Honestly I would prefer to have my genes or my kids genes edited to not react to gluten then consume a genetically modified grain. I will not have kids, til we can edit out the genes for celiac, autism, etc. Love how they are advancing the crispr research but why do not they focus on the problem of the genes of the human reacting....Like they just want us to buy more expensive stuff instead of fixing it so we do not have to.  We have plenty of other grains that are gluten free, we have plenty of other alternatives for wheat. Why not fix the disease that has tons of other complications that lead to other AI issues, food intolerance issues, and allergies.   


Diagnosed Issues
Celiac (Gluten Ataxia, and Villi Damage dia. 2014, Villi mostly healed on gluten-free diet 2017 confirmed by scope)
Ulcerative Colitis (Dia, 2017), ADHD, Bipolar, Asperger Syndrome (form of autism)
Allergies Corn, Whey
Sensitivities/Intolerances
Peanuts (resolved 2019), Cellulose Gel, Lactose, Soy, Yeast
Olives (Seems to have resolved or gone mostly away as of Jan, 2017), Sesame (Gone away as of June 2017, still slight Nausea)
Enzyme issues with digesting some foods I have to take Pancreatic Enzymes Since mine does not work right, additional food prep steps also
Low Tolerance for sugars and carbs (Glucose spikes and UC Flares)
Occupation Gluten Free Bakery, Paleo Based Chef/Food Catering

Trying to change a human's genes is way more complicated and scary than working a plants.  So many things that could go wrong!
