Hello fellow Health Seekers:
There is much to learn and take into consideration about the gluten/dairy and sugar “frenzy”. Our wheat products are contaminated with the herbicide glyphosate, a key ingredient of Round-Up, to say nothing of the fact that gluten intolerances has become a major health concern causing causing leaky gut, autoimmune disease and linked to many other disorders.
An excellent article by Dr. Mercola:
Some foods that contain glyphosates include:
1) California wines
2) Bovine Growth Hormone (dairy products from the US)
3) Aspartame (Nutra Sweet, Equal) Best ant killer on the planet!
4) GMO (Genetically Modified Crops) you can get more info at www.ewg.org
5) Roundup Ready for corn, soybeans, alfalfa, canola and cotton
If you are familiar with Dr. Tom O’Bryan, he has authored best seller the Auto-Immune Fix, I highly recommend his book and especially his excellent “Betrayal” Edu-Docu series which has been featured online several times. He also hosted the Gluten Summit, also very informative.
Gluten intolerance is a serious problem that doesn’t go away by eliminating wheat for 3 or 6 months….no gluten forever! Amen, end of story! In Europe, there is no Monsanto, so little if any gluten problems.
Dairy, another misleading sales gimmick with the milk moustache that drinking milk will make your bones strong and increase your calcium levels.
Why do women in China not get breast cancer?
Another great resource is “The China Study” by T.Colin Campbell
It is all related to dairy. Cows milk is an acid (except goats milk). When you drink milk (or eat yogurt or cheese) your body has to neutralize the acidity of the milk in order for it to be digested. So it draws minerals from the bones to neutralize that acidity. What does it leech? Calcium. So really, drinking milk causes osteoporosis. Substitute almond or coconut kefir for yogurt. (Make your own). Non dairy cheese (more on that later)
Sugar is the cocaine of the 21st century. We are addicted to sugar: we need it in in our coffee, breakfast cereals, bagels, muffins, snacks, canned soups, soda pops and fruit juices to name a few.
Cancer thrives in a sugar environment., as does Candida (overgrowth of unfriendly bacteria in your gut) What do they give you after chemo or radiation. cookies and milk? What do they serve at Government subsidized Breast Cancer Support Groups, something sweet. Dah!!!!!
An excellent documentary on sugar:
