Reports of Menstrual Cycle Irregularities After COVID Vaccine

Moms Across America is deeply committed to creating healthy families and communities. Our reproductive health is essential for the viability and health of our babies and for future generations. 

Two new papers, one published in the BMJ called Rapid Response: Thrombosis (menstrual irregularities and blood clotting) after covid-19 vaccination, address concerns about the COVID vaccine* that are being reported online and researched by a recent University of Illinois survey. The BMJ study points to "underlying conditions" that might be blamed for the heavy and irregular periods and blood clotting that can lead to death. We are not so sure...

The second study published in the Journal of Pharmaceutical Policy and Practice states,  "On 19th March 2020, scientists from Oslo identified an antibody from vaccinated individuals which they suspect is responsible for attacking platelets and causing recent thrombotic events [7]. This discovery also supports our hypothesis [6] that CoViD genetic vaccines may have a direct role in spurring autoimmune response against platelets that may clinically manifest in thrombocytopenia, hemorrhage, and blood clots."

To support nationwide clarity on this issue, we ask that anyone who has received the COVID vaccine, please fill out the following survey and file a report with the CDC's Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System VAERS.

The following parameters are directly from the University of Illinois survey:

Menstrual experiences with COVID-19 vaccines

Key Information: You are being asked to participate in voluntary research. This study aims to understand the menstrual experiences of people after they have been vaccinated for COVID-19. Participating in this study will involve completing a secure online survey which takes about 15-20 minutes. Risks related to this research include the potential to feel uncomfortable answering questions about your body and health. The benefits of this research are sharing your experiences and contributing to an often-overlooked area of health research.

Responsible Principal Investigator: Dr. Kathryn Clancy, Department of Anthropology, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (email: [email protected])

Purpose of the study: This research study is about your experiences with your period or other menstrual bleeding (such as "spotting") and associated symptoms after receiving at least one dose of a vaccine for COVID-19. Side effects are a common and even important element of the vaccine response, and bleeding patterns can be an important way to understand how our immune systems are activated.

Roundup is Not Just a Carcinogenic Herbicide. It's a Bee Killing Pesticide Too.

A new study released April 6, 2021, in the Journal of Applied Ecology reveals that Roundup, the most widely used herbicide in the world, and the focus of recent lawsuits regarding non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, is not just a weedkiller but a bee killer as well.

This study is monumental because the decline of bee populations has been drastically declining since Roundup was introduced to agriculture, landscaping, and backyard gardening in the late 1970s. In the US, the number of honey-bee colonies dropped from 6 million in 1947 to just 2.5 million in 2014. In 2015, Monsanto made nearly $4.76 billion in sales and $1.9 billion in gross profits from herbicide products, mostly Roundup.

One of the Law Firms That Defeated Monsanto Now Leads Toxic Baby Food Litigation

The recent congressional report detailing high levels of toxic heavy metals in baby foods came as a shock to parents throughout the country. Certain baby foods, including purees, snack puffs, rice cereal, and other products, contain dangerously high levels of arsenic, cadmium, mercury, and lead. Studies show that exposure to these heavy metals may play a role in causing autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and attention deficit hyperactive disorder (ADHD).

Female Babies Likely Androgenized by Glyphosate Exposure in the Womb

A new study provides more evidence for what many of us have been concerned about- endocrine-disrupting pesticides affect the reproductive organs of our children. This means that eating organic while pregnant and avoiding Roundup and other glyphosate weedkillers (read the label!) is being shown to be even MORE worth the extra effort.

We cherish children of all genders and sexual identities. And, having their reproductive organs altered by unnecessary and harmful pesticides in food or our neighborhoods is just unacceptable. All children deserve to have their bodies be formed and developed naturally as God/Nature intended. 

As first seen on Sustainable Pulse, a new peer-reviewed pilot study from a group of international scientists from the U.S. and EU suggests that baby girls' anogenital distance is becoming more male-typical due to their mothers being exposed to glyphosate when they are in the womb.

