Vitamin D Deficiency, Hormone Deficiencies, and Glyphosate (Roundup)
by Dr. Harlan Sparer, Tempe Chiropractor
Once upon a time, we all got enough Vitamin D from the Sun, particularly here in Arizona. After all, who couldn’t get the 10 minutes of Sun necessary per day to make their Vitamin D? It was about 15 years ago that this began to become an issue. Have you ever thought about why most people can’t manage to make Vitamin D anymore? Have you thought about why there was little to no discussion of gluten intolerance and lactose intolerance 15 years ago, coincidentally?
The answer lies in recent history. Michael Taylor, now President Obama’s “Food Czar,” began his career in food and government in 1988. As a lawyer he argued for Monsanto that carcinogens should be permitted in small “tolerable” amounts in our food (GRAS: Generally Regarded As Safe), thereby allowing carcinogens in our food legally for the first time since the Delaney clause in the 1950s. As a reward, he was appointed to the FDA, where he loosened regulations about Bovine Growth hormone and Genetically Modified Food. In 1994, President Bill Clinton appointed Taylor to a post in the U.S. Department of Agriculture. He continued his work there, helping to blast through a few dozen patents for Genetically Modified Seeds.
Essentially, since the mid-1990s, Genetically Modified Foods sprayed with Monsanto’s best-selling weed killer, Roundup (Glyphosate), have been present in almost all processed and prepared food, fruits, vegetables, feed grains, wheat, soy, corn, and cotton (yes, even your clothes, sheets, and towels). Years of consumption of Glyphosate have yielded horrific results using the American population as involuntary lab rats. One of the many problems with Glyphosate is its effect on the liver.
The liver is regarded as the Chemical factory of the body, as many biochemical changes take place here. An important group of enzymes located in the liver are the CYP 450. The Cytochrome (CYP 450) enzymes are responsible for the manufacturing of Vitamin D, Testosterone, Estrogen, and Progesterone, along with other Corticosteroids.
It is no coincidence that in the last 20 years there has been an epidemic of in Vitamin D deficiency , fertility, and hormone imbalances since Mr. Taylor and his friends at Monsanto opened the floodgates to allow Glyphosate into our food. Glyphosate clearly and demonstrably suppresses CYP 450 activity, causing gradual erosion of these vital chemical reactions in the liver.
The solution is to eliminate Glyphosate from your diet, along with GMO food. This can only be accomplished by eating a near 100% Organic diet. President Obama and Monsanto do it, they know better and it’s what they eat in their kitchens. Stop being part of their science experiment.
