MIT scientist links autism to Monsanto’s Roundup and predicts HALF of U.S. children will be autistic by 2025
Categories: Health & Nutrition
Evidence just keeps pilling up against the herbicide Roundup manufactured by Monsanto and they can not be denied much longer. Even California has jumped the wagon and has called for it to be labeled as cancer causing. We must be very vigilant to what we put in our bodies may that be through our food but also beauty products and others. More and more our food crops and fruit trees are being sprayed with this and other similar chemicals and our food supply is being poisoned. Keep your family safe, buy locally, visit your farmer's markets and if you can grow your own vegetables organically, do so. You will never regret investing in producing your own food supply.
MIT research scientist and author Stephanie Seneff has studied autism for almost a decade, and her recent presentation regarding rising autism rates included a dramatic and controversial prediction. Seneff believes that if current rates continue, by 2025 one out of every two children born in the United States will be diagnosed with autism — and she links the rise with the increased use of Monsanto’s weed killer Roundup and its active ingredient glyphosate. Additionally, she notes that exposure to heavy metals (such as mercury and aluminum, found in vaccines) are also a likely factor, especially in conjunction with glyphosate. Heavy use of Roundup began in 1990 and has increased ever since. Autism has seen a similar rise in that time period.
Although there are numerous genetic and environmental factors that are believed to contribute to the development of autism, Seneff believes the use of Roundup is a crucial link (especially considering how many children with autism have biomarkers indicating excessive glyphosate in their bodies), and other concerned environmental and parent groups are agreeing with her. Glyphosate has been found in dramatically high levels in breast milk in the United States (up to 1000 times higher than what is allowed in drinking water in Europe), people in 18 different countries have been found to have glyphosate in their blood, and urine testing has also shown that glyphosate levels are 10 times higher in the U.S. than in Europe.
