Your gluten intolerance could actually be something else

The National Foundation for Celiac Awareness reports 18 million Americans have a gluten sensitivity and some experts believe this is thanks to a chemical, not the wheat itself.

Experts believe your gluten intolerance may really be glyphosate poisoning. A chemical known as Roundup has been used since 1973. Mixed with genetically modified organisms, it attacks our good gut bacteria and may make us sick.

Registered dietitian and nutritionist Bonnie London said, "Our food supply is inundated with these GMO’s, these genetically modified organisms, to withstand this pesticide."

A pesticide that the World Health Organization has gone back and forth over whether or not it's carcinogenic.

Registered dietitian and nutritionist Bonnie London says corn and soy are at the top of the list.

"The GMO’s as well as gluten has the ability to poke some tiny holes in the lining of our GI track," said London.
 
Experts say the chemical is in most package foods including cookies, cereal, and salad dressings.

London says America allows GMO's but other countries don't.

"I had a patient who told me her hair loss stopped when she went to Italy all because she wasn't consuming GMO’s and glyphosate.”
