Research scientist Stephanie Seneff of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), a widely published author on topics ranging from Azlheimer’s Disease to autism and cardiovascular disease, raised plenty of eyebrows recently with a bold proclamation on autism at a special panel in Massachusetts about genetically modified organisms and other topics.

If this information holds water then alarm bells should really be ringing. Of note was Stephanie Seneff research into Roundup and links between Autism and her claim that at current rates half of US Children Will Be Autistic (by 2025)

Seneff presented slides showing a remarkably consistent correlation between the rising use of Roundup (with its active ingredient glyphosate) on crops and the rising rates of autism; while it doesn’t show a direct correlation it does give researchers plenty to think about, especially considering Seneff’s research into the side effects of autism that mimic glyphosate toxicity and deficiencies.

Monsanto claim that round up is harmless because we do not have the correct pathways to inhibit. However Stephanie Seneff who has several papers to her name has evidence that roundup does damage the flora in our gut

Seneff notes that our gut bacteria do have this pathway, and that’s crucial because these bacteria supply our body with crucial amino acids.

Of course it goes without saying that many of the studies provided to EPA where done by the drug company itself...

I have the feeling that is going to be worst than that, perhaps our future generations will become sterile also, due to all damage done to us by the companies that have influences in our foods supplies.

You have to remember, if nobody actually tests broadform than the connection will not be found. There is no test required other than what the FDA and their backers deem as necessary. There could be a relationship here, but I doubt if our FDA will investigate it, they have strong ties with Monsanto.

My wife and I were talking about a chicken oven coating we used to love when we were young. It was changed about fifteen or more years ago to a very lousy tasting chemical combination. We were eating the processed foods at the time, so we were used to this kind of food. They changed the recipe, we and thousands of people quit buying it. A salesman for some company convinced the food manufacturer that people desired this taste, the fifth taste. Since then it tasted like mushy salty Um. Not something I and many others think is good. The company probably saw a reduction in sales and the salesmen who sold it to them fed them crap that people are buying more store chickens or something and that it would have been worse if their chemicals were not in there. Now management is thinking, we have to keep this or we will lose more money when in fact people did not like their chicken coating anymore so started to buy them in stores already made. I'm not naming this coating you shake in a bag. But I think I am on the right track. Chemical sales people are very convincing and they give bonus items as incentives to people, whether it is donuts or vacations, it is lucrative to those they deal with.

Deceit comes in many forms, most of which are salesmen.

Unfortunately Monsanto is here to stay and do as they please. The only way they will ever be put in check is if we go full blown socialist, and the odds of that happening are even worse than putting Monsanto in check.

Well it's pretty obvious that SOMETHING is causing the levels of autism to rise consistently in many western nations. Those people claiming that "we're just getting better at spotting autism" are completely wrong and they need to stop pushing such lies, this is a serious problem and the longer it's ignored the worse off we will be. It truly is sad that a nation of retards can be created by corporations who place profits above everything else.

The problem with nailing down autism, is that there has been SO MUCH that changed as the rates of DX increased, that it's near impossible to pinpoint down, ALSO, that it's a spectrum "disorder" so the notion that any one thing causes it basically goes out the window.

You have genes interacting with environments which are rapidly evolving. Not only the friggin climate, but then what we're consuming, and absorbing as the years roll on.

I mean, you could point to the internet, as much as GMO's, and find the same time period and major increase, roughly. You could point to the rise in vaccination, with the rise in medicalization of practically everything that's not deemed "normal". You could even go as far as sugar intake, along side a decrease in omega 3:6 ratio, or antibiotics, with petrochemicals. Many things having roughly the same timelines, and different impacts, though we only know so very little of each for our species as a whole.

Overall, rapid adaptations, or lack their of, due to the immense changes which industry has brought about since the industrial revolution, gone into overdrive in the age of petrol, and petrochemicals, now far into hyper-drive with tech the likes of internet and smartphones.

Last thing I'll mention is:

Autism is to 1975 as psychopathy is to early 20th century. The definitions have morphed over time, and have either become more inclusive, or exclusive, depending on who you speak to, and what aspect of the "disorder" they're choosing to focus on.

We've done boxed in all the symptoms best as they have application, it's best to not keep reshaping them, and shift focus to underlying causes in the environment, interacting with the actual biology. Better yet, let nature do it's thing. More now than ever before. It's only a disorder if the current order finds issue with it. Majority = order. Looks like all we have to do is wait it out.

She doesn't just link autism with glyphosate, she also links deaths from dementia with glyphosate, obesity with glyphosate, celiac disease with glyphosate, deaths due to intestinal infection with glyphosate and acute kidney failure with glyphosate.

