The Consequences of Eating Plants Sprayed with Roundup

You don’t have to be a genius to figure out that something has gone horribly wrong in the last twenty years with our health and obesity levels. Stephanie Seneff, PhD, a Senior Research Scientist at MIT, may have the missing link; glyphosate, the active ingredient in Monasanto’s Roundup Herbicide.

Dr. Seneff links glyphosate with “autism … gastrointestinal issues such as inflammatory bowel disease, chronic diarrhea, colitis and Crohn’s disease, obesity, cardiovascular disease, depression, cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, and ALS, among others.”

Her stunning article published in the journal Entropy states that the effects of glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup, which is sprayed on genetically engineered crops is “the most important factor in the development of multiple chronic diseases and conditions that have become prevalent in Westernized societies.”

As you may recall, Roundup ready crops are grown from patented seeds made to withstand tons of herbicide instead of dying like a seed found in nature would. Glyphosate is also sprayed on all grains to dry them out (does gluten intolerance ring a bell?).

Watch Dr. Jeffrey M. Smith’s fascinating interview. If this doesn’t convince you to go all organic, I don’t know what will.
