Fascinating study on Gluten Sensitivity published in The Wall Street Journal

Good afternoon!  I just found this article and it is fascinating!  To all of my friends who I have talked to about a gluten free diet possibly helping with the relief of various different health ailments, check this article and study out.

"For the first time, we have scientific evidence that indeed, gluten sensitivity not only exists, but is very different from celiac disease," says lead author Alessio Fasano, medical director of the University of Maryland's Center for Celiac Research.  (from article)

"Although much remains unknown, it is clear that gluten—a staple of human diets for 10,000 years—triggers an immune response like an enemy invader in some modern humans."  (from article)
***Particularly interesting is the last line of the article... a direct quote from Ms. Kupper.  Oh how I wish I could send this to some people to broaden the awareness!  (ie, doctors and their offices who made me feel like I was going nuts) 

I'm not going to copy and paste that quote because I want you to read the  line from the article itself.  
Have a great day.

  1. Such a great post. So important. We are on the journey of elimating artificial colors, stuff like red 40, yellow 5, blue 1, artificial flavors and preservative. Its a long road but its easier traveled with blogger friends!
