GMO Free Lancaster County Offers Breast Milk Testing for Local Mothers
Apr 29, 2015 11:37PM
As part of GMO Free Lancaster County’s campaign to ban the use of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and associated pesticides, they are testing the breast milk of local mothers for the presence of glyphosate, the active ingredient in Monsanto’s flagship herbicide, Roundup. The Glyphosate Testing Project is made possible by the generous financial contribution of Tree of Life Health Ministries.
GMO Free Lancaster County—a grassroots, nonprofit organization, with the mission to educate about the dangers of genetically modified foods and promote organic alternatives—plans to have test results available to share with the community at their fourth annual March Against Monsanto, to be held from noon to 5 p.m., May 23, at Lancaster Penn Square. The march will be followed by a rally and family fun fair at nearby Lancaster Square, which will include presentations, live music, an all-day farmers market, food, children’s activities and a seed sharing table.
