Many American children are being poisoned by the food they are eating.

When Zen Honeycutt removed genetically modified food from her boys’ diets, their perplexing health conditions ceased.

She realized that somebody had to get the word out. Then, she realized that she was somebody.

Zen founded Moms Across America. Her commitment is to empower millions to stop eating GMOs and related chemicals.

Our Kids’ Health Is Being

Sacrificed To Corporate Greed!

In 2003 with the publication of Seeds of Deception by Jeffrey Smith, Nutrition News said, “Just say ‘no’ to GMOs!”

Recently, a live presentation by Zen Honeycutt revealed a deeper level of danger inherent to genetically engineered plants and their poisonous harvest.1

Don’t Poison Your Kids With GMO Foods

Through revelatory laboratory testing, Zen uncovered that GMO “foods” are a poison delivery system to humans.

Save Our Children Now!!!

A direct danger to our health, our children are even more vulnerable.

The information in this newsletter is hard to take. You’ll want to put your fingers in your ears and go “Lalalalalala”.

After a while that gets boring and the problem is still there. So we might as well stay aware and start doing something about it.

Caveat Emptor

Americans eat the most GMOs of any peoples in the world. And, we have the worst health of the 17 most developed nations.

GMOs are in 85% of our packaged foods. Although there was no human testing of these products, this year marks the 20th anniversary of our being the unwitting participants in a huge experiment.

The results are in: GMOs are not healthy for humans and other living beings. During that time, our health as a people has declined spectacularly:2

• The USA is #1 in the number of infant deaths in the first 24 hours.

• 1:2 of our children have a chronic illness.

• 1:2 American males and 1:3 American females can expect to get cancer.

• Pesticides are linked to loss of IQ. The average American IQ has dropped 7 points since GMOs came on the market.

(This doesn’t include the numbers of children and adults with obesity, diabetes, digestive complaints and autism.)

In addition to having the highest Day 1 infant mortality rate among 17 industrialized countries, more infants die on Day 1 in the US than in all the other industrialized nations combined.

This amounts to 2 million American babies lost each year – almost 240 babies every hour! (There is no way to report the grief behind this statistic.)

Not only are we losing newborns, there is a 30% failure-to-conceive rate in young couples. According the Sierra Club, this is the highest infertility rate in our recorded history.

What about the trade-out?

You’ve heard it: Biotechnology will save humanity. Wrong! Despite the promises of the biotech industry, none of the predicted advantages of GMO crops have materialized.

There is no increased yield, no drought tolerance, no enhanced nutrition, nor any other consumer benefit.

In fact, the promise of decreased use of chemicals has completely backfired. The pests and weeds are winning. Even though 80% of GMOs are engineered to withstand Roundup, hundreds of weeds are now Roundup resistant.

In 2013, the use of Roundup increased by 73%! Because of this failure, a stronger chemical is being developed. Called “Duo Enlist”, read more about it under “Siri Says” at the end of the newsletter.

Genetically modified organisms are plants or animals created through the process of genetic engineering.

This experimental technology forces DNA from one species into a different species. In this case, genes from pesticides (Bacillus thuringiensis in corn) and herbicides (Roundup Ready soy) are forced into the seeds. (Then the plants are sprayed with even more of these chemicals in the fields.)

The resulting GMOs are unstable combinations of plant, animal, bacterial, and viral genes that cannot occur in nature nor in traditional breeding. (Some religious groups refer to GMO as God

Caveat Emptor

Move Over!

Speaking at the International Sustainable Agriculture Forum in Beijing (July 2014), Mae-Wan Ho, PhD, British geneticist, commented that there are unexpected changes in genetically engineered DNA.

She explained that the reconstructed DNA doesn’t know how to behave. It produces “uncontrollable and unpredictable hazards: scrambled genomes, novel nucleic acids, proteins, and metabolites”.3

Two of the hazards of restructured DNA are the activation of dormant viruses and the creation of new viruses.

As you are learning, a growing body of evidence connects GMOs with health problems.

It is also connected to environmental damage and violations of farmers’ and consumers’ rights. For example, the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) says we consumers have the right to know if our orange juice is fresh or from concentrate.

On the other hand, GMOs are not labeled and we are denied the right to know when what we are buying/eating is actually different enough to be patented.

Move Over!


