Zen Honeycutt commented on Glyphosate Contamination in Wine 2016-03-24 13:21:41 -0700Please note that many have asked for the names of the brands. Our response:
The supporter who gave us the results of the wine testing has not agreed to release brand information at this time. However, the issue is not the brand, it is the impact of chemical farming and the widespread contamination of consumer products. These results show that any vineyard using these toxic chemicals can expect that their wines and their neighbors’ wines will be contaminated with glyphosate based herbicides.
Zen Honeycutt posted about Birth Defects Petition on Facebook 2015-12-21 08:36:15 -0800Sign the URGENT Birth Defects Petition. Please protect babies!
"I lost my baby due to anencephaly. I was exposed to Roundup (glyphosate) when a family member sprayed our yard early in my pregnancy. My baby was born without a brain, took a few breaths, and died. When I heard about the increased birth defects in Hawaii, Washington State, and now the UK, and learned that glyphosate and atrazine have been linked to these birth defects, I knew I had to speak up. People don't know that these toxic chemicals we are spraying in our yards, on farms and orchards, city parks, county roads, and water ways could be killing our babies.
This has to stop.
I am starting this petition to raise awareness and to ask the EPA to do 3 things:
- Test the affected area resident's water, urine and breast milk for glyphosate, atrazine, lead and other toxins to prevent further deaths.
- Require proof of safety via tests of the COMBINATIONS, all the ingredients in the products together, not just one "active chemical ingredient". If the entire product is not proven safe it should not be permitted anywhere.
- Ban toxic chemicals from products that can be used in gardens, school yards, trees, public spaces on feed and food crops.
I am asking moms in America to speak up too, go to www.momsacrossamerica.com/action and apply for free glyphosate and pesticide water and urine testing if you have had multiple miscarriages or a baby with anencephaly, gastrochisis, spina bifida or cleft palet, or other birth defects. If you know of a childhood cancer cluster, please also ask those parents to come forward and also apply to get their children tested.
When we know better, we do better. It is time to face the fear of knowing so we can take action and save lives.
Please sign and share this petition!
Mom and Supporters Petition the EPA:
TEST for Toxins in Birth Defect Cluster Areas
REQUIRE safety tests for combination of ALL ingredients in any chemical products.
BAN Toxins from our food, water and public spaces.
STOP needless loss of our babies! Prevent pregnant mothers from exposure to toxins!
From Moms Across America:"It is heartbreaking to learn of the tragedy of a 10 fold increase of birth defects in Hawaii, a cluster of 9 birth defects in the UK on one street and now 40 babies dying from anencephaly in WA State since 2010, 5 times the national average.
We understand the accusation that that the Washington Department of Health is not doing their job to protect babies in these communities. Unfortunately, the Washington Dept of Health turned down the offer for free glyphosate tests from Moms Across America in May of 2014 when 30 babies were reported to have died from anencephaly to mothers down stream from orchards where glyphosate is sprayed.
Scientific studies have show that frogs and chicken embryos experienced the same effects when exposed to glyphosate as babies with anencephaly, being born without brains.
We continue to offer mother and mothers to be to apply for free water and urine glyphosate tests in areas where there are clusters of birth defects and cancer."- Zen Honeycutt Founder and Director Moms Across AmericaTo Contact the WA Dept of Health WA directly and encourage them to conduct testing:

From the CDC:
"The causes of anencephaly among most infants are unknown. Some babies have anencephaly because of a change in their genes or chromosomes. Anencephaly might also be caused by a combination of genes and other factors, such as the things the mother comes in contact with in the environment or what the mother eats or drinks, or certain medicines she uses during pregnancy."
- Scientific Study showing birth defects from glyphosate
- Roundup (glyphosate) and endocrine disruption (harm or halt development of fetus)
- Article reporting Birth defects 1 year ago in WA State
- New Article Showing 5 X Increase of Birth Defects in WA State and State Dept Lack of Investigation
- Birth Defect Cluster in UK
- 10X National Average Birth Defects reported in Hawaii
- Weedkiller Atrazine linked to Gastrochisis, rapidly increasing birth defects in Hawaii
- USA Has Highest Infant Mortality Rate in Industrialized World
- 50% more Babies Die on First Day of Life in USA than all of the Industrialized Nations combined
Thank you for signing and sharing this important petition!
