Glyphosate, the active ingredient in Monsanto’s weedkiller RoundUp and hundreds of other herbicides, has been found in 5 childhood vaccines.
Food Integrity Now spoke with Zen Honeycutt, the Founder and Director of Moms Across America about the test results. (Interview here) Moms Across America received the preliminary screening results from Microbe Inotech Laboratories Inc. of St. Louis, Missouri, which showed:
- MMR II (Merk) vaccine had 2.671 parts per billion (ppb) of glyphosate
- DTap Adacel (Sanofi Pasteur) vaccine had 0.123 ppb of glyphosate
- Influenza Fluvirin (Novaris) 0.331 ppb of glyphosate
- HepB Energix-B (Glaxo Smith Kline) 0.325 ppb of glyphosate
- Pneumonoccal Vax Polyvalent Pneumovax 23 (Merk) had 0.107 ppb of glyphosate
“The MMR II vaccine had levels up to 25 times higher than the other vaccines. Following our test, additional independent tests have confirmed these findings at or above the same levels.”
Moms Across America wanted to test the vaccines because many vaccines could be made of genetically modified ingredients (GMOs). Over 80% of GMOs are made to withstand glyphosate-based herbicides. Some of the ingredients in the vaccines include eggs and gelatin which is derived from the ligaments of pigs which are fed heavy doses of glyphosate in their GMO feed. Gelatin comes from collagen which has lots of glycine. Livestock feed is allowed to have up to 400 PPM [parts per million] of glyphosate residues by the EPA, thousands of times higher than has been shown to cause harm in numerous studies.
Honeycutt further stated:
French scientist and glyphosate expert Gilles-Eric Séralini has shown in his research that glyphosate is never used alone. It is always used with adjuvants (co-formulants/other chemicals) and he has found those adjuvants to make Roundup 1,000 times more toxic. The detection of glyphosate in vaccines with this methodology would indicate the presence of other co-formulants which are also toxic.
Dr. Toni Bark, founder and medical director of the Center for Disease Prevention and Reversal had this to say after reviewing the test results:
“I am deeply concerned about injecting glyphosate, a known pesticide, directly into children. Neither Roundup nor glyphosate has been tested for safety as an injectable. Injection is a very different route of entry than oral route. Injected toxins, even in minute doses can have profound effects on the organs and the different systems of the body. In addition, injecting a chemical along with an adjuvant or live virus, can induce severe allergic reactions to that substance as vaccines induce the immune system to create antibodies to whatever is included in the vaccine. Since glyphosate is heavily used in corn, soy, wheat, cotton and other commodities, we can expect to see more severe food allergies in the vaccine recipients. In addition, chemicals in ultra low doses, can have powerful effects on physiology behaving almost as hormones, stimulating or suppressing physiological receptors.”
Moms Across America and many other organizations are deeply concerned about this contamination and on August 31, they sent a letter to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, Center for Disease Control and Prevention, EPA, National Institutes of Health, California Department of Health and Sen. Barbara Boxer requesting that they make it a priority to test vaccines for glyphosate, recall contaminated vaccines and the EPA revoke the license of glyphosate to prevent further contamination.
Moms Across America is coordinating events for Monday, Oct 3, which is Child Health Day, for organizations and individuals to come together to raise awareness about the chemical poisoning of our children and to bring awareness to our public officials, health departments and even our city councils. To find out more about what you can do to join in on October 3 to raise awareness, there is a facebook page you can join to find here. If you would like more information or want to print out copies of the results of the testing to take to your doctor or other health organizations, go to http://www.momsacrossamerica.org
