linked to GMOs and glyphosate (sprayed on GMOs and does not wash off). An yet this is acceptable for the government because we "need" world power.

As a human being I am unstoppable in my stand for health and freedom.

Our human population is being experiemented on for the wealth and power of the elite few. Now the concept is nothing new, world leaders have always been vying for world power and the little people have always been collateral damage. There is an acceptable level of collateral damage.

But what is new about this global movement is that they are controlling the USA media to stop us to find out about this and they are putting this dangerous crop in 80% of our food. It's not just a few. We are being experimented on in a national nd global scale and the top scientists and government officials have all been brainwashed to think that these crops are safe under the guise of national security. Our children's health, and our country's future is being impacted and yet this is acceptable for national security?

How do GMOs make US secure?

These GMO crops are engineered to withstand Roundup (glyphosate) and are heavily sprayed with this chemical which has been shown to break down the blood-brain barrier and allow toxins into the brain ( which is what impacts children with autism). 1 out of 2 of our children will have Autism at the rate we are going in the next 20 years. That is 50%. HALF our kids or grandkids. And thats's Homeland Security?

These GMO foods have promoters which "turn on genes" and could very likely be "turning on" latent cancer or lukemia genes in our children. Cancer is now the number one killer of our American children. And that's Homeland Security?

These GMO crops, fed to pigs have shown an increase in miscarriages, birth defects and the same gut issues which are present in babies who die from SIDS. 46-54% of our baby formula is made of GMO soy. Our American couples now have a 30% failure to conceive rate, the lowest ever in history. And that's Homelend Security?

GMO crops like sugar beets are sprayed with glyphosate which has also been linked to destroying our gut bacteria. Our gut is the only place where Tryptophan can be made in our bodies. Without Tryptophan our bodies cannot produce Seratonin, without Seratinin our bodies cannot regulate blood sugar. Diabetes is the result of unbalanced insulin and now costs our nation helath budget 279 billion. Compared to all of Medicare, which costs us 514 billion, diabetes is taking over our national budget. At this rate we will have no healthcare system money left in 13 years. None. Not for cancer, Alzheimer's, preventative health, pregnancies, none. Diabetes wil have eaten up all the money. And that's Homeland Security?

These GMO crops are mono culture, wiping out our small farmers, over 17,500 farms in the past five years and 690 acres a day in Colorado are lost to mono culture. These crops increase the profit for the top CEOs but not for our working class. They are heavily sprayed with toxic chemicals and heavily controlled by Big Ag and Big Banks. When the pests and weeds develope resistence to the chemical sprays they spray more chemicals, like 2,4-D which was in Agent Orange and caused birth defects in 500,000 babies in Vietnam and killed 400,000 people. And they want to spray that on our American food? That's Homeland Security?

This mother does not feel safe with the staus quo. This is not secure.

I realize that I may be targeted, as many others have, for speaking out seemingly against my government, but I want to be clear that I am speaking up our FOR OUR PEOPLE, for our American children and for all the children all over the world if their countries accept these crops. I do not want the world they are creating where one corporation can turn on or off a country's access to seed and food. I do not want that for children in any country.

I am speaking out FOR OUR FUTURE. Besides being dangerous, these GMO crops DO NOT WORK.


Our farmers have grown crops and fed people around the globe for  thousands of years. We owe our existence to their ingenuity and hard work. Yet in the past 20 years, all of a sudden they and we are being told we, as a human race, "cannot survive withut GMO seed". That's a lie. We can. 

I have FAITH in our FARMERS.

I ask all famers to grow non-GMO seed this coming season and get out of the mono culture GMO trap.

As a farmer, BE as STAND for our own Homeland Security. In fact, YOU ARE our Homeland Security. 

We have faith in you. Please protect our American culture, our families, children and economy.

And if you need a job, be an organic or bio dynamic farmer. Be the one to secure America's future.

Thank you.

