Would You Feed Your Children – CANCER?

Loves,

I received this from my friends at BornToGrow.com and it’s only right to share it with you… because I LOVE you! Q!

On March 19, 2015, glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup (weed killer), was declared a probable carcinogen by the International Agency for Research on Cancer which is the research arm of the World Health Organization.

This deceleration is especially important to anyone who eats (especially in the United States) because 85 percent of the genetically engineered (GE) crops grown today have been engineered to be resistant to massive spraying of Roundup.

Because of this, hundreds of millions of pounds of Roundup have been used to spray these GE crops (GMO). There wouldn’t be nearly the same amount used if the crops weren’t genetically modified.

I’ll be sharing more about glyphosate and GMO’s in a webinar tonight with my Dad.

So, if you’re interested in finding out more and how it relates to our gardens then click here to register… (Oops! Sorry we missed it! 🙁 )

It’s simply another link in the GMO chain that raises caution flags.

What are you eating? Do you really know where it’s coming from? Are you sure?

I mean… believe it or not, glyphosate is being found everywhere including in rain and air samples, people’s urine, blood, and even in mother’s breast milk…

And listen real quick to this neat story (good news 🙂 that happened last year.

It’s about how leaders from Mom’s Across America ended up getting a hearing with leaders of the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) – asking them to recall Roundup.

So at first they tried to get a hearing with the leaders of the EPA but they weren’t getting very far. Their concern was specifically glyphosate (the active ingredient in Roundup which is used heavily on GMO crops).Well… they were frankly being ignored until they called in the troops…That’s when around 10,000 moms across America started ringing the phones of the EPA off the hook. It happened over a period of three days…
And it got their attention.

 

They listened (no pun intended).

Here’s an excerpt from a Huffington Post article documenting their experience…

“A week later, five Moms Across America leaders were sitting around a boardroom table with nine EPA employees who have the power to recall Roundup. The moms brought lawyers, scientists and advocates from Organic Consumers Association, Natural Resources Defense Council, Consumers Union, Beyond Pesticides and the Truth-in-Labeling Coalition as backup.”

“What was supposed to be a one-hour meeting turned into a two-hour meeting. The EPA’s Dana Vogel, director of the Health Effects Division in the Office of Pesticide Programs, and other EPA staff stayed glued to their seats as one mother after another shared heart-wrenching stories of their experiences parenting children with life-threatening allergies, severe gastrointestinal problems, mysterious autism-spectrum disorders, and major nutritional deficiencies.”

“The common thread in those stories? Exposure to glyphosate, the key ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup.”

And it all brings us back to the garden. Do you know where your food is coming from?

Why not grow your own?

Until next time,

I titled this post ‘Would you knowingly feed your children CANCER?” because the company who manufactures RoundUp is also the industry leader in GMO foods (Genetically Modified Organisms). GMO’s are NOT food. They look like food, taste like food, smell like food, but they are NOT!

And as the letter above, the supportive links and an enormous network of online organizations have scientifically proven, they are extremely harmful not only to our bodies, but they are detrimental to our long term food supply.

GMO’s have been linked not only to cancer but to fibroids, infertility and a ridiculously long list of ailments. Their claim to fame is that they are saving World Hunger. Sadly, farmers worldwide are taking their own lives as a result of believing this lie and losing their livelihoods.

I say it’s time we all learn to GROW OUR OWN FOOD! Who’s with me?
