Common harvest protocol in the US is to drench wheat fields with Roundup (herbicide). Consuming wheat products increases the glyphosate residue in your body. Roundup disrupts the functioning of beneficial bacteria in the gut and causes systemic inflammation causing conditions like diabetes, heart disease, depression, autism, infertility, and cancer.
Curejoy Expert Dipti Mothay Explains:
Wheat and grain-based foods are all around us. But a growing number of people are switching to wheat-free diets as increasing number of studies show that eating wheat increases the potential for a number of health problems. The reason it has become so toxic lies with the manner in which wheat is grown and harvested by conventional wheat farmers in some countries.
Common harvest protocol in the United States is to drench the wheat fields with Roundup (herbicide) for an earlier, easier and bigger harvest.
According to the US Department of Agriculture, as of 2012, 99% of durum wheat, 97% of spring wheat, and 61% of winter wheat has been treated with herbicides.
Health issues concerning the consumption of wheat treated with toxic herbicides:
– Consumers eating products made from wheat flour are undoubtedly consuming certain amounts of Roundup. Using Roundup on wheat crops throughout the entire growing season and even as a desiccant just prior to harvest may save the farmer money and increase profits, but it is devastating to the health of the consumer who ultimately consumes the glyphosate residue laden wheat kernels.
– Friendly gut bacteria, also called probiotics, play a critical role in human health. Gut bacteria aid digestion, prevent permeability of the gastrointestinal tract (which discourages the development of autoimmune disease), synthesize vitamins and provide the foundation for robust immunity. Roundup significantly disrupts the functioning of beneficial bacteria in the gut and contributes to permeability of the intestinal wall and consequent expression of autoimmune disease symptoms.
– The negative impact of the herbicide exposure is slow and insidious over months and years as inflammation gradually gains a foothold in the cellular systems of the body. The consequences of this systemic inflammation are most of the diseases and conditions such as Gastrointestinal disorders, Diabetes, Heart Disease, Depression, Autism, Infertility, Cancer, Multiple Sclerosis, Alzheimer’s disease etc.