So is there really a link, or is she seeing false correlations due to population growth?

You could place almost anything against glyphosate use and see a similar trend.

Even completely unrelated things like global car ownership, or China's energy consumption.

So is she linking everything which is on the increase to the increasing use of glyphosate? I suspect she may be.

I think the apparent rise in autism has more to do with the tendency to categorise and medicalise what might more rationally be seen as part of the wonderfully diverse spectrum of human behaviour and characteristics.

I'm not by the way an apologist for Monsanto - I would cheerfully see them put out of business.

Well that's what I'm suspecting.

Here's a quick gif I did of her supplied autistic graph and China's energy generation:

Now, there's no way Chinese energy production can be attributed to American autism rates in children, right?

Yet the graphs are scarily close.

They should do a study on the Amish and publish their rate of cancer autism and school shootings.
I'm going to go out on a limb and postulate that it's pretty low.

When I started seeing the recent dramatic rise in autism I thought one
the causes could simply be better and more accurate autism reporting.

Of course it could also be mercury, fluoride, Aspertame, or a host of
other toxic substances that we ingest--either as parents who pass it down
thru damaged DNA, or as children who ingest something while still in

Either way, the thought of one of the tactics of war comes to mind:
It's the one where instead of killing your opponents you purposefully
only injure them, so that those that are left healthy cannot fight--they
must spend their time and energy caring for the injured.

I think that tactic would work really well on an armed, belligerent
populous that you were wanting to subdue and control.....

If half of the US children are austistic by say 2075, that would be a great way to usher in a New World Order.

Just think, the last of the thinking generation that actually learned something (born from 1975-1985) would have died off or be too old to do anything had they survived. The Y and Z generation would be too complacent to do anything about anyone unless it centered around losing a smartphone device.

So by 2075 half of the country's populous would be as gullible as George's burden in Of Mice and Men.

Sounds like a great way to bump off bottom feeders to me. Especially the dumb ones who can't learn and outnumber the few who tried to think but weren't talk in their peer group.

Spot on Mike Judge for Idiocracy.

It was 2025 not 2074..:-) It would also be very easy to control such a population and it is diabolic that not more is being done to stifle this epidemic by governmental bodies and the people of the US.

"Bokanovsky's Process," repeated the Director, and the students underlined the words in their little notebooks.

"Essentially," the D.H.C. concluded, "bokanovskification consists of a series of arrests of development."

But one of the students was fool enough to ask where the advantage lay.

"My good boy!" The Director wheeled sharply round on him. "Can't you see? Can't you see?" He raised a hand; his expression was solemn. "Bokanovsky's Process is one of the major instruments of social stability!"

Major instruments of social stability. Standard men and women; in uniform batches.

"Community, Identity, Stability." Grand words. "If we could bokanovskify indefinitely the whole problem would be solved."

He rubbed his hands. "We also predestine and condition. We decant our babies as socialized
human beings, as Alphas or Epsilons, as future sewage workers or future ..." He was going to say "future World controllers," but correcting himself, said "future Directors" instead.

The D.H.C. acknowledged the compliment with a smile.

"Over 200 million pounds of glyphosate poison is a chemical attack on America" -

"Most Americans are unknowingly eating Roundup every day.

Roundup is systemic, meaning it's taken up inside the plants exposed to it. Using veggie washes on your produce may remove some surface pesticides, but Roundup is likely in the actual vegetable, grain, fruit, or nut if it's sprayed on a field before plants are grown, or if it's sprayed around fruit and nut trees. “It’s the most abused chemical we’ve ever had in agriculture,” says veteran plant pathologist Don Huber, PhD, professor emeritus of Purdue University. “We’re using chemical quantities we never would have imagined in the past.”

GMO "Roundup Ready" crops, like most of the soy and corn grown in this country and used in the majority of non-organic foods, tend to contain higher concentrations of Roundup."

"Jeffrey Smith, founder of the Institute for Responsible Technology, points out, some of the fungi that thrive on glyphosate produce harmful toxins that can enter the food chain, either in human food or animal feed. Smith cites a UN Food and Agriculture Organization report that links one such fungus, Fusarium, in the food chain to certain cancers, a blood disorder, and infertility in animals. Smith says USDA researchers have found a 500 percent increase in Fusarium root infection when glyphosate is used on Roundup Ready soybeans. (This toxin can also appear in corn, wheat, and other crops.) "Like glyphosate, Fusarium toxins accumulate in our bodies, too," says Huber."

