I don't remember seeing any discussion of this article here, but there's been so much celiac related press lately.
I was wondering if you'd read it and what you thought about it, particularly in light of the non-action by the FDA to define the phrase "gluten free."

Even if you are not "super-sensitive" the gluten free gluten content can add up. Let's say I eat 4 cookies. Per serving they have 10 ppm. A serving is 2 cookies, but rarely do people eat only 2. Now I have just eaten 20 "parts" I also have 2 slices of gluten-free bread and a banana. The bread might have another 10 parts. It can add up.

I know that my addition isn't exactly correct but I hope it illustrates the point that it adds up. Even if we aren't supersentitive, it can still affect us.

Thanksgiving dinners take 18 hours to prepare.  They are consumed in 12 minutes.  Half-times take 12 minutes.  This is not a coincidence.  - Emma Bombeck

That writer seems to have a good understanding of super sensitivity in celiac disease/gluten intolerance.

I wrote to her to thank her for the article a while back, and she's a super-sensitive herself. Nice to have someone who understands so that others can get information other than 'it's all in your head,' you know? :-)

I'm good to know i'm not alone, though I wouldn't wish being super sensative on anyone.
