National School Lunch Testing for Glyphosate, Pesticides, Heavy Metals, Hormones and Nutrients Revealed


Return to Press Releases

Press Release

Asheville, NC Moms Across America announces a nationwide project measuring pesticides, heavy metals, veterinary drugs, hormones and nutrient test results of 43 school lunches gathered from public schools in 15 states in the United States. The initiative was conducted by Moms Across America – mothers, fathers and students who gathered school lunch samples. The testing was funded by Moms Across America supporters and Children's Health Defense.

Moms Across America Director Zen Honeycutt stated:

"These test results of the school lunches show us that we have a national crisis on our hands. Our government is allowing our children to be poisoned with a shocking number of toxins that contribute to various health, behavioral and learning issues. In addition, the nutrient density of the food is almost completely deficient, leaving our children's bodies starving for nutrients, unable to develop properly and lacking nutrients that their brains need to learn and make sound decisions. If our government cares about America remaining a superpower and a prosperous nation, it must immediately take action to supply organically grown, nutrient-dense food to our nation's children."

The results show that the food America's children eat at school is unsafe, toxic and low in nutrients:

  • Of the 43 school items tested, 41, or 95.3%, had detectable levels of glyphosate weed killer, the most widely used herbicide in the world, a known carcinogen.
  • The highest level of glyphosate and AMPA (AMPA is glyphosate's breakdown and can be even more toxic) were found in a beef taco with soft tortilla at 286.77 ng/g and in pizza at 156.14 ng/g.
  • 28 of the 43 school meal samples, or 65.1%, contained wheat ingredients.
  • 100% of the wheat products were positive with glyphosate, averaging 42.09 ng/g.
  • The average level of glyphosate in pizza was 154.51 ng/g.

Several items had very high glyphosate levels, well above 25 ng/g, which, according to animal studies, would be expected to be harmful when consumed consistently, along with other items containing glyphosate. Glyphosate has been shown to be carcinogenic, endocrine disrupting, damaging to sperm and reproductive organs, causing nervous system damage and causing liver and kidney disease.

We also tested for 220 of the most egregious pesticides:

  • 74% of the school lunch samples contained at least one of the harmful pesticides.
  • 29 different types of pesticides were present in 74% of the school lunches.
  • Thiabendazole, an immune suppressant, was found in 27.9% of the samples.
  • Piperonal Butoxide, a developmental toxin that causes birth defects and neurodevelopment disruptions, was in 41% of the samples.
  • Pyrimethanil, which causes thyroid tumors in animals, was detected at 595.04 ppb on an apple.

Veterinary drugs, hormones and heavy metals in school lunch food are also at alarming levels:

  • 4 Veterinary drugs and hormones were found in 9 school lunch samples at levels up to 130.76 ng/g.
  • 100% of the school lunch samples contained heavy metals at levels up to 6,293 X higher than the EPA's maximum levels allowed in drinking water.
  • The majority of the samples were abysmally low in nutrients.

Without proper nutrients in food, children will not develop properly and be able to think, learn and act to their fullest potential. Proper nutrition can be instrumental in reducing and preventing learning disorders and violent behavior. Safe, non-toxic, nutrient-dense food is essential for the health of our children and the future of our nation. America should invest in healthy, safe nutrition for every child in our public schools.

The results are being released the same day as the White House is holding the first National Nutrition Conference in 50 years. It is Moms Across America's intention that the leaders of this nation address the issue of toxic agrochemical use in the food supply and its impact on nutrient density, human health and our children.

36% Higher Risk of Asthma in Some Kids Who Had Vaccine-Related Aluminum Exposure, CDC Study Shows


federally funded study released Tuesday reported a "positive association" between "vaccine-related aluminum exposure" and "persistent asthma" in children 24-59 months old.

Overall, kids in the study who received 3 milligrams or more of vaccine-related aluminum had at least a 36% higher risk of developing persistent asthma than kids who got less than 3, the study's lead author, Dr. Matthew F. Daley, told The Associated Press.

Children’s Health Defense Applauds Victory for Louisiana Parents and Students After COVID Vaccine Mandates for Schoolchildren Repealed


Return to Press Releases

Press Release

For Immediate Release

Baton Rouge, LA – On Tuesday, the Louisiana Department of Health (LDH) officially repealed the state's requirement that children receive the COVID vaccine in order to attend school. Governor John Bel Edwards spent nearly six months overriding the legislature's passage of HCR3 in May which called for an end to the mandate, vetoing the bill and continuing the mandate through LDH.

The repeal comes after Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. and Children's Health Defense (CHD) joined Dr. Robert Malone, Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry and thousands of parents earlier this year to oppose the mandate.

After this week's repeal, Landry filed a motion to dismiss the lawsuit he brought against the governor (Crews v. Edwards) which sought to have the vaccine mandate enjoined. Landry issued a statement Wednesday which reads in part:

"Today is the culmination of hard work by so many concerned parents throughout Louisiana. This is the direct result of moms, dads, grandparents, and guardians fighting for what is right. I thank Representative Raymond Crews, Health Freedom Louisiana, the Bayou Mama Bears, Town Hall Baton Rouge, Children's Health Defense and all those from across Louisiana that stood with us for parental choice.

"Child medical decisions should be made by their guardians, not the government. I hope this health freedom victory reminds everyone what can happen when we all work together. When citizens are engaged and get involved, their government will listen."

Landry is currently involved in another case along with the state of Missouri against President Biden and other high-ranking officials for allegedly colluding with social media giants to censor and suppress free speech related to COVID-19 and other important topics.

