does anybody think that gluten may never be used again? or a much bigger, better selection will come into play, at most restaurants? people seem to be smartening up, because you turn on the news and what do you hear....illnesses, suffering, shorter life span, obesity

society is scared and should be...everywhere you turn now, drinks have new herbs and vitamins....life water recently has extra herbal content, such as lemon balm, chamomile ect.....and who would ever think that a drink that's so good for you and can taste amazing....i've always been an herbal, open minded person, and people would be shocked if they tried some natural things....let's face it, who would want low quality food over high quality?

ALSO, the worst thing in food it seems is gluten....and even if you're a normal person, it just makes it hard to digest and gives symptoms to everybody...it's only a matter of time until peoples eyes fully open up

i also think, some restaurants just really went down the drain! it seems like when prices go up, food quality goes down and big change needs to happen...people are getting smarter and smarter, so all these restaurants are just loosing business....lots of bad experiences with everyone

it seems as if people are really wanting to be healthy, and are just having bad luck....but think of celiac, a simple thing like cross contamination can make you sick from a meal that's perfectly fine which brings many restaurant issues into play....and celiac is getting so much new news, i see it in newspapers, on tv, websites...more and more info and it seems like people really understand

i'm being open minded, so many illnesses are around that weren't before....look at many many years ago, barely any sickness, lots of peace, no violence...i really think celiac is like many other things, something that just gets forced on you....it'll never be public, but so many kids have illnesses also from mercury being in shots...i saw a big video about it online and wow, it really is an eye opener

i'm new to it all, i'm not trying to whine but i think people just need their eyes opened and faith

i feel like if a cure isn't able to be succeeded, that will happen....prices are skyrocketing, buisness is being low, people are getting mad...but with all this publicity, who knows

There will always be niche markets catering to people with special diets, including gluten-free, in relatively affluent societies--i.e. North America, Western and Northern Europe, and eventually in eastern Asia. I think that we will remain, however, just a blip on the radar screen.

Wheat is grown on ~60 million acres (~24 million hectares) in the U.S. alone. China grows even more. Rice is already grown just about everywhere that is suitable. Corn and soy production are also quite high, and as we know from reading the posts of others, many celiacs are also intolerant of foods made from these two crops. Hundreds of millions of acres worldwide now in wheat (with appropriate harvesting equipment bought with money borrowed from the bank) are not going to be converted to growing quinoa and tapioca.

What we can reasonably hope for is what I experienced while visiting Finland this summer--grocery items clearly marked when they were "gluten-free" (but made with wheat starch) or "naturally gluten-free" (no wheat, barley, or rye at all), and restaurants with their regular menus clearly marked, or alternatively servers who immediately understood the meaning of gluten-free and were prepared to indicate which menu items were safe.

People generally benefit from having as much diversity in their diet as they can handle, and for non-celiacs, that includes wheat, barley, and rye. For those of us with more selective digestive systems, we would be best served by better labels and well-informed chefs and servers.

yeah julie, but it still isn't something that's meant to be digested, so eventually it'll get to everybody....like lots of caffeine may be fine for somebody while it isn't for others, but that person may eventually get worn down from it just based how the body is....but hey, what can you say?

and yeah ken i never thought of it really that way, but i think a definite cure is coming if anything....i just see celiac everywhere like i said, it's more understood and many people are shocked from it all....so who knows, it just seems like it's all getting better and better all around, it really doesn't seem in the dust before...i always see articles about it everywhere, shows...yet again, who knows, but it seems like options are opening up more and more in the meantime

What makes you think gluten was not meant to be digested? If that were the case, people would not survived all this time on spelt, wheat and other grains. I truly believe for most people it is not a problem.

As for the caffeine, I've been consuming tons of it for years. Works for me. So does gluten. I just can't have dairy, eggs, almonds or soy!

I don't think gluten will ever go away. And I don't see any reason for it to, either. I can't eat it, but that doesn't mean no one should. And while I do think there's a large percentage of the population who would benefit from not eating gluten, there's still many people who can eat it with no problem. Kindof like milk - cow milk was never something intended for humans consumption which means many people have lactose and casein issues, but some are just fine. And what about people with allergies like corn? Gluten is going to be a major component in their diets (just like corn is in mine) so it's not fair to them to eliminate gluten, too, if they don't have trouble digesting it.

    I am celiac and eat gluten-free, DF, SF and sunflower free because I'm highly reactive to all 4. I discovered about a year and a half ago that I would have severe and immediate GI reactions, similar to as if I ate dairy, to anything with sunflower/safflower products in it, but I think that's when using the oil became more prevalent too. Strange because I loved sunflower seeds as a kid. I've also linked it to places I've eaten out where everything was fine and then discovered they started using s
    So i recently had a baby and 3 months postpartum I started celery juicing and after juicing my stomach would be in so much pain. So I stopped it for a while and a whole month no pain or issues. I made an apt with a GI doctor to just get my blood work checked everything came back great except the Ema it was 1:20 he said it was strange because all the other Celiac panel test were negative my Ttg and the genetic screening even. So I made an apt with another doctor for second opinion she stated that
Potatoes are good for breakfast! Your concoction sounds pretty good. K, how about this? Peel & dice potatoes, fry them in just enough olive oil to keep them from sticking in a skillet until they begin getting crispy. Toss in diced sweet peppers or maybe chili peppers, onions to soften. I know you're not doing egg yolks b/c of iodine but you can do the whites. Pour egg white on top until the white is done. If you have a steak or some leftover steak, you can heat that on the side. YUM!
