MIT Researcher: Glyphosate Herbicide will Cause Half of All Children to Have Autism by 2025

Autism is an increasing issue that needs to be addressed. Why are we letting the government poison us with pesticides?

Stephanie Seneff, PhD, has researched biology and technology for many years now and has published close to two hundred peer-reviewed articles. She has been focusing on the relationship between nutrition and health here lately. This is something many others should be focusing on as well.

In a panel discussion about GMOs at a recent conference she declared this:

“At today’s rate, by 2025, one in two children will be autistic.

She mentioned the side effects of autism closely mimicking the side effects of glyphosate toxicity and even presented data that showed a consistent correlation between the use of Roundup on crops with the rising rates of autism. One study has shown that pregnant women living near farms where pesticides are applied actually have a 60% increased risk of having children with an autism spectrum disorder of some kind.

There have been many studies done that show the link between children’s exposure to pesticides and autism. This is especially alarming considering this month the USDA released a study that showed there are detectable levels of pesticide residue in more than half of foods tested by the agency. Now, that being said the USDA also added that they did not test for glyphosate residue specifically. This means that for some reason they did not test for the active ingredient in the most widely used herbicide in the world. Why on Earth would they not test for that?

The data brought about by Seneff is extremely important because of how close this correlation is. Seneff has spoken on this issue several times and knows exactly what she is talking about. Earlier this year she spoke at the Autism One conference as well.

Monsanto may claim that Roundup is harmless to humans but that does not mean it is. Glyphosate is something that we need to crack down on. We need to do something drastic about this issue before it gets even more out of hand. For more information on this issue please listen to what Seneff has to say in the video below.
