I don't believe celiac to be a disease.
how can it be a genetic disorder, when man was on the earth much longer than wheat, which was hybridized by man to yield high amounts of gluten?
It makes no sense logically.
So if wheat was never hybridized from grasses to produce
high levels of gluten, the exact same human genetic make-up would not be a genetic disorder, and gluten would have remained another obscure toxic protein among thousands.
calling celiac a disease, and not a form of environmental poisoning is shifting the blame to the victim of the poisoning, and away from the poison, gluten, which is the common denominator of celiac, and it's effects.
in other words, you have the damage, and symptoms when there is both 1] the genetic predisposition
and 2] the presence of gluten.
if you remove the presence of gluten, the damage and ill effects cease.
now, you can actually take away the genetic predisposition, and find that everyone is effected in some adverse wat bt gluten in the diet. cross fit atheletes cannot compete against gluten free opponents in crossfit games if they eat gluten.
anyone who does a paleolithic challenge for a week, and tries the diet feels better, and reports having symptoms resolve, like gas, headaches, whatever.
Now tell me that it's a disease, or a disfunction of the human body to not tolerate gluten, when its obvious it is not what any human is supposed to be eating, the seed of hybridized grass!
It's common knowlege that it's not good for cattle.
when will we catch up, and realize it's not good for us, either?
