Cancer And Celiac Correlation?

Recommended Posts

Guest digmom1014

Hi-

I was diagnosed with leukemia at age 18 and have now "developed" celiac at age 43, although I'm sure it was earlier than that.

I just got a call from a woman who has a celiac son and he just developed leukemia.

Anyone know if there is some study or something on this?

Thanks-

Sarah

According to the book Dangerous Grains there is a strong correlation between the 2. Once you change your diet and go off gluten and eat less processed foods and sugar that correlation greatly diminishes.

When I was younger I was starting to develop skin cancer however this went away on its own when I changed my diet.


Diagnosed celiac sprue as infant: failure to thrive & pneumonia-back on grains age 4. Began herbs 1971 combating chronic kidney disease/general ill health 1973. Avoid wheat family and "allergens" by 1980. Late 80's doc. diagnosed candida: cave-man diet. Diagnosed degraded myelin sheath 2006; need co-enzyme B vitamins. Discovered celiac fall 2007; finally told diagnosis as infant. Recently found I am salicylic acid intolerant. Ironically can't tolerate most herbs now. Can now eat brown rice & other gluten-free grains (except corn) & even maple syrup & now homeopathic medicine works! Am still exploring the shape of this elephant but I've made progress!

There is a correlation. It has been documented so if you google leukemia and celiac you will most likely have quite a bit pop up.
