Stephanie Seneff is the MIT doctor who claims that autism will “afflict 50% of American children by 2025.”
That’s right. In just eight more years, she claims, half of the kids in the United States will be autistic.
Is this about vaccines?
“Is there a toxic substance that is currently in our environment on the rise in step with increasing rates of Autism that could explain this?… The answer is yes, I’m quite sure that I’m right, and the answer is glyphosate.”
Stephanie Seneff, Ph.D.
Dr. Stephanie Seneff, with a Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, believes that exposure to glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup, is causing kids to become autistic.
How does she know?
Seneff has graphs that show a “Near exact match of tons of glyphosate applied to corn/soy versus number of children with autism as served under IDEA.”
Her critics, of which there are many, are quick to point that these types of correlations do not mean much without other evidence to help prove causation. They have graphs too, including one that correlates organic food sales with rates of autism.
She also published a widely discredited study claiming that glyphosate can be found in breastmilk.
“You wake up someday with something like Crohn’s disease, or Alzheimer’s, or Parkinson’s disease, or rheumatoid arthritis. All these things you don’t want that you’re going to get if you keep on chronically exposing yourself to glyphosate.”

But it isn’t just autism.
Seneff also claims that glyphosate exposure causes arthritis, concussions, Celiac disease, food allergies, Parkinsons, and Alzheimers.
“I believe that glyphosate may be a contributor to all the – this epidemic that we have in school shootings and the thing that just happened in Boston (the Boston Bombing).”
Jeffrey Smith interview with Stephanie Seneff
Yes. Dr. Stephanie Seneff, the Senior Research Scientist at the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, thinks that school shootings and terrorism attacks are caused by the herbicide Roundup.
What’s the connection with vaccines? Another researcher claims to have found glyphosate in vaccines…
The other connection to vaccines? Dr. Seneff is on the Scientific Advisory Board of the Children’s Medical Safety Research Institute.
“First of all, I want to remind you that I am not an M.D. My doctorate from MIT is in electrical engineering. However, my PhD thesis concerned an auditory model for human speech processing, and thus required extensive reading on neural mechanisms in the brain. My Bachelor’s degree from MIT is in biology, with a minor in food and nutrition.”
Stephanie Seneff on Is ADHD Caused by Insufficient Dietary Fat?
Dr. Stephanie Seneff has also put her degrees in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science to work in coming up with theories that ADHD is caused by eating too many low fat foods, that autism is caused by a cholesterol/vitamin D deficiency syndrome because mothers eat too many low fat foods and use too much sunscreen (read her 2008 essay Sunscreen and Low-fat Diet: A Recipe for Disaster), sulfur deficiency causes obesity, and that a low fat diet and statin drugs (for high cholesterol) can cause Alzheimer’s.
Why have you never heard about sulfur deficiency before?
Because it doesn’t happen.
“In living organisms, sulfur is found mainly in organic molecules. Humans obtain it by absorbing the sulfur-containing amino acids methionine, cysteine, and cystine. Thus it is automatically obtained by consuming adequate amounts of protein foods (meat, fish, poultry, eggs, milk, cheese, nuts, and legumes) and requires no separate consideration. ”

Mother cows also don’t load “up the milk she feeds to her newborn calf with fats and vitamin D” as she claims. Well maybe fats, but like breast milk, cow milk is low in vitamin D. That’s why cow milk is fortified with vitamin D and another reason why drinking raw milk isn’t a good idea.
It should also be obvious that it isn’t a good idea to listen to anything that Stephanie Seneff has to say.
What To Know About Stephanie Seneff
Stephanie Seneff is a computer scientist from MIT who thinks that exposure to glyphosphate is causing everything from autism and Alzheimer’s to peanut allergies and Celiac disease. Interestingly, she had another theory that all of these things were caused by low fat diets and vitamin D deficiency before she got obsessed with glyphosate.

6 thoughts on “Who is Stephanie Seneff?”
So sales of organic foods are due to increased knowledge about autism rates due to GMO/glyphosate! Makes sense!
I have tremendous respect for the work Dr Seneff does and for the results of her research. She faces a lot of resistance from doctors and scientists who are not knowledgeable about current health epidemics. Thank you Dr. Seneff.
Q: Who wrote this article? A: Monsanto Ghost Writer.
It’s clear you have not read details of her research, results and reasoning and are using ignorance as if it were a scientific tool.
I think the writer needs to retake their bash piece 101 class. Miserable attempt to discredit. The fact that his dismal attempt at journalism appears at near the top of the food chain is telling as well.
Saying that raw milk is dangerous to drink because it doesn’t have vitamin D ( artificially added, along with other nutrients because pasteurization kills them ) is a kookier and less evidenced claim than Seneff would make.
BTW, milk, at best contains a tiny fraction of one’s vitamin D needs..
Also, this article didn’t age well, did it? Roundup is slowly being pulled off the market due to a large amount of people with non-hodgkins lymphoma that developed 10-15 years after chronic exposure by people spraying it.. and we still haven’t bothered to study what lower grade exposure does in the long run.
Seneff may have some wild claims on glyphosate that aren’t well supported, but i think she is closer to being on the money than the author here.
