#823775 Genetically Modified Foods?

Posted by Yup on 15 September 2012 - 09:59 PM

I was watching this film and they mentioned the increase of celiac and people with digestive issues because of genetically modified crops. It is worth a watch: http://geneticroulettemovie.com/

First of all I just want to thank-you on behalf of your hubby. I'm the celiac in my family and I am grateful for having a great partner who is totally supportive. Mistakes happen...forgive yourself. You make awesome decisions everyday on behalf of your husband.

#706116 Your Top Two Pieces Of Advice

Posted by Yup on 05 June 2011 - 07:47 PM

1. If you are just diagnosed, ask for a week off from your doctor. Go through your pantry. Start exploring your food options,sleep and give yourself some mental time to adjust.

2.Your body needs the best food now....and I'm including good wine! :D Instead of going for a cheaper red wine, splurge on something better all the time. In reality there is no truth in fast and efficient - something or someone is ALWAYS bearing the brunt of that thinking. It is a man made modern notion that we as a society bought willingly. Life isn't an assembly line, but we have tranposed this linear thinking and it has effected all parts of our society. Look at how our food is prepared, how our school systems are being run, how many doctors are treating patients...we treat everything like we do cars. Quick and linear with one answer. Celiac is a disease which doesn't fit this linear thinking. You will have to educate your doctors, your friends and family. You are now a celiac researcher, so don't be afraid to speak up and educate. Remember anything worthwhile takes time. Recently, to help me with my own life, I found Stephanie O'Dea. Google her. She did 365 gluten-free recipies in her crockpot and they are posted online. My family loves her rotisserie chicken.

Since you are new to the whole gluten-free thing. I just discovered Stephanie O'Dea. She made 365 gluten-free dishes in her crock pot! We have tried a few recipes and enjoyed them. She gives a verdict at the end as part of her review.

I completely understand why you are so angry. I want you to take Skylark's advice and go to the Disabilities office. I believe that these things happen for a reason, and by stepping forward with this, you will be helping others who follow after you. Planting seeds today will raise awareness later.
