How glyphosate destroys our ability to produce “super-cannabinoids” and is the reason for the exploding rates of autism

Autism is complex. No one has yet presented a comprehensive understanding of the disease process. In this article, I wanted to touch upon some simple core principles. I hope that by the end of it you start to see that what is happening here is beyond concerning.

According to the CDC, laboratory testing newly diagnosed individuals with autism is not recommended. This means no celiac antibodies, allergy testing, immunologic or neurochemical abnormalities, micronutrients such as vitamin levels, intestinal permeability studies, stool analysis, urinary peptides, mitochondrial disorders, thyroid function tests, or erythrocyte glutathione peroxidase studies. And these are just basic tests. We are not even talking about more complex lab tests like nagalase and glyphosate. So don’t be surprised if your pediatrician thinks you are a little kooky!

Here, I will make a blunt claim about a very toxic chemical: Glyphosate. The effects of glyphosate on the human organism are horrendous. I will present scientific evidence of harm. The effects of this herbicide on the brain will explain why autism can present as such an acute regression. I specifically wanted to highlight a key finding I came across, which hopefully will be an eye-opener for those who are starting to grasp the magnitude of this.

Glyphosate – It is Everywhere. Literally.

Glyphosate Study Food Democracy Now StudyGlyphosate [a.k.a Roundup, produced by Monsanto, Inc.) is the world’s most widely produced herbicide.

The top foods that are genetically modified in the United States are soy, corn, cotton, alfalfa, papaya, canola and sugar beets.

More than 70 percent of processed foods in your local supermarket contain genetically modified ingredients. The percentage may even be higher, because no labels are required to inform consumers about the presence of GMOs in food.

In 2015, 92% of corn, 94% of soybeans, and 94% of cotton produced in the US were genetically modified strains. The use of glyphosate has dramatically increased since the mid 1990’s after the introduction of genetically modified (GMO) glyphosate-resistant crops.

Over 1.2 billion pounds of herbicides are used in U.S. agriculture every year. Just recently, Food Democracy Now! reported alarming levels of glyphosate in some of our kids’ favorite foods (Cheerios, Ritz crackers, Oreo’s and Kellogg’s corn flakes to name a few: click image above).

Interestingly, glyphosate and its toxic metabolite AMPA were found in over 75% of the air and rain samples tested from the Mississippi Delta agricultural region in 2007.

As you will see below, this is just the tip of the iceberg. Just within the last year, independent research organizations found glyphosate to be present in all childhood vaccinations, prenatal vitamins, breastmilk and newborn formulas. Now let’s see what scientific evidence there is in regards to toxicity of this chemical. After this, I will show you how toxic this chemical is on your brain.

Glyphosate – Evidence of Disease

Let’s look at what we know so far. The World Health Organization demonstrates that the Round-Up chemical not only causes stomach inflammation, fertility problems, endocrine problems and liver damage, but also cancer and could be linked to complications with autism. Here some highlights from mostly European studies, including the WHO:

“…in a long term combined study of toxicity and carcinogenicity in rats given glyphosate at normal doses, inflammation was observed in the stomach mucosa…” 

-International Agency for Research on Cancer, World Health Organization

“Taken together, these data suggest that Roundup exposure may affect human reproduction and fetal development in case of contamination.”

-University of Caen, Institute of Biology, Paris, France

“Ingestion of >85 mL of the concentrated formulation is likely to cause significant toxicity in adults. Gastrointestinal corrosive effects, renal and hepatic impairment are also frequent and usually reflect reduced organ perfusion.”

-Bradberry SM et al; Toxicol Rev 23 (3): 159-67 (2004)

“Despite its relatively benign reputation, Roundup was among the most toxic herbicides and insecticides tested.”  

-University of Caen, Institute of Biology, Paris, France

“Case control studies in the USA, Canada and Sweden reported increased risk for NHL (non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma) associated with exposure to glyphosate. 

-International Agency for Research on Cancer, World Health Organization [WHO]

“Effects at 30,000 ppm included central lobular hepatocyte hypertrophy in males, central lobular hepatocyte necrosis in males, chronic interstitial nephritis in males, and proximal tubule epithelial basophilia and hypertrophy in females.”   

