Gluten intolerance is a hot issue these days. Research estimates that over 18 million Americans now have a gluten sensitivity. These new gluten sensitivities are likely due to genetic alteration of crops, and while there is no GMO-wheat, per se, GMOs and modern wheat are killing us. Wheat’s mass production turned into toxic junk food, and now the combination of the two is causing headaches, stomach ulcers, prostate cancer, IBS, bladder and pancreatic cancers, and all sorts of digestive issues for a huge portion of the population.
Celiac disease is on the rise too – also caused by eating the proteins in GMO gluten. It used to be a rare disease, and now its popping up all over the place:
“Celiac disease was rare, but it’s now more common in all age groups,” says Joseph Murray, M.D., a Mayo gastroenterologist. Although the cause is unknown, celiac disease affects about one in 100 people. What’s more, the Mayo Clinic has found a fourfold higher death risk for people with undiagnosed gluten intolerance.