Psychiatric diagnosis can be used as a form of political control. Look to the USSR and their go-to diagnosis for dissidents of "Sluggish Schizophrenia."

Wikipedia - Political abuse of psychiatry in the Soviet Union

"The incarceration of free thinking healthy people in madhouses is spiritual murder, it is a variation of the gas chamber, even more cruel; the torture of the people being killed is more malicious and more prolonged. Like the gas chambers, these crimes will never be forgotten and those involved in them will be condemned for all time during their life and after their death." -Alexander Solzhenitsyn

The process of psychiatric incarceration was instigated by attempts to emigrate; distribution or possession of prohibited documents or books; participation in civil rights actions and demonstrations, and involvement in forbidden religious activity.[8] The religious faith of prisoners, including well-educated former atheists who adopted a religion, was determined to be a form of mental illness that needed to be cured. Formerly highly classified government documents published after the dissolution of the Soviet Union demonstrate that the authorities used psychiatry as a tool to suppress dissent.

In 1974, Western psychiatrists became curious about reports of the high rate of schizophrenia in the USSR: 5–7 per 1,000 population, as against 3–4 per 1,000 in the United Kingdom.[64] It was found that Soviet psychiatrists discovered a unique form of mental disease in political dissenters and called it sluggish schizophrenia.[64] Because of this form of schizophrenia, Russia in the 1980s had three times as many schizophrenic patients per capita as the USA, two times as many schizophrenic patients as West Germany, Austria and Japan.[65] There were not so many schizophrenic patients in any other country (of Western ones).

Upon analysis of over 200 well-authenticated cases covering the period 1962–1976, Sidney Bloch and Peter Reddaway developed a classification of the victims of Soviet psychiatric abuse. They were classified as:[81]
advocates of human rights or democratization;
would-be emigrants;
religious believers;
citizens inconvenient to the authorities.

I was trying to be more hopeful giving a further projection date but since you insist

The Diabolical Purplemer Plan (lol I know you didn't do it Purp)

According to statistical data, half of US children will be autistic by 2025, eleven years from the observation date.
At the rate of acceleration, any opposition to government corportocracy will be able to be overran by 2050 within the United States.
Educational initiatives will solely be for "School to Prison" to institute a hybrid debt slavery system on the guillible. Students with austistic affliction will be classified "non-persons" and be subjected to law enforcement review.
After all, austistic children will be able to be tried as adults for crimes such as temper tantrums and cursing in school. Texas has already implemented a precedent on arresting school children and charging them with misdermeanors for playing tag (assault), cursing with friends (verbal assault), truancy (parent 5 minutes late dropping them off), sexual deviancy (sexting and flirting). Three misdermeanors equals one felony; three felonies equals mandatory minimum sentence as an adult.

The last of the thinking generation will be socially marginalized by 2025; those born from 1975 to 1985 will have been isolated from property ownership via limited employment opportunities and bankrupt from student loans. Half of them will have died off or be faced with dire poverty so severe they will pose no threat; rising homeless laws against them will take care of any dissidents. Keep in mind within minority communities most of this generation was exterminated due to gang warfare policies during their childhood; half were killed, leaving roughly 60% of survivors incarcerated or with felony records making fair standard of living impossible. The other 40% that made it to advanced education as socially responsible people will be marginalized from the aforementioned.

The Y generation (born after 1990) are too complacent with narcissism of SEO to even notice anything that is going on unless it centers around their smartphone device. By 2025 we will allow government funding to put an Iphone is everyone's hand and constantly hold it over their head they it can be taken away. We will be able to track them and satiate them with gladiator tactics (games and celebrity gossip) and sexual proclivities (beyonce type stars promoting promiscuity as an acceptable norm, more gender bender experimentation and reassignment). Remember that none of these children will know how to sign their name as penmanship has been eliminated from schools and they only will know how to point and click thanks ot smartphones. Reading writing and arithmetic are obsolete since they can use their devices to look up everything by pointing and clicking. Our computer corporations will also assure us that they can remotely control the devices in the event they get the idea to remember protesting.

So by 2025 half of the country's next generation will be as gullible as George's burden in Of Mice and Men, a book few of them will even know how to read. Lacking the comprehension to read, and critically think, those who can actually procreate will do so blindly and without contraceptives. If the population gets too plentiful, we will create another AIDS type calamity to kill them off quickly and quietly. However, 1 in every three of their children will be born with defects; being autistic they will be declared mentally incompetent to care for their children and be transferred to state institutions. From here we can program them to what we want them to be.

Sounds like a great jump the shark from Hitler's wildest dreams.
