Covid-19, Roundup, Drugs and the Environment


Since the beginning of the Covid situation, I’ve been treating it as a holistic issue. I’ve been making the connection to the immune crisis, and the environmental toxins crisis — the ground of the environment, rather than the figure of the novel coronavirus.

This week I have a special edition of Planet Waves FM, consisting of an interview with an MIT researcher and a journalist who are investigating environmental connections to Covid-19. They’ve been looking into the glyphosate (Monsanto’s Roundup) problem for many years. (So have several Planet Waves writers, including Carol van Strum.)

(For background, here is my Feb. 11 Planet Waves TV on this topic — more than two long months ago. And here is our interview with Juror #4 on the first jury to ever hold Monsanto liable for Roundup.)

Stephanie Seneff, Senior Research Scientist at MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory

Stephanie Seneff, Ph.D. is a Senior Research Scientist at MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory in Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA. She has a BS degree from MIT in biology and a PhD from MIT in electrical engineering and computer science. Her recent interests have focused on the role of toxic chemicals and micronutrient deficiencies in health and disease, with a special emphasis on the pervasive herbicide, Roundup, and the mineral, sulfur. She has authored over 30 peer-reviewed journal papers over the past few years on these topics.

Jennifer Margulis, Ph.D. is an award-winning journalist, Fulbright grantee, and sought-after speaker. She is the author of Your Baby, Your Way: Taking Charge of Your Pregnancy, Childbirth, and Parenting Decisions for a Happier, Healthier Family and co-author, with Dr. Paul Thomas, of The Vaccine-Friendly Plan. She has been researching and writing about health-related issues for over 15 years. She has worked on a child survival campaign in West Africa, taught literature classes to non-traditional students in Atlanta, and appeared live on prime-time television in France.

This article is Dr. Seneff’s proposal for connecting glyphosate to Covid, which we have reviewed. We consider this article a starting point and would like to see more specific empirical data to back up the theory.

Here is a collection of articles on the connection between human health and glyphosate.
