If You Were Offered $100K To Eat A Piece Of Bread/cake/scroll/croissant Would You Go For It?

See, I'd do it because I don't suffer from seizures or anything that severe. I've been a celiac for 7 years now and on my worst glutening I deal with severe abdominal pain and D but no seizures. If I had that type of reaction, I wouldn't do it either!

I'm sure they'd be more than happy to film it in the pot if you asked them to... You might even get paid a bit extra if you're lucky... ;)

Well, now, don't I feel like a cheap w****? While I don't think $150 would be worth feeling like cr@p for the next 24 hours, I think $500 would get my attention. But only if I get to pick the day and clear my schedule first.

Of course, I wouldn't like that to be my steady income or anything :).

You're very fortunate if your reactions only last for 24 hours. Mine last a week at minimum, up to two weeks. And the last time I had a large amount of gluten on accident I ended up getting brochitus which turned into pnuemonia, requiring several pricey breathing treatments at Urgent Care, chest x-rays, consult with a pulmonologist, etc. I was sick for 3 months because of a restaruant mistake. Even if I were in need of the money and decided to do this I would require that they also sign a contract that they are responsible for paying any medical bills incurred. But even then I just can't see giving up my dignity (in allowing them to film my suffering) for some money.

Sure! It might not be fun for a few weeks but eventually it would pass.

Heck yeah. I'd enjoy my delicious pain au chocolat (that's what I'd eat for sure), earn enough to pay for any further schooling I want to pursue, and they'd get... a six or seven hour video of me passed out, probably snoring.

Sounds fair to me!! :D

I would love to have a 100k at the moment but I am so terrified of developing some other autoimmune condition or disease that I'm not sure i could get myself to do it. Although, I wouldn't recommend people do it maybe it would be a good PSA or something to show the rest of the world what gluten does to us. I know most of my family members use to not take my celiacs very seriously until they saw me get sick from some cross contamination. After that little incident they took it a lot more seriously. So maybe it would get good to get a gluten reaction on film for everyone else to see.

nope, not for a million dollars. No amount of money is worth the pain.

A friend of mine has made the following statement:

What do you think? Would you eat something laden with gluten so that you could earn a certain amount of money?

I understand that there are some very sick people in the world................ but surely no one is so sick as to want to pay for the pleasure of seeing someone violently ill from eating gluten........surely there are other ways these people can be entertained.

    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet

    • No!  Once you fill the tub, if you sit in it for 3 minutes or you stay for 10... It doesn't change the amount or cost of the water.  That's only relevant if you have 3 kids to cycle thru that same water.  Is your hub bathing in the same water after you? Lol  And even if you add some more hot and stay longer....well...it's much cheaper than perscription meds, vodka or a substance that is legal in a few states.     Of course this only pertains to those of use with running water.... If you make your hub haul water from the creek or well and heat it over a fire....
    • Whether it is bona fide dermatitis herpetiformis, or severe eczema or hives or what have you, we all want to know how to stop the incessant itching.  Through all my research, the solution comes down to one thing: a good long soak in the tub-- with baking soda or Epsom salts or some kind of herbal tea, followed by a rub down in thick expensive lotion.  I don't know about you, but I was brought up to "get in, get done get out."  A long soak in the bath was a frivolous luxury, and a waste of time and hot water.  So now I'm having this awful breakout from forgetting to read a label and got wheated.  And every night I've been soaking in a baking soda bath to relieve the itching and aid my recovery.  And it's been hard! (But it's been very helpful too)  It has been hard to reconcile this "frivolous luxury and waste of time" as medically necessary!  Fortunately I've had no judging, and only support from my husband, who has had a similar upbringing.  Does anyone else struggle with this?

      I have celiac disease and have been gluten-free for almost 10 years.  I am extremely sensitive to gluten, noting that I react within 15 minutes of contact and in fact the doctor suspects that there may also be an actual wheat allergy at play but have never bothered to be tested since I avoid it like the plague!  I am curious to know if anyone else reacts to flax or inulin?  My symptoms with those two are almost identical to gluten so I have to really watch for that in gluten-free breads and baking and recently discovered after the fact that flax was in the juice I was drinking. I know that people with gluten issues can have other problems as well and in fact I also avoid milk products.  Even after 10 years, and although it has become a way of life, it's still frustrating to have to read every ingredient on every label.😞
