Do you know why your children are chronically ill? Do you know why your children are dying? Is it possible that the toxic buildup from decades of ‘miracle’ chemicals’ could be a cause?
I am bowing to the mothers in the revolution to have our voices heard about the injustices our family’s are enduring due to the poisoning of our environment. Zen Honeycutt – is a Warrior Goddess in my eyes. Last night’s interview was one of the most important you will ever hear.
Zen Honeycutt, founder
Mom’s Across America
Glyphosate Poisoning of our Children
7 pm ET – 4 pm PT
Join Zen Honeycutt, founder of Mom’s Across America and a spokeswoman for millions who are concerned about the poisoning of our children and our environment with the herbicide, Roundup – used in home gardens, and lawns, as well as in public spaces, will join me on Holy Hormones Honey! to discuss the latest conference she attended on the use of this chemical that is causing so much harm to our children.
Moms Across America, now has over 400 leaders and held over 600 events in the first two years is the brainchild of Zen Honeycutt, mother of 3 boys, one of whom had life threatening allergies. That is, until she found out about GMOs and helped her sons to avoid them. Her sons with allergies and autism symptoms that got better when they avoided GMOs and pesticides by eating organic foods.
Passionate about caring for her family, and inspired by Robyn O’Brien’s Ted Talk “Patriotism on a Plate” and Jeffrey Smith’s “Tipping Point Network” concept, Zen created a forum for Moms to reach out & encourage one another. The power of one. It starts a movement. And now look at us, marching in solidarity from Sea to Shining Sea in 172 parades in 2013 in 44 states!
Zen has been seen on CNN, the Dr.Oz show,CSPAN, in the news in Rueter’s, RT.com, Fox News and hundreds more media outlets. She has been a featured speaker at the International GMO conference in Beijing, China, the Heirloom Expo, Health and Freedom Expo, Commonwealth Club and others. Zen is a leadership coach and social media/event planning consultant. She is available for consulting or talks upon request. email@example.com.
In January of 2015- Zen addressed the Monsanto corporation – responsible for the manufacturing of glyphosate – calling them out for the irresponsible and unethical use of this chemical that may be another cause for the rise in chronic illness and autism in our children – both which are at epidemic rates.
Zen is not alone in her concerns… Dr. Stephanie Seneff, a senior scientist at MIT, has also raised the alarm saying that we are facing an autism epidemic that may have dire consequences by the year 2025 – when she estimates that the rise in this neurological disorder will affect 1 in 2 children.
That is only 10 years away. If the rates to continue to escalate at the same space… we will become a nation with neurologically damaged children. We have to wake up before that and alert others.
Dr. Seneff specifically cites the Monsanto herbicide, Roundup, as the culprit for the escalating incidence of autism and other neurological disorders. Roundup, which was introduced in the 1970’s, contains the chemical glyphosate, which is the focal point for Seneff’s concerns. Roundup was originally restricted to use on weeds, as glyphosate kills plants. However, Roundup is now in regular use with crops. With the coming of GMO’s, plants such as soy and corn were bioengineered to tolerate glyphosate, and its use dramatically increased. From 2001 to 2007, glyphosate use doubled, reaching 180 to 185 million pounds in the U.S. alone in 2007. ~Source
Press Release from Moms Across America
Monsanto Shareholder meeting presentation Jan 31, 2015
Organic Consumer’s Association, SumOfUs and Moms Across America held a rally at the Monsanto Headquarters on Jan 30, 2015. Supporters came from St.Louis, CA, Arizona, Illinois, Washington DC, Chicago and beyond.
Inside the meeting:
Zen Honeycutt represented John Harrington of Harrington Investments at yesterday’s meeting to ask for shareholder support for Item No. 5, Shareowner Proxy Access—an essential mechanism for accountability supported by institutional investors and the SEC.
As the founder of Moms Across America she spoke on behalf of millions of mothers, a significant group of long-term stakeholders of Monsanto. Her presentation contained the following:
1 out of 2 children in America today have a chronic illness such as asthma, allergies, autism, autoimmune disease, Crohn’s, diabetes and obesity. (1) All of these conditions and more can be directly linked to GMOs and Glyphosate–to Monsanto’s products.
Zen said to Monsanto, on behalf of struggling parents, STOP POISONING our children! Glyphosate—a patented antibiotic—has been detected in the air, water, food, Fruit Loops (see GMOFreeUSA.com) , our children’s urine, our breast milk, (2) and in feeding tube liquid (3) fed to children with cancer, at levels thousands of times ABOVE what has been shown to destroy GUT BACTERIA—where 70% of the immune system lies. (4)
The Monsanto shareholders MUST know, she said that, without proper gut bacteria the body cannot make Tryptophan, Melatonin or Serotonin which regulates insulin—leading to numerous illnesses including diabetes, a disease which is on course to bankrupt US Healthcare in 13 years. (5)
When the gut bacteria is destroyed, food particles and pathogens escape through the intestines, causing allergies and auto-immune diseases. Allergy ER Visits have increased 265% since GMOs and glyphosate were introduced. (6)
Without healthy gut bacteria and the ability to make serotonin and melatonin, our bodies cannot prevent insomnia, depression, anxiety, and bi-polar disorder. 57.7 million Americans have mental illness today. (7)
Glyphosate is a DNA mutagen and cell disintegrator, allowing toxins into the brain. (8)
Glyphosate is an endocrine disruptor, causing infertility, sterility, miscarriages and birth defects. (10)
She stated that she was submitting hundreds of testimonials from mothers describing what Monsanto products are doing to their children and showing how their children get better when they avoid GMOs and eat organic.
Zen also submitted hundreds of pages of studies and papers today showing how glyphosate impacts the gut brain connection (11), leading to birth defects (12), liver and kidney disease (13), Parkinson’s (14), Non Hodgkin’s Lymphoma (15), Alzheimer’s, Celiac’s, Autism (15) and Cancer (16). According to the current rate of diagnosis we can expect, in 20 years, 50% of our children born will get autism. (17)
Zen said that understands that no one wants to believe this is true, however, she asked, has anyone on the Board read the newest studies and research??
She asked :
“What if the very investments Monsanto’s shareholders are making to BUILD a foundation of security for our children and grandchildren are the same investments which are DESTROYING their future? What if instead of creating health and prosperity, they are causing ECONOMIC RUIN?
What if instead of feeding millions of people with GMOs, Monsanto is in fact hurting generations to come?
We mothers say, STOP IT. STOP IT NOW.
You have an opportunity to make a difference for your families and our country. We ask shareholders to support Shareholder Access Proxy and vote a pediatrician onto this board. We ask Monsanto to have the courage to create a new future for Monsanto and America.
The proxy passed by 53%.
Honeycutt was thankful to Harrington Investments who gave her the opportunity to speak on behalf of mothers every where. She said, “I hope the shareholders where able to understand that I represent, not just angry moms, but moms who are informed citizens. We have the experiences with our children and the science to back us up.” She promises that “Moms will not stop. We will not give up, because the love for our children will never end.”
Moms Across America plans a Moms MeetUp on May 2, 2015 where Moms will meet in their communities and cause a billion dollar shift to organic food. Go to www.momsacrossamerica.com for more information.
