BREAKING: Alarming Levels of Monsanto's Weedkiller Found in Popular Foods!

Help us hit our $100,000 End-of-Year goal and fight back against Big Ag and Monsanto >>

Last month, in our new groundbreaking report, Glyphosate: Unsafe on Any Plate, we found alarming levels of glyphosate in common foods such as Cheerios, Doritos, Stacy's Pita Chips, Oreos and more -- the same glyphosate that’s the active ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup -- the most heavily used weedkiller in food and agricultural production in human history.

The report shows that glyphosate can lead to potentially devastating health effects such as an increased risk for cancer, non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, Parkinson’s, leaky gut, irritable bowel syndrome, ADD, serious reproductive and neurological problems and kidney and liver diseases. Alarmingly, previous independent research has found that people who are already chronically ill showed significantly higher glyphosate residue in their urine than healthy people.

These alarming glyphosate residues in popular American foods have given us grounds to demand a federal investigation from the FDA into the likely harmful effects of glyphosate as well as demanding that they investigate the relationships between the regulators and the regulated corporations like Monsanto, DuPont and Dow Chemical, which too often minimize or cover up the harm to the public that are being exposed to an increasing number of toxic chemicals in our food.

We’re only able to do this kind of industry-shattering work with your support -- and we have a lot more planned for next year, but only if we hit our fundraising goals.

Can you make a tax-deductible donation today so we can hit our $100,000 End-of-Year goal? We can’t keep holding the EPA and agribusiness accountable in 2017 if we miss our goal - and we’re still $54,432 short.

Patrick – Don't miss this chance to have your gift Matched 2 to 1 to help build the movement protect organic farmers and to defeat Monsanto!

Your tax deductible donation will be matched 2 to 1 until Midnight December 31st!

Chemicals are destroying our environment and finding their way onto our plates because Big Food and companies like Monsanto are the ones paying for the studies that claim they’re safe. This is why the work we do is so critical.

Making a difference is simple: you contribute to Food Democracy Now! and we conduct independent research and advocacy campaigns to hold our regulatory agencies, like the EPA, accountable. That’s how change will happen for families, farmers and our environment.

Make a tax-deductible contribution to help us hit our $100,000 End-of-Year goal so Food Democracy Now! can continue to be the voice of the future for our health with research like our ground-breaking glyphosate testing and report.

Thanks for your support, we couldn't do this work without you!

Dave, Lisa and the Food Democracy Now! team

PS -- It’s been an amazing 8 years, but what we’re able to do next year will depend on what we can raise in the next week. Will you chip in what you can today to make sure this important work can continue into 2017?
