    There is a confluence of factors at play and we MUST gather force and stop the ridiculous divisive hoohah. IMO if not able to rally, we will just fade out and That's THAT for the line of sapiens.

    Quote Glyphosate Linked To Aggressive Breast Cancer, Alarming Generational Changes In Offspring, New Studies Find
    The Highwire
    October 6, 2019

    Two new studies add to the body of science, showing glyphosateó a key ingredient in Bayer AG-Monsantoís herbicide Roundupóis harmful to living systems. The studies point to convincing evidence the chemical can alter DNA by actively working at the epigenetic level.

    These alarming studies strongly suggest glyphosate is affecting human chemistry at the genetic level to turn on negative, disease-causing traits Ė even into future generations. These study results indicate glyphosate progressively weakens the genome of living systems exposed to the chemical. It increases susceptibility to health problems and increased infertility.

    These discoveries come from a collaboration of scientists from Purdue University and the Institut National de la Santť et de la Recherche Mťdicale (INSERM)/Institut de Cancťrologie de LíOuest (ICO) in Nantes, France. Together, they found glyphosate can lead to mammary cancer when combined with another risk factor. Their work was published in Frontiers in Genetics and shows that glyphosate primes mammary cells for tumor growth by reprogramming epigenomes.

    ďThis is a major result and nobody has ever shown this before,Ē says Sophie LeliŤvre, a professor of cancer pharmacology at Purdueís College of Veterinary Medicine. ďShowing that glyphosate can trigger tumor growth, when combined with another frequently observed risk, is an important missing link when it comes to determining what causes cancer.Ē

    What other frequently observed risks propelled breast cancer growth?

    It is assumed that only 5Ė10% of cancers are directly caused by inherited genetic abnormalities. The remaining 90% of cancers are linked to environmental factors that directly or indirectly affect DNA.

    The researchers discuss environmental and lifestyle factors as other ďoncogenic hits,Ē including diet, tobacco, infections, obesity, alcohol, radiation, stress, physical activity, exposure to heavy metals, and other pollutants.

    Therefore, glyphosate is one ďoncogenic hitĒ that, combined with another oncogenic hit, promotes the development of mammary tumors. A+B=C(ancer)

    For the study, scientists exposed noncancerous human mammary epithelial cells to glyphosate in vitro over a course of 21 days. The cells were placed in mice to assess tumor formation. Although cells exposed to glyphosate alone did not induce tumor growth, cancerous tumors did develop after glyphosate was combined with molecules that were linked to oxidative stress.

    Oxidative stress is a chemical reaction that occurs as a result of aging, diet, alcohol consumption, smoking, or other stressors. It alters the organization and integrity of the genome of the breast, aiding cancer development.

    ďWhat was particularly alarming about the tumor growth was that it wasnít the usual type of breast cancer we see in older women,Ē LeliŤvre said. ďIt was the more aggressive form found in younger women, also known as luminal B cancer.ď

    Another first-of-its-kind study from Washington State University exposed pregnant rats to just half the rate of the commonly used herbicide Roundup that is considered safe for exposure. Researchers found that roughly 90 percent of the next two generations developed health problems by the time they were one year old, including kidney disease, obesity, or issues with their ovaries, testicles, or prostate.

    The most dramatic finding, says WSU professor of biological sciences Michael Skinner, showed about one-third of the future generations had miscarriages and/or died during pregnancy.

    ďItís not just a decision of our own right now to say, ĎI donít mind being exposed to this,ĎĒ Skinner says. ďIf those have effects generations down the line, we have a responsibility to our future generations.ď

    The WSU study builds on findings of a 2018 study that looked at glyphosate exposure in U.S. pregnant women, using urine samples as the measure of exposure. Published in the journal Environmental Health, the authors concluded, ďWe found that > 90% of pregnant women had detectable glyphosate levels and that these levels correlated significantly with shortened pregnancy lengths.ď

    Termed ďEpigenetic Transgenerational Inheritance of Adult-Onset Disease,Ē the findings add yet another layer of evidence why countries like the U.S., who havenít announced outright bans on the product, should reconsider their policy.

    Currently, 17 countries have issued outright bans on glyphosate as global favor rapidly turns against the product and its manufacturer Bayer AG-Monsanto.

    With the Environmental Protection Agency unwilling to budge on setting stricter limits or considering a ban on glyphosate in the U.S., people must take individual action to avoid exposure. Costco has pulled Roundup from its shelves due to public pressure (and perhaps sensing that future lawsuits may involve retailers). Lowes and Walmart are now named in legal action due to their unwillingness to drop the product from their stores.

    Meanwhile, Bayer AG has lost three high-profile cases against its Roundup product, causing the company to lose investor confidence, stock price, and public favor. The highly anticipated, upcoming ĎWinston lawsuití held in Monsantoís backyard of St. Louis is set for October 15 as Bayer AG-Monsanto desperately attempts to delay and block the trialís start.

    The Winston lawsuit, filed in March of 2018, would be the first trial to take place in the St. Louis area. Two trials that had been set to start in St. Louis in August and September have been delayed, as reported by food industry watchdog, U.S. Right To Know.

    USRTK.org writes, ďThe plaintiffs in the Winston case are among more than 18,000 people in the United States suing Monsanto claiming that exposure to the companyís glyphosate-based herbicides caused them to develop non-Hodgkin lymphoma and that Monsanto hid the risks associated with its weed killers.Ē

    Judge Vince Chhabria presided over the San Francisco federal court case in which a civil jury awarded Californiaís Edwin Hardeman $80 million on evidence that Roundup was a substantial factor in causing his non-Hodgkinís lymphona. In that case, Judge Chhabria wrote the following conclusion:

    ďThere is strong evidence from which a jury could conclude that Monsanto does not particularly care whether its product is in fact giving people cancer, focusing instead on manipulating public opinion and undermining anyone who raises genuine and legitimate concerns about the issue.Ē

    This information from Marion Nestle similar to what Dr. Shiva and Corbett report has mentioned... dirty little science is horrifically distorted.

    Quote Host Chris Hedges talks to Marion Nestle, New York University professor of nutrition, on how food companies distort the science and research into what we eat. In her book ĎUnsavory Truth: How Food Companies Skew The Science Of What We Eat,í Nestle explains that the food industry follows the formula pioneered by the tobacco industry Ė cast doubt on the science, fund research to provide desired results, offer gifts and consulting arrangements to buy silence or loyalty, use front groups, promote self-regulation and personal responsibility, and use the courts to challenge critics and dismantle regulations.

    Dr. Shiva exposes the Academic Industrial Complex and the need for REAL SCIENCE

    Quote TRANSCRIPT AND MP3: https://www.corbettreport.com/science...

    In recent years, the public has gradually discovered that there is a crisis in science. But what is the problem? And how bad is it, really? Today on The Corbett Report we shine a spotlight on the series of interrelated crises that are exposing the way institutional science is practiced today, and what it means for an increasingly science-dependent society.

    "Synbio", more poisons to add to the list...
    Wake-Up Call for Organic Advocates: Synbio Poses Greater Threat than Old-School GMOs
    October 30, 2019
    Organic Consumers Association
    by Alan Lewis

    "We in the organic sector need to stop thinking in terms of GMOs. Those old-school crops and suspect agricultural practices are still a problem for organic growers.

    But the new synthetic biology is an even larger and growing threat.

    First, it is not disclosed or labeled.

    Second, everythingóeverythingóis now being gene-edited in a million different ways.

    Third, if it's not just gene-edited, then it is being built from scratch using artificial intelligence (AI) and rapid sequencing to create novel gene sets and living organisms whose behavior might be useful.

    Fourth, useful to whom? Tens of billions of dollars of investment are flowing into the synthetic biology space, all of it focused on capturing ownership of intellectual property that can be protected, capitalized and profited from.

    In spite of their creatorsí enthusiasm and belief in a new scientific paradigm, the products of synthetic biology actually reinforce the current food, agriculture and medical paradigm.

    These products don't prevent diabetes, instead they attempt to create new insulin.

    They don't stop indiscriminate use of antibiotics, they instead create novel antibiotics to overcome newly resistant pathogens.

    They don't support soil health, animal welfare and biodiversity, they merely find ways to capitalize on CAFO (Confined Animal Feeding Operation, or factory farm) agriculture and glyphosate remediation.

    In short, the ideology of innovation underpinning synthetic biology intends to change soil, animals, humans, insects and microbes to adapt to a dangerously malfunctioning systemórather than fix the system itself.

    The goal of profiteering by externalizing costs to the environment, and in turn public health, is the economic foundation of nearly every synthetic biology start-up. We even have new metaphors to describe this irrational belief: #GeneticFallout, #GeneLitter, #GeneLitteracy, and #GeneticFukushima.

    Remember, bio-containment measures focus only on pathogens; genes and gene sub-units are not controlled for, either in the labs that create them or the water treatment facilities they eventually pass through.

    The organic community is about to face a buffet of temptations from synthetic biology.

    Is a synthetic RNAi spray that activates or silences genetic programming innate to an organic crop an allowable method?

    If a gene-edited anti-fungal treatment can be delivered to crops via gene-edited insect to save the harvest, will farmers embrace it?

    If a gene-edited cover crop will deposit extra "natural" nitrogen into soil, should conventional farmers be encouraged to use it as a path to transitioning to certification?

    In short, these and other reductionist solutions have the power to dazzle and distract organic producers from their original principles and goals: nurture the existing natural system as a whole to grow nutritious food in ways that can continue forever.

    So, hey! Let's all wake up here. Our collective understanding of genetic engineering, based on 30 years of fighting the battle against Roundup and herbicide-tolerant crops, is woefully outdated.

    The new paradigm is stealthy, massively complex, constantly innovating and wrapped in a global coordinated propaganda campaign to normalize it.

    Regulators have abandoned all oversight. Synbio tools and techniques are available to anyone, anywhere, at relatively low cost. Currently hundreds of botanicals are being grown in gene-edited ferments and sold as authentic ingredients. They are cheaper now, but only until agriculture production is put out of businessóthen the price gouging begins.

    The one bright spot is that new laboratory methods have been developed to detect synthetic materials, especially those grown in ferments. While the target molecule may be nearly identical, synthetic production methods introduce unusual entourage materials that can be readily identified and quantified.

    But why is it up to the organic community to discover and pay for these testing methods? That should be the responsibility of whomever is creating these novel materials.

    I think these should be investigated for other uses to mitigate poison inhaled, ingested on injected.

    Quote Russell Blaylock, MD - What To
    Do If Force Vaccinated
    By Dr. Russell Blaylock

    Dr Blaylock's List of suggestions on How to Reduce the Toxic Effects of the A/H1N1 Vaccine, is as follows:

    1. Number one on the list says Dr Blaylock, is to bring a cold pack with you and place it on the site of the injection as soon as you can, as this will block the immune reaction. Once you get home, continue using a cold pack throughout the day. If you continue to have immune reactions the following day, have cold showers and continue with the cold press.

    2. Take fish oil. Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), one of the omega 3 fatty acids found in fish oil supplements, is a potent immune suppressant. If you take high dose EPA you will be more susceptible to infections, because it is a powerful immune suppressant. However, in the case of an immune adjuvant reaction, you want to reduce it. Studies show that if you take EPA oil one hour before injecting a very powerful adjuvant called lipopolysaccharide (LPS), it would completely block the ability of the LPS to cause brain inflammation. Take a moderate dose everyday and more if needed to tame a cytokine storm.

    3. <http://lpi.oregonstate.edu/f-w00/flavonoid.html>Flavonoids are third on the list, namely curcumin, quercetin, ferulic acid and ellagic acid, particularly in a mixture. The curcumin and quercetin in particular have been found to block the ability of the adjuvants to trigger a long-term immune reaction. If you take it an hour before the vaccination, it should help dampen the immune reactions says Dr Blaylock.

    4. Vitamin E, the natural form that is high in gamma-E will help dampen the immune reactions and reduces several of the inflammatory cytokines.

    5. An important ingredient on the list is Vitamin C at a dose of 1000 mg, taken four times a day between meals. It is a very potent anti-inflammatory and should be taken in a buffered form, not as absorbic acid, says Dr Blaylock.

    6. <http://www.naturalnews.com/002156.html> Also use astaxanthin as it's an anti-inflammatory. According to Dr Blaylock, fatal reactions to vaccines in aboriginal and African children occurred in those who were deficient in carotinoids, like astaxanthin. It is a good protection against the toxic effects of the vaccine.

    7. Likewise, it was found that children who were deficient in zinc had a high mortality rate. Zinc is very protective against vaccine toxicity. (Do not use zinc mixed with copper however, as copper is a major trigger of free-radical generation according to Dr Blaylock).

    8. Ensure you avoid all immune-stimulating supplements, such as mushroom extracts, whey protein and <http://www.betaglucan.org/>beta-glucan.

    9. Take a multivitamin-mineral daily ≠ one that does not contain iron. This multivitamin-mineral is to make sure your body has plenty of B vitamins and selenium. Selenium, said Dr Blaylock, is very important for fighting viral infections and it reduces the inflammatory response to vaccines.

    10. Magnesium citrate/malate 500 mg of elemental magnesium two capsules, three times a day. (This was not mentioned during the show, but was posted at Dr Deagle's website, <http://www.clayandiron.com/news.jhtml?method=view&news.id=2103>ClayandIron.co m).

    11. What is very important is vitamin D3, which is the only 'vitamin' the body can manufacture from sunlight (UVB). It is a neural hormone, not really a vitamin says Dr Blaylock and helps if you are over-reacting immunologically by cooling down the reaction. Similarly, if you are under-reacting, it helps to boost your immune response. In addition it also protects against microorganism invasion.

    Black people and those in colder climates are particularly deficient, so they will almost certainly require supplementation.

    Dr Blaylock recommends that following vaccination it will help to keep the immune reaction under control if:

    i) All children get 5,000 units a day for two weeks after the vaccine and then 2,000 a units a day thereafter;

    ii) Adults get 20,000 units a day after the vaccine for two weeks, then 10,000 units a day thereafter;

    iii) And with that adults should take 500-1000 mg of calcium a day and children under the age of 12 years should take 250 mg a day, as vitamin D works more efficiently in the presence of calcium.

    12. Ensure you avoid all mercury-containing seafood or any other sources of mercury, as the heavy metal is a very powerful inducer of autoimmunity, is known to make people more susceptible to viral infections and will be in H1N1 vaccines.

    13. Avoid the oils that significantly suppress immunity and increase inflammation - such as corn, safflower, sunflower, soybean, canola and peanut oils.

    14. Drink very concentrated white tea at least four times a day. It helps to prevent abnormal immune reactions.

    15. Pop parsley and celery in a blender and drink 8 ounces of this mixture twice a day. Dr Blaylock says the parsley is very high in a flavonoid called apigenin and that celery is high in <http://www.dietaryfiberfood.com/antioxidants/flavonoid-antioxidant.php>luteolin. Both are very potent in inhibiting autoimmune diseases, particularly the apigenin, so go and plant some parsley in your garden now.

    Hear leading MIT Senior Research Scientist & Health Advocate Dr. Stephanie Seneff talk about HOW GLYPHOSATE IS DESTROYING YOUR GUT on The Dr. Theresa Nicassio Show on Healthy Life Radio."

    About Dr. Stephanie Seneff
    "A Senior Research Scientist at MITís Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory in Cambridge, Massachusetts, world-renowned Dr. Stephanie Seneff has a BS degree from MIT in Biology, MS and EE degrees in Electrical Engineering, and a Ph.D. from MIT in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science.

    Dr. Seneff has published over 200 peer-reviewed papers in scientific journals and conference proceedings.

    Woman In Science Pioneer
    With her clarity of vision about the value and power of information, Dr. Seneff boldly made her mark in the world of science, since long before it was a welcoming profession for women.

    Seneff has been turning heads every step of the way by attending, excelling, and becoming a leader at one of the most prestigious universities in the world, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Her more recent unprecedented courage in facing the big kahunas of the food & agricultural giants in David and Goliath style, Dr. Stephanie has brought to light the unpopular and inconvenient scientific data about glyphosate that these industries would prefer was buried, singlehandedly propelling Seneffís important work from the more academic circles into the global public arena.

    Biology & Computation
    A visionary academic at heart, Dr. Stephanie Seneff opened up a world of understanding in the unlikely intersection of biology and computation.

    Seneffís unique understanding of this unchartered territory led to her innovative development of a computational model for the human auditory system and related algorithms. Along this path, she also found a way to leverage her understanding of human language and a method to apply natural language processing techniques to gene predictions.

    Elected as a Fellow of the International Speech and Communication Association (ISCA) in 2012, and frequent as an invitee to give keynote speeches at international conferences, Seneffís prolific professional contributions of refereed articles on related subjects, and her service as a supervisor of numerous Masterís and Ph.D. theses at MIT speaks to her calling to make a difference through knowledge.

    GLYPHOSATE: The Rattlesnake In The Cornfields by Dr. Stephanie Seneff (in progress, book under contract with Carolyn Green Publishing)
    Courageous Health Warrior Exposing GLYPHOSATE & HEALTH Correlates in the Face of Big Business
    Most well known for her recent interests focusing on the role of toxic chemicals and micronutrient deficiencies in health and disease, Seneff has been speaking up most about the pervasive herbicide, Roundup, and the mineral, sulfur. She has authored over 30 peer-reviewed journal papers over the past few years on these topics.

    Her correlative investigations have led to a strong hypothesis that glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup, is the key factor in the autism epidemic and in many other neurological, metabolic, oncological and autoimmune diseases. She has authored over thirty peer-reviewed journal papers over the past few years on these topics, and has delivered numerous slide presentations around the world. She is currently writing a book on glyphosate that will hopefully be released in 2020 called Rattlesnake in the Cornfields.

    Seneffís statistical analyses around the herbicide Glyphosate and the recent rise in autism, Alzheimerís, autoimmunity, heart disease, obesity, cancer, and other widespread problems that have been mysteriously seeming to be on the rise has roused the sleeping giant of the corporations that have built their businesses on the use of such substances. Her integrity and unwavering commitment to helping reverse the current environmental and health crises that we are facing by sharing the available data is an inspiration to us all."

    "A highly anticipated Roundup cancer trial set to start later this month in the St. Louis area has been pulled from the docket, a court official said on Wednesday.

