    Default 3 Reasons to Give Up Gluten (That You’d Never Suspect)

    Maybe you’ve toyed with the idea of giving up gluten, or at least limiting it somewhat, but you haven’t made the leap just yet. After all, you haven’t been diagnosed as gluten sensitive or celiac. Well, you probably didn’t know that an estimated 99% of the people who have either gluten intolerance or celiac disease are never diagnosed.
    So put down that whole-grain bagel and read up! Here are three of the biggest reasons to go gluten-free:

    1. More than 55 diseases have been linked to gluten.


    It’s estimated that as many as 1 in 30 people are sensitive to gluten. If you are one of those people, your immune system sends antibodies to attack the inflammatory gluten particles. Unfortunately, the protein in gluten, gliadin, resembles on a molecular level some of the body’s own tissues. The gliadin antibodies often mistakenly attack other organs and systems, from the skin to the thyroid to the brain. This process, called molecular mimicry, is why many people who are sensitive to gluten are also sensitive to other foods, like the proteins in dairy, that resemble gluten.

    I went to see something on her website and got the same message. Earlier today when I posted the article I checked the link and it was fine. I think her website got hacked or something is going on.

    Just saw on FaaceBook Dr. Myers said a large volume of people visiting her site so Hostgator shut it down and she is switching to a service that can handle the traffic.
