If the link doesn't work it is under the health section. Or search the site for 'gluten' and the article pops up.

I listened to the story, then read it. I'm not sure what I think of it. Though they quickly mention Celiac, they completely write off the idea of gluten intolerance, and seem to be focusing on paranoia over food ingredients. I have a hard time believing there are that many people out there that would be eating gluten free if they didn't have to be.


Gluten free since 10/05

I had the same impression when I heard the story with the inolerance portion. Although, they did say that if you feel better you should definitly stay with the diet but it sounded like a choice and not the actual health issue it is.

And at least celiac disease was mentioned.

I believe. My sister-in-law is on a new diet about every six months. Last summer it was the blood type diet that told her to eliminate wheat. She had no symptoms and no lab tests. She just saw it as a way to lose weight.

Didn't work. :lol:

I took a look at that eat for your blood type book from a coworker who thought that she was helping me. Any way I am A pos and it tells me to eat Wheat and other grains like Barley, fruits and veggies Tomatoes were highly recommended for my blood type. Well for one don't like tomatoes and I simply can not eat the things they make me sicker than eating something with gluten. I ate a dish at my mom's that had tomatoes in fresh ones (I should have know she loves the stuff) she thinks that is all in my head for not liking tomatoes for one. I was soo sick from the tomatoes all week 4years ago that I vomited all day and D for 3 days and felt like I was 10 months pregnat I was bloated so bad along with the gas traveling my body and trapped in my body. it was horrible now if anything has tomatoes I can take them out with out any problem especially if they don't have the tomatoe seeds in it. If it does don't stand behind me not pretty.
