3,247 Elementary Schools are Exposed to Monsanto’s Toxic Weed Killer

We know that most all ailments can be healed as we mentioned in Health, Like Everything Else is Holistic - Not Allopathic | Like any ecosystem, our bodies host trillions of bacterial cells that affect our everyday health

We must stop poisoning ourselves and this planet, we are only creating more problems for our future generations.

Is your child one of the thousands of children being exposed regularly to Monsanto’s toxic glyphosate, recently called “probably carcinogenic” by the World Health Organization?

Considering that GMO corn and soybeans are planted just about everywhere and they were created to withstand egregious amounts of toxic herbicidal spraying with Monsanto’s favorite product, Round Up, the answer to the question is likely yes. There’s no reason to guess about it though.

The Environmental Working Group (EWG) has released an interactive map that shows the amounts of glyphosate sprayed in each U.S. county and tallies the 3,247 elementary schools that are located within 1,000 feet of a GM corn or soybean field as well as the 487 schools that are within 200 feet of toxic glyphosate.

You can click on any county on the map (via the EWG resource, not the image below) to see how much GMO corn and soy acreage is grown in an area, as well as the number of nearby elementary schools. Does your child attend one?


Thousands of children attend these schools that are mere feet away from a known cancer-causing agent. If you think fields blanketed in these chemicals is safe – just wait another decade and watch the number of autism, childhood cancer, reproductive problems, and gut devastation cases absolutely explode.

What’s worse is that glyphosate has given rise to a whole additional class of herbicides since it didn’t do the job it was so heavily marketed to do. Superweeds are now taking over the American Midwest, and elsewhere.

There are also 15 states outlined on the EWG’s map, running through the center of the country, that the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has approved to be sprayed with Dow AgroSciences’ Enlist Duo – a combination of glyphosate and 2,4-D. This toxic pesticide is sprayed on GMO corn and soybeans engineered to tolerate both toxic chemicals, marketed as weed killers.

Meanwhile, retail giants have decided to remove all glyphosate-containing products from their stores.

Just ten states account for 53 percent of the total acreage planted with GMO corn and soy, but no state is safe as long as Monsanto, Dow, Syngenta, and Bayer are allowed to call the shots.glyphosate_elementary-schools
