  1. Hi, I recently had an upper endoscopy which revealed "mild increase lymphocytes but no villous blunting - marsh grade 1". This is a big improvement over what I experienced 8 years ago when Celiac was originally diagnosed, but I'm wondering if it's normal to continue to have these lymphocytes in the gut, or whether that's an indication that there's still gluten exposure. Does anybody have experience with this? Thanks. H.
  2. I just came across this article with some very credible evidence on the link between the pesticide Roundup developed by Monsanto and the increase in Gluten Intolerance and Celiac disease. You can find more about this study here, with a link for downloading the whole article: http://sustainablepulse.com/2014/02/19/roundup-linked-global-boom-celiac-disease-gluten-intolerance/#.UxBTGV5z-sQ Now, my question, is when and how a class action suit by people suffering from Celiac Disease and GI can proceed. I know legal action against Monsanto is normally an exercise in futility, but for symbolic value I would very much like to participate in some response to these findings.
