NEW INTERNATIONAL VALIDATED GLYPHOSATE TESTING!!
The Feed The World project launched April 23, 2015, with a World first, unique glyphosate test for the general public. The project with a specific focus on women and children in the U.S. is offering the first-ever validated public LC/MS/MS glyphosate testing for urine, water, and soon breast milk. This could lead to a ban on the sale and use of glyphosate, the world’s number one herbicide.
The World Health Organization (WHO) announcement in March shocked the global biotech (GMO) industry by classifying their most profitable chemical – glyphosate – as a “probable human carcinogen” (1).
Henry Rowlands, Director of Feed The World (2) stated Thursday;
“Glyphosate is the backbone of our current agricultural system that supplies us with toxic food, water, and air. We aim to ban glyphosate by allowing the public to inform themselves about what levels of glyphosate are found in their own and their family’s bodies. Feed The World will also give a platform to profitable, agriculture alternatives that allow farmers, businesses, and governments to change direction towards a better non-toxic future for our children.”
The validated glyphosate testing method (2) sponsored by Feed The World will allow the general public to find out with certainty what levels of glyphosate are found in their bodies and in their tap water.
Our previous MAA tests and reports completed in 2014 showed that glyphosate is found in American women’s breast milk, urine, and water, but due to the ELISA testing method used in these tests the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and other government regulators were able to ignore the results. Feed The World has commissioned and sponsored a new validated LC/MS/MS testing method which will increase the pressure on the EPA and other regulators to take serious action on glyphosate-based herbicides, and potentially ban glyphosate.
Here is the info from our winter 2014 project: You can still test yourself, the data is just not a part of an MAA project.
If you DO get yourself tested, please post your first name, city, state, and results below in the 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 by 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.
This chart of correlation is of grave concern to Moms. We encourage all Moms who have children with autism, allergies, autoimmune disorders, asthma or IBS to get tested.
We forever appreciate the efforts of Microbe Inotech and will continue to work with them. The current need for validated testing has us currently promoting the FeedtheWorld Project. If you had tests done with Microbe Inotech you can rest assured you got the most accurate testing available to the public at a reasonable price, at the time.
If you need to contact Microbe about an existing order please call or contact them. MAA is not handling calls about glyphosate testing orders.
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 make up our children's immune systems?
Thank you for your partnership in health and freedom in America!

Hi, why does the Microbe Inotech website state that the detection level of the urine test is 7.5ppb, when I thought it was .5ppb??
Just this month New Rat Study:
Gene expression analysis in lab confirms:
Roundup causes liver and kidney damage at very low doses
A new peer-reviewed study led by Dr. Michael Antoniou at King’s College London
Glyphosate was half that permitted in drinking water in the European Union,
14,000 times lower than that permitted in drinking water in the USA and
20,000 times lower than that permitted in Australia.

Be sure to see the (second) comment (by ‘Plaidsportcoat’) after the article.
The damage to our highly green property is huge! We were outside during the aerial drift and are not experiencing any physical problems currently. However, one always has to ask "would I really want to take the chance that this is a healthy condition [to be sprayed] and why does the insurance company not recognize our concern? " We are proceeding with a property damage claim and the inconvenience, frustration, compensatory damages that we are entitled to. However there is no legal precedent for our case. Our injuries are not proven and if they were, we would have the regular GMO use in water and everyday crops we ingest as a pre-existing condition. So we are fighting on the basis of the FEAR of being poisoned, etc. In addition to all our trees and garden crops being zapped and dead, we have lost our 2 bee hive colonies. The ecosystem of our 5 acre property stands high above farm land and huge tree lines shade our property. Those 75 year old growth trees including hackberry, and large beautiful oak trees are showing death signs. We are saddened by all the destruction this farmer caused by a small plot of land “needing” a spray when it has never been done in our 10 years on this property. There are many participants in this and it begins with the farmer’s choice.
Agriculture is taught to kill what hampers their crop. Trees are cut and burned to clear for fields, farmers get supplements from the US Govt for poor yield based on events out of their control and we as the consumer take all this in stride.
The water and food we eat are not only the sources of Glyphosate flooding. Your air has particles of this and your trees and all leafy plants are sucking it in too. Mother Earth knows full well where she should be. I pray that we all consider our consumption habits to prevent this full cycle poisoning of our ecosystem.
Blessings to the Mothers on Mother Earth.
@zen Honeycutt—is the lab still testing and where are the results being posted? Can you test breastmilk as well? I am a concerned mom willing to pay for tests but just want more info. on lab’s credibility and results.
Does not mean it is not there, just not detectable at that level.

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
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.
