Glyphosate Testing

Help us get more glyphosate tests done nationwide!

Moms Across America is embarking on a new nationwide glyphosate testing project.

For more info: https://yesmaam.nationbuilder.com/donate_for_glyphosate_tests


Here is the info from our winter 2014 project: You can still test yourself, the data is just not a part of a MAA project.

If you DO get yourself tested, please post your first name, city, state and results below in comment section!

GLYPHOSATE is the active chemical ingredient in Roundup, which is sprayed on the soil of 160 non organic food crops and  on GMO food crops genetically engineered to withstand Roundup. They stopped keeping track in 2009 of the millions of pounds that are being sprayed on our food, parks, schools and sidewalks. Last year alone the pesticides  usage increase 26%. Glyphosate is the most widely used pesticide in the year, over 5 billion pounds a year are sprayed on soil and crops around the world, 527 million since the introduction of GMOs in the uSA alone.

Moms all across America have tried to take care for their children by requesting to have their children's urine tested for glyphosate and their doctors have said they cannot do the tests. They have asked labs directly to do the glyphosate tests on urine and they have said no. American Moms have not been able to test their own children or their own urine  for the most widely used chemical pesticide on the planet..until now.

We have found a lab that is willing to test urine and water for glyphosate! 

They are a custom contract laboratory specializing in microbial and biochemical testing. They are offering to MAA supporters  reduced rate tests from $145.00 each down to $110.00 each.  Moms Across America does not receive any financial gain from any transaction connected with this lab what so ever. We simply want Moms to be able to care for their families knowing all the infomation they can.

1. Please go to their glyphosate testing page on their website and click Buy Now!

2. Pay through Pay Pal or credit card- To test both 1 water and 1 urine it will be 110.00 EACH so $220.00 together.

3. Please fill out the form that will come with the kit and return it with your sample to allow Moms Across America to publish the test results without your personal identity. This information will be useful to empower millions to better care for their children and families as well as your own.

 This chart of correlation is of grave concern to Moms. We encourage all Moms who have children with autism, allergies, auto immune disorders, asthma or IBS to get tested.

You may also call the lab directly Microbe Inotech Laboratories, Inc.  (314) 645-2177 x104

 If you share this information, please share the link to this page and not just the lab website, as they will not know where to go or what to do on the lab website. Thank you.  http://www.momsacrossamerica.com/glyphosate_testing

If you get glyphosate testing done please add an X next to the town or neighboring town on this document.

 

If Glyphosate does this to bacteria in a lab, what is it doing to the beneficial gut bacteria in our bodies? The bacteria which makes up our children's immune systems?

    I bought 2 tomatoes from a huge chain store….2 weeks ago….they still have not ripened. I took them outside in sunlight hoping they would ripen…nothing. Now I will not consume them. The skins are tough, and the wildlife, birds and squirrels are rejecting them. That speaks volumes. I will not eat them.

    This is awesome, but I am from Nebraska and find it rare to find people from my area who will get on the bandwagon with me. As this whole state is pretty much agriculture. I do not give up however. I constantly post things on my fb and twitter page, Nebraskan’s Fighting Back Against Cancer (fb) and NebrFightingBack (twitter). As my grandson was diagnosedwith a malignant brain tumor and so are other children here. I think with that high of price for testing, it will be hard to get opeople to test. I try to promote natural treatments for cancer & disease, however, people still do what Drs tell them, chemo, radiation, cut. I am quite open to being the change even if I stand alone.

    i just heard it causes celiac issues, but i will try to get source. for i know how difficult it is to care for one w/diarrhea + vomiting trying to figure out, when yet i know i ended up feeding the bacteria at first, so it is hard. if this is the case then the Wahl information would be good; http://terrywahls.com/way-to-adopt-the-wahls-diet/

    Sorry Carla, I was not fully awake. ELISA uses antibodies (=antigen specific proteins) for the detection of poisons. For each chemical a specific antibody has to be developed. Something the lab in question is good at.

    Carla Roppel, my link is not relevant anymore. I had my doubts about the lab doing the usine tests as not being an analytical chemistry lab. But for using ELISA, which is test using bacteria, they are perfectly qualified. So I withdraw my comment.

