  1. "Sourbread Starter" concerns me as an ingredient. I would not eat anything with this ingredient. I have found, without exception, that there is no way to determine the ingredients in anything with the word starter in the name. If you look up how to make a starter, it always says that you have to...
  2. Eric, I agree with everything that you said. Especially since dairy issues are more correlated with gluten issues than any other allergen is, I would simply have liked to have seen a statement that hydrolyzed whey protein is gluten free, so it is safe for anyone who can tolerate dairy. i would not...
  3. I am just saying that dairy should not be promoted. For instance, many of the recipes given should be dairy free. You also have to keep in mind that anyone suffering from intestinal issues (e.g., chronic diarrhea) is generally told to avoid gluten and dairy, even if test for these foods come back...
  4. Thanks for pointing that out. I was going to say the same thing. It also should be noted that whey is EXTREMELY unhealthy. Dairy is among the worst things that anyone can eat, and things like whey and casein are MUCH worse than milk as they are unnatural concentrations. There is a huge overlap between...
  5. This article is pointless. It does not describe how social media is used. The survey is based on people self-reporting that they use social media. It is automatically biased toward people who use social media as they are more likely to fill out the survey. This article literally provides no information...
  6. I had a terrible reaction to amoxycillin, and I tell doctors that I am allergic to it, but I really think that it was an inactive ingredient. I was never allergic to penicillin before. The drug companies make it next to impossible, and often literally impossible, to find out about inactive ingredients...
  7. I agree with everything (I think) that you say, but you offer no solution. I assume that you would endorse getting healthier by eating better. Avoiding processed foods as much as possible is obviously good, and then there are particular foods which harm us. I would have liked to hear which foods...
  8. I agree. It looks like it would be good, and I would leave out the chicken stock. For those who do not want vegetarian, it would be much better to make your own chicken stock. If you use processed chicken stock, I would do lots of research on whether it is free of any allergies that you are allergic...
  9. This is outrageous. This is pure speculation, and is obviously wrong. Intelligent people do not say that they are gluten sensitive if they are not. They may say that they think that they are gluten sensitive, but I tell people that I am. I often get sick because of hidden gluten that I find when...
  10. Here's something to contemplate. Maybe women are more open to accepting that they might have Celiac. This could skew the statistics. Men seem to think that they are too mocho to have an allergy or sensitivity. I am a man, and I am not that way, but I think men are like that much more than women.
  11. In any follow up article on this, please indicate whether one can be tested without eating gluten.
  12. You can't base your conclusions on the FDA. They make their decisions based on who pays them the most. I remember articles from years ago about how dangerous gluten is for dogs. As at least one of the comments above says, there is no statement that the lack of grain causes the problem. It is also...
  13. Excellent article. I wish you would have added one other piece of information. When someone has certain symptoms that are often caused by gluten, and they are tested for Celiac or gluten sensitivity, and the test come back negative, they should still try eliminating gluten. I would even add that...
