New Study Links GMOs to Gluten Disorders That Affect 18 Million Americans Gmogluten1-728x381
Genetically Modified Foods are likely wreaking more havoc on our health than we will ever know.  The Institute for Responsible Technology (IRT) released a report today (Nov. 25, 2013) proposing a link between genetically modified (GM) foods and gluten-related disorders. In today’s report, a team of experts suggests that GM foods may be an important environmental trigger for gluten sensitivity, which is estimated to affect as many as 18 million Americans.

Citing U.S. Dept. of Agriculture data, Environmental Protection Act records, medical journal reviews, and international research, the authors relate genetically modified foods to five conditions that may either trigger or exacerbate gluten-related disorders, including the serious autoimmune disorder, Celiac Disease:

— Intestinal permeability
— Imbalanced gut bacteria
— Immune activation and allergic response
— Impaired digestion
— Damage to the intestinal wall
Many experts agree that the recent increase in gluten-related disorders cannot be explained by genetics alone, and that there must be some environmental trigger. This video below is of Jeffrey Smith, who is an internationally recognized expert on genetically modified organisms, and Tom Malterre, an expert in clinical nutrition.
Although wheat has been hybridized over the years, it is not a genetically modified organism (GMO), which can only be created by a laboratory process that inserts genetic material into plant DNA. There are nine GMO food crops currently being grown for commercial use: soy, corn, cotton (oil), canola (oil), sugar from sugar beets, zucchini, yellow squash, Hawaiian papaya, and alfalfa.
Most GMOs are engineered to tolerate a weed killer called glyphosate (Roundup®). They contain high levels of this toxin at harvest. Corn and cotton varieties are also engineered to produce an insecticide called Bt-toxin. The report focuses primarily on the effects of these two toxins.
Executive Director of the Institute for Responsible Technology, Jeffrey Smith, explains, “The Bt-toxin in corn is designed to puncture holes in insect cells, but studies show it does the same in human cells. Bt-toxin may be linked to leaky gut, which physicians consistently see in gluten-sensitive patients.”
Stephanie Seneff, Senior Research Scientist at MIT, expresses concern about Roundup®: “Glyphosate is a patented antibiotic that destroys beneficial gut bacteria. An imbalance of gut flora commonly accompanies Celiac Disease and other gluten-related disorders.”
Here is a study that shows how Bt toxins found in Monsanto crops can be damaging to red blood cells, and potentially cause leukemia. Here is another one that shows how GMO animal feed caused severe stomach inflammation and enlarged uteri in pigs. There have been multiple studies linking GMOs to cancer, and a range of other diseases. Scientists all over the world have come together to show their support for the ban of GMOs.  Mary Waldner, founder of Mary’s Gone Crackers®, a Non-GMO Project verified and gluten-free certified food manufacturer, says, “I’m excited by the research that offers an explanation for the dramatic increase in gluten-related disorders. I encourage everyone to avoid GMOs in their diets. I have always been concerned about the effects of GMOs and Mary’s Gone Crackers has never used GMO ingredients in our products.”
Although some experts do not agree, Dr. Tom O’Bryan, an internationally recognized expert on gluten sensitivity and Celiac Disease, says, “The introduction of GMOs is highly suspect as a candidate to explain the rapid rise in gluten-related disorders over the last 17 years.” Internist, Emily Linder MD, says, “Based on my clinical experience, when I remove genetically modified foods as part of the treatment for gluten sensitivity, recovery is faster and more complete. I believe that GMOs in our diet contribute to the rise in gluten sensitivity in the U.S. population.”
