Glyphosate could be the largest risk factor for celiac disease
(NaturalHealth365) Celiac disease, also known as gluten intolerance, is increasing in prevalence in the United States and Europe. A study by Interdisciplinary Toxicology estimates that about five percent of the population of the western world now has it. Gluten intolerance can cause a variety of symptoms in those who have it, including diarrhea, anemia, nausea, and even depression.
When allowed to go untreated and the affected person continues to consume gluten, Celiac disease can also lead to reproductive problems, digestive problems, nutritional deficiencies, thyroid issues plus a wide variety of inflammatory health issues. Wheat, rye and barley – which are the main source of dietary gluten – have been consumed for thousands of years with little to no problem among humans. So, why is gluten such a problem now?
Gluten sensitivity seems to be a growing threat due to the excessive use of glyphosate (and other toxic substances) in the growing and harvesting of wheat.
In fact, we’ve been told that many farmers actually put glyphosate on the wheat crops just before harvest time. This relatively ‘new’ way of drying the wheat – before harvesting to make it easier for the farmer – increases our exposure to dangerous chemicals.
How does glyphosate increase the likelihood of gluten sensitivity?
Glyphosate is the main ingredient in the chemical weed killer known as Roundup. Roundup sticks to the wheat that it’s sprayed on, even though the process of turning it into flour and other food items. Of course, chemical companies want us to believe that this is all nonsense and there’s nothing to worry about with all these chemicals used on our food supply.
Yet, we know, when humans are exposed to Roundup – either on the skin or through ingesting it on wheat or other foods – it can cause an imbalance in the good flora in the digestive tract. This imbalance is the precursor to a lot of health issues, including those associated with celiac disease.
To be more scientific and to gain a better understanding about the dangers of glyphosate – check out the work of Stephanie Seneff, a Senior Research Scientist at the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory.
Animal studies prove the link between Roundup and celiac disease
Fish who have been exposed to Roundup show the same signs and symptoms of glyphosate toxicity as humans. They develop digestive problems and an imbalance in the flora of their digestive tracts.
In addition, they develop vitamin deficiencies, as well as deficiencies in some minerals, as Roundup chelate them out of the body. These are all identical to symptoms humans with celiac disease can experience when they eat wheat or any other food with gluten in it. Quite frankly, some experts like Dr. Thomas O’Bryan suggest that, ‘all humans are affected (in a negative way) by the consumption of gluten foods.’
Celiac disease is more than just an inability to digest gluten properly
People with Celiac disease are more prone to certain types of cancer, miscarriages and birth defects when they get pregnant, kidney problems, and may even need fertility treatments to get pregnant. Naturally, other factors play a role in digestive issues including, oral infections and the consumption of GMOs. But, this highly-toxic herbicide can’t be good for our intestinal health.
Thankfully, people are waking up to the dangers of conventional farming practices and moving toward better quality foods, locally grown.
On top of that, there has been a worldwide call for banning the use of Roundup on food crops. For example, Roundup shows up regularly in samples of bread from stores in the United Kingdom. The Netherlands has already banned the use of Roundup and France seems like it will follow suit, while other European countries and the United States are taking the matter into consideration.
Simply put, until Roundup is banned worldwide, the incidences of glyphosate toxicity are likely to continue to increase, causing a variety of problematic health issues for those affected. If you suffer from digestive problems, take a good look at your diet and seek the help of a qualified healthcare provider to assist in the healing process.
