Chemical Self-Destruction – Monsanto’s Human Species Terminator: Glyphosate – Why Would You Knowingly Allow Glyphosate into Your Child’s System
MIT Scientist Uncovers Link Between Glyphosate, GMOs And The Autism Epidemic

Autism is one of humanity’s most mysterious afflictions. The disorder, which can hinder communication, empathy and other social skills on a spectrum ranging from mild to severe, affects as many as 1 in 68 children born in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control, up from 1 in 150 at the turn of the century. No one knows exactly what has caused the increase, but one researcher is pointing her finger at a chemical called glyphosate, more widely known as the active ingredient in the ubiquitous weed killer Roundup.
Agribusiness giant Monsanto introduced Roundup Ready soybeans to the United States in 1994, which are genetically modified to resist glyphosate so farmers can spray their fields with the weed killer without damaging their crops. Today, some 90 percent of soy and corn grown in the country are Roundup Ready.

Now Dr. Stephanie Seneff, senior research scientist at the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, is sounding the alarm bell. Seneff claims that as many as half of all children born in the United States by 2025 will be on the autism spectrum, and Roundup is the reason why.
“The way glyphosate works is that it interrupts the shikimate pathway, a metabolic function in plants that allows them to create essential amino acids,” Seneff explained at a recent Autism conference. “When this path is interrupted, the plants die. Human cells don’t have a shikimate pathway so scientists and researchers believed that exposure to glyphosate would be harmless.”
However, she claims that the chemical still effects humans even if it doesn’t act on our bodies directly.
“The problem is that bacteria DO have a shikimate pathway and we have millions of good bacteria in our guts — our ‘gut flora,'” Seneff continued. “These bacteria are essential to our health. Our gut isn’t just responsible for digestion, but also for our immune system. When glyphosate gets in our systems, it wrecks our gut and as a result our immune system.”
Seneff also says that her research has shown that glyphosate can inhibit liver function, which could be an explanation for high rates of vitamin D deficiency. She further claims that the chemical could be implicated in diminished kidney function, celiac disease and other gastrointestinal problems.
“[The autism rate] has come up from 1 in 10,000 in 1970 — so that is already an incredibly alarming change,” Seneff said to Next News Network. “I got worried eight years ago when I was seeing it rising, and people were saying, ‘Oh, it’s just more reporting, more diagnosis’ — that’s a way to hide the evidence.”
That’s not the only alarming data that has come to light recently about Roundup. Earlier this spring, the World Health Organization came to a consensus that glyphosate is probably carcinogenic to humans after an extensive review of the evidence and scientific record. Other studies suggest that pesticide exposure in pregnant women can put children at risk of birth defects leading to learning and behavioral impairments.
While some industry-touted studies claim that Roundup is safe for humans, Seneff says that there simply hasn’t been enough research. “The glyphosate is being soaked up by the plants and getting into the food system,” she said, “and the U.S. government is doing very little monitoring to even see if that’s true.”

Is Glyphosate killing the oceans? The probability cannot be denied.

