Glyphosate: Anti-Nature


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 disrupting 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.


Gluten

Modern gluten is a problem in non-organic products because glyphosate (round-up, pesticide killer, anti-nature) is used.


Products that are processed with gluten include wheat, barley, rye, spelt, or other such blends. Gluten-free products use flours that do not require this protein.


Gluten is widely understood to trigger immune responses including inflammation that can damage the inner lining of the intestines — the real consideration is glyphosate.


*I made sourdough using better quality organic whole wheat, which doesn't have pesticides.




Anti-nature

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 (breads, cereals, pasta, cookies, etc) that contain glyphosate causes natural enzymes and good bacteria to die. The result is more work for the body causing these processes to be tougher to happen:

  • 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. The long-term effect may be chronic illness.



Choice

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 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)
