Go with your gut! Your gut is like a second brain. Everybody knows this is somehow true. Now science has recently discovered that 90% of the body’s serotonin is produced in the digestive process. Over 30 nuero-transmitters (brain chemicals) are created by the digestive process and the bacteria found in your gut. GMOs and their herbicide glyphosate (RoundUp®) have recently been shown by science to have a terrible effect on digestive bacteria.
Poor digestion creates cascades of physical and emotional problems. What’s news is that poor digestion and poor “gut health” is often the culprit for ADHD, autism and depression. The New York Times just reported that 20% of high-school aged boys are diagnosed with ADHD. Many children’s ADHD symptoms have been mitigated by eating a clean diet. Dr. Lidy Pelsser claims that “food is the main cause of ADHD.” Poor digestion can even cause autism.
Poor digestion causes nutrient deficiencies. A deficiency in just one mineral like magnesium can cause tremendous emotional and cognitive problems. And supplementing with pills won’t help much because digestion is so poor!
RoundUp’s® glyphosate has been found in 100% of urine samples at 5-20 times the limit for drinking water. Monsanto’s RoundUp® harms gut bacteria. Small children are especially vulnerable.
Italy serves all it’s public school children organic food. ADHD rates are MUCH lower in Italy.
Don’t eat CAFO meat. CAFO stands for Concentrated Animal Feeding Operation, or typical American factory (torture) farming. Look for animals humanely raised and antibiotic-free, even when you eat in a restaurant.

Roundup harms beneficial gut bacteria – study
New study by scientists at Leipzig University which found that Roundup herbicide, used on Monsanto’s herbicide resistant crops negatively impacted the gastrointestinal bacteria of poultry in vitro. The researchers found that highly pathogenic bacteria resisted Roundup, whereas beneficial bacteria were moderately to highly susceptible to it. The study provides a scientific basis to farmer reports of increased gastrointestinal disease in animals fed GM Roundup Ready soy, which is tolerant to Roundup.
The journal Current Microbiology recently published a study that caught Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide’s active ingredient, glyphosate, suppressing beneficial bacteria in poultry specimens. Given that gut health is directly linked to chronic illnesses and overall health, this isn’t exactly welcome news for people who can’t always afford or who lack access to organic, locally grown food.
But it gets worse. While good bacteria died, highly pathogenic bacteria were unaffected by glyphosate. These pathogens include several strains of Salmonella and the class Colstridia, anaerobic bacteria known to be some of the deadliest known to us, including C. tetani (tetanus) and C. botulinum (botulin). Although botulin is used to ease overactive muscles and in Botox, America’s most popular cosmetic procedure, it takes but 75 billionths of a gram to kill someone weighing 75 kg (165 lbs).
|IL-6||Rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, osteoporosis, multiple sclerosis, various types of cancer (multiple myeloma and prostate cancer)|
|IL-13||Allergy, allergic rhinitis, ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease)|
|MIP-1b||Autoimmune disease and colitis|
|IL-12p70||Inflammatory bowel disease, multiple sclerosis|
As you can see, two of the elevated interleukins are associated with inflammatory bowel diseases and one is specifically associated with colitis.
