In this week's episode...

In this episode Jeffrey is joined by Stephanie Seneff and Michelle Perro to discuss the evidence showing hospital discharges of insomnia go up in a correlated way with the total amount of glyphosate in the body. There is also strong evidence showing that as the microbial diversity in the microbiome goes down (which glyphosate has been shown to do) then you also reduce the production of GABA which helps the brain shut down for sleep.

Notes for this week's Podcast
This week's Transcript


Speaker 1: (00:07)
Our sleep disorders caused by GMOs in Roundup. We have correlational evidence showing hospital discharges of insomnia go up in a correlated way with the total amount of glyphosate, the chief poison in round up sprayed on corn and soy. We also have general sleep disorders. Also going up in parallel. I'm gonna turn over the screen to you, Michelle, so you can share some of the experiences you had with sleep disorders.

Speaker 2: (00:35)
Yeah. You know, um, as I already mentioned about children, um, insomnia is a, an incredibly common complaint among adults. I read exposed to you about dyssomnias and kids and insomnia. And, um, in a lot of, um, these neurotransmitters that are calming are out of balance. So kids have too many, um, activity promoting hyper driving, um, neurotransmitters and not of enough of the calming ones like serotonin. And we know that these, the, to making these, um, these, uh, chemicals that, um, help sleep are decreased or diminished even such as serotonin, and that is affected by the chicken make pathway that Stephanie referred to earlier. So, um, I would say that, um, yes, we have deficiencies in sero. Yes. It's driven by diet. Yes. We don't have enough calming neurotransmitters to induce sleep. We often use things like five HDP Orhan, or we give melatonin, we can talk about melatonin.

Speaker 2: (01:35)
I don't like them as long-term solutions. I often use them as short-term solutions, um, in dealing, uh, with insomnias. And I also have parents as well as adults turn off the wifi it's it's multimodal it's diet and others. Um, I don't wanna create a conversation here around wifi and electromagnetic frequencies, but it's part of the equation. Um, and also, um, your microbes also, uh, chat with each other electromagnetic frequencies. It's all linked Jeffrey. Uh, so, um, I think again, it's related to glyphosate, um, neurotransmitter serotonin decrease in melatonin, and this balance of neurotransmitters which are made in the gut, your brain also makes serotonin by the way. Um, and that could be affected by some of the other things we talked about and like, uh, oh my gosh, uh, activation of all the neural cells, et cetera,

Speaker 1: (02:30)
I'm gonna add what Karen and Christian, the microbiome expert talked about. He said that when the microbial diversity goes down, which it does when you expose the human microbiome, glyphosate and Roundup, then you negate the production of GABA, which is, and also BN D DNF, which stands for brain derived neurotropic factor. And they're really important to that. They upregulate the parasympathetic nervous system and shut down the brain, making it able to sleep. But if you don't do that, then you're producing stress hormones instead, which is exactly the opposite that you want to, to accomplish that by having, and this is just a microbiome, uh, view of the world, cuz Kiron looks at the world through the microbiome in a beautiful way. How would you like to contribute to cause you did you did those, um, correlational studies with Nancy Swanson. You did look at that. What do you think? How can you add some of the, uh, biochemical pathways and physiological changes that you think glyphosate is causing that results in lack of sleep?

Speaker 3: (03:41)
Yes. And I mentioned the aluminum problem before where glyphosates escorts aluminum into the, into the brain and gets it into the pan gland, which disrupts its ability, um, how harms it. And then there's also a sulfate problem with the, uh, pine gland. I believe that, um, sunlight exposure to the eyes. So sunlight exposure to the skin, induces cholesterol, sulfate at synthesis in the skin, cholesterol sulfate is a molecule we didn't talk about, but it's extremely important I think. And I think it's disrupted by glyphosate and that's a reason why we have high serum LDL, which is also, uh, going up in step with glyphosate. Uh, the, that gets you outta statin drug. I got a little bit off track there, but um, cholesterol sulfate in the eye. So in your, so in the morning, it's really important to get out and get that sunlight exposure to your, to your eyes.

Speaker 3: (04:26)
And that will induce the synthesis of sulfate heparin sulfate actually by the Pineland. And then that heparin sulfate, the Pineland uses that heparin sulfate to supply sulfate and it ships out melatonin to the, uh, cerebral spinal fluid. So it, it, it attaches sulfate to the melatonin and chips it out to the cerebral spinal fluid. And then it's therefore supplying both the melatonin and the sulfate to the brain to help the sleep. And though they're both very, very critical for the sleep process. So both the sulfation process is disrupted by glycosate because the enzyme that does that is a, is an orphan SI enzyme. It's called OSE and I've written a lot about it. I think it's getting disrupted by glyphosate, which is interfering with the ability to, to, to maintain adequate sulfate and the enzymes that, uh, activate the sulfate and that transfer the sulfate. They're all disrupted by glyphosate. So you get a huge problem with sulfate deficiency in the brain. As I mentioned earlier, which interferes with sleep in as well as interfer as causing all these, uh, neurological diseases. Uh, so it's the aluminum, the lack of sunlight, um, exposure to the eyes. And I actually feel very upset when they see a child wearing sunglasses. I think that's criminal. I really think this, the children need to receive sunlight into the eyes to help to maintain the sulfate supply for the pineal.

