It's unclear just how celiac disease arises, and it can crop up at any point in life. At the moment, the only successful treatment available to patients is lifelong abstinence from gluten. This kind of rigid, lifestyle-altering treatment works, but is ...

This article seems to contradict what I have recently read from the WSU researchers that they would "like" to create a GMO wheat, but they think they would have to quote, jump thru too many regulatory hoops to do so. The article also does not give the source for the statement for the false claim that a wheat- free diet damages the composition of gut bacteria, I've debunked that piece of garbage before, because it was being paid for by the Wheat Lobby who paid some exercise expert hack at an Arizona university to go thru existing literature, make a supposition, and publish that, but of course the claim just will not die off mercifully. If these idiots think that I am going to risk my HEALTH again to eat GMO wheat, just because the Wheat Lobby can't fathom growing another crop for us, they are out of their minds.

I just knew you would have something to say on this one! :)

My first thought was : Great! Just what we need! Another plant modified into some odd Frankenplant!

These people that insist on chasing celiac-"safe" wheat make me think of the Boy Scout 's merit badge pursuit leading to "helping" a little old lady across a street she didn't want to cross.

It's only when a celiac is new that they imagine a future of being able to eat how they always had, whether via new "safe" wheat or a pill, but then once used to gluten-free, know it really isn't that big of a deal.

I also think that any celiac who's looked into AI enough to just know the acronym would be very wary of claims that "this one protein sequence isn't in this wheat so it's safe forever".

It's just not that simple.

You noticed that all the corporate entities we had during the last election on Nov 6 2012 here in CA that were flooding the airwaves and innertubals with their anti - GMO foods labeling invective against Proposition 37 were already using GMO's (mostly in the form of Corn- sourced) in their food and ingredient products ? The (Traditional) Food Industry Hath Spoken, they don't want to label the garbage that they're feeding us, because they fear consumer choice. The FDA shrugs and says maybe one day we'll "getaroundtuit" and do a voluntary labeling rule. The USDA says, "not our problem." Now we are supposed to TRUST THEM on their creation and marketing of an edible product with yet more anonymous, unlabeled protein content that can cause auto immune disease, if they screw it up ?!

SHOW ME THE LABELS !

I can't understand why all these people seem to insist that for some reason we are incomplete people without wheat in our lives. I don't want wheat, I especially don't want frankenwheat. Over and over again we are getting the message from these people that our lives are somehow worth less because we don't eat what exactly what everyone else does. Frankly, I can't imagine eating bread again. Not THAT kind of bread. The smell has started to make me ill. When will these people learn that we are HAPPY without this crap and we don't want them wasting time or money coming up with frankenfoods for us, they should take that money and invest it instead in something like research for a cure. (Like maybe that research for reteaching our immune systems not to be stupid.... I'm paraphrasing of course.)

I agree. My life is no worse for not eating wheat. In fact, it's better. Why must people put so much emphasis on FOOD. Food is not something that makes life worth living. It's nutrition. Until that attitude changes, they will keep modifying everything to make it more attractive to the most number of people. If I had it my way, eating the gluten free way, like our ancestors, would be the norm and gluten eaters would be the minority.

