“Foreign Chemical” CAUSING Gluten Sensitivity?!
Have you noticed that there has been a tremendous increase in allergies over the last few years?
You used to be able to host a barbecue or a cookout without worrying if someone would have an allergy – peanut, wheat or otherwise.
But these days, you can’t have a bake sale or send treats without considering the ingredients.
Which begs the question: why are there so many allergies?
Well, the full answer is actually very complex, but a new research study has found a certain chemical may be to blame.
Xenoestrogens (“xeno” means foreign) are compounds or chemicals that act like estrogens in your body.
While there is a whole range of problems these Frankenstein-chemicals can cause, they (thanks to new research) may be a clue to why we see a rise in the number of people who are allergic to gluten (the protein found in wheat).
The study, published in the research journal Environmental Research, was the first study to link environment exposure to toxic chemicals and celiac disease.
Celiac disease is a chronic gut condition that leads to nutrient malabsorption, pain, and bloating whenever people eat wheat – or foods that contain gluten.
The study found that young people with higher serum concentrations of a chemical called dichlorodiphenyldichloroethylene (or DDE) had twice the risk for developing celiac disease.
What’s more, the study found significant gender differences: higher DDE concentrations were associated with a nearly nine-fold increase in celiac disease females.
DDE was not the only chemical to cause an increase in celiac disease: high exposure to perfluorooctane sulfonic acid increased risk over five times, exposure to perfluorooctanoic acid increases risk by almost TEN times and perfluorohexanesulfonate by almost eight times.
Why is this happening?
Natural doctors have long said celiac disease is caused by a “leaky gut,” a problem with the digestive system which allows gluten (specifically the protein called gliadin) to pass across the intestinal wall.
Leaky gut leads to an inflammation reaction which causes all the symptoms of celiac disease.
This study supports this idea: DDE (and other chemicals) rip holes in our digestive systems – leading to leaky gut.
So how can you keep yourself safe from these chemicals?
Well, many of these chemicals can be found in cleaners, pest control products, plastic storage containers, and the lining of non-stick pans.
So I suggest using only cleaners which are organic and do your best to stay away from plastic food storage. Also, a wise move is to use cast iron or stainless steel when cooking.

Dear Reader, Have you started noticed troubling signs that you’re getting older? Like maybe you’ve found yourself sitting down to read a magazine only to realize you just can’t see the tiny words clearly without holding it at arm’s length… (Perhaps you’ve already caved in and bought a pair of reading glasses…) Or have you felt embarrassed as you stumble over words during conversations?...
Dear Reader, Ask the men in your life when they last went to the doctor and most will have a hard time remembering. I ask men this question all the time and I’m often answered with a blank stare. You see, most men avoid going to the doctor as much as possible…but they shouldn’t. Because men die faster. And in my years of...
Dear Reader, We’ve all been told to keep her hands clean – especially so in recent times. But wouldn’t it be nice if we were told the RIGHT way to do it? Washing your hands regularly is one of the keys to stopping the spread of germs, in part because we touch our face far more often than...
Dear Reader, When you go to your doctor with a problem you expect to be given a cure… or, at best, at least a treatment that will make your problem manageable. What you don’t expect is for this drug to open a can of worms for other health troubles. But that’s exactly what could happen if you suffer with anything from...
Dear Reader, Most people are terrified at the thought of chemotherapy AND with good reason. Chemotherapy works (in general) by poisoning cells that grow rapidly. Unfortunately, chemotherapy doesn’t just pinpoint cancer cells, it often takes your other healthy cells along with too (like your hair, your digestive tract…). But most people are willing to go through this pain and torture because they believe it will put an end...
Dear Reader, The fact of the matter is, getting older is tough on your whole body. Your joints… your heart… and even your good looks all take a plunge with every passing year. But, the worst part by far about aging is that it takes its biggest toll on your brain. Because as you age, you lose brain cells… and eventually, your...
Dear Reader, When I told Jim his blood pressure was dangerously high, he was quick with his reply: “I don’t believe that high blood pressure mumbo jumbo… I feel fine.” After all, Jim came to see me because he thought I didn’t believe in that “mumbo jumbo” either. And honestly, there’s a part of me that doesn’t. Drug companies make billions off...
Dear Reader, If you’ve ever had a migraine, you already know that they are anything but a normal headache. The throbbing pain… the blurred vision… and the extreme light and sound sensitivity can keep you in bed, hiding from noise and light for hours. And unfortunately, your mainstream doc is not any help. They’ll just suggest dangerous drugs… or even...
Dear Reader, Trying to get the perfect blood pressure is enough to give you high blood pressure. The never-ending hours on the treadmill… the risky drugs from your mainstream doc… and all the worrying about what you can (and can’t) eat really take a toll.

Dear Reader, Ever since COVID-19 swept across our nation, we have heard about how the virus damages our lungs. And the virus certainly does attack the lungs: that’s why we heard all the hubbub about ventilators. But your lungs aren’t the only thing to worry about. Recent research shows just how dangerous coronavirus can be for another...
