Dr. Stephanie Seneff
What Statins Really Are and Why They Don’t Work
Stephanie Seneff, PhD, is a Senior Research Scientist at MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory. She has a Bachelor’s degree from MIT in biology with a minor in food and nutrition, and her PhD from MIT is in computer science. Dr. Seneff is the first author of several recently published papers on theories proposing that dietary deficiencies in critical nutrients such as sulfur, taurine, zinc, cobalamin, choline, etc., as well as insufficient sun exposure, compounded by chronic exposure to multiple environmental toxins, can explain many modern diseases/conditions, such as autism, heart disease, obesity, asthma, gastrointestinal disorders, arthritis and Alzheimer’s disease. She has also spoken on these topics in several youtube videos as well as in radio interviews and at conferences on nutrition and health both in the U.S. and internationally.
