The following article from the Celiac Support Association was super interesting to me. I am trying to digest it all and apologize if it has been posted here before.
I am always amazed at how much research our family has had to do to advocate for our health and wellness.
In case my link is messed up, the article is:
"Reviewing medical literature: a primer for those living with Celiac disease
The safety, toxicity or otherwise of gluten...
Author: Dr Geoff Forbes (MBBS, MD, FRACP) is a Gastroenterologist at Royal Perth Hospital, Perth, Australia; and Clinical Professor with the University of Western Australia. He is a clinician with expertise in immune conditions of the gut and in clinical nutrition. He is a teacher and researcher, and as he has family members with Celiac disease, he has a first hand knowledge of living with the gluten-free diet."
It is so refreshing to have such an advocate for the celiac community. I just hope Australia heeds his words of wisdom! I am still astounded at what a difference the strict legislation in Australia has made for our family. I just pray that it stays that way and that other countries around the world follow their lead. I think New Zealand currently has the same standards, but am not positive.
There is so much good stuff in the article, but I love the commentary on "Interpretation by others of a study after publication", and the first paragraph (repeated in bold as last paragraph of his summary and conclusion) really resonates with me.
