Dr. Stephanie Seneff, an MIT research scientist, is calling for a ban on Monsanto’s Roundup. During a recent presentation she stated, “At today’s rate, by 2025, one in two children will be autistic.”
She made this statement while presenting her findings of the correlation between the increasing use of Monsanto’s Roundup and the rising rates of autism. While she is unable to prove causation, the correlation on a graph is quite remarkable and does call for further investigation. The number of children with autism has risen from 1 in 5,000 in 1990 to 1 in 68 today.
Glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup, builds up in our environment and in our bodies over time. Monsanto claims it is harmless. Senoff says glyphosate kills beneficial bacteria in the gut, which results in shortages of critical neurotransmitters, minerals, and folate. And we know, nine out of ten autistic children suffer from gastrointestinal problems.
In her PowerPoint she wrote, “Adjuvants in pesticides are generally declared as inerts, and for this reason they are not tested in long-term regulatory experiments. It is thus very surprising that they amplify up to 1000 times the toxicity of their APs [Active Principles] in 100% of the cases where they are indicated to be present by the manufacturer.”
Some Of the Markers For Autism and Glyphosate Match
She lists the following markers—the same markers for both autism and glyphosate poisoning:
- Disrupt gut bacteria; inflammatory bowel
- Low serum sulfate
- Methionine deficiency
- Serotonin and melatonin deficiency
- Defective aromatase
- Zinc and iron deficiency
- Urinary p-cresol
- Mitochondrial disorder
- Seizures; Glutamate toxicity in the brain
In addition to autism, she revealed correlations to Alzheimer’s, celiac disease and other intestinal disorders as well as kidney failure of agricultural workers.
Other Correlations To Autism
There is no single cause for autism. It is becoming more and more clear that autism is caused by toxicity, whether than be an accumulation or a single event.
Vaccines can provide that single event. Many parents report that their normal child disappeared right before their eyes after a vaccine, often the MMR. The current vaccine schedule also provides the opportunity for an accumulative reaction.
Our Increasingly Toxic World
The dirt in which we grow our food, the air we breathe, the water we drink, the food we eat, our homes, vaccines and other medications, all combine to create a toxic world.
If we want to protect our children, we must limit toxicity as much as possible in utero, after birth, and as they grow.
Roundup has been banned in other countries.
