Celiac Disease 5 Times Higher Than 50 Years Ago – Mayo Clinic Video

by John Libonati on July 7th, 2009


Dr. Joseph Murray of the Mayo Clinic explains his landmark study that tested blood samples from 50 years ago and compared them to people of the same ages today. The results: 1. Celiac disease is 5 times more prevalent than it was 50 years ago, 2. People with untreated celiac disease are 4 times more likely to die prematurely than the general population. This breaking information shows us that the rate of celiac disease is rising and people must be identified and diagnosed to insure good health. – John Libonati, Editor. Glutenfreeworks.com

    I believe out bodies are starting to reject gluten. Accordin to the Paleo Diet (which makes very good arguments to that diet, but I which I do not personally practice), we were not meant to digest things like wheat and certain grains. I mean, think about it, we have to process the crap out of the original grain, to make it digestible.