    Teresa Thank you for raising this point about the owner having formrly worked at Monsanto, as I am sure others are interested to know about this too. I saw this pointed out on Facebook before the holiday and could not remember where you posed the question to respond, sorry!! Although my source who connected me to the lab (which too quite a bit of time to find a lab willing to do this by the way) wishes to remain anonymous, it is someone many leaders in this movemet know well and love dearly. This person has a great reputation and has known the lab owner for many years and vouched for him personally. This person says it is very difficult if not impossible to find anyone in science or in a lab that has NOT worked for Monsanto, especially in the mid west where this lab is stationed
    The lab owner worked for Monsanto before Roundup was developed so has no ties to that product and has no longer has any loyaties to Monsanto. The person who connected us says simply trusts him.
    Although I would prefer that the lab owner never worked for Monsanto, I simply trust the person who connected us. I also trust that a lab willing to do this is risking quite a bit of scrutiny, as you have seen already, and in my experience, has a committment greater than any fears to the truth. There is a reason the lab owner has his own lab and no longer works for Monsanto.
    Also, they are running a standard test and risk their entire reputation and livliehood if results are ever shown to be skewed.
    I also take the perspective that the lab owner ( who is not running the tests, the technicians are, but he must over see them) , must know what he is doing. Much like you would not ask someone who is not a hacker to find out what hackers are doing… You need someone who knows what they are doing. Having had worked at Monsanto could mean that he knows what he is doing…but I tend to think that since he has a lab for many years with a solid reputation that is even more important.
    If anyone wished to simultaneously run tests at a different lab, I invite you to share the name of a lab that will test for glyphosate. In my experience most will not, but I welcome the support in finding one. For me, spending 180 dollars compared to the several thousand I already spend on my children’s health is worth it to find out. I understand it may seem too unsure to some. All I can say is I trust the person who connected us and that in doing so I believe that answers and solutions may be possible.

    To respond to the person who says findingout that there is glyphosate in my son’s urine would be in any way a good thing, is completely misled. There should be ZERO glyphosate in any human’s system. It destroys the gut bacteria, impairs the liver’s ability to function and breaks down the blood brain barrier allowing toxins in that could be related to Austiam and Alzheimers. Finding out if glyohosate is in our American children’s urine is in fact crucial to the survival of our culture and nation.
    We Moms want answers NOW and our doctors and the lab they recommend would not test urine for glyphosate. The local water tests for glyphosate test only for much higehr levels than has been shoen to be toxic: see email from water dept.

    “For most purposes micrograms per liter (ug/l) is equivalent to parts per billion.
    First finding is Alameda County in the Contra Costa Water District with a finding of 110 ppb back in 1993. Second finding is in Imperial County, sampled in 2005 with a finding of 66 ppb.

    Current lab standards can see glyphosate at a level of 25 ppb or greater. The allowable Maximum Contaminant Level is 700, which is the standard they would have to exceed to be in exceedance of standards."
    FYI from the “Seeds of Doubt” Conference , video 5 at 38:38 min
    http://www.seedsofdoubtconference.com/videos-la-oct-6-2012

    Our USA acceptable level of glyphosate is 1000ppb standard ( in CA it is 700 ppb) The equivalent european standard is 100 nano grams = .2 ppb ( that is POINT 2)
    In the animal study done in Europe .1 ppb( POINT 1) showed to be toxic in animals. That means our acceptable glyphosate level is 10,000 x times higher than what has been shown to be is highly toxic in animals.
    Mentioned in this video clip, In 1994 a report showed that 70% of glyphosate moves out of the body and 30% retained in bone marrow. From a Monsanto study the highest percentage of glyohosate comes from wheat products…which most American children eat with every meal. I think a test is important.

    This is really peculiar. An ex-Monsanto employee supporting an anti-Monsanto movement? Is he a renegade or a cheater? Still, he apparently has no experience with residue analysis. The ELISA test is very probably not good for urine (a watery solution, though) either.

