National Celiac Disease Awareness Day is Today (September 13th)!


Portrait of Samuel Gee. Artist: Charles Vigor - circa 1900

Celiac.com 09/13/2010 - Happy National Celiac Disease Awareness Day! Here at Celiac.com we sometimes forget this special day because to us every day is Celiac Awareness Day!

For those who don't know, each September 13th is the official "National Celiac Disease Awareness Day" due to United States Senate Resolution (S.Res. 563), which was adopted in 2006.

September 13th was chosen for this important day because it is Dr. Samuel Gee’s birthday—who was the first medical doctor to discover a link between celiac disease and a person's diet, way back in the late 1800's. He once said "if the patient can be cured at all, it must be by means of diet."

Celiac.com hereby proclaims that forthwith on this day EVERYONE should eat gluten-free—and everyone should also be sure to hug a celiac! Oh, and don't forget to give thanks to Dr. Gee before eating that gluten-free food—after all, if it weren't for him we would probably all be pretty miserable right now!

Yes the crumpets are excellent. I have them quite often in the winter. Look and taste is excellent. They're probably not as chewy as the gluten ones but that's not really an issue as they are chewy in comparison to what I eat now.

Wow! Didn't realise that was a possibilty! I've had the little biscuits they make, they're really nice and the only danger is finishing the entire bag at a sitting! The weird thing is that I wasn't that fussed about panettones until I couldn't have them any more, now I really want one The Be...

If you are still worried you can also ask that the dry ingredients be mixed/poured outside (eg. on a deck, balcony etc.) and only be brought inside once combined with the wet ingredients. I believe someone else on the board once posted this as a suggestion, and I took it up to avoid roommate muti...
