For over three decades, her research interests have always been at the intersection of biology and computation: developing a computational model for the human auditory system, understanding human language so as to develop algorithms and systems for human computer interactions, as well as applying natural language processing (NLP) techniques to gene predictions. She has published over 170 refereed articles on these subjects, and has been invited to give keynote speeches at several international conferences. She has also supervised numerous Master's and PhD theses at MIT. In 2012, Dr. Seneff was elected Fellow of the International Speech and Communication Association (ISCA).
In recent years, Dr. Seneff has focused her research interests back towards biology. She is concentrating mainly on the relationship between nutrition and health. Since 2011, she has published over two dozen papers in various medical and health-related journals on topics such as modern day diseases (e.g., Alzheimer, autism, cardiovascular diseases), analysis and search of databases of drug side effects using NLP techniques, and the impact of nutritional deficiencies and environmental toxins on human health.

IN THIS EPISODE:
I don’t like to be seen as a scare-monger by any means. There’s too much to be hopeful about in the world. But I do want to bring you the information that you need to know to safeguard your health and live your best life. That’s why I bring you shows like this one about the many ways glyphosate poisoning is impacting our society. Dr. Stephanie Seneff is my guest, and she’s the leading expert on the subject.
Do you know what a glyphosate is? It’s a synthetic amino acid that is a primary component of most pesticides. But that’s not all. It’s also added to vaccines and other things we ingest or put into our bodies. Until recently we didn’t know the impact it could have on us but great people like my guest on this episode, Dr. Stephanie Seneff have done the research to discover the many ways glyphosates poison our food and water supplies. I hope you listen so you can learn about this very serious problem.
When I was on the PGA tour as a professional golfer I was exposed to all kinds of chemicals on the golf courses due to the way they groom and keep up the course. I’ve spent years detoxifying myself from the glyphosate I was exposed to and I’m still not done. Because of that, you can understand why I was excited to have Dr. Stephanie Seneff on the show to educate us about this dangerous chemical and teach us what we can do to cleanse ourselves from it.
Glyphosates are in almost all food sources these days. Even if a farmer is organic in his practices the rainwater and groundwater he uses to water his crops will have at least trace amounts of the chemical in them. That’s just an example of how terribly we’ve polluted the planet with this destructive compound. But on this episode you can learn the best ways to protect yourself from glyphosates, so be sure you listen.
Infertility and Autism are being linked more and more to exposure to glyphosates. Dr. Stephanie Seneff has made the case for both quite strongly and on this episode she reveals why she believes that by 2023, 50% of children born will have autism - unless we do something to curb the damage glyphosates are having on our environment and food supplies. You can learn the truth about glyphosate poisoning, on this episode.

A description of how glyphosate impacts the body from MIT PhD. scientist Stephanie Seneff:
1) Glyphosate is an antimicrobial agent (antibiotic) and it preferentially kills the good bacteria, which causes an overgrowth of pathogens in the gut. This leads to leaky gut syndrome and inflammatory issues.
2) Glyphosate chelates rare minerals like manganese, cobalt, molybdenum, copper, iron, sulfur, selenium, etc., and this disrupts the management of these very important nutrients throughout the body. The minerals end up piling up in the wrong places, causing both toxicity and deficiency at the same time.
3) Glyphosate disrupts cytochrome P450 enzymes in the liver, which are important for many things, two of which are activating vitamin D and detoxifying multiple toxic chemicals and drugs. Acetaminophen (tylenol), for example, becomes toxic when these enzymes aren't working.
4) Glyphosate works synergistically with the aluminum, mercury, and glutamate in vaccines to cause much greater harm than would be the case if there were no glyphosate present in the blood when the vaccine was administered.
5) Glyphosate interferes with the shikimate pathway, which is used by both microbes and plants to produce the essential aromatic amino acids. Our own cells don't have this pathway, and they depend upon food sources and synthesis by gut microbes to supply these nutrients. They are precursors to many biologically important molecules such as the neurotransmitters serotonin, melatonin, dopamine, and norepinephrine, melanin, vitamin E, vitamin K, etc.
In my view, the core pathology in autism is insufficient sulfate in the cerebrospinal fluid in the brain. This causes a severe impairment in neurogenesis and an inability to "clear the trash." It's indirectly caused by sulfur deficiency, melatonin deficiency, impaired sulfate synthesis, impaired sulfate transport, and excess flushing of sulfate through the kidneys - all induced by glyphosate. There's also neuroexcitotoxicity from glutamate and glyphosate and aluminum working synergistically.
