MIT doctor reveals link between glyphosate, GMOs and the autism epidemic

(NaturalNews) A major missing link in the search for what's triggering a massive spike in autism rates appears to be the world's best-selling weedkiller, Roundup. Dr. Stephanie Seneff from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) has been studying the autism issue for several decades, and her copious research has led her to the almost undeniable conclusion that glyphosate, the main ingredient in Roundup, is a major driver of autism.

What was once an extremely rare health condition now afflicts roughly 1 in 68 children, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). And if things continue down the current path, says Dr. Seneff, nearly half of all children born in the year 2025 will be born with autism, which can result when the the gut microbiome of humans is destroyed, which depletes the body of needed minerals and can exacerbates the toxicity of other chemicals, including those added to vaccines.

"[The autism rate] has come up from 1 in 10,000 in 1970 -- so that is already an incredibly alarming change," stated Dr. Seneff during a recent interview with Next News Network. "I got worried eight years ago when I was seeing it rising, and people were saying, 'Oh, it's just more reporting, more diagnosis' -- that's a way to hide the evidence."
