Monsanto's Roundup Pesticide Linked To Gluten Intolerance / Class Action Suit?

I just came across this article with some very credible evidence on the link between the pesticide Roundup developed by Monsanto and the increase in Gluten Intolerance and Celiac disease.  You can find more about this study here, with a link for downloading the whole article:

Now, my question, is when and how a class action suit by people suffering from Celiac Disease and GI can proceed.  I know legal action against Monsanto is normally an exercise in futility, but for symbolic value I would very much like to participate in some response to these findings.

A class action suit might be worth considering, but unfortunately no one has ever won a lawsuit against Monsanto and Monsanto has pretty much infiltrated our entire government.

 

GMO foods are already known for causing gastrointestinal problems, cancer, allergies, autoimmune disorders, and more, so it would not be surprising if Roundup was also linked to Celiac Disease. After all, Monsanto, the creator of Roundup and certain GMOs, also lied about the safety of DDT (aka Agent Orange).

 

Unfortunately, the EPA recently raised the allowable levels of Glyphosate (main ingredient in Roundup) on crops and the government has allowed companies like Monsanto to investigate the safety of their own products without question, so do not expect any government intervention because Monsanto has advocates of GMOs and Roundup in the USDA, FDA, Department of Agriculture, and the EPA.

 

If you have Celiac and don’t want to further aggravate your disease or worsen like me, you may want to start eating certified organic or GMO free whole foods. Also, please try contacting your favorite producers of certified gluten free foods and tell them to stop using GMO foods and foods sprayed with Roundup. (Advocating for a law which would require foods containing GMOs to be labeled may also be worthwhile.)

I've read these articles and the scientific study posted in the Publications forum. It's SCARY. After reading them, I vowed to go GMO free, organic, to raise chickens for meat and eggs, to grow most, if not all, of our veggies. A few days later, when I'd calmed down a little (haha)... and found organic eggs at the grocery for FIVE DOLLARS a dozen... I've decided to begin to replace our staples slowly. I found a great list of GMO free foods and many/most are available at our health food store. Plus, the 365 brand at Whole Foods is GMO free and reasonably priced. I can only get to Whole Foods a few times a year, but will begin to replace and stock up on better foods. I gave up the chicken for meat and organic eggs idea, but AM going to start making my own awesome fertilizer for my garden with worms! I'm also going to start asking questions at the summer farmer's market and see if I can't get veggies I don't grow to can/freeze.

People who have Celiac disease have increased risk for other things; for example, non-hodgkins lymphoma, and they die earlier because of these other risks.

This statement is not true.  Risk factors go down to that of the general population once a person follows a strict gluten-free diet for 5 years.  Celiacs also do not die earlier due to these risk factors.  I have many undiagnosed through choice people in my family and they all live to be quite old.  There are many undiagnosed for life people out there and we all see them yet many do not die earlier. People die earlier every day that do not have Celiac Disease.  A persons life span has many influences and most of it boils down to not eating right, lack of movement and bad habits.....plus the ever popular genetic influence that makes us all uniquely different.

 

I am not buying into GMO's and pesticides as a cause for increased rates of Celiac Disease because this disease has existed long before these two issues were invented.  I read that Socrates made mention of the "wasting disease" in his writings so Celiac goes back well beyond what many people think.  It just wasn't discovered and documented until the second world war and that was quite by accident. Increased rates, I think, come from the amount of food people consume that contain increased amounts of gluten.

People simply eat way too much on a daily basis and a lot of it is bread and dessert based.  Gluten content of bread and baked goods is higher today. Take someone with a genetic predisposition for it, add in the daily stress of today's insane life, feed them a steady diet of poor quality food with lots of gluten content and it's the perfect formula for an epidemic.  Just my opinion but all this focus on outside influences and lawsuits seems a waste of time. I also do not care what caused it for me as I tend to look forward on things.  I follow a strict diet that has made me well for the first time in my life and concentrate on being fit and healthy. No matter what the medical community comes up with for a supposed cure, I'm not interested.  This is my life and I am content with it.  I am not in any way saying that GMO's and pesticides are safe but they have been used for awhile now and truthfully, more people died from the flu epidemic in 1918 than from these two concerns. Luvs2eat made another good point......try eating all organic and non-GMO and see how your food bill jumps.  I eat good quality food and it costs me a lot....I can't add this to the mix.  Organic is great....as long as it doesn't cost $7.00 for a head of cauliflower!   :o

Lol. People are welcome to believe whatever they want about GMOs and Roundup, but it doesn’t change the fact that GMO cause inflammation and damages to numerous organs of the body, including the stomach. Even if one doesn't believe GMO or Roundup may cause Celiac Disease, it does not change the fact that GMOs are dangerous and the FDA should not have allowed GMOs, herbicides, or pesticides into the food system without considering the safety and health of its citizens and future generations. Also, when GMOs are grown, they are usually sprayed with Roundup.

