Are you one of the 50 million Americans suffering from allergies?

The numbers speak for themselves – according to the CDC, “Allergies are the 6th leading cause of chronic illness in the U.S. with an annual cost in excess of $18 billion. More than 50 million Americans are suffering from allergies each year.” And the CDC further states that “…in 2013 food allergies among children increased approximately 50% between 1997 and 2011.”

People don’t really know why allergies are increasing but some are speculating that glyphosate is one of the main reasons as this chemical is found in Roundup and damages the gut and a damaged gut can lead to allergies. If this is the case then we can expect allergies to keep increasing as this chemical is contaminating our soils and food supply.

Many people have allergies and don’t know they have them. Sometimes allergies show up as fatigue, and they can present themselves in many different symptoms
