Just yesterday I posted a piece that described new research from Purdue that holds great promise for treating and possibly curing inflammatory gut diseases like Crohn’s, Ulcerative Colitis, and IBS by flooding the gut with beneficial metabolites that are normally created by gut bacteria but that these bacteria can’t produce when they have been compromised.
In a remarkable coincidence, early this morning I came across a blog post that describes how a Monsanto product destroys precisely those bacterial metabolites, causing gut disease. Furthermore, this post describes how the company and its corporate allies are attempting to hide their murderous actions.
Christina Sarich, writing on the Global Research blog, has just posted a piece that is a MUST READ for anyone who suffers from gut disease. Briefly, an attorney in California has filed a lawsuit against Monsanto that reveals that this company has been lying about the effects of its product RoundUp™ on human health. Specifically the lawsuit charges that Monsanto has been claiming for years that RoundUp™ targets an enzyme found only in plants and therefore cannot injure human beings.
However, this lawsuit reveals that RoundUp™ does in fact target a specific enzyme produced by the bacteria in the human gut, and the bacteria that produce the enzyme EPSP synthase, also known as (3-phosphoshikimate 1-carboxyvinyltransferase) play a key role in immunity activation and help our gut and our brains communicate with one another.
EPSP synthase is among other beneficial neurometabolites produced by gut bacteria that are either neurotransmitters or modulators of neurotransmission.
Sarich quotes from the lawsuit: “These could act directly on nerve terminals in the gut or via ‘transducer’ cells such as enterochromaffin cells present throughout the intestinal tract and are accessible to microbes and in contact with afferent and efferent nerve terminals. Some of these cells may also signal and therefore modulate immune cell activity.”
In case I am not being crystal clear – this lawsuit is based on sound, valid scientific and medical evidence that Monsanto has been lying for years about the effects of RoundUp™ on human health, and is at least partially responsible for the epidemic of gut disease in America and around the world. They are producing a product that they know is not just a weed killer – it is a people killer.
If you live in California, or if you know anyone who lives in California, you or they can join this lawsuit. Full details are in Sarich’s article. If you agree that Monsanto is a criminal corporation that must be held accountable for their genocidal actions in the name of profit, then take whatever action you can to help spread the word.
