Soil, Plant And Human Health Effects Of Glyphosate

March 24 @ 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm

The Institute Of Sustainable Nutrition (TIOSN), is grateful for the unique opportunity to bring two world-class research scientists to our community to present information about the effects of Roundup and it’s active ingredient, glyphosate.
Dr. Don M. Huber, Professor Emeritus, Plant Pathology, Purdue University and Dr. Stephanie Seneff, Senior Research Scientist at the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) will present information about the environmental and health effects of glyphosate. A question and answer session will follow their presentations.
Glyphosate is the most widely used herbicide in the world. Countries worldwide are discussing its detrimental effects on the environment and human health. Some countries have banned its use.
Dr. Huber is an internationally recognized researcher and speaker on this subject. With decades of work in the crop fields of America and the laboratories of prestigious institutions, he is an expert on the complex subject of the interactions between agriculture practices and plant soil health. He continues to submit research papers and inform government agencies around the world about the effects of this herbicide and GMOs. Don Huber is a seminal contributor of information on these important topics.
Dr. Seneff has a degree in biophysics, PhD’s in electrical engineering and computer science. For over three decades her research has been at the intersection of biology and computation. In recent years, Dr. Seneff has focused her research interests back towards biology, concentrating mainly on the relationship between nutrition and health. Since 2011, she has published over two-dozen papers in various medical and health-related journals on topics such as modern day diseases (e.g., Alzheimer, autism, cardiovascular diseases), and the impact of nutritional deficiencies and environmental toxins on human health. She is a highly sought-after international speaker on these subjects.
