Moms Across America have an important message to tell the EPA and it was delivered to them on Tuesday! Their message: Glyphosate (RoundUp), a powerful herbicide, antibiotic and mineral chelator, must be recalled immediately because of its risk to human health.
Last Tuesday, Moms Across America and a few other representatives of organizations including, Organic Consumers Association, Consumers Union, Thinking Moms Revolution, The National Resources Defense Council, Truth in Labeling Coalition and Beyond Pesticides were granted a meeting with the EPA Glyphosate Review Board. Glyphosate (RoundUp) is up for review by the EPA this year which only happens every 15 years.
Earlier this year, Moms Across America and Sustainable Pulse got a report funded where scientist evaluated the breast milk from 10 mothers and found extremely high levels of Glyphosate in their breast milk. This report was sent to the EPA with no response. Due to the EPA’s lack of response, Moms Across American took action and conducted a five-day call in campaign to the EPA demanding that Glyphosate be recalled. The EPA agreed to meet with this group only after they were inundated with over 10,000 calls from concerned moms and others about the dangers of Glyphosate.
Zen Honeycutt, Founder of Moms Across America, a grassroots organization to raise awareness and support moms with solutions to eat GMO free, was one of the leaders of this group and spoke with us today about that meeting. She shared some of information that was presented to the EPA and the groups’ demands for immediate action by the EPA to recall Glyphosate. Honeycutt presented the evidence in a concise and professional manner and would not back down when the EPA responded with their list of policies, procedures and protecal. One of the talking points she passionately expressed is that Glyphosate was found to be bioaccumulative, as was evidenced in its presence in human breast milk, and demanded that it be fully recalled until further testing could take place as to its risk to human health. The studies and testimonials were presented to the EPA for further evaluation. The EPA’s response was unsatisfactory at best. One thing you can count on is that this group is not going away and will continue to demand further testing of Glyphosate. The EPA has definitely been put on notice!
