Senior researcher, Dr. Stephanie Seneff, from MIT suspects that glyphosate toxicity from the overuse of Monsanto’s pesticide Roundup on our food supply will result in half of the children population having autism by the year 2050. If you’re not aware of Monsanto and their dirty dealings by now, it’s time to catch up. Not only is the big-agricultural company responsible for putting small farmers out of business and selling sterile seeds, but its introduction of GMO franken-foods into the food chain (and over-use of chemical fertilizers, herbicides, and pesticides) is the number one suspect for the bee colony collapse. If that’s not enough, one senior researcher scientist at MIT suspects that glyphosate toxicity from the overuse of Monsanto’s pesticide Roundup on our food supply will result in half of the children population having autism by the year 2050. RELATED ARTICLES Senior scientist at MIT declares ‘half of all children will be autistic by 2025’ thanks to MonsantoGlyphosate: What you don’t know might be killing you Stephanie Seneff, PhD, has spent the last three decades researching biology and technology and has published over 170 peer-reviewed articles on her findings. The past few years, however, her concentration has shifted to focus instead on the relationship between nutrition and health, specifically the topics of Alzheimer’s, autism, and cardiovascular diseases, and also the correlation between nutritional deficiencies and environmental toxins on human health. Early December, Seneff spoke out at a conference to a panel discussing GMOs, shocking audience members when she stated, “At today’s rate, by 2025, one in two children will be autistic.” Dr. Seneff noted that the side effects of autism closely mimic those of glyphosate toxicity, and presented data showing a remarkably consistent correlation between the use of Roundup on crops (as well as the creation of Roundup-ready GMO crop seeds) with the rising rates of autism. It seems children with autism have lower bio-markers indicative of excessive glyphosate, including zinc and iron deficiency, low serum sulfate, seizures, and mitochondrial disorders. The audience’s discomfort at Stephanie’s statings were obvious according to a fellow panelist. After the conference he reported, “All of the 70 or so people in attendance were squirming, likely because they now had serious misgivings about serving their kids, or themselves, anything with corn or soy, which are nearly all genetically modified and thus tainted with Roundup and its glyphosate.” In Seneff’s report to the panel, she was quick to note the prevalent use of glyphosate and its concerns. Because it is used in soy and corn, all soft drinks and candies sweetened with corn syrup and all chips and cereals that contain soy fillers have small amounts of glyphosate in them, as do beef and poultry since cattle and chicken are fed GMO corn or soy. Wheat, too, is often sprayed with Roundup just prior to being harvested, which means that all non-organic bread and wheat products would be sources of glyphosate toxicity. The amount of glyphosate in the previously listed foods may not be large, but the cumulative effect (especially since most Americans now consume 70% of their diet from processed sources) could be devastating. Many studies are now showing the dangerous link between human health and chemical fertilizers, genetically modified foods, and pesticides on the food supply. For example, a recent study shows that pregnant women living near farms where pesticides are applied have a 60% increased risk of children having an autism spectrum disorder. Furthermore, many other toxic substances may be autism-inducing. Alliance for Natural Health released a report revealing the government’s deliberate concealment of the link between the MMR vaccine (for measles, mumps, and rubella) and a sharply increased risk of autism – especially in African American boys. Other studies now show a link between a child’s exposure to pesticides and autism; for example, children whose mothers smoked were also twice as likely to have autism. Research also acknowledges that environmental contaminants such as PCBs, PBDEs, and mercury can alter brain neuron functioning even before a child is born. In addition, the number of adverse reactions from vaccines has been reported to be correlated with autism as well – though Dr. Seneff says its correlation does not match as closely as with Roundup. In conclusion, it seems quite obvious that the overuse of chemicals and other environmental toxins to the food supply is not only detrimental to the environment, but is wreaking have on mankind’s health. No doubt autism is a complex problem with many potential causes, but Dr. Seneff’s data is particularly important considering how close the interrelationship is. The fact that it is coming from a scientist with impeccable credentials also validates the demand to take it all more seriously. Earlier last year, Stephanie Seneff presented many of the same facts at the Autism One conference; that presentation is available on YouTube. This is not the first time Roundup has received criticism for its suspected danger(s). Because glyphosate in Roundup targets the shikimate pathway in bacteria, fungi, algae, parasites, and plants (inhibiting the biosynthesis of amino acids), it works as an extremely effective herbicide. Yet its manufacturers claim that the chemical concoction is harmless to other organisms (specifically us), as humans don’t have this shikimate pathway. But Dr. Seneff disagrees in their stating, claiming that gut bacteria in the human gut does have this pathway, and is crucial to retain because it helps supply the body with essential amino acids. If the beneficial bacteria is killed of by Roundup, pathogens may grow and interfere with the body’s ability to synthesize amino acids (including the amino acid methionine, which leads to shortages in critical neurotransmitters and folate), and chelate (remove) important minerals like iron, cobalt, and manganese. These are only some of adverse effects. What may