Someone on another site brought up how cool it would be to see cross contamination and gluten featured on mythbusters. My kids love the idea and asked me to get everyone I can to submit myths about gluten to mythbusters. I started a thread on their site and I hope folks will post their gluten related myths as well.

The person who responded to your thread on there needs some serious Celiac education!

We've already seen and experienced the very real negative effects from getting cross contaminated food, despite careful ingredient checking. The question is not whether we need to be concerned about contamination, but what measures actually can destroy the gluten proteins.

Interestingly, the wiki article the person quoted contradicts what was said in that person's post!

I am a little nervous mb will take it up then spread misinformation, but the more people post contradictory statements, the more likely the topic is to be taken up. My son really would love to see his issues reflected in mainstream culture and mb does tend to do a good job. I want to support his efforts to reach out.

That guy's post really irritated me. Made me (just for a moment) wish that he was a very sensitive celiac being told that his actions seem extreme. Butthead :angry:

Just to be clear, the butthead is the guy arguing on the thread about destroying gluten, not this forum :P

Gluten free is not so bad! If you are new, hang it there, it gets easier!

I registered as gfKaren. He just wants to argue. It had nothing to do with the question really.

"Why are you being so argumentative? Questioning the ladies illness? All she and her kids wanted to know was at what temperature a wheat gluten protein incinerates. We have heard that it is a big sturdy molecule that can withstand temperatures that would destroy other proteins. Debating with us whether 1 molecule can make us sick has nothing to do with the topic and request."

Yeah I noticed that response or two you got was pretty grouchy. I have never heard anyone bicker with someone about a diagnosed medical condition - let alone completely miss the point of the post. All you wanted to know is how hot does the water have to get to destroy gluten and can it hang around with normal washing & still contaminate someone.

Brother!

When I saw this photo, I thought it truly represented my life prior to being gluten-free. It was like being rooted in place trying to survive a Category 5. Now that I am gluten-free, I feel like I just might make it :)

No...none of us here are ever butt heads! :P

I think everyone should go on there and back her up! C.com against Buttheads!

:) don't forget to maintain the high ground. Buttheads usually just end up making themselves look bad, anyway.

I just posted a comment under the name gfSarah. I'm afraid after I posted I saw that I was a little long winded and preachy, but, oh well. :rolleyes:

I wish people would be more understanding and encouraging about what we have to do to stay healthy. It's not like it's easy or something we do just cause we want to.

Wow. What's his problem? Does he even know what Celiac is?? Some people need to find a hobby... Just ignore him. Don't even give him the negative attention. He doesn't deserve it. Let's all just keep writing that we have seen some serious regression. Some people.... Sheesh.

I looked around. The guy is an "expert" on everything. He gets his info from Wikipedia which is not always accurate. He must be pretty old because he said "wet hen party". I'm not sure anyone under 80 would use that term.

Anyway, ignoring him will probably frustrate him the most.
