Celiac-Proof Bread? Genetically Altered Wheat Could Be Safe For The Gluten ...

International Business Times

It's unclear just how celiac disease arises, and it can crop up at any point in life. At the moment, the only successful treatment available to patients is lifelong abstinence from gluten. This kind of rigid, lifestyle-altering treatment works, but is ...

This article seems to contradict what I have recently read from the WSU researchers that they would "like" to create a GMO wheat, but they think they would have to quote, jump thru too many regulatory hoops to do so. The article also does not give the source for the statement for the false claim that a wheat- free diet damages the composition of gut bacteria, I've debunked that piece of garbage before, because it was being paid for by the Wheat Lobby who paid some exercise expert hack at an Arizona university to go thru existing literature, make a supposition, and publish that, but of course the claim just will not die off mercifully. If these idiots think that I am going to risk my HEALTH again to eat GMO wheat, just because the Wheat Lobby can't fathom growing another crop for us, they are out of their minds.

I just knew you would have something to say on this one! :)

My first thought was : Great! Just what we need! Another plant modified into some odd Frankenplant!

These people that insist on chasing celiac-"safe" wheat make me think of the Boy Scout 's merit badge pursuit leading to "helping" a little old lady across a street she didn't want to cross.

It's only when a celiac is new that they imagine a future of being able to eat how they always had, whether via new "safe" wheat or a pill, but then once used to gluten-free, know it really isn't that big of a deal.

I also think that any celiac who's looked into AI enough to just know the acronym would be very wary of claims that "this one protein sequence isn't in this wheat so it's safe forever".

It's just not that simple.

You noticed that all the corporate entities we had during the last election on Nov 6 2012 here in CA that were flooding the airwaves and innertubals with their anti - GMO foods labeling invective against Proposition 37 were already using GMO's (mostly in the form of Corn- sourced) in their food and ingredient products ? The (Traditional) Food Industry Hath Spoken, they don't want to label the garbage that they're feeding us, because they fear consumer choice. The FDA shrugs and says maybe one day we'll "getaroundtuit" and do a voluntary labeling rule. The USDA says, "not our problem." Now we are supposed to TRUST THEM on their creation and marketing of an edible product with yet more anonymous, unlabeled protein content that can cause auto immune disease, if they screw it up ?!

SHOW ME THE LABELS !

I can't understand why all these people seem to insist that for some reason we are incomplete people without wheat in our lives. I don't want wheat, I especially don't want frankenwheat. Over and over again we are getting the message from these people that our lives are somehow worth less because we don't eat what exactly what everyone else does. Frankly, I can't imagine eating bread again. Not THAT kind of bread. The smell has started to make me ill. When will these people learn that we are HAPPY without this crap and we don't want them wasting time or money coming up with frankenfoods for us, they should take that money and invest it instead in something like research for a cure. (Like maybe that research for reteaching our immune systems not to be stupid.... I'm paraphrasing of course.)

I agree. My life is no worse for not eating wheat. In fact, it's better. Why must people put so much emphasis on FOOD. Food is not something that makes life worth living. It's nutrition. Until that attitude changes, they will keep modifying everything to make it more attractive to the most number of people. If I had it my way, eating the gluten free way, like our ancestors, would be the norm and gluten eaters would be the minority.

    • Blood results - odd
      My results were similar – Low ferritin but normal B12. Although my ferritin levels were low, my Iron serum levels were normal. So might be worth getting your iron levels checked out to see if you have any deficiency in Iron. Also I was deficient in Vitamin D, which is perhaps more of a problem in England rather than the US - Our milk isn’t supplemented with vit D and we obviously have less sunshine.
    • How do you know what's causing what?
      Hi Kam, If you are going to continue the celiac testing with an endoscopy, you need to keep eating gluten until it's done. It can be hard for vegetarians to keep their vitamin D levels up.   This Vitamin D  Council link has some good info on ways to boost your levels. https://www.vitamindcouncil.org/about-vitamin-d/
    • Blood results - odd
      Your ferritin was very low!  My result was a 2 when I was diagnosed.    I hard a hard time breathing and the fatigue was awful due to low hemoglobin levels.  But after going gluten free and taking iron for a few months, I quickly recovered from iron-deficiency anemia.  I still have hemologobin levels that are slightly below range due to Thalassemia which is genetic and my body has adjusted for it.   My B12 and folate levels are  super high.  My B12 is over 2000!  Yeah, I googled and ruled out cancers, etc.  Looks like some of us do not process man-made B12 often included in supplements.  I opted for natural sources of B-12 and folate and my levels have come down a bit.   Let us know your results.  Read the Newbie 101 section under "Coping" within this forum for tips.   Be patient.  It can take months, to years to feel good.  But it will happen!    
    • How do you know what's causing what?
      Welcome to the forum!   Well.....in theory you should be able to heal within a few months (grow new villi, etc.).  The reality is that it takes so much longer -- like a year or two (I kid you not!)  Why?  celiac disease can damage more than just the gut.  Depending on what was damaged (nerves, bones, etc) can impact healing time.  The gluten-free diet has a very steep learning curve.  It's not just giving up gluten.  It's avoiding cross contamination.  Becoming an expert in reading labels.  Learning to avoid foods processed on shared lines in a facility.  Then there are intolerances that most celiacs develop.  The most common ones is lactose.  Why?  The villi tips release the enzymes to digest lactose.  No villi tips?  Then you can not digest lactose.  Often this is temporary, but if you are one of the many adults in this world, you might already be lactose intolerant or might become so as you age.   Other intolerances that members often report include corn or soy.   Some celiacs react to oats, even gluten free.  So avoid oats for six months.  So, try cutting out dairy for a few days and see how you feel.  Then add in those items that have the least lactose:  hard cheese, butter, yogurt and see how you feel.   Avoid eating out for six months until you have seen some improvement.   Read our Newbie 101 thread under coping for more ideas!  Hope you feel better soon.   
    • Recovery diet, nutrition, leaky gut?
      I am having my endoscopy on Tuesday. I want to begin to heal my gut asap. I spent this morning in the ER with stabbing pain in my right shoulder blade, pain to the left of my belly button and vomiting. It's referred pain from my small intestine. I couldn't move or breathe hardly it hurt so bad. I NEED to get everything together to heal my gut asap. I don't want to ever go through this again. What are your recommendations? I've been reading a bit on leaky gut - anyone have good experience/links Or would the autoimmune diet be better? Are they one in the same? I know I am also reacting to casein and possibly potatoes.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
