    More about the war on Gluten:
    Below is an excerpt from and link to an article written by Mark Hyman, MD entitled “Gluten: What you don’t know might kill you.”
    A recent large study in the Journal of the American Medical Association found that people with diagnosed, undiagnosed, and “latent” celiac disease or gluten sensitivity had a higher risk of death, mostly from heart disease and cancer. (i)
    This study looked at almost 30,00 patients from 1969 to 2008 and examined deaths in three groups: Those with full-blown celiac disease, those with inflammation of their intestine but not full-blown celiac disease, and those with latent celiac disease or gluten sensitivity (elevated gluten antibodies but negative intestinal biopsy).
    The findings were dramatic. There was a 39 percent increased risk of death in those with celiac disease, 72 percent increased risk in those with gut inflammation related to gluten, and 35 percent increased risk in those with gluten sensitivity but no celiac disease.
    This is ground-breaking research that proves you don’t have to have full-blown celiac disease with a positive intestinal biopsy (which is what conventional thinking tells us) to have serious health problems and complications–even death–from eating gluten.
    Yet an estimated 99 percent of people who have a problem with eating gluten don’t even know it. They ascribe their ill health or symptoms to something else–not gluten sensitivity, which is 100 percent curable.
    And here’s some more shocking news …
    Another study comparing the blood of 10,000 people from 50 years ago to 10,000 people today found that the incidences of full-blown celiac disease increased by 400 percent (elevated TTG antibodies) during that time period. (ii) If we saw a 400 percent increase in heart disease or cancer, this would be headline news. But we hear almost nothing about this. I will explain why I think that increase has occurred in a moment. First, let’s explore the economic cost of this hidden epidemic.


    Ok, only one more post today on Gluten, I promise. But this is a very typical story from an everyday person:–a-blessing

    Since we are talking about gluten so much, I thought I would share a few facts for new readers. First, I went paleo on January 17th, 2009 and haven’t had a migraine since. This may not be directly related to gluten, as Robb tells me he thinks that migraines are a reaction to hypoglycemia fueled by insulin-resistance. In any event, problem solved. Second, I had some issues that they thought might be celiac disease. If you look at the symptoms for this disease, they include every G.I. affliction under the sun. Reads like a SNL skit about the side effects of perscription medication. Additionally, in order to get tested for celiac disease, the first step is to eat a sh!tload of gluten and make yourself sick, because only then will your body produce the result triggering the diagnosis. In my mind, this begs the question, why not just stop eating gluten all together, why would you make yourself sick just for the doctor to tell you that you are sick? Amazing.