-California Environmental Protection Agency/Department of Pesticide Regulation

“The results/ suggest that acute toxicity at lethal doses may occur as a result of the uncoupling of oxidative phosphorylation.”

-WHO/International Program on Chemical Safety; Environmental Health Criteria 159, Glyphosate, (1994).

“Taken together, these results demonstrated that Roundup might lead to excessive extracellular glutamate levels and consequently to glutamate excitotoxicity and oxidative stress in rat hippocampus.”

-Cattani D et al; Toxicology 320: 34-45 (2014)

“The study tested the effects of glyphosate and Roundup at lower nontoxic concentrations on aromatase, the enzyme responsible for estrogen synthesis. The glyphosate-based herbicide disrupts aromatase activity and mRNA levels…”

-Richard S et al; Environ Health Perspect 113 (6): 716-20 (2005)]

“Glyphosate also caused DNA and chromosomal damage in human cells […] one study in community residents reported increases in blood markers of chromosomal damage (micronuclei) after glyphosate formulations were sprayed nearby.”                                   

WHO; IARC Monographs Volume 112: evaluation of five organophosphate insecticides and herbicides (March 20, 2015)

And some more…

“Roundup exposure may affect human reproduction and fetal development in case of contamination…”
 PMID: 17486286

“Glyphosate is toxic to human placental JEG3 cells within 18 hours with concentrations lower than those found with agricultural use…”
PMID: 1257596

“Maternal exposure to glyphosate disturbed the masculinization process in the offspring and promoted behavioral changes and histological and endocrine problems in reproductive parameters…
PMID: 22120950

“Roundup […] could contribute to Sertoli cell disruption in spermatogenesis that could have an impact on male fertility…”

Glyphosate and Autism

Is glyphosate to blame for autism?

Glyphosate Autism Rates

Correlation does not equal causation, but on the flip side, I beg you to disprove it!

The autism rate was 1:2,000 just over 30 years ago. As of 2016 the rate is at an alarming 1:48. According to senior MIT researcher Stephanie Seneff, half of all children will be autistic in 2025, if the rates keep climbing like they have. The higher incidence is not because we have gotten better at diagnosing autism, but because of the increasing sales of GMO crops that are sprayed with herbicides, which started in the mid-1990’s.

IGlyphosate in Prenatal Vitaminn 2013, Seneff discovered that glyphosate causes a disruption in the liver enzyme P450. This enzyme detoxifies drugs and other toxins with which we come in contact with.

To the right you can see the results of Bayer’s Prenatal1 tested by Microbe Inotech that showed glyphosate contamination (full glyphosate test results).

P450 is also involved in the production of an active form of vitamin D that stimulates your immune system to fight off disease-provoking proteins, which cause inflammation and auto-immune diseases. This compound formed is called globulin component macrophage-activating factor [GC-MAF]. Many labs dealing with synthetic GC-MAF were raided and shut down. Please research GcMAF. There is plenty of good information about it online.Prenatal Vitamin Glyphosate Result

In the presence of glyphosate, any immune system will have trouble producing this compound. GcMAF is believed to be one of the most powerful defense mechanisms in the human body and our bodies naturally produce it. But you need the P450 enzyme to do so. And again, this is the enzyme that is targeted by glyphosate.

Just recently, Moms Across America‘s Zen Honeycutt confirmed that glyphosate is contaminating newborn formula and also all childhood vaccines. This prompted me to test these prenatal vitamins in my office, since most are corn or soy based. The results were shocking. Mothers attempting to provide the best conditions for their babies are unwittingly flooding the developing fetus with glyphosate-laden prenatal vitamins.

The mother’s poor diet leaks glyphosate into the breast milk. Not surprisingly, Moms Across America found glyphosate in breast milk of mothers when tested.

Around 8/10 women in the United States bottle-feed their babies at 6 months of age. Since formula is soy/corn based, obviously glyphosate was found there as well.

Enfamil Baby Formula & GlyphosateIn fact, Enfamil’s Prosobee was found to have 170ppb of glyphosate in it. For a frame of reference, the California EPA found that:

“Effects at 30,000 ppm included central lobular hepatocyte hypertrophy in males, central lobular hepatocyte necrosis in males, chronic interstitial nephritis in males, and proximal tubule epithelial basophilia and hypertrophy in females.”

