Is Monsanto the reason for gluten allergies

Print Friendly

gluten-wheat(NaturalHealth365) The incidence of celiac disease has increased at alarming rates around the globe, particularly in North America and Europe, where it’s estimated as much as 5 percent of the population suffers from the disease today. Those continents are also where chemical giant Monsanto has been most successful in selling the weed killer glyphosate, marketed by farm chemical giant Monsanto under the trade name Roundup, to farmer and backyard gardener alike.

Scientists now believe those two factors are no coincidence. As published in the journal Interdisciplinary Toxicology, researchers note that glyphosate has long been linked to the cancer non-Hodgkin lymphoma. But further study reveals the deadly chemical is almost certainly behind the surge in celiac disease cases due to its widespread use as a drying agent just prior to harvest on wheat and barley fields.

The dangers of glyphosate are well-documented

Reviewing the many ills associated with glyphosate will leave you wondering how this deadly chemical could possibly come in contact with food and feed meant for consumption. But unfortunately, its use is more common than not. Conventional farmers routinely spray fields of wheat and barley about a week before harvest with glyphosate, relying on the chemical as a drying agent. This is in addition to its use for weed control earlier in the growing cycle.

New England researchers documented findings in the journal Interdisciplinary Toxicology that reveal glyphosate is known to deplete the body of four amino acids. Those same four amino acids are known to be deficient in those suffering from celiac disease. Plus, patients suffering from celiac disease also have an increased risk of non-Hodgkin lymphoma, which health officials at the United Nations have already linked to glyphosate.

Glyphosate is also associated with reproductive problems often experienced by those suffering from celiac disease, such as infertility, miscarriages, and birth defects. Again, the practice of spraying glyphosate just prior to harvest has increased levels of residual glyphosate on wheat and related crops. The New England researchers add that the increasingly common practice of ripening sugar cane by applying glyphosate could explain a sharp increase in kidney failure found in agricultural workers in Central America.

The real culprit behind disease

While mounting evidence points to glyphosate as the culprit behind conditions involving a gluten allergy or intolerance, the U.S. remains apart from countries doing something to ban, or at least restrict, the use of this deadly chemical. Germany, France and Switzerland have joined with Colombia and Sri Lanka, among others, in the movement to halt the sale and use glyphosate.

Although glyphosate’s use throughout the growing season, culminating in its application as a drying agent just before harvest, may save farmers a few dollars, the real cost comes in the devastating effects it has on human health. The upswing in incidences of celiac disease, along with non-Hodgkin lymphoma, should serve as clear and ominous warning of the need to follow the lead of other nations in the world in banning this chemical.

  • I first learned about glyphosate ten years ago when my whole family was sick and I did not know what was killing us. Then I read a blog of a lady who had the same symptoms as I. By process of elimination, she found it was the corn. She then found out it had been genetically modified. By removing GMOs from her diet, she recovered. By removing GMOs from my diet I recovered. I told my dad and he recovered. To late to save my oldest son who died. RoundUp Ready foods are designed to grow with a nutrient deficient environment caused by glyphosate. Because glyphosate locks up the chrome needed to activate insulin, we have insulin resistance, i.e. type 2 diabetes. Because glyphosate locks up cobalt our body cannot make vitamin B-12 that governs cell division and growth resulting in infertility, miscarriage, anemia and Alzheimer’s. Because glyphosate locks up magnesium, manganese, zinc and other essential nutrients, we have a compromised immune system. When we also drink fluoridated water, the fluoride displaces iodine and the glyphosate prevents its replacement. Iodine is absolutely essential for our body’s defense against the invading organisms that trigger cancer.

    By eating non-GMO, for eight years we had been relatively healthy. But last year, we were again all sick. My wife almost died. Her gut had been essentially destroyed. Probably by the combination of the fluorosilicic acid added to our water and glyphosate now added to wheat. She started eating gluten free bread that just happened to be glyphosate free. Eventually we bought a fluoride filter. I called the maker of the bread we were eating earlier that year and asked if there was glyphosate in the wheat they bought. We were referred to the manager who said that all the wheat they bought met all Federal Requirements. I then knew what the problem was. I bought some organic wheat bread and we found out that it did not make her sick. It seems the gluten is not the problem, but the combination of fluoride in the water and glyphosate in food can destroy the gut and thus cause the same symptoms as Celiac Disease. It has been a year and my wife is recovering. It takes a long time to repair the damage. I strongly suggest you watch the following video of Jeffrey Smith Interview with Zach Bush “Protecting your gut from Roundup” .

    Pure POISON! FDA approved.. thank God for that aye? It cant be a bad thing if the FDA gives it a double thumbs up..and vacinations are safe for our bodies too I suppose…WAKE UP PEOPLE. May they and everyone who defends them rot in hel

    Gluten may hurt, but blood tests/biospies may not work to prove Celiac. Whole family trees may be Celiac and each generation may get worse in health and spread the Celiac to the next generation. GMO corn/antibiotics may also hurt the gut lining in addition to gluten. Roundup may hurt the good bacteria in the large intestines. No gluten/dairy/soy/sugar/GMO…vitamins/good oils/minerals/probiotic…LDN..detoxing may help. Wheat/gluten issues are not just due to Roundup…have been here before in family trees before Roundup started.

    I had read a while back that glyphosate (Monsanto’s RoundUp) has been used by some irresponsible farmer’s for about 20 or 30 years now. In addition to use just prior to Wheat harvest, they are now using it on Yams and Sweet Potatoes, and possibly Beets and Onions. Welcome to America, the slow-kill country.
    RoundUp is sold in Home Depot where I live. I complained to the Manager that his product RoundUp may be responsible for the death of Bee Colonies in America, but he didn’t care one iota.
