    This is amazing stuff Chris. I think you know that ranching cattle is my “early retirement” activity. For 30 years before that I worked as an MD. Stephanie Seneff’s take on a wide range of serious but common illness associated with glyphosate is pretty compelling. it is certainly way outside the ” conventional wisdom” box, not dissimilar to Alan Savory’s take on land degradation being a function of total or partial rest. I am sure that she receives the same rejection as does Alan. What astounds me is that there is no research being done on the effects of glyphosate on humans. . The belief that glyphosate is harmless because mammals lack the shikimate pathway,(which is how glyphosate kills plants) is staggering. Dr Seneff’s background is extraordinarily unique. Her computer skills allow her to find and manage data. Her MIT laboritory is a stand alone. Her scientific mind allows her to understand the biochemical pathways. I spent 3 days studying her claims and although I am not a biochemist, I cannot find fault in her logic. As a rancher, I am attracted to Holistic management because it addresses head on financial, environmental and social aspects to my lifestyle. It’s about doing what is right, not what is convenient.. I am attracted to Dr Seneff’s work because she is honest enough to look at eg autism, which in 1970 affected 1 in 10,000. Now it affects 1 in 50 !!!!!! If glyphosate is involved, then we need to know about it. Never forget, that Galileo in 17th century was persecuted because he argued that the earth rotated around the sun. Conventional wisdom said the opposite. It takes brave people to challenge the status quo. This is heavy duty stuff but worthy of our time. I thought you did really well interviewing her.

    • Paddy, Thank you, I really tried hard to clarify a lot of things she was say, because she is so damn smart. You doctors… I tell you =D. I don’t think there is one cause of Autism, it’s probably a combination of all our terrible food, lifestyle and environmental factors like chemicals. It’s very alarming though, I’ll tell you that. It’s a really sad state of affairs. If the government got the hell out of the way, the food production methods in the world would change overnight, for the better.

        I’m not one of these anti-glyphosate people. I use it regularly as a spot spray for noxious weeds. If anything, Stephanie Seneff’s work is an inconvenient truth. Autism presents with a range of neurological impairments in association with GUT problems which include a range of food allergies and inflammatory bowel. Serum sulphate is consistently low in autism sufferers at 1/3 the level of normal. There also is an increase in urinary p-cresol. In 1970 autism affected 1 in 10,000. Today it affects 1 in 50. Why the link to glyphosate ? Glyphosate by derailing the normal gut microbes causes inflammation in the bowel. It also blocks the production of 3 essential amino acids, phenylalanine, tyrosine and tryptophan.failure to synthesise these aromatic amino acids results in other things being made. P-creosol is one of them. . Glyphosate is also associated (according to Dr Seneff) with impaired sulphate metabolism, one of the mechanisms being Cytochrome P450 enzyme (CYP) deficiency. CYP is essential for detoxification processes in the liver as well as the synthesis of cholesterol sulphate and vitD3 sulphate in the sun exposed skin. So it seems that glyphosate can produce impaired brain function, decreased levels of circulating sulphate, increased urinary p -cresol and chronic inflammatory bowel disease and food intolerances. All symptoms and signs of autism spectrum disorder. A dog can be recognised because it has 4 legs, a wagging tail, long teeth and a bark. I learnt a long time ago that in medicine common things occur commonly. Dr Seneff makes alarming sense to me.
        In the absence of any better explanation on the part of the medical researchers, I believe we have a duty to have her work looked at. Too much is at stake. If nothing is done for autism, 20 years from now it will affect 1 in 2. By the way, I think she is really onto something with heart disease, Alzheimer’s and diabetes. Hamster studies show GMO Foods make them sterile. No explanation why. Dr Seneff offers a reasonable explanation via biochemical pathways.

        • Paddy it’s always great to get your perspective, seeing as your a doctor! Thank you. I think people can learn a lot not only from the podcasts but reading the comments, like yours.

    Wow! Fantastic interview Chris. This is mind blowing information. I’m going to have to listen to this episode several times to absorb it all but I want to commend Dr. Seneff’s bold work. Please keep it up. We need many more scientists and doctors investigating this issue. I grow a lot of my own food and raise meat and milk on my small bit of land all to better my family’s health. My big problem is buying in grain for my livestock. I can’t afford organic or non-GMO feeds and therefore it probably contains glyphosate residues – ugh! I’m working towards growing many alternative grains and legumes to supplement the feed but I don’t think I’ll ever get fully away from GMO feeds. Hopefully more farmers will switch to non-GMO grains/legumes and bring the price down over time.

    • Matt, I agree, we need more hard science behind this stuff. It’s hard to get funding when Monsanto probably controls a lot of the money. Most universities are funded by large corporations that teach their desired curriculum. We should all be very grateful to Stephanie Seneff!

    Another fascinating and important podcast. Thanks again.
