Are we as forum members, allowed to respond to these articles here? If not, please delete. I'm new here. I see there is not much conversation here...

but I was saddened by the article somewhat making it sound like it could be damaging to take your child off gluten, especially if they haven't tested for celiac...

I was actually told by my daughter's pediatric GI that he felt it cruel to take a child off gluten esp when other kids get to eat it. Told me right in front of her. I was asking for blood tests with possible biopsy in sight. I was thinking how bad of a parent I would be to not take her off of it and see if it helps her health and body.

She deals with constant constipation and ezcema. His cure? Miralax and mineral oil daily. How is that any less cruel than taking my child off gluten/wheat products to see if it helps her system???

Hmmmm...

I hope others might read the article and respond as well.

Uhm, uh, yeah, we're supposed to comment here if we want. Why would the board owner be wanting to delete a bad article when he can have real life celiacs and gluten intolerants reading them and critiquing all the mistakes, especially when they're that bad.

I have noticed this year after reading dozens of these stories and seeing a few things on video from cable "news" that the Main Stream Media in more than one country apparently has some sort of template for repeating the same misconceptions over and over again. Most of the trash seems to be coming from so - called registered or professional dieticians in the US, the UK, and Canada, altho one of the worst ones was Dr. Nancy Snyderman on MSNBC, (she is their "medical editor", btw) telling a woman that asked that her recently diagnosed celiac husband might not have to stay gluten free for the rest of his life. I was rather astonished there was less outcry over that awful, snotty mistake, if you watch the entire interview you see that "Dr." Snyderman is absolutely clueless on the fact that this is a real autoimmune disease, and not a "lifestyle choice" or "fad diet" being taken up by her neurotic peer group. I felt like I was watching one of the food trolls that lurk on the internet, the ones who tell you there's no relationship between disease and diet, coming out of the closet.

Now on to Dr. Peggy Marcon's bothersome quotes

In fact, she says, gluten-free foods can be quite harmful due to the extra additives and preservatives in gluten-free products like cookies and breads. As well, they are often high in calories

    • Ouch I am sorry . I know how painful bone,  joint, muscle pain can last weeks for me . Hopefully you'll be able to clear it quickly if otherwise you have been healthy this season. As others suggested some TLC , vitamins, mineral to assist may help. I find accupuncture helpful too or massage. As for a gluten-free pizza I can no longer have them due to additional intolerances to milk. I in past days found sabatassos gluten free pizza carried at my local Costco pretty yummy if you can find it.
    • Maybe it was not the chili.  Maybe you are sick with the flu?  Sometimes, we jump to the conclusion that celiac disease is the cause of our current symptoms.  I know I have done this.   Hormel is NOT considered good, but it is gluten free and safe.  I give it to my kid on top of gluten-free pasta or corn chips in her thermos.   Add plenty of cheese and it is pretty good.  Though I admit, I used to think the burritos and strips I purchased at the beach shack as a kid were SO good!  😆 Even bad cooks can make a simple chili.  Follow any recipe, but sub out the spices for Carroll Shelby’s Chili mix which is even certified gluten-free.   My recipe is 2 or 3 pounds of cooked ground beef, 32 oz can of beans (I usually make my own beans), a can of diced tomatoes, and Hatch’s green chili’s.  I suppose you could add some cocoa to change it up.  Do not hold me to this recipe regarding the ratios of ingredients as I do not follow one as my batch size changes, etc.  I cut back on the spices when I see my family sweat!  😆    
    • This is really a general post about alkalinity and being in the news these days. Alkalinity is totally trendy, but I encourage people to educate themselves about this and not rely on trends. I don’t mean to suggest that I know everything there is to know about this, but, for example this site (http://www.foodenzymeinstitute.com/articles/digestion-in-the-stomach.aspx?list=bydate) states: [Certain enzymes are] only active within the pH range of 3.0 to 5.0 and require the acid to maintain that pH. Pepsin is very specific in its action and is simply incapable of digesting food enzymes, which are very large molecules and are more than just protein. This sites (https://www.livestrong.com/article/459954-the-acid-base-balance-in-the-digestive-system/) states Antacids increase the pH in the stomach, which might make the enzymes in the stomach less effective. I think the focus on alkalinity and acidity in our foods currently en vogue is a huge distraction and a big waste of time. To me, it represents the two steps backwards in the notion of progress. I’ll end with Dr Andrew Weil — https://www.drweil.com/health-wellness/balanced-living/healthy-living/why-alkaline-water/ “Don’t waste your money. Alkaline water is being aggressively marketed for its purported health benefits. It is touted as the solution for everything from helping the body better absorb nutrients to reducing the risk of high blood pressure, high blood sugar, and heart disease, as well as boosting energy, helping you lose weight and slowing the aging process. It is also said to be “more hydrating” than any other type of water. Alkaline water is supposed to achieve all this by correcting the body’s pH, its acid-base balance. In fact, the human body needs absolutely no help in keeping its pH constant. “ /rant
    • After my hiatus hernia was diagnosed they advised me to eat small meals spread out across the day, maybe that may help?
    • Ah I've googled it, as you guessed I was thinking of chilli con carne, this is something different!  Sorry I can't be of help.                      ps, no offence, am sure it's lovely but I did find this hilarious: https://deadspin.com/the-great-american-menu-foods-of-the-states-ranked-an-1349137024
