Glyphosate and Autism

Disease Connection to Glyphosate/Roundup®

Important ~ Please watch and share!

If you care about your health, you want to take time to watch this important interview by Jeffrey Smith,leading consumer advocate with Dr. Stephanie Seneff, Senior Research Scientist at the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory. Dr. Seneff’s work is focused on the relationship between nutrition and health. Her new research paper (co-written with Anthony Samsel)“Glyphosate’s Suppression of Cytochrome P450 Enzymes and Amino Acid Biosynthesis by the Gut Microbiome: Pathways to Modern Diseases” published in Entropy, focuses on glyphosate (the active ingredient in Roundup®) and “its ability to induce diseases.”

Listen to what Dr. Seneff has to say connecting glyphosate with many of the diseases (gastrointestinal disorders,
obesity, diabetes, heart disease, depression, autism, infertility, cancer and Alzheimer’s disease) that have risen alongside the increase in glyphosate/Roundup® use due to GMO seed (soy, corn, sugar and wheat) plantings.

GMO OMG  - a film by Jeremy Seifert



a film by Jeremy Seifert

I believe that one of the best ways to get the word out about GMOs is through film. Which is why I’m super excited to share this new film, GMO OMG written, directed and produced by Jeremy Seifert.

The first thing that I noticed that stood out to me as one of the most important elements to this important film is the poster with a child eating an ice cream cone. Children trust adults to care for them. American children are eating GMOs each and everyday with their family and friends, at home, school... As the woman said in the trailer. if GMOs are so wonderful, why not promote and advertise their greatness? Isn’t that what most corporations and manufacturers do with their products?

In Jeremy’s film, he investigates the corporate takeover of our precious food seeds and how the loss of our seed diversity affects his children, our planet and our freedom to choose! He asks “Has the global food system been irrevocably hijacked? Or can we take back our food, heal the planet, and live sustainably? The choice is ours, but we have to start now!”

In Theaters September 13, 2013

“The corn we see growing around here is actually registered as a pesticide. But its also a food?” ... “ Well, that’s debatable.”

“Monsanto threatened to sue the state.”

“Is there a pretty good likelyhood that I’ll get an interview with someone at Monsanto or”... She said “You need to leave right now.”

“If there’s nothing to hide, then disclose it.”

Who controls the future of our food?

Genetic Roulette by Jeffrey M. Smith

Jubilee Wellness Series Presents
Jeffrey Smith’s Award~Winning Film

Genetic Roulette
Tuesday, June 18th

7-9pm Jubilee! Asheville, NC

Join us for a showing of Jeffrey Smith’s Award-Winning documentary Genetic Roulette ~ the Gamble of our Lives. Experts expose the SERIOUS THREATS and how corporations like Monsanto hide the evidence

NEVER-BEFORE-SEEN EVIDENCE points to genetically engineered foods as a major contributor to rising disease rates in the US population, especially among children. Gastrointestinal disorders, allergies, inflammatory diseases, and infertility are just some of the problems implicated in humans, pets, livestock, and lab animals that eat genetically modified soybeans and corn.

Monsanto’s strong arm tactics, the FDA’s fraudulent policies, and how the USDA ignores a growing health emergency are also laid bare. This sometimes shocking film may change your diet, protect you and your family, and accelerate the consumer tipping point against genetically modified organisms (GMOs) already underway. Don’t miss this film!
