A new study from Chiba University of Japan and UC Davis of California, has shown that maternal exposure to high levels of Monsanto/Bayer's glyphosate herbicides caused autism-like symptoms in young male rats. Animal studies are considered highly relevant to the National Institute for Health and the only basis for approval by the EPA.
The new study is groundbreaking as it clearly shows the mechanism of how glyphosate herbicides can causes autism through alterations of the gut microbiota and an increase of soluble epoxide hydrolase (sEH) enzyme in the brain. Significant findings showed that when the pregnant and lactating rates were given an sEH inhibitor orally, the autism behaviors were prevented. (Editor’s note: In addition to glyphosate, other toxins as noted can contribute to this harmful alteration.).

1 out of 34 children in some US states have autism. It is expected, if we continue at the current rate, for autism to affect half of our children within a decade.
Glyphosate is used widely in landscaping and farming, thereby contaminating most of our conventional food, many personal care and medical products, and throughout our environment.
We are all being exposed too often and too much. For a pregnant mother or infant, this could create dangerously high levels.
We have an autism epidemic
