Celiac-Proof Bread? Genetically Altered Wheat Could Be Safe For The Gluten ...

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.

    • Sometimes when those chilly winds begin to blow, and the temperatures fall, the days get visibly shorter, what we need and what we want is comfort food. Well, look no further than this simple, easy twist on scalloped potatoes. A little ham and a bit of cheese work wonders to turn that old favorite into a meal all its own. View the full article
    • Good luck with the holistic doc. I saw a naturopath for months who set me on a good path until I couldn't afford all the supplements anymore. Be careful with that. I found nothing helped me more than decent whole food and good quality vitamins. And of course sleep and lots of water!
    • Kirsty, do you have copies of the blood tests & biopsy reports? If not, get them. It's always a good idea to get copies of tests so you can refer to them later. If you have them or get them, you could post them here. It makes a difference whether you were given the full celiac panel and how many biopsies were taken from what portion of the small intestine. Also, why did you have a biopsy? Did the doc suspect celiac? What was the reasoning for doing that? Honestly, a   lot of your symptoms when you stop gluten sound like gluten withdrawal. It's something most of us experienced. Use the search box here & put in gluten withdrawal. You get a ton of threads.
    • Keep eating the bread. Get your primary care doc to do a full celiac panel although I will mention that depending on your insurance, some require you to go to a GI to get the full panel. Here's the list: Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgA
      Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgG
      Anti-Endomysial (EMA) IgA
      Anti-Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA
      Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and IgG
      Total Serum IgA 
      Also can be termed this way: Endomysial Antibody IgA
      Tissue Transglutaminase IgA 
      GLIADIN IgG
      GLIADIN IgA
      Total Serum IgA 
      Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and IgG
    • I often get rapid heartbeat after meals that raise the blood sugar. But especially so after eating gluten, which is only once a day now. Sometimes I have days where it won’t get up or falls too fast, other days it gets and stays to high. In general, the more inflamed or stressed (usually from my cycle) I am, the more the blood sugar shoots up. Most important is that when I stop all gluten, it won’t get worse. I am asking a doctor for help. Endocrinologist did not take it seriously. I often have blood sugar problems without extreme values. The gastreneterologist did not think gluten was the thing to stop, but wanted me to try anti allergy medication, which made me more ill. Now I am going to see a holistic doctor, who is specialised in adrenals, female hormones and food issues. Maybe she can have a chat with my gastroenterologist. I need the backup of a doctor. Victoria, I am so glad you got over it. I don’t care if it takes a year. As long as the stomach and gut problems and itching subside.
