It’s Not Often That I Screenshot Testicles For You

But sometimes a pair of frog gonads nearly bursting female eggs says it way better than I ever could!

You see, while corporations quibble about the so-called safety of their products, lakes and streams are filling up with all the answers we need: alligators with tiny penises, male fish who produce eggs, and more. In a recent TED talk presentation, award winning documentary filmmaker Penelope Jagessar Chaffer breaks down what these poor amphibians have in common: They’re bathing in our old bathwater and soaking up compounds like atrazine, an herbicide the EU had the sense to ban in the same year that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency re-approved it for use. (And use it we do, to the tune of about 800 million pounds a year!)

Mamas, right now as you and I sit here there are about 30,00-50,000 chemicals coursing through our bodies, many of which where lathered into our hair before we could write our ABC’s: potent hormone disruptors, formaldehyde and cancer-causing 1,4 dioxane to name a few (source).

These chemicals are known to bioaccumulate and be passed from mama to baby, increasing each generations chances of a particular penile defect in newborn boys, infertility and even cancer.  And unfortunately, these chemicals appear to do their worst when introduced to the developing endocrine systems of small children, and things haven’t changed all that much since you and I were kids. According to this report, many chemicals of concern are still in the #1 trusted brand many parents use every day.

Fortunately, There’s A Company That’s Better Than #1

Because when it comes to numbers and your health, zero is the one you want to see. Earth Mama Angel Baby has developed an entire product line with an Environmental Working Group toxicity rating of ZERO, a distinction I don’t believe any other personal care company holds. They use absolutely no artificial preservatives, fragrance, petrochemicals, SLS, parabens, 1,4-Dioxane, Quaternium-15, formaldehyde, phthalates, nut oils (which some people are allergic to) or dyes in their products EVER,

But of course it’s not just about what they leave out that makes them special, it’s what they put in. I love their carefully blended organic butters, herbal salves, bath teas, soothing essential oils and gentle cleansers. In fact, their shampoo is one of the only commercial brands I will use!

Yes On Prop 37 Giveaway: $100+ Birth & Baby Kit from Earth Mama Angel Baby

So here’s the deal: I’m going to tell you how to enter in a minute, but first I want you to know why I’m hosting this giveaway in the first place.  All that stuff I told you about parabens is about as scary as white, fuzzy dust bunnies next to what will likely be THE DECIDING ISSUE of our generation, and I need your help.

You see, it’s one thing to knowingly dump toxins into our environment that cause miscarriages, birth defects, neurological defects and other problems – a practice companies participate in every day. On the other hand, it’s a whole other kind of evil to genetically engineer plants to make their own pesticides. That juicy ear of corn on America’s dinner table is more than a genetic freak – it’s a biological weapon. Unlike the pesticides we manufacture and then ban, the plant often contains it’s own pesticide “factory.” We cannot control it out in the wild or even in our bodies where it can continue to function and produce pesticides. Sadly, most people have no idea they are eating them.

On November 6, we have a chance to change that. California residents will vote on Prop 37, an initiative that would force the biotech companies that brought you Agent Orange, DDT and PVC to label their “safe” foods (which, um, cause tumors like this in mice, cause normal pink testicles to turn dark blue, reduces fertility and even reduces infant survival rates. And causes hair to grow in the mouth, but that’s just cosmetic huh?)

California is the eight-hundred pound gorilla in the U.S. marketplace (aka the 8th largest economy in the world), so winning there could effectively turn the tide on GMO’s. Large food companies most likely will not want to deal with the logistical nightmare of dual labeling, so what goes for them will probably go for the rest of us, yay!

Consumers in Europe and over 40 countries around the world have rejected GMO’s when given the choice, and it can happen here. Some banned them with legislation, but that’s not likely here. A few months ago Vermont legislators introduced a bill that would require manufacturers to label products made with GMO’s and prevent them from touting them as “natural,” “naturally made,” “naturally grown” or “all natural.”

In response, Monsanto threatened to sue the entire state of Vermont . . . and the legislators backed down.

What makes the California bill so unique is that citizens got it on the ballot, and citizens will vote on it. We don’t need to depend on the courage of legislators for this one. Recent pollings show we have about 82% support for this initiative, but don’t count your chickens yet.

Monsanto, Dupont, and even some traitorous “organic” companies have raised over $20 million to convince Californians we don’t need labeling. We have to convince them we do. For that, we need money for t.v. commercials, billboards, etc.

Earth Mama Angel Baby is standing behind this initiative. They know that as important as it is to make changes at the personal level by buying organic food and personal care products, we have to do more for the sake of future generations. That’s why they’ve donated a Birth & Baby Kit valued at over $100 to help raise funds for Yes on 37. It contains their Natural Nipple Butter, Organic Monthly Comfort Tea, Postpartum Bath Herbs, Mama Bottom Balm, New Mama Bottom Spray, Angel Baby Shampoo & Body Wash, Body Oil, Baby Bottom Balm, Lotion, and that super cute bag at the top of the page!

