Video: Two Brilliant Inquirers on the Dangers of Glyphosate

Dear brothers and sisters,

We are pleased to present this insightful discussion with Jeffrey Smith and Stephanie Seneff on the dangers of glyphosate, the active ingredient in the herbicide Roundup. Jeffrey is the founder of the Institute for Responsible Technology and Stephanie is a top research scientist at MIT. The discussion underlines the toxicity of glyphosate; they see a correlation between its use and the rise in autism. In 1970 the incidence was 1 in 2222, it is now  1 in 54.  On the basis of current trends, it seems that 80% of the boys  will be on the autism spectrum in 2032.

Thankfully, where children have been put on an organic diet their healing and restoration to vibrant good health, has been dramatic.

Your suggestions and comments are most welcome.

Please accept our best wishes to  you and family for good health, prosperity and success,

Jesse Schwartz PhD