3 Ho elucidated this by adding some of the effects of the modification process:

Scrambling the host genome; Widespread mutations; Inactivating genes; Activating genes; Creating new RNA, including those with regulating functions; Creating new proteins; Creating new metabolites or increasing metabolites to toxic levels; Activating dormant viruses; and Creating new viruses by recombining viral genes in GM inserts with those in the host genome.

What The Heck Is Glyphosate?

Pronounced gly’-fuh-sate, this is the chemical “active ingredient” in Roundup. (Or should we say inGREEDient?) There are 3 things to know about glyphosate:4

1. Glyphosate is a patented antibiotic (USPTO #777436). As such, it destroys beneficial gut bacteria while having no impact on harmful bacteria such as salmonella and clostridia.

Rather these thrive and destroy our children’s immune systems. Why would we eat or feed to our children foods containing unprescribed antibiotics?

2. Glyphosate is a chelator. Glyphosate interacts with nutrients, grabbing them and making them unavailable as nutrients.

These essential nutrients include calcium, magnesium, manganese, iron, zinc, potassium, and selenium as well as vitamins.

Don Huber, PhD, internationally recognized plant pathologist, warns that glyphosate gives plants a kind of AIDS as it likewise destroys the soil.5 It has similar effects in our bodies, weakening the immune system.

Nutrient deficiency is a consistent variable in cancer patients. Cancer has become the number one killer of children in America today. Nearly 9000 children are dying of cancer annually in the US.

3. Glyphosate is an endocrine disruptor, a DNA mutagen, which “can cause liver and kidney damage and reproductive effects”. (It., Ed. – Quote is from the EPA Glyphosate Fact Sheet.)

We have already mentioned the shocking numbers of infant deaths and the skyrocketing infertility rate.

(In a recent talk about GMOs and glyphosate, farmer Howard Vlieger reported that there are now 14 infertility clinics for every one that existed 20 years ago.)

What The Heck Is Glyphosate?


4 According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), “glyphosate is an organic solid of odorless white crystals.

It is a non-selective herbicide used on many food and non-food crops as well as non-crop areas such as roadsides.

When applied at lower rates, it serves as a plant growth regulator. The most common uses include control of broadleaf weeds and grasses in: hay/pasture, soybeans, field corn; ornamentals, lawns, turf, forest plantings, greenhouses, rights-of-way.” It appears on the EPA’s List of Contaminants.

5 An Emeritus Professor of Plant Pathology at Purdue University, Huber has over 40 years medical military intelligence experience.

He had the unique job of studying, monitoring, and reporting to military intelligence pathogenic threats to our food system and to the human population.

Dr. Huber understands and spent a lifetime studying plant and soil pathogens, bio-warfare, and protecting our nation’s food supply.

Children Are The Collateral Damage Of Glyphosate Use

Although all three glyphosate effects are working simultaneously, its capacity as an antibiotic is particularly dangerous to children.

Inadequate numbers of beneficial bacteria relate directly to the development of both illness and autism. This is because 70% of our immune system is supplied by our gut bacteria. Children are especially susceptible to illness with a weakened immune system.

It bears repeating that today 1 out of 2 American children has some form of chronic illness.

Some dysfunctions of the digestive tract are directly associated with deficient gut bacteria. These include food intolerance, food allergies, GERD, colitis, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), and Crohn’s disease.

Zen reports that food allergies have increased 400%, now affecting nearly 7 million children while food intolerance affects 24.7 million.

Diagnoses of colitis have tripled in the last 10 years, and there has been a 79% increase in the diagnosis of Crohn’s disease in children.

A damaged gut means an inability to digest and assimilate food correctly. Of grave importance is the disruption by glyphosate in the production of essential amino acids. The affected amino acids include methionine, phenylalanine, tyrosine, and tryptophan.

Here is a pertinent example. Tryptophan is an essential amino acid (a protein building block that we have to ingest – or eventually die from the lack of it.)

Tryptophan is a precursor for two well-known neurotransmitters: serotonin and melatonin. In 2009, German researchers established that a lack of serotonin in the pancreas causes diabetes.

In the US, there are some 26 million people with diabetes. Diabetes in teenagers has increased 400% in the last 10 years! (People from the GMO Generation.)

Unlike the information about serotonin and diabetes, there is no scientific evidence that GM foods cause illness or disease.

Rather their condemnation emerges through association. In statistical terms, this is called correlation. The highest correlation statistically possible is 1. (This means 100% or a perfect correlation.)

