Dr. Stephanie Seneff is an expert in many areas, the MIT staff researcher’s focus has been on interfacing human communication with technology. Her background also includes a degree in biophysics which is where her focus has circled to more recently. Dr. Seneff has been studying how glyphosate molecules interact with amino acids, in particular, glycine. Dr. Seneff believes that glyphosate molecules are attaching to glycine receptors and causing many major health complications including infertility, autism, and DNA damage. Today we kick off our discussion on Monsanto’s popular pesticide and wether it is responsible for our declining health as a human race.
