interesting....


Husband has Celiac Disease and

Husband misdiagnosed for 27 yrs -

The misdiagnosis was: IBS or colitis

Mis-diagnosed from 1977 to 2003 by various gastros including one of the largest,

most prestigious medical groups in northern NJ which constantly advertises themselves as

being the "best." This GI told him it was "all in his head."

Serious Depressive state ensued

Finally Diagnosed with celiac disease in 2003

Other food sensitivities: almost all fruits, vegetables, spices, eggs, nuts, yeast, fried foods, roughage, soy.

Needs to gain back at least 25 lbs. of the 40 lbs pounds he lost - lost a great amout of body fat and muscle

Developed neuropathy in 2005

Now has lymphadema 2006It is my opinion that his subsequent disorders could have been avoided had he been diagnosed sooner by any of the dozen or so doctors he saw between 1977 to 2003

"This thing has immense potential for social and human destruction." Startling words - but spoken by the father of the Green Revolution, Nobel laureate Norman Borlaug, they are not easily dismissed.

Or perhaps it has the potential for human salvation.

Perhaps if wheat becomes scarce for a bit, or much more expensive, it will not only be easier for us to find safe food but think of all the people doing gluten challenges and not knowing it. If people had to cut it out of their diet, or even go gluten light, perhaps more would realize the negative effects it is having on them.

That is a good point. One has to ask if his quote comes from the perspective of thinking that we have the inability to adapt (though there are many - sometimes more nutritious - grains that grow in the same types of climate as many varieties of wheat) or if there are concerns about it spreading to other cereal grains (which, again, really comes down to a question of adaptation).

That did happen in Europe during WWII, people in Holland and a few other places noticed a huge difference. That is why they started looking into it so much and why it is more known in Europe.
