This article from the December 2013 issue of Interdisciplinary Toxicology and archived by the National Institutes of Health makes the case that glyphosate herbicide applied to wheat could be the cause of the rise in celiac disease, non-celiac gluten intolerance, and intestinal infection. The mechanism is "leaky gut syndrome" combined with an imbalance of gut bacteria and enzyme depletion. The authors go on to suggest that glyphosate may be causing a variety of other disorders as well.
