Have you seen the increased number of reports about the important role of Vitamin D in avoiding severe COVID symptoms?
Do you wonder why some people die from COVID and others have almost no symptoms or very mild symptoms?
We wanted to know too...
We already know that glyphosate, one of our major focuses for the past 8 years, is a chelator and can grab onto and make unavailable the vital nutrients of any living thing it touches. We suspected glyphosate, made by Bayer, is a major factor in why we humans are widely Vitamin D deficient in the first place. So we asked a glyphosate expert about the role of this most widely used herbicide in the world. Glyphosate has been found on thousands of food samples, breast milk, urine, rain, and drinking water. Could glyphosate be playing a role in the deficiency of Vitamin D and therefore contributing to death around the world from COVID?Lee mas
In a "Unsafe on Any Plate" Report, Food Democracy Now and The Detox Project tested 28 cereal and snack products and found moderate to high levels of glyphosate in many samples. Detectability was 5 ppb. Levels of 1 ppb have been shown to cause liver damage in animal studies. Levels as high as 1,125.3 ppb was found in Cheerios. Cheerios is made of wheat, as many snacks and cereals are, and wheat has been commonly sprayed with glyphosate as a drying agent. Since Moms Across Americas initiation of glyphosate testing, and other tests results like the following, country's such as Canada, France, Belgium, Germany and 30 others have banned or restricted the use of glyphosate use in agriculture or landscaping.
The "Unsafe on Any Plate" Report states:
A 2014 study found that high levels of glyphosate exposure in animals and humans were correlated with an increase in chronic illness. The authors discovered that: “Glyphosate residues in urine were grouped according to the human health status. Chronically ill humans had significantly higher glyphosate residues in urine than healthy humans.”
Most concerning is that the USA allows much higher amounts than Europe...showing a clear discrepancy in the safety standards of our regulatory agencies.
To the Honorable Court Judge William Shubb:
We are writing to express our objection to your recent ruling to prevent cancer warnings on Roundup and glyphosate weed killer. We find your ruling to be unfounded based on available science, dangerous, and shameful to the justice system. Justice was not served and we, as mothers, are outraged that the safety of our families will continue to be compromised. We have children, fathers, mothers and friends who suffer daily from using glyphosate-based herbicides. We have lost loved ones that will never see their grandchildren graduate from high school, will never see them marry, because of the lack of warning that glyphosate herbicides can cause cancer.Lee mas
A new study has shown that maternal exposure to high levels of Monsanto/Bayer's glyphosate herbicides caused autism-like symptoms in young male rats. Animal studies are considered highly relevant to the National Institute for Health and the only basis for approval by the EPA.
The study, jointly conducted by 16 scientists from University of Chiba, Japan and University of California, Davis is groundbreaking as it clearly shows the pathway of how glyphosate causes autism through alterations of the gut microbiota and an increase of soluble epoxide hydrolase (sEH) enzyme in the brain. When an sEH enzyme inhibitor was administered orally to the pregnant and lactating mother rats, the autism-like symptoms were prevented in the offspring.
We have an autism epidemic in America.
Glyphosate is used widely in landscaping and farming, contaminating most of our conventional food, many personal products and our environment. It has been detected in our food such as wheat, beans, soy, eggs, dairy, wine, beer and feminine sanitary products. We are being exposed so often, and so much, that even a small amount could add up to a high level in a pregnant mother or infant.
Glyphosate has even been detected in childhood vaccines including the flu shot given to pregnant women.
This contamination is unacceptable and the predictable future, if we continue exposing pregnant women and children to glyphosate, is unsustainable for our country. This is an urgent situation. The development of the COVID-19 vaccine is being rushed and contamination and safety testing could be overlooked. No COVID-19 or any other vaccine should be administered to anyone, especially pregnant women and vulnerable infants or children without screening for glyphosate or other toxin contamination.
Glyphosate has been detected in thousands of food samples and even vaccines, including the flu shot given to pregnant women. There are no studies that we know of to show the impact of glyphosate, even at very small amounts, injected directly into the bloodstream of a pregnant woman. The widespread contamination of glyphosate and exposure through many sources is likely accumulating to high levels of glyphosate in today’s pregnant women and is a major contributing factor to the skyrocketing numbers of children with autism.
How is glyphosate getting into vaccines? Glyphosate is the most widely used herbicide in the world and, in addition to being used in landscaping in our community parks and streets, it is sprayed directly on GMO food crops and on non-organic food crops as a drying agent. It does not wash, dry or cook off and is absorbed. Animals such as pigs, chickens and cows that eat glyphosate sprayed grains have been shown to have glyphosate in their tendons and bone marrow. Pig tendons are made into gelatin, which is a stabilizing agent in vaccines. Bovine (cow) serum and chicken/egg cells are also used in vaccines. Other GMO ingredients in vaccines, such as soy or corn, and ingredients derived from glyphosate-sprayed crops such as sugar (fructose) could also be the mechanism for contamination. Scientists suspect the contamination is happening through these pathways.
