Food+Family+Health

Three overseas experts talk about GM food and health. In 2015 Madge will host a tour by the following three speakers.  Register your interest in the 2015 tour here.

Madge hosts tour of experts from the US and UK to speak on going GM free

Zen Honeycutt, Founder of Moms Across America and mother of three boys who all have allergies that have improved by going GM-Free. Zen Honeycutt’s, group MAA tested breastmilk and found it was contaminated with the weedkiller Roundup. The highest level of Roundup was 1600 times greater than allowed in drinking water in Europe. MAA is working with thousands of mothers who have seen their sick family members recover after GM foods are removed from their diets.

Dr Michelle Perro, Pediatrician in Marin County, Ca. In her 30 years as a paediatrician, she has seen children’s health decline dramatically. Over half of US children are now diagnosed with a chronic disorder. In her holistic practice she has seen significant improvements after removing GM foods and pesticides from patients’ diets.

Dr Michael Antoniou, Head of the Nuclear Biology Group at King’s College London School of Medicine, Guy’s Hospital, researches human gene and cell therapy. He is concerned that the weedkiller Round Up (Glyphosate), currently used on ‘herbicide resistant’ GM crops, is more harmful to our health than previously thought.

US Moms Report:

Allergies are up 400% in our children. Asthma affects 1 in 8. Autism has increased 1500% over the last 20 years. Twenty three and a half million Americans are now suffering with auto-immune diseases. Diabetes in teens has quadrupled in ten years. Colitis in children has tripled and Crohn's disease is up 79% in ten years. Cancer is the number one killer of children in America today.

Dr Michelle Perro:

The health of children in America is changing. One out of two children currently have some form of chronic illness. As a physician what I do all day is treat children's intestinal issues, these gut issues are connected to the demise in children's health.

Six months ago Mom Across America told the EPA that we found Glyphosate in our breast milk at shocking levels. This chemical is a chelator (vitamin and mineral deficiency), an antibiotic (destroys gut bacteria and can weaken immune system) and an endocrine disruptor (birth defects and miscarriage). It is also recorded by the EPA to cause liver and kidney damage. It has been linked to Hodgkins Lymphoma and to an increase of cancer. And the EPA has still not acted to protect our children and citizens. Call them today and say  "It has been SIX MONTHS since you found out there is glyphosate in breast milk, WHAT are YOU doing about this? How are you protecting us?"
