Is There A Magazine You Trust And Like?

Recommended Posts

I've picked up a couple, but not sure who to trust for info. I'd love to know the ones you like and why. How do you know the info is correct and medically based?

I subscribe to Living Without and like it. It's informative and even though it has a lot of recipes, I rarely use them (I might be more inclined if I was cooking for a family, but I live alone). I trust them to have accurate info. If you wish, you can sign up for their weekly emails. http://www.livingwithout.com/

Yes I get that one. I like it a lot. The only thing I thought was not so good was the article about the women and her yoggi in this month's. That pretty much discredits it if I wanted to show anything in it to my kids' school. I was kind of disappointed there. I don't think religion has its place in this magazine or dealing with celiac disease.

Could you remove the "offending" article?

Honestly, this sounds like a great way to educate people about differences. Including teaching kids that people are different (ie some have Celiac, some follow different belief structures). I didn't think the article did much more than show how one person deals with Celiac, not about religion.

If you are looking for somethign to show to your kids' school to educate them about celiac it would be better to show them somethign from a peer-review journal article or a respected medical institution. Try the Univesity of Chicago Celiac Disease Center http://www.celiacdisease.net/ Or even articles written on the homepage here at celiac.com if you want to give them information.

I have not read the magazine except online but from what I gather about it the goal of the magazine is more to give recipes and moral support to people struggling with the restricted diet. An article about religion seems to be perfect to me to accomplish that goal. I don't practice the religion you mentioned, but my faith does help me through rough times in dealing with this disease. Unless the article said that she wasn't sticking to the diet because of her religion or something like that I don't see how someone practicing their religion in order to deal with celiac "discredits" celiac as a real medical condition.

I can't speak for the others, but my feathers were not ruffled at all by what you wrote. I totally get that you don't want you kid's school to think this is just some fad or lifestyle choice. You want them to take it seriously so you kid won't be poisioned. I want people to take it seriously too. That's why I suggested alternate sources if you are looking to educate. I hope you find what you are looking for and they take you seriously!

Thanks Gluten Free Mama for the web site. It is perfect. It is so good you should have it on the home page here. They have a new e-book. Good read.