The study showed these effects at only 30,000 parts per million, and Probobee contains 170 parts per billion.

“Taken together, these data suggest that Roundup exposure may affect human reproduction and fetal development in case of contamination.”
University of Caen, Institute of Biology, Paris, France

To give you a better idea how toxic glyphosate is: 5.2 parts per million kill a white shrimp [the approximate size of a 6-week human embryo].

6-week human embryo & shrimp

The EPA says trace amount are negligible, however, what quantifies “trace amounts” is poorly defined, and accumulative effects are unknown. We already mentioned formula, vaccines, prenatal vitamins, poor diets, the mother’s breast milk, Cheerios, Oreo’s, and Goldfish. This is likely just scratching the surface. Are we being poisoned? Understandably, human embryos are more evolved than shrimp, but I hope you can start to see how powerful and toxic this one ubiquitous chemical is.

With over half a million reported pregnancy losses before 20 weeks in this country every year you start to wonder why 16 developed countries have up to one third the fetal losses than the United States.

MMR Vaccine & GlyphosateLet’s continue with the perfect setup for the development of autism. Poor diets high in GMOs during pregnancy, prenatal vitamins, flu shots during pregnancy (confirmed to contain glyphosate), and formula all add up to considerably huge amounts of glyphosate. Many autistic children already have gastrointestinal problems before they are supposed to have the glyphosate-containing MMR vaccine.

So do they already have liver problems? Do they already have an inability to produce GC-MAF to reduce systemic inflammation? What could be worse than injecting a high dose of glyphosate now to an already immunocompromised system? This injection bypasses the liver and the proven toxin goes directly to the brain. And here is where we are getting into some interesting concepts.

Glyphosate and the Brain – Highly Toxic

A breakthrough discovery came along when I studied this P450 enzyme that gets destroyed by glyphosate. It happens to be very prevalent in the brain. To give you an idea how significant this is, just follow along with this:

Nuerons Firing

The endocannabinoid anandamide is a neurotransmitter that you produce. It is there to make sure communications among neighboring neurons run smoothly.

With 100 billion neurons in our brains and 200 firings per second to 1,000 other neurons, we have 20 quadrillion bits of information transmitted per second in your brain. That is a 2 with 16 zeros behind it. The main mechanism revolves around neurotransmitters.

Anandamide is one of several neurotransmitters. It is known as our own endocannabinoid, as you produce it even as you read this article. It is highly expressed in 13 different regions of our brain. It is well recognized in its involvement with the neurotransmission processes in regards to pain, depression, appetite, memory, fertility and cognition. It binds tightly to a recptor called CB1 to execute those actions.

Anandamide

A recent discovery at the University of Michigan revealed that when our brains are under stress, e.g. inflamed due to alcoholism, the P450 enzyme in the brain is highly expressed in these 13 brain regions.

Anandamide 2

The reason for this “up-regulation” is that Anandamide is being converted into a very powerful anti-inflammatory molecule called 5,6-EET-EAs [epoxy-eico-satrienoic-acid-ethanolamides].

This compound literally acts as “super CBD”, because it activates the CB2 receptor 300 more likely than the CB1 receptor and it activates it 1000 times stronger than CBD would. This is a groundbreaking discovery because we used to believe that P450 “detoxifies”, e.g. breaks down molecules, whereas now we understand that the Anadamide-converted 5,6-EET-EAs are activating the CB2 receptors at a much higher rate.

Anandamide 3

CB2 receptor activation wakes up microglia, which are little “Pac Mans” that are activated by this super-CBD 5,6-EET-EAs. They start eating up the compound causing the inflammation in the first place (in autism, often times heavy metals such as copper, aluminum, mercury, etc.).

Anandamide 4

Anandamide 5

So now you can imagine what happens when a child is getting the MMR vaccine, filled with high concentrations of glyphosate and neurotoxins like aluminum. Remember that by injecting glyphosate, you bypass the liver and brain exposure is guaranteed, leading to destruction of the enzyme that makes this powerful antioxidant: 5,6-EET-EAs.


