RoundUp Ready - The Far-Reaching Impact of Intensive Glyphosate Use with Dr. Stephanie Seneff

Wednesday September 25, 7:30 PM to Wednesday September 25, 9:00 PM
Daytona Beach Campus - Willie Miller Instructional Center, Lemerand Auditorium

Since the advent of the genetically-modified “RoundUp Ready” seeds patented by Monsanto/Bayer, use of glyphosate in agribusiness has increased exponentially, and globally, since it has been deemed “safe” for human consumption. MIT Senior Research Scientist Stephanie Seneff will provide compelling evidence that glyphosate is the most dangerous toxic chemical in our environment today, is pervasive in our food supply and is the main cause of the rising rates of a large number of devastating metabolic, autoimmune, neurological and oncological diseases in America, and increasingly, around the world.  She notes that “it is also a major disruptor of the planet's ecosystem.  For example, it likely plays a major role in Florida's recent crisis with cyanobacteria overgrowth. Taking everything into account, she argues that we must “go back to renewable organic methods in agriculture to protect ourselves and the earth from devastation.” This event is brought to you by the Honors Series and is free and open to the public.
