What you are eating could be causing your disease
and slowly killing you:
Everyone pretty well knows junk food is bad for you, but how could whole wheat
bread, salad with croutons, whole grain pasta or veggie pizza possibly be bad?
Gluten is a proten found in wheat, barley, rye, spelt, kamut, and oats. It is hidden in
pizza, pasta, bread, wraps, rolls, and most processed foods. Clearly, gluten is a staple of
the American diet. What most people don’t know is that gluten can cause serious health
complications and you may be at risk even if you don’t have celiac disease.
Gluten Sensitivity: One Cause, Many Diseases
A review paper in The New England Journal of Medicine listed 55 "diseases" that can
be caused by eating gluten. These include: osteoporosis, irritable bowel disease,
inflammatory bowel disease, anemia, cancer, fatigue, canker sores, rheumatoid
arthritis, lupus, multiple sclerosis, hashimoto’s thyroiditis, and almost all other
Gluten sensitivity creates inflammation throughout the body, with wide-ranging effects
across all organ systems including your brain, heart, joints, digestive tract, and more.
Other food allergies or sensitivities can have the same affect on the body. We cannot
afford to ignore this reality. By failing to identify gluten sensitivity, celiac disease and
other allergy/sensitivities, we create needless suffering and death for millions of
humans on planet earth
A recent 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 cancers. 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 can be helped 100
The problem is that only 1 percent of those with gluten sensitivities were actually
diagnosed. That means 99 percent are walking around suffering without knowing why,
with the wrong diagnosis, dying a slow miserable death, costing the healthcare system
millions of dollars.
