An MIT professor has studied glyphosate, the ingredient in Monsanto’s RoundUp and found there was a link between autism and the chemical.
Dr. Seneff argues that glyphosate severely impacts gut health by destroying healthy gut bacteria (think probiotics).
Seneff’s research shows that children with autism have biomarkers indicative of excessive glyphosate, including zinc and iron deficiencies, low serum sulfate, seizures and mitochondrial disorder, according to the Alliance for Natural Health.
Monsanto denies all evidence pointing to such a connection, arguing that Roundup is harmless because humans don’t have a shikimate pathway, which the chemical inhibits. However, Seneff notes that our gut bacteria do in fact have this pathway, and these bacteria are crucial for supplying the body with amino acids.Learn more: http://www.naturalnews.com/048226_glyphosate_contamination_autism_GMOs.html#ixzz3OLzWXUQQ~~~~~~~~~~~