    The trial, which was to pit a woman named Sharlean Gordon against Roundup maker Monsanto Co., was to start Jan. 27 in St. Louis County and was to be broadcast to the public. Notably, Gordonís lawyers planned to put former Monsanto CEO Hugh Grant on the stand. St. Louis was the home of Monsantoís corporate headquarters until the company was purchased by Bayer AG of Germany in June of 2018.

    In taking the trial off the calendar, the judge in the case has ordered that a status conference be set for a month from now, said St. Louis County Court spokeswoman Christine Bertelson.

    The Gordon trial was already postponed once Ė it originally was scheduled for August. It is one of several trials that have been postponed in the last several months as Bayer attempts to find a settlement to the mass of claims filed against Monsanto by people stricken with non-Hodgkin lymphoma they claim was caused by exposure to Monsanto Roundup and other glyphosate-based herbicides. Bayer officials have said that Monsanto is facing more than 42,700 plaintiffs in the United States.

    Gordon developed non-Hodgkin lymphoma after using Roundup herbicides for 25 years at her residence in South Pekin, Illinois, and has suffered extensive debilitation due to her disease. Gordonís stepfather, who also used Roundup at the family home, died of cancer. The case is actually derived from a larger case filed in July 2017 on behalf of more than 75 plaintiffs. Gordon was to be the first of that group to go to trial.

    Monsanto and Bayer have denied that Monsantoís herbicides can cause cancer, and assert the litigation is without merit but is being fueled by greedy plaintiffsí attorneys.

    According to sources close to the litigation, discussions are underway to postpone more Roundup cancer trials, possibly including one set to start January 21 in St. Louis City Court. Attorneys for Monsanto and for the plaintiffs in the upcoming January trials declined to comment.

    Shares in Bayer hit a 52-week high and were up close to 3 percent Wednesday. Investors have been pushing the company to find a way to avoid future trials and to settle the litigation.

    In the three Roundup cancer trials held so far, unanimous juries have found that exposure to Monsantoís herbicides does cause non-Hodgkin lymphoma and that the company covered up the risks and failed to warn consumers. The three juries awarded a total of four plaintiffs more than $2 billion in damages, but the trial judges in each case have reduced the awards significantly.

    No damages have yet been paid as Monsanto appeals the verdicts.

    Bayerís annual shareholdersí meeting is set for April 28 and analysts said investors would like to see either a settlement of the litigation by that time, or at least meaningful progress in containing the liability. Bayerís stock took a dive, losing billions of dollars in value, after the first jury verdict in August 2018, and share prices remain depressed."

    Glyphosate and Roundup Disrupt the Gut Microbiome by Inhibiting the Shikimate Pathway
    Published: January 15th, 2020
    Report by Claire Robinson and Michelle Perro, MD

    Doses of glyphosate and Roundup that regulators have assumed to be safe also cause fatty liver disease and death of liver tissue.


    "Nearly all genetically modified (GM) crops worldwide are engineered to be grown with glyphosate-based herbicides such as Roundup.
    A 2019 study in rats provides the first definitive proof that glyphosate and Roundup can inhibit the series of biochemical reactions known as the ďshikimate pathwayĒ in the gut microbiome (bacterial population) and can cause alterations in the abundance of certain bacteria at regulatory-permitted (assumed safe) levels of exposure. The shikimate pathway is responsible for the synthesis of aromatic amino acids that are vital for the production of proteins, the building blocks of life. Studies in rats are generally accepted to be relevant to humans.
    The health implications of these changes in the gut microbiome are unclear.
    The study found that the inhibition of the shikimate pathway from glyphosate and Roundup exposure caused a dramatic increase in shikimic acid and 3-dehydroshikimic acid in the gut, suggesting that these substances could be used as biomarkers of exposure to these pesticides.
    The study also showed that Roundup, and to a lesser extent glyphosate, damaged the liver and kidneys of the rats. Some of the test doses of Roundup caused an increase in lesions indicative of fatty liver disease and necrosis (death of tissue), confirming and extending previous research.
    The new study proposes a specific mechanism through which exposure to glyphosate-based herbicides can cause cancer. Rats fed Roundup and glyphosate showed elevated levels of shikimic acid in their gut. Shikimic acid can either protect the body from oxidative stress, or it can act as a cancer promoter. The mechanism of action of glyphosate on the gut microbiome, newly identified in this study, might be of relevance to glyphosateís ability to cause cancer.
    It would be clinically useful to conduct surveys of human populations, such as those in the USA who are generally exposed to higher levels of glyphosate herbicides compared to other regions, to see if there is a correlation between levels of glyphosate in urine and levels of shikimic acid and 3-dehyroshikimic acid in feces, blood, and urine.
    Between 85-95% of genetically modified (GM) crops worldwide are engineered to be grown with herbicides based on the active ingredient glyphosate.[1] Glyphosate-based herbicides such as Roundup are also widely used with non-GM crops and in municipal weed control programs. Therefore it is not surprising that glyphosate residues are widely found in GM and non-GM foodstuffs, as well as in the urine of the vast majority of individuals tested, demonstrating a constant daily ingestion of this pesticide.[2] The health implications of a daily intake of glyphosate-based herbicides remains controversial Ė but an increasing number of studies link exposure to serious illnesses such as fatty liver disease and cancer.

    A new study in rats raises further concerns about the health risks of both glyphosate and glyphosate-based herbicides (e.g. Roundup). The study provides firm evidence that these pesticides disrupt the gut bacterial populations (microbiome) at doses assumed by regulators to be safe, through a particular metabolic pathway (that is, a series of chemical reactions) found in gut bacteria. The study also shows that glyphosate and glyphosate-based herbicides cause fatty liver disease and death of liver tissue at the same doses.[3]

    The study, conducted by an international team of scientists based in London, France, Italy, and the Netherlands, and led by Dr Michael Antoniou of Kingís College London, has been posted on the open peer-review site BioRxiv,[3] pending publication in a peer-reviewed journal.

    How do glyphosate and glyphosate-based herbicides disrupt the gut microbiome?

    Glyphosate herbicides kill plants by inhibiting an enzyme called EPSPS, which is part of a well-known series of biochemical reactions known as the ďshikimate pathwayĒ. The shikimate pathway is responsible for the synthesis of certain amino acids that are vital for the production of proteins, which are the building blocks of life. Thus when the synthesis of the amino acids is blocked by glyphosateís inhibition of EPSPS, the plant dies.

    Humans and other animals do not have the shikimate pathway in the cells that make up their bodies, so industry and regulators can claim that glyphosate is non-toxic to humans.[4] But many strains of gut bacteria do have the shikimate pathway, leading to debate as to whether Roundup and glyphosate could affect the gut microbiome. Imbalances in gut bacteria have been linked with many diseases, including cancer, diabetes, obesity, and depression.[5]

    Scientists had hypothesized that glyphosate herbicides could inhibit the EPSPS enzyme of the shikimate pathway in gut bacteria, leading to imbalance in the microbiome and thence to harmful effects on health. Some have proposed that if glyphosate herbicides do disrupt the gut microbiome, it is most likely to happen via EPSPS inhibition.

    However, proof that glyphosate herbicides can inhibit the EPSPS enzyme and the shikimate pathway in gut bacteria had been lacking until now. The new study proves beyond doubt that this does indeed happen.

    The study found that Roundup herbicide and its active ingredient glyphosate caused a dramatic increase in the levels of two substances, shikimic acid and 3-dehydroshikimic acid, in the gut. The levels of shikimic acid and 3-dehydroshikimic acid were undetectable in the gut of control animals not exposed to either glyphosate or Roundup. As EPSPS is responsible for converting shikimic acid and 3-dehydroshikimic acid into other compounds, the accumulation of these two substances in the gut of exposed animals shows that the EPSPS enzyme of the shikimic acid pathway was severely inhibited.

    Both Roundup and glyphosate affected the microbiome at all dose levels tested, causing alterations in bacterial populations. Some changes in the abundance of certain bacteria (Eggerthella and Homeothermacea) were common to both glyphosate and Roundup treatment groups, whereas Roundup specifically caused an increase in the relative abundance of Shinella zoogleoides.

    Microbiome analysis and its clinical significance is a rapidly advancing field, with dysbiosis (an unbalanced microbiome) now known to be of major importance in understanding how many diseases begin and progress.

    What was the study design?

    For the study, female rats (12 per group) were fed a daily dose of either glyphosate or a Roundup formulation approved in Europe, called MON 52276. Glyphosate and Roundup were administered via drinking water to give a glyphosate daily intake of 0.5 mg, 50 mg and 175 mg/kg body weight per day (mg/kg bw/day), which respectively represent the EU acceptable daily intake (ADI), the EU no-observed adverse effect level (NOAEL), and the US NOAEL.

    What did the study reveal?

    The study found adverse effects at all doses tested, thus disproving regulatorsí assumptions that these levels have no harmful effect. Microbiome effects are not tested for in the standardized tests performed by industry for regulatory purposes.

    What does the study add to previous ones?

    Some previous studies also reported changes in the gut microbiome of laboratory animals exposed to glyphosate and/or Roundup. However, they did not use the in-depth molecular profiling techniques (multi-omics) used in the latest investigation, so failed to observe the inhibition of the shikimate pathway.[6]

    Occurrence of oxidative stress
    The researchers also saw other changes in the gut metabolome that indicated oxidative stress, a type of imbalance resulting from excessive chemically reactive oxygen that can lead to mutations in DNA, damage to cells and tissues, and diseases such as cancer. Gut bacteria respond to oxidative stress by producing substances that combat it. Marked increases in these substances (called γ-glutamylglutamine, cysteinylglycine, and valylglycine) were found in the gut of rats fed glyphosate and Roundup, showing that oxidative stress was occurring.

    Occurrence of liver damage
    The study also revealed that Roundup, and to a lesser extent glyphosate, damaged the liver and kidneys of the rats, even over the relatively short study period of 90 days. Histopathological (microscopic) examination of the liver showed that the studyís two higher doses of Roundup caused a statistically significant and dose-dependent increase in lesions indicative of fatty liver disease and necrosis (death of tissue).

    In the glyphosate-only treatment group, there was also an increase in the incidence of the same types of liver damage but this did not reach statistical significance. In contrast, none of the control animals showed the same liver effects, so the changes in the glyphosate-fed animals may be biologically significant. As the authors state in their paper, the lack of statistical significance may have been because the numbers of animals were too low and the exposure duration too short. If the study were extended by another month or two, this may result in statistical significance for glyphosate as well as Roundup effects.

    What does the study mean for people eating a glyphosate-contaminated diet?

    The levels of glyphosate tested in this experiment are higher than those typically ingested daily by people, so we do not know if the same microbiome effects would be seen at typical dietary intake levels. However, a previous study also led by Dr. Antoniou, in which rats were fed a very low dose of Roundup that is well below what people could be exposed to through diet, found that even these low levels caused fatty liver disease.[7] Dr Antoniou estimates that the level of Roundup found to cause fatty liver disease in rats is at least a thousand times lower than would be ingested daily in the typical American diet. Thus, either long term exposure to a very low dose of Roundup or higher doses for a shorter time lead to the same liver toxicity. So it is likely that fatty liver disease is a concern from a typical dietary intake of glyphosate.

    Medical implications of fatty liver disease findings

    Americans are facing an epidemic of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) Ė that is, fatty liver disease that is not caused by alcohol abuse. NAFLD is estimated to affect 30-40% of adult Americans.[8] One of the main issues with this disorder is that it is often clinically silent, yet it can develop into more advanced liver disease such as steatohepatitis and cirrhosis. Because it can be asymptomatic, clinicians are not routinely diagnosing this disorder. In the early stages, it is reversible. But as the disease progresses, it can cause irreversible liver damage. Worldwide, NAFLD is the major cause of chronic liver disease.[9] NAFLD and more advanced liver issues are also affecting children, especially in cases of obesity.[10]

    Despite the findings of the link between glyphosate and Roundup to liver toxicity in the studies featured above[3,6], this specific causal factor is not being reported in the medical literature. Also, most medical practitioners are not exploring the link clinically. However, intoxication from ďorganic phosphatesĒ (a class of chemicals to which glyphosate technically belongs) is reported as a cause of NAFLD.[11] The new study confirms that exposure to glyphosate and glyphosate-based herbicides should be specifically recognized as a hitherto overlooked risk factor for NAFLD.

    Acceptable daily intake (ADI) for glyphosate is set too high

    In summary, the observations of kidney and especially liver damage in the new study provide further evidence that the ADI for glyphosate currently set by regulators is likely too high and needs to be lowered to protect the public. Furthermore, the study confirms the findings of previous research[12] that commercial formulations such as Roundup

    are more toxic than glyphosate alone, due to the adjuvants (added ingredients) present. This increase in toxicity needs to be taken into account by regulators when assessing the health risks of pesticides. Currently it is largely ignored.

    A new mechanism for glyphosate-cancer link?
    In 2015 the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) classified glyphosate as a probable carcinogen. IARC identified oxidative stress, mentioned above, and genotoxicity (damage to DNA) as possible mechanisms.

    The new study by Dr Antoniou and colleagues proposes a novel mechanism through which exposure to glyphosate-based herbicides can cause cancer. Rats fed Roundup and glyphosate showed elevated levels of shikimic acid in their gut. Shikimic acid can have different biological effects, including protecting the body from oxidative stress. But it has also been proposed as a cancer promoter, and a recent study found that shikimic acid can stimulate proliferation of human breast cancer cells.[13] Therefore the novel mechanism of action of glyphosate on the gut microbiome identified in the study by Dr Antoniou and colleagues might be of relevance to glyphosateís ability to cause cancer.

    First biomarker of glyphosate exposure has been identified

    Crucially, this study provides the first definitive proof that glyphosate and Roundup can inhibit the shikimate pathway in the gut microbiome and can cause alterations in the abundance of certain bacteria at regulatory-permitted levels of exposure. The health implications of these changes in the gut microbiome are currently unclear. Longer term studies with larger groups of animals are needed to clarify any risks. Nevertheless, the finding that glyphosate and Roundup cause a dramatic increase in shikimic acid and 3-dehydroshikimic acid in the gut of exposed rats suggests that these two substances could be used as readily measurable biomarkers of exposure to these pesticides.

    Thus, the study suggests that surveys of human populations should be conducted as matter of urgency to see if there is a correlation between levels of glyphosate in urine and levels of shikimic acid and 3-dehydroshikimic acid in feces, urine, and blood. This is especially important in regions such as the USA, where exposures are generally much higher than elsewhere (e.g. Europe). This will potentially provide insight into health risks such as NAFLD as outlined above. In the meantime, avoidance of these chemicals by favoring an organic diet and avoiding their use in the home environment is a prescription for better health.

    Wendy Myers: Hello, everyone. Thank you so much for joining the Live to 110 Podcast. My name is Wendy Myers, and you can find me at myersdetox.com, and learn about my detox and healing program, MineralPower.com. Itís where I mineralized your body and detox it of metals and chemicals because those toxins interfere in your bodyís metabolite function in so many ways.

    It doesnít matter what your health condition is, what your disease label is. Thereís always an underlying mineral deficiency and heavy metal and chemical toxicity thatís exacerbating that condition, or causing it outright.

    Today, we have a very, very important podcast. I have. Dr. Stephanie Seneff on the show to talk about glyphosate, and how that disrupts your hormones, disrupts cholesterol metabolism, disrupts your liverís ability to detox your body, how it disrupts gut bacteria and causes so many different health conditions, including autism, dementia, ALS, and so, so many others.

    And itís a huge health crisis. This is probably one of the most important podcast that Iíve done. The underlying tag line for the show should be, ďSay no to breadĒ because glyphosate is used so much in wheat, and wheat has so many various issues.

    But unfortunately, all food that is not organically grown is sprayed with glyphosate. Glyphosate is a weed killer. Itís what used on all the non-organic produce. Itís sprayed in all of the parks to kill weeds. Itís so ever present in our environment.

    Itís in the water. Itís in the rain. Itís in the vegetables, the fruit, the bread, the grains. Itís in so many things.

    And weíre going to talk about how you can avoid glyphosate to the best of your abilities, and how to detox glyphosate on the show today.

    Please keep in mind that todayís show is not intended to diagnose, treat or cure any disease or health condition, and is not a substitute for professional, medical advice. Please keep in mind this podcast is for information and entertainment purposes only. Please consult your health care practitioner before engaging in anything that we suggest today on the show.

    Dr. Seneff, thank you so much for joining us on the podcast.

    Dr. Stephanie Seneff: Iím delighted to be here. Thank you for having me.

    Wendy Myers: Well, why donít you tell the listeners a little bit about yourself and your background?

    Dr. Stephanie Seneff: Iíve been at MIT all my adult life. I went there, undergraduate, got a biology degree at MIT, and then MSEE and Ph.D degress in Electrical Engineering and Computer Scienc at MIT. And then Iíve worked at MIT ever since then.

    So MIT born and bred. A wonderful place, and I have to say theyíve been very supportive of my recent research, which has been somewhat controversial.

    MIT is a very liberal place, and they are willing to allow people to do research that is otherwise often restricted. So Iím grateful for that.

    Most of my career, I was working on building spoken dialogue systems to allow humans to have a natural interface conversation with a computer. So a lot of work with speech recognition, language understanding, dialogue modeling, and all of that stuff.

    I got into using dialogue systems to help a person learn a new language by playing games on a computer.
    So I really had a lot of fun doing all of that.

    Nine years ago, I was getting very worried because I was looking at the autism trends in the United States, and I was seeing exponential growth in the pattern. And exponential growth is a very scary thing, and I know that.

    I was concerned because it looked like most of the research dollars were going towards genetics, looking for genetic causes, and theyíre finding all kinds of genetic links, many, many genes that if you have a certain variance, you have a certain increased risk. But everything is very small. Each of those links is just a tiny proportion of the autism population. And many, many autistic kids donít have any of those genes.

    So clearly, genes arenít working. Itís not the solution. It will cause you to have an increased susceptibility, but itís not the case. The cause is an environmental thing.

    Nine years ago, I decided to start looking at potential environmental factors that could be causing it. I thought it was a pretty straightforward process because you know when something is going up exponentially, there must be an environmental contaminant thatís also going up exponentially together with that.

    And so I was looking aluminum and mercury in the vaccines, and mercury, of course, in the fillings in momís teeth, and fluoride, and [PCBís], and all these different things, and really, coming up short.

