Race for fix to celiac disease underway in Boston

Boston Globe

An autoimmune disease triggered by gluten proteins in wheat, barley, and rye, celiac disease affects some 3 million Americans. Untreated, it can destroy digestive tract tissue and can lead to anemia, osteoporosis, infertility, neurological dysfunction ...

Unfortunately the Boston Globe website will not let me return to the full page access when I tried to, after checking to see if anyone left any comments under that story.  :angry:   There is not yet a cached version I can get to from a search engine. <_<

 

The title is awful.  This has nothing to do with making bread any different, or "safe," it is about creating a pharmaceutical product.

  

More unfortunately, Dr. Anderson, the vaccine developer, in the story is quoted as claiming a gluten free diet is less nutritious than a regular one.  At the same time he says patients "struggle" with gluten free diet....  these disease researchers who are "hooked on wheat" do us NO favors when they criticize the only true, effective treatment that is available for celiac disease at the current time, a real gluten free diet, and the only effective treatment that will be available for the MANY MORE millions of gluten intolerants who will not be getting a celiac diagnosis.  If they were advocating right now in the present for better gluten free food labeling standards, (and that doesn't mean telling us processed codex wheat starch at 20ppm is "celiac safe," :angry: )  and better manufacturing processes to avoid gluten cross contamination in American foods, they could be positively effecting and making healthier a high number of sick people. 

 

Assuming that the United States is too far gone to be able to guarantee genetic purity in foods in a future that includes a lot of imports, so we must now invent pills and vaccines for potentially just a third of the population to be able to eat the grain products of the future, is truly mind- boggling.  Couple this mindthink that a pill or vaccine can fix cross contamination, with the ongoing attacks on organic agriculture AND the necessity of gluten free for some, by segments of the so- called "science community" in cahoots with the GMO lobby, and it is a real tribute to the total lack of common sense when it comes to the practical application of "progress."   We don't even have the luxury of FDA rules that Pharmaceutical MEDICATIONS must disclose allergens or gluten -  how messed up is THAT ?  :ph34r:

    • I didn't mean my world fell apart because of celiac but because of something else. Finding out about celiac disease actually gave me hope.
    • @PosterboyOne thing is though I never get heartburn. And this only happens when I've consumed something for consecutive days, like I had the bananas and too many nuts. But if PH has something to do with it then maybe when I'm eating more vegetables and broth that's why I usually feel much better, it's more alkaline. On a ph urine test whenever I'm feeling like this I ALWAYS have a reading towards the acidic part. When I feel better it always goes towards the alkaline level and usually in the ideal level. Part of it started when I was under high stress in the first place. A few years ago. I couldn't eat as much/well because I was very worried about things. The realization about celiac came later but basically my world fell apart and I've fought but never felt really okay again. Then at the worst before I knew about celiac disease I was vomitting for days. Now I can eat many more foods but it's still very touchy if I don't strictly eat vegetables, broth, lots of water and small amounts of fats and protein. I'm scared to take anything artificial. I've only recently been able to take very small amounts of probiotics. Is there no way to repair your stomach acid without taking pills? Would going on a strict alkaline diet help?  I read everything you wrote except the link which I don't know if I can concentrate right now. Thank you.
    • I have seen this a few times....run a gluten free bakery....one of my previous customers has the disease, but he gawks at my prices and then goes eats from other stores and consumes gluten products.....I tried offering freebies left over items to get him to switch....been watching him degrade over the past 3 years. He now walks...odd like Frankenstein with locked knees and a wobble and seems be much less active not appearing at this job few days a month now....I do worry about these people. Celiac effects everyone different some violently, others do not see the damage or have grown so use to the issues that they consider them normal. It is a sad thing to see. I have seen improvement in my own body following a strict diet and regime and see major consequences when I trip ......I can not imagine anyone cheating but my reactions are bad with many side effects. Celiac being a AI disease can cause other secondary complications I am all to aware of if  you cheat, mess up.
    • I don't know, it's probably best described as a lot of bile, sometimes yellow, sometimes green (sorry) and a lot of mucus (sorry_) and when I eventually throw it up  (if it gets to that point) it's burning in my throat, so I equate it with acid. Also because of the term "antacid" I think of it as a lot of acid but I guess it's a lot of bile, mucus and I thought the extra stomach acid produced dealing with whatever food I ate. I've done the wrong thing though because now I'm in the pain I was dreading, with swollen eyes and everything and really bad depression now and hopelessness. I keep feeling like it's all futile and too late. That however hard I try I can't figure everything out in time to be well.
