Preliminary Black Bean Nutrient Testing Results

At Moms Across America, we focus on the impact of industrial chemical farming on the health and safety of our food supply. One area of impact is the nutrient density of the food crops. Toxic agrochemicals can reduce the soil quality, microbiota, and nutrient density of our food. We have been learning a lot about regenerative organic agriculture and how it does not utilize frequently deep tilling, and can often be no-till, which means the soil is undisturbed and soil quality improves over time. Theoretically, the nutrient density of the soil of regeneratively and organically grown crops would increase and improve.

We decided to do some preliminary testing on nutrients to see if supporters would be interested in finding out more. We wondered, is regenerative and organically grown food more nutritious than organic and conventional? We decided to go with common food, black beans.

Scottish Mum Shares Experience on Having Village Go Pesticide Free!

Annie MacDonald 
Pesticide Free Balerno 
 
I am a mum who lives in Balerno, Scotland, just south of Edinburgh. I suffered many illnesses until age 40, which meant spending a year in the hospital as a child and being on various medications. My test results never gave me any answers.
 
When I turned 40, I took control of my health. Eliminating dairy and gluten, I reduced particular food and environmental chemicals (both naturally occurring and artificial). Going primarily organic, I regained my health.

Enough!

enough.jpg

We, at Moms Across America, have had ENOUGH with the following:

  • Our government allowing known carcinogens and endocrine disruptors that cause liver and kidney disease and weaken the immune system on our food.

  • Corporations lobbying our government, ghostwriting "science," and influencing policy to be in their special interest, not in our best interest.

  • Our government mandating medical procedures, dismissing the entire professional experience of physicians and personal bodily autonomy.

  • The EPA allowing chemical products to be approved with testing on only 1 ingredient and not the full formulation.

  • The CDC board members are allowed to hold patents for vaccines - and profiting from the very things they are supposed to be regulating.

  • The FDA allowing corporations to regulate their own GMO products and releasing them into the marketplace unlabeled.

  • The FCC allowing wireless technology in our children's classrooms and antennas outside our homes that expose our families to harmful radiation without our consent.

All these things are happening for one primary purpose- for corporations to make more money and increase their power.

Walk IN for Health Freedom

This week President Biden announced a federal mandate that will require employers with over 100 employees to require their workers to get the COVID vaccine, even though the clinical trials have yet to be completed. We find it outrageous that the members of Congress and their staff are exempt from the mandate while hardworking Americans now face losing their jobs or getting an experimental injection (although the FDA approved one vaccine, the trials will not be completed until between 2022-2024) regardless of their personal decision or individual genetic disposition.

At Moms Across America, most of us have children with chronic health issues. On that journey, many of us have had to go through extensive and expensive genetic testing to sort out the factors contributing to their issues. 

If there is anything that we have learned about health, it is the following:

  • Every person has a unique genetic disposition
  • Many people, up to 50% (1 in 3 Chinese women, 1 in 4 Caucasians), have gene mutations like the MTHFR genes that can lead to impaired ability to detox toxins. And they cannot afford genetic testing
  • The inability to detox toxins such as those found in food, polluted air and water, and vaccines can harm people
  • Some of that harm can be lifelong or life-threatening

For these health reasons, and many other moral, religious, and ethical reasons, Moms Across America does not support mandating ANY medical procedure, especially ones that have already been shown to harm over 1.4 million people and are not effective in the transmission or contraction of a disease.

Many are considering a WALK-OUT Wednesday action, and it is important to stick together for personal health freedom.

If you have had enough of the mandates and government intrusion into our health decisions you can join also the #ENOUGH movement to connect with others who feel the same.

We also ask you to consider a WALK-IN.

Tell the CA EPA What You Want to See on the Roundup Label

The CA EPA operates separately from the federal EPA and has long been a leader in somewhat safer environmental policies. On Sept 9, 2021, they are holding a hearing at the Office of Environmental Health Hazards Assessment regarding what the exact wording should be on the label of glyphosate herbicides aka Roundup, Ranger Pro, and 750 other generic brands when used in California. What happens in California affects trade and policy around the world.