    I could explain part of it, but there were big parts of what autism was about that I couldnít explain with some of the chemicals I was finding.

    It was really very fortuitous four years ago that I had a chance to hear a two-hour presentation by Professor Don Huber, who is retired. Heís 80 years old, I think. Heís a retired professor from Purdue, and he has had an illustrious career in plant physiology and plant pathology.

    In his lecture, he made a case for glyphosate. He said glyphosate is a sleeper. It is a much more toxic chemical that we realize. Itís all over the place, and it is causing a great deal of disease, particularly related to gut dysbiosis.

    And he explained how that could be true.

    So he was drawing an analogy between the soil bacteria and the gut bacteria, and he was seeing the phenomena going on in the soil, and he was seeing all these kids with all these different gut problems, celiac disease, of course, inflammatory bowel disease, leaky gut, various problems with diarrhea and constipation, belly aches, all kinds of food issues, food allergies, all kinds of stuff, clearly, trouble with the gut.

    And he suspected that glyphosate was a major causative factor in it.

    And that was a big piece of the missing puzzle for me with the autism. I couldnít explain what was causing it. I knew they had trouble with their gut, and I was thinking maybe they we retaking too many antibiotics, getting too many ear infections. I was struggling.

    And this just handed the answer over to me on a silver platter.

    So I was really excited. I heard that two-hour talk, and I never looked back. I basically dropped everything I was doing. I didnít even know the word glyphosate when I walked into that talk. Itís really truly amazing. And now, Iíve just about read every paper I can find on glyphosate, a really, really interesting chemical biologically. Really interesting.

    Itís just so fascinating, devastating and incredible. Really incredible. Very insidious effect that it has on our biology to disrupt everything. Itís truly amazing. And Iím very blessed to have been able to interact with a lot of really smart people, and we are writing papers researching, and trying to articulate our discoveries as best we can to get the message out that this chemical needs to be banned.

    It needs to be removed from the earth.

    Wendy Myers: I first heard about glyphosate from you, actually. I was doing a podcast and mind blown. Iím so thrilled to have you on because this is such an important message that you need o get out to the world. Itís frightening.

    8:10 Glyphosate

    Wendy Myers: Why donít we tell people what exactly is glyphosate, and why is it such a concern for our health?

    Dr. Stephanie Seneff: Glyphosate is the active ingredient in the pervasive herbicide, RoundUp, which you can very conveniently going down to your local hardware store, buy some RoundUp, and spray it on your dandelions, to control the weeds in your yard.

    So itís very unregulated. Anybody can buy it, no license required. And of course, they use it enormously on the food, especially in this country.

    The key thing that happened to really make the autism epidemic take off, in my opinion, was the introduction of the GMO, RoundUp, for every crops. And this was a fabulous success in the late 1990ís. They figured out how to insert bacterial gene into the crop, so that the crop wouldnít die when it was exposed to RoundUp. Otherwise, RoundUp kills all plants.

    So something that kills all plants, youíve got to think thatís got to be toxic. And so to say, ďOh, yes, kills all plants, but it doesnít harm us at all,Ē very suspicious.

    So they put this bacterial gene into these core crops, the soy, corn, canola, which is canola oil, beets, which is beet sugar, and the beet sugar is a pretty large proportion of sugar that we buy as beet sugar, alfalfa, cotton, which is interesting because cotton products are showing up with glyphosate contamination, including tampons, which is very worrisome to me.

    And tobacco. Tobacco, cigarettes are bad for you. Well, how much is it, with glyphosate in the cigarette, thatís causing the health issues associated? How much of it is due to the glyphosate? I donít know. But something, Iím sure, some part of the cigarette, toxicity is due to the glyphosate thatís in it.

    So they introduced all these crops, and it was fantastic. They could grow these crops really cheaply. Just fly an airplane over the crops, spray the crop, really, with glyphosate, and kill all the weeds. The crop, unfortunately, takes the glyphosate up, and incorporates it into its own tissues.

    So itís not like you can just wash it off. Itís there, and itís integrated into the tissues of the crop, and into your foods themselves.

    This is the part thatís really disturbing to me. And weíre not positive this is true, but the evidence is really strong.

    And Anthony Samsel and I have been working on this angle of it, this incorporation into the proteins. Any anyone who is exposed, a plant, an animal, a microbe, all of them have the chance to incorporate glyphosate into their proteins.

    This is whatís causing all these allergies that weíre saying, to all these foods. Of course, weíve got soy allergy, weíve got corn allergy, weíve got wheat allergy. Wheat is not GMO, but itís sprayed with glyphosate right before the harvest. More and more lately, thatís become a popular trend.

    So wheat contains glyphosate, incorporated into the protein, and thatís whatís causing the wheat allergy thatís like celiac disease and gluten intolerance. And all these grocery stores now have these wide sections of all these gluten-free products to choose from, which was hardly even known about 10 years ago, the concept of gluten-free.

    And so many people now canít eat wheat. And of course, milk is the other one, casein intolerance. Milk allergies, casein is a protein in milk, and cows are exposed to huge amounts of glyphosate in their feeds, so they get it into their milk.

    A peanut allergy is another one. Peanuts are sprayed with glyphosate before harvest also sometimes.
    I think all these allergies can be explained by glyphosate.

    Wendy Myers: Yes. And itís frightening because not only do the crops are sprayed with glyphosate when theyíre harvested, then theyíre sprayed again as a desiccant to dry them out. Theyíre just getting pummeled, with food thatís not organic.

    Itís frightening. Iíve read another article about even fruits. So many fruits, even if they are sprayed with the RoundUp Ready to kill weeds, itís sprayed on them to dry them out, so they last longer. Thatís just on so many foods.

    Dr. Stephanie Seneff: I was really surprised that it was in fruits. And in fact, Suzanne Honeycutt tested, I think, 12 different wines in California, and glyphosate contamination showed up in every one of them, including the wines that were biodynamic.

    Weíre not using glyphosate to control weeds, but itís in the water, itís in the rain. You canít avoid it. Itís probably in whatever they use for organic fertilizer because you donít get organic cows for the fertilizer that you use in organics.

    So youíve got glyphosate in organics. You canít avoid it. But itís considerably less from what Iíve seen. There hasnít been nearly enough testing of the food. Thatís something that was almost not done at all.
    Itís amazing. Itís by far the most used herbicide on the planet, and certainly, in this country. And our government is so convinced that itís harmless, so they donít see any reason to test for it, which is just so crazy.

    So itís been under the radar. People see problems with the insects, with the bees, the bee colony collapse and the monarch butterfly. The birds have this crazy beak overgrowth thing where the chickadees died because their beaks were so weird, they canít eat.

    All of those things, I can tie them very easily to glyphosate, as a component. So there are neonicotinoids killing the bees, but glyphosate makes the neonicotonoids much more toxic because it disrupts the liverís ability to detox it.

    And thatís true for many toxic chemicals.

    So glyphosate makes many other chemicals much more toxic than they would otherwise be, which is really deadly synergistic toxicity.

    Wendy Myers: Yes, and thatís something thatís not really being studied as the potentiation of chemicals to make one chemical much more toxic when two chemicals are combined. So thatís a very interesting conversation.

    Dr. Stephanie Seneff: Itís amazing. We have multiple chemicals that weíre exposed to all the time, and essentially, none of the studies have looked at any two in combination. All the studies are done in isolation. So itís crazy that theyíre not worrying about what might go on as the interaction between these various chemicals.

    Itís got to be much, much worse than the individual chemical because each of them can cause the other to be more toxic because of the way it affects the biology.

    14:20 Avoiding Glyphosate Exposure

    Wendy Myers: Letís talk about some of the foods that people need to be avoiding that are likely contaminated with glyphosate. We touched on some. Letís touch on organic food, and why thatís preferable.

    Dr. Stephanie Seneff: Certainly. Thatís what weíve done. When I first started glyphosate, we were started buying organic, but keeping our old stuff, thinking weíll use that up, and then replace it with organic.

    And then we got to a point where we started just pitching stuff. Itís like, ďWeíre not going to keep this. This is not organic.Ē

    Weíve gotten so strict in this household. We buy organic spices, organic beer, organic wine, everything is organic.

    I would encourage anybody listening to do the same. I think it would be a very wise choice. The extra money that you spend on food, you will get back in spades on the health issues you donít get down the road because itís an insidious toxin that gradually erode your health.

    You wake up someday with something like Crohnís disease, or Alzheimerís, or Parkinsonís disease, or rheumatoid arthritis. All these things you donít want that youíre going to get if you keep on chronically exposing yourself to glyphosate.

    Youíre going to get one or the other of these, depending on your biology, depending on what else is going on in your body, and different things, but nobody escapes from being sick if they get chronic exposure to glyphosate.

    So you can do yourself a big favor and your family by eating everything organic. I believe thatís a huge first step, but itís not enough, it turns out, because there are other ways youíre getting exposure.

    I mentioned the cotton. We need to start thinking about organic cotton clothing, organic cotton pampers, diapers, because you think of putting cotton on the babyís skin, diaper rash. The kids are having epidemic in eczema, is that due to glyphosate in the clothing? I donít know. No oneís studied it. No oneís even thought of it.

    In South America, they tested cotton products, and thatís where the found it in tampons. They found it in sterile cotton gauze.

    So imagine an open wound, and youíre putting glyphosate into it. Itís really very disturbing.
    I think itís also in drugs, in vaccines, because no oneís making any attempt to make sure that itís not there. And itís so pervasive.

    You think about a vaccine like MMR, which of course, MMR has been linked to autism. Thereís a lot of controversy about that. Thereís a movie called Vax that talks about a CDC whistleblower and issues of the CDC using some corrupt activities to suppress the fact that MMR was linked to autism.

    MMR is a live measles virus is grown on gelatin. The gelatin is sourced from pigs, from the ligaments of pigs. The pigs are fed a heavy dose of glyphosate in their feed. And the glyphosate would accumulate in the collagen, which is the precursor to the gelatin because collagen contains tons of glycine.

    And in our studies, what Anthony and I are showing is that glyphosate substitutes for glycine by mistake in the protein. So you can anticipate the measles virus is going to incorporate the glyphosate thatís in the gelatin, into its own proteins, which is going to produce a version of hemagglutinin, and thatís very hard to break down because the glyphosate makes the proteins resist the ability to break them down.

    And thatís how you get very, very strong immune reaction because you canít break that protein down. The vaccine is looking for antibodies through hemagglutinin, and thatís considered a success. Thatís what you need to do to be protected from measles.

    But the autistic kids get way, way too high levels. Theyíve shown that autistic kids have super high levels of antibodies to hemagglutinin. And then they also have autoantibodies to [mine] basic protein in their brain.

    So theyíre getting their brain on fire, which is inflammation because their immune system is attacking the nervous fibers in their brain due to molecular mimicry because thereís a sequence in there that matches the hemagglutinin.

    Thatís a lot of science, but itís really, really interesting stuff.

    Autoimmune disease, so many different autoimmune diseases are going up dramatically right now in this country, and I think glyphosate is playing a major role in every one of them.

    Wendy Myers: I really identify with what youíre saying with the MMR vaccine because when my daughter had that, she didnít talk for a year.

    Dr. Stephanie Seneff: Oh, my god. I didnít know that.

    Wendy Myers: Yes, she had an autism diagnosis. She was speaking in two-word sentences until she was three years old. She was speaking, but she was not progressing in her language. And she was ahead of the curve prior to that.

    Itís a long road, but now, sheís a lot better and totally normal-functioning, but itís amazing the [convo] youíre talking about, the vaccines and the glyphosate, and the potentiation of those, the toxic ingredients in the vaccines, and the aluminum and whatnot, and glyphosate thatís in them.

    19:17 Glyphosate, Aluminum and Sleep Disorders

    Dr. Stephanie Seneff: Weíve written papers about that as wellóthe connection between glyphosate and aluminum because glyphosate is a major metal chelator. Aluminum is a major metal, and so glyphosate binds really tightly to the aluminum and carries it into the brain stem, and delivers it at the pineal gland because in the acidic environment, it lets it go.

    The pineal gland is in the more acidic environment, so that glyphosate delivers, hands over the aluminum to the pineal gland, messes up the pineal gland, and causes sleep disorder because thatís [without] melatonin.

    But then that also causes all kinds of other problems that go with the sleep disorder. So we have a major epidemic in sleep disorder. All these people are taking different kinds of sleeping pills. And itís associated with all these neurological diseases like multiple sclerosis, Alzheimerís, autism, ADHD, depression.

    They all are associated with sleep disorder problems. So I think all of that is going on with the aluminum and the glyphosate. And weíre just crazy with the amount of aluminum we put into these vaccines.
    Iím so upset about the Gardasil vaccine. Theyíre introducing this new vaccine for the teenagers. If they manage to get past the early years, and still intact, and now, theyíre 11, 12 years old, they get hit with the Gardasil vaccine, three shots in a row.

    And the original Gardasil already had a very toxic form of aluminum. They had come up with this new formulation for aluminum thatís more effective. Aluminum is an adjuvant that makes the vaccine take better.

    So if you make the vaccine take better, that means youíre going to encourage more autoimmune disease, just like you do with the MMR. The more you get a vaccine that youíre reacting to, the more chances you have to develop an autoimmune disease through molecular mimicry.

    And thatís whatís going on with Gardasil. There are some really awful reactions the girls are having, boys too, to Gardasil.

    The Gardasil also had only three strains of the HPV virus in it, originally, the top three strains. [We do] have a 90/10 rule. But what happens is when you immunize against those three, there are over a hundred stains of the virus out there.

    So now, the other 97 can have a field day. Somebody else comes up and starts growing, and it might be more virulent than the ones you have gotten rid of.

    So people started getting cervical cancer at a very young age, following the Gardasil vaccine. Theyíre getting the very thing the vaccine is supposed to protect them from, from some strain that isnít in the vaccine.

    So that solution is Gardasil 9. This is the new form, twice as much aluminum, nine different strains, and still, there are over 91 strains out there ready to go. This is a game we canít win. The whole concept of individually immunizing you against specific strains of specific bugs, so if you get 60 vaccines, so thatís 60 different strains, and some of them have multiple, so maybe itís 150.

    Thereís a whole bunch of viruses out there that you didnít touch. Youíre still vulnerable to those things, things like AIDS, things like the Lyme disease, Borrelia. All these things are still out there, ready to attack you. You canít vaccinate against them.

    Wendy Myers: Yes, and I wrote an article about those called Vaccinations Cause Chronic Immune System Dysregulation and talking about when people get vaccinations, they improperly simulates our immune system. And theyíre more likely to get autoimmune disease, cancer, and anything your immune system protects you against is now weakened.

    Dr. Stephanie Seneff: Thatís absolutely true. The autoimmune disease is a huge thing. And thatís what I think the vaccines are working synergistically with the glyphosate to cause this epidemic in autoimmune disease.

    And what Iím talking about is things like Crohnís disease, celiac disease, inflammatory bowel disease, rheumatoid arthritis.

    Of course, all these brain diseases are really autoimmune, autism and Alzheimerís, Parkinsonís, ALS, Lou Gehricís disease. These are nasty, nasty diseases that have an autoimmune component that I think is being driven by the combination of all these vaccines, and all the toxic chemicals in them with the glyphosate, which is setting you up to be susceptible to those.

    Itís really, really a very, very deadly combination.

    23:27 How Glyphosate Disrupts Health

    Wendy Myers: How does glyphosate work exactly to disrupt our health? What are some of the health issues? You mentioned some.

    Dr. Stephanie Seneff: So Iíve mentioned, of course, the gut microbes, and thatís where it starts. Of course ,now, thereís actually a lot of [neat] research going on, on the gut microbiome. Itís a hot topic right now in research, and itís wonderful how many new papers are coming out, enormous amount of information where they all these complex analyses of the microbiome amass.

    So looking at all the different proteins within not the individual bacteria, but the whole complex and which proteins are expressed. And they can get interesting information about different diseases and whatís associated with what.

    They found, for example, that lactobacillus reuteri, R-E-U-T-E-R-I, seems to be protective against autism. And so that really caught my eye.

    And then I looked up, and I found out it makes cobalamin, and cobalamin deficiency is linked to autism. [Thatís B-12], really important vitamin.

    The bacteria in your gut make all kinds of useful materials for you that your body canít make. So we rely on them to supply us with these nutrients, really vital nutrients. And so B-12 is just one example, but they also provide us with other B-vitamins. They also provide us with the aromatic molasses, very essential.

    These are essential amino acids that our cells canít make. They come out of the pathway, the shikimate pathway the glyphosate disrupts.

    So if youíre being exposed to glyphosate, your microbes get a blocked shikimate pathway. They donít produce the aromatic amino acids, and you get a deficiency in these crucial, crucial nutrients. Those are precursors to all of the neurotransmitters.

    So weíve got dopamine, serotonin, melatonin, also the skin tanning agent, melanin, thyroid hormone, all of these things come from the shikimate pathway, including folate.

    We have a whole problem with folate these days. Theyíre putting folic acid in their bed, which I think is a really bad idea. But folate is not being produced because it comes out of that shikimate pathway. Thereís chronic exposure to glyphosate.

    So the microbes are getting exposed. It also messes up the balance of the microbes. The lack of bacillus get preferentially killed. Those are the guys that need to get going when the baby is born. Theyíre feeding on the milk, and they need to really flourish, so they can prevent the pathogens from growing.

    But if theyíre getting weakened by the glyphosate, then the pathogens have a chance to overgrow, and you get this inflammatory gut because your immune cells come in and start attacking those pathogens.
    Then you get a leaky gut, and now, you get various proteins escaping from the gut and causing all kinds of autoimmune diseases.

    Itís a terrible cascade of sequences starting with the disruption of the gut microbes.

    And so thatís one piece of it. And another piece I mentioned already, which is the liver [cyp] enzymes. Theyíve shown in studies that glyphosate disrupts this really important class of enzymes in the liver. One of the things those enzymes do is detoxify a bunch of different chemicals, including drugs that you take.

    For example, even acetaminophen, which is Tylenol, and theyíve linked Tylenol to autism. Tylenol can be very toxic if you canít metabolize it. But you need those enzymes in the liver that glyphosate disrupts to metabolize the Tylenol, so when you take Tylenol, and you donít break it down, it becomes much more toxic, and then it can cause autism.