be worse, the scientist states that additional chemicals in Roundup are untested because they’re classified as “inert”. Yet, according to a 2014 study in BioMed Research International, the untested chemicals are capable of amplifying the toxic effects of Roundup hundreds of times over. “In my opinion, the situation is almost beyond repair,” Dr. Seneff dimly shared after her presentation. “We need to do something drastic.” Something drastic could be as simple as opting out of consuming (or feeding one’s family) processed, highly refined sugary foods, and low-quality (factory-raised) animal products. It may even include learning how to grow one’s food in their own backyard, or start a co-op to share in the bounty of fresh, high-nutrient, and pesticide-free organic produce. For the health of present people and future generations to come, there is limited time to debate what action should be taken to prevent issues of affluence, as statistically they are already at an all time high. The time and opportunity for change is NOW, and it must be carried out first through individual action. Only then will the drastic results everyone hopes for be realized ( via ). READ MORE:


A senior scientist at MIT has declared that we are facing an epidemic of autism that may result in one half of all children being affected by autism in ten years. Dr. Stephanie Seneff, who made these remarks during a panel presentation in Groton, MA last week, specifically cites the Monsanto herbicide, Roundup, as the culprit for the escalating incidence of autism and other neurological disorders. Roundup, which was introduced in the 1970’s, contains the chemical glyphosate, which is the focal point for Seneff’s concerns. Roundup was originally restricted to use on weeds, as glyphosate kills plants. However, Roundup is now in regular use with crops. With the coming of GMO’s, plants such as soy and corn were bioengineered to tolerate glyphosate, and its use dramatically increased. From 2001 to 2007, glyphosate use doubled, reaching 180 to 185 million pounds in the U.S. alone in 2007. RELATED ARTICLES Half of All US Children Will Be Autistic by 2050, According to MIT ScientistDown with Monsanto: Increasing number of countries banning cancer causing glyphosate and GMO’s If you don’t consume corn- on- the -cob or toasted soybeans, however, you are hardly exempt from the potential affects of consuming glyphosate. Wheat is now sprayed with Roundup right before it is harvested, making any consumption of non- organic wheat bread a sure source for the chemical. In addition, any products containing corn syrup, such as soft drinks, are also carrying a payload of glyphosate. According to studies cited by Seneff, glyphosate engages “gut bacteria” in a process known as the shikimate pathway. This enables the chemical to interfere with the biochemistry of bacteria in our GI tract, resulting in the depletion of essential amino acids . Monsanto has maintained that glyphosate is safe for human consumption, as humans do not have the shikimate pathway. Bacteria, however, does—including the flora that constitutes “gut bacteria.” It is this ability to affect gut bacteria that Seneff claims is the link which allows the chemical to get on board and wreak further damage. The connection between intestinal flora and neurological functioning is an ongoing topic of research. According to a number of studies, glyphosate depletes the amino acids tyrosine, tryptophan, and phenylalanine, which can then contribute to obesity, depression, autism, inflammatory bowel disease, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. Monsanto disagrees. The food and chemical giant has constructed a webpage with links to scientific studies pronouncing the safety of glyphosate. Other science writers have also taken up the Monsanto banner, scoffing at the scientific studies that prompted Seneff to make her claims. “They made it up!” pronounced Huffpost science writer Tamar Haspel, in an article thin on analysis but heavy on declarative prose. Others, such as Skeptoid writer and PhD physicist Eric Hall, take a more measured approach, and instead focus on the studies which prompted the glyphosate concerns. According to Hall, Seneff is making an error known as the “correlation/causation error,” in which causality is inaccurately concluded when there exists only the fact that two separate items—in this case, the increased use of glyphosate and the increased incidence of autism—may be observed but are not, in fact, directly related. Seneff’s pronouncements focus specifically on the glyphosate issue. As we know, there are other potential tributaries which may be feeding the rise in autism and also causing age-related neurological conditions, such as Alzheimer’s. These may include contents of vaccines, aluminum cooking ware as well as other potential sources for chemical consumption. Some individuals, such as M.D. and radio host Rima Laibow have speculated on the intentionality behind this ostensible chemical siege against our gray matter. Laibow believes that the impetus may be to create an entire class of autistic individuals who will be suited only for certain types of work. This harks back, eerily, to Aldous Huxley’s classic Brave New World, in which individuals were preprogrammed from “conception” for eventual placement in one of five groups, designated as Alpha, Beta, and so on down to Epsilon, based on their programmed brain power. In Huxley’s dystopian world, this class delineation by intellectual ability enabled society to function more smoothly. Whatever may driving the autistic/Alzheimer’s diesel train, one thing is for certain: the spectre of half of our children coming into the world with significant brain damage constitutes a massive and undeniable wound to humanity. The rate of autism has skyrocketed from roughly one in every two thousand in the 1970’s to the current rate of one in every sixty eight. Alzheimer’s has become almost universal in the elderly. Seneff’s predictions can only be ignored at grave risk to the human race ( via ). Janet C.
