As if to corroborate a growing trend in rising autism rates, a senior research scientist from MIT has warned that of all children, a disquieting 50% will be autistic by 2025. What’s the culprit? Monsanto’s best selling Round-Up containing glyphosate is top on the list.
The overuse of glyphosate in our food supply is causing diseases like Alzheimer’s, autism, cancer, cardiovascular disease, and nutrition al deficiencies, among others. Stephanie Seneff, PhD, a research biologist who has published over 170 scholarly peer-reviewed articles, and has studied these diseases for more than three decades, points to GMOs as a major contributor to neurological diseases in children.
At a recent conference, Dr. Seneff declared:
“At today’s rate, by 2025, one in two children will be autistic.”
Currently, one in every 68 children in the US is born with autism. It is currently the fastest growing developmental disability, with rates having increased by almost 120% since the year 2000. In ten years, the cost of treating those affected by autism will cost us $400 billion annually, in addition to the untold emotional costs which families pay daily to live with and support a child with autism.
