Inhaling straw dust?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Is it an issue to inhale large amount of dust from wheat straw? I keep horses and mucking out does generate lots of dust. 

I have gluten ataxia, not celiac. Does this make a difference? Some people with celiac have told me they personally are fine using straw, as it doesn't get into the intestines, but is my condition different? Can gluten in dust particles be absorbed into the bloodstream when it is inhaled? 

Thankyou

I agree with Scott.  Please wear a mask (N-95).  There seems to be evidence of inhaling grain particles:

Even with out evidence (who would pay for such a study), I would not risk it with Gluten ataxia. Although a small intestine can heal, nerves often do not.
