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.

    • I have 2 insurance policies, one with my husband's company and one through mine. I also stretch out the more major work into the next year, so I can make the most use of my benefits. So, a dental implant for me takes about a year for me to complete.  I have the post put in at the end of one year and the tooth made about 6 months later. Honestly, the insurance company probably hates me because I max out my benefits every year. You do what ya gotta do!  I still have to pay for some of the work out of pocket but about 75% gets covered. If you pay cash for procedures then they usually charge a lower price. Haggle with the dentist over price. They like getting cash.
    • Did your doctor check for SIBO, H. pylori, ulcers, etc. when he was obtaining biopsies to check for celiac disease?  
    • Oh, and as I mentioned in my own post on pain, xanax. I swear. I tried it just to deal with the occasional panic I had at weird scary symptoms and clueless doctors. I am not a fan of long term use. But I recently found that .25 mg seems to aid with the neuropathic pain. It does not go away, but it helps. 
    • It does sound like a Glutening and you are just a few months into the diet.  It might help if you read our Newbie 101 thread under the "Coping" section.   Here is some information about rice milk: https://www.verywell.com/is-rice-dream-gluten-free-562354 Many, many celiacs are often lactose intolerant temorarily or permanently if you are naturally genetically inclined.  When I am glutened, I lose the ability to digest lactose for a while.   Salad?  Great but it can be rough on a sore gut!  Think soups, stews, easy-to-digest foods that you prepare yourself until you feel better.  Did your folks give you salad after a bout of flu?  Or did you stick with jello and broth?  I am intolerant still after three years to garlic and onions (the lactose resolved, thankfully).  You have a leaky gut (Google zonulin and Dr. Fasano who is a leading celiac researcher to verify that this is true) and that means you can become intolerant to anything (hopefully, just temporarily).   If you are 100% sure that you have had no access to gluten....did you eat out lately?.....then see your doctor.  Remember, celiac disease symptoms can change.  And here is the biggie.....it can take weeks, months or years to heal from celiac disease.  Two months in is nothing, really.  Why?  It takes time to figure out the diet and time for antibodies to come down.  celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder triggerEd by gluten.  once triggered it can go on and on damaging your gut especially with repeated glutenings (accidental or through cross contamination). I hope you feel better soon!  
    • I concur! I literally feel your pain as well. Like, at the moment, lol. Did you have an endo to see inflammation or damage? I am close to begging my GI for carafate or something to coat and protect. How about testing your antibodies to see if they are still rising? I read somewhere here rice milk may not be a good option.  Folks here have also suggested to me to stick with whole foods. Limit processed. Especially stuff that is not certified gluten-free, like chex. I think small amounts of gluten are in processed foids and can add up. I too reacted to lettuce the other day like I was ingesting glass. My sibling  had a food sensitivity panel done and it came back positive for a few things he had been eating a lot of. He can now eat them, but had to cut them out of his diet. Lettuce is probably on mine.  I have been drinking carrot and pomegranate juice,  dandelion root tea with hiney, aloe water, lots of squash, fish. Mild, no garlic, no onions or hot sauce. No coffee. It sucks.  Inflammation can tick off other organs, you mention a "Pain below". Not exactly sure which side, but certainly call your doc Monday. Sooner if the pain increases.
