Why is Wheat, Corn and Soy Dangerous?
Farmers sprayed 2.6 billion pounds of Monsanto’s glyphosate herbicide on U.S. agricultural land between 1992 and 2012, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. Glyphosate has been the go-to weed killer for use on genetically engineered, or GMO, crops since the mid-1990s, when Monsantointroduced its “Roundup Ready” corn and soybeans.
Glyphosate kills plants by interfering with a system called the shikamate pathway that regulates the synthesis of amino acids. As apologists for Monsanto never tire of pointing out, the shikamate pathway doesn’t exist in humans. But it does exist in bacteria – including the beneficial bacteria on which we depend for synthesis of amino acids.
Natural health experts have long insisted that glyphosate exposure can cause depletion of the amino acids tyrosine, tryptophan and phenylalanine – thereby setting the stage for obesity, autism and depression, as well as neurodegenerative conditions such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease.
Researchers know from studies on chicken and cattle that ingestion of glyphosate can destroy beneficial bacteria in the digestive tract, while leaving dangerous bacterial pathogens – such as salmonella and E. coli – unharmed. There is no reason to believe glyphosate isn’t causing the same harm to humans – giving rise to the current epidemic of gastrointestinal conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome, inflammatory bowel disease and leaky gut.
In an article published in the scientific journal Entropy, the authors concluded that glyphosate could be the most important factor in the development of multiple chronic diseases that have become prevalent in Western societies.
Wheat, Corn & Soy are toxic due to the pesticides and herbicides used on it. 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. This is an increase from 88% for durum wheat, 91% for spring wheat and 47% for winter wheat since 1998. Soy & Corn are extremely similar in terms of amounts of the crop that are treated.
There are many other reason why these crops are bad for your health, including but not limited to:
Amounts of heavy metals, halogens and petroleum derivatives in the water used to cultivate the crops.
The zeno-estrogen or “bad estrogen” mimickers in the crops themselves
The release of Zonulin in the gut due to the presence of Gluten and the increase in gut permeability leading to “Leaky Gut”
We strongly suggest removing all Wheat, Soy and Corn products from your diet. As well, as all GMO and Non Organic Products…
