We MUST choose our foods wisely (cooking and dining out). Glyphosate is the most widely used weed killer in the world contaminating our foods and causing disruption within our bodies.
Dr. Stephanie Seneff, states that glyphosate contributes “the most important factor in the development of multiple chronic diseases and conditions that have become prevalent in Westernized societies.”
Today, even products that are certified organic or non-GMO, tested by The Detox Project, have levels of glyphosate. It’s best to avoid non-organic gluten and other products that may have been sprayed with this toxic chemical.
Glyphosate contamination cannot be removed by washing (it is absorbed into the plant while it’s growing). According to the Detox Project, glyphosate has no safe level.
Modern gluten is a problem because glyphosate (round-up, pesticide killer, anti-nature) is used.
Gluten, which is all things created with whole wheat or similar flour, has been sprayed with glyphosate.
Gluten is widely understood to trigger immune responses including inflammation that can damage the inner lining of the intestines — the real consideration is glyphosate.
Glyphosate destroys probiotics, or beneficial gut bacteria because its design is anti-nature, to kill off growth. It doesn’t hurt pathogenic bacteria— harmful bacteria that cause dysbiosis— an imbalance in the microbiome.
Eating products that contain glyphosate causes the killing of natural enzymes and good bacteria, AND makes it harder for the body to do the following:
Properly eliminate toxins
Form bile acids, which are important for nutrient absorption
Produce essential fatty acids
Activate vitamin D
Break down vitamin A into usable forms
Anti-nature food is contributing to many of the reasons we can't properly restore gut balance, can't lose fat, feel sluggish, and eat unhealthy foods. Then the long-term effect is a chronic illness.
We must ensure the food products we consume are GMO and glyphosate-free.
Choose organic products with non-GMO verified labels.
- Glyphosate use is so out of control, that some organic foods may contain small amounts of glyphosate residues.
- California-certified organic products may have the label CCOF. More info here.
Grow your own glyphosate-free food or purchase from farmers you trust at farmers’ markets.
Eliminate gluten products that are not certified organic.
The Detox Project uses an FDA-registered food-testing lab to test for toxic chemicals and launched its own “Glyphosate Residue Free” label.
Tackle it 1. Eliminate foods - processed and whole foods that are non-organic
2. Detoxify - use antioxidants (herbs, spices, spirulina, turmeric/ ginger root)
3. Repair - fish oil (omega-3 fatty acids), citrus pectin (restore gut barrier)
4. Restore and revitalize - probiotics, prebiotics, digestive enzymes
5. Eat whole foods
- with S.O.U.L (sustainable, organic, unprocessed, local)
