Back in the 1990s, Dr. Rosemary Waring treated many autistic patients, and she identified impaired sulfation homeostasis as a key feature of autism. She suspected defective versions of specific enzymes needed to synthesize, transport, and deliver sulfate to the blood and all the tissues. Her hypothesis has been confirmed in a paper published in 2021, where the authors found shockingly low levels of heparan sulfate in the pineal gland in association with autism, along with impairments in a class of enzymes called sulfotransferases. Low levels of heparan sulfate in the brain have been found in association with autism in both human and mouse studies. Glyphosate is the active ingredient in the pervasive herbicide Roundup. My research on glyphosate’s mechanism of toxicity led me to believe that glyphosate disrupts many enzymes involved with sulfate management. Autism rates have been going up over time in the US exactly in step with the rise in glyphosate usage on core crops. In this presentation, I will explain the science behind all of this, and provide specific recommendations for how to keep your children healthy.