Organizations Mamás en toda América y Informed Consent Action Network (ICAN) have both asked the FDA and CDC to test for glyphosate in vaccines and to ensure safety. Our concern is that not only is glyphosate impacting the gut as shown in this study, but that it is breaking down the blood brain barrier and allowing toxins such as aluminum (also in vaccines at high levels) into the brain, contributing to autism and Alzheimer’s. These regulatory agencies responded with a refusal to take the test results seriously and have not addressed this issue. In addition, Moms Across America and ICAN asked for evidence from the FDA of safety studies conducted showing the flu shot is safe for pregnant women. Their response was that they did not have any such studies available.
The question is, considering this new autism study and evidence of glyphosate in vaccines, will the FDA take the safety of vaccines seriously now?
Will the FDA and vaccine manufacturers test the COVID-19 vaccine for glyphosate contamination?
We call upon vaccine manufacturers, vaccine safety regulators - the FDA and CDC, and public health departments to seriously address the safety of vaccines now.
What will be required is for vaccine manufacturers to source ingredients that are not derived from GMOs, animals fed GMO/glyphosate sprayed grains and ingredients that are not sprayed with glyphosate as a drying agent. These ingredients will likely be difficult to source, and requests will need to be made of the agriculture industry to change their practices. It would be essential for the farmers to not substitute glyphosate for glufosinate or dicamba (now banned) , etc...and simply replace one toxin with another. Farmers may insist that they cannot grow crops without these toxic chemicals but that is simply not true. Farmers have been ingenious, and they have been farming for thousands of years without toxins. The BIODYNAMIC and growing regenerative organic food industry is proof that it can be done.
Vaccines contaminated with toxins and glyphosate are one of the major reasons why an increasing number of parents are vaccine hesitant today. If public health officials want to impact vaccine hesitancy, this issue must be addressed.
We ask you to call upon Dr. Fauci, the FDA, CDC and vaccine manufacturers to test the COVID-19 vaccines for glyphosate and ensure all vaccines are toxin free.

New Study Shows Maternal Exposure to Glyphosate Causes Autism Symptoms in Young
Por Zen Honeycutt, Mamás en todo Estados Unidos
The evidence continues to stack up against Roundup weedkiller.
This time a new study from UC Davis Comprehensive Cancer Center and Chiba University Center for Forensic Mental Health, Chiba, Japan, found that maternal exposure to high levels of glyphosate herbicide produced by Bayer/Monsanto, caused autism symptoms in young male rats.
The effects of glyphosate herbicide clearly impacted the gut microbiota, and showed that enzyme activity, after glyphosate exposure, was higher in certain parts of the organs. “Soluble epoxide hydrolase (sEH) in the brain of offspring after maternal glyphosate herbicide exposure was higher than controls.” Prevention was shown to be possible, however. Treating orally with an sEH inhibitor for the production of those enzymes from pregnancy to weaning prevented the onset of the autism-like behaviors after maternal exposure, showing a significant finding of causation and prevention.
Previous animal studies have also shown a disturbance of the gut bacteria with glyphosate herbicide exposure. The disturbance of the gut microbiota is significant and has been repeatedly connected with behavioral and learning disabilities in animals and humans.
The findings in this study and in previous medical literature mirror current social and health conditions among many American households.
In the United States, one out of six children has a learning disability, and one out of five children is living with a mental illness. It is predicted that by 2025, half of all children will be diagnosed with autism if we continue at the current rate.
These alarming trends correlate with the increased use of glyphosate in agriculture. Over 70 percent of the glyphosate that has ever been used (3.5 billion pounds) has been used in the past ten years. A large portion of that use was as a drying agent on wheat, peas, beans, and grains used in animal feed. Glyphosate does not wash, dry, or cook-off and has been found in thousands of foods, animal feed, and beverage samples, air and water.
While the new study includes significantly higher levels of exposure than normal dietary, environmental, or occupational exposure, the results indicate that increased glyphosate herbicide exposure is cause for concern.
In today’s society where a mother can be exposed to over 2400 ppb of glyphosate herbicide residue in a day’s consumption of food, and glyphosate can also be found in breastmilk, water, soil, and vaccines, it’s hard to determine how exactly how much of the chemical is being absorbed by the body.
