More Of A Rant About Uninformed People

This is a comment on my bodybuilding profile:

 

'Wild rice, barley (including beer), beets, MSG, teriaki sauce, soy sauce, and oats all contain gluten.... Also, casein is very close to gluten in molecular structure.... Many who cannot tolerate gluten also cannot tolerate milk protein. Whey is almost always contaminated with some casein. It is true that almost all soy is gmo, About 25% of corn is gmo. Soy is poisonous anyway and no animal or human should eat it.'

 

This was my comment in reply:

Wild rice as far as I am aware is naturally gluten free. Perhaps it is contaminated with gluten in processing such as the oats are. But rice is gluten free. I have never heard beets having gluten in them. Soy sauce has wheat in it, true. Beer - yes due to barley has gluten in it. MSG may cause a problem, but it's not from gluten. Monosodium glutamate is a flavoring made through the fermentation of corn, sugar beets, or sugar cane. It is gluten-free. I will agree that corn is mostly GMO - the corn that says it is not GMO has ~0.09% GMO corn - you cannot find true non-GMO corn these days. Soy can be an issue for some- I wouldn't agree that it is poisonous. But everyone can make their own choices based on their own comfort levels.

 

 

' "wild rice"....the dark almost black long rice isn't even really rice. Wild rice does contain gluten....most people are unaware of this. Regular white and brown rice are gluten free. MSG is made from beets. MSG is has drug like affect on the brain....it doesn't enhance the flavor of food, it tricks your brain into thinking the food tastes good. Now for soy ...it must be processed to a point of having all it's nutrients destroyed and re-inserted to be non-poisonous. You cannot eat unprocessed raw soy, neither can cattle, horses, or pigs. It will bloat them and kill them. In women it creates weight gain and other hormonal imbalance issues, in men it causes man boobs...another hormonal imbalance. I grow many hundreds of acres of the stuff. A campaign in the 70's to increase soy sales, touted it as a 'health food' and ever since, people have been confused about soy. Soy is good for it's oil for livestock and the industrial business. The gmo corn that is grown is at about 10 to 25% of sales....Yes they do mix all the corn at the elevator...they don't use separate silos or bins. Asside from farming, 3 out of 6 in my house must remain gluten free and have been gluten free for 15 yrs.'

 

I didn't open this up for debate or advice on the bodybuilding page, but a few of my friends there have celiac disease, UC, IBS, Chrohn's and we share our stories and learn from each other. This lady though... just put a bunch of bad information on my page and now I have to reply otherwise people may think I agree with her.

Tell her if she is posting, she has to show links to REPUTABLE  sites to back her claims. Just like this site, if you make a claim, you have to back it up.

It's annoying when you try and rebutt to postings made by the food ignorant.  You did a good job with your replies but Barty gave you added ammunition to shut this person up....although I am sure they may provide kooky links to unreputable sources, that many people believe.  The "soy is poison" topic is really getting old.  If what she posted were true, I would be a mess.  As you know, a lot of good protein sources for body building come from soy and I use them myself, with no issue.  Some people tolerate soy well, others don't.  Just like gluten......some can eat the stuff until they pop and others, like us, get deathly ill.

 

Unfortunately, you can try and educate people until you are blue in the face but it won't help unless they actually listen and educate themselves.....with the right material.

Its your site, right?  Can you just delete it?  Maybe post that you will not tolerate rudeness and blatantly incorrect information.

I try not to get super scientific and try to be respectful of the alternative medicine types but some information is just plain wrong. What really gets me is that in the same breathe so to speak, she says soy is poisonous yet grows hundreds of acres of crops to sell it. Say what? If you grew 'poison' to sell... what kind of morals do you have? I don't agree that soy is poison.. but I found that rather ironic that she uses that as her testimonial to her claims.

Sounds like she has herself convinced about things and there will be no changing her mind. Some people just put something in their head and you cannot change it! 

 

And cows pigs and horses cannot eat it but yet it is fed to live stalk .... Ummm OK lol

    • Today was the big day when I went to the GI and this is the first time I have felt heard and taken care of.  I told him about the two celiac blood tests  (in my first post) normal, he said that often happens, even with people who do have celiac and he needed to see the report and pictures from my endoscope.    I had filled out the appropriate Kaiser paperwork for Sutter to send all my medical records, but they ended up sending a disc with records to me, which Sutter said they could not use.  We also talked about gluten sensitivity v. celiac, and he said a lot of people are sensitive to gluten even if they don't have celiac. He said that my symptoms sound like classic IBS, which can be caused by any number of things.  He asked if I would try the FODMAP diet, which limits certain foods and requires no gluten. He said my symptoms sound like classic IBS, which he said can be caused by any number of things, including gluten sensitivity.  He has asked if I would try the FODMAP diet, which has restricted foods as well as no gluten because most gluten products have wheat in them.  So, since I am planning on going gluten free anyway, and I don't want another endoscope or blood tests if absolutely necessary, I am going to try the FODMAP diet and see what happens. I filled a consent form at the GI office today to have all my records sent to him so he can view the endoscope pathology report and photos.  I have an appointment with a Registered Dietician on September 30, and follow up appointment the GI in 4 months. 
    • gluten-free andee, according to an article on celiac.com  that talks about this subject see this link http://www.celiac.com/articles/24406/1/Celiac-Diease-and-Other-Autoimmune-Diseases-Equals-Low-Inflammatory-Diet/Page1.html Quoting the author "In the author's personal experience, a gluten-free diet has many limitations. The reactivity between alpha gliadin and corn, millet, oats, rice and dairy has been denounced as invalid by gastroenterologists and celiac disease researchers. While at a medical school in Missouri, biopsies did not show improvement in villous atropy until all alpha gliadin sources and corn, millet, rice and oats were removed from the diet."  Note this research is two years old but hilites the problem with non-gluten rice protein that you are having. It is the alpha gliadin sources that it causing the cross reactivity you are experiencing when you eat rice protein's. She says quoting "Celiac disease has gotten the most attention in antibody research, but the current data on cross-reactivity of antibodies is allowing a better understanding of gluten sensitivity. Antigen reactivity to alpha-gliadin can trigger immune attacks on many individuals beyond those with positive DQ 2, DQ 8 and TTG test results. She goes on to say "A low inflammatory diet customized to each person through testing for cross-reactivity or elimination diet protocols is needed to restore a state of health and well-being."  which sounds exactly like what you are doing. If you are still having problems after elminating rice a 30 day elimination of all the alpha gliadin proteins might be in order.  Corn is a common reactivity problem I hear with a gluten allergy from my friends as well as the obvious lactose problems that can be common among celiacs.  But rarely do you hear Rice allergy's brought up in context of a gluten allergy. I am glad you are making progress on finding your triggers. Read the whole article for yourself to see if there are nuggets of truth I did not highlight in my response. I hope this is helpful. Good luck on your journey to health. Posterboy,
    • One other thing - you might be able to tolerate some dairy if it's only the FODMAPs problem. I discovered that many cheese such as cheddar have effectively no lactose. And my wife sometimes makes 24 hour yoghurt, which also has effectively no lactose. Those have been fine for my tummy.
