Celiac.com 03/06/2014 - Celiac disease is associated with various nutritional and reproductive issues, and increased risk of thyroid disease, kidney failure and certain cancers.
For reasons yet unknown, over the last forty years, celiac disease, gluten intolerance and irritable bowel syndrome, have climbed to epidemic proportions.
Is the rapid worldwide increase in celiac disease, gluten intolerance and irritable bowel syndrome a result of the rising use of Monsanto's glyphosate herbicide, sold as Roundup?
Yes, according to a new US peer-reviewed paper from Dr. Anthony Samsel and Dr. Stephanie Seneff. Their research indicates that glyphosate is the primary cause of an emerging epidemic of celiac disease, gluten intolerance and irritable bowel syndrome. Their review appears in the Journal of Interdisciplinary Toxicology.
According to Samsel and Seneff, glyphosate, the active ingredient in the herbicide, Roundup, "is the most important causal factor" in the global epidemic of celiac disease, gluten intolerance and irritable bowel syndrome.
Stay tuned for more detailed summary of the nature, scope, methodology, and findings of the study itself. In the meantime, read the complete original review at sustainablepulse.com.
