Article
Full-text available
Usage of the herbicide glyphosate on core crops in the USA has increased exponentially over the past two decades, in step with the exponential increase in autoimmune diseases including autism, multiple sclerosis, inflammatory bowel disease, type 1 diabetes, coeliac disease, neuromyelitis optica and many others. In this paper we explain how glyphosa...

Glyphosate, a synthetic amino acid and analogue of glycine, is the most widely used biocide on the planet. Its presence in food for human consumption and animal feed is ubiquitous. Epidemiological studies have revealed a strong correlation between the increasing incidence in the United States of a large number of chronic diseases and the increased...

Glyphosate is the active ingredient in the pervasive herbicide, Roundup, and its usage, particularly in the United States, has increased dramatically in the last two decades, in step with the widespread adoption of Roundup®-Ready core crops. The World Health Organization recently labelled glyphosate as “probably carcinogenic.” In this paper, we rev...
Data
This data is of rare Haemangio-endotheliomas extracted from a 2-year chronic feeding study of glyphosate technical acid in mice submitted to the US EPA. Study title: "A chronic feeding study of Glyphosate (Roundup technical) in mice" Knezevich & Hogan (1983) unpublished study #BDN-77420 Bio/Dynamics for Monsanto
Data
Data on malignant lymphomas found in female rats of a 2-year study conducted by Lankas and Hogan in 1981. Malignant lymphomas were only found in Glyphosate treated animals. Control animals had no lymphomas. See reference 17 in Glyphosate, pathways to modern diseases IV: cancer and related pathologies for full data set from this study for other neop...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
In consideration of the “universal nonspecific mesenchymal reaction”, also referred to as the Sanarelli-Shwartzman phenomenon, we raise the question: how can the SULTs (sulfotransferases) and PAPS molecules assemble and perform the multitude of sulfation reactions required to produce all of the many posttranslational modifications of mucopolysaccha...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
We propose that the Ascorbate radical and its 2-O-substituted-L-ascorbate radicals provide lifelong modulators of redox kinetics and universal group transfer catalysts in inflamed tissue during the Sanarelli-Shwartzman Phenomenon, DIC syndrome, cancer, sepsis, neurodevelopment, and atherosclerosis. We propose that the Ascorbate radical is capable o...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
A new hypothesis as to the organizational basis of cells, organism, and nervous system - the “fractal dimension” - is presented. Alteration in biological water dynamics likely precedes the onset of inflammation, maternal immune activation, and IL-6 elevations, in autism. Exogenous interfacial water stress (EIWS) leads to concomitant disruption of m...
Article
Full-text available
Despite a vast literature, atherosclerosis and the associated ischemia/reperfusion injuries remain today in many ways a mystery. Why do atheromatous plaques make and store a supply of cholesterol and sulfate within the major arteries supplying the heart? Why are treatment programs aimed to suppress certain myocardial infarction risk factors, such a...
Article
Full-text available
Manganese (Mn) is an often overlooked but important nutrient, required in small amounts for multiple essential functions in the body. A recent study on cows fed genetically modified Roundup-Ready feed revealed a severe depletion of serum Mn. Glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup , has also been shown to severely deplete Mn levels in plants....

A recent study on cows fed genetically modified Roundup®‐Ready feed revealed a severe depletion of serum Mn. Glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup®, has also been shown to severely deplete Mn levels in plants....

ABSTRACT Celiac disease, and, more generally, gluten intolerance, is a growing problem worldwide, but especially in North America and Europe, where an estimated 5% of the population now suffers from it. Symptoms include nausea, diarrhea, skin rashes, macrocytic anemia and depression. It is a multifactorial disease associated with numerous nutrition...

Glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup ® , is the most popular herbicide used worldwide. The industry asserts it is minimally toxic to humans, but here we argue otherwise. Residues are found in the main foods of the Western diet, comprised primarily of sugar, corn, soy and wheat. Glyphosate's inhibition of cytochrome P450 (CYP) enzymes is an...

What is the chemical biological and biophysical process to explain coherent biological signalling on multiple scales of time and space, in vivo? For example, how does regiospecificity in both time and space arise, in posttranslational modifications of proteins? If the processes iare fractal, from what does the "fractal dimension" arise?