The Bold and Mighty Few

31 Million GMO meals are served each day to our children in public schools, paid for by government subsidies.

GMO foreign proteins, and the pesticides and herbicides that are sprayed on these foods (and on 160 other non organic foods' soil) are being fed to our children without safety testing, without labels and without conclusive proof that they are not linked to the skyrocketing rise of our children's health issues. 1 out of 3 of our children now have autism, allergies, asthma or auto immune disorders. 1 out of 2 children who are obese or have diabetes also have one of these additional A's. Scientist, doctors and farmers have linked these GMOs and chemicals to our children's health issues (plus miscarriage, infertility and birth defects)  in rats, pigs and most likely in humans in studies and papers ( see our blog for Samsel interviews or "Proof of GMO Harm" article).

What are we going to do about this?

A small but mighty band said ..."We are going to take on the food in the California schools. WE are going to do something about this."  Three MAA supporters went to the California School Nutrition Conference, where 1000 food directors and school officials go to decide which food will be served to our children next year. Three people said NOW is the time for our food directors to find out about GMOs and the possible health impact on our children. This is their story.


"It was beautiful weather in Palm Springs. Driving out there, it was raining, hard at times, all through Moreno Valley, Beaumont, and Banning. And I was thinking this was not a good sign. But once I got to Cabazon, the sky cleared, and it was GORGEOUS!!!!!

It was fun gathering at the Forever Marilyn statue. Not to be missed if you get out to Palm Springs (it's there only temporarily I was told). We were a band of THREE for today - small but mighty (Mike H., Don David Y., and me). We took photos with our "Moms Across America" banner (hand-painted by Sharon K.) in front of the Marilyn Monroe statue.


Then we headed over to the convention center and we handed out flyers, and put them under windshield wipers for cars on the public street.  Standing on the corner of a parking lot across the street from the convention center, we handed a lot of flyers directly to people. A few even stopped to chat and ask questions. 

One of the vendors I talked to told me this convention will be in Sacramento next year (not so handily close). We need to look at getting a booth, and maybe offering to be speakers for a panel explaining GMO foods.

I met Kevin Stong of "Tofu Yu". He told me he was one of only 5 vendors there with non-GMO foods. He sources non-GMO soy for his tofu. If you'd like to connect with him, his email is: [email protected] and the website is www.tofuyu.com

Another vendor I talked to also provides to Whole Foods. They are working on becoming non-GMO (didn't get their business name, sorry).

Mike took the flyers we had left over (a stack of about 3 inches high) and was going to return tomorrow morning to finish handing them out.

Thanks to Mike and Don David for their help today. Overall, I think we did some good (hopefully some people will actually read the flyers). And I got in a good walk in gorgeous weather. Afterwards, Mike and I ate lunch at Palm Green Cafe, the only organic restaurant (according to Mike) in Palm Springs. Very good food, and quite reasonable. I really enjoyed the lavender lemonade and salmon tacos I had.



These three wonderful people reached  THE 1000 people who decide the food in our schools with clear GMO info and Mom testimonials how their kids got better when they got off GMOs. This is huge. We will never know the results or reach of their generosity and commitment. We will never know which children will be impacted and how many people will begin to reconsider not only the food they serve their own families, but in the cafeteria to hundreds as well. We will never know if this will be the catalyst for change or just one more step in the direction for change down the road.

But we DO know that there are caring, generous people out there who will drive through rain, stand for hours and reach out to complete strangers because they care about health and freedom in America. This moves me to tears. I can't thank you enough Christine, Mike and Don.

Take a look at the book "David and Goliath" by Malcolm Gladwell. There are advantages to being the few, the "small" or the "disadvantaged." In this case, the advantage is that we can reach many with only a few. And the benefit is that we connect with amazingly kind and commited people. Our faith is renewed in America and we make a difference with uncountable thousands. All because we care.

I know we "lost" WA last week. But I say our movement is winning.



P.S. We will be acknowledging the WIN by Kauai in another blog- who's City Council overturned the Veto by their nincompoop Mayor and passed the GMO/Pesticide bill for their island. YES!!!!! Another great win by a small group of people with a mighty love for their people. Thank you ALL.

P.P.S PLEASE look up the School Nutrition Conferences in YOUR state today and get your flyers to pass out from www.momsacrossamerica.com/products. You can download or purchase ( probably cheaper because we print large quantities) We have a new one just for schools.
