At a conference held in December of 2014, Stephanie Seneff, PhD, stated, “At today’s rate, by 2025, one in two children will be autistic.” Then ending her presentation with the final thought, “In my view, the situation is almost beyond repair. We need to do something drastic.”
Since, mixed feelings and statements are emerging. It seems as though some Americans are refusing to believe something this big could happen and the rebuttals given by GM lobbyists appear to soothe their fears. Let’s be honest – is it so hard to believe that by consuming large amounts of unnatural ingredients for decades it’s possible it could have an effect on our children?
Research done in various countries concludes these 2 truths:
1)There is Evidence — And A LOT of it.
-Children with Autism have biomarkers indicative of excessive glyphosate.
-Glyphosate and BT Toxins are showing up in unusually high quantities in the blood of pregnant women, the blood in the fetus/unborn baby, and in breastmilk.
-Pregnant mothers who live by a farm where pesticides were applied have a 60% increased risk of children having autism spectrum disorder.
-Glyphosate is present in unusually high quantities in the breast milk of American mothers, at anywhere from 760 to 1,600 times the allowable limits in European drinking water.
-Urine testing shows Americans have ten times the glyphosate accumulation as Europeans.
-Most American Doctors, who are aware of lifestyle choices that affect chronic health concerns and certain birth concerns, will suggest limiting or completely eliminating Genetically Modified foods from your diet.
-Corn, Soy and Wheat all have small amounts of glyphosate, as well as our beef and chicken since they are fed with corn and soy. A little bit will be ok, but here it’s the cumulative effect that needs to be considered.
-Dr. Seneff points out, Roundup kills beneficial gut bacteria, allowing pathogens to grow; interferes with the synthesis of amino acids including methionine, which leads to shortages in critical neurotransmitters and folate; chelates (removes) important minerals like iron, cobalt and manganese; and much more. Glyphosate is possibly the most important factor in the development of multiple chronic diseases and conditions that have become prevalent in Westernized societies. Including but not limited to: Autism, Allergies, Cancer, Parkinson’s Disease, IBS, Colitis, Crohn’s Disease, Cardiovascular Disease, Infertility, Multiple Sclerosis, Obesity, Depression, Alzheimer’s, ALS and more.
2) Paying attention to resources not connected to the Monsanto, GM lobbyists and even USDA will help you to see the entire picture here.
-GM lobbyists have made untrue claims in the past such as claiming Bt Toxins are safe when in fact multiple reports have proven otherwise.
-USDA released a study claiming that 99% of food samples taken were deemed government safe, but due to costs concerns testing for glyphosate residue were never tested.
-In 2009, a French court found Monsanto guilty of lying; falsely advertising its Roundup herbicide as “biodegradable,” “environmentally friendly” and claiming it “left the soil clean.” Mounting evidence now tells us just how false such statements are.
Hmmmmm – I smell some fishy business.
I know there are enough articles on the internet stating these claims, leaving the reader wondering, “I understand the problem. How do I fix this?” Here are a few suggestions though I do suggest everyone do their own research:
1)Buy Organic or GMO free foods.
If you are on a budget, prioritize your animal products (milk, eggs, chicken & beef) to be all organic or better yet grass-fed.
2)Give Up Most of Your Soy, Corn & Most Wheat foods.
You do not really need to eat chips, cereals, and candies or drink soda regularly, but there are GMO-free & organic versions of all these items in whole food stores if you want some treats. I myself have a bit of a need for healthy chocolates and organic chocolate tastes better in my opinion.
3)Embrace the local markets and farms.
In my area, there are multiple co-op groups who support their local farms. In co-ops, you can sometimes purchase organic, grass-fed, non-GMO animal products and produce for the prices of a chain grocery store or close to due to a group discount. A quick Facebook group search or google search is easy!
4)Pay very close attention to your gut health.
Most every person in the states has an unbalanced ratio of bacteria. Too much bad, not enough good. As stated above, healing your gut helps the body to absorb the nutrients needed to maintain your health.
