Most of you know that I am one of the world leading experts on gluten free diets and food allergy. Additionally, I am a regular contributor on Fox News when it comes to issues relating to gluten and other food allergies. Most recently, I was invited to discuss new research on gluten and other food based chemicals like lectins and their relationship to leaky gut (intestinal permeability) and the induction of autoimmune disease.
Definitions For a Gluten Free Diet are Blurred
More and more research continues to mount a very valid and scientific case against the ingestion of the so called “gluten free” substitute grains. Most recently, a new study discovered two new corn gluten proteins that led to an immune reaction in patients with celiac disease (more on this to come later this week). Additionally, there is mounting evidence that similar compounds found in soy, peanut, and other beans can cause leaky gut and damage to the villi.
I will be discussing more on these issues in detail very soon.
All the best,
