Glyphosate Pretending to be Glycine

Stephanie Seneff, PhD Senior Research Scientist at MIT has been researching autism for the past 10 years, focusing particularly on environmental toxins’ contribution to autism.

This is a great video for everybody, not just those concerned with autism.  It appears glyphosate contributes to a wide number of diseases that have increased dramatically, including diabetes, obesity, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, ALS, adrenal insufficiency, anemia, spina bifida and of course, autism.  In this talk, Stephanie  presents an amazing story about biochemistry gone awry.

Worth a watch!

 

Brain scans show potential to diagnose autism in infancy

Children with autism tend to be diagnosed around age 4, after a child begins to socialize and speak. But the earlier a child is diagnosed, the better. Early-intervention speech and behavioral therapy programs have shown promise at reducing symptoms. Now, new research shows such a diagnosis could be predicted as early as one year old — based on scans of infants’ brains.

Diagnosing autism very early in a child’s life might mean better interventions and outcomes. On average, children aren’t diagnosed with autism until they are four years old — once their brain has begun to expand, and once they begin behaving differently than neurotypical children — though some are diagnosed as early as their second birthday, Pletcher noted.

“Our findings are pre-symptomatic, certainly pre-consolidation of the diagnosis,” said Dr. Joseph Piven, who leads the eight-center Infant Brain Imaging Study Network, which did the research. “That’s a giant step in the field.”