The study published on Monday in the well-respected Elsevier peer-reviewed Journal ‘Environmental Pollution, is a breakthrough in our understanding of glyphosate as a hormone hacker (endocrine disruptor).

Fighting Climate Change with Plants

 

On March 22, 2021, The Del Mar Garden Club of Southern California held an informational session called “Fighting Climate Change with Plants”. As a person who is extremely concerned about the looming apocalyptic events due to climate chaos, but not extremely well informed about what we can do to prevent them, I signed up.

I quickly realized that the presentation was not going in the direction that I had hoped, meaning extolling the innate virtues of plants that have the ability to sequester carbon if we just let Mother Nature do her job. No. Featured speaker Joanne Chory, a plant geneticist from the Salk Institute, based in San Diego, CA shared how she and her team were genetically engineering plants to have bigger roots, longer roots, and roots that sequester more carbon by manipulating the gene that makes suberin to make more suberin and therefore hold more carbon, and then put those genes into crop plants. They were going to start with Sorghum. (I will talk about why that is interesting later.) She showed slides depicting what would be manipulated and how the roots were in fact growing longer in preliminary trials. I actually considered that it might be a good idea. For about a second.

Heavy Metals In Baby Food and What We Can Do About It

Congress Releases New Baby Food Safety Act of 2021 After Report on High Levels of Heavy Metal Contamination in Baby Food

Summary:

  • The New Baby Food Safety Act of 2021 has been presented and, if passed, will set heavy metal levels in baby food for the first time.
  • A recent Congressional report shows in-house testing from four baby food companies to have heavy metal contamination of ingredients up to 177 times higher than FDA standards.
  • These companies knew the levels far exceeded FDA allowable levels for heavy metals in water and still approved the products for sale to the public.
  • Three baby food companies did not comply and did not send the Congressional Committee the heavy metal testing data as requested.
  • The ingredients that tested the highest for heavy metal contamination were organic and nonorganic rice products, spices, and additives.
  • The entry method of heavy metal contamination is unknown. Still, scientists suspect that heavy metals are pollutants of pesticides in fertilizer, irrigation water, or metal machinery used to grind and process food.
  • Moms Across America calls for parents to make their baby food and for the FDA to require heavy metal (and pesticide) testing of all final products.

Nationwide Health Share of Regeneratively Grown Organic Food Announced

We are SO EXCITED!

We finally found an American Regenerative Organic farmer that sells flour and beans that will ship directly to you!

Sixth-generation Wisconsin farmers Mark and Lucy Doudlah and their family kicked the habit of GMO chemical farming and switched to organic regenerative agriculture in 2008. One day at an agriculture lecture, Mark realized they were not “Feeding the World” as Monsanto told them they were doing, but they were making themselves and other people sick. Tragically, Mark’s father, who used Glyphosate, Atrazine, and many agrochemicals, died of cancer long before his time.

New TechSafe Schools Program Launched

Many of us have children that are heading back to the classroom. During the shutdowns, many school districts have “upgraded” their technology systems and have purchased laptops or iPads for every student. When our children do go back to school, instead of exposure to one device’s radio frequency (RF) radiation, they will be in a room for hours a day with a dozen or two devices. 

We must ensure that schools are making classrooms as safe as possible. The fact is that school districts have a legal obligation to provide a safe learning environment for our children. Science is showing that RF radiation can be harmful to our children. 

Recent peer-reviewed studies have confirmed that exposure to RF radiation can increase the incidence of acute symptoms like headaches, dizziness and nausea, as well as more serious long-term health problems including damage to immune and reproductive systems, changes in DNA, and even cancer. 

Children are at higher risk from RF radiation because of their thinner skulls, developing nervous system and rapidly changing physiology.

Although manufacturers and the FCC claim that RF radiation is safe, the current FCC human exposure guidelines were developed back in the 1980s, and last updated in 1996!  

What’s the solution? Hardwired classrooms are the safest and most secure learning environments for children. Hardwired systems are faster, more reliable, easily adaptable to new technologies, and have none of the potential health issues now associated with wireless technology. Virtually any computer, smartphone, or tablet can be connected to the internet using simple, low-cost adapters.
