Health Basics: 50% of gluten-free foods still contain food toxins
by S. D. Wells
(NaturalNews) Let us delve into a recent news story that aired this past August on NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams; it talked about gluten-free foods only being necessary for people suffering from celiac and dismissed them for just about everyone else. One yoga instructor came on the program to talk about how she loves her gluten-free diet but didn't talk about what gluten really is, what it does to the body and why everyone should avoid it. That's probably WHY she was allowed to appear on TV.
Many gluten-free foods still contain MSG, aspartame, Sorbitol, Sucralose, maltodextrin, GMO corn sugar and other genetically modified additives that pollute and clog up the digestive tract and cause central nervous system disorders and ailments. The buck doesn't stop with the term "gluten-free." Consumers need to read the labels and know the food toxins that still invade these so called "healthy food" diets. Yes, gluten-free is a good start for people who have digestive issues, especially people with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Crohn's, Diverticulitis, acid reflux, constipation, and Celiac disease, but there is much more to it than just filtering out gluten. Let's take a look at what gluten does to the body and then take an inside look at how the media downplays it.
Take for instance Quaker's "Popped" rice snacks - specifically, the "sweet chili" flavor. The ingredients list includes hydrolyzed soy and corn protein, monosodium glutamate, maltodextrin, soy sauce, yeast extract, and sucralose, just to list the GMO ingredients! MSG and artificial sweeteners can damage the central nervous system and are all genetically modified. Synthetic food warps your cells and fuels cancer and tumor development. Pesticides and herbicides in the soy and corn protein (like Monsanto's RoundUp) break down the human immune system by eliminating good gut bacteria; this is the number one cause of disease and disorder. Gut bacteria also controls brain functioning! (http://www.naturalnews.com)
NBC tactic on gluten: "touch and dismiss" On the Nightly News this past August 2, 2013, you may have heard the phrase, "Going gluten-free may not be worth it." This is a trick to make you think that if you are not suffering from a disease or disorder right now, you have no need to be concerned at all. This is a huge lie. They are calling it a trend, as if it's a fad, something popular that's even been dispelled, like soy protein or whey protein. Here they try to fool you some more: "The no-gluten trend has become a $4 billion industry, attracting people who don't have a medical reason to avoid gluten."
If you pay attention, you can tell right away when you've consumed a lot of gluten. You may feel heavy, bloated or lethargic. This is no coincidence. The toxins in most conventional foods are now trapped inside your body, inside your cleansing organs and inside your blood, choking out the oxygen and holding in poisons that release slowly, until you cleanse. "Research proving the importance of gut bacteria for the immune system and mental and emotional health has gone viral lately. It started as a ripple slightly over a decade ago, and now it's becoming a tsunami of evidence." You can protect yourself. Check into fermented foods and probiotics.
Ever heard of diatomaceous earth? Ever heard of Chia seeds? Pull that gluten out of your body right away! Get those toxins out and you'll see how much energy you have. Take that, NBC!
Have you heard of juicing organic vegetables to help detoxify the body of pesticides, herbicides, insecticides, heavy metals and other synthetic ingredients trapped in gluten and trapped in your body? (http://www.absolutesanctuary.com)
It's time to do a little research on the real effect of gluten on humans instead of listening to the nightly news play catch and dismiss. Gluten is food terror. GMO is food terror. (http://www.nongmoproject.org)
Don't go anywhere near it as you choose your food. Don't be fooled by labels and don't EVER assume that because something says "Gluten-Free!" it's good for you. The FDA needs to "protect" more than just people with celiac disease, they need to protect everyone!
What will you feed your blood and organs today? Go organic and remember, any food that does not "exit" the body within 24 hours becomes toxic, so gluten could actually be the most toxic form of food there is, especially since it contains insecticide and pesticide. You won't hear about THAT on NBC.