In fact, food testing has shown 1000 ppb of glyphosate in wheat, garbanzo beans and other foods made of grain. Glyphosate levels in eggs have exceeded FDA levels of 1.67 ppb. Glyphosate has also been found in peas, beans, bagels, cereal, oatmeal, wine, beer, and sanitary products.
Vaccines are also a likely source of glyphosate exposure with residue findings between 2.67-3.4 ppb in one MMR vaccine. It is believed that glyphosate is contaminating vaccines through gelatin (an ingredient in vaccines), which is made from the tendons of pigs that have consumed glyphosate sprayed grains. In fact, direct injection of a “low” level of glyphosate into the bloodstream could have the same effect as a “high” level of glyphosate exposure through occupational or environmental exposure -- there simply aren’t enough safety studies to determine one way or the other, therefore, precautionary measures are crucial.
Glyphosate has also been shown to break down the blood brain barrier, allowing toxins, like aluminum, into the brain. Aluminum, an ingredient in many vaccines, has been found at higher levels in the brains of children with autism and Alzheimer patients.
While flu shots are increasingly promoted to pregnant women, it is abundantly clear, even admitted by the FDA, that the that safety and efficacy studies of vaccines in pregnant women are lacking. In researching this topic, my colleagues and I at Moms Across America requested through the Freedom of Information Act, any studies showing the safety of administering a flu vaccine to pregnant women. The FDA responded that there are no studies available.
Considering today’s pandemic, one must wonder — will there be testing on the new COVID-19 vaccine to ensure it is not contaminated with glyphosate? Will it be promoted to pregnant women without safety testing?
Depending on manufacturers to ensure safety is not enough. Bayer/Monsanto claimed that glyphosate passes harmlessly through the body but previous studies have found glyphosate residue detected in the tissue, bone marrow and tendons of animals that consumed glyphosate sprayed grain feed. This new study adds to the growing skepticism of the harmlessness of this prevalent herbicide and calls for immediate government action to ban the use of the dangerous chemical and/or manufacturers, farmers gardeners and landscapers to discontinue its use.
Until then, avoiding vaccination before or while pregnant, eating organic and gardening organically will support lower levels of exposure. Fermented foods such as sauerkraut, kombucha and apple cider vinegar have shown to contain a bacterium called acetobacter, which has, in soil, shown to break apart glyphosate into non-toxic components. Consumption of these items on a daily basis could help.
Ultimately, one thing is clear, the sale, use, and contamination by glyphosate herbicides should no longer be tolerated. It is unacceptable for the United States to allow the continued use of a chemical herbicide that is a major contributing factor of the rise of autism - projected to be one out of two children in 15 years. The future of our country is at stake and glyphosate is something we can no longer afford to ignore.

Also, listen to UNSTOPPABLE, episode 52 which addresses this issue.
The EPA's finding that glyphosate exposure does not cause any health risks is a blatant act of reckless endangerment to public health. Americans should be outraged, not just because our EPA is not protecting us, but because our government is allowing the collapse of democracy by pandering to corporate greed.
- The EPA assessed risks to humans from exposure to glyphosate from all registered uses and all routes of exposure and did not identify any risks of concern, including cancer.
- The EPA did not review any cumulative health impacts of glyphosate.
- The EPA did reduce the list of crop types with allowable levels of glyphosate residues from 160 to 15, however the crops removed likely did not utilize glyphosate, and the list is not complete.
- The EPA still has not responded to the EWG et al petition about discontinuing the use of glyphosate on oats and wheat as a desiccant or made a determination on residue levels.
- The EPA will do further assessments on the impact of glyphosate on bees and endangered species due to the Center for Biological Diversity mitigation.
- The EPA is limiting the amount of glyphosate used per acre, by category of use, in order to prevent further weed resistance.
- The EPA is requiring additional labeling for aquatic use which warns of fish kill from the lack of oxygen from dead water vegetation (note: not from glyphosate).
- A final decision will be made after a decision about the desiccation of wheat and oats, endangered species review, and an assessment of endocrine disruption. Decisions could be in 2020 for some and agosto 2021 for others.

