Silent celiac

I have celiac but do not have any symptoms after eating gluten.  How bad am I hurting myself when I do this?  What are the long term effects?

I'm sorry that I can't lay my hands on it now but I did read a peer reviewed study on morbidity rates amongst non gluten-free compliant celiac patients that said that 1 slip up per month was linked to quite a scary increase in risk of serious complications up to and including cancer.

That's not to say that will happen, just that there are potentially serious consequences for celiacs that don't conform to the diet.