    I apologize if you have discussed this already but someone posted on Facebook that this lab is supporting MAM. So do the Moms Against Monsanto Know Dr, Hemming pretty well?

    https://www.scienceexchange.com/users/bruce-c-hemming-phd “During his ten years at Monsanto Corporation, Dr. Hemming was responsible for multi-disciplinary teams involved in original research. He earned several patents on his research within the field of microbiology. He was charged with the development of creative exploratory research within crop protection technology with a focus on biological control and microbial genetics and served as Biocontrol Project Leader in the development of biofungicides in conjunction with CSIRO Division of Soils (Australia) and State Universities in the U.S.A. Project coordinator of a multi-disciplinary research team working toward the development of biofungicides. His responsibility included the development of collaborative agreements, preparation of regulatory documents, microbial physiology and tracking studies, coordination of the natural product/gene discovery effort, and field trials of various projects, which included the first introduction into the environment in the U.S.A. of genetically engineered bacteria containing foreign genes.”

    I am not sure about Microbe Inotech. This laboratory is a microbiological and biochemistry lab. I cannot find anything on their site about pesticide residue analysis. These analyses are not easy, and should be done according to Good Laboratory Practice (GLP), because of the stakes. I cannot find anything about GLP certification/accreditation either. It would be unacceptable if they outsourced it to an unknown, non-certified laboratory as well. This is a huge market, so you have to be careful. I think the other labs told the truth: it cannot be done in a economically and scientifically acceptable way, because of the extremely low and highly variable concentrations in urine. You would need a certain number of samples per person, which makes it very expensive.

    Jim you clearly said “Nor is it a chelator”. It sounds like you tried to tell us that glyphosate is NOT a chelator". That is an incorrect statement. I’m not going to go back and check all of your other statements, rather, I will dismiss them all. Actually, I think they should be retracted.

    Jim, on page 10380 on the study you posted. “However, glyphosate is a relatively weak metal cation chelator compared to EDTA” Your credibility score just dropped 50 pts.

    I see Monsanto(!) states that it is only 17% of the recommended daily intake. Maybe food companies should add this value to nutrition labels:

    6. Conclusion
    Glyphosate is used on a large variety of crops, but only a limited number of uses
    generate residues in the edible parts of the crops. Additionally, the acceptable daily
    intake is quite favorable, in line with the toxicological properties of the compound.
    The dietary exposure calculations show that under the unrealistic worst case scenario
    where all the crops, fish, seafood and animal products would contain residues at the
    maximum residue level or at 0.1 mg/kg if no current MRL exists, the consumer would
    only ingest 17% of the glyphosate acceptable daily intake.
    No impact on human health is thus to be expected for the consumer of food treated
    with glyphosate according to good agricultural practices.

    I think it would be very interesting if a good independent researcher could conduct long term feeding studies of GE “foods” on Biotech advocates and their families. I’m sure it would require much oversight, but I would love to see such results.

    We do not want any glyphosate in our pee under any conditions. This is our choice no matter what any research says. Besides, we are learning that even peer-reviewed research is corrupt and biased. It would be very interesting to find out if there are positive results. I hope everyone that sends out samples will post the results here. Maybe we can get some farmers to send in samples as well. I’ll spread the word! Thank you for sharing this valuable resource.

    That’s a nice resource on glyphosate, Sarah. Thank you for sharing. Of course I would never eat glyphosate because I only eat organic foods.

    Donna Clarke, I would suspect that the medical community at large is not speaking up about GMO’s because Health Canada does not ask that they look for signs of adverse health effects. If no-one is looking, you can’t have any evidence of it being there. Absence of evidence does not equate to the evidence being absent.

    Jim Cooper. Pubmed has a large database of studies relating to adverse health effects from glyphosate. They have been put into a handy PDF foe easier reading at

    Glyphosate is a patented antibiotic and like all antibiotics it kills vitally important beneficial soil bacteria and human gut bacteria. It is also a chelator, meaning it meaning it immobilizes critical micronutrients, rendering them unavailable to the plant. If you’re consistently eating foods from which your body cannot extract critical nutrients and minerals, health issues are sure to follow.
