Dr. Oz Today Is gluten-free Stuff

Recommended Posts

ok I stand corrected however it is a fun rumor to spread lol B):unsure:

Corrected, yes. But NO, NO, NO....it is NOT fun to spread false rumors, inaccurate information or ongoing false myths. WHY would you want to do that.

Many people here are struggling to be healthy. Your humor is very misplaced.

Lisa you say it's a myth, but I too believe envelope glue has gluten. I will surely stand corrected if you can tell me how you know for sure or point me to the proof that debunks the myth. B)

If you have a confirmed source of an envelope manufacturer who uses gluten in the adhesive, please, please, share it with us. In almost twelve years on the diet I have yet to find a single one. A negative cannot be scientifically proven--I invite you to offer positive proof of gluten.

I have made this offer before, many times. I am still waiting for the first proven case of gluten in adhesive. Until I find that example, like Lisa and others, I call it a myth. The burden of proof is in your hands. Show us a verifiable case where the adhesive contains gluten, and I will change my mind.

In the mean time, if you feel better using an alternative moisture source--for whatever reason--do so.

It's more important to regain the original topic. :)

Frankly, I find most of those TV shows which "touch" upon a subject and nibble a little bit around the edges, but never get to the core, very frustrating to watch, and I do not do so. I have no wish to grind my teeth while watching something that has been all dumbed down and distorted for "general" viewing and entertainment rather than the dissemination of accurate information. There now, doesn't that sound really stuffy and snooty?? :lol: No, I did not and will not watch Dr. Oz's show. :D

As far as the envelopes are concerned, there are envelopes that you peel off the paper and stick. No licking required... :P

No, it doesn't sound snooty! It sounds about right.

And I agree.

I feel very much the same way about other issues, such as recycling. The issue is covered so superficially, and we never get beyond the beginner's level to move on to the real heart of the matter.

I agree 100%!

Yeah, they still do make them. :lol: I found myself scrounging around the house just to find one the other day. I use them so infrequent now.
