We are sure you have heard of the baby formula distribution problems, which have caused a shortage in many areas around the country. Thousands of moms are frustrated with the lack of coordination and foresight our government had displayed regarding this issue. It is infuriating that over government is prioritizing sending money overseas for war efforts when thousands of parents are struggling to feed their babies right here in America! Arrgh!
You can expect that mothers will not just get frustrated however- they take action. Emily Swanson in Texas founded a formula match-up Facebook group called Nationwide Formula Search and moms are helping each other. Mothers are posting photos of where the formula is available and even buying and sending it to other mothers. How generous and kind! How inspiring! We applaud all the mothers on formula Facebook search groups and encourage you to help out where you can too.
We applaud the creators of these groups and are proud that women are supporting other women across the nation! THANK YOU
The people who work in the school system are committed to supporting children to learn and grow up to be responsible, productive members of society. When we parents learn that our children are being exposed to harmful radiation levels at school, which can lead to learning issues, depression, and suicide, it is a human response to be upset, assume the worst, and be angry at the school staff, Principal, or Technology director.
However, in most cases, these staff members simply have no idea that the classroom cellphones, laptops, iPads, and routers could be harmful. The people who have installed wifi in businesses, residences, and schools are often not aware either.
Allan Brennan became Ireland's 7th Certified Wireless Professional and founded Wi-Fi Projects Ltd. In 2004 the company became Ireland's 1st Certified Wireless Network Provider. He was awarded 'Fellow of the Irish Computer Society' for his contribution and promotion of the Irish Wireless Industry. During his career in the wireless industry, he was not aware or informed about known non-thermal exposure health risks and microwave hearing. You can watch a video of his experience here.
He sends this statement specifically to share with your school staff:
“As someone who thoroughly believed in the benefits and capabilities of wireless technology, I was completely unaware that intense WiFi exposure could cause adverse health effects in children (headaches, earaches, sore eyes/stomach, nose bleeds, skin rash, brain fog, depression and more) and did not know children had been identified as a 'high-risk group' in 2011. Schools should use wired networks to protect our children's best interests, not WiFi.
If a school uses WiFi, the least they can do is adhere to the precautionary and As Low As Reasonably Achievable (ALARA) principles - for example - Turn on WiFi when needed and turn it off when finished.”
For most staff members, this information is new, and they need our support to understand why and what they can do.
We have partnered with organizations to share their information to support you in doing so. In our own experience, with our own children's school staff, we know bringing this information can make a huge difference. As long as we are calm, professional, and approach them in partnership, we can work together to keep our children safe.Read more
This week, The Atlantic posted an article about the four forces propelling the rising rates of depression in teens. As a mother of a teen boy who recently shared that he was feeling depressed and whose grades dropped in his favorite AP and Honors classes from A’s to a D and an F for no apparent reason during peak college consideration time, I was compelled to read the article.
The article by Derek Thompson stated:
The United States is experiencing an extreme teenage mental-health crisis. According to a new CDC study, from 2009 to 2021, the share of American high-school students who say they feel “persistent feelings of sadness or hopelessness” rose from 26 percent to 44 percent. This is the highest level of teenage sadness ever recorded.

As Mother’s Day approaches, sons, daughters, and husbands wonder what mom wants. Food manufacturers, product developers, and major corporations who sell millions of products around this time are wondering the same. As the director of Moms Across America, I’ve interacted with thousands of mothers over the past ten years. I’ve come up with a top ten list of what moms want for Mother’s Day. You can buy some of them on a shelf. Most you cannot. But manufacturers who wish to sell many products for mothers may want to take heed and ask themselves if their products embody these values.Read more

Hershey’s Chocolate Found to have 4X Higher Levels of Glyphosate than YouTuber, MrBeast’s Chocolate
Two months ago, the second most popular YouTube creator in America, a 23-year-old known as MrBeast, launched a line of chocolates with a Willy Wonka-style golden ticket in the wrapper. The lucky ticket holder will win one million dollars. After ten years of making videos, MrBeast has close to 100 million followers. His fans are primary teens and early twenty-something who flock to his channel to see his latest antics, primarily consisting of giving away money and challenging himself and his fans. He is a humorous young man with what many teens call “a good heart,” doing things like funding the planting of trees, paying people’s rent, and giving money and cars away. His choice to make two out of four of the ingredients for his chocolates organic was a welcome surprise that we at Moms Across America applaud. Sixteen-year-old Bodee Honeycutt brought this line of chocolate to our attention, saying, “We should test MrBeast's chocolate for glyphosate to show that using organic ingredients is better.”Read more

So much is happening that sometimes we don’t take the time to step back and see the big picture. Let's take a moment to look at the news over the past few weeks. We can see a significant shift in perspective: Big Ag and Big Pharma are being exposed for corrupt behavior, and people worldwide, including more and more media, are calling them out.
People have had enough. Exposure to this corruption is making a difference.
We suspect toxic GMO agrochemical farming is killing our babies. Will you help us to hold mega corporations accountable?
This week, the FDA announced that they advise consumers not to use Abbot Baby Formula brands Similac, Alimentum, and EleCare powdered formulas due to a connection to 5 recorded hospitalizations and two deaths after consuming these formulas. The babies developed Cronobacter sakazakii and Salmonella Newport infections, leading to their hospitalizations and/or deaths.
The FDA has not taken the responsibility of ordering a recall. They continue to allow this product to be sold.
If you are giving your baby formula or know someone who is, we ask you to look at the container immediately.
On February 22, 2022, in Asheville, NC, a Civil Services Board Grievance Hearing was held regarding the firing of five city employees, including sanitation, Parks and Rec workers, police, and a firefighter, for not complying with the human resource policy of providing proof of vaccination or submitting to weekly testing. Testing is required at the employee's expense, on their own time. Because the five employees freely admitted that they did not comply with the policy, the City Attorney, John Maddux, argued in the hearing that the case should be dismissed. However, to provide an overabundance of caution, he brought two witnesses to testify about the policy and justification for the firings.
The first witness was Stacie Saunders, the Buncombe County Department of Public Health director. After giving her background, which was not that of a doctor but a public health expert, she quoted pharmaceutical talking points. She extolled the virtues of vaccination as "one of the greatest human achievements." She invoked fear about COVID by stating that "since the beginning of COVID, there have been 4.4 million hospitalizations." Not clarifying, however, if those hospitalizations were from or with COVID.Read more
