Celiac Disease Awareness Bill Proposes May as National Celiac Disease Awareness Month
Celiac.com 08/31/2006 - On July 27, 2006, Representative Nita Lowey (D - NY) introduced H.Con.Res. 457, which, if passed, would recognize the month of May as national “Celiac Awareness Month.” The bill also requests an increase in federal funding for celiac disease research. Rep. Lowey was the driving force in Congress in support of the Food Allergen Labeling and Consumer Protection Act that passed in 1994, which requires food manufacturers to list the top eight allergens on their products’ ingredient labels.
Celiac.com supports Rep. Lowey in her efforts to raise celiac disease awareness, and asks you to get involved. Please contact your representatives in congress and ask them to support H.Con.Res. 457—to do so simply visit: http://capwiz.com/celiac/issues/bills/?bill=8945821

In 1994 I was diagnosed with celiac disease, which led me to create Celiac.com in 1995. I created this site for a single purpose: To help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives. Celiac.com was the first site on the Internet dedicated solely to celiac disease. In 1998 I foundedÂ The Gluten-Free Mall, Your Special Diet Superstore!, and I am the co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of Journal of Gluten Sensitivity.View all articles by Scott Adams
