Glyphosate detected in feeding tubes given to babies and children with cancer

(NaturalNews) An unthinkable, (although not entirely surprising), discovery has been made by a group called “Moms Across America,” a coalition of mothers fighting to raise awareness and support regarding the dangers of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and their associated pesticides.


Thanks to contributions provided by sponsors and private citizens, Moms Across America funded an experiment that tested feeding tube liquid used in a pediatric rehabilitation hospital where one of the group’s supporters is employed.

To say the findings are alarming would be a severe understatement.

According to the results, 6 out of 20 (30 percent) samples of Pediasure, a supposed “nutritional” drink given to ill children in the pediatric unit, tested positive for unsafe levels of glyphosate.

Remember, glyphosate is the primary ingredient found in Monsanto’s Roundup, and is also the most widely used weedkiller in the U.S. Glyphosate application has more than doubled in recent times, increasing from around 90 million pounds in 2001 to 185 million in 2007, according to statistics provided by the Pesticide Action Network (PAN).

The pesticide has been linked to toxicity in humans, resulting in cancer, reproductive and developmental complications and neurotoxicity. It’s also been directly linked to non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, as well as other serious health effects.

Moms Across America reports that Microbe Inotech, a lab in St. Louis, Missouri, tested Pediasure samples from the same batch, detecting glyphosate levels above 75 parts per billion (ppb) at 800 to 1,1110 times higher than has previously been proven to destroy gut bacteria in chickens, or 0.1 ppb. Another study found that 50 parts per trillion (ppt) induced liver, kidney and sex hormone changes in rats.

“These samples were sent by a Moms Across America supporter.This [sic] is the exact brand used in the pediatric rehabilitation hospital where she worked and was fed patients needing tube feeding in critical care,” reports a blog post by the group.

    Pure evil is at work now. We see the poison in foods and the explosion in health issues. How children in this severe state of illness can be treated in this way is totally abhorrent. This is really a step too far. I hope the women in the world can stand up and pull this cabal down and get some justice for all the vulnerable people under this attack. Time is telling us we must fight back and get the whole thing started.

    TAP, you have a good platform mate, this was posted on GOODF, think a bit of extra publicity off you would do it good

    EU member states will now be able to decide for themselves whether to produce GM crops, according to a new law, which is already stoking controversy. They can now ban even the cultivation of crops approved by the European Food Safety Authority.

    The contentious law has passed by a large margin of 480 in favor to 159 against, with 58 abstaining.

    The law is said to have achieved success owing to its flexibility. Since 1998, only a certain type of GM crop (MON810, from Monsanto) was cultivated in Europe.

    Cameron backs genetically modified crops to prove Britain is pro-science

    David Cameron has given the clearest signal yet that the government wants to see controversial genetically-modified crops grown across the country.

    The Prime Minister told a conference of entrepreneurs that Britain needs to take a ‘really good look again’ at its policy on GM food if it is to prove it is a ‘pro-science’ country.

    The intervention from Mr Cameron that he wants to see a GM free-for-all across the UK will alarm those who deride genetic modification as ‘Frankenscience’.

    It emerged earlier this week that ministers are to push the European Union to relax restrictions on the cultivation of GM crops for human consumption.

    But it is the first time that the Prime Minister has spoken up in favour of the idea. In opposition he was seen as being sceptical of GM crops.
