Petition to Governor Jerry Brown

Governor Brown: Ban Glyphosate in California!

Did you know that one of the most widely-used herbicides in history, sprayed on our food crops, streets, playgrounds, and parks, has been proven to cause serious harm to our health? I’m concerned about my children’s health and safety, and Monsanto’s Glyphosate  weed killer (Roundup) is putting all of ours at risk. Join our campaign asking Governor Jerry Brown to ban the use of Glyphosate in California. In fact, Glyphosate is considered a carcinogenic by the WHO and even the California State Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment. Glyphosate herbicides have also been found to be linked to various cancers specifically lymphoma, are endocrine disruptors, neurotoxic, and a cause of liver disease. Yet this dangerous chemical is so pervasive that glyphosate is now found in our children's urine, mother's milk, our bloodstreams, and our food, beverages, water and more. There is a global movement taking place to ban this toxic chemical, and we’re asking California to lead the way for the U.S.  Other countries have begun to take action to protect their health, and the health of their children. Sri Lanka, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Bahrain, Oman and El Salvador have banned glyphosate. France is phasing out the use of glyphosate herbicides in agriculture over the next 5 years completely. In Europe, after 1 million Europeans requested a ban, 72% of the Members of the European Parliament voted to ban glyphosate and EU Member states have refused to renew the license. Sign my petition asking Governor Brown to ban glyphosate in our great state! To further support a glyphosate ban in California contact zen@momsacrossamerica.org

Petition to Donald Trump, Food and Drug Administration

STOP ALLOWING COMPANIES TO PROFIT OFF OF CAUSING PEOPLE CANCER, DEFECTS AND DEATH !!!!!

END THE USES OF GMO PRODUCTS IN AMERICA !!!!! RECALL THE MONSANTO PROTECTION ACT !!!!! STOP POISONS FROM BEING PUT INTO OUR FOODS !!! STOP ALLOWING COMPANIES TO PROFIT OFF OF CAUSING PEOPLE CANCER, DEFECTS AND DEATH !!!!! 10 REASONS TO BAN GMO PRODUCTS OF ALL KINDS : 1. Multiple Toxins From GMOs Detected In Maternal and Fetal Blood 2. DNA From Genetically Modified Crops Can Be Transferred Into Humans Who Eat Them 3. New Study Links GMOs To Gluten Disorders That Affect 18 Million Americans 4. Study Links Genetically Modified Corn to Rat Tumors 5. Glyphosate Induces Human Breast Cancer Cells Growth via Estrogen Receptors 6. Glyphosate Linked To Birth Defects 7. Study Links Glyphosate To Autism, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s 8. Chronically Ill Humans Have Higher Glyphosate Levels Than Healthy Humans 9. Studies Link GMO Animal Feed to Severe Stomach Inflammation and Enlarged Uteri in Pigs 10. GMO risk assessment is based on very little scientific evidence in the sense that the testing methods recommended are not adequate to ensure safety. Genetically modified foods or GM foods, also genetically engineered foods, are foods produced from organisms that have had changes introduced into their DNA using the methods of genetic engineering. Genetic engineering techniques allow for the introduction of new traits as well as greater control over traits than previous methods such as selective breeding and mutation breeding. GMO foods pose a risk to humans, animals, and the environmental.!!!!! “Several animal studies indicate serious health risks associated with genetically modified (GM) food (AAEM 2009),” including infertility, immune problems, accelerated aging, faulty insulin regulation, and changes in major organs and the gastrointestinal system. The AAEM has asked physicians to advise all patients to avoid GM foods. GM plants, such as soybean, corn, cottonseed, and canola, have had foreign genes forced into their DNA. The inserted genes come from species, such as bacteria and viruses, which have never been in the human food supply. The genetic engineering process creates massive collateral damage, causing mutations in hundreds or thousands of locations throughout the plant’s DNA. Natural genes can be deleted or permanently turned on or off, and hundreds may change their behavior. Even the inserted gene can be damaged or rearranged, and may create proteins that can trigger allergies or promote disease. GMOs and liver problems : Rats fed GM potatoes had smaller, partially atrophied livers.The livers of rats fed GM canola were 12-16% heavier.GM soy altered mouse liver cells in ways that suggest a toxic insult. The changes reversed after they switched to non-GM soy. GMOs, reproductive problems, and infant mortality : More than half the babies of mother rats fed GM soy died within three weeks. Male rats and mice fed GM soy had changed testicles, including altered young sperm cells in the mice. The DNA of mouse embryos functioned differently when their parents ate GM soy The longer mice were fed GM corn, the less babies they had, and the smaller their babies were. Babies of female rats fed GM soy were considerably smaller, and more than half died within three weeks (compared to 10% of the non-GM soy controls). Female rats fed GM soy showed changes in their ovaries and uterus. By the third generation, most hamsters fed GM soy were unable to have babies. THIS IS THE FUTURE OF PEOPLE AROUND THE WORLD IF WE CONTINUE TO NEGLECT THE DANGERS OF USING GENETICALLY MODIFIED ORGANISMS (GMO) PLEASE JOIN THE REST OF THE WORLD ON SAVING THE LIVES OF OUR LOVED ONES.... LIFE IS TO PRECIOUS AND TO SHORT...HELP PUT AN END TO THESE CORPORATIONS WHO HAVE NO REGARD TO THE HEALTH AND SAFETY OF PEOPLE AROUND THE WORLD!!!!! WE CAN MAKE A CHANGE!!! YOUR VOICE DOES MATTER!!! STAND UP AND MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THE WORLD !!! PROTECT EACH OTHER!!!

Petition to The Honorable John Carney

Ban the use of all glyphosate based herbicides

Governor Carney Ban Glyphosate in Delaware! Glyphosate herbicides or Monsanto's RoundUp weed killer, the most widely used herbicide in history, has recently been proven to cause serious harm to life. Glyphosate has contaminated our planet, and is now found in our children's urine, mother's milk, our bloodstreams, and our food and water. In 2015 the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) of the World Health Organization found that glyphosate “is a probable human carcinogen”.In July of 2017 the California State Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) added glyphosate to its prop 65 list of known carcinogens.In October of 2017, after over 1 million Europeans requested a ban, 72% of the Members of the European Parliament voted to BAN glyphosate and EU Member states have refused to renew the license.Sri Lanka and the Six Gulf States (Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Bahrain, and Oman) and Malta have banned glyphosate. Many others are in the process of doing so. France has banned glyphosate in public parks immediately and will phase out the use of glyphosate herbicides in agriculture and landscaping use over the next 5 years completely. We ask our great state of Delaware to protect our citizens as well. Glyphosate herbicides have also been found to be linked to various cancers specifically lymphoma, are endocrine disruptors, neurotoxic, and a cause of liver disease. Global studies show that we are routinely exposed to dangerous levels of glyphosate. Millions of citizens in Delaware come in contact with glyphosate daily. The American Academy of Pediatrics has stated that our children are the most vulnerable to pesticides, we need to take action to protect the future of our state.  Over 1000 Americans are currently suing Monsanto, the manufacturer of glyphosate herbicides, for non Hodgkin Lymphoma. The Justice Department is investigating Monsanto for corruption, coverups, and collusion with the EPA in relation to the carcinogenic effects of glyphosate. Please join the Moms Across America, Organic Consumers Association, Institute for Responsible Technology, Thinking Moms Revolution, and thousands of others in ridding our state of glyphosate by signing the petition below: From Kelly A.
