Dr. Stephanie Seneff gave talk explaining how Glyphosate in pesticide RoundUp can incorrectly substitute for the amino acid Glycine, which then causes a whole hosts of problems in the human body including neurological diseases including autism and Alzheimer’s and Parkinsons.
This talk was at Autism One and the slides are available.
She believes glyphosate is a major factor in the cause of autism due to high correlation between glyphosate use and autism (R = 0.9972 where 1 is max).
Glyphosate is toxic because it affects the shikimate pathway in our beneficial gut bacteria — one of whose job is to produce folate for us. Glyphosate causes folate deficiency and methly group deficiencies.
It disrupt gut flora, chelates useful minerals, disrupt sulfur metabolism, and impairs methalation — all issues with autism.
How does this relate vaccine and autism? She believe there is glyphosate in the vaccine due to how they are grown.
Alzheimer’s, Parkinson, ALS, and Prion disease all involves mis-folding of proteins. And they suspect that the problem is in the glycine location. Glyphosate substitution can cause this bad mis-folding of glycine. Glyphosate also hampers the body ability to break down the mis-folded proteins due to it causing sulfur depletion.
GABA receptor also has glycine. Autism has a weakened response of the inhibitory GABA receptor.
Glyphosate is sprayed on wheat and is a risk factor for celiac disease, and other food sensitivities.
Sri Lanka has realized that glyphosate is causing kidney failure among agricultural workers in sugar cane fields and have now ban glyphosate.
The last part of her talk was how to protect ourselves from glyphosate.
Dandelions, barberry, and burdock can protect. [reference]
On animals, it was found that activated charcoal, bentonite clay, humic and fulvic acids, and sauerkraut juice can protect against glyphosate.
Important nutrients to have around to get the sulfate up and prevent brain barrier leakiness…
Curcumin, Garlic, Vitamin C, Probiotic, Methyl tetrahydrofolate, Cobalamin, Glutathione , Taurine, Epsom salt baths (magnesium sulfate),
Do not take folate, take Methyl tetrahydrofolate instead.
Eat foods containing manganese and sulfur. And of course, go organic.
What she did not mention was about glycine supplement. Since glycine is a safe supplement, wouldn’t it be reasonable to take glycine supplement to have enough glycine aboard so as to reduce the mis-incorporation of glyphosate as glycine?
To avoid GMO (and therefor glyphosate), watch …
It says to avoid …
- non-organic corn and its derivatives (including high-fructose corn syrup)
- non-organic soy and its derivatives
- genetically modified sugar beets
- non-organic papaya
- canola oil
- cotton seed oil
- non-organic zucchini
- non-organic yellow squash
