$5 of every test goes to MAA to raise awareness about GMOs, when ordered from this link. Please share!

The Feed The World project launched April 23,2015 with a World first, unique glyphosate test for the general public. The project with 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 a MAA project.

If you DO get yourself tested, please post your first name, city, state and results below in 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 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, auto immune disorders, asthma or IBS to get tested.

In the past we promoted the lab directly Microbe Inotech Laboratories, Inc.  (314) 645-2177 x104

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 makes up our children's immune systems?

    This is really peculiar. An ex-Monsanto employee supporting an anti-Monsanto movement? Is he a renegade or a cheater? Still, he apparently has no experience with residue analysis. The ELISA test is very probably not good for urine (a watery solution, though) either.

    I apologize if you have discussed this already but someone posted on Facebook that this lab is supporting MAM. So do the Moms Against Monsanto Know Dr, Hemming pretty well?

    https://www.scienceexchange.com/users/bruce-c-hemming-phd “During his ten years at Monsanto Corporation, Dr. Hemming was responsible for multi-disciplinary teams involved in original research. He earned several patents on his research within the field of microbiology. He was charged with the development of creative exploratory research within crop protection technology with a focus on biological control and microbial genetics and served as Biocontrol Project Leader in the development of biofungicides in conjunction with CSIRO Division of Soils (Australia) and State Universities in the U.S.A. Project coordinator of a multi-disciplinary research team working toward the development of biofungicides. His responsibility included the development of collaborative agreements, preparation of regulatory documents, microbial physiology and tracking studies, coordination of the natural product/gene discovery effort, and field trials of various projects, which included the first introduction into the environment in the U.S.A. of genetically engineered bacteria containing foreign genes.”

    I am not sure about Microbe Inotech. This laboratory is a microbiological and biochemistry lab. I cannot find anything on their site about pesticide residue analysis. These analyses are not easy, and should be done according to Good Laboratory Practice (GLP), because of the stakes. I cannot find anything about GLP certification/accreditation either. It would be unacceptable if they outsourced it to an unknown, non-certified laboratory as well. This is a huge market, so you have to be careful. I think the other labs told the truth: it cannot be done in a economically and scientifically acceptable way, because of the extremely low and highly variable concentrations in urine. You would need a certain number of samples per person, which makes it very expensive.

    Jim you clearly said “Nor is it a chelator”. It sounds like you tried to tell us that glyphosate is NOT a chelator". That is an incorrect statement. I’m not going to go back and check all of your other statements, rather, I will dismiss them all. Actually, I think they should be retracted.

    Jim, on page 10380 on the study you posted. “However, glyphosate is a relatively weak metal cation chelator compared to EDTA” Your credibility score just dropped 50 pts.

    Glyphosate was first patented by Stauffer Chemical Co. in 1964 as a strong metal chelator (U.S. Patent No. 3,160,632).

    I see Monsanto(!) states that it is only 17% of the recommended daily intake. Maybe food companies should add this value to nutrition labels:

    6. Conclusion
    Glyphosate is used on a large variety of crops, but only a limited number of uses
    generate residues in the edible parts of the crops. Additionally, the acceptable daily
    intake is quite favorable, in line with the toxicological properties of the compound.
    The dietary exposure calculations show that under the unrealistic worst case scenario
    where all the crops, fish, seafood and animal products would contain residues at the
    maximum residue level or at 0.1 mg/kg if no current MRL exists, the consumer would
    only ingest 17% of the glyphosate acceptable daily intake.
    No impact on human health is thus to be expected for the consumer of food treated
    with glyphosate according to good agricultural practices.

    I think it would be very interesting if a good independent researcher could conduct long term feeding studies of GE “foods” on Biotech advocates and their families. I’m sure it would require much oversight, but I would love to see such results.

    We do not want any glyphosate in our pee under any conditions. This is our choice no matter what any research says. Besides, we are learning that even peer-reviewed research is corrupt and biased. It would be very interesting to find out if there are positive results. I hope everyone that sends out samples will post the results here. Maybe we can get some farmers to send in samples as well. I’ll spread the word! Thank you for sharing this valuable resource.

    That’s a nice resource on glyphosate, Sarah. Thank you for sharing. Of course I would never eat glyphosate because I only eat organic foods.

    Donna Clarke, I would suspect that the medical community at large is not speaking up about GMO’s because Health Canada does not ask that they look for signs of adverse health effects. If no-one is looking, you can’t have any evidence of it being there. Absence of evidence does not equate to the evidence being absent.

    Jim Cooper. Pubmed has a large database of studies relating to adverse health effects from glyphosate. They have been put into a handy PDF foe easier reading at
    http://www.greenmedinfo.com/sites/default/files/free_downloads/gpub_78151_toxic_ingredient_glyphosate_formulations.pdf
    Glyphosate is a patented antibiotic and like all antibiotics it kills vitally important beneficial soil bacteria and human gut bacteria. It is also a chelator, meaning it meaning it immobilizes critical micronutrients, rendering them unavailable to the plant. If you’re consistently eating foods from which your body cannot extract critical nutrients and minerals, health issues are sure to follow.

    If what we are seeking is proof, wouldn’t correlative results showing high levels of glyphosate in the presence of leaky gut, MTHFR mutation, or Autism, etc. hold more sway than just illustrating the presence of glyphosate in urine? That seems easily dismissable when dealing with government agencies run by the company that swears it is safe. There are unfortunately on average about 200 chemicals present in the breast milk of American mothers. I just think we need the strongest data possible, and my fear is simply demonstrating presence of a chemical may not be enough.

    What are the effects I see Donna Clark? Children with multiple food sensitivities, Autistic children, kids with behavioral issues or ADHD, dysbiosis, leaky gut, malnutrition, MTHFR gene mutations… The list goes on. The medical community is not particularly interested in the root cause of illness of there is a poll they can give you for the symptoms. There are a growing number of supportive voices in the medical community but they are still few and far between.

    " As a pediatric nutritionist I see the devastating effects of GMOS and glyphosate every day." Geez what are they? If this is true why isn’t the medical community speaking up about GMOS.

    commented 2013-12-17 14:30:04 -0800
    How was this lab selected? I may be missing it, but I do not see that they are a CLIA certified lab, so I am wondering about the validity of their urinalysis. As a pediatric nutritionist I see the devastating effects of GMOS and glyphosate every day. I would love to see this type of testing available, but only through a credible source. I have been on their website and do not see where they are doing any testing on people (or fluids). I understand the benefit of gathering these numbers from a research perspective, but what practical application will this have in the lives of our children? Perhaps pairing with a test for intestinal barrier integrity would be beneficial as it would draw a correlation between the presence of glyphosate in the body and leaky gut syndrome. There are some great tests available to check this. Personally, I recommend BioHealth Laboratories for this testing and can provide more info if anyone is interested. I’m not trying to be combative about this testing; just trying to understand its benefits. Thank you!
