  1. I know that this has been mentioned today in another Cheerios thread, but I would like to make sure that everybody sees it. This is a huge embarrassment for General Mills, and I hope that they train their employees properly in the future so that an incident like this never happens again. It's a Class One Recall. http://www.cnbc.com/2015/10/05/general-mills-recalls-cheerios-for-allergen-issue.html http://www.cheerios.com/Articles/Gluten Free Cheerios.aspx?gclid=CjwKEAjwv8iwBRC35-_e8aPqwCESJAB8khP9ccH4T_ileNgMznUDeqkHQ6TbQuw9SM21J52j52zWNRoC6vLw_wcB&gclsrc=aw.ds I have several boxes which were not on the list, but I don't know whether previous boxes were. We called General Mills, and they don't know where the boxes went, there's no tracking available. The cross-contamination issue happened in their Lodi, California plant, so I doubt that it came to NYC where I live. I have had digestive issues lately, but I've been sick with a very bad cold and it could be from the medicines, or a stomach virus - but for all I know, I could have been glutened and I've been eating "gluten-free" Cheerios every day.
  2. I've been eating Tinkyada pasta products for years and never had an issue. They make a number of shapes and styles, mostly based on brown rice, and several organic varieties. My favorites are Spaghetti Style (brown rice, water), Spinach Spaghetti Style (brown rice, spinach powder, water), and Vegetable Spirals (brown rice, carrot powder, tomato powder, water).
  3. Thanks. When there's not enough bone left to place an implant, as was my case, they must do bone grafts, which adds a considerable amount of time, and visits, to the process.
  4. I've found that goats milk is much easier to digest than cows, and it's a fact that the casein is much less in goats milk. I buy canned powdered goat milk as well as ice cream, cheese and yogurt that are also made from goats milk, and they're all delicious.
  5. In order to help someone, or understand their situation and history, sometimes it is necessary to see a member's previous posts. When I click on their user name, and Posts, all it shows is two posts, even though they are supposed to have posted more. Is there a way to see them all and pick from the list, like there used to be on this forum? Thank you.
  6. Thanks, Gemini! I'm sure that you are correct that the digestive upsets were caused by the materials used for making impressions, which remain in place for over five minutes in addition to any additional debris, which I didn't get a chance to brush away until I returned home. These two implants feel very similar to the bridge they replaced, perhaps a little stronger due to the addition of the bone grafts below, which they are attached to. I've had them for almost three weeks, and I'm still not yet used to chewing food on that side, lol. Hope your 3rd implant is as good as the previous ones.
  7. I'm pleased to report that I finished my dental implant procedures several weeks ago, and so far the two implanted teeth are fine. It took about ten months from start to finish, which was four months longer than I originally thought it would take. There were no complications, other than perhaps a bit of sickness from a regimen of very powerful antibiotics the periodontist had me on for a week, and a few bouts of digestive upsets which I can't say were, or were not, caused by substances used during the tooth-fitting process. I checked with the drug manufacturers that all the Rx drugs I was given were gluten-free, before using them.
  8. I've been drinking Corona Extra for a couple of months, no more than one bottle at a time, several times a week, with no problems. Several studies of gluten in beer have found Corona Extra to have gluten levels at or below 5 ppm, considerably less than the strict gluten-free standard of less than 20 ppm. In Mexico, where it is manufactured, it is labeled as gluten free.
  9. We had to get my 85 y.o. mother-in-law out of her 9th floor apartment, in a large complex near Coney Island, which is without power, heat, gas and water, by taking her down the dark stairwell in her wheelchair and then transporting her to our place several miles away by car. Two security officers from her building did the carrying of her in the wheelchair. It was pitch black and I held the flashlights. The police, FD, and EMS workers will not help unless it's a life-threatening emergency where hospitalization is required - which is unfortunate but necessary due to the extensive amounts of severe emergencies. Many more people are in far worse situations than this, and we were lucky that we had a neighbor with a car and gasoline to assist.
  10. Dr. Oz holds a position at Columbia University Medical Center in NYC, which is also the home of the Celiac Disease Center, headed by Dr. Peter Green, one of the world's top authorities on Celiac. Dr. Green has appeared on other TV shows, such as the View, but not on Dr. Oz as far as I know. I question why Dr. Oz didn't get Dr. Green, or one of the other doctors at the Celiac Disease Center, to appear on his program.
  11. The Dr. Oz show had a guest today that was demonstrating some gluten free recipes, which included oats in two out of three of the dishes, and no mention was made that the oats must be certified gluten free.
  12. Dr. Oz is having a show about gluten on Thursday, Sept. 27. His website uses the term "gluten allergy", which is not very encouraging. http://www.doctoroz.com/episode/gluten-secretly-destroying-your-health
  13. I've recently begun using All Natural Goat Milk Protein, by Jarrow Formulas. It's a complete powdered protein, mixes easly with water or juice using a small mixer, and also contains pro-biotics which aids digestion. Very glad I found this, as I've been looking for such a product that does not contain cow's milk for a while.
  14. Pizza

    Bisquick Pancake and Baking Mix, Gluten Free version, is delicious - and directons for making pizza crust with it are on the box.
