Glyphosate: responsible for celiac disease and gluten sensitivity

Glyphosate: responsible for celiac disease and gluten sensitivity

And let’s go back to talking about glyphosate with a bombshell, which has generated conflicting opinions within the scientific community.

In fact, it seems that glyphosate, a substance contained in a widespread herbicide from Monsanto, is linked to the increasing cases of celiac disease and gluten sensitivity.

According to a study published in 2013 but which is only now being talked about, in fact, glyphosate, contained in all wheat products, juices, snacks, snacks, pasta, breakfast cereals and dairy products (through cereal feeding of farmed cows) is actually the triggering cause of gluten intolerance.

How is it possible?
Celiac disease is known to be an abnormal (autoimmune) immune response caused by peptide fragments of gluten that are not digested and trigger the response of the lymphocytes. This results in inflammation of the intestinal villi which can lead to wounds of the intestinal wall and a “runny” intestine, with a number of symptoms including vomiting, nausea, rash, cramps in the abdomen.

How does glyphosate relate to all of this?


The damage of glyphosate would be intestinal.
It would inhibit the production of cytochrome P450 enzymes. This would cause a domino effect, which results in malabsorption of some key vitamins including D and A, of mineral salts, chelated by the herbicide itself, and the progressive inability of the bacterial flora to get rid of toxic agents. Hence, the abnormal immune response to gluten.

This is because glyphosate would not only be used as a herbicide, but also as a desiccant, to ripen crops earlier. For this purpose in America it is also used for sugar canes (I remind you that our sugar comes from the homonymous beets instead).
In addition to celiac disease, in fact, glyphosate is also responsible for serious diseases, including lymphoma.

To back up this thesis, the experts showed graphs showing an increase in celiac disease over the past few decades, in line with the production and distribution of RoundUp, Monsanto’s glyphosate herbicide. But wait: the problem is only about America, right?
