“Generations backwards, children were far less sick than they are today. 

A great range of diseases such as asthma, cancer, autism, birth abnormalities and disorders, are elevating. 

Modern science leaves no room for doubt, and all blame falls down to the occurrence of pesticides, which are becoming the latest trend of the day.” October 2012 report by Pesticide Action Network North America (PANNA)

Seen chronologically, in 1975, 1 in 5000 people suffered from autism. 

In 1985, it was 1 in every 2,500. In 1995, the odds came to 1 in every 500, whereas in 2005 the number was 1 in every 166 and, finally, today it is estimated to 1 in every 68 children. 

Because of this, scientists are drawing maximum attention to the matter.

‘We are actively engaged in finding the reason for such an increase, whether it is environmental or other.” – states Craig Newschaffer, an epidemiologist at Drexel University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Latest studies keep alerting and indicating that genetics are not the sole reason for autism. 

Various factors are under close observance (environmental toxins, medical drugs and others), while the reasons for this are being analysed as well as the reason for such an exaggerated autism rate increase.

“The day has come to start inspecting the environmental factors responsible for the exceptional increase in the rate of autism in California.”  – tells Irva Hertz–Picciotto, epidemiology professor at University of California.

Plenty of evidence is now directing us to the fact that agricultural pesticides (and many other environmental toxins) might be responsible for the express growth in autism rates in the past few decades. Dr. 

Stephanie Seneff, a senior researcher from The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), is dedicated in raising awareness of these discoveries that will be crucial in the world of mainstream medicine.

During her appearance at an event organised by the holistic-focused Groton Wellness Organization, she said:

“Having in mind today’s numbers of autism rate increase, by 2025, one in two children will be autistic.”

Seneff provided slides demonstrating a significantly consistent association between the rising use of Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide (with its active ingredient glyphosate) on crops and the rising rates of autism; 

this certainly opens up loads of questions in researchers, especially regarding her research about the side effects of autism mimic glyphosate toxicity and deficiencies.


Even though the graph demonstrates a significant association, it does not assert that the rise in autism is strictly a result of glyphosate. 

From another point of view, we are provided with a lot of information and research that indicates glyphosate to be one factor (out of numerous) and Dr. 

Seneff states that it is. Pesticides have been closely related to various human health disorders from Parkinson’s, to Alzheimer’s, to cancer and autism. 

Many of these studies are available on the Internet.

During her research, Dr. 

Seneff, also insists that aluminum containing vaccines may also be a threat.


Throughout her lecture, Dr. 

Seneff stated that Monsanto frequently debates that glyphosate is not toxic (although plenty of studies showed how toxic it is) since human cells don’t posses what is known as the “shikimate” pathway. 

The significant thing, however, is that our stomach and intestines do actually posses such pathway and we rely on it to supply us with essential amino acids (and various other things). 

This may be extremely alarming if we agree to the fact that gut health is of crucial importance to overall health. 

Seneff also implies that there are several other ingredients within glyphosate that significantly expand their toxic effects.

It is a concept that makes you think, isn’t it? 

How is it possible for a corporation like Monsanto (a corporation entrusted with management of global food supply) assert that glyphosate is safe, ignoring the fact that all evidence show to the contrary?

“It is globally accepted that Roundup is among the safest pesticides… Unlike its reputation, Roundup turned out to be one of the most toxic among the herbicides and insecticides tested. 

This deviation between scientific fact and industrial statements may be idealized to huge economic interests, which have falsely estimated the health risks and postponed health policy decisions.” – claims R. Mesnage et al., Biomed Research International, Volume 2014.

Be aware of the fact that the application of glyphosate rose 1500% from 1995 to 2005, and that 100 million pounds of glyphosate is implemented every year on more than a billion acres.

It is even been proven that traces of it are found in mothers’ breast milk and urine samples of people across Europe.

The most significant toxic effects of glyphosate recognized by Dr. Seneff are as follows:

Destroys helpful gut bacteria and enables pathogens to develop

Obstructs the function of cytochrome p450 (CYP enzymes)

Deducts important minerals (iron, cobalt, manganese, etc)

Obstructs the synthesis of aromatic amino acids and methionine – causes deficit in critical neurotransmitters and folate

Disrupts sulfate synthesis and sulfate transport

Pesticide formulations that are sold and used are up to 1000 times more toxic than what we are informed of. 

Actually, Roundup is the most toxic of herbicides and 

insecticides applied. An exceptional amount of proof arises and regards to improper safety assessments.

“Additives in pesticides are commonly known to be inerts and because of this they are not subjected to testing in everlasting regulatory experiments. 

As a result of that it is shocking that they rise up to 1000 times the toxicity of their Active Principles in 100 % of the cases where they are stated to be present by the fabricator.” – R. Mesnage et al., Biomed Research International.

Seneff informs of a number of established “bio-markers of autism.

” These contain low serum sulfate, obstructed gut bacteria, inflammatory bowel, serotonin and melatonin deficiency, mitochondrial disorder, zinc and iron deficiency and plenty more.  

She also states that:

“All of the above can all be defined as possible effects of glyphosate on biological systems.”  

Dr. Seneff investigates even more thoroughly, and these elaborations are easily found on the Internet.


“Evidently, the manner in which agriculture develops nowadays, results in the change of diseases. 

People have transformed from a healthy population to one affected by horrendous diseases such as cancer, birth disorders and sicknesses rarely seen before on such an elevated level. 

The tobacco companies keep negating the correlation between smoking and cancer and after a seriously long period of time that statement proved itself to be true. 

The biotech and agrochemical corporations do exactly what the tobacco industry does; 

they manipulate and promote business over the health of the population.” – claims Dr. 

Medardo Avila Vazquez, a pediatrician specializing in environmental health.

Recently, a great extent of research has been conducted regarding environmental toxins (agricultural pesticides are one of them) in autism.

For instance, the latest study from the University of California Davis, shows that pregnant women who live near lands and farms where chemical pesticides are/were used experience a two-thirds bigger risk of having a child suffering from autism spectrum disorder or another developmental disorder.

“The study we enforced confirms the results of previous research that had introduced correlations between having a child with autism and exposure to agricultural chemicals in California during pregnancy. 

Even though additional research needs to be conducted in order to compare one group’s exposure effects to these materials with another group exposed to them, the final conclusion is assertive: 

Pregnant women must avoid contact with agricultural chemicals at all times.”  – Janie F. Shelton, a UC Davis graduate student who now consults with the United Nations, lead author of the study.

Another recent study published in the journal PLOS Computational Biology, from researchers at the University of Chicago discovered that autism and intellectual disability (ID) rates are closely related to the exposure to harmful environmental factors.

In a different study, a group of scientists combined reviews of well-known information that indicate how European regulators were aware of the birth and brain malformations since at least 2002 , caused by Monsanto’s glyphosate. 

Regulators misinformed the public about glyphosate’s safety, and in Germany the Federal Office for Consumer Protection and Food Safety informed the European Commission that evidence of glyphosate causing birth defects is totally false. 

Actually, numerous studies confirmed that mothers who are exposed to the usual, “safe” pesticides give birth to children with lower intelligence, structural brain abnormalities, behavioural disorders, impaired motor skills, higher rates of brain cancer and small head size.

The list is endless and more information regarding this issue are available on the Internet.

“The frightening thing is that we have been aware of these dangers for decades yet have taken no measures to prevent them. 

Scientists at the National Research Council insisted on an immediate action to protect young and bodies in development from pesticides even twenty years ago. 

Still, children all over the USA are continuously subjected to pesticides that are proven to be harmful and hazardous in places they continue to live, learn and play.”
