I was reading my Woman's World (page 13) and under the title "Wellness Tips to Clip" It says....

"Another plus for breast-feeding. Breast-fed babies are more than 50% less likely than formula-fed infants to develop celiac disease, a common gastrointestinal disorder caused by a sensitivity to gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley, rye and, to a lesser extent, oats."

I keep seeing things about this. I was breastfed, and I am the only one in my family with Celiac. Don't see the connection there.

I'm with you two Carrie and hlm34. I was breast-fed and the only person in my family with celiac, although I wonder about my mother. And if it is genetic, how is breast-feeding from someone with those same genes going to prevent it?

I think by develop they could be referring to the fact that it is often not found until later in life, or the symptoms get worse as you get older - for some people.

Don't get me wrong, I'm all for breast-feeding, and for getting the word out about celiac, but that quote is very confusing. ;)

celiac is genetic, but having the genes does not guarantee that you will develop it, because it also requires an environmental trigger. having the genes that contribute to celiac disease is a necessary, but not sufficient, condition for the disease.
