Very good article. Took a bit of concentration to fully understand - I had to read some parts a couple of times, but definately a keeper for my files.

It's definitely the most detailed and comprehensive explanation about what has happened to wheat and also about gene pools that I have ever seen......

That is an interesting article. Thanks Karen :)

If you are interested in this topic, I suggest reading the Paleo Diet by Dr. Loren Cordaine. I've been reading this book and I think that it's great! Here is a link:

Carrie-

So you do like the book? Did you read Dangerous Grains too? Are you trying to do the diet yourself?

I really like the book and I find that the information is quite interesting and that it makes a lot of sense. I "sort of" follow the diet anyway since I am gluten and dairy free; however, I do eat rice, some legumes, salt, and sugar. I am trying to cut back on the salt and sugar though. I'm replacing them with honey and other spices.

I haven't read dangerous grains, is it a good book?

Interesting article. I'm still new with all this but I have some books on the way right now.

Has anyone read the book Guns, Germs, and Steel by Jared Diamond? I'm about a third of the way through this. It actually relates to this article. His position is that the dominance of the Western World (techologically, politically, etc) in recent times can be traced back to a number of factors. One of these factors is food production and the domestication of partiular grains. A whole section is devoted to this subject. There's no mention of things like food intolerances (yet; I'm only 1/3 through) but it does go into detail about some of the topics in the posted article.

Also, I had no idea that things like seizures were linked to wheat problems. Crazy. I had one seizure in high school and they had no idea why. Everything checked out fine. That was about 13 years ago but I've only felt my recent problems (like anemia) for 3 years. I wonder if it's related....

I lost interest when he started talking about evolution. No, thanks. If that's his starting point, I'm not interested in any of the rest of his conclusions.

Thank you for posting that. I will do the same and print it out and read.

One of my great great grandfathers was well know in american history -- he had a plantation and grew wheat. I totally believe without question that there is a direct connection in celiac disease in my family today generation later having a bad genitic gene.

Carrie...you've got to get Dangerous Grains. It was actually the first book I read on this subject, and after having finished about 5 or 6 of them at this point, it's still the best and most eye-opening. Actually, it's a book EVERYONE who eats food ( :lol::lol: ) should read. People need to know this stuff whether they are celiac or not!

    • I am sorry that you are sick!  Ennis has offered some great advice.  With small children, they can be glutening you.  I recall member Jebby getting glutened by her kids.  She worked full time as a neonatologist (premie doctor) and her kids would give her slobbery, adorable kisses, etc.  Jebby had the household go gluten free.  That might be something to consider.  
    • Hmm... my massage therapists use aromatherapy and specifically ask you to inhale several times while they hold it very close to your face and I do have them rub my face (although some people don't like that and don't have it done.) Lotion also ends up on your hands which you could transfer to food you eat afterwards if you haven't washed your hands well (obviously hand washing is key!) But I don't think that is too far of a stretch to think it *could* be injested and to double check to be sure the products used are gluten-free.  And at a salon I realize that they'd wash my hair tilted back but what about product(s) being spritzed on your hair when styled? Rare yes, but I do know I've "tasted" those products before! Ick.  
    • I was noticeably gray at 18. Both of my parents went gray young as well. I have no thyroid problems and I'm pretty sure my celiac issues didn't start until 20 years later....   I started dying it when I was 28. I wanted to look more professional!
    • Celiac disease is not diagnosed by symptoms alone. Why?  There are over 300 of them and many, if not all, overlap with other autoimmune issues or other illnesses.  Learn more about proper testing: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ I am formally diagnosed.  My hubby is not.  His mis-informed doctors told him 16 years  ago to give up gluten.  It worked, but now we do not really know if he has celiac disease or not.  He will be the first to say that I get WAY more support from family, friends and medical.   I am sorry at your doctor gave you the wrong advice.  Now, you must decide if testing is worth pursuing.  I wish you well.  
    • I am considering having my brother - who inherited Daddy's power woodworking tools - plane down my cutting boards and sand the edges enough so I can keep them. The spoons and soup stirring things though will have to be decorative. Breaks my heart. I've had good luck with Merle Norman cosmetics. They have a listing of things that are gluten-free that has helped me. My local store owner was able to get the list and knows what I can use and what I can't.
