  2. My Mother was diagnosed with this disease a few weeks ago, and I'm trying to help her determine what she can and can't eat. She love's to eat popcorn but is not sure if it is allowed on the diet. Is microwavable popcorn okay? Also, is shrimp okay, the ready-to-eat store bought variety? Some of the books that I've looked at concerning the diet are rather confusing and seem to contradict one another. Can you recommend a really good book that covers the subject completely? Thanks in advance, and forgive my ignorance --- I'm kind of caught in the middle of this thing and still have a lot to learn. Best. Rad
  3. I do not have Celiac Disease, but my Mother has been diagnosed as having it. She is doing fairly well at managing her diet, but it seems to me that she is becoming overly concerned/obsessed with certain issues relating to her condition. My question is this: to what degree must my Mother be concerned with cross-contamination? For example: If a label on a loaf of bread declares the bread to be gluten-free, is it safe to assume that the bread has not been cross-contaminated with, lets say, wheat dust from some other product being produced nearby? Lets suppose that this cross- contamination HAS occurred. Would this presumably immeasurable amount of wheat dust really contribute to the condition in an adverse way? Thanks, Rad
