Celiac Society - Philippines, Now forming!

We realize that as more and more wheat and wheat by-products are being dumped into the Philippine Market - more and more Filipinos are suffering from Celiac or D.H. or other gluten related illnesses.

Filipinos were at one time considered to be Celiac free. However it is proven that the farther a Filipino gets from the traditionally Filipino Diet, naturally gluten-free and uses "modern" manufacturing the more they are becoming seriously ill with Gluten reactions.

One report was that it is believed that an American diet would give 1 in 97 Filipinos Celiac or D.H. - that is a higher rate than the American Population of 1 in 133.

In order to have a voice in out future, a couple Families have started a Celiac Society ~ Philippines and hope to have a voice in legislation that effects our lives, as well as provide information and helpful support to others in the Philippines that are suffering - so we can all get better together!

It is just a begining but the Celiac Society Philippines Website can be found at:
Celiac Society ~ Philippines

If you are in the Philippines we hope you will join with us in improving the lives of Gluten Reactive People in the Philippines.

Thank You and God Bless You,
