I have heard this from a woman on another board? And wonder how valid this statement was? Thank you!

If there was an enzyme that protected people from cancer - only Celiacs would get cancer & researchers would be frantically trying to duplicate it. It would be all over the news. Celiac isn't about a lack of enzymes, its autoimmune.

Ask her for her source. Read the source. Beware her source, if she can provide one. It will not be a reliable & well recognized Medical Center. It will be someone trying to sell us "a cure".

I remember reading a recent article about celiacs eating wheat having a cancer risk. Celiacs on the gluten-free diet were fine.

Hello, almost every medical site you read frpm the Chicago Med Center who are top of field in Specialized Celiac Dr.`s to Columbia University, all state why it is important if diagnosed to follow life-time strict gluten free diet.

Left untreated or by ignoring confirmed celiac disease could be life threatening for you. We celiacs are prone to be afflicted with dibilitating or life threatening problems: malabsorption, osteoporosis, tooth enamel wearing, your central and peripheral nervous system can be effected, pancreatic disease, internal hemorrhaging, organ disorders (gall bladder, liver, and spleen), and gynecological disorders. Untreated celiac disease has also been linked an increased risk of certain types of cancer, especially intestinal lymphoma. Terri

There are some people who are either not sticking to the diet, or have not recovered physically yet and are prone to saying crazy things. And then there are people who are just trolling trying to provoke anxiety or attention. Sounds like you found one of them.

Trying to figure this out, it just sounds like confusion. There is an enzyme involved in celiac reactions, transglutaminase 2, aka TG2.
