The Autism and Glyphosate (RoundUp) Link : A Mom's Argument
Posted by Zen L Honeycutt4706.40GS on September 24, 2013
1 out of 2 of our children are expected to have Autism by the year 2025 based on past and current diagnosis. The increase of this debilitating condition is devastating to families, our health care system, our economy, and the future of our country.
When I read that scientists Samsel and Seneff link autism to glyphosate sprayed on genetically modified foods, I dove into all the research I could find. I have been watching countless videos and gathering documented facts and selected just a few to post here. They all focus just on vaccines causing autism and other developmental disorders, but I believe there is a missing link.
Consider these facts:
Themerisol ( Mercury) which has been linked to autism by parents and doctors, has been in vaccines since 1929. (1)
Still, cases of autism were very rare for several decades.
Watch the video, about half way through it says that in the late 90's the doctor's office was suddenly FLOODED with autistic children.
What happened in the late 90's? Well in 1996 GMO's were put into our food supply. Most GMO's are genetically engineered to withstand herbicides (or they are classified as pesticide because they have toxins injected into their DNA to kill the bugs that eat it). The number one used herbicides, RoundUp is now used at the rate of 1 billion lbs per yer.
The chemical has been recently linked to autism because it can impact the body in three ways. (2)
1) It destroys the beneficial gut bacteria which is the stronghold of the immune system. Without the thick layer of good bacteria, holes or "leaky gut" form and allergies and inflammation develop. Also, without the good bacteria the body cannot produce Tryptophan, without Trytophan the body cannot produce Seratonin, and Gherin, which are necessary to prevent diabetes, obesity, bi polar,depression and behavioral disorders.
2) Glyphosate inhibits the liver's ability to detox, causing toxins to build up in the body.
3) Glyphosate breaks down the blood brain barrier, allowing toxins into the brain...toxins like those found in our environment and vaccines.
My point is that the flood of autistic children happened at the same time that this glyphosate, which scientist now say allow toxins into the brain, was allowed to contaminate our food supply.
The EPA website shows that 160 of our non organic foods are now allowed to have toxic levels of glyphosate which far exceed levels that have been shown to cause cancer and organ damage. The reality is that our non organic food is contaminated with glyphosate and our children are sicker than ever. (3) See the list here.
As shown in the video above, 1 out of 6 children now have developmental disorders. Autism-related conditions like PANDAS, OCD, BiPolar etc are on the rise. Pesticide use and allowable levels on our food have risen 30-300% in some cases, in just one year. 80% of of food is now GMO and according to the USA World Health Report, we rank last of the top 17th most developed countries in health, with Autism skyrocketing beyond comprehension.
This could explain why on their own, many vaccination studies have shown that mercury in the vaccines does NOT cause autism. On it's own, perhaps it does not permeate the brain...but what about in conjunction with glyphosate, which breaks down the blood brain barrier?
Please consider this...I am not a doctor but I have Mom common sense, as I am sure you do. Feeding our kids toxin pesticides and injecting our kids with toxic vaccines, especially while their immune systems are repeatedly being attacked by GMO's and pesticides/herbicides is just risky.
This post is a call for testing. If you disagree with this argument, run some tests that include glyphosate as part of the environmental impact to determine if there is an increased absorption of toxins into the brain in it's presence.
See the world leading expert on children's health and vaccines here. Stay tuned for our interview with Andy Wakefield himself next Friday Sept 27th on the Weekly Women's GMO Free News google hangout.
See the video which explains the history of vaccines and the current court system.
Reconsider multiple vaccines, especially if your child has a compromised immune system already, like allergies or asthma, and eat organic please.
RoundUp is a register trademark of Monsanto. Monsanto is a chemical company, which made Agent Orange, and now owns the majority of our seeds. They make genetically modified food crop seeds and the pesticides and herbicides to spray on them.
(1) An independent review of the literature by Desoto et al showed that 74% of scientific studies do support a link between thimerosal and thimerosal containing vaccines and autism. It is the public relations message from the CDC and others that makes the claim that there is no link.