    So the liver cyp enzymes, and of course, that messes up the liver as well. The cyp enzymes are also essential for activating vitamin D, and we have a major problem with that in vitamin D deficiency today in the United States. Theyíve discovered this within the past 5 or 10 years. And now, theyíre giving everybody vitamin D supplements.

    The problem is the liver canít activate the vitamin D. Thatís why itís low.

    And also the cyp enzymes are used to produce bile acids. So if the bile acids canít flow, all kinds of things donít happen, and the mineral distribution gets all screwed up. So we get a really big problem with minerals. Mineral become both toxic and deficient at the same time, and that includes iron, manganese, zinc, cobalt, copper, molybdenum, all of those are really crucial minerals, which you need in very small amounts, but theyíre really important for certain enzymes that depend on them.

    Your body has really sophisticated mechanisms for pushing them around because theyíre toxic. Just like oxygen, theyíre both toxic and essential. And we have these smart mechanisms but glyphosate is a train wreck for them.

    So glyphosate holds onto the mineral and prevents our natural system from delivering it in a natural way. And then it will do things like carrying it into the brain stem and causing all kinds of trouble there.
    Wendy Myers: Isnít that how glyphosate works? It chelates and grabs on the minerals in the plant, and removes them. And thatís how it kills it. Thatís what itís doing to you too.

    Dr. Stephanie Seneff:Thatís right. It totally messes up the minerals, but worse than that is this thing about going into the proteins. And this is something I only discovered last December. Itís hard for me to believe itís only been that long.

    Really a beautiful story. Anthony Samsel and I have been working together almost from the beginning. I heard from Don Huber about glyphosate. And shortly after that, I actually did visit Dr. Mercolaís office, and I did an interview with him.

    Dr. Mercola said to meóI shared with him, I said, ďJesus, glyphosate. I just heard about it. What do you think?Ē And he said, ďYou need to talk to Anthony Samsel.Ē So I did!

    I talked to Anthony Samsel, and then we just started going on a roll. Weíve just been collaborating ever since. Weíve published a series of five papers for glyphosate. We call them 1 through 5, in the title, with a different topic in each one, but all connected to glyphosate.

    So last December, Anthony called me up and he says, ďStephanie, I think glyphosate is getting into the proteins by mistake in place of glycine.Ē

    I said, ďWhat are you talking about?Ē

    ďNo, I really think itís happening.Ē

    Heís a really brilliant chemist. He worked at Arthur D. Little for many years. He has all kinds of patents to his name. He has a real intuitive understanding of chemistry. I really respect his knowledge. He has a vast, vast knowledge.

    He said, ďI think this is happening because thatís how you can explain all these things weíre seeing in all these diseases that are correlated. Every one of them you can figure out how it would happen because of glyphosate substituting for glycine

    And so he was excited enough and convincing enough that I decided to take a look. So I just basically started reading one paper after another about the role of glycine in various proteins. And so you can find a whole bunch of literature out there about a specific protein.

    Itís really neat how they figure out proteins because theyíll look at all the different species that make this protein. They have all these different variants of the proteins with different sequences. But every one of them has glycine at that one spot.

    For example, myosin. Myacine is a muscle protein, really important for muscle movement. Itís a motor. And myosin contains a glycine [position] 699 in that sequence. At the 699th position, it contains glycine, all the myosins of all the different species.

    And if you change that glycine into alanine, in other words, you take out the glycine and put alanine instead, alanine just has one extra methyl group, which is a very small change in the molecule. But it ruins it. The molecule has only 1% capacity with alanine instead of glycine.

    So glyphosate, instead of glycine, would be much worse than alanine because itís a much bulkier molecule, even more trouble to put glyphosate instead of glycine. That would totally ruin it.

    And so we have chronic fatigue syndrome. I think itís because glyphosate is getting into the muscles, getting into the myosin, and causing the muscles to basically be immobilized. They are just so sluggish because theyíve got some proportion of those myosin molecules have glyphosate instead of glycine.

    So itís really, really fascinating. And even the very molecule that the proteins that glyphosate disrupts in the plants that Monsanto says is it does a key toxic action, is this protein that itís in the shikimate pathway, itís called EPSPS, the protein, UPSP.

    And that protein actually has an essential glycine at the active side. And so if that glycine is replaced even by alanine, it reduces the activity level by quite a bit. If you replace it with glyphosate, you would be expected to kill it completely.

    And in fact, theyíve shown that glyphosate shows up in the active side. It gets in the way in that active side and prevents the substrate from getting in. Thatís how it disrupts the enzymes.

    So they know all of that but they donít go so far as to say that it replaces the glycine. But that is obviously how it could get in to the active side is by replacing the glycine.

    And theyíve shown, in fact, that e. coli developed a resistance. They naturally developed a resistance to glyphosate by replacing that glycine with alanine. And alanine, again, has that extra methyl. So they replaced it with alanine, so their enzymes are limping along.

    Itís like 60 folds less active than it was before, but itís completely resistant to glyphosate.

    The e. coli can actually get along with that enzyme, what that defective form of the enzyme. They do better in glyphosate exposure than the guys who donít have that defective form. And thatís because they donít have glycine at that position, so theyíre not susceptible to the glyphosate poisoning anymore.

    So itís very clear that thatís whatís going on. The glyphosate is substituting for glycine in the protein.

    And thatís how you can explain all these neurological diseases, including autism. Each one of them, ALS, autism, Alzheimerís, even the Prion disease, itís the mad cow in the cows, every one of them.

    You can find literature that talks about specific glycine that seems to be the source of trouble, highly conserved glycine. Itís truly, truly amazing how easy it is to figure this out. Itís incredible.

    Transcript: #166 Glyphosate and How to Detox it with Dr. Stephanie Seneff
    Part 2

    33:15 Glyphosate and Diseases

    Wendy Myers: Youíve recently developed a new insight about an insidious way in which glyphosate can slowly erode our health, causing a lot of debilitating diseases, can you explain this?

    Dr. Stephanie Seneff: So thatís totally because of this, getting into the proteins by mistake. Itís a very slow, insidious process. So youíre getting a little bit of glyphosate every time you drink a glass of water, every time you eat some soy, a little bit of glyphosate. And most of it probably goes out eventually.

    You get out through your urine or through your feces.

    But there is some small percentage that is taken up by your cells, and then incorporated into God knows which protein. Some protein gets stuck in there. And then depending upon which protein, depending upon where, it could totally ruin that proteinís ability to do its job.

    And worse than that, it can make that protein unable to be broken down. Thatís the really key problem because you look at Alzheimerís disease, and you have all that amyloid beta plaque, that stuff is a consequence of glyphosate getting into the protein and preventing the cell from being able to break the protein down.

    So you have this broken protein you canít get rid of, and eventually, you pile up so much garbage that the cell basically canít function anymore.

    So a lot of these diseases have to do with the accumulation of mis-folded proteins that they canít clear.

    Worse than that, glyphosate disrupts the mechanism by which the proteins are cleared. And so this gets into sulfate, which is my big topic. Iíve worked on sulfate nearly since the beginning. Ever since I started looking in autism, I was interested in the idea that sulfate deficiency was causing autism.

    And sulfate is essential in that outside of the cell, there are these complex sugar [changes] that the cell surrounds itself with, and thereís sulfate in those. And those are taken in by the cell, into the liposomes to help the cell break down the proteins.

    So if there is sulfate deficiency, itís hard to break down broken proteins. And so on top of that, you have these proteins with this glyphosate in them that makes them very difficult to break down as well. So itís a double hit, and your cell just gets completely overwhelmed with this garbage that it canít clear.

    So one way to fix thatósometimes the cell basically shuts down and dies, spills some contents out into the environment, and thatís how you can end up with fungus infection problems because the yeast can actually come in and clear the garbage. And I think thatís one of the things theyíre doing for us.

    We have a lot of problems with yeast infection these daysópeople having various issues with fungus and yeast. I think theyíre performing a useful role in clearing some of this debris that are own cells canít clear because theyíre too sick.

    Wendy Myers: So, so interesting. I have a lot of clients coming to me who have fungal infections they just canít shake no matter what they do.

    Dr. Stephanie Seneff: Organic diet I think would be really, really great for helping to fix that.

    36:06 Oxalates

    Wendy Myers: Letís talk about oxalates. Oxalates are a big problem. Almost every single person I test, doing organic tests on, theyíve got high oxalates. So what are oxalates, and how does glyphosate contribute to them?

    Dr. Stephanie Seneff: Thatís a very interesting topic. And itís also, by the way, connected to autism. Many autistic kids have high levels of oxalates in their urine.

    I think thereís a whole shift in the way metabolism is working. I suspect there may even be this concept of replacing sulfate with oxalate because of the sulfate deficiency because they have some similar properties. They have some similar biophysical properties.

    But whatís happening is that there are several things that are going wrong. The microbes in the gut that metabolize the oxalates, the enzymes they use to do that depend on glycine and also depend on manganese, and both of those things are disrupted by glyphosate.

    So youíre not getting the oxalates properly broken down, if theyíre coming in, in the diet to begin with.

    But also glyphosate itself can be converted to oxalate. It can break down and become oxalate. So it can be a source of oxalate itself.

    I think there are complex changes in the way the liver is managing because the liver has all these different possible pathways that it can use to bring things to different places. And thereís a blockage in the pathway that causes them to go this other way and end up producing all these extra oxalates.

    So itís basically just messing up your metabolic pathways in such a way to encourage this overproduction of oxalates, which of course, they can crystalize. The big problem with oxalates is that they can crystalize with the calcium. Calcium oxalate crystals can even get into your brain.

    They can get into your kidneys and cause all kinds of issues with kidney stones and things like that. So theyíre nasty.

    Wendy Myers: Letís talk a little bit about how oxalates gum up your systems, and interfere with your sulfation pathways.

    Dr. Stephanie Seneff: Iím not sure I can answer that. Letís see. You have something in mind?

    Wendy Myers: [Whatís the difference between] sulfation and what not?

    38:30 Detoxing Glyphosates

    Wendy Myers: Letís go back to glyphosate. What can people do protect themselves from glyphosate exposure, and even detox glyphosate?

    Dr. Stephanie Seneff: Detoxing is a really good point because Iíve had read a couple of papers now where theyíre working with the cows.

    So thereís a nice paper where they had cows that were sick, and they showed they had high levels of glyphosate in their urine. And they put them on an organic diet, and then they fed them bentonite clay, sauerkraut juice, fulvic acid and humic acid, which are organic acids from the soil.

    So itís a very interesting set of things to detox. And they found that their health improved and their glyphosate levels in the urine went down following those treatments.

    And those are all things that people can take. Theyíre pretty harmless, I think, as far as side effects and things like that.

    Sauerkraut juice, of course, is going to have a lot of probiotics. So if you think in terms of eating probiotic foods, foods that naturally contain live culture, thatís really good to do.

    I love cheese, and I think cheese is a good thing to eat for that reason. There are kinds of exotic cheese are wonderful, organic of course. It has to be organic.

    And then also, the other interesting thing is that there are some really [wheat], some plants, that have very interesting properties to help you with the sulfate problem. Dandelions, in particular, and also barberries.

    So there are some products you can get that are derived from dandelions and barberries, and these things have also been shown to help to fix the illnesses that glyphosate causes. I suspect they are doing it by supporting sulfate transport.

    Iíve done a lot of research on sulfate and it is quite interesting that the aromatic amino acids, which glyphosate disrupts, are sulfate transporters because theyíre carried in the blood with the sulfate attached to them. And then when they arrive at their destination, the sulfate comes off.

    And whatever this is, this neurotransmitter or something, is doing whatever it does with its signaling, but itís also saying, ďHey, hereís your sulfate.Ē

    So itís handing the sulfate over to the cell that receives it.

    And thatís true for vitamin D too. Vitamin D comes in a sulfated form. Cholesterol sulfate is a really important molecule.

    So all the sterols, all the hormones, the testosterone, the progesterone, estrogen, all those sex hormones, the cortisol, and also this thing called DHEA, all of these are sulfated in transit. And these are all derived from cholesterol.

    Cholesterol is a really important molecule, and I would encourage people to eat a high cholesterol diet, which is surprising because a lot of people are on a low cholesterol diet because theyíre worried about heart disease.

    I will tell you that I think if you eat cholesterol, youíll actually lower your serum cholesterol levels because you will protect your liver from having to make cholesterol if you supply it in your food. Itís really a better thing to do.

    So I believe in a high cholesterol diet.

    Eggs are great, organic eggs, because they have all kinds of nutrients. They have a lot of different minerals. Mineral deficiencies are at issue, so you want to do bone broth, organic again. Get the bones from grass-fed cows, cook them for a long time, slow cook in water, and make a terrific broth. Put some veggies in there.

    Green veggies are awesome, especially cruciferous vegetables. They contain a lot of sulfur. Garlic and onions are also really good source of sulfur.

    And of course, seafood. Seafood is an outstanding source of all kinds of nutrients, especially the mussels, the clams, the oysters. These are really, really healthy foods.

    So you want to eat a nutrient-rich diet, micronutrient-rich diet, high in probiotics and high in, what they call polyphenols, which is the colorful fruits and vegetables. They have a lot of polyphenols. Those can also transport sulfate.

    So a lot of it has to do with making sure you can move the sulfate around in your body. You also need to synthesize the sulfate, and for that you need sunlight. Sunlight exposure to the skin, sunlight exposure to the eyes, is really good for helping you to synthesize the sulfate. And then youíve got all these sulfate transporters available, the aromatics, the polyphenols, and the sterols coming from cholesterol and all of its derivatives.

    So those things are all really, really important for your health.

    Wendy Myers: I ate fish eggs quite often to get the high cholesterolóitís really insane.

    Dr. Stephanie Seneff: Thatís great. Especially if too expensive for a lot of people.

    Wendy Myers: Iím crazy because I eat them specifically to get more cholesterol in my diet.

    Dr. Stephanie Seneff: Theyíre great. Itís not just the cholesterol too. They have all kinds of good nutrients, just like eggs. In general, anything thatís in the reproductive system of some organism is going to be very, very rich, anything thatís supplying nutrients for the next generation.

    An egg has got all the nutrients you need to make a chicken in there. And itís the same thing with the fish eggs. They can make a fish, so you can think thereís a tremendous amount of nutritional value in those eggs of any form.

    Wendy Myers: And theyíre so good and crunchy. Not everyone would agree with me on that statement, but I just crave them. I donít know why.

    43:42 Glyphosate and Hormones

    Wendy Myers: So letís talk about how glyphosate interrupts our hormones, and cholesterol, like you said, because so many people are having issues with hormones, reproductive issues, and horrible periods, menopause. How is glyphosate contributing to that?

    Dr. Stephanie Seneff: Glyphosate is an estrogenic agent. It actually is an endocrine disruptor, which is a really, really serious accusation for any kind of a chemical. Endocrine disruptors are terrible because they can have a damage and the affect it at extremely minute levels.

    And in fact, in vitro study on cancer cells, breast cancer cells, they grew these cancer cells in culture, and they found that if they expose them to levels of glyphosate measured in parts per trillion, which is really, really, tiny, tiny levels of glyphosate, cause those breast cancer cells to proliferate. So it made the tumor grow.

    Really amazing.

    Glyphosate has been shown to have a major problem with the testes. There are these cells in the testes, nurse cells, they help out the sperm. And those guys get clobbered by glyphosate. They canít function according to their normal way of functioning.

    Thatís going to mess up the sperm because it causes the sperm to not develop correctly as a consequence of these helper cells being messed up.

    In the adrenals, thereís a study on RoundUp. In fact, thereís more than one study on RoundUp that showed RoundUp suppresses the ability of the adrenal glands to produce the adrenal hormones. And thatís going to be all these crucial hormones for controlling.

    Lots of people have hormone imbalance problems, and that includes DHEA, adrenaline, obviously from the adrenals. And also sex hormones. The adrenal glands also make sex hormones.

    So glyphosate messes up the ability toóthereís this protein called StAR. I forgot what it stands for, but StAR, S-T-A-R, a nice name, because it is a start. Itís a superstar. And that protein is essential for getting the cholesterol into the mitochondria.

    The cholesterol needs to get into the mitochondria in order to be able to turn it into these steroid hormones. If that gets blocked by RoundUp, and therefore, the adrenals canít make the hormones.

    46:05 Vitamin C Deficiency

    And I think thereís another whole issue with vitamin C that Iíve been investigating lately. I donít have the complete story yet, but I see tremendous examples of people who are suffering from something that looks an awful lot like severe vitamin C deficiency.

    I think glyphosate disrupts the red blood cellís ability to maintain vitamin C in the reduced form. And actually, vitamin C can become oxalate too, so if youíre taking high doses of vitamin C, and then your body isnít able to use it correctly, it could be thatís just being driven to straight into oxalate and causing the oxalate issues.

    But the vitamin C is absolutely essential for the adrenal glands. They really need the vitamin C to be able to produce their hormones. And so if the vitamin C is not maintained in the reduced state, they canít use it. And the red blood cells, thereís an enzyme called G6PD, glucose 6 phosphate dehydrogenase, really fascinating protein that has a huge number of mutations these days.

    I think itís one of the most highly mutated proteins in humans, so there are many, many different variants of this protein. I think G6PD is under attack by glyphosate, and so the body is trying to come up with, the evolution is trying to come up with some solution that can get around the glyphosate problem, and so far, not really succeeding.

    So we have a lot of issues with G6PD deficiency in the red blood cells, which is crucial for maintaining vitamin C in the reduced state.

    So that it doesnít happen, you get oxidation damage in the blood vessels, and that of course, leads to things like heart disease because you get this atherosclerosis, all this inflammation, all that stuff. It comes from an inability to maintain these powerful antioxidant agents like vitamin C in the reduced state.

    So thatís a huge issue also.

    47:56 Glyphosate and MTHFR

    Wendy Myers: You touched earlier on folic acid and how glyphosate can interfere in the many things related to folic acid. Can you relate that back to MTHFR and how that can be problematic?

    Dr. Stephanie Seneff: Thatís a very complicated story. Youíve probably seen that big, fancy picture of how you get the sulfur, you have the methionine, and you can get the methyl off of methionine. And the methylation pathway gets blocked if MTHFR is busted.

    A lot of people have MTHFR issues and thatís going to lead to impaired methylation capacity, and methylation is really important for lots of different things, including the DNA, DNA expression as well, the different protein expression of different proteins in the body.

