The Monsanto – Autism – Parasite Connection

If you were to do research into alternative therapies that appear to be providing clear results to the autistic community, you’d be hard pressed to find anything as impressive as the results that people are finding in using a protocol that Kerri Rivera has put together. Kerri Rivera is the author of “Healing the Symptoms Known As Autism”, and the mother of an autistic son. A core component to her protocol, which has reportedly documented over 160 outright cures of autism in the last 3 years, is an extensive protocol for dealing with parasites. I encourage anybody interested in autism to read her book and take note of the results she has documented.

In a previous blog post, I discussed the problem that parasites represent to those of us dealing with the conventional health model. When you realize that the established gold standard triple stool sample test for parasitic diagnostics fails to identify parasites better than 60% of the time, even when the parasites are known to be in the intestines, you can begin to see what a problem this creates for properly addressing the health of people dealing with a chronic health complaint(1). This means that at least 40% of the people dealing with a parasitic infection will not be properly treated, but will almost certainly be given SOME diagnosis and SOME treatment for their health complaint that will almost certainly be completely off the mark. Keep in mind that many parasitic infections don’t spend much time in the intestines to be identified, and that blood tests for parasitic diagnosis are also very poor.

How does Monsanto play into this?

If you’re looking into the problem of parasites, it makes sense to look at how our bodies defend themselves to parasitic infections, and therefore it is logical to examine possible disruptions to how well somebody may be able to make the heme based enzyme’s called “Eosinophil Peroxidase” and “Myeloperoxidase” which are known to play key roles in the defense of parasitic as well as other infections.(2)(3)(4)(5)(6)(7)

Common factors of consideration within Autism:

1) Altered Gut Ecology (8)

2) Increased intestinal permeability.(9)(10)

3) Food sensitivities.(11)

4) Altered organic acid profiles.(12)

5) Microglial activation.(13)(14)(15)

6) Impaired free radical suppression.(16)(17)

7) Impaired methylation (18)

How do these factors relate to Monsanto’s RoundUp?

Research has clearly emerged that the patented antibiotic glyphosate, which is one of the key ingredients within Monsanto’s patented herbicide RoundUp, is being found on conventionally raised corn, wheat, soy, canola, sugar beets, and cane sugar(19), not to mention in the animals which feed on those dietary staples. RoundUp is clearly capable of altering gut microbial ecology, and not in a good way.(20)(21)(22) Unfortunately, even organic food is being found to be tainted with RoundUp contamination.(23)

We know that a dominance of pathogenic bacterial overgrowth, which may be RoundUp driven, can fuel disruptions within the gut lining, and we also know that pathogenic bacterial overgrowth can fuel food allergies, altered organic acid profiles, microglial activation (inflammation in the brain), and increase free radical production, which are all common findings within autism.(24)(25)(26)

RoundUp and the consequences of heme synthesis impairment.

Research has shown that the iron carrying heme molecule which gives hemoglobin its name, may be disrupted by glyphosate, the major herbicide ingredient found in RoundUp. Heme is a component to a number of important chemical compounds within our bodies besides hemoglobin. The following are all heme based molecules:

Hemoglobin- essential for oxygen transport through the body

Thyroid Peroxidase – critical for thyroid hormone synthesis

Catalase – critical for controlling oxidative stress

Cytochrome P450 enzymes – critical for phase 1 detoxification within the cells and steroidogenesis.

Cytochrome C – a major component within the mitochondria

Myeloperoxidase – critical for immune resistance to various pathogens

Eosinophil Peroxidase – critical for immune resistance to parasites

While heme is believed to be synthesized in every cell of the body, it’s primary location of synthesis is the liver and the bone marrow. Interestingly, a prime location for where glyphosate is known to accumulate within the body is the bone marrow. Due to the similarity in molecular structure between glyphosate and the amino acid glycine, a molecule required as a substrate for the production of heme, it is very plausible that glyphosate may be directly impairing heme synthesis, and therefore creating a cascade of problems that results from suboptimal levels of heme (27)(28)(29). Indeed, porphyrins, which are molecular components of heme and heme synthesis have been found to be valuable markers in the biochemical picture of autism. Elevations of certain porphyrins can indicate impairment of heme synthesis and has been found within the autistic population(30).

While a number of other factors, including mercury, arsenic, and lead toxicity are known to impair heme, further investigation for RoundUp’s potential role in heme synthesis impairment is clearly warranted given the reasons I have detailed here. This may therefore help to explain much of what the alternative health community has been finding in relation to the propensity of parasites, chronic infections, toxicity, impaired methylation, and the other common findings observed within the autistic and chronic illness populations.

Getting tested for glyphosate toxicity.

The organization “Moms Across America” has negotiated prices down for urinary glyphosate testing. The test is now $110, provided you agree to share your results with the organization.  The more people dealing with a health problem who take part in this testing the better.

Their research is clearly finding proof of glyphosate accumulation in the population, which should alarm everyone considering the broad effects this poison has on both plants and animal life.  It’s this kind of documentation that can help stop Monsanto’s poisoning of the planet.

Is Monsanto Contributing To The Rise In Mass Shootings?

    I am glad we have a new connection since all other attempts to implicate them have failed miserably.

    Thank you Natural Blaze for publishing Dr. Buckley’s excellent article pulling together these related topics for what appears to be widespread harm to us all. It is a chicken or egg question and the damage manifests in people differently, but the concentration of neurological damage is hard to not notice. I am a 69 year old autism-spectrum female engaged in the fight for my life. Diagnosed with Liver Cancer two years ago, and that was just the beginning — currently reversing Ocular tumors (Brain Cancer you can see). I have done this entirely with nutraceuticals (only a few — cannot afford retail medicines) but mostly with plant-based medicines and medicinal foods. I have also had to address my lifelong co-infections which are hard to distinguish from the cancer and eliminating gluten was only the first step in getting to the gut issues — it takes time and some serious self-discipline, but even people with ALL THE ABOVE can get a life back. The main points I wish to make: 1) there is never ONE thing gone wrong and never one solution — try every self-treatment from probiotics to eliminating gluten/sugar/chemicals/processed foods to finding the correct medicinal plants and oils to broccoli sprout-berry juicing and more 2) never quit investigating and designing your self-healing strategies — get your Citizen Scientist on and stop waiting and looking for outside authority to tell you what to do! In my experience, the symbiotic relationship between cancer cells and many pathogens is so intertwined that the difference is immaterial — you must address them all. I have managed to hobble along and make a meaningful life, while starting out with multiple organ damage, significant toxic exposures and poisonings, traumatic brain injuries, and recently, advanced stage black mold and lyme disease contracted 5+ decades ago. How do I produce improvements every few months of my program? By paying attention to my body’s signaling, and tweeking what I do next, based on data… learning how to produce my own “medicines,” and by making lifestyle sacrifices that allow the most intelligent spending — my idea of a good treat for myself is 10# of non-China sourced Garlic! By checking in with sites like this that are on the cutting edge of teaching us all how to heal ourselves. Thank you for the information about Moms Across America and their glyphosage test.

    Just the connection we needed. Politicians as well as their own families are in as much danger as we.

    “Try every self-treatment from probiotics to eliminating gluten/sugar/chemicals/processed foods”

    Sound advice.

    The connection between glyphosate toxicity and MANY diseases is becoming more and more apparent every day. Too bad we have a bought off “government” who is paid very well to ignore this hard to ignore truth.

    Here is a connection between glyphosate toxicity and the harvesting of wheat, which is itself toxic.

    The major problem with Wheat is IMO NOT gluten (a problem) but the unfermented newly created Dwarf Wheat Hybrid species coupled with glyphosate herbicide sprayed right before harvest.

    Monsanto’s Roundup is Part of Our Problem with Wheat

    “So, most of the non-organic wheat supply is now contaminated with glyphosate. A large percentage of processed foods are made from wheat, and this helps explain the explosion of celiac disease and other gut dysfunction. What happens is that the villi in your gut get destroyed by the glyphosate, which reduces your ability to absorb vitamins and minerals. Also, wheat contains gliadin, which is difficult to break down. Normally, a reaction takes place that builds connections between different proteins in the wheat. But glyphosate gets right in the middle of that process too, resulting in wheat that is highly indigestible. Dr. Seneff and her co-researcher Dr. Anthony Samsel believe the glyphosate may attach to the gliadin as a consequence of a chemical reaction. The end result is that your body develops an immune reaction. As noted in their study:5“ Glyphosate-Treated Wheat Promotes Celiac Disease

    “Glyphosate causes gut dysbiosis (a condition of microbial imbalance in your intestines that can lead to gut inflammation and leaky gut) and an overgrowth of pathogens. Sulfur, and the sulfur pathway, plays in important part in optimal health, and when your gut is inflamed, your body’s ability to transport sulfate is impaired. This is in part why Dr. Seneff recommends soaking in magnesium sulfate (Epsom salt) baths rather than taking a sulfur supplement (such as chondroitin sulfate, for example.) This way, it can bypass your gut mucosa. The sulfur pathway is also implicated in celiac disease, and this is the connection between glyphosate exposure and celiac:” Glyphosate-Treated Wheat Promotes Celiac Disease

    “This paper shows the following mechanism related to both celiac disease and glyphosate exposure (1) disrupting the shikimate pathway, (2) altering the balance between pathogens and beneficial biota in the gut, (3) chelating transition metals, as well as sulfur and selenium, and (4) inhibiting cytochrome P450 enzymes. Read the paper for yourself and think of it next time you go grocery shopping.”

    cancer-causing glyphosate herbicide right before harvest… and you’re eating

  • Karen McLeod

    You do realize that her “treatment” is basically forcing a child to do chlorine enemas, right? You do realize what happens, right?

    The lining of the intestine falls away, and then, if you’re unlucky, the whole small intestine just gives out.

  • Jeremy

    The benefits of enemas are undeniable. The use of chlorine is suspect.
    How does the small intestine “just give out”? You do realize that enemas do not flush the small intestine, right?
