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… 

Figures from this paper

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.
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.
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.
Glyphosate-based herbicides: evidence of immune-endocrine-microbiome alteration
Glyphosate pathways to modern diseases V : Amino acid analogue of glycine in diverse proteins
TLDR
Certain structural analogues of the protein amino acids can escape detection by the cellular machinery for protein synthesis and become misincorporated into the growing polypeptide chain of proteins to generate nonnative proteins.
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.
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.

Glyphosate, pathways to modern diseases II: Celiac sprue and gluten intolerance
TLDR
It is proposed that glyphosate, the active ingredient in the herbicide, Roundup®, is the most important causal factor in this epidemic of celiac disease and a plea to governments to reconsider policies regarding the safety of glyphosate residues in foods is made.

Glyphosate's Suppression of Cytochrome P450 Enzymes and Amino Acid Biosynthesis by the Gut Microbiome: Pathways to Modern Diseases
TLDR
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.

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.
Mitochondrial bioenergetic deficit precedes Alzheimer's pathology in female mouse model of Alzheimer's disease
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.
