Wheat is quickly becoming a vicious allergen. You probably know someone who’s gluten intolerant, seeing as it’s one of the most common digestive disorders of our time.
And while celiac’s disease has been around for longer, the number of people sensitive to wheat has been increasing steadily in the last decade.
With more and more people being diagnosed, it’s bringing up some serious questions about how wheat is being grown.
Especially when gluten insensitive people eat wheat originating from other countries with little to no negative reaction.
How Wheat Is Grown In The USA
Other than being genetically modified, which can alter your body’s ability to recognize its nutrients, North American-grown wheat is laden with toxic herbicides and pesticides.
One of Monstanto’s most famous herbicides, called “Roundup” (gyphosphate) is the most commonly used chemical on wheat fields because it dries up the crop before harvest, forcing the plants to release their seeds .
his has been common practice for farmers in the USA, Canada, Great Britain and Germany for the last 10-15 years. The chemical is currently banned from many European countries but American politicians still don’t seemed too concerned about it’s effects on public health.
In 2012, at least 283.5 million pounds were sprayed on American farmlands, according to this U.S. Geological Survey.
Alarmingly, results from a German study shows that even people who have no direct contact with agriculture have significant concentrations of glyphosate in their urine.
What Does Glyphosphate Do?
Glyphosate has been linked to risk of fertility problems in women, such as infertility, miscarriages and birth defects. It’s also on the World Health Organization’s list of carcinogenic chemicals.
A 2009 study that tested various formulations of Roundup found even when they were highly diluted (up to 100,000 times or more), human cells died within 24 hours of contact with the solution.
What’s worse, when applied to crops, the glyphosate becomes systemic throughout the plant, so it cannot be washed off.
And once you eat it, the glyphosate ends up in your gut where it can decimate your beneficial bacteria.
Since your gut bacteria makes up most of your immune system, the end result is that your body develops an immune reaction to the chemical.
In comparison, in Celiac’s disease, the body has an immune reaction to gluten.
As noted in a recent study: “[G]ut dysbiosis, brought on by exposure to glyphosate, plays a crucial role in the development of celiac disease. Many CYP enzymes [which are essential to healthy metabolism] are impaired in association with celiac disease, and we show that glyphosate’s known suppression of CYP enzyme activity in plants and animals plausibly explains this effect in humans.”
Gut dysbiosis is a condition of microbial imbalance in your intestines that can lead to gut inflammation and leaky gut.
Hence, glyphosate mimics gluten sensitivity and celiac’s disease by causing similar gastrointestinal symptoms.
Roundup significantly interferes with the performance of useful germs in the gut and adds to permeability of the digestive tract wall and ensuing expression of autoimmune illness symptoms
In synergy with interruption of the biosynthesis of essential amino acids via the shikimate pathway, glyphosate inhibits the cytochrome P450 (CYP) enzymes produced by the gut microbiome.
CYP enzymes are important to human biology because they cleanse the plethora of foreign chemical substances, xenobiotics, that we are exposed to in our contemporary environment today.
As a result, human beings exposed to glyphosate through usage of Roundup in their community or through intake of its residues on industrialized food items become even more susceptible to the harmful impacts of other chemicals and ecological toxic substances they come across!
What’s worse is that the negative impact of glyphosate exposure is slow and insidious over months and years as inflammation slowly gains a grip in the cellular systems of the body.
The consequences of this systemic inflammation are the majority of the illness and conditions related to the Western lifestyle:
– Food poisonings
– Weight problems
– Cardiovascular disease
– Several Sclerosis
– Alzheimer’s disease
– And the list goes on and on and on …
In a nutshell, Dr. Seneff’s research study of Roundup’s ghastly glyphosate which the wheat crop in the United States is splashed with just days before harvest discovers the way in which this deadly toxic substance damages the body by decimating useful gut microorganisms with the awful outcome of disease, degeneration, and widespread suffering
Even if you believe you have no problem digesting wheat, it is still really a good idea to avoid conventional wheat as much as possible in your diet!
You Should Avoid Harmful Wheat No Matter What
The bottom line is that avoidance of standard wheat in the United States is absolutely imperative even if you do not currently have a gluten allergy or wheat sensitivity.
The increase in the quantity of glyphosate used to wheat carefully correlates with the increase of celiac illness and gluten intolerance.
Dr. Seneff points out that the increases in these illness are not just hereditary in nature, however likewise have an ecological cause as not all client signs are relieved by getting rid of gluten from the diet.
The results of fatal glyphosate on your biology are so perilous that absence of symptoms today means actually absolutely nothing.
If you do not have problems with wheat now, you will in the future if you keep consuming conventionally produced, harmful wheat!
The best ways to Consume Wheat Securely
Clearly, if you’ve currently established a level of sensitivity or allergy to wheat, you need to avoid it. Period.
But, if you aren’t celiac or gluten sensitive and want to consume this ancestral food safely, you can do what we perform in our home. We just source organic, preferably low gluten, unhybridized Einkorn wheat for breadmaking, pancakes, cookies and so on.
However, when we eat in restaurants or are acquiring food from the store, conventional wheat products are declined without exception. This in spite of the reality that we have no gluten allergic reactions whatsoever in our home– yet.
If we not did anything, our entire family at some time would establish level of sensitivity to wheat or autoimmune disease in some type due to the harmful way where it is processed and the glyphosate residues that are included in standard wheat items.
Unfortunately, it takes time for your body to fully detox from glyphosate.
As much as you can, protect yourself and your family by purchasing organic non-GMO products and foods. If you can’t afford to buy organic all the time, choose non-GMO rice, quinoa or other ancientgrains.
Eat foods rich in probiotics, which prevents leaky gut, helps synthesize vitamins and provide the foundation for a strong immune system.
Glyphosate exposure can cause irreversible damage over time, so it’s incredibly important to avoid.
