Cause Of Leaky Gut?

I was watching Christina Pirello, formerly of Christina Cooks on her new cooking show.  She was talking about GMO foods.  She said that they found that when bugs ate GMO corn, their stomachs exploded.  She said upon further investigation with humans, when they eat GMO foods, their stomachs do not explode but get minor spots of damage sort of like cracks or lesions and then the food that we eat can leak out.  I can't remember exactly how she phrased it but it sure sounded like leaky gut to me!

I gotta disagree with that. If gmo was truly the cause, then the majority of the USA would be suffering from leaky gut. Clearly there its something more at play.

The most implicated cause of leaky gut is gluten consumption, when eating by those genetically sensitive. For more info, google zonullin and gluten connection.

Bt corn kills corn borers by interacting with a bacteria in the gut of the corn borer which then kills it. If that bacteria isn't present the corn borer doesn't die, but that bacteria is pretty much always present in them.

 

If you include rates of 'new' diseases like IBS, depression, anxiety, Crohn's, fibromyalgia and CFS (the last 2 have research that strongly suggests gut bacteria getting into the bloodstream as a cause) there's definitely SOMETHING causing it. I would not be surprised is Bt corn or some other food alteration were an important factor. Right now though I'm pretty sure no conclusive evidence exists, and a lot of it is speculation.

 

I think all celiacs diagnosed via biopsy will have leaky guts though anyways, as stri8ed says, and it because of celiac disease. I suspect that that's why so many of us can live so long with super damaged villi myself...there's no active transport of nutrients, but the gut just lets everything in.

gluten (increases zonulin production, zonulin dissolves gut cell junctions)

yeast (candida) when it mutates to mushroom form

antibiotics, NSAIDs

....

and what is to say the majority of the USA is not suffering from leaky gut???

It would truly  surprise me if the majority of people that consume GMO on a regular  basis  did not have leaky gut

Very simple. If you look at the studies done on leaky gut and celiac desease, you will find that the control group made up of randomly selected people, always displays a much lower and normal range of intestinal permeability (leaky gut) than the celiac patients.

 

So its easy to see, that the general population in spite of eating GMO on a daily basis, still exhibit normal healthy & levels of intestinal permeability.

Initially leaky gut onset is because of candida/gluten/NSAIDS/antibiotics/vaccines.

 

When your gut is aready leaky, then things that do harm you:

lectins (all main groups + GMO)

oxalates

Because those should not normally be present in the bloodstream, but with leaky gut they are.

 

This explains why GMO/lectins/high oxalate foods are non problematic  to those who have healthy gut, but are very harmful for those with leaky gut

    • these sound like celiac reactions  yes   ... basically avoid anything that causes the reaction   always and find your self a great natural practitioner and   rebuild  your body .. Rest vitamins digestive enzymes and very strict diet  Good Luck
    • Hey guys im from the UK and this site is really helpful for me. I've been diagnosed with Coeliac disease (uk spelling) for 5 years now and I slowly became dairy intolerant, which makes sense and I live with this now... but now alcohol has turned on me.  I don't drink often and I don't drink a lot (I used to in my uni years) but the reaction the next day (or same night) is horrific.  I wondered if anyone else had this problem.  I start with sweats and dizziness , then the stomach cramps cause chronic diarrhoea ... I then start to vomit until my body is empty .... this isn't the bad part. After my body is empty I go into a fit like state and cannot move walk talk or anything... the cold sweats start but I'm burning up. The stomach spasms are awful, I have to lie in bed flat with cold wet towels on my head and belly. I cannot speak or move for hours and feel so weak and unstable ..: this lasts all day and I can't eat or drink anything but I don't feel myself for three or four days. I avoid drinking but sometimes it's nice to go out and have some... am I alcohol intolerant??!! Does anyone else have this!?  I obviously stick to gluten free drinks and have a very strict diet! Im a severe case!  Thankyoy  steph 
    • I'm going to contact my primary Dr and see what his take is on this.  I know I can't wait another 4 weeks to go to my gastroenterologist.  Today marks day 23 of diarrhea.  Since switching back to Imodium it has gotten worse.  I think that the other 2 medications, even though I couldn't tolerate them and they didn't stop the diarrhea, at least slowed it down a little.  If my primary has no clue, then I am definitely contacting U of C.  The only thing stopping me is that they are out of network for my insurance plan so it would be more costly. 
    • Spring is cherry blossom season, which means that actual cherries are still far enough off that we'll have to leave their deliciousness ahead, and turn to their canned cousins for this recipe. Turns out, that's not a bad thing. Canned cherries make a tasty cornerstone to this super quick, super-easy no-bake cheesecake. Topped with lovely cherries, this no-bake cheesecake is a contender. Enjoy! View the full article
