Scientists who found gluten sensitivity evidence have now shown it doesn't exist

no kidding eh

The subjects cycled through high-gluten, low-gluten, and no-gluten (placebo) diets, without knowing which diet plan they were on at any given time. In the end, all of the treatment diets - even the placebo diet - caused pain, bloating, nausea, and gas to a similar degree. It didn’t matter if the diet contained gluten. (Read more about the study.)


"In contrast to our first study… we could find absolutely no specific response to gluten," Gibson wrote in the paper. A third, larger study published this month has confirmed the findings.

Actually, we have a guy who worked here that cannot eat any sort of bread product. The last time he did he almost died, I believe he had a severe allergy to gluten.

I read a study that concluded that most people who think they are gluten intolerant are actually reacting to the Roundup that is sprayed on crops just prior to harvest.

I'm guessing it's a standard wheat allergy although he could be one of the rare people genuinely allergic to gluten. I have the same problem with certain fruits. Anything that contains pectin I can't eat because of allergies to it. For example, I can't eat apples, but I can drink apple juice as long as the pectin has been removed.
However, A LOT of food processors have removed gluten from bread products, pasta and other foods where gluten is used as a binder.
Personally, I think the commonness of this "allergy" started when some granola munching tree hugger decided that gluten sounded too much like "glue" and therefore had to be bad for you. Then, through the wonders and mysteries of psychosomatics, all kinds of people decided they too were "allergic" to gluten. Soon others followed suit but to a different degree. They just simply decided that gluten was bad for you without any research to back the claim up and demanded that the rest of us who don't give a sh*t about gluten should have to eat gluten-free crap. Gluten-free bread sucks monkey butt and gluten-free pasta turns all mushy.

You imagined that. It is used in spring not 3 month later prior to harvest.

If you are going to make sh-t up, go do it elsewhere stoner.

Do you know why it screams Bullsh-t? RoundUp isn't used on wheat.

Why Is Glyphosate Sprayed on Crops Right Before Harvest?...
...What is not so well known is that farmers also use glyphosate on crops such as wheat, oats, edible beans and other crops right before harvest, raising concerns that the herbicide could get into food products....
...Glyphosate Used to Speed Up Wheat Harvest

Charles Benbrook, Ph.D., who published the paper on the mounting use of glyphosate, says the practice of spraying glyphosate on wheat prior to harvest, known as desiccating, began in Scotland in the 1980s.

“Farmers there often had trouble getting wheat and barley to dry evenly so they can start harvesting. So they came up with the idea to kill the crop (with glyphosate) one to two weeks before harvest to accelerate the drying down of the grain," he said.

The pre-harvest use of glyphosate allows farmers to harvest crops as much as two weeks earlier than they normally would, an advantage in northern, colder regions."

The problem isn't with the gluten itself but with yeast growth.. Get rid of the yeast problem and the sensitivity to gluten goes away.

"Common wheat harvest protocol in the United States is to drench the wheat fields with Roundup several days before the combine harvesters work through the fields as the practice allows for an earlier, easier and bigger harvest
http://www.thehealthyhomeeconomist.c...ts-not-gluten/

"...experts from the U.N.'s Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and World Health Organization (WHO) said glyphosate is "unlikely to pose a carcinogenic risk to humans" ...

...The conclusions appear to contradict a finding by the WHO's Lyon-based International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), which in March 2015 said glyphosate is "probably" able to cause cancer in humans and classified it as a 'Group 2A' carcinogen.

love your post...I actually think this gluten free is just another fad by tree hugging granola crunchers as well. But for the most part people like that cannot think for themselves anyways...sheeple.

desiccating... when you spray with a silicate. Glcosphate isn't a desiccant.

Another f-king useless stoner liar.

Boy are you right about producers going gluten-free, Jin..........it pisses me right off too. I have no problem with products that are gluten free for those who can stomach it but now I can't seem to buy anything that isn't.

I too know someone who has a severe allergy to gluten. It was discovered when he was an infant at Sick Kids Hospital. I have known this person before I had ever heard of gluten. I just hope no one decides to attack him if they hear him ask 'is this gluten free'.

I think the modern trend of not wanting gluten and wheat was started with the 'carb free' diets which I suppose are okay if you want to lose weight......


A gluten-free diet is a diet that excludes the protein gluten. Gluten is found in grains such as wheat, barley, rye, and a cross between wheat and rye called triticale.

A gluten-free diet is primarily used to treat celiac disease. Gluten causes inflammation in the small intestines of people with celiac disease. Eating a gluten-free diet helps people with celiac disease control their signs and symptoms and prevent complications.

Initially, following a gluten-free diet may be frustrating. But with time, patience and creativity, you'll find there are many foods that you already eat that are gluten-free and you will find substitutes for gluten-containing foods that you can enjoy.

The gluten-free diet is a treatment for celiac disease. Some people who don't have celiac disease also may have symptoms when they eat gluten, however. This is called non-celiac gluten sensitivity.

People with non-celiac gluten sensitivity may benefit from a gluten-free diet. But people with celiac disease must be gluten-free to prevent symptoms and disease-related complications.

I think some people will believe anything a doctor says...coddle something and it becomes weak. What I mean by this is, if you are constantly worrying about your health...you may be sick!
