Roundup, which was introduced in the 1970s, 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 GMOs, 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.
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. What they do not say is that those reports are produced by their employees.
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 1970s 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.
If you do not read labels, avoid all GMOs, and realize that Monsanto only wants your money, it’s solely on you.
Back in the 1930’s the Rockefellers, in a fictitious attempt to speed up the farming process, introduced the petro-chemical fertilizers so the farmer’s did not have to spend so much time shoveling doodoo.
But they had a hidden plan. Being a chemical company they would profit greatly from the use of petro chemicals.
They also knew that the petro-chemicals would kill all the sulfur that was supplied by the manure and create illnesses that were not common, as the sulfur in the diet was the essential nutrient that kept everyone healthy.
Now that sickness was abounding, people were seeing physicians more and more frequently and were being prescribed synthetic chemical prescriptions to treat a symptom and never address the cause.
Rockefeller did this because he was also in the pharmaceutical industry.
So, to summarize: the chemicals killed the sulfur; the chemicals made people sick; the people needed synthetic chemical prescriptions.
The Rockefellers profited from the use of the chemical fertilizers and the abundant use of synthetic chemical prescriptions.
Now, with California about to mandatorily pollute children with synthetic chemicals via vaccines and Obama to forbid any country to label GMOs, you and only you can and must take responsibility for your health and the ones you love.