    So methylation is a very important control mechanism that becomes defective if you canít get those methyl groups off of the methionine. And thatís what happens with this MTHFR problem.

    Folate is very interesting. And I did a whole, one-hour presentation on folate and folic acid at Autism One last year, maybe a year ago, or maybe at [Weston Price], Iím not sure where, at Weston Price, I think, last November, on folic acid.

    U.S. requires folic acid now as a nutritional fortification in wheat-based products because they got so concerned about this whole issue of neural tube defects related to folate deficiency.

    People knock around the terms folate, folic acid, as if theyíre the same thing. And that is not true at all. And in fact, folic acid, which is whatís in the wheat, is an unmethylated, oxidized form of the thing you want, which is the methylfolate.

    So when you eat a lot of folic acid, your liver is compelled to both reduce it and methylate it before it can actually be useful to you. And in doing so, the liver is depleting itself of both methyl groups and of the reduction capacity.

    So glutathione is so important for reducing things, but if youíre busy reducing folic acid to folate, you donít have any more glutathione left. Youíre going to use up your glutathione.

    People thing folic acid is the same thing as folate, and itís just not true. And so what youíre getting in your bread can actually work against you. It can actually cause folate deficiency in the brain. And itís really wild because what happens is that the liver is so exhausted from having converted all this past folic acid to folate that itís just, ďOkay, Iím not going to do this anymore. Iím just going to let the folic acid go into the blood.Ē

    You donít want to have folic acid in your blood because what happens is that it binds to the folate receptors in the brain irreversibly, and blocks them. So then you canít get the folate into the brain because the folic acid is in the way.

    And the folic acid is useless to the brain.

    So itís really truly amazing that you think by taking folic acid, youíre actually solving the problem. Itís actually making the problem worse.

    Wendy Myers: Itís amazing. Even folateó

    Dr. Stephanie Seneff: Methylfolate is what you could take, and I think that would be good if you have a folate deficiency problem, and since youíre providing both the methyl and the reduced capacity, so youíre providing those two important things.

    The folic acid is a carrier, but it doesnít have any of the good stuff on it. So thatís the problem with it.

    Wendy Myers: Do you think thereís any issue with taking methylated folate and perhaps that being blocked is people have too much folic acid in their blood from eating breads and grains?

    Dr. Stephanie Seneff: I know. Maybe you need to take methionine or something that could give you methionine like n-acetyl cysteine, something that is aóand you need antioxidant. So for example, vitamin C. You need to take things that are going to be antioxidants, and takes things that are going to provide methyl groups.

    Glycine actually provides methyl. And I didnít mention this, but this is pretty amazing because glycine is normally metabolized in the gut by the microbes. And that metabolism actually produces a methyl group that then can be added to folate to make methylfolate.

    And it turns out, folic acid canít do that.

    So if you take folic acid, the gut bacteria have no chance of methylating because itís not reduced. Itís oxidized. So thatís why the folic acid just goes straight to the liver. But folate, glycine can add methyl to folate to make methylfolate out of it, but it needs to get that out of the glycine.

    And the pathway that does that has an essential glycine in the enzyme that can wreck it with glyphosate.

    So glyphosate can both compete as a substrate because it is a glycine molecule. Itís a glycine on steroids. Itís got extra stuff stuck onto its nitrogen.

    So it can both compete with the glycine to mess up the input, and it can get into the protein that takes the methyl off the glycine and mess that protein up. So basically, the glycine doesnít become a source of methyl.

    Wendy Myers: So many reasons to not eat bread, so many reasons.

    Dr. Stephanie Seneff: I know. Itís a shame too because actually, I think wheat is not a bad food, if itís heirloom wheat, organic. If I eat bread, itís always heirloom, organic wheat with sourdough.

    Wendy Myers: I donít have an issue with sourdough. If I go to a really nice restaurant and I know theyíre using really good flour, itís not enriched, itís not this garbage thatís enriched with iron and folic acid, it doesnít bother me.

    The breads in Europe, they donít bother me. But here, forget it.

    Dr. Stephanie Seneff: Itís interesting, isnít it? Itís so interesting with this country. Weíre so ridiculous because we have a problem with iron. We have a major problem with anemia, but we also have a problem with iron toxicity.

    The kind of iron that they put in is a bad form of iron. The kind of folate they put in is a bad form of folate. Theyíre using cheap products to produce this inedible stuff. And theyíre not solving any problems. Theyíre just making it worse.

    And so itís stupid. You just wish that they could come to their senses and just stop doing these crazy things that are making your food inedible.

    54:27 Glyphosate and the Liver

    Wendy Myers: Letís talk about how glyphosate interferes in the liverís ability to detox. We touched on that before. Iíve begun detox. I have a detox program. There are so many things working against us for our bodiesí ability to detox 700 chemicals on average we have in our body, and the toxic metals we have.

    So how does glyphosate contribute to our liverís inability to detox?

    Dr. Stephanie Seneff: Thatís a great question. I talked about the cytochrome p450 enzymes before, and thatís a serious piece of the puzzle, is that it distrusts the cytochrome p450 enzymes, which are really crucial for a lot of toxic chemicals are metabolized through them.

    There are also other things going on. It messes up the sulfate because I mentioned the sulfate, itís a train wreck for sulfate in every which way. It disrupts the sulfate transporters, it disrupts the sulfate synthesis, the [inose] molecule that synthesizes sulfate in the skin, and thereís also in the liver. It depends on sunlight.

    And that also has crucial glycine that if you change them to glyphosate, the enzyme will be broken.

    There are several different sulfur enzymes involved in sulfate transport. Even, for example, the enzyme that produces methionine from sulfate, all these different things are disrupted.

    E. coli. Thereís a wonderful study that showed all these enzymes that are suppressed by glyphosate, and there were four or five different enzymes related to sulfur, relating to sulfur metabolism that were suppressed.

    And so sulfation is one way that you detox as well. If thatís broken, you canít detox.

    Metyhlation is screwed up. Sulfation is screwed up. Glutathione, what happens, I think, is that the liver favors glutathione [inhalation] as a way to detox. You need to add stuff to the molecule in order to make it more water-soluble, so you can flush it out.

    So what happens is that it goes to the liver, the liver puts something on there, like a methyl or sulfate or glutathione. And then it ships it back to the gut. And then it hopefully goes out through the feces in that second round, after itís been modified by the liver.

    Thatís a way to get rid of a lot of these toxic chemicals that are coming in through the food.

    But basically, youíre stuck with glutathione inhalation. I think thatís the one that becomes much more prevalent in the presence of glyphosate because the other guys arenít working. So you end up throwing away glutathione.

    Every time you detox with glutathione, youíre losing it. And glutathione is a super, super important antioxidant in the liver. The liver loses this ability to protect itself from oxidation damage, and then you get into liver cirrhosis, and then you get into fatty liver disease.

    Glyphosate causes fatty liver disease because it messes up fructose metabolism, and thatís a whole other story. But the poor liver, itís piling itself up with fat. It doesnít have enough cytochrome p450 enzymes. Itís got trouble with the sulfur pathways. Often, it doesnít have enough cholesterol because cholesterol synthesis is, youíre eating a low fat diet, so thatís also hurting it.

    And so the poor liver is just on its last leg. And the liver is essential for getting rid of those toxic chemicals.

    Wendy Myers: Thatís why I encourage everyone to take glutathione, to help it out. The glutathione precursors like NEC. Itís so important.

    Dr. Stephanie Seneff: There are several different sulfur-containing supplements that could be useful. Thereís l-lipolic acid, and thereís MSN, methylsulfonylmethane, which some people have found to be very effective.

    And of course, garlic. I love garlic. These are all good sources of sulfur.

    But you have to be careful. A lot of people have sulfur sensitivity problems, especially sulfides in wines and things like that. And that is also, I think, due to glyphosate because glyphosate is messing up the enzyme that oxides sulfide to sulfate. It depends on molybdenum.

    And so thatís one of those minerals that glyphosate could disrupt and prevent sulfide oxidase from being able to do its job. Sulfide is really, really toxic if you canít oxidize it to sulfate. And at the same time, you have a sulfate deficiency, so you get stuck with this sulfide that you canít rid of. And that can cause a lot of damage because itís very reactive.

    Wendy Myers: Yes, that was my next question. When the glyphosate interferes in sulfation, people that have garlic or sulfur food sensitivity, is the glyphosate is contributing to that? When I go eat Korean food, I will actually vomit. This has happened a number of times.

    And I finally learned on the third time not to eat Korean food because itís very heavy in garlic. Ethnic foods, Iíll actually vomit, because your body just canít, or my body, just canít handle that amount of garlic.

    Dr. Stephanie Seneff: Thatís very interesting. I hear a lot of people tell me that because I keep saying youíve got to get sulfur, youíve got to get sulfur. And they say, ďNo, I canít eat sulfur-containing foods. They make me sick.Ē

    And Iíve had enough people tell me that. And thatís been puzzling me. Thatís been on my to-do list. I got to figure this out. And I do think thatís part of whatís going on is that sulfide oxidase gets blocked by glyphosate. And then that makes the sulfides really toxic. And then that will also encourage the growth of sulfur-reducing bacteria in the gut.

    So you get an excess of desulfovibrio, which will reduce the sulfide to hydrogen sulfide gas. But if you have too much hydrogen sulfide gas at one time, hydrogen sulfide gas is a very interesting molecule which has benefits, just like oxygen. It has beneficial effects, but too much of it can kill you.

    So you can get a real problem in your gut if all of a sudden, youíre producing lots of hydrogen sulfide gas because youíve got this block that canít get you to sulfate. They canít get rid of sulfate. And of course, at the same time, youíve got this major sulfate deficiency problem, which is whatís going to drive you towards oxalates. Thatís how youíre going to get more oxalates because thatís the balance of theówhat can I use instead of sulfate to help with the [bud] because youíve got to have the right buffering in there.

    So you get into a nasty situation, you really need the sulfate in your body to be healthy. But the question is how to get it there, past all those problems.

    And so one thing I recommend for people, I would be curious to know if people who have sensitivities to sulfur in their diet, if they soak in Epsom salt baths. Do they also have some kind of a bad reaction, or does that work? Because thatís the way to get the sulfate through the skin, bypassing the gut, and so that might be a safer method to get sulfate supplies to your body without having to actually eat sulfur. So I would recommend that.

    I would be curious to know actually, for people who are sensitive to sulfur, whether theyíre also sensitive to Epsom salts. I donít know that answer yet.

    Wendy Myers: Thatís so interesting because Epsom salts are magnesium sulfate. Transdermally is a great way to get nutrients into your body, and toxins, but a great way to get nutrients too.

    1:01:14 Detoxing Glyphosates with Near Infrared Sauna

    Wendy Myers: Can you talk a little bit, if youíre able to, about if you can detox glyphosate with an infrared sauna? Can you sweat glyphosate out through your skin?

    Dr. Stephanie Seneff: I think infrared sauna is an awesome thing to do. I really recommend it. Infrared light, in fact, is very interesting. There are studies that have been done by people like Gerry Pollack. Gerry Pollack is an expert on water in Seattle, Washington. Heís a professor at the university there, Washington University.

    He has shown in his papers that infrared light can cause these, what they call the exclusion zones, to grow forth fourfold, to get four times as big. And the exclusion zone is this area, like in the blood vessel, thereís an area around the wall, inside the wall of the blood vessel of structured water.

    Thatís basically what I call liquid ice. Itís like jello. Itís a form of water thatís crystalline and pure. And so the body forms this pure crystalline water around the blood vessel, all over, all of the blood vessels, a thin layer of this crystalline water.

    And infrared light makes that thing grow four times as big. And in growing four times as big, it gets four times as much energy out of it because what it does is itís like a battery. It creates a separation of charge. Itís a really fascinating space that Iíve been struggling to learn about because itís a difficult topic.

    But water is essential for life, and water is an extremely unusual molecule. It has this fourth phase. It has the three phases, liquid, gas and solid. But it also has a fourth phase. And thatís this gel. Itís like jello.

    And that fourth phase is essential for the blood vessels to be healthy.

    You need to sulfate to make that form, which is why you have to make sure to get plenty of sulfate to be able to create that proper structured water all around your blood vessels, which keeps the things that are in the blood inside the pipe, instead of having to just leak out nearly to various places where theyíre not supposed to go.

    So it gives you tight control over where those nutrients, and also any toxins that might be in the blood, to keep them out, and not getting them into the tissues.

    1:03:43 Final Tips: Avoiding Exposure and Detoxing Glyphosate

    Wendy Myers: So it seems hopeless. Weíre talking about glyphosate that itís in the air, itís in the food, itís in the water, itís in everything. Can you just give the listeners some words of advice? Step 1, 2, 3, to avoid glyphosate as much as you can and detox it.

    Dr. Stephanie Seneff: I mentioned before those various nutrients that you can take. I guess I should also say herbs and spices. Those are also good sulfate transporters. Things like parsley.

    Wendy Myers: Cilantro maybe?

    Dr. Stephanie Seneff: You can take cilantro andó

    Wendy Myers: Dandelion? Dandelion greens?

    Dr. Stephanie Seneff: Yes, dandelion greens. All these things that have exotic taste, very tasty foods. They feel like theyíre loaded with nutrients, the herbs, thyme and basil. Basil was one that I was thinking of, which is so great.

    Just take the basil and grind it up, and make a spaghetti with just the basil sauce. Really, very, very nutritious.

    And those things contain these special molecules, these polyphenols that will help with the sulfate transport.

    So you want to eat a lot of herbs. You want to put a lot of herbs into your foods. And that includes, of course, garlic and onions as well, which weíre very fond of garlic and onions because theyíre so easy to get, and theyíre so delicious. We can get them organic too, fortunately.

    One thing great is that thereís more and more opportunity to buy organic. Itís growing exponentially actually, which is fantastic, in step with the exponential growth in glyphosate.

    I was surprised there. And so more and more people are waking up, and I think that not only are you keeping your family healthy when you buy organic, youíre also promoting your organic industry.

    The farmers will eventually say, ďHey, why am I poisoning myself growing this stupid crop that nobody wants? If I can convert my crop to be organic, I can make more money. I can be safe from toxic exposure myself. Why wouldnít I do that?Ē

    So Iím hoping for a revolution among the farmers that they will start to wake up and realize.

    And also, of course, the glyphosate is failing. The weeds are becoming resistant. This is part of why itís growing exponentially because they have to keep on adding more and more glyphosate to kill the weeds. They have stronger doses.

    And this is also why theyíre now introducing these complex chemicals.

    Dr. Stephanie Seneff: They have this new herbicide combination, Enlist Duo, which is both glyophosate and 2,4-D. 2,4-D is a component of Agent Orange.
    And so the government is like, ďYes, no problem. Go ahead.Ē

    The government is just completely [inaudible 01:06:28] days ago about this concept of poisoning ourselves with our food. They just donít seem to get it, that this is a huge crisis. Itís going to take the country down if we donít do something different.

    So consumers have power with their pocketbook. So you buy that organic, and you say, ďOkay, Iím spending more money. It looks hard. Hereís this organic one. It looks the same. Why am I spending 30% more?Ē

    But remember, youíre not getting that glyphosate when you do that. Youíre keeping your family healthy, and youíre supporting organic agriculture, which is also sustainable agriculture that will help with global warming as well because chemical-based agriculture is a major component of the global warming problem.

    And so itíll help with that as well.

    So you can feel like you are spending your money very wise when you buy organic, and youíre spending your money very stupidly when you donít. Encourage people to switch to organic.

    I think thatís going to be the way we solve this problem. Weíre going to have more and more people that realize when they switch to organic, they feel better, and then they tell their friends, and through word of mouth, weíll eventually get a revolution where our food will be fixed.

    But itís not going to happen from the government because the government has been so thoroughly subsidized by this industry that theyíre just unable to think any differently than to say, ďThis is fine. It doesnít matter. We can poison people. Itís not a problem.Ē

    They just canít get past that, which is really frustrating for me.

    Wendy Myers: Itís really unfortunate. It just breaks my heart to know all the people, theyíre going to be getting cancer and autoimmune disease. Dementia is on the rise because people are not being protected by their government like they are in Europe and Russia, and even China, are being more protected.

    Dr. Stephanie Seneff: Itís very embarrassing that Putin is coming on strong about, ďWeíre going to be the major supplier of organic to the world.Ē

    Thatís not in the news here. Itís only in the alternative will you learn that. Theyíre not saying, ďPutin is going organic.Ē They donít want to even know that. Heís just a big bad guy. How could he be doing something good?

    But he is. Heís really pushing organic in Russia, and I think itís a very smart move. And we should be doing the same.

    Government could be very powerful if they would just wake up and change. And it just seems like theyíre unreachable.

    Wendy Myers: Itís not surprising when Monsanto has been lying in the governmentís pockets since the 80ís. Itís a very systematic thing that theyíve been doing to get control of our food supply. Itís sickening, but thatís our reality, and we can make choices. We do have control.

    Dr. Stephanie Seneff: We just have to not get so angry about it, but just say, ďI can do this on my own.Ē

    Dr. Stephanie Seneff: The really good news about this country is that the organic is more and more available. So if you do decide to switch to organic, itís not so painful anymore. It used to be hard to get organic. And now, you can also order it online, like Thrive Market.

    So if you canít find it locally, you live in some small town and some obscure place, you can order it online.

    So there are ways you can get organic. Again, itís more money, but you think about the money youíre not spending on some horrible disease.

    If you have a kid with autism, and that is just not only the expense, but also itís just a tragedy involved with all of that. To avoid something like that, why wouldnít you spend 30% more on your food for that opportunity? I think it just totally makes sense.

    Wendy Myers: Are you going to spend it on food now, or medications, doctors or nursing homes later? Thatís going to be more way expensive when you donít have the money, and youíre not able to work.

    Dr. Stephanie Seneff: Thatís true. Once you canít work, thatís a huge amount of money spent because itís money not earned.

    01:10:10 The Most Pressing Health Issue in the World Today

    Wendy Myers: And so, I have a question that I ask everyone that comes on the podcast. What do you think is the most pressing health issue in the world today?

    Dr. Stephanie Seneff: I think I would have to say autism, if I have to pick one disease. Certainly, glyphosate is the chemical thatís the most pressing chemical.

    If we were just to ban glyphosate, we could make a huge amount of progress on world health. And I think among all of the diseases that glyphosate causes, the biggest tragedy to me is autism because that is taking away the life of a young child.

