Scientists Making Fibers (fabric) Out Of Wheat Gluten

Recommended Posts

well isnt that enough to get the hair on the back of your neck up....my first thought was everyone with any of the disease connected to gluten should shot off a email to this company and maybe inlgihten them on how this will affect alot of people world wide.....being just recently diagnosed for starters i didnt even know celiac disease existed now making friends and family aware of my condition i was surprized of the lack of knowledge of it....not only in my immediate family the general public as well....bottom line is there not aware of any diseases or intolerances the public can have to gluten....there only concern is making that all mighty dollar...profit..profit...profit....

I do not have a skin reaction. That is why my Celiac was overlooked at first. The IgE antibodies are what causes a rash. Just because you do not have a skin reaction does not mean you do not have the allergy. Most people get skin testing done, but it is not accurate. It really is a waste of money.

Oh, now there's a death stroke for the human race - toxic atmosphere. So besides the holes in our intestines, they want to put holes in the ozone layer with gluten too...

Can Man even get any more stupid?

Well said rice guy! I was just thinking....hemp not wheat. PLEAZZZZZZZZZZEEEEEEEEEEE.

Dear RiceGuy,

LOL! I agree! People are becoming stupid more and more every day. Maybe it is because they eat gluten. It might be brain fog or something. What's next, ugly politicians? We could go blind tomorrow! What if that is the last thing we see, and it is etched in our mind? We could go crazy and bash our brains out with an ice pick! :blink:

Sincerely,

This whole thing is an eye opener for me.....soy, casein, gluten. :o:blink:

Hopefully this won't go anywhere.

They need to have truth in labeling for clothes now too. :P:lol:

Unfortunately, soy fibre clothing already exists...and it looks like corn clothing does too. Not surprised about the desire to do the same with wheat.

who already has trouble with many fibres other than cotton

So does the clothing that has food fibre in them say so?

This is really irritating :angry: .......could be in more than one way. :P

I wouldn't look at it as being food fibre so much as being plant fibre. After all, cotton, linen and hemp are from plants too...and people could also be sensitive/allergic to them, and be sensitive to synthetics too. However, I believe it would be required to list the contents in the clothing.

As far as I can tell, the clothing is typically marketed as being made from these fibres, and isn't that widely available yet. I was surprised when I stumbled upon soy and seaweed fibre clothing at lululemon.com. I'll have to watch out for it when I shop in their brick & mortar store. :unsure:

Well, I guess we should all be careful not to bump into anyone at the mall .. you never know what they might be wearing.

Sad they're making clothing from the top 8 most common allergies (or are they just the top 8 food allergies?).

Yes, they're the top 8 food allergies. Though it doesn't mean that the food allergens won't cause skin reactions too, especially if you're wearing it against your skin for hours at a time. I'd bet that the top airborne allergens are pollens (of which grasses - like wheat - can be one.) :)

This topic made me think about the glue in band-aids....what's in that? In my old age I am very, very allergic to the glue in band-aids....I am not celiac, my husband is. I can only imagine what wearing "food products" will do to skin that's sensitive to it.

Adhesives contain all sorts of ingredients...it can be tough to track down the source of reaction. For myself, I found out I'm allergic to potassium dichloride (AKA chromium, chromate, chrome, chromite, potassium dichromate) which is used in some (many?) adhesives and glues (chromium is also found in a long list of other common products) and is a likely cause of my reactions to some brands of adhesive bandages.
