Totally agree with LauraTX.


In Topic: Heavy Metals Testing - How To Do It Right?

03 April 2014 - 04:07 PM

@seeking2012 — Heavy metal poisoning is increasingly rare. Decades ago, lead in paint and gasoline were a major issue. Unless you have a particular reason to think you have been exposed, I suspect that your CFS has some other cause.

 

Some "alternative" practitioners try to promote the myth that this is common, but I recommend that you work with a qualified physician. Likewise, supposed "detox" methods can be dangerous, so you need to work with a pro. I recently was told about a kid whose parents subjected him to a "detox" program. In my opinion, this was unethical medical research on a child who is not old enough to offer informed consent.


In Topic: Can “Glutenase” Pills Help People With Celiac Digest Gluten?

kareng — I agree that it's important not to over-sell the potential here. However, since a large number of celiacs heal slowly (or not at all)—possibly because of the effects of trace gluten contamination—I think it would be great to have a pill that could take care of this problem.

Fascinating topic, Scott, and conceivably important as one factor in the increase in adult celiac disease prevalence that has been seen over the past decades.