 

  • Liver cells displayed vacuolation and fatty degeneration.
  • The kidneys had congested blood vessels and dilation of renal tubules.
  • The testes showed signs of necrosis and desquamation of spermatogoneal germ cells lining the seminiferous tubules.
  • The spleens were congested with slight lymphocytic depletion.
  • The small intestines showed hyperplasia and hyperactivation of mucous secretory glands, with necrosis of intestinal villi.

As someone who works in the legal field and has handled many complaints where Monsanto (now known as Pharmacia) was named - I can tell you that is not true.  Most big corporations like Pharmacia settle out of court because it is easier and cheaper to settle since their insurance pays for it than to take a case all the way to verdict. So yes, there are many plaintiffs who have walked away with "wins" so to speak against Pharmacia.

Rice grown in the south where cotton used to be grown is contaminated with arsenic becasue they used to spray an arsenic pesticide on the cotton. It is now in the soil where it is taken up by the roots to become part of the plant.

 

GMO plants are heavily doused with Roundup. The Roundup too is saturating the soil where it is taken up by the roots to become part of the plant.

 

I don't want to eat that stuff!

I've read several articles over the last year linking GMOs and Monsanto crap and the incredible rise of celiac disease in people. It's made me more aware and willing to eat cleaner and healthier... no matter what the cost in my rural area of the U.S.

    • ennis how do you test for Candida overgrowth did I have to see a functional doctor or do medical doctors test. It would seem like a plausible  explanation to my symptoms. 
    • Hello everyone.    Ive been diagnosed with celiac for about 4 years now. It's been a rough road but I feel like I've gotten as good as I can get with eliminating gluten completely from my diet.    I am an undergraduate student with a driven passion to become a nurse (I'm a guy, I know). I love the field and can't wait to help people every day.   As some of you may know, the nursing curriculum is extremely intense. I have an very strict routine and schedule where I can handle the rigor of my classes, work, and fitness (I am really into health and fitness, it's the best release from the stresses induced from school. I get 6 hours of sleep on the dot and manage to work, volunteer, study, and eat decently well. I love my life when it's on this routine and am so happy and social with people around me. I'm making progress, I'm moving forward, making something of my life.    But lately I've been suffering. I've been getting sick a lot more often from what seems to be random uncontrollable cross contamination from various things. When I get sick, my routine gets all messed up, I fall off my schedule, and things start going downhill. I like to call it the "celiac rut" I get stuck in. When I'm sick I can't work out, without working out I get extremely stressed and can't sleep. Without sleep I can't focus on my school and you know, the slippery slope that pretty much leads to lots of depression and anxiety.    This. Absolutely. Sucks. I fall behind in school and have trouble focusing on my priorities because I need more sleep to heal, and I can't go to class or the gym when I'm throwing up or spending hours on the toilet. Plus the mental symptoms turn me into an angry antisocial gluten monster. So that's always fun.   I really don't know how to manage this. I feel like at this rate I won't be able to keep up with my daily life. I physically can not handle the lifestyle I have when I get sick, and it piles up because when I get better I'm like weeks behind in material in my classes.    I am am normally a super happy outgoing guy, I love being the person I truly am. But gluten is singlehandedly tearing my life apart and the depression is starting to take it's toll.    I honestly dont know what to get out of posting this. I just hope that someone has some sort of trick or secret to get through this awful "celiac rut."
    • Hello, I have the same issue with the hair loss a few months after going gluten free, I have been getting the b12 shot and was also told to take Vit D and Calcium, Also told it was because my guts are still not happy after all i put them thru, It's very upsetting losing the amount of hair I have, my right side of my head is about 65% thinner then the left...Was told it see a Diet person right away. 
    • There is sort of a detox/withdrawal thing for the first few weeks for most. Keep a food diary, often after a glutening a new intolerance will creep up for awhile. Sort of your body associating another food with gluten, and or it just being picky while damaged. Write down everything you eat, how you fix it, seasonings etc. Change up the diet, and look for patterns.  My own gut is being picky today and had D after 2 meals so I am rotating up and narrowing down the culprit tomorrow myself....only see 4 common things in my food dairy.
    • Thanks for your reply. I'm currently grain free, although I ended up making kitchary because I needed something of substance in my stomach. Seems to have helped. Some other symptoms coming on strong, so just hoping I have some answers soon, to make sure I'm at least on the right path!