Perhaps the strongest association between glyphosate ingestion and the occurrence of illness is between glyphosate and autism.

The numbers of children diagnosed with autism has risen concurrently with the of glyphosate applied to soy and corn crops. The correlation of autism in children to glyphosate on crops is 0.985 or 98.5%!

This nearly perfect correlation is a robust indication that some causality exists. There is a relationship between how much glyphosate children are ingesting and the occurrence of autism.

Projections are that if poison ingestion remains constant, 1 out of 2 American children will be autistic in 20 years!

When we eat food containing glyphosate residue, we are putting it in our bodies. There are 160 of these foods.6

The EPA standard for glyphosate is 0.7 parts per million (ppm) in water although pesticide manufacturers are currently seeking an increase.

When you read the food list, you will see that animals are being given feed and forage with levels 1000x higher than what we are eating. And, then, many of us eat those animals.

Children Are The Collateral Damage Of Glyphosate Use


6 A list is at Moms Across America at GMO information. Scroll down just beyond Zen’s interview with Anthony Samsel (a researcher whose highly controversial paper decrying glyphosate was published by the peer review journal Entropy).

Moms Storm The EPA!

Zen arranged for testing across the country of glyphosate residues in water, urine, and breast milk.

When results reported glyphosate in breast milk at levels 760-1600x higher than allowed in Europe’s drinking water, she went ballistic. Then, she organized Moms-Call-The-EPA Days.

Over 10,000 moms phoned and demanded that the EPA recall Roundup. Moms Across America and Thinking Moms Revolution, along with scientists, doctors, and lawyers met with the EPA and presented studies showing harm.

The only action that has been taken by the EPA is to okay the release of an even more powerful glyphosate chemical. See Siri Says.

The big wheels are difficult to turn. However, we cogs can make a difference.

With our pocketbooks, we can stop buying GM foods and instead buy organic and non-GMO foods. We can educate by encouraging our markets, our schools, and the restaurants we patronize to serve healthy non-GMO food, grown without pesticides.

That way we get the word out and stop supporting the use of these poisons and the growing of GM crops.

Most importantly, we bring the best nutritional support to our health, the health of our families, and the health of our children and grandchildren.

Moms Across America – UNITE!

“When moms learned that GMOs have been in our food for nearly 20 years without our knowledge,” says Zen Honeycutt, “we did something about it. We raised the awareness of millions.”

Mom’s Across America (Yes, MAAM!) was launched in 2013. Facebook impressions grew to 300,000 posts per week in the first four months. Why are moms so passionate about everybody knowing about GMOs and glyphosate?

Aware moms know these substances make our children sick, and they want other moms to know.

After years of living in fear for her son’s life, Zen learned about GMOs and glyphosate and their connection to food allergies and other poor health conditions. She began giving her son only GMO-free and organic foods. After eating clean food for a year, his nut allergy decreased from 19 to 0.2.

Zen took her son’s story public. She hit a nerve. On MAAM, 100s of moms testify that their children’s symptoms of autism, allergies, autoimmune disorders, asthma, IBS, obesity, and more drastically decreased or disappeared within a few weeks to a few months after going GMO free.

Moms buy 85 percent of the food and do the lion’s share of meal planning and cooking.

Moms are the source of health for their families. What Moms buy dominates the market.

Moms need to know about GMOs and the non-GMO and organic food solution. As Zen says, “Moms share because moms care. We will never stop. We will not give up. The love for our children will never end.”7

Let’s get rid of GMOs and glyphosate.

Siri Says : 

Here is something really important that we can do. AND, it’s easy. When Zen Honeycutt was on the Dr. Oz show they explained the health risks of the new herbicide-combo “Duo Enlist” being approved by the EPA.

Duo Enlist is a blend of 2,4-D and glyphosate. 2,4-D is an ingredient that was used in Agent Orange!

Andrew Kimbrell, executive director for Center for Food Safety stated, “2,4-D resistant crops pose a monumental threat to our nation’s agricultural, environmental, and human health.” 

Dr. Oz, Zen, every environmental organization spokesperson, and I urge you to sign a petition to President Obama (link follows) urging him to override the EPA. 100,000 signatures will trigger a response from the White House. I believe we can easily top that. 


Your children, their children, and generations to come – even generations of plants and animals – will thank you. Please pass this newsletter around to everybody you know!
