Many of you have probably had the unpleasant experience of having your blood work done in order to confirm whether you are gluten intolerant, and yes, most of you are just told “No, you are just crazy.” Some are terribly ill before they cut wheat out of the menu.
This has happened to so many people, they pass the test for anti-gliadin antibodies, but they are still aware that their health problems are directly associated with the food they eat.
Well, today you can be pretty sure why is it so. The results of your tests were right. You are not gluten intolerant, but poison intolerant.
A real mind-blowing article will sure put it all together for you.
“Standard wheat harvest protocol in the United States is to drench the wheat fields with Roundup several days before the combine harvesters work through the fields as withered, dead wheat plants are less taxing on the farm equipment and allows for an earlier, easier and bigger harvest.”
Harvesters spray the wheat with a lot of Roundup, before they gather it. Application of Roundup before gathering wheat is used since 1980s and it is used until now. Roundup dries the wheat 10 days before its harvested. Organic wheat is also being sprayed with this horrible herbicide. According to the US department of Agriculture, 61% of winter wheat, 97% of spring wheat, and 99% of durum wheat are sprayed with this herbicide, which is huge increase since 1988.
It is quite horrifying to find out that they add this toxin to the food we eat just days before the harvest. It is the most toxic, prevalent herbicide out there, and it is associated with all sorts of health problems. What is worse, it cannot be removed — it is milled with the wheat together and ends up in our bags of flour, loaves of bread and our favorite desserts.
This is a great explanation why some people with serious gluten symptoms can eat products from organic Einkorn wheat. It does not have to mean that it is the heirloom Einkorn — maybe it is just not “enriched” with glyphosate.
Modern farming kills us. Check this little rundown on glyphosate:
The very first study showed that glyphosate can increase breast cancer cell proliferation in parts-per-trillion range.
A more alarming study, which got accepted to be published in the journal Food and Chemical Toxicology last month, found that glyphosate, the world’s most commonly used herbicide thanks to the great use in genetically engineered agriculture, can drive estrogen receptor mediated breast cancer cell proliferation in infinitesimal parts per trillion.
The study titled “Glyphosate induces human breast cancer cells growth via estrogen receptors,” compared the affect of this toxin on the hormone-dependent and hormone-independent breast cancer cell lines, and it found that glyphosate can stimulate hormone-dependent cancer cell lines in what scientists describe as “low and environmentally relevant concentrations.”
Another study related with this issue showed that the consumption of glyphosate can damage intestines, which is the beginning of a great number of human diseases, including diabetes, gastrointestinal disorders, heart disease, obesity, autism, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s.
Another classification of certain allergy-type foods emerges and gets recognized for its negative effects on the gastrointestinal tract.
These foods are known as GMOs or GEs. Yes, we are talking about genetically modified organisms. A scientific research which indicates the intestinal damage induced by GMO foods in the article “Glyphosate’s Suppression of Cytochrome P450 Enzymes and Amino Acid Biosynthesis by the Gut Microbiome: Pathways to Modern Disease” shows how the large amount of pesticides sprayed on GMOs actually leaves dangerous residues in the GMO crops, which of course are linked to modern diseases.
The Organic Consumers Association says:
Glyphosate is the most widely used herbicide in the world. According to the EPA, at least 208 million tons of Roundup were sprayed on GE crops, lawns and roadsides in the years 2006 and 2007. In 2007, as much as 185 million pounds of glyphosate was used by U.S. farmers, double the amount used just six years ago.
A 2009 study found that Americans use about 100 million pounds of glyphosate annually on their lawns and gardens. It’s safe to assume all these number are much higher now. Why? Because GE crops are now being invaded by new strains of herbicide-resistant “superweeds” requiring higher and higher doses of poison.
Beyond Pesticides has assembled extensive documentation of past research linking glyphosate to increased cancer risk, neurotoxicity and birth defects, as well as eye, skin, respiratory irritation, lung congestion, increased breathing rate, damage to the pancreas, kidney and testes.
Glyphosae endangers the environment as well. It destroys soil and plants, and as shown before, it is linked to a host of health hazards. The EPA’s previous decision on increasing the allowed residue level of glyphosate is now out of date, affects health and the environment, and of course it is scientifically unsupportable.
All of the problems we link to gluten intolerance may actually be related to glyphosate exposure. This terrible farming shortcut may create an epidemic across the country.
One man bought a loaf of organic sourdough bread to serve with his homemade beef stew.
He was surprised not to struggle with any abdominal pain, bloating and upset stomach after eating it. And, yes, the first thing he thought was “I ate some bread and I am still alive!” How sad is that?
Sara’s article blew our mind, because when we checked it, all inconsistencies with the most common gluten issues started making sense.
This explains why you can eat delicious Italian pasta, and also why the odd baked goodies from the organic bakery do not make you sick. This is the answer to the problem, this explains the blood tests that show you have no problems with gluten, although your gut does not agree with that.
Say no to Big Food. Take more care about your wallet and do not eat food that contains poisoned wheat. Avoid eating wheat products completely or just go for organic wheat products.
Now you can change your family diet. It is less expensive to buy a bag of organic flour than that gluten free flour you use to make your favorite baked goodies and pancakes.
Yes, probably the bloodworks showed the exact results. Maybe you are not intolerant to gluten at all. Maybe you are intolerant to poisonous substances.
