This is truly amazing, I agree. Though it would be interesting if they also tested for simple gluten intolerance. I also think a stool test would be more pertinent than a blood test.

The thing about "non whites" is that we are all related to each other. It gets a little tricky too to say what race we theoretically are or are not statistically, since these days everyone is related to everyone else--at least in a broad sense. I have known several blacks for instance who are severely gluten sensitive. It may not be out and out celiac, however their bodies say don't eat the gluten anyway...

Nevertheless I agree- if you are fair haired with pale skin and of celtic or nordic background, the chances of your having celiac or other food intolerances seems to go up.

I believe that the researchers and the way these articles are being written are still trying to ignore that the "non- white" population (grits teeth when I have to type that) as they refer to it, has a much higher rate of auto immune diseases and problems here in the United States. I believe that the so - called "fibromyalgia" epidemic, is nothing more than a vast ocean of undiagnosed food intolerances, with the primary one being undiagnosed gluten intolerance.

In every population that wasn't eating what is now called the "Western" diet (high in wheat family cereals and breads, and refined sugars) those populations were healthier, until they switched diets to that which the "civilized" population had introduced. Now they are suffering, and we still, incredulously, have the United States Dept of Agriculture and the current Grain Lobby trying to push the remnants of the Food Pyramid eating guide onto them, while the medical profession still tells them to go vegetarian and low fat and "maybe then they'd lose weight."

I hear you on that Takala. Sugar and all the weird additives and preservatives they put in so called food is making a wreck of the nation if not the world. Gluten is a killer whether or not one has out and out celiac--especially the super gluten they now have which is many times more potent and thus more addictive (with opiates) than the original. And, like you say, fibromyalgia is spreading, as a result, like wild fire no matter what "race" one is.

FoxNews "Front Page"?

I'm seeing Soros-the-bogeyman, Obama bragging about Bin Laden (a bad thing there?), science-denying climate change stories . .....hmmm.

Why bring Fox into this at all? It's not an exclusive. It's a Reuters article.

    • Yes like a protein powder. I visit a local store there is so many brands and on every brand have write gluten free.that's way I confused which one is best any suggestions ! 
    • Do you mean something like a protein powder you could mix up?  A lot of them in the US seem to be gluten free.  Maybe just go to your local store and read all the labels?
    • Yeah I ended up allergic to corn, olives, sesame, whey, and peanuts and intolerant to dairy, soy, yeast, enzyme issues with breaking down meats, and egg yolks, along with extreme bloat with any kind of carbs/sugars in moderate amounts. And very adverse reactions to certain artificial sweeteners. So your not alone in all the other issues cropping up, it happens as our bodies adjust.  I eat a bunch of stir frys with veggies, egg whites, plenty of  avocados, and toasted and raw forms of almonds, coconut, cashews, walnuts, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, sancha inchi seeds, chia seeds, and sunflower seeds in all forms including making them into butters, spreads, and incorporating them into sauces.   Most meals are forms of soups, omelettes, and stir frys. I do the seeds and nuts on rotation same with my veggies and snack on fruits in small amounts along with some homemade baked goods I make for markets. I do suggest a rotation of foods, my dietician said I need to rotate my foods to prevent more issues, making sure I am off one one for at least 7-14 days at a time completely. I find changing up the spices and rotating my cuisine base works well. I also make puddings, and protein shakes along with nut/seed milks, and different bases and extract flavorings to get my random cravings Taken care of. Guess take what you can from this and and see how it can help you,    As to the tinging, I ended up with both B vitamin and magnesium deficiency issues, the magnesium one caused a fire like tingling in my arms, legs and back, along with muscle pain. Ended up on a doctors best powder form of it so I can dose it out right, and found epsom salt bathes helped.

    • Hi, I've gained so much knowledge on this forum over the past few months, which I am so thankful for. I can see how much hell people are going through with this disease and it's so lovely to see how much support and advice people give to others on here. I'd like a little bit of reassurance and advice myself from anyone that can help. I've been gluten free for six months. Two weeks after going gluten free I realised I also had a problem with corn so cut out processed food. Over the following weeks and months I continually had problems with food; fruit, dairy, a lot of vegetables, nuts, soya....it's basically dwindled down to just eating potatoes (not white potatoes), cucumber, lettuce, small amounts of red onion, spring onion, sprouts and beetroot. There may be more things I could be okay with but to be honest I'm too scared to try.  Is this all normal? Am I an extreme case? I've been taking some digestive enzymes and probiotics for about six weeks, my acid reflux has dramatically decreased but I always have a lot of loud noises going on in my guts, I'm guessing this is the probiotics working.  I've lost nearly 3st in weight since this started - which I'm not complaining about as I was overweight due to thyroid problems. I've had loads of blood tests done recently, all organs are working 'great' according to my doctor, the only thing they've picked up on is ketones, I seem to be having a glucose problem, which might explain my exhaustion and weight loss. I also have permanent numbness and sometimes tingling in one of my legs and sometimes hands and one shoulder, I thought it could have vitamin B12 deficiency but that's okay according to blood tests. I would be greatful for any replies. Thanks for reading.
