Ann Arbor, Michigan - Most people have heard of the poison lead water delivered to Flint, Michigan residents. Despite gross negligence, this criminal assault finds no one held accountable, and the populous abandoned and ignored. The many waterborne toxins have long-term and permanent effects that require care which transcends typical western medicine thinking and treatments. The people need and deserve knowledgeable, loving care.

   Since 2017 the Rudolf Steiner Health Center has traveled to Flint providing free, effective detox cleansing treatments to those affected, addressing the intestines, liver, kidneys, strengthening metabolism and the immune system. For the Steiner Health Center to be accessible, useful, and trusted by Flint residents, they purchased an ambulance. Before doing so they were limited to caring for folks in churches and fields. Eden Foods helped sponsor this in a collaboration of compassion. The Flint Healing Mobile Unit ambulance was aptly named Compassion on Wheels.

   Some techniques being used by the Health Center are liver compresses, footbaths, herbal teas, vitamin and mineral supplements, and good foods to support all the body systems. Flax seed, activated charcoal, bentonite clay, chlorella, yarrow, homeopathy, horsetail, milk thistle, dandelion, caraway, chicory, St. John's wort, and licorice to detox and strengthen Flint residents.

   On July 15 Eden Foods' staff enjoyed the pleasure of meeting with The Rudolf Steiner Health Center staff and interns who are making this care happen. Through an existing internship program, working with medically and financially needy patients, they field a skillful, compassionate care crew.

   Eden Foods is pleased being associated with this work.

Major food companies like General Mills continue to sell popular children’s breakfast cereals and other foods contaminated with troubling levels of glyphosate, the cancer-causing ingredient in the herbicide Roundup. The weedkiller, produced by Bayer-Monsanto, was detected in all 21 oat-based cereal and snack products sampled in a new round of testing commissioned by the Environmental Working Group. All but four products contained levels of glyphosate higher than what EWG scientists consider protective for children’s health with a sufficient margin of safety.

The new tests confirm and amplify EWG’s findings from tests in July and October of last year, with levels of glyphosate consistently above EWG’s children’s health benchmark. The two highest levels of glyphosate were found in Honey Nut Cheerios Medley Crunch, with 833 parts per billion, or ppb, and Cheerios, with 729 ppb. The EWG children’s health benchmark is 160 ppb.

EWG purchased products via online retail sites. Approximately 300 grams of each product were packed in our Washington, D.C., office and shipped to Anresco Laboratories in San Francisco. Glyphosate levels were analyzed by a liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry method described here.

Since 2015, the International Agency for Research on Cancer, a part of the World Health Organization, has classified glyphosate as “probably carcinogenic to humans.” In 2017, glyphosate was classified as a known carcinogen by California’s Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment.

Since last August, three California juries have awarded more than $2.2 billion total in three separate verdicts against Bayer-Monsanto over claims that Roundup caused cancer and that Monsanto knew about the risks for decades and went to extraordinary lengths to cover it up.

Glyphosate is used mostly as a weedkiller on genetically modified corn and soybeans. But it is also sprayed on oats just before harvest as a drying agent, or desiccant. It kills the crop, drying it out so it can be harvested sooner, which increases the likelihood that glyphosate ends up in foods children love to eat.

EWG and 19 food companies recently delivered more than 80,000 names on a petition urging the Environmental Protection Agency to sharply limit glyphosate residues allowed on oats and prohibit its use as a preharvest drying agent.

All but one of the tested products contained glyphosate at levels higher than what EPA previously allowed on oats, in 1993. EWG’s petition, currently under consideration by EPA, calls on the agency to return to its health-protective 1993 standard. But it could take years for EPA to act, and the agency has been caught colluding with Monsanto to promote the claim that the chemical is safe.

The only way to quickly remove this cancer-causing weedkiller from foods marketed to children is for companies like General Mills and Quaker to use oats from farmers who do not use glyphosate as a desiccant.

More than 236,000 people have signed a petition directed at these food companies, calling on them to take action to protect consumers’ health.