Informe de resultados de la prueba de glifosato en hummus
Mamás en toda América
agosto 31, 2018
agosto 31, 2018 - Hummus es la merienda favorita para la mayoría de las personas que se consideran saludables. Aparentemente, la marca de hummus ahora se ha vuelto mucho más importante. Hoy, Moms Across America lanzó el resultados de pruebas de 10 muestras de hummus de 8 marcas mostrando niveles preocupantes de residuos de glifosato. Todas menos 1 de las muestras dieron positivo para niveles cuantificables. El glifosato se encuentra en Roundup, un herbicida popular de Monsanto, y se rocía comúnmente sobre garbanzos como agente de secado antes de la cosecha. El glifosato químico ha aparecido en numerosos titulares en las últimas dos semanas debido al veredicto en el juicio de Johnson v Monsanto. Johnson era un aplicador de pesticidas de la escuela y el jurado del gigante químico Monsanto le otorgó 289.2 millones de dólares por "malicia y opresión" u ocultar el hecho de que sabían que su herbicida de glifosato podría causar cáncer. Las marcas de hummus que dieron positivo para residuos de glifosato fueron Kirkland Signature, Sabra, Cedar's, Simply Balanced, Trader Joe's, Sadaf y Hope. El hummus orgánico de Lilly fue la única marca que tuvo un resultado no cuantificable para el glifosato.
Zen Honeycutt, Director Ejecutivo Fundador de Moms Across America, declaró: “Los residuos de glifosato en el hummus no son sorprendentes, debido a la práctica agrícola de rociar garbanzos antes de la cosecha con glifosato como agente de secado, pero estos resultados son terriblemente inquietantes. La industria agrícola ha sabido desde 2015 que la Agencia Internacional para la Investigación del Cáncer (IARC) clasificó el glifosato como probable carcinógeno . Tenían tiempo suficiente para descontinuar la práctica de rociar este herbicida en sus cultivos. Esperamos ahora, con estos resultados y el veredicto de la demanda de Johnson v Monsanto, que la EPA revoque la licencia de glifosato y los agricultores dejen de usar productos químicos nocivos ".
El representante de Lilly's Hummus declaró que obtienen sus garbanzos de granjeros orgánicos en California. Cuando se les preguntó acerca de la ausencia de glifosato en sus productos, dijeron, con respecto a sus proveedores, “Realizan comprobaciones de campo al azar en cultivos y reconocen al glifosato como uno de los peores herbicidas. Estamos muy contentos de producir un producto nutritivo seguro para individuos y familias sin esta sustancia ".
La revisión de la Prop. 65 de la EPA de CA hace que las empresas se vuelvan específicas sobre los químicos cancerígenos
agosto 30 , 2018 - Misión Viejo. Moms Across America aplaude la decisión de la Oficina de Evaluación de Riesgos para la Salud Ambiental (OEHHA) de la Agencia de Protección Ambiental de California (CA EPA). Hoy es el día en que los cambios tan esperados entran en vigencia para las empresas, los fabricantes y las partes responsables en la cadena de suministro de exponer al público a productos químicos nocivos. A partir de este día, cualquier persona que exponga al público a sustancias químicas que se sabe que causan cáncer o daños reproductivos en California debe tener las advertencias establecidas de la siguiente manera o enfrentar una multa de $ 2,500 por día, por violación.
Zen Honeycutt, de Mom Across America, declaró: “Estamos encantados de que las empresas ahora tengan que indicar específicamente, por nombre, a qué producto químico están expuestas. El público tiene derecho a saber. Sin embargo, estamos indignados de que el glifosato, que está en la lista de Prop 65 y se rocía en nuestros alimentos y alrededor de nuestras escuelas y parques, no se incluirá porque Monsanto demandó a la EPA de California para detener El etiquetado. Esto es una injusticia para el público estadounidense que debe corregirse de inmediato ”. Los herbicidas de glifosato fueron objeto de una demanda reciente en la que el demandante Dwayne Lee Johnson recibió 289.2 millones de dólares de Monsanto por la causa de su linfoma no Hodgkin, a la que estuvo expuesto mientras usaba equipo de protección como aplicador de pesticidas en la escuela
De acuerdo con 30 años de la política de la EPA, normalmente el glifosato, que se incluyó en la lista de Prop 65 en 2017, se incluiría en este reglamento. Todos los productos, como Roundup que se venden en Home Depot, tendrían que llevar esta advertencia hoy. Todos los aplicadores de pesticidas necesitarían ser informados de que estaban usando productos que causan cáncer, y todos los agricultores verían etiquetas de advertencia en sus compras a granel de herbicidas de glifosato que rocían en nuestros cultivos alimentarios. Sin embargo, Monsanto demandó a la EPA de California y el juez les otorgó una orden judicial temporal que detuvo el etiquetado de los herbicidas de glifosato. Su razonamiento fue que Monsanto tenía derecho a la "libertad de expresión", lo que significa que ellos y los otros clientes en la demanda, como la Asociación de Productores de Trigo, tenían derecho a no hablar sobre si sus productos o ingredientes alimenticios contenían un probable carcinógeno. No importa que también tengan el libre albedrío para fabricar o usar una sustancia química que expone al público sin saberlo a un carcinógeno.Lee mas
