Mom Speaks at Monsanto

Press Release from Moms Across America

Monsanto Shareholder meeting presentation Jan 31, 2015

Organic Consumer's Association, SumOfUs and Moms Across America held a rally at the Monsanto Headquarters on Jan 30, 2015. Supporters came from St.Louis, CA, Arizona, Illnois, Washington DC, Chicago and beyond.

 

Inside the meeting:
Zen Honeycutt  represented John Harrington of Harrington Investments at yesterday’s meeting to ask for shareholder support for Item No. 5, Shareowner Proxy Access—an essential mechanism for accountability supported by institutional investors and the SEC.

 As the founder of Moms Across America  she spoke on behalf of millions of mothers, a  significant group of  long-term stakeholders of Monsanto. Her presentation contained the following:

 1 out of 2 children in America today have a chronic illness such as asthma, allergies, autism, autoimmune disease, Crohn’s, diabetes and obesity. (1) All of these conditions and more can be directly linked to GMOs and Glyphosate--to Monsanto’s products.

 Zen said to Monsanto, on behalf of struggling parents, STOP POISONING our children!  Glyphosate—a patented antibiotic—has been detected in the air, water, food, Fruit Loops (see GMOFreeUSA.com) , our children’s urine, our breast milk, (2) and in feeding tube liquid (3)  fed to children with cancer, at levels thousands of times ABOVE what has been shown to destroy GUT BACTERIA—where 70% of the immune system lies. (4)

 The Monsanto shareholders MUST know, she said that, without proper gut bacteria the body cannot make Tryptophan, Melatonin or Serotonin which regulates insulin—leading to numerous illnesses including diabetes, a disease which is on course to bankrupt US Healthcare in 13 years. (5)

 When the gut bacteria is destroyed, food particles and pathogens escape through the intestines, causing allergies and auto-immune diseases.  Allergy ER Visits have increased 265% since GMOs and glyphosate were introduced. (6)

 

Without healthy gut bacteria and the ability to make serotonin and melatonin, our bodies cannot prevent insomnia, depression, anxiety, and bi-polar disorder. 57.7 million Americans have mental illness today. (7)

 Glyphosate is a DNA mutagen and cell disintegrator, allowing toxins into the brain. (8)

Glyphosate is a chelator, causing vitamin and mineral deficiency. Without certain minerals our bodies cannot fight cancer. (9)

Glyphosate is an endocrine disruptor, causing infertility, sterility, miscarriages and birth defects. (10)

 She stated that she was submitting hundreds of testimonials from mothers describing what Monsanto products are doing to their children and showing how their children get better when they avoid GMOs and eat organic.

Zen also submitted hundreds of pages of studies and papers today showing how glyphosate impacts the gut brain connection (11), leading to birth defects (12), liver and kidney disease (13), Parkinson’s (14), Non Hodgkin’s Lymphoma (15), Alzheimer's, Celiac’s, Autism (15) and Cancer (16).  According to the current rate of diagnosis we can expect, in 20 years, 50% of our children born will get autism. (17)

 Zen said that understands that no one wants to believe this is true, however, she asked, has anyone on the Board read the newest studies and research??

She asked :

"What if the very investments Monsanto’s shareholders are making to BUILD a foundation of security for our children and grandchildren are the same investments which are DESTROYING their future? What if instead of creating health and prosperity, they are causing ECONOMIC RUIN?

 What if instead of feeding millions of people with GMOs, Monsanto is in fact hurting generations to come?

 We mothers say, STOP IT. STOP IT NOW.

You have an opportunity to make a difference for your families and our country.  We ask shareholders to support Shareholder Access Proxy  and vote a pediatrician onto this board.  We ask Monsanto to have the courage to create a new future for Monsanto and America.

Thank you."

The proxy passed by 53%.

Honeycutt was thankful to Harrington Investments who gave her the opportunity to speak on behalf of mothers every where. She said, “I hope the shareholders where able to understand that I represent, not just angry moms, but moms who are informed citizens. We have the experiences with our children and the science to back us up.” She promises that “Moms will not stop. We will not give up, because the love for our children will never end.”

Moms Across America plans a Moms MeetUp on May 2, 2015 where Moms will meet in their communities and cause a billion dollar shift to organic food. Go to www.momsacrossamerica.com for more information.

    Thank you for all our efforts. I don’t know anyone whose family has not been affected by GMOs and glyphosate “poisoning”. How anyone can NOT see the health effects being played out in this country is beyond me. All one has to do is look at when GMOs hit our stores and look at when cancer rates increased 10 fold, and obesity, autism, alzhiemers, infertility became common place. I am 61 yrs. old I remember when these conditions didn’t exist. I have researched and read everything I can get my hands on about this topic. The only conclusion I can come too as to why our government allows this and protects Monsanto, etal is because they employed Monsanto to find a non-obvious way to reduce the population. After all haven’t we been hearing for decades how Soc. Sec. was not going to solvent when it came time to pay out benefits to the Baby Boomers? Kill them off with cancer and Alzhiemers and then you won’t have to. Problem with that plan is you’re are also killing off the young.

    Oh my… Where to begin. I am a mom of two healthy children that grew up playing next to…walking through…working in GMOs crop fields. My four nephews and my niece did as well. For their whole lives, they were surrounded by GMO fields. They – each and every one of them – are college graduates and are now having healthy beautiful children of their own. If there had ever been one iota of evidence suggesting that GMOs were unhealthy…I would never have allowed my husband to grow them. The truth is they are safe – the world Health Organization says so…the American Medical association says so…and many other credible organizations say the same.

    Zen, thank you from my heart for a job well done, for your passion, your generosity and your persistence in educating about the presence of GMOs, pesticide delivery systems, in our foods.
    You have shown that the emperor has no clothes. That corporate front groups promote unfounded frankenfoods which have never been independently tested, and that the EPA considers these poisons safe or (GRAS) generally recognized as safe, and has deregulated them. The glyphosate and bT toxins (breaks down into formaldehyde etc) now has invaded our soil, water, and children’s bodies.
    We appreciate you going the extra mile for our children and generations to come, in posting evidence of harm from these genetically engineered foods and their associated poisons, and taking the message to the source, Monsanto Stockholders meeting, and speaking to the CEO about changing to a new direction.
    Not in our bodies. Not in our waters. Not on our soils or anywhere else in the world. Contamination is forever.