Please see below and consider participating. EVERY VOICE MATTERS and you do not have to be an expert. You can simply be someone who suspects glyphosate herbicides affected your health, your family's health, your pet, bees, or marine life near you. The OEHHA office needs to know we citizens are serious about protecting life on the planet and creating healthy communities. Please speak up with us.

We have included our perspective in this article but urge you to use other studies from our data page to touch upon the many other ways glyphosate harms life and therefore should be accurately labeled as such.

Thank you

The True Savings of Organic Food

An Account of Our Research Process and Findings

By Irene Fearnley and the Moms Across America Team

It’s no secret that cooking meals at home are more cost-effective than going out to eat. But what if you want to eat 100% organic, isn't that more expensive? 

In our new research, we show that it is still more cost-effective even if the ingredients are 100% organic. In addition to helping your wallet, cooking meals at home also has the potential for significant health benefits; since you yourself are in control of the products and ingredients you buy, it is easier to make eating organic, non-GMO whole foods a priority. When it comes to eating your meals outside the home, you may be inundated with unhealthy and non-sustainably grown options like the fare offered at fast-food chains. Even at other restaurants, you can never be too sure about the types of ingredients being used and where they are sourced from. To put it plainly, when you decide to cook from home you are making the decision that is truly best for your health and that of your family.

Is it Insensitive to Advocate for Organic Food to Low Income Populations?

America has been in a health crisis for over a decade. Heart disease and cancer have each been killing nearly 2000 people a day, long before COVID. At this rate, we are set to bankrupt our nation with health care costs in less than 8 years (unless we keep printing money of course).  Either way, our society is being severely impacted by the cost of health issues.

And yet, the number one disagreement when we at Moms Across America insist that organic, regeneratively grown food is essential for creating healthy communities and local food security, is that it “costs too much.” A common argument of GMO proponents is that educating low income people about the benefits of organic leads to them feeling “embarrassed and ashamed because they cannot afford it.” This implies that our mission for everyone to have access to healthy organic, regeneratively grown food is somehow insensitive and maybe even discriminatory.

Is Your Family Swimming in Pesticides in HOA Outdoor Pools?

When a family member was recently diagnosed with kidney disease, I wondered if the pesticides sprayed in her HOA might have contributed to the illness. When I got the HOA's landscaping records, as you will see in the letter below, I was shocked. I realized that the thousands of gallons of these toxic chemicals, mostly sprayed around the community amenity center where the outdoor pool is located, were likely drifting into the pool. My family member swam in that pool several times a week during warm weather, which in Florida, was often. I believe that outdoor pool water could be a significant source of exposure to toxic landscaping and pest management chemicals, contributing to chronic health issues.

By going through this process I have realized that people all across the nation could benefit if we could test pool water in multiple HOAs for the toxic pesticides that they are using to kill weeds and pests. We could convince the HOA managers and landscaper to switch to safer alternatives (we provide a list of many choices) and we could make a difference in hundreds or thousands of communities being healthier.

It is our fervent hope that you will read the below letter, use a version of it for your HOA ( after you get your HOA records), and partner with us to create healthy communities!

How America Got Here

It is not uncommon for us to visit our parents or inlaws and see more prescription medications than we can count as part of their daily routine. And yet, most of our family members will insist that they are “fine.” They think that the pills will fix whatever is happening with them and that their doctor knows best.

Over 50% of our nation’s people have chronic health issues. Fertility is plummeting. 42% of us are obese. Thirty million have liver disease. $35 billion is spent on kidney dialysis. Diabetes increasing rate could bankrupt our country in a few years. We have a skyrocketing number of mental health issues. No, we are not okay. And what most of our doctors are doing is not working. They are simply prescribing more drugs.
