Half of All Children Will Be Autistic by 2025, Warns Senior Research Scientist at MIT

December 23, 2014

Close up of tractor spraying pesticides on cropWhy? Evidence points to glyphosate toxicity from the overuse of Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide on our food.

For over three decades, Stephanie Seneff, PhD, has researched biology and technology, over the years publishing over 170 scholarly peer-reviewed articles. In recent years she has concentrated on the relationship between nutrition and health, tackling such topics as Alzheimer’s, autism, and cardiovascular diseases, as well as the impact of nutritional deficiencies and environmental toxins on human health.

At a conference last Thursday, in a special panel discussion about GMOs, she took the audience by surprise when she declared, “At today’s rate, by 2025, one in two children will be autistic.” She noted that the side effects of autism closely mimic those of glyphosate toxicity, and presented data showing a remarkably consistent correlation between the use of Roundup on crops (and the creation of Roundup-ready GMO crop seeds) with rising rates of autism. Children with autism have biomarkers indicative of excessive glyphosate, including zinc and iron deficiency, low serum sulfate, seizures, and mitochondrial disorder.

Fukushima Through the Roof Cancer Statistic

Fukushima Children Thyroid Cancer Rate Continues To Rise

Fukushima prefecture has been conducting regular checkups of over 360,000 people who were in Fukushima in March 2011 and were age 18 or under when the nuclear crisis struck. As WSJ reported in August, a study by researchers in Fukushima prefecture found 57 minors in the prefecture have been diagnosed with thyroid cancer so far and another 46 are showing symptoms that suggest they may also have the disease. Today, as The Japan Times reports, four more children are suspected of suffering from thyroid cancer in the latest survey bringing the total to 107 out of 385,000 now surveyed. This is dramatically higher than the normal “between 5 to 11 cases per million people,” that Okayama University professor Toshihide Tsuda cites for national statistics between 1975 and 2008.

Are Scandals Pushing Obama to Start War?

From Tyler Durden at zerohedge.com:

At the moment when the Obama administration is feeling more heat than ever before, it starts another war. Suddenly everyone in the mainstream media is talking all about Syria and not about the IRS scandal, Benghazi, NSA snooping or any of the other political scandals that have popped up in recent weeks. As if on cue, Obama made headlines all over the globe on Thursday by claiming that the Syrian government has used chemical weapons against the rebels “multiple times”, and that the U.S. was now ready to do more to assist the rebels.

What I find intriguing is we fought al qaeda in Iraq and Afghanistan, but we are supplying  al qaeda–the rebels–in Syria.

The Hunt for Capital Is On

It takes a lot of money to float an artificial economy’s boat. $80-plus billion dollars a month is what the FED is pouring into the banks and financial markets to keep the house of cards standing. Artificial suppression of the interest rate has produced a tepid increase in housing. Most of the single family homes sales are re-sales of existing homes to CASH buyers, not new buyers who need a loan to buy. Many of the new housing projects are rental properties–people who can’t buy a house need a place to live.

At the same time that government expenditures are increasing, the money-making sources that the government can tax are decreasing. Small businesses, facing higher priced regulatory fees and taxes, are closing. Once profitable companies that have lost too much business in the economic downturn are downsizing or shuttering the business. When businesses close, the inventory is depleted. Employees no longer get a paycheck because they no longer have a job. The government’s ability to raise money through permits, licenses, inventory taxes, payroll taxes, sales taxes and the like is annihilated. Income tax revenues shrink; people without jobs pay no taxes.

The government’s traditional sources for raising revenue are drying up. Yet the government would never think of right-sizing itself to match its existing income. Instead, the hunt for capital is on.

According to Catherine Austin Fitts, “When G-7 concluded their emergency meeting in London last weekend, they announced that they were going to target tax havens.”

Whew, you might say. I don’t need to worry because, as John Q. Public, I have no money in a tax haven.