The only thing necessary for evil to triumph is for good men do nothing. – Edmund Burke

  1. Lara says:

    I am a SAHM on a limited budget but I support this proposition fully. I sign petitions, talk to friends and family (and anyone who will listen, lol!) about how import it is for us to NOT eat Genetically Modified food. We are not guinea pigs, and even guinea pigs shouldn’t be eating GM food! We need to talk control of our health and let corporations know that we will not stand for them experimenting on our bodies.

  2. Ashley says:

    This is so important for future generations and everyone’s health. This cannot be undone–it must be prevented!

  3. Jennifer Rodriguez says:

    I oppose GMO because they are killing us. These companies that produce these GMO’s either don’t test its products enough or they hide their findings because they don’t want us to know. Either way, these GMO’s are freaking havoc on us and we have a right to know if GMO’s are in our food. I am spreading the message to everyone with ears to hear me. If nothing else, at least they van make an informed decision on what they buy.

  4. Maia says:

    I support prop 37 for the health our children and theirs for generations to come! GMO’s are a scary nightmare science experiment that I don’t want to be a part of, and labeling will help us to regain our power to be informed! Thanks for these posts!!! :)

  5. JennB says:

    I completely supportthe consumer’s right to know what their food and products are made of. I love that Earth Mama Angel Baby’s product are so pure and that I can trust that I am using the best products! Thank You!!!

  6. Laura says:

    I support prop 37 because I think it’s important for people to know when the food contains GMOs. I know it would make my life alot easier if I could easily see on any packaging whether they were there or not.

  7. I support this initiative wholeheartedly! I’ve donated already and I want to donate more. It’s something I am so passionate about. I mean, are they really trying to slowly sterilize the population??? It’s scary.
    I’ve shared tons of info on my Facebook page and Iv’e contacted my friends and family who live in California. I’ve also been praying. a lot. “And all things you ask for in prayer, believing, you will receive.” Matthew 21:22

  8. Jen K. says:

    I’ve been closely following the Prop 37 for a while now…I’m terrified of what I’ve been eating since 1996 (unknowingly) and I’m even more terrified for my kids. Ignorance WAS bliss, but there’s no going back for me. LABEL GMOs!

  9. Carrie says:

    I believe everyone has a right to know what is in their food and that is why I support prop 37. I only wish I lived in California so I could vote for it! Fortunately I have a lot of friends and family there and I have been encouraging them to all vote YES! So goes California, so goes the rest of the states! I am equally passionate about organic and sustainable practices as well as natural body care and cleaning products, which is why I make a lot of my own. I do it for my family and the the future of my children as well as for the future of our planet.

  10. What an important proposition!!! I live in Oregon and am grateful for the availability of organic cropshares so we know who is growing our produce. Love Earth Mama Angel Baby too!!! They are awesome!!

  11. Eve G says:

    Wow. There are too many reasons that I support Prop 37, I could go on forever, but ultimately: health. Our health, future generations, the animals and natural synergy of the ecosystem, etc etc!!

  12. Kaylyn says:

    Hey I already receive your great newsletter and read all of your posts! And I fully support proposition 37 because it is unethical and unacceptable to try to sneak genetically engineered food into the unsuspecting public’s diet for money. I have a right to know what is in the food I am purchasing and to decide whether or not I want to consume GMOs. Large corporations making millions (if not more) off of the GMOs don’t get to make that decision for me or my family!

  13. Vivian says:

    Supporting prop 37 insures my kids get food that is not pumped full of hormones.

  14. Jennifer Beach says:

    I dontated $10 but asked that it not be published on their website which I am not sure if that will affect it or not. I hope this passes because we all have a right to know what we are putting into our bodies. I want to know my children are given the best chance possible and that will only happen if they no longer have to worry about ingesting poison unknowingly.

  15. Bri says:

    Great post! This is so important and now that I have my own 4 month old baby boy to care for, things like this stand out to me even more. I support prop 37 for not only the health of my child, but the health for our future generations to come.

  16. Kristina Vieweg says:

    I support Prop 37 because in order for people to make the best and most accurate food decisions for their families all ingredients must be disclosed! It’s not fair to try and hide information to paying consumers

  17. Rebecca says:

    I fully support this proposition. I am a member of a discussion group about healthy living and we talk a lot about GMO’s and Prop. 37 comes up often. I will be posting a link to this post on the group and hopefully there will be others who come here and will be able to donate.
    It is so important to me, as a mama of 5, for my family to be able to grow up healthy and live life without worrying about disease/illness, etc because of what they are eating. Their future depends on our efforts now.

  18. Ashley says:

    I support prop 37 because my children deserve to grow up as healthy as possible. We are already subject to enough chemicals in the air we breathe so we deserve the opportunity to control as much as we can!

