MIT Researcher: Glyphosate Herbicide will Cause Half of All Children to Have Autism by 2025

"...the side effects of autism closely mimic those of glyphosate toxicity, and presented data showing a remarkably consistent correlation between the use of Roundup on crops (and the creation of Roundup-ready GMO crop seeds) with rising rates of autism."

"The USDA added, however, that due to “cost concerns,” it did not test for residues of glyphosate. Let’s repeat that: they never tested for the active ingredient in the most widely used herbicide in the world. “Cost concerns”? How absurd—unless they mean it will cost them too much in terms of the special relationship between the USDA and Monsanto. You may recall the revolving door between Monsanto and the federal government, with agency officials becoming high-paying executives—and vice versa! Money, power, prestige: it’s all there. Monsanto and the USDA love to scratch each others’ backs. Clearly this omission was purposeful." For over three decades, Stephanie Seneff, PhD, has researched biology and technology, over the years publishing over 170 scholarly peer-reviewed articles. In recent years she has concentrated on the relationship between nutrition and health, tackling such topics as Alzheimer’s, autism, and cardiov...


Help your children process emotions and find inner balance with their yoga and meditation practices. It happens all by itself. No pressure to be anyone except themselves. 09/06/2018

More than just a game: Yoga for school-age children - Harvard Health Blog

An article I was interviewed for in 2016. Still relevant today. Thought I'd share again for my new Los Angeles followers! More research has shown that yoga has a number of physical and psychological benefits for children, and many schools now integrate yoga into a typical day.


The younger one begins practice, the younger one remains in their heart. “Yoga is the journey of the self, through the self, to the self.” -The Bhagavad Gita


Children believe in magic. Santa Claus, The Easter Bunny, Tooth Fairy... If they begin meditating at a young age think of all the possibilities they could create inside of their boundless minds. They can make anything happen. We need to nourish and believe in the strength of their minds.

The strength and confidence yoga can give to kids is exponentially more powerful and long lasting than what it gives to us adults. They carry this knowledge/ with no inhibitions/ through the rest of their lives. Imagine?


“Bhakti is love- loving God, loving your own Self, and loving all beings. The small heart should become bigger, and bigger, and bigger and, eventually, totally expansive. A small spark can become a forest fire.” —Ammachi


Over the years and with life experience, we develop inhibitions and muscle memories of past injuries that scare us into believing we can’t accomplish certain things. Well, first- that voice in your head is a liar. We can work hard and commit to learning whatever we want. But what we can also do is give our children the gift of believing that they can accomplish whatever they set their minds to! Children’s minds are free and open to believe in magic. Encourage that!


Be playful.


Timeline Photos


Turn off the screens and put down your phones for just a few minutes each day. Close your eyes, relax your bodies and just breathe.


The minute our babies enter into this world, their conscious experience of this lifetime begins. Muscle memories develop. Personalities begin. Their individual sense of understanding of how this universe works. And it’s hectic. It’s hectic for them. It’s even more hectic for you. Parenting is HARD. The pressure is on. But each day there is always at least one moment that you can give to yourself and your little one. A quiet moment of intention. In that moment, offer a massage to your baby. Move their little tiny bodies and talk to them. Explain what you’re doing so that they can get a better understanding of how their tiny new bodies were designed. They will understand you! Maybe that will ease some of the pressure and challenges you’re both facing during the rest of each and every single day. Give that time to yourselves. #parentingishard