    Itís just so costly to society. Itís going to disrupt the school system. My projection [inaudible 01:10:47] 50% of the kids with autism by 2032. That is a very scary number. And thatís just based on extending the exponential curve that CDC has shown for the past three decades.

    Once we have half the children with autism, weíre going to be in quite a mess. And I just think we have to avoid that. We have to do everything we can to stop that. So I would say autism.

    And of course, autism is part of a much larger problem with the children. They have so many other issues, many, many autoimmune diseases. ADHD is something like 12% of the kids. Thatís attention deficit disorder. And all these allergies, these food allergies, asthma, eczema, celiac disease, inflammatory bowel disease, there are so many problems.

    And even children are getting rheumatoid arthritis now. Itís just crazy.

    The children are so important because thatís our future. I feel really bad for all the old people who are getting Alzheimerís as well, of course. But their life is mostly over, so itís sad, but itís not as tragic to me as a young child getting autism. Itís just horrible.

    Wendy Myers: Itís devastating. I was there myself when my daughter was diagnosed. Luckily, I knew exactly what to do. All guns a-blazing. And I detoxed her for aluminum. She was already on organic diet. School, occupational therapy, speech therapy.
    But that was really expensive.

    Sheís better now. Luckily, I had the resources to be able to do that. But a lot of families, they donít know what to do, and too little too late. Itís heartbreaking.

    Dr. Stephanie Seneff: I really do hope that people can get a better sense of whatís going on with the vaccines because I think itís really a shame how the message has beenóitís like a meme. The vaccines are safe. Vaccines are wonderful. The anti-vaxxers are such evil people that they threaten our children with the exposure because theyíre not protected, and all this stuff.

    And when you really study the vaccines the way I have, you see the story is wrong. Itís just wrong. And the vaccines are only immunizing you against every single strain, and that vaccine is going to immunize you, at best, if it succeeds, against that one bug.

    And there are many, many, many viruses out there that we donít even have a vaccine for, nor would it make sense to give yourself a thousand vaccines.

    Thereís no way you can individually immunize yourself one by one against all the viruses.

    So if we just get rid of certain ones, there are always other ones that can come in and make you sicker.

    So you havenít really solved anything. And every time you get a vaccine, youíre setting back your general immunity by a notch. So when you get more and more vaccines, you get a weaker and weaker general immune system. So all those other viruses are now a bigger threat to you than they were before.

    So you havenít fixed anything. Youíve just made things worse. And we end up with a lot of people who are very susceptible to any virus that comes along.

    And so you become almost terrified to step outside.

    You need to have a strong innate immunity. You donít really want to be producing these antibodies that are specific to specific germs. You donít want to do that. Every time you do that you have a chance to produce an autoimmune disease that could be devastating.

    And so itís just the vaccine concept is broken in my opinion.

    Wendy Myers: Yes, there is no such thing as [herd] immunity. It will never happen. It does not exist.

    Dr. Stephanie Seneff: It is funny how they say that the anti-vaxxers ,they have these wonderful kids who are so healthy. They never get sick. And then they accuse them of being the ones that have caused a breakout. And yet, theyíre not getting sick. So it doesnít make sense.

    The other kids are so sick, are so vulnerable, that they easily get sick because theyíve been pumped up with all these vaccines, and theyíve got all these issues with their immune system. Itís just a train wreck.

    Youíre forcing the immune system down a path that is not natural with the vaccine. Itís not a natural process.

    And of course, you totally mess up that child, the baby, because the mother doesnít have natural immunity, and sheís supposed be able to supply it in her breast milk, but she canít because she got those vaccines, and they wore off.

    So then the infant becomes vulnerable. And thatís when you can really get a serious problem, something like measles if youíre too young.

    But you should have natural antibodies from your mom, but you donít because sheís got the vaccine and it wore off. So you end up with a failed system for the most vulnerable people. Itís just crazy.

    Wendy Myers: Itís difficult to find good information about vaccine dangers. Just five years ago, I started researchingónot five years. Maybe right before I was pregnant. And I started researching about vaccines. Everything is pro-vaccine on the internet, on the news, in the newspaper because they are all bought by big pharma.

    Dr. Stephanie Seneff: Exactly. They think if they just keep shouting it loud enough that you will not believe anything else. They just tell you vaccines donít cause autism. Itís like a mantra.
    And they donít even provide support for why they believe that. They just say it.

    Wendy Myers: It gets into the collective conscious. And I fell victim to that and thought I had done my research, and gave my daughter about 10 vaccines, and I paid the price. I paid the price for that, and so many other people are as well. And itís not really getting into the media.

    Dr. Stephanie Seneff: Itís frustrating. Itís really frustrating that the mainstream just such a strangle hold. Thereís just such filtering of information, so that the truth canít get out. Itís just really frustrating.

    But weíre building a larger and larger alternative community, and I think eventually theyíll be so large that their voice will be heard.

    01:16:38 Where to find Dr. Stephanie Seneff

    Wendy Myers: Stephanie, thank you so much for coming on the podcast. I so appreciate it. I know the listeners are going to listen to this a few times, just trying to absorb all the information.
    Why donít you tell the listeners where they can learn more about you, and about glyphosate, et cetera?

    Dr. Stephanie Seneff: My name is pretty unusual, S-E-N-E-F-F, so if you can remember my last name, you can do a Google search and you can find all kinds of stuff. YouTube has a lot of YouTube videos, and some various podcasts. And I have a bunch of papers.
    My papers are posted on my website, and my website is at MIT.

    Probably if you Google my name, youíll see my website near the top of the list, but I can tell you the website in case you want to write it down. Itís not an easy one to remember. Itís People dot CSAIL, thatís my lab, Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, C-S-A-I-L dot mit.edu/my last name, Seneff, S-E-N-E-F-F.

    So Iíve got a bunch of stuff there, my papers and various slideshows from various presentations that Iíve given, and some few other things.

    So thereís a lot of material on my webpage. Very plain-looking, but itís got a lot of material in it.

    Wendy Myers: Thank you so much for coming on the show. I so appreciate it.

    Dr. Stephanie Seneff: Thank you. Thank you so much for having me. It was great.

    Wendy Myers: And everyone, if you want to learn more about me, go to myersdetox.com. Check out my detox program at MineralPower.com.

    Thank you so much for listening to the Live to 110 Podcast.

    How to detox glyphosate (Roundup) from your body
    Posted on February 6, 2019 by Cat

    By Cat, Feb 4, 2019; updated Feb 8, 2019

    I am strongly opposed to use of the plant-killer glyphosate, because of the harm it does to our bodies from intake of GMO foods, and from its use as a desiccant before harvesting grain crops. Also because of the harm it does to our soil and environment.

    Now I have some good news: you can detox your body from glyphosate, using several methods. This article is mainly about using a simple daily dose of glycine (an amino acid) to detox, and how to test for glyphosate levels in your body.

    Includes: 1. Glycine and glyphosate, and detox methods; 2. Testing methods for glyphosate levels you body
    Printable pdf version of this article: How to Detox Glyphosate from your Body (pdf, 020919 update)

    Glycine and glyphosate

    The main way glyphosate harms our bodies, is by substituting for glycine in our bodyís peptides and proteins (such as enzymes, collagen, etc.). (1A, 2) That is, glyphosate is an analog of the amino acid, glycine. The chemical formulas are (note the similarities as indicated in purple-bold) (3):

    glycine amino acid is: NH2‐CH2‐COOH;
    glyphosate is: H2(PO3)-CH2ĖNH-CH2-COOH

    This similarity allows glyphosate to take glycineís place in peptides and proteins, causing all kinds of havoc. Glycine is found in all parts of the body; for example, it is part of collagen and gelatin. Substitution by glyphosate can easily explain links with (2):

    ďdiabetes, obesity, asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), pulmonary edema, adrenal insufficiency, hypothyroidism, Alzheimerís disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), Parkinsonís disease, prion diseases, lupus, mitochondrial disease, non-Hodgkinís lymphoma, neural tube defects, infertility, hypertension, glaucoma, osteoporosis, fatty liver disease and kidney failure.Ē

    How to detox from glyphosate

    The good news: you can detox your body from toxic glyphosate, by increasing your dietary intake of glycine. Your body builds new peptides and proteins every day to replace aging ones, or for new uses. An easy way to ensure your body uses glycine and not glyphosate is by flooding it with glycine. Meanwhile, the aging peptides/proteins containing glyphosate are flushed from your body.

    Taking glycine supplementally can be very effective. Here are two suggestions:

    add glycine powder to a smoothie, shake, or fresh veggie juices (such as for a juice fast Ė see below);
    use it as an alternative sweetener for coffee, tea, and other beverages, because it is slightly sweet.

    Quote NOTE: it also can be purchased in capsule form and is a relatively low price
    Per Mercolaís article (1A), ďDr. Dietrich Klinghardt recommends taking 1 teaspoon (4 grams) of glycine powder twice a day for a few weeks and then lower the dose to one-fourth teaspoon (1 gram) twice a day. This forces the glyphosate out of your system, allowing it to be eliminated through your urine.Ē

    Or you can take collagen supplementally, because it is an excellent source of glycine. Just be sure the source of collagen is from grass-fed/pasture-raised meat sources (conventionally raised livestock are fed Roundup-resistant soy and grains that are heavily contaminated with Roundup, which ends up in their muscles [and collagen](meat)).

    IMPORTANT NOTE: Using glycine to detox will not work for other brands of herbicides/pesticides, unless they too contain glycine in their structure.

    Catís testing note: I have not yet tried this detox method, but I will do that soon, after getting both a hair analysis and radionics tests (see Testing, below) to determine my starting levels, and will report my results over time.

    Other detox methods and helpers:

    Easy Health Options (8) recommends first doing a pre-detox of your intestines using Miralax to create liquid stools. They also recommend sweating in a sauna, and doing a liver detox with specific herbs and supplements.

    A veggie-juice fast such as that offered by Wellness Education Center (WEC) in Kalispell helps with many different detox needs; I would recommend doing this glycine detox along with the WEC fast (add glycine powder to the juices).

    Adequate dietary folate, or a good folate supplement (not folic acid) helps with glyphosate and heavy metal detox (1B)

    Bonuses with increasing glycine intake:

    Impact on glutathione:

    One of the most important peptides containing glycine is glutathione, a major antioxidant and detox agent made by the body, and essential for the liverís detox ability. Glutathione is comprised of three amino acids: glycine, L-glutamine, and L-cysteine. When you take glycine supplementally, you help increase glutathione production, which improves your ability to detox toxic substances.

    If glyphosate has taken glycineís place in glutathione, that lessens your bodyís ability to detox, not only from glyphosate, but from many other toxins as well. By flooding your body with glycine, you have a double-impact: restoring glycine to peptides/proteins, and restoring glutathioneís ability to detox your body from the damage created by glyphosate.

    Impact on glycine/methionine balance in our bodies:

    According to Chris Masterjohn, PhD. (10), ďmaintaining proper dietary balance between [glycine and methionine] is also important because too much methionine represses glycine. The former is ďespecially abundant in eggs, dairy, meat, poultry, and fish. Glycine is especially abundant in skin and bones.Ē Unfortunately many of us avoid skin and bones in our meals; ďfor example, skinless, boneless chicken breast is rich in methionine, but the glycine-rich skin and bones have been removed.Ē

    For those who donít eat enough skin and bones (as in stock and bone-broth), increasing glycine intake can help restore the balance and benefits of both, noting that (10):

    ó Methionine helps prevent fatty liver disease and improves mental flexibility. It can help cool our anxiety or lift us from depression;

    ó Glycine helps stabilize our blood sugar, and helps to prevent us from drifting into endless distractions. It promotes healthy sleep, and it revitalizes our skin and bones.

    Glycine supplement examples

    Here are a few you can check out. Go to iherb(dot)com (link disguised), and search for the following codes:

    NOW-00225 for NOW-brand glycine powder
    CAR-06835 for Carlsonís-brand glycine powder
    NOW-00107 for NOW-brand glycine in capsules
    THR-51202 for Thorne-brand glycine in capsules
    SOL-01370 for Solgar-brand glycine in capsules

    I recommend the powder because it is easier to adjust the amount you take.

    Another form of glycine is its salt form, such as magnesium glycinate, but I am still researching its ability to detox glyphosate.

    Testing for glyphosate levels in your body

    We are all exposed to glyphosate Ė itís unavoidable because it is everywhere. Even certified Organic foods are contaminated by drift from nearby spraying. We were safe from major drift, here in NW Montana, until local farmers started growing GMO canola. However, if you or your neighbors use Roundup as a weed killer, that is another source. So you may as well assume you have enough glyphosate to be concerned.

    You can minimize your exposure to glyphosate by preparing all your meals using foods you grow/raise yourself, but in this day and age, that is difficult.

    There are several recommended tests for your body; each provides information for a specific range of exposure over time (4a,5,6):

    Hair Testing shows your exposure to pesticides over a period of 90-120 days;
    Urine Testing shows your exposure for approximately 14-21 days; and
    Blood Testing shows your exposure for 2-3 days.
    Breast Milk Testing if you are nursing (exposure time not provided) (7)
    Hair Testing has several advantages (6):

    Easy collection
    Easy transport
    Enables continuous cost effective bio-monitoring over a year: 4 samples vs 100 for blood vs 26 for urine

    You can also have your water tested, as it is one source of exposure close to home.


    Detox Project offers:
    hair testing (Glyphosate test includes glyphosate, AMPA, and glufosinate); other pesticide tests are also available (4b),
    food and water testing (4c)

    Great Plains Lab offers both urine and water testing (5)

    Energy testing methods for glyphosate toxicity:

    These methods are controversial and declared as shams by conventional medicine practitioners, but I have found them to be helpful and accurate, and will use them to evaluate my glyphosate toxicity, in addition to the more conventional hair test (above).

    Radionics, a form of energy testing available at our local Swan Valley Herbs store. It doesnít provide the level in p.p.b. (parts per billion) like the hair, urine or blood testing; rather in relative numbers. The higher the number, the heavier the load of glyphosate.

    Body Talk and/or NAET (Nambudripadís Allergy Elimination Techniques) and/or use muscle testing to determine if a substance is a problem, and if yes, how serious the problem might be. This too is not measured in p.p.b.; rather in whether your arm muscles are strong or weak to the substance or question asked. My acupuncturist (9) practices NAET.

    Default Re: The poisoning of America: Glyphosate, Statins and Vaccines

    JANUARY 31, 2020

    "The EPA's finding that glyphosate exposure does not cause any health risks is a blatant act of reckless endangerment to public health. Americans should be outraged, not just because our EPA is not protecting us, but because our government is allowing the collapse of democracy by pandering to corporate greed.


    The EPA assessed risks to humans from exposure to glyphosate from all registered uses and all routes of exposure and did not identify any risks of concern, including cancer.
    The EPA did not review any cumulative health impacts of glyphosate.
    The EPA did reduce the list of crop types with allowable levels of glyphosate residues from 160 to 15, however the crops removed likely did not utilize glyphosate, and the list is not complete.
    The EPA still has not responded to the EWG et al petition about discontinuing the use of glyphosate on oats and wheat as a desiccant or made a determination on residue levels.
    The EPA will do further assessments on the impact of glyphosate on bees and endangered species due to the Center for Biological Diversity mitigation.
    The EPA is limiting the amount of glyphosate used per acre, by category of use, in order to prevent further weed resistance.
    The EPA is requiring additional labeling for aquatic use which warns of fish kill from the lack of oxygen from dead water vegetation (note: not from glyphosate).
    A final decision will be made after a decision about the desiccation of wheat and oats, endangered species review, and an assessment of endocrine disruption. Decisions could be in 2020 for some and August 2021 for others.
    A Thorough Assessment of the EPAís Not-So-Thorough Assessment of Glyphosate
    The EPA has been reviewing glyphosate, the declared active chemical ingredient in glyphosate-based herbicides most commonly known as Roundup or Ranger Pro, for over 10 years. During the last 120-day public comment period on glyphosate, the EPA received roughly 283,300 comments. Over 12,000 unique submissions were received from various stakeholders, including glyphosate registrants, grower groups, non-governmental organizations, pesticide industry groups, states, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and members of the general public.

    Glyphosate-based herbicides are the most widely used herbicides in the world. According to the EPAís own study, between 2012 to 2016 approximately 281 million pounds of glyphosate was applied to 298 million acres annually in agricultural settings, on average. Most glyphosate was applied to genetically modified soybeans (117.4 million lbs applied annually), corn (94.9 million lbs applied annually), and cotton (20 million lbs applied annually). Many citrus fruits (e.g., grapefruit, oranges, lemons), field crops (e.g., soybean, corn, cotton), and tree nuts (e.g., almonds, walnuts, pistachios) have the highest percentage of their acres treated with glyphosate. Approximately 24 million pounds of glyphosate are applied to non-agricultural sites annually, on average. The majority of non-agricultural use is in the homeowner market (5 million lbs applied annually), turf (4.9 million lbs applied annually), forestry (3.6 million lbs applied annually), and roadways (3.3 million lbs applied annually).

    Despite massive public outcry, letters to the EPA, thousands of calls, protests, petitions, and campaigns regarding the myriad of ways glyphosate has been shown to impact human health the EPA released a statement on January 30, 2020:

    The EPA thoroughly assessed risks to humans from exposure to glyphosate from all registered uses and all routes of exposure and did not identify any risks of concern.

    The agency concluded that there are no dietary risks of concern for any segment of the population, even with the most conservative assumptions applied in its assessments (e.g., tolerance-level residues, direct application to water, and 100% crop treated). The agency also concluded that there are no residential, non-occupational bystander, aggregate, or occupational risks of concern.

    Not only did they not find any human health risks of concern in the industry-funded studies they chose to review (ignoring the 67 studies that the International Agency for Research on Cancer reviewed, 82% of which found glyphosate to be genotoxic), they did not even look:

    The EPA has not made a common mechanism of toxicity to humans finding as to glyphosate and any other substance and it does not appear to produce a toxic metabolite produced by other substances. Therefore, it was not appropriate for EPA to assess cumulative risks.

    How can the EPA justify this?
    They cannot justify cherry picking studies. There is simply no explanation for that..except for pandering to corporate pressure.