"What happened this week in Louisiana should inspire people across the country to take a stand against arbitrary and sometimes dangerous government mandates," said CHD president and general counsel Mary Holland. "We all have a responsibility to call out government officials when they overstep their boundaries if we're to maintain the freedom the founders of our country fought so hard to establish."

Retraction — Hydroxychloroquine or Chloroquine With or Without a Macrolide for Treatment of COVID19: A Multinational Registry Analysis


After publication of our Lancet Article, several concerns were raised with respect to the veracity of the data and analyses conducted by Surgisphere Corporation and its founder and our co-author, Sapan Desai, in our publication. We launched an independent third-party peer review of Surgisphere with the consent of Sapan Desai to evaluate the origination of the database elements, to confirm the completeness of the database, and to replicate the analyses presented in the paper.

Our independent peer reviewers informed us that Surgisphere would not transfer the full dataset, client contracts, and the full ISO audit report to their servers for analysis as such transfer would violate client agreements and confidentiality requirements. As such, our reviewers were not able to conduct an independent and private peer review and therefore notified us of their withdrawal from the peer-review process.

We always aspire to perform our research in accordance with the highest ethical and professional guidelines. We can never forget the responsibility we have as researchers to scrupulously ensure that we rely on data sources that adhere to our high standards. Based on this development, we can no longer vouch for the veracity of the primary data sources. Due to this unfortunate development, the authors request that the paper be retracted.
We all entered this collaboration to contribute in good faith and at a time of great need during the COVID-19 pandemic. We deeply apologise to you, the editors, and the journal readership for any embarrassment or inconvenience that this may have caused.

#No5GNearSchools — Keep Cell Towers Away From Schools and Demand 5G Safety Studies


Our kids need your help to protect them from harmful 5G and cell tower radiation! Schools are accepting financial incentives from telecom giants to add cell towers to their properties. In true Big Tech fashion, corporate profits have taken priority over public health.

Children's Health Defense (CHD) wants to stop the uncontrolled rollout of 5G and cell tower equipment near schools and residential neighborhoods. We need your help to force legislative action to stop the ever-increasing risk to our children caused by dangerous radiofrequency (RF) radiation emitted by this equipment.

Contact your elected officials today to demand they introduce and support federal and state legislation banning cell towers and small cells from being on or near school grounds.

The Issue

School districts around the country are risking our children's health and safety by partnering with telecom giants Verizon, T-Mobile and AT&T to install cell towers directly on school grounds in exchange for monetary gains. Yet, scientific literature confirms the harms of RF radiation on children's health, and no long-term studies exist that show 5G is safe. In fact, experts in the fields of human health and telecommunications recommend a minimum distance of 1640 feet between cell towers and school grounds.

Scientific Evidence of Harm

Scientific literature clearly documents the adverse health effects of RF exposure, including developmental delays, memory and attention deficits, heightened risk for type 2 diabetes and changes to the blood predictive of cancer. Learn all about the health risks of wireless technology here.

Cell towers and small cells also pose considerable fire safety threats, compounding the existing risks to our children when placed near schools.

Contact your legislators today and demand they introduce and support federal and state legislation to ban cell towers/small cells from being on or near school grounds in order to protect our children from the harms caused by RF radiation.

Take Action

Complete the form below to email federal, state and local officials and tell them our children are not guinea pigs!

Make follow-up phone calls to each representative asking if they've received your email. Use this call as an opportunity to express your opposition to the proliferation of wireless cellular infrastructure on and near school grounds. You can find helpful resources for these conversations here.

For more news and information about RF radiation — and what you can do to protect your children — please visit the Electromagnetic Radiation & Wireless section of CHD's website.

Thank you for using your voice to make a difference for our children.

RFK, Jr. Responds to News of Biden Administration Working in Tandem With Social Media Giants to Censor COVID Statements They Deemed Misinformation


Return to Press Releases

Press Release

For Immediate Release

Washington, DC – Discovery documents released Thursday reveal the Biden administration and its federal agencies were holding secret meetings with Big Tech to censor COVID-19 statements they deemed misinformation.

Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., #2 on the "Disinformation Dozen" list, and Children's Health Defense (CHD), are publically characterized with other individuals and organizations as spreading misinformation and have been subsequently censored, shadow banned and permanently deplatformed from social media outlets. These actions have denied CHD and RFK, Jr. the ability to provide over a million followers access to their information.

In response, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. said:

"I'm astonished that any elected Democrat would be so estranged from our nation's history and values as to consider it acceptable for a president to pressure publishers to censor his critics.

"It's shocking that a U.S. president would involve the FBI and Homeland Security in efforts to quash dissent. Has no one in the White House read Thomas Paine or Orwell or Huxley or Heinlein or Arthur Koestler or Hannah Arendt or Solzhenitsyn? What do they think the lessons were that we were supposed to have learned from Watergate? From McCarthyism? From Vietnam?

"The Framers placed the right of free expression in the First Amendment precisely to guarantee Americans our sacred right to criticize our government. The First Amendment is not there to safeguard popular speech or government-approved speech. The Framers specifically wanted to protect speech that the government finds inconvenient or even detestable. And they included no pandemic exception in the Constitution!"

Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. was deplatformed by Instagram and Children's Health Defense (CHD) was removed from Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and TikTok for posting content that the platforms claim doesn't follow their "Community Guidelines/Standards on Misinformation."

Children's Health Defense is in an ongoing censorship lawsuit with Meta filed Aug. 2020.
