soulcurrent added a topic in Gluten-Free TravelSouth Africa?Has anyone had any experience with gluten-free in South Africa? I'm thinking of going to Cape Town next year. I've read about some of the local eats and seems like there's a lot of bread heavy dishes but I can probably skip those fairly easily.

soulcurrent added a topic in Gluten-Free Ingredients & Food Labeling IssuesNon-Gmo Food Labeling?I got this email from a family friend and I'm not entirely sure I understand what's going on here or how it would potentially affect gluten-free foods. Thoughts?
Please take a few moments to let your government know that you are against any type of law that would hide the real contents of our food.
This measure is alarming. Especially after so many years of trying to get full disclosure on our food labels....
I find it even more troublesome because of recent evidence that many "gluten intolerant" folks are not actually sensetive to gluten, but rather to the GMOs in wheat, oats, etc. (This is not the same as folks with Celiac Disease) What other health issues might be avoided if people could see a lable and avoid food with GMO's?
from their website:
U.S. government representatives are right now attempting to force
a new global rule at the CODEX meetings taking place this very week.
They're trying to outlaw all "no GMOs" labeling (Genetically Modified
Organisms) and food claims, thereby making it illegal for a food
company to tell consumers that its products are non-GMO. For more
Your help is urgently needed to send a message to the Secretaries of State (Clinton), Agriculture (Vilsack), and Health and Human Services (Sebelius) to urge them to halt the USA's nefarious attempts to install a global GMO deception.
Take part in this online petition, go here:
Please understand that the U.S. is attempting to outlaw non-GMO labeling of foods, thereby making it illegal for a non-GMO food product to even claim "non-GMO" on the label. If the U.S. succeeds in this global GMO cover-up, the FDA could seize any products in the USA that make "non-GMO" claims. Additionally, the USA could file lawsuits through the World Trade Organization against any country that allows non-GMO labeling or claims on its products.
Why is the U.S. pursuing such a devious and sinister course of action? Because, as you well know, virtually the entire federal government caters to the financial interests of powerful corporations -- and these include the "Big Ag" giants like Monsanto that want to patent all seeds while destroying the no-GMOs movement. They want to turn non-GMO foods into violations of the law and thereby strip all such products from store shelves.
They want to keep American consumers left in the dark, ignorant of the real dangers posed by GMOs. And of course, they want to dominate the entire U.S. food supply with their toxic GMO crops.
These powerful, dangerous corporations are willing to do anything to achieve their global agenda, including forcing GMO censorship on the entire world.
They might just get away with it, too, unless you join us in speaking up right now to oppose this devious and dangerous action.

soulcurrent added a topic in Gluten-Free Restaurantsgluten-free Places In Or Around Hazleton Pa?I'll be in Hazleton PA for a few days in June for a wedding. What I've heard so far is there's a ton of restaurants but most are not experienced in gluten free cooking. Is anyone from that area or have suggestions for nearby eateries? I'll also be in NYC for a day so any suggestions there would be appreciated, though I'm guessing it'll be easier to find something in the big city. I'm hoping to not have to settle for salads everywhere I go.

soulcurrent added a topic in Celiac Disease - Related Disorders & ResearchAutismSo many of you have autistic kids. What's up with that? Are there environmental elements to blame for an increase in autism? Does having celiac have something to do with it? I don't know a single autistic adult and a quick survey of my nearby coworkers says they don't either, but everywhere I go I hear about it in kids.
Makes the idea of having kids a whoooole lot scarier.
