The Silent Spring of our time

From an MIT scientist, mounting evidence that the active ingredient in the world's most commonly used weedkiller is responsible for debilitating chronic diseases, including cancer, liver disease and more

Glyphosate is the active ingredient in Roundup, the most commonly used weedkiller in the world. Nearly 300 million pounds of glyphosate-based herbicide are sprayed on farms and food every year.

Agrichemical companies claim that glyphosate is safe for humans, animals and the environment. But emerging scientific research on glyphosate's deadly disruption of the gut microbiome, its crippling effect on protein synthesis and its impact on the body's ability to use and transport sulfur, not to mention several landmark legal cases, tells a very different story.

In Toxic Legacy , MIT senior research scientist Stephanie Seneff, PhD presents stunning evidence based on countless published, peer-reviewed studies that glyphosate plays a major role in skyrocketing rates of chronic diseases, including cancer, gut dysbiosis, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, autism, infertility and more. Dr. Seneff describes glyphosate's unique mechanism of toxicity that slowly erodes human health over time, as well as its impact on soil, ecosystems and the nutritional quality of the nation's food supply.

As Rachel Carson did with DDT in the 1960's, Stephanie Seneff sounds the alarm on glyphosate, giving you essential information to protect your health, your family's health and the planet on which we all depend.
