Dr. Stephanie Seneff, a senior research scientist at MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, explores the intersection between biology and computation, with an emphasis on human health and the environment. In this episode Dr. Seneff and I discuss how toxic chemicals such as pesticides cause micro-nutrient deficiencies, which make us manganese deficient which then promotes mitochondrial dysfunction, autism and even cognitive decline.

Dr. S. goes into detail on how glyphosphates (Roundup) are a pivotal cause in the rise of autism spectrum, gluten issues, Rheumatoid Arthritis, ALS, and even supports a new perspective of adverse consequences of vaccines.

She explains that Roundup might be the main reason why the US has such astronomical healthcare costs. Glyphosate gets into proteins, by mistake, in place of glycine. This has huge adverse consequences throughout the body, damaging methylation, rinsing folate out of tissues, and partially explains the epidemic in opioid drug abuse. This chemical is scattered throughout your supermarket cart, in your your kid’s crackers, cereals, and even inorganic garbanzo beans.

Dr. Seneff explains that the non-veggie gel capsules of most supplements contain robust levels of Roundup as it is fed to the animal sources these capsules come from. Dr. Seneff is especially interested in combating diseases with wise, organic food choices and she shares what she eats (or rather her husband cooks, lucky duck). Dr. Seneff says that sulfur doesn’t get enough respect, it is our micronutrient hormonal and neurotransmitter Uber, transporting and maintaining healthy reserves of nutrients throughout the body. 

Dr. Seneff has authored 24 peer-reviewed journal papers over the past few years on these topics. She’s been called a controversial scientist and a genius. This episode goes at a speed that requires your complete focus, inspires awe, and enjoyment with lots of helpful info.