Speaker 1: (05:44)
Uh, I wanted to know how long it takes switching to an organic or non GMO diet to help the sleep patterns. Now I know from my own surveys, 1082 people reported getting better from insomnia specifically. And, uh, 65% of them said it was either significant, nearly gone or completely completely handled. But from a clinical standpoint, Michelle, and I know you deal mostly with children, so it may not relate to adults. How quickly does it switch to organic diet result in better sleep?

Speaker 2: (06:20)
You know, it's pretty rapid. Um, it's not, you know, the gut can take a while to heal. Um, I've seen, you know, at, because a lot of these sleep disorders are linked to other disorders and when you switch an or organic diet, you're fixing a lot of things at once, particularly gut and then sleep improves. So there are a lot of things that are linked. So it's hard to delineate, just sleep because often the patient's IC, just don't have a sleep disorder. It's more than one thing. They have several issues going on, especially when you ask them. Sometimes people don't realize even they have other issues going on because, uh, sick is new normal. And it's like, oh, everybody has allergies. Doesn't everybody have asthma. Doesn't everybody have no everyone doesn't, but actually it can happen pretty quickly. People start to say, wow, I had a good night's sleep last night when I changed my diet.

Speaker 2: (07:11)
Now people will say that with alcohol, for example. So they realize when they drink a toxic substance, it affects their sleep. You eat a toxic substance, it will affect your sleep. So this idea alcohol is a toxin. Okay, let's be clear. It's good. But it's toxin. Glyphosate is a toxin, not so good, so it can happen quickly. So we have to keep drilling in this idea that we have chronic poisoning, low dose poisoning, in some case, not so low dose from glyphosate, we are being daily poisoned. And when you remove the poison, um, I've seen sleep improve with quickly in a couple of days.

Speaker 1: (07:52)
All right, we're gonna leave it there. We're gonna leave it there. Cuz then we're out of time. I want to thank you, Michelle and Stephanie, as I'm telling the audience, we've never done this before. No one has done this before, where we look at all of these components on a per disease basis. When you receive these cut up sections of this talk, when it's per disease, please share it widely in your social media because we want this to get traction. We want the people suffering from these diseases to know the relationship between their disease, GMOs and Roundup and the, the importance of eating organic. And you can have a strong, take a strong position to help that get out by sharing this over and over again. And thank you both Michelle and Stephanie. And thank you real truth about health,

Speaker 4: (08:42)
Uh, Jeffrey, Jeffrey, Michelle, and Stephanie. This has been, I mean, how disturbing and frightening and alarming. And on the other hand, how privileged and filled with gratitude, we all are that you came together to do this unprecedented, uh, uh, presentation. This has been phenomenal for all of us. Um, obviously we won't get, we don't have time for a Q and a, but it was so worth it to have all of you join in and empower the rest of us. So thank you. Thank you so much to all of us, uh, to all of you rather and, um, wanna make sure that everybody knows to coming back for more. And is there anywhere else you guys wanna share about where each individually, everybody can find you was? What's the best website to go to

Speaker 1: (09:23)
Stephanie? Why don't you start then Michelle?

Speaker 3: (09:25)
Um, Stephanie dot. That is my new website, that where I talk about my book and have some other things there too. And, and also I have my MIT website, which is, um, which is, uh, this is a Stephanie center dot and in there's a C cell MIT website that you can find if you, uh, Google me or something. So, oh, there you go. You got the other one there too. So there's two of 'em. One of them. This one has lots and lots of, uh, information while my papers and my slide decks. I, I have a lot of my slides. These slides are available on my website at MIT, this C cell do

Speaker 1: (09:58)

Speaker 2: (09:59)
Um, starting in July 1st, I am starting a new website, Dr. Michelle, no period after doctor. And I'm gonna be doing weekly zooms teaching parents, um, specifically on integrative pediatrics, because it's really hard to find integrative pediatricians who practic five holistically. Um, and it'll be a membership. I'm not turning anybody away for lack of ability to pay. This is to get the word out there on how to empower parents to care for their own children and to teach how the body has an innate ability to heal itself.

Speaker 1: (10:32)
N GMO An amazing source. Michelle is the executive director of GMO And I am the exact director of the Institute for responsible technology. And you can also go to live healthy, be to catch my podcast, to catch, to catch the secret ingredients movie at live healthy, be, also healing from GMOs and Roundup on online course and which the shell has interviewed for as well as the 90 day lifestyle upgrade how to help you adapt an organic diet very quickly with less cost and less time. But the mothership E the mothership, uh, website is responsible And once again, thank you for real truth about health for giving us an opportunity to come together, to share all this information and mix and match in ways that have never been done before.