  19. Judy says:

    I fully support Prop 37 because I strongly feel that we have a right to know what kind of food we are eating. We can’t make wise choices if we have nothing to go on. Of course, I would like it even better if GMO’s didn’t even exist, if they were banned like they are in many countries, but it doesn’t look like that is a possibility, so this at least gives us a choice.

  20. Holly says:

    I support Prop 37 because I believe in a perfect Creator who created exactly what our bodies needed to thrive on this earth in order to serve His eternal kingdom. We don’t need man made junk, especially not when it is poisonous!

  21. Lindsay K says:

    I support Prop 37 because we all deserve to make a choice to eat food or chemicals. I have a right to feed my family real food!

  22. Ashley H says:

    Ugh. I’ve donated to Prop 37 before it was on the ballot, now that it’s on the ballot, and to the billboard campaign. I desperately want to see GMOs labeled and ultimately phased out altogether. In addition to the health issues, it’s a horrible idea to reduce the diversity of crops in our food supply. Every single aspect of GMOs is so upsetting.

  23. […] your fair share of frog gonads filled with eggs, you just might begin to feel a bit paranoid. You may find yourself making your own shampoo […]

  24. […] your fair share of frog gonads filled with eggs, you just might begin to feel a bit paranoid. You may find yourself making your own shampoo […]

  25. Taylor says:

    I am new to this whole “real foods” issue. Before I knew about it all, I had no problem eating “modified corn starch” or “enriched flour.” Now I’m over weight and unable to get pregnant. I honestly believe that a huge contributor to both issues is that of GMOs. I’m in Wisconsin, not California but I know that a change there could influence the whole country. We don’t have money to donate, but I can still raise awareness for others! Get GMOs out of our food!

  26. Dixie says:

    It all just scares me. I don’t want to live this way. I don’t want my kids to live this way.

  27. Toni Tran says:

    Hey friends and family:

    a big ticket item on the voter guide next month is Proposition 37. If you aren’t aware about this proposition, please read up on it. It’s about labeling GMO produce. Even with limited scientific knowledge, we kn
    ow that GMO can cause health issues in laboratory animals, even death. Can you imagine not knowing whether you or your family are eating modified GMO produce?

    Shouldn’t we have the right to make a choice in what we buy? It should be a consumer’s right to know. Please make sure that we continue to have this right, please make sure you vote YES on 37. Of all the propositions on the ballot, Food Labeling is and should be important to everyone’s health.

    Thanks, Toni Tran – consumer, wife, mother, tax-paying concerned citizen socially, spiritually, and health conscious.

  28. Melissa says:

    Consumers deserve to know what we are consuming and what processes are taking place in our world. Plain and simple!

  29. I want to feed my kids healthy food. I want to know what my food is. If they change it they should have to label it.

  30. Alison says:

    We should be allowed as a free people to have the choice to put in our bodies what we want. This is a first step for us regaining our freedom….

  31. mindy says:

    I have not given my consent for my son to be involved in this experiment!

  32. Jess P. says:

    I cannot seem to find the button to finish my entry and click on above. Hope it worked. Thanks for the attention to this issue!

  33. Jesse says:

    Can you please tell me why I can’t participate, living in NY? It stated the same thing on another one as well.. It’s not a big deal, but I just don’t know why.

  34. Jesse says:

    Yep, just another reason to move from NY ;-) Thank you for the reply!

  35. Julie says:

    I support this for the upcoming generations-wish we had this years ago thanks

  36. Kathleen says:

    Not only do I fully support this proposition, I am strongly against any government method of tracking who is eating this contaminated crap that we can’t even call food. This is simply poison. Our children and our country deserve much better!

  37. Deborah says:

    I support Prop 37 because Monsanto’s lawsuits turn my stomach. I do not want to buy their products.

  38. Candice says:

    I support Prop 37 for because GMOs are scary and the public has the right to become educated about them. I use to live in California and I voted to put this on the ballot. I wish I still lived there so I can vote it through. I also wish I had enough money to donate to this cause but I firmly believe that the people of CA will vote this through and see passed the big company bull. I spoke with a volunteer who was trying to get signatures to get the prop on the ballot and she told me that even though we were in nor Cal in front of a natural food store that there were STILL people who had no idea what GMOs were. How could people not know what they are (I can see that they don’t know what harm they can cause, though)? This prop will open people’s eyes or at least get them curious. That and stick it to the big companies..

  39. Laura says:

    Is there a browser I can use that won’t display a massive bar over the left side of the blog post? It makes it very hard to read.

    • Heather says:

      Laura, I’m so sorry you’re having trouble with that share bar! I removed it at one point but got so many requests to put it back that I finally did. It could be that you need to update your browser for it to display correctly. Or if you’re viewing from your phone there could be another issue. Can you please tell me more about when/how you’re reading so I can try to help?
