According to the latest statistics, at least 1 in 68 American children are diagnosed with autism. Could RoundUp Ready GMOs be a contributing factor? More research is definitely needed but there are several studies that are raising red flags with potential links. A recent study found that probiotic therapy alleviated autistic behavior in mice. The study acknowledges that there are many environmental factors that may adversely impact gut microbiota, and it does not examine all of them. Another recent study found that Roundup had an adverse effect on the gut microbiota of chickens. With GM crop technology failing and Roundup resistant superweeds on roughly half of the farm acreage in the US, ever increasing amounts of Roundup are being sprayed on our food. This leads us to ask... could Roundup Ready GMOs be contributing to the rise in autism? Read the research in the links below and let us know... What do YOU think?
