[personal profile] literally
 First it was the Weston A. Price Foundation, now it's the Body Ecology site, Celiacs (or anyone else with gluten sensitivities), please eat your wholesome gluten grains even without a review board, adequate research, and evidence. 

 Even if the grain industry isn't involved with this bullshit, I think it's perfectly clear that this is a symptom of something greater, namely how food sensitivities still aren't taken seriously.

 Pre-ETA: The Body Ecology site makes bullshit up that people with gluten issues can't drink coffee either. Look at their site, it's clear they want to sell people things.

ETA: That thread in PaNu that I linked to has some excellent discussions about fructose. I'm now convinced the main appeal of most fruits in general is the fact that like gluten grains, they are addictive. I never got satiated, much less felt nourished by those things, but they're easy to over eat and feel sick later, at least when it comes to the fresh kind. It's not too good for your teeth either, I've noticed.

ETA 2: Did I ever mention these WAPF people are also anti-vaccine? But that's another bitching for later. Anyway, I can't help but wonder how many Celiacs may get cancer because bullshit like this continues to spread online. It's incredible, Celiac has nothing to do with the gut, it's an inherited auto immune disorder, but they're promoting gluten grains to Celiacs as though that's the only problem. People need to stop giving them money.

Quote Cheeseslave:

Gluten intolerance was not an issue 100 years ago.

Yes dear, and I'm sure all those weak and osteoporosis damaged skeletons of the Egyptians where just a matter of archaeologist's imagination too. They ate their lactic fermented whole wheat grains, and nothing bad ever happened, right.

It's reasoning from people like this that makes me more sympathetic to the paleo crowd.