    • I was at a used book sale yesterday and happened to see an old dermatological textbook.  Of course the first thing I looked up was dh just to see what it had to say.  What I read shocked me as well as scared me half to death. The description of dh was right on, severe itching, blistering, bilateral, arms/elbows etc. but there was no mention at all of celiac, wheat, gluten or anything along that line.  The reason they gave for the cause of dh was "a manifestation of an internal cancer," and later it said it results from cancer, usually cancer of the ovaries or one other that I can't remember.  Being a hypochondriac, this was about enough to put me into cardiac arrest. I looked at the publication date and it was printed in 1963 which really isn't all that far back.  Has anyone else ever heard of this?? I thought by 1963 they were quite certain that dh was a form of celiac or did it come way after that? Sorry if I'm freaking anyone out by asking this.  That's not my intent at all, but since cancer is one of my biggest fears I found this rather unsettling.
    • Feeneyja, This will be a little long but I will  try to be brief as possible. See this discussion thread that talks about how Pellagra is often diagnosed as other disease's today because doctor's rarely recognize it today in a clinical setting. Pellagra's is described as the 3 D's if you don't count the 4th D of death if it goes long enough and is not diagnosed in a timely manner. Dementia (Neurological) Digestive (GI problems), Dermatitis issues (Ezcema, Psorsias, Acne etc.) According to mdguidelines website http://www.mdguidelines.com/pellagra indicates that quoting “The diagnosis of pellagra is straightforward when the classic rash is present but may be elusive if there are only gastrointestinal and/or neurological manifestations.” And why I believe in many cases Pellagra goes undiagnosed today.  Because doctor's have forgotten how it presents. A longer researcher article about the neurological presentations of pellagra mention the many ways a Niacin deficiency can present itself. Here is the link https://www.hindawi.com/journals/cggr/2012/302875/ and I will quote some of the neurological/dementia related symptom's of an undiagnosed pellagra patient. "Mental symptoms were wider than dementia, in that depression, fatigue, psychomotor retardation, mania, obsessions, and a whole range of psychoses with auditory and visual hallucinations were well described, along with personality change and sociopathic and drug and alcohol addictive behaviours. Panic disorders were seen as was a general inability to deal with physical or mental stress. Poor brain development such as hydrocephalus or cerebral palsy was also common. Acute delirium or even coma occurred, with some patients having myoclonus and other extrapyramidal signs reminiscent of the spongiform encephalopathies. The dementias of pellagra included features akin to Lewy body, Alzheimer’s, frontotemporal, vascular, and prion diseases. Parkinsonism was also common and a festinant gait was first described in pellagrins. Tremors of various descriptions, including asymmetric rest tremors, were noted and some patients had typical paralysis agitans. Pellagrins had a characteristic expressionless facies, so some signs of parkinsonism were present in most cases. Many features of pellagra closely resemble the nonmotor aspects of PD. The neurological manifestation did not stop there because other degenerative conditions, such as an amyotrophic lateral sclerosis-like picture, were described, with fasciculation of the tongue and upper and lower motor neuron signs. Cerebellar syndromes occurred and vertigo was frequent. Headaches, sensory and pain syndromes, epilepsy, and involuntary movements were noted as well as sleep disturbances. Cord lesions were also seen, as was optic atrophy, so there were multiple sclerosis (MS), like variants." It is me again. You can see the neurological symptom's of Pellagra are severe and wide ranging. Taking Niacinamide 3/day for 6 months can alleviate many of these symptom's if your daughter has subclinical pellagra and the doctor's don't know to look for it. I had deep depression for many, many years and I shudder to think now that only a Vitamin could of helped me 30+ years ago and the doctor's didn't know to look for it. Shoot it isn't just Niacin.  All B-Vitamin's help your stress levels.  IF you have stress B-Vitamins can help your stress levels. I take Folic Acid for Blood pressure problems and it keeps my BP with in a normal range. A article on celac.com discussed this topic in detail a few months ago. https://www.celiac.com/articles/24658/1/A-Differential-Diagnosis-How-Pellagra-Can-be-Confused-with-Celiac-Disease/Page1.html I hope it is helpful.  Good luck on your continued journey. If you have never heard of Pellagra you are not alone. Dr. Heaney discusses why this is so in his online article Pellagra and the 4 D's. http://blogs.creighton.edu/heaney/2013/11/18/pellagra-and-the-four-ds/ If you don't have time to read the whole hindawi article I also suggest this shorter but informative blog about why a Niacin deficiency can cause dementia related conditions. https://pellagradisease.wordpress.com/ Then decide for yourself and your daughter's sake to decide whether to take Niacinamide or not to see if it helps the D's symptom's she is experiencing (Digestive, Dementia etc.) The International Journal of Celiac Disease makes note of this in their research that Pellagra could be contributing to symptom's being diagnosed as Celiac disease today instead of a possible (co-morbid) Pellagra that causes the same symptom's. When they discuss how Pellagra and Celiac disease are related (Co-Morbid) in a Celiac diagnosis are surprised to find that in 58% of Celiac's -- can also be diagnosed with Pellagra. See this link http://pubs.sciepub.com/ijcd/3/1/6/ Quoting 3. Pellagra and celiac disease "The two diseases can be connected in two aspects. 58% of pellagra patients were shown to have malabsorption and many had intestinal pathology on biopsies [36, 37]. Alternatively, Pellagra was described in celiac disease [38]. The skin manifestations in pellagra might have some additional etiologies, since multiple nutrient deficiencies are at the origin of the cutaneous manifestations in celiac disease. The following nutritional deficiencies inducing skin rashes, were describe in celiac disease: Zinc, Iron, Vitamin A, E, B12, niacin, folate, selenium and essential fatty acids [39, 40]." If one is being diagnosed incorrectly the other co-morbid conditions can continue to cause Celiac like symptom's. But if the majority of those who have been diagnosed as Celiac could be helped by taking Niacinamide I see no you reason you shouldn't try it. Or at least research it some more. Again good luck on your continued journey. 2 Timothy 2: 7 “Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things” this included. Posterboy by the grace of God,

    • Color me confused.  I went to Costco yesterday and there were 2 products there that had GLUTEN FREE plastered on the box but then in the ingredients was a: May contain wheat. How is this possible?  How can they still put gluten-free on the box?  We should be able to trust gluten-free labeling no?? And second question:  How many of you would still buy that item?  I REALLY wanted to buy the Island Way Sorbet for my daughter as it is her FAVE.  But I didn't want to take the risk.  Maybe when she is healthier?  I mean it is SORBET?! LOL So frustrating!
    • JMG I have never laughed so hard! This was the best epic comment I've read! Thankyou so much!  Your all teaching me so much! Love the 'my glass to go' idea!! I will be adopting this... can't believe the mucky glasses we must be drinking from! Shocking!  Im still baffled how so many people don't understand cross contamination i.e. The crumbs on the work surface to cut the lime for your tasty beverage!  Your all amazing Thankyou x
