The "Silent Spring" of our time: scientific evidence that the active ingredient in the world's most commonly used herbicide is responsible for a host of debilitating chronic diseases Glyphosate is the active ingredient in Roundup, the most commonly used herbicide in the world. The United States uses more of it, per capita, than any other country. Nearly 300 million pounds of glyphosate-based herbicides are sprayed on American farms--and food--every year. Agrichemical companies claim that glyphosate is safe for humans, animals, and the environment. But emerging scientific research on glyphosate's deadly disruption of the gut microbiome, its crippling effect on protein synthesis, and its impact on the body's ability to use and transport sulfur--not to mention several landmark legal cases-- tells a very different story. In The Glyphosate Effect, MIT senior research scientist Stephanie Seneff, PhD presents compelling evidence based on countless published, peer-reviewed studies that glyphosate plays a major role in skyrocketing rates of chronic diseases, including gut dysbiosis, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, autism, infertility, and more. Dr. Seneff describes glyphosate's unique mechanism of toxicity that slowly erodes human health over time, as well as its impact on soil, ecosystems, and the nutritional quality of the nation's food supply. As Rachel Carson did with DDT in the 1960's, Stephanie Seneff sounds the alarm on glyphosate, giving you essential information to protect your health, your family's health, and the planet on which we all depend.
