Public Lecture Recording: “Glyphosate, Sulfate Deficiency & Degenerative Diseases“
An extraordinary speaker, researcher, scientist and advocate for human health, Dr. Stephanie Seneff will share important insights about significant environmental toxins that appear to be underlying many modern diseases, including Autism, heart disease and other neurological problems. Her talk will be approximately one hour, followed by an Expert Panel discussion and Q&A with health professionals, environmentalists, and senior government officials involved in science, research and policy. Registration details below.
Lecture Summary Description: Sulfate is an oxidized form of sulfur that plays a remarkably powerful role in many aspects of cellular metabolism and signaling. In this talk, you will learn how sulfate works in concert with sunlight and water to supply energy and clear cellular debris. Sulfate insufficiency, caused by environmental toxicants, in particular Glyphosate, is key to many modern debilitating diseases, including autism and heart disease.

Thank you to our generous sponsors for their support to help get this message out to as many people as possible!
This lecture was inspired to honor the memories of our friends John Balatinecz and Dr. Shiv Chopra, who have both passed away since our last lecture with Dr. Stephanie Seneff in April 2016. We are grateful for their leadership and tireless work to educate the public on the dangers lurking in our food supply, and the increasing scientific research about the long-term health and environmental effects from GMO foods and other crops sprayed with glyphosate and other agri-chemicals. It was their mission to affect change in regulation and policies, to prioritize the health of humans, animals and our environment above corporate profit.
Dr. Shiv Chopra wrote “Corrupt to the Core” and founded the Canadian Council for Food Safety and Health, and the 5 Pillars for food safety. His courage, integrity and strong moral values helped protect Canadians from drugs that would have been harmful in our food supply chain, and despite standing up for what was right was dismissed from his job at Health Canada. He spent the last nearly 20 years speaking out about this injustice and fighting for our food safety rights, and to get his position at Health Canada reinstated. Sadly, his final court appearance last year to appeal the prior decision was lost.
Professor John Balatinecz was a warrior in his own right, with tremendous courage to speak the truth, and perseverance to bring awareness to the wrongs in this world about food safety. It is his legacy and the torch he carried the past several years that has illuminated the path for countless others to pursue better food safety and getting glyphosate banned. John was responsible for bringing Dr. Stephanie Seneff to Toronto in April 2016, and Steven Druker, author of Altered Genes, Twisted Truth, earlier the same year as part of his mission to provide public education on these issues.

Detailed Lecture Description
Sulfate deficiency is the most common nutritional deficiency you’ve never heard of. Sulfate is the fourth most abundant anion in our blood. It performs numerous biological functions, perhaps most important being its widespread presence in the extracellular matrix that surrounds most cells. The complex sugar chain, heparan sulfate, in the matrix, is a binding site for multiple signaling molecules that regulate cellular metabolism. Many biologically important molecules are sulfated in transit, and Dr. Seneff believes one of their essential roles is to transport sulfate. These include cholesterol, vitamin D, the sex hormones, the neurotransmitters, vitamin C, thyroid hormone and the aromatic amino acids, among others. In this presentation, Dr. Seneff will argue that sulfate deficiency is a key factor in heart disease and autism, and she will show how environmental toxicants, including mercury, aluminum and glyphosate, can disrupt sulfate homeostasis, leading to disease. Sulfate has magical effects on water to convert it into a crystal-like gel that can capture the energy in sunlight and store it in a battery. Through the mobilization of protons and electrons within structured water, the skin acts like a solar panel. Sunlight exposure to the skin leads to the synthesis of vitamin D sulfate and cholesterol sulfate, fueling muscles and nerve cells.
About the Event Organizers:
Advocates for Human and Environmental Health
Joel, Margaret and Melody are passionate about sharing the truth about toxins in our food supply and our environments. There is overwhelming evidence, from independent science, that these toxins are contributing to a host of health issues, such as, Autism, kidney disease, cancer, dementia, Alzheimer’s and many others. They believe that people have a right to know what’s in their food, personal care and household products. Their mission is to advocate for transparency and integrity with food and product manufacturers, agricultural organizations and government agencies which have collectively allowed the use of toxic pesticides, and thus poisoning humans, animals and our environment. They are supporters and activists with advocacy groups that help educate the public and pressure these organizations for change.
Melody Byblow is a Registered Holistic Nutritionist, Certified Master Workplace Wellness Consultant, and former marketing, product development and communications strategist. She is the owner of Holistic Wellness Advantage Inc. After recovery from her own serious health issues involving fibromyalgia, using holistic health practices, she became passionate about teaching others how to regain their health and vitality. She is well aware that toxins are at the root cause of most dis-ease and passionate about teaching others what this means. She helps people understand and apply methods on how to reduce toxin exposure, detoxify and rebuild digestion to improve health and vitality. She is a nutrition and holistic health coach, and designs Workplace Wellness Programs for organizations interested in increasing productivity by supporting employee health, reducing stress and creating a healthy workplace culture.
Margaret Sussmann came from a family where her father, a medical doctor, gave a high priority to education. She became an elementary school teacher and has frequently taught autistic and other special needs children. Due to serious illness and many years of navigating the healthcare system, she became interested in the causes of chronic diseases and the increasingly poor health of her students. Always engrossed in learning, she is constantly reading as well as following truth seeking websites. She is keen to know the real facts about major health issues, which are all too often obscured by mainstream media and their corporate overlords.
Joel Sussmann cares deeply for people and the planet Earth which we all call home. With his wife Margaret, he led the Newmarket March Against Monsanto for several years, educating people about the dangers of GMO’s and glyphosate. With their close friend, John Balatinecz, their passion was to remove toxins from the world’s food supply. Glyphosate, the active ingredient in Monsanto’s herbicide Roundup, tops this list. Joel believes that people should improve their health by rejuvenating their body. He feels the best route is so called “alternative” health professionals, such as naturopaths, chiropractors, homeopaths and holistic nutritionists, etc. Detoxifying the body and fixing the actual root causes of health imbalances or diseases, are his top priorities. He believes that the twin pillars of Informed Consent and Freedom of Choice are fundamental human rights and therefore non-negotiable.
As a dynamic duo, Joel and Margaret share interests in health, advocacy and seeking the truth. They are freedom fighters in many health related causes, especially the battle against medical tyranny.
