Hmm.. I would love to see some of the statistics from the book itself, specifically sources and peer reviewed journal data. As anyone who deals with statistics regularly will tell you - "there are lies, damn lies, and statistics!"
Yeah, I really feel bad for the extremely symptomatic people. When I screw up and eat gluten, it's not that big of a deal in the near term. I don't notice a change or may take an unexpected extra trip to the restroom that day - whoop de doo. However, I will undoubtedly pay for it on the tail end when the damage catches up to me. However, the really symptomatic people pay twice. Once when they get "glutened" and feel like crud for a few days and again on the tail end from the cumulative damage.
The funny part, to me anyway, is that you choose to ignore pieces of sentences and focus on what you need to make your point. You sound like a good Hillary Clinton style democrat. Now run along and look up the word seems and close to..
Take off, eh? You know I was thinking the same thing, eh? Might as well go out with a Coffee Crisp and a cup o Horton's finest, eh?
BTW - checked my stash last night...Coffee Crisps are NOT gluten-free..
I'll let the others with more experience answer, but what I have been doing is ordering gluten-free things at restaurants - sometimes they get it, sometimes they don't, in which case I order a salad with no dressing or croutons and get vinegar and oil.
LaChoy soy sauce is gluten-free.
Yep, that's me. I have tons of dolphin pics, as I see dolphins quite frequently. I won't be guilty of OT posting though, since Kaiti is looking for a good excuse to get rid of me, so let me close with "dolphins are absolutely gluten free".
