Moms Want Monsanto To Stop Using A Herbicide That’s Made Its Way Into Breast Milk

A group of mothers is going after the biotech corporation Monsanto, pressuring the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to crack down on the company’s controversial herbicide. “Moms Across America” says that Monsanto’s herbicide Roundup should be recalled.

The group points to evidence that glyphosate, the primary ingredient in Roundup, is building up in women’s bodies and is now being detected in breast milk. The chemical has previously been found in drinking water, but its presence in the human body is especially concerning, considering the fact that glyphosate been linked to health issues like neurological disorders, reproductive issues, and birth defects.

Glyphosate, which is now the most popular herbicide in the world, spiked in use in the 1990s after Monsanto genetically engineered crops that can survive being sprayed directly with Roundup. Monsanto executives have previously stated that glyphosate doesn’t accumulate in human bodies, but the new research appears to contradict that claim.

“This is a poison and it’s in our food. And now they’ve found it in breast milk,” Zen Honeycutt, the founder of Moms Across America, explained to Reuters. “Numerous studies show serious harm to mammals. We want this toxic treadmill of chemical cocktails in our food to stop.”

The EPA is currently conducting a standard review of glyphosate. By next year, the agency will decide whether the chemical can continue to be used as it is currently, or whether there needs to be stricter regulation over it. That’s why environmental activists like Moms Across America are taking the opportunity to meet with regulators to express their concerns about Roundup.

Moms Across America is also targeting other government agencies on this issue. The group wants the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to conduct more tests to determine glyphosate’s potential long-term effects on Americans’ health. “It is the responsibility of parents to care for their children and it is the responsibility of the CDC to partner with us to care for our nation,” the mothers write.

This isn’t the only potentially harmful chemical that could pose a threat to women’s health. There’s increasing evidence that environmental toxins can harm women’s ability to have children. Last year, two leading reproductive health groups — the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists and the American Society for Reproductive Medicine — issued a joint statement urging the EPA to limit the chemicals that could have a negative effect on women’s pregnancies.

Nonetheless, Monsanto doesn’t shy away from using its considerable economic power to undermine the policies that would restrict its current business model. The company has deep roots in Washington, and has poured millions of dollars into campaigns to defeat state legislation to regulate genetically engineered groceries.

I don't understand this part. Why would they want to create crops that can survive being sprayed with Roundup and why would that make Roundup any more appealing to consumers? What am I missing?

So that way they can spray all the entire field with round up. The weeds will die but the veggies will sustain. Faster and cheaper. What am I missing?

But those are just the crops that the company specifically created for that purpose. Those are not all crops such as the crops the consumers will be growing. Maybe they are just explaining it wrong.

it looks like a contradiction but its not. Monsanto and Roundup are the same company.  Roundup is simply a product produced by the Monsanto corporation.

they did it to control the worlds food supply.  monsanto lobbied to be able to patent food that is genetically modified (gmo's) once they did that any food  they "create" they now control.   they convinced the public that their products would end world hunger but people didnt realize is that it actually enslaved people because those seeds are like Frankenstein's monster, theyre hard to control, expensive and they ruin the soil for other crops.  the problem with this is that seeds move through the air.  so even if you never used a genetically modified seed and that seed flies onto your field, you are in violation of monsanto corp patent and they can take you crop.  they also limit the strain (variation) of seeds available to the public. 

we as consumers and the president dropped the ball on this one.  most people think gmo's are only about side effects in the food they eat so they dont care but its really about one corporation controlling the entire world's food supply.  that sh*t is scary.
