I didn't even finish reading the article, it's just too gross... I've read about it before though. I really think that this is one of the reasons that ORGANIC food is SO popular.

They just opened a Super Walmart here; the kind with the grocery store in it. I went there last week and they had ORGANIC MILK. Organic Milk. In a WAL-MART. If that's not a sign of people running full speed away from this kind of stuff, I don't know what is.

You would think though that they'd leave the plants alone. It's really disconcerting when you have to read the labels to make sure your rice isn't part human.

Icky, Icky, Ooo, Blech, Blech, Pthppth.

if this kind of stuff goes mainstream organic won't help. it's cross-pollination of existing crops that's the issue here. and it's really scary.

I don't know whether to thank you for showing me this or not <_< . This is really scary stuff. Genetic mixing and drugging our food supply. Hmmmm, and Busch beer is the largest consumer of rice? Maybe they could find an alternative to the malt?

EWWWW!! Scary stuff. And (I'm telling my age) it's like life imitating art. Brought to mind two scifi flicks

Attack of the Pod People and Soylent Green.

Scary, scary, scary. And what's worse, I'm a Missourian.

Soylent Green is all but a household word here. My daughter has never forgotten that film and everytime she sees or hears something like this topic story - she just rolls her eyes and says "soylent green!" Claire

Yeah, there is a lot of "behind the scenes" stuff and talk that most people don't know about. Who would want to do research in this area? I certainly wouldn't. In my opinion, I think there are more important things to research, such as finding a cure for cancer.

    • Did your doctor check for SIBO, H. pylori, ulcers, etc. when he was obtaining biopsies to check for celiac disease?  
    • Oh, and as I mentioned in my own post on pain, xanax. I swear. I tried it just to deal with the occasional panic I had at weird scary symptoms and clueless doctors. I am not a fan of long term use. But I recently found that .25 mg seems to aid with the neuropathic pain. It does not go away, but it helps. 
    • It does sound like a Glutening and you are just a few months into the diet.  It might help if you read our Newbie 101 thread under the "Coping" section.   Here is some information about rice milk: https://www.verywell.com/is-rice-dream-gluten-free-562354 Many, many celiacs are often lactose intolerant temorarily or permanently if you are naturally genetically inclined.  When I am glutened, I lose the ability to digest lactose for a while.   Salad?  Great but it can be rough on a sore gut!  Think soups, stews, easy-to-digest foods that you prepare yourself until you feel better.  Did your folks give you salad after a bout of flu?  Or did you stick with jello and broth?  I am intolerant still after three years to garlic and onions (the lactose resolved, thankfully).  You have a leaky gut (Google zonulin and Dr. Fasano who is a leading celiac researcher to verify that this is true) and that means you can become intolerant to anything (hopefully, just temporarily).   If you are 100% sure that you have had no access to gluten....did you eat out lately?.....then see your doctor.  Remember, celiac disease symptoms can change.  And here is the biggie.....it can take weeks, months or years to heal from celiac disease.  Two months in is nothing, really.  Why?  It takes time to figure out the diet and time for antibodies to come down.  celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder triggerEd by gluten.  once triggered it can go on and on damaging your gut especially with repeated glutenings (accidental or through cross contamination). I hope you feel better soon!  
    • I concur! I literally feel your pain as well. Like, at the moment, lol. Did you have an endo to see inflammation or damage? I am close to begging my GI for carafate or something to coat and protect. How about testing your antibodies to see if they are still rising? I read somewhere here rice milk may not be a good option.  Folks here have also suggested to me to stick with whole foods. Limit processed. Especially stuff that is not certified gluten-free, like chex. I think small amounts of gluten are in processed foids and can add up. I too reacted to lettuce the other day like I was ingesting glass. My sibling  had a food sensitivity panel done and it came back positive for a few things he had been eating a lot of. He can now eat them, but had to cut them out of his diet. Lettuce is probably on mine.  I have been drinking carrot and pomegranate juice,  dandelion root tea with hiney, aloe water, lots of squash, fish. Mild, no garlic, no onions or hot sauce. No coffee. It sucks.  Inflammation can tick off other organs, you mention a "Pain below". Not exactly sure which side, but certainly call your doc Monday. Sooner if the pain increases.
    • You should see a GI specialist before you go gluten free.  They should do a upper endoscopy to check for celiac damage.  Colonoscopy won't show anything related to celiac.  Also no you should not feel worse on gluten free, you should feel better.