Well, think again. When Cyprus bank accounts were raided, it was revealed that many of the account holders were Russians, Middle-easterners, and criminals hiding cash. Other unidentied parties also were said to be hiding money in the Cyprian tax haven. The Cyprus banks were well-known as a tax haven, and many diverse entities were pouring the money into bank accounts for safe-keeping.

Those who missed the chance to extract their money before the money was seized were pissed. Do you think for one minute that if other money they have stashed in other countries also is targeted for seizure, there will not be a retaliation? Fool me once,  shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. Stealing the money of  powerful wealthy entities will not be ignored.

Russia is a big country with lots of resources. China and other Asian nations have lots of money and technology and people to follow orders. Organized crime is cash rich and has long invisible tentacles that can reach out and touch enemies using covert mechanisms. And who knows who else is hiding money in tax havens the world over.

Remember 9/11 was an angry entity sending a message for what it considered bad behavior. And who got hurt? John Q. Public. Who is still paying the price as a consequence of 9/11? John Q. Public.

So don’t think for a minute that what the G-7 does to persons or countries who stash money in a tax haven has no effect–or consequence–for you. Consider how your own personal world has changed since 9/11? If the G-7 starts stealing the money of rich and powerful Russians, Asians, Middle-easterners and other foreign nationals, drug lords, gun runners, crime bosses and others, you haven’t seen anything yet.

Hacking the Planet

Some suggest that the government has been interfering with the weather for years. That belief may have started with cloud seeding to create rain when Mother Nature was being stingy with the wet stuff.

Tonight The Weather Channel initiates a series called “Hacking the Planet.” It looks at how humans can use science to control–or at least alter–the weather. Check your local listings for broadcast information. Where I am, the program airs at 8 p.m.

A question to ask is, assuming we can do it,  should we alter the weather? What are the unintended consequences? If one location benefits from weather control, does another area suffer? Could there be weather wars? So many questions, so few answers.

Fiscal Cliff 101

Illinois attempts to gather data on who is buying or selling precious metals. Why? Why does government collect data on anything–to find a way to control it.

Utah has passed a bill (HB 157) to provide for an alternative currency to the paper dollar, also known as “fiat money.” In Utah, gold and silver coins based on the market price of precious metals can be used to buy goods. This is the real money called for by our U. S. Constitution.

Is there a movement to return to the money of our constitution? Our founding fathers predicted the problems we are now experiencing in our economy–problems that are directly caused by our government using “fiat money,” paper dollars backed by nothing.

A preacher gives a very plain explanation of what has befallen the US dollar. He says plainly what economists, bankers, the Federal Reserve and the US Government have done to ruin the US dollar. Let he who has ears hear.

After listening, are you scratching your head? Maybe you have questions like this guy:

or this guy–Jim Cramer. You know him from CNBC’s Mad Money. According to Jim, the preacher from above is right:

So what’s an American to do?

For Crying Out Loud

Our men and women of the armed services are crying–crying out for help for hundreds of soldiers a year who are taking their own life from service-induced trauma, and no one in a position of authority is helping solve the problem.

According to the Associate Press, in 2012 members of the armed forces killed themselves in record numbers. Some experts expect the trend to worsen in 2013.  The Pentagon is aware of the problem. In its own internal statistics, the Pentagon projected an 8% increase in soldier suicides in 2012. In fact, the actual increase is double, a 16% increase in suicide among military personnel.

A true life story from Associated Press tells it all:

One such case was Army Spc. Christopher Nguyen, 29, who killed himself in August at an off-post residence he shared with another member of the 82nd Airborne Division at Fort Bragg, N.C., according to his sister, Shawna Nguyen.

“He was practically begging for help, and nothing was done,” she said in an interview.

She said he had been diagnosed with an “adjustment disorder” — a problem of coping with the uncertainties of returning home after three deployments in war zones. She believes the Army failed her brother by not doing more to ensure that he received the help he needed before he became suicidal.

“It’s the responsibility of the military to help these men and women,” she said. “They sent them over there (to war); they should be helping them when they come back.”