Jim Stone, March 18, 2017
I’ve been so disturbed by information I have read today on jimstonefreelance.com that I HAVE to share it with you. I have a reasonably sized audience and actually I am sure many of you have an audience too. Please research and share.
This is not Left or Right or stuff about safe space or Russia or any of the million and one bullshit distractions the powers that be are playing to make you not see their ruthless and anti-human agenda for what it is:
Monsanto’s glyphosate is killing most of the ocean’s phytoplankton (14 out of 16 species, including ALL the coral reef phytoplankton). This is, clearly, the most important thing I could ever post because very few have even heard of this unexpected twist in the GMO tale, yet.
I read it on jimstonefreelance.com today and needed to check this out for myself.
Thanks to a Facebook poster, the following scientific report has been provided:
Basically, glyphosate (Round-Up) has this effect:
“Our results showed that glyphosate could significantly inhibit the growth of the twelve out of the fourteen species we examined at either 36 μM or 360 μM”
The extinction level event is not Fukushima (though that is horrific).
Global warming is not the cause of marine coral dying everywhere.
It is Round-Up.
I can squash the straw men here by admitting human activity has had an (unquantifiable) effect on the planet’s ecosystems, yet phytoplankton are dying off at ALL latitudes.
Monsanto are destroying everything before our eyes in real time. Please research. Please share. I’m certainly not promoting the blog here. I don’t think there’s much point if all the oceans die in the next few years and all the bees die. I won’t have a readership by that point.
JIM STONE’S POST IN FULL:
Something is DEFINITELY killing ALL of the world’s oceans
It cannot possibly be Fukushima, which will never affect the great barrier reef, which is now dying, or the Atlantic. And it is not global warming, despite a hoax report produced by the New York Times this morning that claimed that. However, the New York Times (link won’t work because they want you to sign up for something rather than give you the report) at least confirms that the dying reefs are a widespread reality, while damaging the truth by saying global warming is causing it.
I decided to have a look at what is really killing the oceans. And I think I found the key indicator – phytoplankton die off. To find the reason for the ocean reef die offs, we need to look at what is killing the phytoplankton. Let’s look at the life cycle of a reef to see why a huge reduction in phytoplankton would be a good reason for a reef to die.
Corals, barnacles, sponges, – all animal life in the entire ocean, even the whales, have plankton as the root source of all food, that the entire ocean is based around. Look at the chart to the left here – there is ONE producer in the ocean – plankton – that everything else ultimately uses as a food source. This is common 6th grade knowledge. And zooplankton, that many corals feed on, use phytoplankton as a food source. Even starfish, which feed on clams, use phytoplankton as a food source via clams, which filter large amounts of ocean water through themselves to get the plankton out for food. Everything in the ocean, at the root of the food supply, starts out with phytoplankton as the key to get the entire chain moving.
Phytoplankton levels in the ocean have recently dropped by more than 40 percent. What could cause that? FACT: it is NOT global warming, despite claims that it is. Clear proof it is not global warming is in the fact that phytoplankton exist from the equator to the arctic, which represents an enormous temperature gradient, and phytoplankton is dying off at all temperature gradients. This proves global warming as a reason to be a hoax.
To take steps toward the real answer then, we have to look at exactly what phytoplankton is.
Phytoplankton is a photosynthetic plant that basically amounts to ocean algae. Its biological processes are the same as land based plants. AND WHAT NEW MATERIAL HAS BEEN INTRODUCED THAT KILLS VIRTUALLY ALL LAND BASED PLANTS? ANSWER: GLYPHOSATE.
All man made materials have what are called half lives, which, at the completion of one half life, still has half of it remaining. Question: How long is Glyphosate’s half life in the wild? In most cases, up to 175 days. And that means that 350 days later, almost a full year later, any glyphosate the farmers spray still has 25 percent of it left in the environment. How long does it take glyphosate to reach the ocean? That varies, but in a best case scenario, taking the longest time possible, glyphosate sprayed in Minnesota, where the Mississippi river starts at a total river average speed of 2.25 mph, will be to the ocean after running off into the Mississippi in 1050 hours (43.5 days) if the glyphosate is sprayed at Lake Itaska. That’s the longest time it will take. And that means it will hit the ocean with well over 80 percent of it’s killing capacity in a minimum lethality scenario.
Monsanto claims that half lives in fresh water are as little as 90 days. However, studies have shown that even in fresh water, it can be found over a year after it is applied.
QUESTION: THE OCEAN IS SALTY, VERY ALKALINE. WHAT HAPPENS TO GLYPHOSATE IN THAT SCENARIO?
ANSWER: it does not go away. You can tell just from this abstract that glyphosate, when it hits the ocean, is going to suddenly acquire a much longer half life. Though this group talks about what happens to glyphosate in slightly alkaline pond water, it takes absolutely no leap of logic to figure out what will happen to glyphosate when it hits the ocean. Glyphosate is a salt. And when it is put in the presence of strong salts, it is only rational to conclude the strong salts will act as permanent preservers when it is proven that even a very low presence of salts can dramatically boost it’s environmental persistence.
Oh, but the oceans are big, they can soak it up, right?
Answer: I would not bet on that, because when glyphosate, which is a salt, gets in the presence of other salts, it’s potency is greatly boosted.
Conclusion: All the star fish die offs, all the reef die offs, have their roots in phytoplankton die offs, which is extremely likely to be triggered by use of glyphosate in agriculture. Once Glyphosate hits the ocean, you can say ADIOS to half lives, it instead most likely becomes virtually permanent and on top of that, it’s ability to kill is greatly boosted. It will keep building up in concentration year after year, due to the fact that the salt water will preserve it. When the timing of these massive phytoplankton die offs which trigger broader die offs is considered, a potential link to glyphosate becomes obvious.
