(NaturalHealth365) Gluten is a type of plant protein found in certain grains like wheat, rye, and barley. But, for many people with poor digestion, gluten-free foods can trigger serious health problems – especially if they are contaminated with heavy metals!
As a little background: gluten-free foods have been shown to increase inflammation in the gut; disturb moods; and decrease overall energy – even if you don’t test positive for a gluten intolerance. Understandably, many people now go to the grocery store with a gluten-free food list to minimize their exposure to this potentially harmful substance.

About 6 months ago, we reported on a landmark ruling against Monsanto in a case claiming that their pesticides cause cancer. Bayer AG, who acquired Monsanto in June of 2018, is now facing lawsuits from over 11,000 plaintiffs, all of whom are claiming that the products Roundup and Ranger Pro are harmful to our health.
The focus of these claims is glyphosate, the primary ingredient in both products. Lawyers representing these plaintiffs have claimed that the pesticides cause cancer and attack healthy gut bacteria. According to Reuters, they’ve also made allegations that the company attempted to influence regulators and manipulate public opinion regarding the safety of their products.
Today, we’re going to look at the dangers of glyphosate, the current legal battles faced by Bayer, and the extent to which these pesticides have permeated our food and water supplies.
