Gluten intolerance or glyphosate?
Is it gluten intolerance or glyphosate? Firstly, gluten intolerance has been found to occur in only 3% of the patients diagnosed with it. So what about the rest?
The scientifically sound – but small – study found that gluten-containing diets can cause gastrointestinal distress in people without celiac disease, a well-known autoimmune disorder triggered by gluten. They called this non-celiac gluten sensitivity. Ref
“Although experts estimate that only 1 percent of Americans – about 3 million people – actually suffer from celiac disease, 18 percent of adults now buy gluten-free foods.
People with celiac disease have a 2x greater risk of developing coronary artery disease, and a 4x greater risk of developing small bowel cancers.
Untreated celiac disease can lead to the development of other autoimmune disorders like Type I diabetes and multiple sclerosis (MS), and many other conditions, including dermatitis herpetiformis (an itchy skin rash), anemia, osteoporosis, infertility and miscarriage, neurological conditions like epilepsy and migraines, short stature, heart disease and intestinal cancers.” Ref
Gluten Intolerance or glyphosate?
So back to the question, gluten intolerance or glyphosate?
Evidence suggests that the reality is 97% of those who are incorrectly diagnosed as Gluten intolerant are reacting to Glyphosate instead.
“Did you know that almost all the food is contaminated with glyphosate? Almost all food is contaminated with glyphosate as found in the roundup weed killer.
The symptoms of so-called “gluten intolerance” and celiac disease in are shockingly similar to the symptoms in lab animals exposed to glyphosate, argue the study’s authors Anthony Samsel, an independent scientist who’s served as a consultant to the EPA on arsenic pollution and to the U.S. Coast Guard on chemical hazard response, and Stephanie Seneff, a senior research scientist at MIT.
They point to a recent study on how glyphosate affects the digestive systems of fish. It decreased digestive enzymes and bacteria, disrupted mucosal folds, destroyed microvilli structure in the intestinal wall, and increased secretion of mucin.” Ref
“These features are highly reminiscent of celiac disease,” Samsel and Seneff write.
Why do people think it is glyphosate and not gluten that is the main culprit?
Here are two reasons, however, there are many others.
- “Celiac disease is associated with imbalances in gut bacteria that can be fully explained by the known effects of glyphosate on gut bacteria.”
- “Celiac disease is associated with the impairment of cytochrome P450 enzymes. Glyphosate is known to inhibit cytochrome P450 enzymes.”
With an estimated 6.1 billion kilograms applied worldwide over the last decade, understanding its risk to farmworkers, consumers, and the environment is paramount.
Glyphosate, the active ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide — identified as a probable human carcinogen by the International Agency for Research on Cancer in 2015 — is the most heavily used agricultural chemical in history.
One of the world’s most potentially deadly carcinogen is found in most food.
So it seems we need to go glyphosate-free, not gluten-free.
Organic food is important, especially when it comes to grains and animals who eat those grains. They are highly contaminated with glyphosate.
Since the gut may be damaged by glyphosate it would make sense to go gluten-free for a while. See if you notice a difference and give your gut a chance to heal.
Twenty-one oat-based cereal and snack products popular with children contain traces of glyphosate, the active ingredient in most weed killers.
Roundup, according to tests from the Environmental Working Group. EWG said the tests found glyphosate levels above what it considers safe for children in all but four of the products. Ref
A 2016 study revealed use of glyphosate rose by about 15X’s more between 1996 and 2014!
The glyphosate market is predicted to continue growing, potentially doubling by 2021, from the current $5 billion per year to as much as $10 billion.
It is abundant in almost foods from breakfast cereals to gourmet fruits and vegetables. No one seems to have an answer for its contamination accumulating in food.
So what can you do to protect yourself?
According to Tom Mower, Sisel products may well be “the cavalry to rescue”
Sisel does have some tremendously powerful, ingredient-based formulations with the immense potential power, to support the removal of Glyphosates from fruits and vegetables and especially in support of the body’s system needs for neutralizing, removing and circumventing the tremendous harm Glyphosates pose to human health … from the fetus to babies to adults.
- The H2 STIX – Diatomic Hydrogen Water shows great promise and potential. In our opinion this is a antioxidant with unparalleled power and effectiveness. H2 hypothetically will powerfully react with the oxidizing effects of Glyphosate.
- OrganiCleanse – could solubilize and remove Glyphosates from fruits and vegetables if soaked in it and rinsed thoroughly.
- Body Shield and SpectraMaxx – loaded with Organic Fulvic Acid. Has potentially powerful effects against free radicals in particular the most aggressive ones such as radiation particles and strong oxidizers, Sisel fervently believes.
