Here's an article on celiac disease that was in the National Post today...

I know I'm really picky about these articles--probably unfairly, as the author might not understand celiac as well if he/she don't have it. But the little things bother me: the "are you eating wheat-free...you're not alone" thing at the beginning for a few reasons: 1) It's also rye, barley, and all forms of these ingredients (malt, spelt, triticum, etc.). 2) It makes it sound like eating gluten-free is the same as eating low-carb.....

It's good to get the word out, though, maybe someone will look up celiac disease and learn more or get a diagnosis. I'm just...very picky/stringent about the details

Oh, by the way, thank you for sharing with us :). I like to read these

Summer time is coming, and with it will be the barbecues at friends houses. I will eat my hamburger with no bun, using a knife and fork, and the ladies will ask me how I like doing the Atkins diet. I will then show them the huge mound of salad on my plate, and educate someone else on Celiac Disease. Articles like this one at the very least get the name of the disease out into the public eye!

Yes--and at least this article doesn't mention someone like that celebrity (in another post) who eats the insides of sandwiches...this gives accurate information, rather than forming an image that falsely portrays the restrictions, difficulty, and importance of contamination.

I like the fact that they mentioned that also thick people can have celiac, not only thin people. Some things are said a little stupid, but to be honest. This is the best-written celiac article (from a layman probably) I ever saw so far. We're getting more publicity. Woohoo :lol:

Hugs, Stef
