Gluten Sensitivity-Related Blogs

Written by Sayer Ji, Founder
Many of us ate wheat and gluten-containing products from infanthood into adulthood, unaware of the many adverse health effects that came with this socially–sanctioned dietary practice, until our bodies forced us to fully appreciate the darker side of wheat. Now, having thrust a baguette into the glutinous heart of the wheat monster, many of us have bodies that are still recovering from its ravages.

Why is it important to recognize gastrointestinal inflammation? A look at the central role of the duodenum for our health.
Written by GMI Reporter
The Institute for Responsible Technology (IRT) released a report today proposing a link between genetically modified (GM) foods and gluten-related disorders. In today’s report, a team of experts suggests that GM foods may be an important environmental trigger for gluten sensitivity, which is estimated to affect as many as 18 million Americans.
Written by Sayer Ji, Founder
The mainstream media is now declaring 'gluten sensitivity' is an imagined condition -- this in spite of millions worldwide adopting a gluten and wheat free diet. What's going on?
Written by Sayer Ji, Founder
Food addictions are not strictly “psychological” problems, but have a hard-wired, organic component. Many of the most commonly consumed foods in Western culture actually contain narcotic properties associated with the presence of psychoactive chemicals that bind to opioid receptors in the nervous system.
Written by Sayer Ji, Founder
Despite popular misconceptions gluten is only the tip of a very large iceberg. There are actually 23,788 distinct proteins that have been identified in wheat, any one of which could incite a negative immune reaction in the body.
Written by Sayer Ji, Founder
Whereas conventional screenings for wheat allergies or celiac disease consider intolerance exceedingly rare, an accumulating body of clinical research now links wheat consumption with over 200 health problems. Could this be why millions of American consumers are now expressing their wholesale rejection of this "king of grains"?
Written by Sayer Ji, Founder
As the autism epidemic continues to accelerate, one of the least well known contributing causes goes mostly unnoticed: wheat consumption.
Written by Peggy Gannon
Gluten-free foods seem to be popping up everywhere. Is this just another diet fad? Just five years ago, asking your server for gluten-free choices would get you the proverbial blank stare. Today it's more likely to elicit a menu page of choices. Family chains, some fast-food outlets, even ball park vendors, now include gluten-free options. Why are millions of Americans suddenly eschewing wheat?
Written by Sayer Ji, Founder
We know that wheat harms the gut, which has been called "the second brain." So is it all that surprising to learn that it could have nerve and brain-damaging properties?
Written by Dr. Rodney Ford
Here we present you with the evidence of the universal harm of gluten.
Written by Sayer Ji, Founder
Sayer Ji, the author of "The Dark Side of Wheat," discusses the emerging viewpoint that wheat represents a human species-specific intolerance that should be universally avoided.
Written by Sayer Ji, Founder
Could common complaints of bloating, abdominal tenderness and indigestion following a meal, and even the increasingly prevalent complaint lazily labeled 'irritable bowel syndrome' by conventional medicine, be worsened -- even caused -- by consuming wheat?
Written by Sayer Ji, Founder
With global rates of celiac disease (CD) accelerating, a new study reveals a link between this popular pain killer and intestinal damage consistent with those observed in CD.
Written by Sayer Ji, Founder
Wheat's weight-promoting effects are newly confirmed. Used to add weight to cattle before slaughter, wheat has been used to pack on the pounds in animal husbandry since the advent of the discipline. Why should we be surprised that it adds weight to humans who eat it as well?
Written by Sayer Ji, Founder
Wheat could be driving more than your digestive system crazy. While wheat is well known to wreak havoc on the gastrointestinal health of genetically susceptible folks, such as those with celiac disease, and more recently, irritable bowel syndrome, new research published in the journal Psychiatry Research indicates that sensitivity to one of the components in wheat known as gliadin could be driving some into states of acute mania.

Global awareness about Celiac disease (CD) is growing—unfortunately, along with some rather unhelpful perceptions. It doesn't help that "celiac disease" has become a generic blanket term not unlike how "Kleenex" today signifies no more than a box of tissue paper of any brand.

In this article a key question is brought to the forefront, namely, is eating wheat and gluten free enough to obtain optimal health? The mass market has done quite a good job of accommodating the gluten & wheat free movement by providing an increasingly wide number of good tasting and relatively nutritious "whole grain" products. But are whole grains like rice, or other substitute flours like potato, really good for us?
