text of bill HB 549

97th General Assembly-

 

 


            Section A. Chapter 407, RSMo, is amended by adding thereto one new section, to be known as section 407.322, to read as follows:

            407.322. By January 1, 2014, a manufacturer or wholesaler selling or offering for sale in this state personal care items, including shampoo and conditioner, shall include on its label of such items whether the items contain gluten.

 

____________

 

The problem with cut and paste is that now I'm stuck in the last style from the house.mo.gov website. 

 

Anyway, as a lover of simplicity, I still find this bill lacking.  For one thing, it makes no mention of OATS, (sativa) which are found in numerous lotions, shampoos and conditioners, and can be just as big a culprit because they are frequently cross contaminated with wheat family (triticum) glutens because of how grains are grown, harvested, stored, sorted and processed.  Also, a small percentage of celiacs cross react to even gluten free oats, but the contamination issue is the bigger problem.   The bill could be made better by adding "and oats" to the end of it.  This doesn't really change the status of anything, because frequently personal care item manufacturers boast about the supposed benefits of "oats" right there on the front of the labels, but it is the HIDDEN, undisclosed oat content, just as the hidden wheat, rye, and barley, which can be a problem.   Also, obvious to us, but perhaps not to the well- meaning bill sponsor, you could still end up with a personal care item loaded with wheat germ oil (which is supposedly gluten free, due to processing which supposedly removes the offending gluten protein causing the auto immune reaction) and oats, and yet end up have the manufacturers declaring on the label "GLUTEN FREE !" <_<  :rolleyes:  :blink:

    • Teresa,  You posted this same question yesterday.  You did get a response, but you did not answer the questions asked which might help you.  We can not diagnose you over the internet.  We are not doctors, but just people who can not consume gluten.  We share tips, our personal experiences, and ask questions about the gluten free diet.   If you have or suspect DH, read through the DH section for coping strategies.  Keep to the gluten free diet.  Talk to your doctor!  It might NOT even be related to celiac disease!  
    • My suspicion is dehydration caused by too much fiber. Combined with your cold, fever and perhaps any medications, loss of appetite and the high fiber content of the chia, slowing down the passage of the post nasal drip thereby giving it more time to irritate. I had a similar experience with Graviola during a phase of anorexia, when I would take it without food. By the way, Cold-Eze does work.
    • Welcome!   Let me put your mind at ease.  While is true that some celiacs have fertility issues, it is usually because they are undiagnosed and not being treated.   I think your approach of focusing on your health for the next six months to a year prior to conception is an excellent idea.  Not only will it help insure a healthy pregnancy, but you will be able to handle and care for that baby for the next few decades!   I was in a dedicated gluten free bakery and saw a young family with a six month old baby boy.  I love babies and struck up a conversation.  They said that the wife had been sick with odd issues  and finally got diagnosed with celiac disease.  Six months  this later, she got pregnant after they had been trying for three years.   So, learn the gluten free diet.  Choose healthy foods and try to avoid processed junk foods (not good for anybody), excercise gently, reduce the stress in your life, and I bet you will be fine!   Green stools can be a sight of rapid transit. It could be gluten, a virus, or food poisoning.  Stay hydrated and you will be fine.  Celiacs have leaky guts, so you might have developed an intolerance.  How long have you been gluten free?  Try reading our Newbie 101 thread located at the top of the “Coping” section of the forum.   Take care.  
    • I have granuloma on both of my feet and got them after I had my daughter. She's now 2!! Not eating gluten has not effected it in the least.  I had a major flair up after my colonoscopy and an exploratory surgery, neither had anything to do with my feet . 
    • I have had rolling food intolerance issues and stuff crop up for years....but this time it was seemly triggered by a cold.  I got a cold this weekend standard fever, stuffy nose, coughing gunk up, head pressure, random dizzy spells etc. Anyway I was eating on my chia seed rotation before getting it just fine...but about halfway into my cold I started having vomiting issues after eating. I assumed this was the cold perhaps it was instead a flu. But I got over it now with just a bit of congestion and sore throat left BUT I noticed a pattern in my food diary and confirmed it yesterday...within 30-60mins of eating anything with chia seeds I am puking ....... it seems I got a new intolerance to them? I found this odd that it was seemly triggered by the cold. I guess it could have happened with the compromised system and fever. Has anyone else had a new food intolerance crop up after a cold?