The brain is left defenseless against toxins causing the inflammation. This is why in autism, the brain is permanently bathed in heavy metals. Tests of autistic children’s hair, plasma and urine show alarmingly higher-than-average levels of heavy metals. Incidentally, these tests are NOT recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics. In fact, no blood testing is recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics, as they claim autism is a neurodevelopmental disorder rather than an exposure-caused disorder.

Autism NueronsThe result of this glyphosate injection via CDC scheduled vaccines is activation of neurons and inflammation. Not only are the toxins not being cleared, but glyphosate by itself causes neuronal activation along with glutamate. They both act as neurotransmitters. Glyphosate is a glycine mimetic, meaning it can act like a neurotransmitter by itself. High amounts of glutamate can hence activate brain cells.

glycine mimetic

Glutumate-glycine-glyphosate
We know from United States Patent 6630507 that the cannabinoids from plants (e.g. phyto-cannabinoids) help with antioxidant activities. In fact, this exact process is the reason cannabis oil can help to limit the inflammation in the brain. According to this patent released by the Department of Health and human services, cannabinoids are protecting the brain.

United States Patent 6630507

We have hundreds of parents demonstrating results with cannabis oil for their autistic children (CBD is needed just as THC is). For them, it simply works. Why? For one, you are providing a way to replenish THC for anandamide that is being utilized for protecting the brain by shifting towards the 5,6EET-EAs production pathway.

All this is barely scratching the surface of autism’s complex nature. These individuals still have damaged livers. The liver needs to work, otherwise their immune systems remain compromised (for example, vitamin D cannot be activated) compounded by the inability to detoxify the body from accumulated toxins. (You can learn more in my presentation on endocannabinoids and the brain).

GcMAF

Hence, the cannabis oils are only a temporary “rescue” so to say. They protect your brain from circulating toxins. So how do we repair the liver’s ability to start producing the P450 enzyme?

The liver! It is an amazing organ. It can regenerate, if it receives the correct “signals” to do so. I invite anyone interested in this subject to contact me. Currently, we have very promising results with specific protocols that we are utilizing to achieve liver regeneration.

Now what?

There is a whole movement in public and private discussion groups consisting of tens of thousands of parents.

One of those groups is the MAMMAs (Mothers advocating Medical Marijuana for Autism), who have chapters in numerous states. They are currently working on legislation in Texas to have autism as a treatable condition.

Avoid genetically modified foods at all cost. Demand safe vaccines ! They are all full of glyphosate. This is dangerous! There is simply too much evidence to dispute this. If you would like to read more about the research about cannabis and autism, please click on the resources below. Please visit the MAMMAs on Facebook, the largest cannabis/autism community growing exponentially. Also, please consider donating towards the Israeli study that is currently underway to scientifically prove that cannabis is helping these children. It is the world’s first study that uses cannabis as a treatment modality for children affected with autism.

Join the March Against Monsanto movement! 38 countries/428 cities protested in unity this year. Avoid GMOs in the supermarket. Founder Tami Canal has fearlessly led this movement since the beginning with currently 1,3 Million followers on Facebook. Only if we get rid of their poisons will we get rid of all these diseases! Find out the latest at the March against Monsanto.

Please do not start any treatments before you talk to your physician. Most importantly, don’t do anything illegal! This is just the latest on the horizon and my personal research conclusion. More studies need to be performed to show that all of this to be valid. If the government keeps limiting our ability to do these studies, it is up to us parents to stand up to what’s right. The federal government should not dictate how to treat disease. It should be up to the parents and their caregivers and licensed health professionals.

In 2013, Pres. Obama inked his name to H.R. 933, a continuing resolution spending bill approved in Congress days earlier. Buried 78 pages within the bill exists a provision that grossly protects biotech corporations such as the Missouri-based Monsanto Company from litigation. Obama has bitterly failed us. He We can only hope that our new president listens.

Here was an earlier plea that was [obviously] ignored:

I will see you at AutismOne in Colorado Springs, May 24-28th, 2017, where I will give several lectures and will dive much deeper into the subject for you.

I don’t write these articles for profit or fame. I don’t expect anything in return. At the end of the day I only want one group to profit: our children,who are our future.
