-1 New Messages...?

03 May 2007 - 09:48 AM

Why does my message reminder at the top say -1 New Messages? That is weird. I looked and am not at my quota and no new message either. And... it clearly says -1 not just 1 ...minus one.

Hemp

27 April 2007 - 10:02 AM

I purchased Hemp tortillas recently because I cannot stand corn tortillas any longer and the Hemp tortillas looked interesting and the package felt soft. They were great. Has anyone tried them? I am so happy to have tried them. I have had wonderful salad filled hemp tortillas all week long.

Today I was on a site called votehemp.com It was very interesting information. I believe the celiac community would do itself a great service by getting behind the Industrial Hemp movement. The crop is easily grown in the U.S. The food products are delicious! Offers an alternative that is grown in the U.S. and is very healthy. Again, our government is reacting to it's long time friends in the other grain industries, so the HEMP growers need friends from the consumers. We celiacs should band together to promote the resource Hemp growers offer us. With the CNN report stating that the gluten free industry is tripling, why not throw our collective weight behind a fledgling industry that is NEEDS support, will provide US with a food source that is local to the U.S. , healthy and looking to remain ORGANIC so it's not loaded with pesticides? I'm hoping others reading this will check out the site, see the value to the celiac community, get behind the votehemp campaign, and become the main backers of the growers thereby becoming the folks THEY answer to rather than some other group. It would be nice to have a grain grower looking to us for support! I see this as an opportunity for the celiac community in the U.S.

Stevia ~~ A Safe Sweetener ~~

23 April 2007 - 09:38 AM

Some celiacs find the years of gluten poisoning has caused many other health ailments. Some are looking for safe sweeteners to replace sugar. Some are wondering why the FDA's "safe" altenative sweeteners make them feel like death. That's because the FDA has approved sweet things that will kill you slowly and rot your brain to swiss cheese with neurotoxins. Aspertame is being touted, once again, as SAFE by the FDA.

These fake sugars are not safe.

These fake sugars are poison.

The FDA would have like to keep the lid on STEVIA longer because the sugar industry and the fake sugar substitute industry paid them to keep STEVIA off the market, and it worked for a long time.

So, for those who don't know, and are reading the new reports from the FDA that aspertame and the like are ! SAFE ! ....

Listen, go get yourself some Stevia. Not all Stevia is perfect. Some has a bitter aftertaste. I experimented a bit and found the Stevia by NOW is really good. It says "No aftertaste" and it's a bit of a lie, but really easy to get used to.

Bob's Red Mill Products And Msg

12 April 2007 - 09:31 AM

The woman emailing me about Bob's products and MSG said only that all of Bob's products are NATURAL. I had asked specifically if there was MSG in ANY product. That was not the answer I received. I've emailed back asking her to not use the word natural, but to answer my question. Does Bob's Red Mill use MSG? I can only hope this isn't a word game for them. I'm looking to replace all of my Kinnkinnick products after the horrible discovery I made about PEA PROTEIN being nothing more than MSG.

Bad Medicine/ Misdx And All Your Horror Stories...

11 April 2007 - 07:37 AM

They are part of Newstarget.com

How many prescriptions did you receive for your... condition (celiac) while it was misdxed? How many wrong dx did you receive? What effect did those medicines have on your body? Now there is a site trying to compile all the mistakes to take it to the next step. The FDA needs more oversite. Can you think of a disease that has more drugs for it's symptoms that CELIAC? Such a simple fix, yet handled so poorly by those who should know.
