Wheat Fields All Around Me!

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

there are two fields one along side my property and one across the street that I just found out are planted with wheat - Does anyone know if I need to be concerned? along with gut issues I have DH - and I've found out that I react externally from contact with wheat products.

I'm thinking that I need to go away from home the day that the farmer harvests the wheat from his field.

Any thoughts or advice?

thanks!

Debbie

( just another note - I recently helped my husband's aunt recognize celiac disease in herself - her main problem has been migraines and the big "D" - she has been gluten free for the last three weeks and is "cured"! of course she is thanking me profusely... I'm happy to have been able to help her.) this makes about 5 people in the last 6 mos. that I've had a hand in diagnosing.. most of them have been rashes.

I don't really have an answer for you, except to follow your "gut" instincts, heh heh.

Getting the heck out during harvest seems like a smart idea.

BTW, are you by any chance located in the Palouse of WA state, or in Idaho?

I am originally from WA (Go Cougs!), and I know all too well about the rolling wheat

fields in that area.

yes - I was thinking about airborne wheat - what a nightmare- OR since I don't know - stick around dance around behind the tractor and see if it bothers me.. :)

I'm in North Carolina - I thought they planted rye in those fields.. but much to my dismay they are raising my worst foe. :( oh well

Thanks for your input!!

I live in a farming area...Heck, all we HAVE in Saskatchewan is farming!! During the summer/fall you can see so much grain dust in the air that it looks like fog. So I warn you: If i'm exposed to it too much, and breathe it in, not only do I nearly have an asthma attack but I do get glutened.

It is interesting you mentioned the Palouse! We lived in Moscow for almost 9 years. My middle son is being worked up for asymptomatic celiac disease as a reason for growth delay. I have to wonder if having our house surrounded by wheat fields (literally one in our back yard) could be a reason he could have this. He lived there from 8 weeks old to age 8.

I do miss the sea of wheat when the wind blows!

We know several people there with Celiac disease so it got us all thinking.

My husband and I both went to WSU. He, of course being a die hard cougar fan, wants our kids to go there too. I told him last night that they wouldn't be able to attend. He argued with me that "I'm sure it's fine..." I remember what it's like during harvest season. NO WAY they're going there!!!
