75% Swedish & 25% European (possibly Irish???). My Mother is 100% Swedish/ bio-father is the unknown.

He is 75% Swedish and then 25% I don't know...I've heard Irish, but don't know for sure. I tell my kids they are Swedish because my hubby is Heinz 57!! :P My daughter (adopt. from S. Korea) thought she was Swedish too!! :) VERY upset when she found out she wasn't!!

I’ve had three genealogy tests done, at Family Tree DNA, and the results for the “Total” DNA test were:

100% Indo-European

0% African

0% East Asian

0% Native American

Those are the major groups that the world's population belong to, and many people have percentages of more than one type. This is considered accurate, if I remember correctly, for 6 generations back. I don’t think that FTDNA does this particular test anymore.

My direct female line (mtDNA) is type K, which has been traced back to the Austrian/Italian alps some 18,000 years ago. She (the ancestor known as "Katrine") probably was a gatherer - living off of berries, small game, fish, and other easily obtained foods. Here's some more info about mtDNA:

The 5200 year old corpse of the “Iceman”, which was discovered in 1991 by hikers in the Alps, has my mtDNA halpotype ("K"): http://www.american.edu/TED/iceman.htm

I think that this guy definitely didn’t have gluten in his diet, lol! It is believed, due to marks on his body, that these Europeans had used acupuncture thousands of years before the Asians. It has been surmised that he may have been a shaman, due to the herbs that he may have been carrying. It is also believed that he could have died from an attack, possibly from a rival group, due to evidence found during the examination of the corpse.

I have traced, through paper-trail and historical research, my female line back to 17th century England, when she migrated to Massachusetts.

My direct male (Y-DNA) line is E3B, These y-lines are found in Europe, Western Asia (Middle East), and North and East Africa. My ancestor probably migrated up North a very long time ago, during the Neolithic expansion. My great-grandfather came to the U.S. from Germany, or Bavaria, in the 19th century. I have been in touch with other people whose fathers' ancestors were Swedish, Dutch, German and other Northern European nationalities, who also have E3b Y-DNA. http://www.familytreedna.com/surname_join....e&projecttype=G

My genealogy research (paper trail) shows that I have:

British (including several Mayflower passengers)

German

Dutch

Irish

Possibly some French

    • I would say no even then....it belongs in its own little corner in hell. We have had members get sick from cross contact touching and handling paper mache, playdough, and dry wall spackle containing wheat then touching their mouths, or food.....heck you can inhale the powder from the sanding spackle and have it get trapped in the mucus in you respiratory tract to run down your stomach and make you sick......has happened to a few on many occasions.
    • Cross reactivity is a bit of a myth type thing, but we do get food sensitivities and intolerance issues that do creep up and they are always different for each person. A food diary and keeping track of what causes symptoms is what you need to do. Here is a true gluten avoidance list and a article on food sensitivities.

    • Me too. I still get transient lower back pain occasionally when my bladder or colon is full. It goes away immediately on voiding. Regardless of anything other diseases you may have, being wheat free gives you relief so even if not Celiac you are Non Celiac Wheat Sensitive. There are over 200 symptoms that are improved with GFD gluten free diet. Google it. It is an impressive list. In any case, while it is good to have a diagnosis, there is only one treatment, do not eat wheat and deal with the inevitable malnutrition damage.(think Biafra babies 1970.) Most will improve over time. Whatever doesn't improve should be investigated to be safe, but realize that recovery may take years. Wheat flour used should be limited to Paper Mache sculpture and library paste.  
    • Here is a partial list of what I no longer suffer from as a result of not eating wheat. Some like the sleep apnea and gerd and back pain and addiction to alcohol were almost immediate. The foot pain is improved to just numbness sometimes. My long term depression went away when I added vitamin D 10,000 iu a day for a year, but the improvement started almost immediately. Muscle tone and energy improved when I added iodine. one sheet sushi seaweed a day. My Fibromyalgia is controlled with 15 mg oral Prednisone a day. I remember as a kid waking up and having to pick the dried mucuos off the roof of my mouth. That is gone and for the first time in my life I am a nose breather. Drink lots of water to help with the mucous if it is thick. Some mornings mine is like rubber cement. I need to quit smoking now.  You can improve have faith, but healing takes time. Stay the course. A Romaine lettuce salad everyday helped the gut pain. Gerd shortness of breath sleep apnea back pain snoring prostrate hypertrophy contact lens protein buildup night vision improved cataracts reduced head hair growth foot pain sleeping no more than 2 hours at a stretch slow healing no energy. Pretty much bed ridden. 
    • Celiac Disease is damage to the nooks and crannies in our intestines leading to malnutrition, vitamin deficiencies with all the various symptoms that make it so hard to diagnose. Then you add years of the antacids, antibiotics, Tylenol, opioids, alcohol, etc., each with their own particular side effects and damage. Now you've got a toxic environment that kills off the beneficial bacteria increasing malnutrition. Theoretically you can eat anything except gluten. But wheat is so ubiquitous in our diet and economy there are unlimited opportunities for cross contamination. So read the label. Use common sense. If there isn't a label it doesn't have wheat so you can eat. Big Food likes to add wheat to everything because it is addictive and helps them ensure you can't eat just one. Why on earth else would Campbells Tomato Soup have wheat listed as an ingredient? Meantime your body is in distress from malnutrition so you need to be sure to replenish D3, and Iodine for starters and treat and support any other symptoms while you heal. Good nutrition without wheat is the only way to stop progression. And just like chewing paint chips made with lead is bad, so is food with wheat.   well said, doesn't need a label.