    It is true, glyphosate is not immediately (acutely) toxic by EPA standards. 51% or more of animals will not die within 96 hours after exposure. But the EPA recklessly neglects to consider long-term, cumulative harm. This presumption is unrealistic because humans are exposed daily, on a long-term basis, to glyphosate in our food and communities.

    The additional failure with the EPAís assessment and their policies is that glyphosate is never used alone. It is used with many co-formulants, such as arsenic and heavy metals, that are up to 1000X more toxic than glyphosate alone. So reviewing glyphosate alone, and approving it alone, is allowing an unfounded approval of glyphosate-based herbicides. The entire policy of approving thousands of chemical products a year based on assessing one common ingredient in the products is faulty, misleading, irresponsible and harmful. This decision is akin to allowing sodium cyanide (poison) for use in our food supply with studies that only reviewed sodium (table salt).

    The EPA repeatedly states in its findings:

    EPA has thoroughly evaluated potential human health risk associated with exposure to glyphosate and determined that there are no risks to human health from the current registered uses of glyphosate and that glyphosate is not likely to be carcinogenic to humans. The EPA also wiggled its way out of reviewing independent science by explaining:

    The epidemiological literature was also reviewed but most studies were hypothesis-generating in nature. The EPA found there was insufficient evidence to conclude that glyphosate plays a role in any human diseases. Since the last EPA review of the epidemiological literature, two studies regarding the association between glyphosate exposure and non-Hodgkinís Lymphoma (NHL) were identified for detailed review by the agency; however, these studies did not impact the agencyís assessment. For more information, refer to Glyphosate: Response to Comments on the Proposed Interim Decision Regarding the Human Health Risk Assessment, which is available on the public docket.

    Notice how the sentence in red above completely contradicts the sentence before it in blue. The studies they ignore show a 41-50% increased risk of NHL (and Multiple Myeloma) with glyphosate exposure- they are not studies that should be ignored.

    I suppose the EPA felt a concession was made when it removed many food types from the list of glyphosate allowable residue levels ďsince they will no longer be needed.Ē However, it is unlikely that glyphosate was being used on these mostly tropical crops. Nor are they the most commonly eaten crops, like soy, corn, sugar, peas, beans, wheat, and oats.

    The EPA intends to establish new tolerances for various vegetable and fruit groups and subgroups, as listed in Table 1. Upon establishment of these new crop group tolerances, EPA intends to remove the following individual tolerances, since they will no longer be needed: acerola; aloe vera; ambarella; asparagus; atemoya; avocado; bamboo, shoots; banana; biriba; breadfruit; cactus, fruit; cactus, pads; canistel; cherimoya; custard apple; date, dried fruit; 10 Docket Number EPA-HQ-OPP-2009-0361 www.regulations.gov durian; feijoa; fig; fruit, stone, group 12; guava; ilama; imbe; imbu; jaboticaba; jackfruit; longan; lychee; mamey apple; mango; mangosteen; marmaladebox; noni; nut, tree, group 14; olive; palm heart; papaya; papaya, mountain; passionfruit; pawpaw; persimmon; pineapple; pistachio; pomegranate; pulasan; rambutan; rose apple; sapodilla; sapote, black; sapote, mamey; sapote, white; soursop; Spanish lime; star apple; starfruit; sugar apple; Surinam cherry; tamarind; vegetable, leafy, brassica, group 5; vegetable, leafy, except brassica, group 4; watercress, upland; and wax jambu.

    Now the current EPA glyphosate residue level list has been modified from 160 items to the following:

    Wheat and oats are mysteriously missing from the list, but not because they are not allowed to have glyphosate residue. Rather, the EPA is still assessing the use of glyphosate as a pre-harvest drying tool. The EWG and several food companies petitioned the EPA to stop the spraying of glyphosate on oats and wheat, as high levels of glyphosate were found in baby and toddler foods like oatmeal and cereals. The EWG et al asserted that children are especially vulnerable to glyphosate and therefore precautions must be taken to protect them. The EPA is still assessing this petition and plans to respond later in 2020. If the EPA did disallow the spraying of glyphosate as a drying agent on all foods, according to Dr. Zach Bush M.D., they could eliminate 50-90% of the exposure to humans to glyphosate through food, and follow the lead of 34 other countries.

    The EPA has tragically closed the book on continuing to research the potential impact to human health from glyphosate.

    No additional human health data needs have been identified for the glyphosate registration review beyond the human health data required as part of the registration review DCI, which has been satisfied.

    IMPACT OF GLYPHOSATE ON BEESEPA does believe, however, that additional information is needed on the impact on bees from glyphosate.

    Therefore, the agency is currently determining whether additional bee toxicity and exposure data are needed for glyphosate.

    The EPA also recognizes a need to assess the impact of glyphosate on endangered species.

    Once the scientific methods necessary to complete risk assessments for listed species and their designated critical habitats are finalized, the agency will complete its endangered species assessment for glyphosate. The draft biological evaluation for glyphosate is anticipated in 2020.

    IMPACT OF GLYPHOSATE ON SOILThe EPA also sees plenty of benefits for glyphosate. Just one of their points:

    Since glyphosate controls a broad spectrum of weeds and does not have residual soil activity, it can be used to control emerged weeds prior to planting high value crops such as fruits and vegetables, for which growers sometimes have limited weed control options.

    The claim that glyphosate does not have residual soil activity is untrue. Glyphosate has been proven to destroy the microbes in the soil, kill the worms in the soil, and chelate minerals in the soil...essentially, all that creates healthy soil. When glyphosate depletes the soil of organic matter, the soil is less nutrient dense, leading to plants that are less nutrient dense. Such plants are more inclined to be sickly, which attracts pests like grasshoppers. The nutrient-depleted soil is also less able to absorb water, leading to increased crop damage in drought seasons, and increased run off of agro chemicals into waterways. Glyphosate does more than impact the soil, it impacts the crops, water, air, and every living thing it comes in contact with.


    Some living things are outsmarting glyphosate however, for instance hundreds of plants that are considered weeds have cleverly developed a resistance to glyphosate.

    The EPA states:

    Currently there are over 250 weed species worldwide with confirmed herbicide resistance. In the United States, there are over 155 weed species with confirmed resistance to one or more herbicides.

    To reduce weed resistance in the future, the EPA defined some restrictions on the amount of glyphosate to be used per acre for all of the different uses. For example, up to 8 pounds per acre may be used per year on forestry land. Farming consultant Frank Dean states ďThese amounts are still far too much and will impact the quality of the soil and crops.Ē

    The USA has 421,302 acres of forestry land, so there is a potential market for Bayer of the sale of over 3.3 million pounds of glyphosate just for the lumber industry. Thanks EPA! Never mind climate change, sell that glyphosate!


    The EPA touts the glories of glyphosate...including use on (millions of acres) conservation land:
    Glyphosate is also important for habitat restoration efforts. It is used to control invasive annual, perennial, and woody plants in riparian habitats and rangeland. Glyphosate use in rights-of-way helps keep roadways and railroad tracks safe by protecting the stability of the surface, maintaining visibility for operators, and allowing for the distribution of goods, services, and utilities (gas and electric). Glyphosate is the most frequently used active ingredient used to control invasive species in the United States.

    This means that conservationists have been duped into believing that glyphosate is harmless to our precious nature preserves, parks and wilderness, and they use it to prevent ďinvasive species.Ē What they do not realize is that by using glyphosate, they are changing the mineral makeup of the soil. When the soil is depleted of certain minerals, specific plants are more likely to grow...many of them are considered ďinvasive weeds.Ē In addition, the birds, pollinators, and butterflies that they work so hard to protect are being impacted by glyphosate. We are losing wildlife species every day...possibly forever.

    AQUATIC USEThe EPA also indirectly addresses glyphosateís impact on fish. They blame the dying weeds on the depleted oxygen in the water which, in turn, kills the fish.

    Their new labeling (which is law) for environmental use of aquatic glyphosate herbicides (yes, they can spray it directly IN the water) will read as such:

    ďKilling aquatic weeds can result in depletion or loss of oxygen in the water due to hazards: for decomposition of dead plant material. This oxygen loss can cause fish suffocation. Consult with labels with your State agency with primary responsibility for regulating pesticides before applying to public both aquatic waters to determine if a permit is required. For terrestrial uses, do not apply directly to water, and terrestrial areas where surface water is present or to intertidal areas below the mean high-water mark uses [Optional text, if applicable: except when applying this product by air over the forest canopy]. Do not contaminate water when cleaning equipment or disposing of equipment wash waters and rinsate.Ē

    Dr. Don Huber, a 50 year plant pathologist and Professor Emeritus of Perdue University responds to the glyphosate aquatic labeling with frustration, "A bunch of contradictory words and highly hypocritical! It is toxic regardless of how it is applied!"

    The EPAís clarification, ďFor fields being rotated to a non labeled crop, any glyphosate application must be made a minimum of 30 days prior to planting,Ē means that a farmer can spray glyphosate on a field and 30 days later plant non organic carrots, sweet potatoes, strawberries or peppers, even if these crops are not genetically engineered to withstand glyphosate (non labeled). Regardless of a 1-4 week lag, these crops can still uptake glyphosate into the plant, can weaken the plant, and be ingested by animals and humans. Farming consultants have stated when phosphorus fertilizers are applied to the soil, the interaction with glyphosate has the glyphosate de-absorb from the soil molecules and is made free to be taken up by the plant. So a 1-4 week time makes no difference when it comes to absorption into the crop.

    The EPA defined rules on the height of aerial applications for glyphosate (up to 10 feet from the ground in some cases), temperature, and wind speed. They also defined the size of the droplets of spray in order to reduce drift. As if any of these measures will actually prevent harm from glyphosate to an unpredictable bird or bee flying through the air at the time of spraying.The EPA also indirectly addresses glyphosateís impact on fish.

    "If we do not ban whole classes of chemicals in the next 10 years, we will face a crash in the number of new births," GMO co-founder Jeremy Grantham said in a letter.
    Grantham gained influence as an investor after correctly calling the dotcom bubble in 2000 and the market's dramatic downturn in 2008.
    Grantham ended his letter by warning that major chemical companies could soon be hit by widespread bans on some of their key products.

    High-profile investor Jeremy Grantham warned in a letter that falling birth rates in the developed world could accelerate in coming years due to increasing chemical toxicity, allowing only wealthy people to have children.

    In recent years, economists have raised concern about the impact on economic growth of slowing birth rates in the developed world. Grantham, who co-founded GMO in the 1970s and is famous for calling the last two major market bubbles, said that trend is poised to accelerate due to increased chemical toxicity in the environment and food products.

    "This interference is growing at such a rapid rate that if left alone it is likely to leave us sterile in a few decades with only the rich able to easily afford the healthy lifestyles and the exotic medical help required to have babies," Grantham said.

    While acknowledging that changes in lifestyle choices is responsible for at least some of the slowing birth rates, Graham said increased chemical toxicity is making it harder for women to conceive and lowering sperm counts in men.

    "The net effect of choice and postponement combined with the recent decade of 'help' from toxicity has been an unexpected and accelerating decline in delivered fertility in developed countries, as well as the critically important China and India, with new annual cohorts of babies already declining in absolute numbers, not just growth rates," Grantham said.

    He also pointed to dramatic population declines in some species of insects as an example of how increased chemicals in the environment can hurt reproduction rates.

    He ended his letter by warning that major chemical companies could soon be hit by widespread bans on some of their key products.

    "The bottom line is this: either endocrine disrupting chemicals will go out of business or we will!" Grantham wrote.

    Grantham gained influence as an investor after correctly calling the dotcom bubble in 2000 and the market's dramatic downturn in 2008. GMO has struggled in recent years, however. It reported $62.1 billion in assets under management at the end of 2018, down from about $124 billion in June 2014.

    Grantham has long expressed public concern about environmental issues, including launching the Grantham Foundation for the Protection of the Environment in 1997. His firm also runs the GMO Climate Change fund.

    In farmer vs. Bayer, farmer prevails
    Pesticide Action Network

    "A jury ruled over the weekend that the agrichemical corporations Bayer and BASF should pay $250 million in punitive damages and $15 million in compensatory damages to farmer Bill Bader.

    Bader is a peach farmer in Campbell, Missouri, and took the corporations to court after over 30,000 of his trees were damaged due to drifting of the herbicide dicamba, a product developed by Bayer (which purchased Monsanto in 2018) and BASF.

    The tip of the iceberg
    This victory is one to celebrate, but this case doesnít exist in isolation. There is a long queue of farmers impacted by dicamba drift who are waiting for their day in court.

    Monsanto (now Bayer) developed dicamba-resistant seeds called Xtend to be planted in conjunction with the use of the dicamba formulation Xtendimax. From its inception, the Xtend crop system has caused problems for all kinds of farmers. From soybeans and cotton without the dicamba-resistant trait, to specialty crops like peaches and broccoli, drifting dicamba has created a far-reaching crisis. Ins 2019, cases of dicamba drift were up in Indiana, Arkansas, Iowa and Illinois.

    What they knew
    Dicamba simply doesnít stay put, no matter how itís applied. Farmers have known this for years ó and it appears Bayer and BASF knew it as well.

    In Baderís trial, internal documents came to light that showed that Bayer and BASF anticipated issues of off-target movement before releasing new formulations of dicamba, and projected ďdefensive plantingĒ sales to farmers. They knew dicamba would drift, and their nefarious solution was to sell resistant seeds to farmers as a way to protect crops from that inevitable drift.

    PANís Organizing Director Linda Wells said,

    The internal documents uncovered in this case show that the company released a highly destructive and intentionally untested product onto the market, and used its influence to cheat the regulatory system. While farmers who donít use the Xtend system are hit with crop damage and yield loss from dicamba drift, Bayer and BASF are reaping the financial gains of an increase in acreage planted to dicamba-resistant soybeans, and an increase in use of dicamba formulations.

    Whatís next?
    Baderís lawyers successfully argued this exact point ó that dicambaís rise to prominence did not just coincide with rising damage reports, but actually was helped by them, as farmers felt pressure to adopt the new Xtend crop system to avoid harm.

    Lawyers recommended that the jury award punitive damages of $200 million, equal to 2.5% of Bayerís net worth to deter the corporation from continued behavior that hurts farmers while they collect profits. This comes on the heels of juries awarding over $2.3 billion in damages to plaintiffs in several lawsuits over another harmful Bayer product ó glyphosate.

    Bayer and BASFís response to the juryís order in Baderís case? The initial $15 million in compensatory damages awarded the previous day were ďalready resonatingĒ with the company, and that they had ďno intent to harm anybodyĒ with their actions. Please.

    Bader Farmsí victory in this case signals a turning tide, and opens opportunities for more farmers to hold Bayer and BASF legally accountable for the dicamba drift crisis more broadly."

    How Aluminum Damages Your Brain
    Dr. Joseph Mercola
    February 19, 202

    Research has found a strong link between aluminum exposure and Alzheimerís disease. Patients with a genetic mutation that predisposes them to early onset of Alzheimerís and more aggressive disease have universally high aluminum content in their brains
    According to a British researcher, without aluminum in the brain, Alzheimerís does not develop
    When aluminum was first approved for use in vaccines, it was approved based on its efficacy. It was never actually tested for safety. It was simply assumed to be safe
    Aluminum has been shown to cause mitochondrial dysfunction and depletion of adenine-triphosphate (ATP), which sets the stage for virtually any chronic disease. Aluminum salts can increase levels of glial activation, inflammatory cytokines and amyloid precursor protein within the brain
    Recent research found the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Preventionís vaccine schedule ó when adjusted for bodyweight ó exposes children to a level of aluminum that is 15.9 times higher than the recommended ďsafeĒ level
    For years, I've warned that aluminum is a serious neurotoxic hazard involved in rising rates of autism and Alzheimer's disease (AD). I've also warned that vaccines are a significant source of such exposure, and may be one of the worst, since by injecting it, the aluminum bypasses your body's natural filtering and detoxification systems.

    My comments above were one of the reasons the self-appointed global arbiter of fake news, NewsGuard, refused to give us "green" status as a site that follows "basic standards of accuracy and accountability." In other words, our reporting of aluminum hazards was deemed "fake news."

    Not only were my earlier reports based on published science, but now we have yet another study,1 published in the Journal of Alzheimer's Disease, strongly linking aluminum exposure to AD. As reported by SciTech Daily:2

    "Researchers found significant amounts of aluminum content in brain tissue from donors with familial AD. The study also found a high degree of co-location with the amyloid-beta protein, which leads to early onset of the disease.

    'This is the second study confirming significantly high brain accumulation in familial Alzheimer's disease, but it is the first to demonstrate an unequivocal association between the location of aluminum and amyloid-beta in the disease.

    It shows that aluminum and amyloid-beta are intimately woven in the neuropathology,' explained lead investigator Christopher Exley, PhD, Birchall Centre, Lennard-Jones Laboratories, Keele University, Staffordshire, UK."

    The Association Between Aluminum and Amyloid-Beta
    To gain a better understanding of the link between aluminum exposure and beta-amyloid generation, the researchers examined the brain tissue of donors diagnosed with familial Alzheimer's disease who also had a specific gene mutation known to increase levels of amyloid-beta, leading to early onset and more aggressive disease.

    Aluminum levels were compared to controls with no neurological disease diagnosis. They found striking differences between these two groups. Donors with the genetic mutation had universally high aluminum content.

    While all samples had some level of aluminum, 42% of the samples from those with familial Alzheimer's had "pathologically significant" aluminum levels, and the aluminum was primarily co-located with amyloid beta plaques. As reported by SciTech Daily:3

    "The results strongly suggest that genetic predispositions known to increase amyloid-beta in brain tissue also predispose individuals to accumulate and retain aluminum in brain tissue Ö

    'One could envisage increased amyloid-beta in brain tissue as a response to high levels of aluminum content, or that aluminum fosters the accumulation of amyloid-beta,' said Dr. Exley.

    'Either way, the new research confirms my resolve that within the normal lifespan of humans, there would not be any AD if there were no aluminum in the brain tissue. No aluminum, no AD.'"

    Aluminum Adjuvants Have Never Been Tested for Safety
    Exley's conclusion deserves repeating: "No aluminum, no AD." Without aluminum, Alzheimer's doesn't develop. That's not fake news. This research provides conclusive evidence for concern, which means it would be foolish in the extreme to pretend that injecting infants and young children with aluminum-containing vaccines is harmless.

