While the production of GMO foods and preservatives allows more food production and longer shelf life, there is a direct link between consumption of these foods and gluten intolerance, better known as celiac disease. And that is just one auto immune issue.When one consumes too much gluten, it results in the over production of zonulin. Zonulin breaks down grain proteins and helps keep intestinal lining together and working. gaps caused by yet digested food can cause inflammation in people who are gluten sensitive.To combat this, eat garlic, high fiber foods and limit grains.
- A great number of Americans, about 50 million, have autoimmune diseases of one sort or the other. This condition can be worsened by GMO food.
- It has been postulated by Dr. Osborne that there is a link between GMO food and autoimmune disorders like diabetes, lupus, hypothyroidism, and rheumatoid arthritis.
- To show that the human population is slow to adjust to changes in diets such as GMO foods, about 40 percent of the population react badly to gluten.
“Dr. Osborne warned that diet, especially gluten intolerance, is one of the leading causes of more than 90 different autoimmune diseases.”
