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:
