1974, 1968, Stephanie Senneff discussed on One Life Radio

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Are broadcasting live from Dallas, Texas and I heart media as well as K M E. T in Southern California on ABC News talk. I am so honored to introduce Dr Stephanie San if she is a PhD and is a senior research scientist at MIT's computer science. And artificial intelligence laboratory. She has a bachelor's degree in biology with a minor and food and nutrition and a master's degree engineer's degree and PhD in electrical engineering and computer science, all from M I T. She has authored over three dozen peer reviewed journal papers on topics relating relating human disease to nutritional deficiencies and toxic exposures. Focusing specifically on the herbicide glyphosate and the mineral sulfur. Doctor Senneff is the author of Toxic Legacy. How The Weedkiller Glyphosate is destroying our Health and the environment. The book we are discussing Today You can find Dr San Off on Twitter at Stephanie Senneff or on Facebook at Stephanie dot senneff 0.0.5 Such an honor to have you with us today, Dr Sunny Thank you for taking time to jump on one life radio with us. My pleasure. Thank you. Oh, my gosh. Okay, So let's get started on this today. As I said, we're talking about your book. Toxic legacy. What is the history of glyphosate? The active ingredient and round up? What is it? And why do farmers use so much of it? Glyphosate is the most used herbicide on the planet and the United States uses more per person than any other country. Start with that it's considered to be extremely safe for humans, which is why it's so popular. And it was developed back and you know, it was discovered back in the 19 sixties patented by Monsanto as an herbicide in 1968 introduced in the market, probably in 1974. People were using it Residential e on the yards to kill their dandelions, But more importantly, it's used. It's used on food has gone up dramatically over the past, especially beginning around 2000 when they've got this technology together. To an engineer using genetic modification GMO technology to engineer specific major crops to be resistant to glyphosate, so they They were very excited that they could figure out how to introduce a bacterial gene into the genome of the plant that gave it a version of the enzyme that glyphosate disrupts. That was not sensitive to go and visit so they could just breathe it. The poison all over the crop. Otherwise it kills all plants. They could spray it all over the crop of crop didn't die. A great way to control the weeds. Reduce the cost of food. And then this huge farms have, you know been to come since then? Massive farms of GMO corn and GMO, soy gmo, gmo sugar, beets and alfalfa canola. These are some of the major GMO crops and so the use of life they went up dramatically, really exponentially. In the first decade of this century. Because it was so safe. Nobody worried about it. It's all over the food supply. At this point, you really can't avoid glad visit in your food. Even if you go certified organic, which I recommend everybody do, But it's something The problem is that it's not not safe and the regulatory process was sloppy back then. It's got through approval, even though there was evidence that it was toxic in the studies that were done. And and now that it's been approved, you know that the EPA is so busy with all the new chemicals that are being offered all the time that they don't even want to resist it. Life is eight that's already settled. It's already settled. It's wonderful. It reduces food cross costs. As long as we pretend it's not toxic to us. Everything's fine. But the problem is that it is toxic to us. Yeah, it is. And I'm reading that the EPA has captured, you know, I was reading this little bit about the EPA and glad to say this is, however, the e P A is a captured agency, meaning it is dominated by the industry presume, presumably regulates. And enter and you know, the internal documents are now public in the Monsanto Papers demonstrate that the EPA prioritizes the interests of corporations like Monsanto or political groups over the interests of the public, and it's charged with that it's charged with protecting Would you agree with all that? That is a major major flaw of are ready? He really needs it begs to be corrected because it's not just glasses that's getting through approval process when it's actually toxic. So it's a really serious problem. We have so many chemicals. Yeah, we do exposed to all the time and they they don't have time to study of a different chemicals, especially different chemicals and combination. There's a lot of synergy among different chemicals and life is is important in that respect because it disrupts the liver's ability to detoxify other chemicals. Many of which are fat soluble. So when you can't detox, those they become much more toxic because of the simultaneous presence of life. Hmm. How does Clive Asi disrupt our microbiome leading to get got despite Aosis, autoimmune disorders, neurology generation and more. I mean, it's it's It's It's It's toxic. It's really bad, and it's everywhere, isn't it? Dr San Off That's right. You can't avoid it. It's not just in the food. It's in the water. It's in the air. It's in the rain. It's everywhere. It's pervasive in this country. I don't even think there's a place you could go in this country that you wouldn't be exposed to it, which is really, really sad. And it takes time for it to break down to is another worry because in certain situations, it can last for a long time, even up to 12 years. So that's a problem too. Just like you know other chemicals that we've had before. That they keep on living after their supposedly stopped right. We're gonna have a problem. This is going to be around for a long time. The gut Microbiome is central, and in fact, I have a whole chapter on the gut Microbiome and the dye itself and how they like this. It disrupts it. It's quite a fascinating story Took me a long time to write. That chapter had to read a lot of papers because the gut is really complicated if you look into the literature There's an amazing number of papers coming out lately. You know, for the longest time, they didn't really think about the gut Microbiome because it was working just fine. But it started misbehaving. You know, in this century and people started writing papers about Noticing, disrupted gut microbiome and connecting it to all kinds of diseases, including, for example, autism and Parkinson's disease, rheumatoid arthritis, many diseases that are not obviously connected to the gut. Are being caused by the disrupted gut microbiome, and it starts very early in life, because when the infant starts even the milk the the human milk is contaminated with black and so is especially the soybean formula. The infants being exposed to black state early on the lactobacillus, which are central to the metabolism of milk are getting really hit hard by glad to state, So it turns out that it's more The microbes that are more sensitive to glad they are the ones that are crucial for the infant gut. They get off to a bad start, and then you get pathogens over growing because the other ones are weakened. It leaves space for the pathogens to grow things like clustered and salmonella, which are resistant to glasses. And the problem is that these microbes, many of the microbes in our gut have the exact same end under the plant SAP. This is a critical piece of the puzzle that people don't realize it's called PSP. Since it's an energy I'm in the chicken meat pathway, which is a very important biological pathway in the plants. It produces a central nutrients for the plants. The same thing is true in the microbes, many of them had this pathway have this enzyme are sensitive to glide. And so they get wrecked as well. Just they get killed, just like the plants get killed by the poison. And then you get this really big mess because all kinds of things go south in the gut. When you don't have the right microbes doing jobs that they normally Jews, they provide the B vitamins they provide. In fact, the output of that pathway She can make pathway is three aromatic amino acids. These are basic building blocks of the proteins. And these are also precursors to several really important, biologically active molecules in our body, including serotonin, melatonin, the skin tanning agent, Melbourne and thyroid hormone. Various B vitamins. All of these things come out of that pathway that gets disrupted and we depend on our microbes to produce those precursors to those Important molecules through the pathway that glyphosate disrupts so you can see how that's going to cause all kinds of deficiency. Oh, yeah, And that's going to cost depression and violent behavior. Obesity. All these things can come out of these hormone imbalances. Oh, yeah, I learned so much from reading your book. I just like I am so all over it. Toxic legacy is what we're talking about with Dr Stephanie Senneff. If you just now joined us, it's an amazing book. As I said earlier in the broadcast, I don't know if you heard it. Everyone needs to read this book. Everyone in the world needs to read this book, so they have an understanding of what's really going on with life, a state and how it truly Is slowly killing all of us..
