Meet The Herbicide That’s Been Linked To Autism In Children
It seems that another month can’t go by without discovering yet another study that once again leads us to believe that Monsanto does not have the best intentions.
From contaminating entire farming communities in Argentina,  developing herbicides that are decimating the worldwide bee population, putting small farmers out of business with their cutthroat business models, or forcing GMOs down our throats to maximize their profits.
Remember, regardless of what Monsanto’s PR department will have you believe, GMOs are specifically designed to maximize their marketability, shelf life, and production efficiency.
One could argue that they are basically not designed for human consumption because non-genetically modified produce will always yield more nutritional value for our bodies. But that’s only the tip of the terrifying iceberg that is Monsanto.
The Current Danger
Several studies are popping up that are starting to reveal how Roundup, Monsanto’s poison, err, I mean herbicide, of choice, is potentially poisoning the entire planet’s future generations.
Stephanie Seneff Ph.D., who has over three decades of specialized studies on the relationship between biology and technology culminating in over one-hundred and seventy published peer review papers, has just revealed their argument on the long-term effects Roundup is having on the global population.[4,5]
Her most terrifying conclusion? She estimates that by 2025 Roundup will have potentially contributed to autism in about half of all the children in the world. Although that is a very bold statement, keep in mind that this is a working theory yet to be fully proven with clinical trials.
How is Roundup Affecting So Many Children?
Roundup is currently being used as a general application herbicide and preemptively being placed in Monsanto’s GMO Roundup-ready seeds.
This still doesn’t clarify how it has such a huge reach.
You need to factor in the fact that Roundup is the herbicide of choice for most mass produced corn and soy in the world. And remember, both these products are processed into high fructose corn syrup and soy filler respectively.
These two processed results are present in a myriad of Big Food (Monsanto’s bosom buddies) products available to the masses. Meaning billions are exposed to Roundup every day. 
Oh, and did I mention that both soy and corn are also used as feeds for most cattle and poultry farms? Meaning that most beef and chicken is likely contaminated with Roundup residue because no creature can filter it out naturally.
What is the Link?
Seneff’s studies show that most autistic children currently have deficiencies in iron, zinc, and serum sulfate. They also have increased seizures and mitochondrial disorders. 
She believes that those are symptoms of the heavy glyphosate presence created by heavy Roundup exposure.  Yet Monsanto still has the gall of telling us that Roundup is mostly harmless.
They go on to explain that
“…the active ingredient in the herbicide, Roundup, and aluminum, a pervasive toxic metal in our environment, operate synergistically to induce dysfunction in the pineal gland leading to the sleep disorder that is characteristic of multiple neurological diseases, including autism, ADHD, depression, Alzheimer’s disease, ALS, anxiety disorder and Parkinson’s disease.”
So essentially it’s the potential combination of increased glyphosate from Roundup products combined with aluminum found from other sources in our environment that could create an environment for pineal gland dysfunction leading to several neurological diseases.
What Action Can You Take?
Begin by ridding your home of most GMOs. And let your money talk by boycotting anything related to Monsanto.
