Glyphosate’s link to Diet & Autism

What is Glyphosate? It is a controversial grass and weed killer, called “Round Up” which is manufactured by Monsanto, a sustainable global agriculture company. Many foods are contaminated with this cancer-causing herbicide. The relationship between nutritional deficiencies and environmental toxins on human health can be a direct link to autism. Side effects to glyphosate include zinc and iron deficiencies, seizures, and mitochondrial disorder.

U.S. Farmers spray glyphosates on over 175 million acres of food crops, enabling farmers to kill weeds without killing their crops. Studies show that pregnant women who live near farms where pesticides are used have a two-thirds higher risk of having children with autism. Glyphosate residues remain stable in food for a year or more. It is important for parents to understand that glyphosate contamination will not evaporate when cooked, frozen, or processed. No amount of scrubbing will rinse away this harmful toxin.

Toxic glyphosate residues in the Western Diet include sugar beets, wheat, sugar, soy, and corn as they are mostly genetically modified in the United States. Children with autism have biomarkers indicative of excessive glyphosate. Research shows that glyphosate may be a key player in Argentina’s growing health problems, where birth defects have skyrocketed among GE corn and soy farming communities. In 2007, glyphosate was the most used herbicide in the United States agricultural sector and the second-most used in home and garden. However, to date Monsanto’s Glyphosates have been banned in Russia, Netherlands, Mexico and Auckland. By 2020, France will ban all non-agricultural pesticides.

Proper nutrition is our best defense against disease. To learn more about our client observations with diet and autism, come hear Wendy speak in depth on the topic Thursday, December 8th at 7:00pm. All attendees will receive a complimentary list including all 48 fruits and vegetables with pesticide residue to avoid.
