I have had experience with my son who develops an allergy to gluten. Thanks for this article. Holly and Dr. Leffler, this is a very good article by Dr. Mark Hyman MD which summarizes the problems with modern wheat for everyone, beyond just those with celiac disease.
When I share this information, such as the article above or information from Dr.

Somebody has to be absolutely kidding! This is NOT the mid sixties. Who is sponsoring the writing of this kind of misleading information? Just one point: there are at least 3 million of celiacs. I was not diagnosed until I developed severe ataxia. This is a setback for science and medicine, sadly. This article is a form of representation of this. How hard is it for people to eat whole, healthy food, instead processed, refined, starchy, modern wheat-filled stuff?
Why do B vitamins and fiber have to be found in fortified bread? Please look more broadly at this situation. There is so much more science and information available about the problems with modern wheat…not just for celiacs. We know whole wheat bread has a higher GI index than table sugar and that is just one small example of the problems with modern wheat. This is the type of medical advice that the big brains at Harvard Medical School are dispensing now. So what, I should be embarassed that I gave up up Raisin Bran?
Stay in the closet over the fact that I no longer eat Kraft dinner? Screw that. Why have all your skin conditions vanished? I will also tell them to stop listening to idiots like Strawbridge and Leffler and start taking control of your health and well being. You said…. With over ,, people in the USA, there would be over 2,, people with celiac disease.
I hope that Harvard faculty know how to check their facts, or correct their errors once pointed out. Its propelled me into a healthy weight range and made several annoying conditions simply disappear.
Im shouting it from the roof tops. The reason you suggest that i should is equally so and certainly makes one wonder what your real reason could be. More anecdotal evidence- I know, I know, statistically annoying but nevertheless, true. My skin looks fabulous. Correction of hair loss. Correction of irregularity. More energy. Noticeable reduction in appetite. Better sleep. Improved ability to pay attention. We eat whole foods. So the savings in the school lunches, headache medicine, and TUMS, not to mention the improved quality of life, means following this way of life is not hard at all.
Ditto for us…we eliminated grains. Dropped 20 pounds in 30 days. Eating fresh whole unadulterated real food. Processed food is just evil. Please give us links to the research you used to write this article. We would like to analyze that research ourselves. We may or may not arrive at the same conclusions you do. Great day in the morning!! How did our species manage to produce viable offspring before the agricultural revolution?! This article is not only wrong, it is blatant misinformation!
Harvard Health had some degree of my trust until now! Glidens are the culprit and are in every bite since the Green Food Movement altered wheat in the 60s in order to increase wheat crop yields tenfold! Yield increased along with the glidens and thus the inflammation that goes along with the glycemic spike. The answer is not to switch to gluten free bread and pasta, the answer is to switch to healthier grains like quinoa and eat less processed foods! Part of your misinformation is the scare that eating healthier costs more! To me, the most telling thing about this blog post is not the misinformation it hands out — it is the complete lack of rebuttal to all the criticism it has received.
This is very similar to what happened when the grain lobby reviewed Wheatbelly; normally, the posts on their blog get about, say, six comments. That one got Perhaps if they ignore the comments hard enough they will simply disappear, LOL. Anyway, this post does the same thing. Holly, if you have something to back up your claims, show it to us. Otherwise, your silence speaks for itself.
The AMA generates hundreds of billions of dollars on the fact that we are ill, and it is in their best interest to keep us that way. An FDA application is currently pending for such an application of naltrexone. A serum test for the zonulin protein will be commercially available near-future. Fasano tells me.
This all comes to a head in our time because agribusiness and agricultural geneticists have been busy changing the genetics of wheat, e. The quadrupling of celiac disease, for instance, is largely explained by the enrichment of the Glia-alpha 9 gene in modern wheat, virtually absent from the wheat of This is just ONE of the thousands of changes introduced into the genome of modern wheat in the cause of increased yield-per acre.

To argue that wheat products are necessary for B vitamins and fiber and to ignore all the other issues that now surround modern wheat is, well, ignorant. Unfortunately, the readership of this Harvard publication and the patients of physicians like Dr.
Leffler will be deprived of real insights into this phenomenon of agribusiness-altered wheat. People like Ms. Strawbridge help perpetuate the ignorance that prevails among healthcare providers. When my daughter was 4 years old she had various digestive problems. My doctor did a full range of blood tests including a celiac panel. Everything was negative so she was treated with meds. Eventually she needed more and more and more meds and had more and more and more problems, but still no diagnosis0. We had previously eliminated various foods with no improvements so I decided to eliminate wheat and gluten even though the famously unreliable celiac panel was negative.
Within a week we had stopped all meds for reflux, constipation, and the undiagnosed skin problems on her bottom. Other problems she just lived with. Within 6 weeks everything had cleared. She has had trial amounts since then so that the doctor could have another celiac panel done. She wound up with bleeding skin lessions and in the ER for severe constipation.

So thank you to all who have spoken up. Please continue to spread your message and inform other people. Again thank you to all who spoke up. And maybe I should thank the author of this article too because it sure has gotten people talking about their experiences. Yet, it has been life changing for me too. Apart from that, we are seeing what happens when a grass-roots no grain pun intended revolution occurs when people take back the responsibility for their health and the health of the dear innocents like your daughter.
Tough doughy pizza for them!! Wow… where do you begin… this condescending, patronizing superiority is so off-putting, I want to spit! So she thinks her readers are children?!? I, personally, told my husband of my dietary choice reduce carbs and eliminate all wheat which he decided to follow as well. Assorted skin rashes visibly improved.
These are my facts. The only difference was the diet and I now take Vitamin D3 capsules. Thank you.
