Publisher's Summary

From an MIT scientist, mounting evidence that the active ingredient in the world’s most commonly used weedkiller is responsible for debilitating chronic diseases, including cancer, liver disease, and more

Glyphosate is the active ingredient in Roundup, the most commonly used weedkiller in the world. Nearly 300 million pounds of glyphosate-based herbicide are sprayed on farms - and food - every year.

Agrochemical companies claim that glyphosate is safe for humans, animals, and the environment. But emerging scientific research on glyphosate’s deadly disruption of the gut microbiome, its crippling effect on protein synthesis, and its impact on the body’s ability to use and transport sulfur - not to mention several landmark legal cases - tells a very different story.

In Toxic Legacy, senior research scientist Stephanie Seneff, PhD, delivers compelling evidence based on countless published, peer-reviewed studies - all in frank, illuminating, and always accessible language.

Throughout Toxic Legacy, listeners will discover:

  • The uniquely toxic nature of glyphosate
  • How glyphosate disrupts the microbiome, leading to gut dysbiosis, autoimmunity, neurodegeneration, and more
  • Why we’re seeing a rise in non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, infertility, depression, and anxiety
  • Glyphosate’s role in soil degeneration, water contamination, and threats to wildlife and biodiversity
  • Important nutritional guidance for conscientious consumers who want to avoid glyphosate-contaminated foods and improve their health

As Rachel Carson did with DDT in the 1960s, Stephanie Seneff sounds the alarm on glyphosate, giving you guidance on simple, powerful changes you can make right now and essential information you need to protect your health, your family’s health, and the planet on which we all depend.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

What the critics say

Toxic Legacy will stand shoulder to shoulder with Rachel Carson’s Silent Spring. [This is] unquestionably, one of the most important books of our time.” (David Perlmutter, MD, number one New York Times best-selling author of Grain Brain and Brain Wash)

“Urgent and eye-opening, the book serves as a loud-and-clear alarm.” (The Boston Globe

“A game-changer that we would be foolish to ignore.” (Kirkus Reviews, starred)

Path to deep understanding on Round Up.

Most everyone knows that Round Up is not good for us, but why? Dr Seneff provide a thorough explanation — with consist reference to peer reviewed scientific studies. The author describes the history behind Round Up — from patented antibiotic to patented industrial use to pervasive patented use in agriculture. I found her explanation of the body’s immune system and Round Up’s impact upon it particular enlightening. I would recommend this book to scientifically minded people who want to better understand the ‘why’ behind the existence of so many chronic conditions today. The author builds a convincing case for concern — and will motivate you to spend the extra needed to avoid consuming cheap food laced with Round Up or living/working with this toxic chemical. Jill Smith did a wonderful job narrating through explanations interwoven with technical terms. My five star rating reflects that I wanted to return to listening to this book every moment that I could.

Required reading for our generation

People need to understand the full ramifications of this toxic chemical that has pervaded everything. She is the Rachel Carson of our generation. Glyphosate is undeniably a harmful toxin and if you buy things that have it aka Doritos, Cheerios, etc, you are supporting the money machine that is polluting our ecosystem with glyphosate.

Great information

There is so much science in this book. It is absolutely amazing and fascinating. I’ll listen again to absorb more details. This is the book that I have been waiting for to explain how glyphosate enters the body and Substitutes itself for glycine in the foods we eat. I think that physicians and nurses should read this book, because it would help them understand and diagnose problems relating to consuming foods that contain glyphosate because of our agricultural system.

Ban this crap

Well researched and persuasive evidence that Glyphosate should be banned and needs to be out of our food, water, and air. The USA is way behind the rest of the world. $$$ again over health and real science.

Life changing

This book takes the complex science and makes it easy to understand. It is a needed telling of what is happening behind the scenes and behind the science, telling what is happening and been happening over the decades between our health and big industry.

Science Heavy

Really hard to follow. There is A LOT of science and unless you are familiar with the terms it's hard to listen to. I couldn't finish the book, waste of money.
