9 Gluten-Free Grains

From Experience Life

Gluten troubles were once thought to be a problem primarily for those with celiac disease. But recent research indicates that gluten-related disorders extend to a far broader population, and affect far more than the digestive system.

As scientists chip away at the mountain of health problems caused by the modern American diet, a troubling finding is emerging. Gluten, present in our most popular grains, is being linked not only to celiac disease, an autoimmune disorder affecting one out of 100 Americans, but also to non-celiac gluten intolerance, which afflicts many millions more.

Dale O - Welcome to the 21st Century. Jane B is right, most commercial food is poisoned to some degree. You just have to learn what you can live with, and/or shop only at farmers' markets and/or grow your own. I might also say, welcome to my world. Try being allergic to wheat, corn, peanut, soy, cows' milk, chicken eggs, baker's yeast, malt, pretty well all molds and fungi (and I love mushrooms, alas), food coloring, and MSG. And I have known people with even more allergies, and more severe than mine.
