We are delighted to have Stephanie Seneff as our guest expert in this week's episode.
Episode 55: The Health Dangers of Roundup (glyphosate) Herbicide
Date: Friday, June 15, 2018
Time: 6:00 AM Nanjing, China (GMT+8.00)
SAMA Expert: Stephanie Seneff
Stephanie Seneff is a Senior Research Scientist at the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory. She received the B.S. degree in Biophysics in 1968, the M.S. and E.E. degrees in Electrical Engineering in 1980, and the Ph.D degree in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science in 1985, all from MIT.
In recent years, Dr. Seneff has focused her research interests back towards biology. She is concentrating mainly on the relationship between nutrition and health. Since 2011, she has published over 30 papers, together with colleagues, in various peer-reviewed medical and heath-related journals on topics such as modern day diseases (e.g., Alzheimer, autism, cardiovascular diseases), analysis and search of databases of drug side effects using NLP techniques, and the impact of nutritional deficiencies and environmental toxins on human health.
Stephanie Seneff will share the idea that the proteins that are most likely to get disrupted by glyphosate incorporation are the ones that are over-expressed during stress conditions. Particularly in the liver. It is very clear that glyphosate stresses the liver, and during the acute phase response the liver overproduces certain proteins that are involved with handling stress. Because glyphosate stresses the liver, it is much more likely that the cells will take up glyphosate and incorporate it into these proteins. And there is clear evidence that disruption of these proteins causes serious health problems.
The linked pathologies that Stephanie Seneff is seeing include amyloidoses connected to rheumatoid arthritis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, liver disease (steatohepatitis) and liver failure, and impaired innate immune system leading to an overactive antibody response and autoimmune disease. Stephanie Seneff can also link this to AIDS because the proteins that are affected are important for fighting off the HIV virus.
Stephanie Seneff will also share a list of several proteins that are upregulated in the liver under stress conditions and where defects in these proteins that specifically involve glycine mutations lead to diseases such as the above that are currently on the rise.
