Study: Monsanto’s Roundup Causes “Gluten Intolerance”


gluten free

I suffer from gluten intolerance. When I first became aware of it was after losing 40 lbs through a prolonged bout of diarrhea. I went from 185 lbs down to 145 lbs. I am 6′ 2″ in height! There are many foods that I used to eat that I cannot eat anymore; foods that I loved; cakes, pies, bread, noodles, for instance. Rice flour can be used for them, but it is not the same. Try buying a processed food at the grocery store. Most have some form of gluten in them, such as MSG.

I have several friends who are gluten intolerant. It is not particularly rare, anymore.

I find this study interesting, as it correlates the rise in the use of glyphosate, with the rise in gluten intolerance.  GMO products are bad, plain and simple. My advice is to go organic. – Shorty Dawkins, Associate Editor

The National Library of Medicine states that celiac disease “damages the lining of the small intestine and prevents it from absorbing parts of food that are important for staying healthy. The damage is due to a reaction to eating gluten, which is found in wheat, barley, rye, and possibly oats.”

The study authors, Anthony Samsel and Stephanie Seneff, have a different view. They point out that this rise in celiac disease parallels the increase in the use of Roundup, and the effects of glyphosate are those listed for celiac disease.

“Symptoms include nausea, diarrhea, skin rashes, macrocytic anemia and depression.

“It is a multifactorial disease associated with numerous nutritional deficiencies as well as reproductive issues and increased risk to thyroid disease, kidney failure, and cancer.

“Here, we propose that glyphosate, the active ingredient in the herbicide, Roundup®, is the most important causal factor in this epidemic.

“Fish exposed to glyphosate develop digestive problems that are reminiscent of celiac disease. Celiac disease is associated with imbalances in gut bacteria that can be fully explained by the known effects of glyphosate on gut bacteria.

    FYI MSG does not have gluten in it despite the name. Many people react to it, but it is not because there is gluten in it.

    It’s really very simple: GO ORGANIC!

    But isn’t it time to have an Executive
    Order outlawing all organic food?

    Be healthy Oath Keepers.

    Is MSG Gluten-Free?

    We had a reader question about whether or not MSG (monosodium glutamate) is gluten-free. There is a lot of chatter on different sites about MSG, and MSG can come from a variety of sources like corn, sugar beets, molasses, and wheat. Many sources say that MSG in the US is rarely made from wheat today, or that the protein is distilled/process out of the end-product. However, I have no evidence or guarantee that the U.S. MSG is wheat-free and the purity of any distillation is also of some debate. Some people still react to distilled gluten-based grains in alcohols and vinegars, etc. Also, I double-checked with Kyra Bussanich, who, as an award-winning gluten-free pastry chef works closely with her ingredients and their sources. She said that MSG is something to beware of, in part because her own reaction to it mimics her reaction to gluten (as does mine), but mainly because there are food processors that use MSG as a flavoring. More importantly, even if the processor is a US company, they don’t necessarily use US ingredients: she’s worked in places that have sourced their ingredients from Asia, where the MSG may or may not be derived from wheat

    This is not true – there is plenty of gluten intolerance in countries that don’t use RoundUp.
    It is another example of bad politically based pseudoscience

    You make a sweeping statement, yet give us no evidence to back up your claim. The article presents the findings of the scientists involved. Where are your findings?

    My recommendation to all those who have no
    problem with Monsanto’s Roundup: Go for it.

    But I want the “freedom” to decide for myself,
    since it is “still” a free country. –Full
    disclosure of ALL ingredients and countries
    of origin.

    BUY AMERICAN SOURCED AND AMERICAN PRODUCED FOOD.

    P.S.:
    There is “science” and there is “science”. –Take
    your choice.
