Would be interesting to see if it is linked to an increase in Crohn's disease as well. In the last 10 years, I've had three family members diagnosed with Crohn's. Not sure if the incidence is rising or if diagnostic criteria has broadened, hard to get a clear answer from physicians though.

The incidence of gluten intolerance is crazy, 20 years ago it wasn't a common thing. This was posted in some reddit comments today; interesting read.

Yes it would not surprise me if a lot of glyphosate reactions are being diagnosed as Crohn's, or cause permanent damage that then presents as Crohn's. Or leaky gut syndrome. It would explain the rise in gluten intolerance, especially when combined with the understanding of the rise of desiccation, which is the heavy spraying of wheat crops right before harvest, to help kill the chaff to make it easier to separate from the wheat. Only this causes a higher-than-normal amount of glyphosate to get in to the actual wheat food product.

GMO plants might be RoundUp Ready, but our human guts sure are not. And some have more trouble handling it than others.

Plus when you look at all the human health scandals Monsanto has been involved with... I would NOT be surprised if RoundUp's Glyphosate was the problem.

yeah that article is terrifying.
