What the heck does breastfeeding beyond a year have to do with it? What a crazy statement to make.  It's a genetic condition.  My daughter has it because my mum has it and passed it on and it also happens to be in both sides of the family.  The introduction of gluten earlier or later may have done something, possibly, but not breastmilk.  I think it's dangerous and may cause to wean too early which actually can have major medical problems for some babies that last a lifetime.
