Ever wonder why you can eat bread without issue while traveling in Europe, but when eating wheat products in North America, you feel some “gluten intolerance symptoms”?
Gluten intolerance is a growing problem in North America. And various research has shown that glyphosate is the most important causal factor in this epidemic. 27 countries ban or restrict its use. However, Canada and the United States are not among them.
WHAT IS GLYPHOSATE?
Glyphosate is an herbicide that is the most widely used herbicides in Canada and the United States. It is found in “Roundup”, a product originally created by Monsanto Company. 👿
The company also produces Roundup-ready seed genetically modified to resist glyphosate, allowing farmers to kill weeds without affecting their crops. So, now only are our wheat fields being sprayed with this toxin, but our wheat is genetically modified (GMO) to withstand the toxins being used on it. DOUBLE BAD!! 😞 😞
The weed killer is the subject of hot debate in the scientific community. Published in the journal Interdisciplinary Toxicology, one meta-analysis of nearly 300 studies showed that glyphosate is directly linked to celiac disease and gluten intolerance.
The number of people diagnosed with gluten intolerance and celiac disease has risen in tandem with the increased use of glyphosate in agriculture. Further to this, the researchers make the following points:
“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.”
“Deficiencies in iron, cobalt, copper and other rare metals associated with celiac disease can be attributed to glyphosate’s ability to chelate these elements.”
“Fish exposed to glyphosate develop digestive problems that are like celiac disease.
✅ Moral of the story? We need to go glyphosate-free, not gluten-free. And that means going organic, especially when it comes to grains and animals who eat those grains.