    As revealed in my 2015 interview with Dr. Lucija Tomljenovic, featured in "How Vaccine Adjuvants Affect Your Brain," when aluminum was first approved for use in vaccines, some 95 years ago, it was approved based on its efficacy. It was never actually tested for safety.

    Transcript: https://mercola.fileburst.com/PDF/Ex...nYourBrain.pdf

    Even the total allowable limit was based on efficacy data, not safety data. They simply assumed it was safe. As noted by Tomljenovic in that interview:

    "A document4 from 2002 from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) ... discussing the assessment of vaccine ingredients ... and testing specifically in animal models ... stated that the routine toxicity studies in animals with vaccine ingredients have not been conducted because it was assumed that these ingredients are safe.

    When I read that I was kind of pulling my hairs out [thinking] 'So, this is your indisputable evidence of safety?' These documents never made it to mainstream media. It's just a lie perpetuated over and over again; that we've been using these things for over nine decades and it's been proven safe. No, it's been ASSUMED safe."

    Industry Propaganda and Political Interference
    The propaganda responsible for hiding the dangers of aluminum was addressed in a 2014 review article5 in the journal Frontiers of Neurology. In it, Exley (who also co-authored the featured Journal of Alzheimer's Disease study above) wrote:6

    "The aluminum industry is a pillar of the developed and developing world and irrespective of the tyranny of human exposure to aluminum it cannot be challenged without significant consequences for businesses, economies, and governments ...

    There has been and there continues to be systematic attempts by the aluminum industry to suppress research on aluminum and human health.

    While independent research in this field is prevented the questions concerning human toxicity remain unanswered. Lack of required research does not equate to lack of biological effect or safety Ö

    Herein, I will make the case that it is inevitable both today and in the future that an individual's exposure to aluminum is impacting upon their health and is already contributing to, if not causing, chronic diseases such as Alzheimer's disease."

    Exley points out that one of the most significant factors driving complacency about aluminum exposure is the aluminum industry's insistence that, since it's everywhere and found in virtually everybody,7 it must be harmless if not essential ó we just haven't figured out how it benefits us yet. However, no beneficial role of aluminum has ever been elucidated, and its presence is in no way evidence of benefit.

    Why Aluminum Toxicity Flies Under the Radar
    Exley also notes that aluminum is rarely acutely toxic, which adds to the complacency problem. Problems only arise once a certain threshold is reached, and even then, its role in disease is rarely if ever investigated.

    Yet another factor that helps hide the influence of aluminum in disease is the fact that it acts on many different pathways and acts as a substitute for essential minerals, so aluminum toxicity doesn't have one specific hallmark.

    "The potential for aluminum to interact with and to influence so many biochemical pathways means that the symptoms of its toxicity could be deficiency or sufficiency, agonistic or protagonistic, and any combination of these and other physiology-based events," Exley writes, adding:8

    "For aluminum to play a significant role in any disease-related event some degree of toxicity threshold must have been achieved. Essentially, the rate of delivery of Al3+(aq) to target ligands must be sufficient to overcome the inherent robustness of systems that are under attack.

    In achieving this threshold either aluminum must accumulate over time within a particular compartment or possibly the administration of a single dose of aluminum could achieve such a threshold instantaneously.

    The latter is probably more unusual in human being's everyday exposure to aluminum except, for example, where aluminum is administered as an adjuvant in vaccination and allergy immunotherapy."

    Importantly, aluminum has the ability to cross the blood-brain-barrier, so any aluminum in the blood can be transported into the brain. "Indeed, aluminum is known to increase the leakiness of epithelial and endothelial barriers and in doing so could concomitantly increase the passage of aluminum from the blood to the brain," Exley writes.9

    Biological Effects of Aluminum
    Exley also points out aluminum can damage your brain function by:

    Adversely influencing neuronal function and survival
    Potentiating damaging redox activity
    Disrupting intracellular calcium signaling that systematically wears down cellular defenses
    Worsening the adverse effects of other heavy metals
    Influencing gene expression
    A 2010 paper10 also pointed out that aluminum salts "can increase levels of glial activation, inflammatory cytokines and amyloid precursor protein within the brain," and that "Both normal brain aging and to a greater extent, Alzheimer's disease are associated with elevated basal levels of markers for inflammation."

    Similarly, a 2018 paper11 in the Journal of Research in Medical Sciences cites research showing aluminum affects:

    Axonal transport

    Neurotransmitter synthesis

    Synaptic transmission

    Phosphorylation or de-phosphorylation of proteins

    Protein degradation

    Gene expression


    Inflammatory responses

    When it comes to altering gene expression, aluminum has been shown to do this via many different routes and mechanisms, including by:12

    Binding to histone-DNA complex

    Inducing conformational changes of chromatin

    Inducing topological changes of DNA

    Decreasing expression of neurofilament

    Decreasing expression of tubulin

    Altering expression of neurofilament genes

    Altering expression of amyloid precursor protein

    Altering expression of neuron-specific enolase

    Decreasing expression of transferrin receptor

    Altering expression of RNA polymerase I

    Altering expression of oxidative stress marker genes such as SOD1 and glutathione reductase

    Altering expression of beta-APP secretase

    Importantly, as noted in the Journal of Research in Medical Sciences, aluminum has been shown to "cause mitochondrial dysfunction and depletion of adenine-triphosphate (ATP),"13 which sets the stage for virtually any chronic disease, not just neurodegenerative diseases.

    Vaccine Schedule Overexposes Infants to Aluminum

    In December 2019, The Highwire reported14 the findings of a study15 published in the Journal of Trace Elements in Medicine and Biology, which found the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's childhood vaccine schedule ó when adjusted for bodyweight ó exposes children to a level of aluminum that is 15.9 times higher than the recommended "safe" level.

    The researchers point out that previous efforts to assess the aluminum burden created by vaccines were based on "whole-body clearance rates estimated from a study involving a single human subject."

    What's more, they used an aluminum citrate solution that is not used in vaccines, which may affect the excretion rate. Importantly, infants also have immature renal function, which will inhibit their ability to filter and excrete toxins in the first place.

    Other studies16 have used orally ingested aluminum to assess and defend safety limits for aluminum in vaccines. This is clearly an unwise comparison, as only 0.1% of orally ingested aluminum is absorbed and made bioavailable from the gastrointestinal tract.17,18

    In the Journal of Trace Elements in Medicine and Biology study,19 the researchers used several different models in an effort to estimate the expected acute and long-term whole-body accumulation of aluminum in children following one of the three possible vaccine schedules:

    The CDC's childhood vaccine schedule as of 2019
    The CDC's vaccine schedule modified to use low dose aluminum DTaP and aluminum-free Hib vaccines
    Dr. Paul Thomas' "vaccine-friendly plan,"20,21 which recommends giving only one aluminum-containing vaccine per visit (max two) and delaying certain vaccinations
    The CDC's standard schedule resulted in the greatest expected aluminum burden in all model assumptions, while Thomas' schedule resulted in the lowest. According to the authors:22

    "Medically, proper organ, cellular and body aluminum detoxification appears to be of ever-increasing importance: Aluminum has been found in the brains of patients with Parkinson's Disease, Alzheimer's disease, epilepsy, and autism.

    Evidence is growing that a host of chronic illnesses of unknown cause that are difficult to diagnose such as PANDAS/PANS, chronic fatigue syndrome may at least in part be due to vaccine aluminum intolerance.

    Aluminum compounds occur naturally in the environment and in food, but very little ingested aluminum is absorbed through the intestines. Total aluminum exposure is affected by the aluminum amount in individual vaccines and the timing of repeated vaccinations in the first two years of life.

    Důrea and Marques compared the expected levels of aluminum uptake into the body from intravenous and oral intake and concluded that human infants have higher exposure to aluminum from vaccination than from food, water, and formula.

    Our calculations confirm that for the CDC schedule, infants up to six months of life receive most of their metabolically available aluminum from vaccines.

    It should be expected that most aluminum retained in the body of infants comes from vaccinations combined with the levels of exposure from other exposures to manifest health risks from total exposure, making the timing and total aluminum content of different vaccine schedules an important consideration."

    CDC Vaccine Schedule Exceeds Aluminum Limit for Adults
    As noted in the Journal of Trace Elements in Medicine and Biology study,23 the "safety" limit for aluminum is not weight dependent. The maximum safe limit is based on an adult, and the same limit is transposed to infants weighing a fraction of that.

    Importantly, this study found that when multiple aluminum-containing vaccines are given together, as per the CDC schedule, the total aluminum dose ends up exceeding even the assumed safety limit for an adult.

    "Adjusting the safe dose limit based on a child's weight at these ages therefore results in doses that far exceed the estimated safe limit of acute toxicity," the authors warn,24 adding that "on all days of injection the safe limit for a child is exceeded for all three schedules; this points to acute toxicity Ö

    The CDC schedule has the largest violation at 15.9 times the recommended safe level. This occurs at 2 months, when four recommended vaccinations containing aluminum are simultaneously administered.

    In addition, modeling the time to clear aluminum from the body using Priest's equation estimates that for this schedule a child will be over the safe level of aluminum in the body for 149 days from birth to 7 months, constituting about 70 % of days in this period. This points to chronic toxicity Ö

    The modified CDC schedule assumes the same vaccinations at the same times as the CDC schedule, but like the Vaccine Friendly Plan it assumes a lower dose aluminum DTap vaccine, and also combines the ActHib (containing no Al) with low aluminum DTap or PVC13 so that the aluminum adjuvant in the aluminum containing vaccine (ACV) activates an immune response for the ActHib vaccine.

    This drops the maximum level of exposure to about 60 % of the original CDC plan with (from 15.9 to 9.3) and drops days above the estimated safe limit in the first 7 months from 70 % of days to 26 % and in the first 2 years from 24 % of days to 8 %.

    The Vaccine Friendly Plan schedule skips some vaccinations in the first two years (like HepB) and avoids giving more than two vaccinations containing aluminum together.

    The VFP thus further limits maximum exposure to approximately 25 % of the original CDC schedule (from 15.9 to 4.2) and drops days above the estimate limit in the first seven months from 70 % of days to 5 % and in the first two years from 24 % of days to 2 %."

    Aluminum Is a Proven Neurotoxin
    The health hazards of aluminum are also addressed in a 2017 scientific review25 published in the German journal, Deutsches ńrzteblatt International, which also reviews the threshold values associated with various types of exposure.

    "Aluminum's neurotoxic effects in humans and its embryotoxic effects in animal models have been proven," the paper states, adding that while the acute toxicity of ingested aluminum is low, long-term exposure and buildup is associated with neurotoxic effects, resulting in disorientation, memory impairment and dementia. As noted in this paper:26

    "In addition to inducing oxidative stress and binding to negatively charged membrane structures in neurons, aluminum is able to modify hippocampal calcium signal pathways that are crucial to neuronal plasticity and, hence, to memory. Cholinergic neurons are particularly susceptible to aluminum neurotoxicity, which affect synthesis of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine."

    Aluminum as a risk factor for neurological disorders is also detailed in a 2018 paper27 in the Journal of Research in Medical Sciences. Here, the authors again note that "it is widely accepted that [aluminum] is a recognized neurotoxin, which could cause neurodegeneration." They also point out that aluminum "affects more than 200 important biological reactions and causes negative effects on [the] central nervous system."

    Aluminum Detected in Organs a Year After Vaccination
    A 2013 study28 shed important light on the vaccine adjuvant alum, a "nanocrystalline compound" that has been shown to spontaneously form "micron/submicron-sized agglomerates." According to this paper:

    "Alum is occasionally detected within monocyte-lineage cells long after immunization in presumably susceptible individuals with systemic/neurologic manifestations or autoimmune (inflammatory) syndrome induced by adjuvants (ASIA) Ö

    Intramuscular injection of alum-containing vaccine was associated with the appearance of aluminum deposits in distant organs, such as spleen and brain where they were still detected one year after injection Ö

    Particles linearly accumulated in the brain up to the six-month endpoint; they were first found in perivascular CD11b+ cells and then in microglia and other neural cells Ö Cerebral translocation was not observed after direct intravenous injection, but significantly increased in mice with chronically altered blood-brain-barrier Ö

    Continuously escalating doses of this poorly biodegradable adjuvant in the population may become insidiously unsafe, especially in the case of overimmunization or immature/altered blood brain barrier or high constitutive CCL-2 production."

    Clearly, Alzheimer's and autism are not caused by a single factor. Your diet and lifestyle play significant roles, as do other toxic exposures. Still, aluminum appears to be a significant concern that cannot be overlooked, especially where vaccines are concerned. Can we really justify loading infants up with aluminum at doses that are toxic even to an adult?

    Dr. Oz Warns About Mercury in Flu Shots
    February 22, 2020

    "Health Impact News Editor Comments

    Dr. Oz spent considerable time covering the issue of thimerosal being used as a preservative in the annual flu vaccine. Thimerosal contains mercury, a well-known neuro-toxin. Dr. Oz interviewed Dr. Mark Hyman and Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. on his show to discuss mercury in vaccines.

    While it is certainly worthwhile to warn the public of the dangers of mercury in the flu vaccine, Marcella Piper-Terry of VaxTruth.org points out several facts regarding this issue that were not covered during the show, and how Dr. Oz did not exactly get his facts straight on a few things.

    Sadly, this is representative of the current level of knowledge concerning vaccines both among the mainstream media and modern-day physicians. Parents of vaccine-damaged children do their homework and research well, and in many cases are more educated on this issue than both the mass media and many doctors.

    It should be noted that Dr. Oz is not anti-vaccine, and he apparently required both of his guests to state that they too believe in vaccines in order to be on the show. Dr. Oz would want everyone to get the flu shot from batches where mercury is not added.

    We disagree. The flu shot is the most dangerous vaccine in the U.S. even without the added mercury, and the U.S. government pays out millions of dollars in injuries and deaths due to the flu shot every year. There is also very little evidence that the flu shot is beneficial in preventing the flu, and plenty of evidence that it can make it worse.

    Dr. Oz Show: Thimerosal in Flu Shots Ė What He Got Wrong & What You NEED to Know!
    by Marcella Piper-Terry

    On September 11, 2014, Dr. Ozís guests included Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. and Dr. Mark Hyman and the topic of discussion was thimerosal in flu vaccines. It is great to see Dr. Oz expressing concerns about thimerosal, which is 49.5% mercury and is a potent neuro-immune toxin.

    Dr. Oz advised his audience that pregnant women and parents of children should request thimerosal-free flu shots so they can avoid injecting mercury into their bodies.

    You can view the video clips here
    (Part 1: https://www.doctoroz.com/episode/oz-...=3779837430001)
    and here
    (Part 2: https://www.doctoroz.com/episode/oz-...=3779864434001).

    In short, all three men agreed thimerosal in vaccines is a very bad idea. All three agreed it should be removed completely, not only from vaccines, but from ALL medical products. Period.

    While I appreciate the effort, there were several inaccuracies in the show, which need to be cleared up.

    1. Contrary to the assertions of Oz, Hyman, and Kennedy, thimerosal has not been removed from childhood vaccinations; itís still there. The FDA changed the rules so vaccine manufacturers do not have to include thimerosal on the label as an ingredient unless it is used as a preservative. According to the FDA, if thimerosal is used in the manufacturing process but it is not used as a preservative, the vaccine can be labeled ďthimerosal-freeĒ when that is not the case. You can read more about this semantic trickery and what it really means for your child here. The point is, several vaccines given to infants and children still contain thimerosal, including the DTaP vaccine, DT vaccine, Hib (ACTHib, TriHIBit) and Meningococcal vaccine. Click this link and scroll down in the vaccine excipients list until you get to thimerosal. (On your way to ďthimerosal,Ē you might want to also notice all the other toxic ingredients and the vaccines that contain them.)

    2. In addition to the problems with the FDA rule change, which allows vaccine-manufacturers to lie about the fact that their vaccines still contain thimerosal, Dr. Oz and his guests missed the fact that the meningococcal vaccine given to children age two years and older contains the same amount of thimerosal (50 mcg.) as the multi-dose flu shots they are so concerned about. Click this link and go to section 11, on page 17 of the Menomune manufacturerís insert.

    3. Another GLARING inaccuracy from Thursdayís Dr. Oz show was the graphic shown on the screen (See Part 1, at 2:30) stating that in 1999 thimerosal was taken out of the measles, mumps, and rubella vaccine. This was a face-palm moment. Really? Dr. OZ!!! You are the most trusted television doctor in the United States and people listen to you! Itís important for you to get your facts straight. This is VACCINE INFO 101: The MMR Vaccine (measles, mumps, rubella) does not now and NEVER HAS CONTAINED THIMEROSAL!!! The MMR is a live virus vaccine and thimerosal would kill the viruses. Got it? What MMR and other live virus vaccines like the chickenpox vaccine and the shingles vaccine DO CONTAIN is the DNA from aborted human fetal tissue. Independent laboratories (conducting research that is not funded by the makers of the vaccines) have found that these vaccines are associated with autism genes in the brain; particularly with those affecting the synapse (which is responsible for processing of information). Research indicates the ďrecombinant homologous DNAĒ from aborted fetuses (their cells are used to grow the live viruses) basically ďrecombinesĒ with the DNA of the recipient child and this results in an autoimmune attack on specific brain proteins. This should be another face-palm moment. When you think about autoimmunity, what is it? In laymanís terms, ďAutoimmunity is when the body gets confused about self and other, and it starts to attack its own tissues.Ē What better way to induce autoimmunity than to inject the DNA of another human being into your body?

    4. As noted above, Dr. Ozís only concern about the flu vaccine appears to be that it contains thimerosal. He went on to advise pregnant women to ask for thimerosal-free vaccines. What he didnít tell his audience is that The CDCís advisory committee on immunization practices, or the ACIPís recommendation for ANY flu vaccine in pregnancy was not supported by their own research. The research on administration of flu vaccine (with or without thimerosal) indicates that NO Flu vaccine should be given to pregnant women. Period.

    5. Thimerosal is a toxic metal. It has no place in vaccines injected into pregnant women, infants, and children. This was the sole focus of this limited discussion, which was full of inaccuracies and omissions. One important omission is this: Aluminum is a toxic metal which causes many of the same neurological and immunological damage as mercury. It has no place in vaccines injected into pregnant women, infants and children. Aluminum is present in MANY vaccines given to infants and children at levels greatly exceeding the FDA limits for other injectable medications.
