The article reports that Monsanto has denied any link between its herbicide Roundup and Parkinson's, autism, infertility and cancers. A peer-reviewed study published in the journal "Entropy," showed that residues of glyphosate found in food may contribute to a host of conditions. Stephanie Seneff, co-author of the study, explains that the residues enhance the damaging effects of other food-borne chemical residues and environmental toxins.
