#547147 Celiac Disease A Ada Disability?

Posted by on 14 July 2009 - 12:51 PM

It is considered a disability (this is how parents can get safe school lunches for their kids.) Many people on this board are drawing social security disability.

There is also a staggering number of people on this board who are determined that it is not a disability. I believe these folks are in some kind of denial stage of the disease.

You should be able to go to your Affirmative Action Office and get some recourse. I wish you the best of luck.

I did the TA thing in graduate school and I found ti invaluable in preparing me to teach later on.

#507889 Do Not Trust The Trader Joes Labels

Posted by on 03 February 2009 - 10:18 AM

Here is what I know about Trader Joe's. They have a champaign-citrus vinegar and it is on their gluten free list (available in the store.) It does not say gluten free on the bottle, but it lists "natural flavors" in the ingredients. The rest of the ingredients are okay.

I took a chance.

I got zapped. Mild, but I did get zapped.

That is enough for me, all arguments aside. No more Trader Joe's. It made me sick. Simple.

#488665 What Soap And Shampoo Do You Use?

Posted by on 30 November 2008 - 10:01 AM

I forgot the soaps for the shower and bath:

Korres liquid soaps/ shower gels (almost all are safe)
Korres solid soaps (not the wheatgerm one but milk and calendula are safe)
Juara liquid soaps (one-- the tiare- is too heavily scented)
Caudalie liquid soap (light fragrance- citrusy from grapes)
Lush shower gel (many types okay)
100% pure shower gels
Lush solid soaps (wow do they have a lot!-- watch the colors and the fragrances) I like the Bohemian soap, queen of hearts, alkmaar, quinquereme....

Good luck.

And JD-- I personally need to be very careful about topical applications of products. If everything is gluten-free then you don't have to worry. Anytime you put something on your body there is a chance you might end up ingesting it. And nobody really knows about absorbing gluten through the skin. There are studies that show we absorb up to 60% of whatever we apply to our skin. In fact, there is a website dedicated to this premise called "skin deep" where you can look up the toxicity of whatever products you use. They tell you what the bad chemicals are and what they do to you. The site is not for the faint of heart.
