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

    • Thanks for posting this Adrien, it's a great list and I and others will appreciate the effort and the thought behind it. I loved my time in Malaysia and I'm glad I sampled all the food I could whilst I was still on an unrestricted diet. The good thing is that, like you say, some of the nice Malay foods are still ok. As a backpacker I survived on a lot of nasi goreng and laksa, nice to think if I return there I could still do the same Terima kasih!
    • I have posted on here before. DQ2, brother with celiac, DGP iGA was the only mildly elevated test. Was gluten-free so did 6 week challenge last winter. Negative biopsy. I am gluten-free now but do go out to eat. Prior to the challenge my health was good. Since then I have: Chest pain, pain between shoulder blades, periods of shortness of breath, heart palpitations, one instance of a heart arrythmia episode, neck is tender to touch on one side (they kept saying sinuses or TMJ which my dentist vetoed) ear ache, bowels never sink. Numbness and tingling. Blood pressure variations. Could be doing chores and feel dizzy and it might be 84/52.  not super low, but not typical for me if I'm running around the house.While other days I am mildly hypertensive. Recently lost 5 lbs in 8 days without trying. Recently electrolytes were low, alkaline phosphatese was low. Ferritin started dropping so started liquid iron 2-3 times per day 4 months ago. Primary watching that, I am not anemic but we are nowhere near iron overload either.  GI doc was a dick. Did not even know DGP replaced older tests and he was very condescending When I begged him for help recently and told me to get a second opinion which is exactly what I plan on doing.  I now have pain in my upper GI area. It is tender to touch. I had my gallbladder out in 97 along with a stone and infection in my bile duct. It hurts in this area. Pancreatic enzymes look fine, liver enzymes fine. Pancreatic ultrasound fine. I will now be doing a EUS Soon to look at bile duct, pancreas and liver.   so a typical day for me is that I might feel fine for a while and then suddenly feel like I'm going to pass out. really dizzy, numbness in odd places, like my body has been hijacked. I will typically eat a bunch of food something high protein and in about an hour or so I start to feel better. However, then my upper stomach starts to hurt in place of the passing out feeling. blood sugars are also normal. After getting the " it must be panic attacks" and condescending looks a million times my primary finally ordered an ultrasound of my sore neck and there is an abnormality in my thyroid which she says looks like possibly Hashti's. Except for one time, all my serum TSH tests were normal. We have more blood work on Monday. As I have not put on any weight and there are other symptoms that are closer to Graves.  Has anyone else had any thyroid issues that followed doing a gluten challenge?  where is your stomach pain? Do you have it above or below your belly button? Mine feels like it's in the pancreas area, like 2-3 inches above the belly button and when I push on it it's tender, but not all the time. sometimes i feel it in my back. 
    • Thanks for sharing with me.  I really appreciate it.  Honestly, after a glutening last summer (still do not know what glutened me), I did not eat out for a year!  The risk was too great as my healing time took 3 months (for symptoms to subside) and six months to regain lost weight.  Our recent vacation to Europe was worth the risk  as we traveled with our entire extended family, but we were extra cautious and ate only at celiac-approved places.  Otherwise, we "dined" at markets or ate the food we brought from home.  Thankfully, we did not get glutened (at least we don't think so!)  
    • I do not struggle with this and I was brought up the same way as you. I don't struggle because for many years off & on we didn't have a bathtub, only showers as well as this being therapy or medicinal for the skin - heck even for the muscles as I age. I figure I've earned my right to luxuriate or medicate with baths any time I've a mind to. My husband saw just how bad my dh got & NEVER begrudges me a nice long soak in the big soaking tub we now have.
    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet
