Glyphosate, Gut Health, & Children: Zen Honeycutt

Power Quotes From The Show
“Not just for Moms Across America but for consumers from all around the world, this trial that found Monsanto guilty was really a triumph for all of humanity and life on this planet. This sends the message to the chemical companies that you must be responsible for your role in your products and for the outcome of what happens in the world.” – Zen Honeycutt
“I understand the wanting to believe our government, media, or regulatory agencies but what I found when I looked deeper was that these chemicals actually aren't approved by the EPA. The EPA only requires safety studies on one ingredient in a product and there could be 50 different ingredients. Since the 1980s, we have come to understand that the other ingredients in RoundUp besides glyphosate are a thousand times more toxic than glyphosate. Not to say that glyphosate alone isn't harmful but the other chemicals are a thousand times more toxic and they have never been approved by the EPA. So, to say that the product is safe and to just trust the product that's on the shelf is safe to use around your kids and pets is a perception that was created with brilliant marketing by Monsanto to mislead the public. Their claims don't have a scientific foundation and are not based on anything or that's been presented to the EPA.” – Zen Honeycutt
“People are realizing that agriculture has had an addiction to these chemical cocktails and by shining the light on glyphosate, it's become known what's happening in the food system so that people can choose to opt out of this chemical monopoly. We can choose to eat organic, grow our own food, and to know our farmers. I call this the beginning of the end of this chemical era.” – Zen Honeycutt
“The monocrop culture which is based in the United States is really a way for us to export more produce. That act of exporting monocrops to a third world country doesn't actually help them. It may feed them temporarily but it makes them dependent on another country rather than establishing their own local food systems and sustainability. So, it actually decreases jobs, productivity, community, health, and their ability to have access to diverse, local foods.” – Zen Honeycutt
