Manganese (Mn) is an often overlooked but important nutrient, required in small amounts for multiple essential functions in the body. A recent study on cows fed genetically modified Roundup®-Ready feed revealed a severe depletion of serum Mn. Glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup®, has also been shown to severely deplete Mn levels in plants. Here, we investigate the impact of Mn on physiology, and its association with gut dysbiosis as well as neuropathologies such as autism, Alzheimer's… Expand
Does Glyphosate Acting as a Glycine Analogue Contribute To ALS
TLDR
It is proposed that glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup®, plays a role in ALS, mainly through mistakenly substituting for glycine during protein synthesis, disruption of mineral homeostasis as well as setting up a state of dysbiosis. Expand
GUT MICROBIOTA AND NEUROLOGICAL EFFECTS OF GLYPHOSATE.
TLDR
The impact of Gly-induced intestinal dysbiosis on the central nervous system is reviewed, focusing on emotional, neurological and neurodegenerative disorders, including highlighting genetic abnormalities, pregnancy-associated problems, diet, infections, vaccines and heavy metals. Expand
Sodium selenate regulates the brain ionome in a transgenic mouse model of Alzheimer’s disease
TLDR
A multi-time-point ionome analysis was carried out to investigate the interactions among 15 elements in the brain by using a triple-transgenic mouse model of AD with/without high-dose sodium selenate supplementation, implying a highly complex and dynamic crosstalk between selenium and other elements during long-term supplementation with selenates. Expand
Glyphosate pathways to modern diseases VI: Prions, amyloidoses and autoimmune neurological diseases
TLDR
It is proposed that myelin basic protein (MBP) and other proteins constituting the myelin sheath are attacked by the immune system in both autism and MS, which are considered to be autoimmune diseases. Expand
Glyphosate Induces Metaphase II Oocyte Deterioration and Embryo Damage by Zinc Depletion and Overproduction of Reactive Oxygen Species.
TLDR
This work shows for the first time that glyphosate exposure impairs metaphase II mouse oocyte quality via two mechanisms: disruption of the microtubule organizing center and chromosomes such as anomalous pericentrin formation, spindle fiber destruction and disappearance, and defective chromosomal alignment and substantial depletion of intracellular zinc bioavailability and enhancement of reactive oxygen species accumulation.

Glyphosate-based herbicides: evidence of immune-endocrine-microbiome alteration
TLDR
This chapter aims to describe the possible correlation between GBH exposure and immune-endocrine alterations, and suggest that GBHs should be considered endocrine-disrupting compounds with effects on sex and thyroid hormones. Expand
Glyphosate pathways to modern diseases V : Amino acid analogue of glycine in diverse proteins
While it might be expected that fidelity is always perfect in mapping from the DNA triple code to the specific amino acid it codes for, multiple studies have shown that this is not the case [1–5]. InExpand
Glyphosate-based herbicide impairs energy metabolism and increases autophagy in C6 astroglioma cell line
TLDR
The results showed that 24 h exposure to a glyphosate-based herbicide decreased cell viability, activities of mitochondrial respiratory chain enzymes and creatine kinase, and mitochondrial mass in rat astroglioma cell line (C6 cells), however, non-protein thiol (NPSH) levels were increased but catalase activity was not changed in cells exposed to the herbicide at non-cytotoxic concentrations. Expand
Glyphosate-based herbicides: Evidence of immune-endocrine alteration.
TLDR
It is suggested that GBHs have endocrine disrupting potentiality targeting sex and thyroid hormones, although its relevance for humans will require further investigations, and a critical analysis of emerging evidence of G toxicity is required to better characterize its safety profile. Expand
Additional observations regarding glyphosate-based herbicides and developmental toxicity
TLDR
Concerns are raised with the conclusions regarding the cause of the observed outcomes and the conclusion that maternal exposure to high levels of a glyphosate-based herbicide played a direct role in the etiology of autism-like behaviors among offspring. Expand

It is shown how interference with CYP enzymes acts synergistically with disruption of the biosynthesis of aromatic amino acids by gut bacteria, as well as impairment in serum sulfate transport, which results in the disruption of homeostasis by environmental toxins. Expand

Is Encephalopathy a Mechanism to Renew Sulfate in Autism?
TLDR
It is argued that impaired synthesis of cholesterol sulfate in the skin and red blood cells, catalyzed by sunlight and nitric oxide synthase enzymes, creates a state of colloidal instability in the blood manifested as a low zeta potential and increased interfacial stress. Expand

TLDR
Significant mitochondrial dysfunction occurs early in AD pathogenesis in a female AD mouse model and provides a plausible mechanistic rationale for the hypometabolism in brain that precedes AD diagnosis and suggests therapeutic targets for prevention of AD. Expand
