CELIAC DISEASE – A Hidden Epidemic

We thought this short video would be helpful for those who are still struggling with coming to terms with the Celiac condition and trying to explain it to others. It also provides another resource easily passed on to friends or family for better understanding. Just refer them to this post.

This interview with Dr. Peter Green M.D.*, author of Celiac Disease: A Hidden Epidemic, although brief, covers a lot of ground and raises awareness of this condition to the general public. As was pointed out during the interview, because the treatment of this condition does not involve drugs (and the related large advertising budget allotted to such drugs), this condition therefore gets very little public exposure.

For those in the USA who are interested in the details of some of the gluten free processed foods that Elisabeth (ABC host of The View) had on display as part of this interview, we have provided the following link that will take you to the ABC web site page that lists them by brand name. http://abc.go.com/daytime/theview/episodes/2007/20070312.html

Please recognize that our posting this link (with all due respect to the companies involved) is in no way a whole-hearted endorsement of their products. It is simply a way to provide  more ease of access to options available to you and also in recognition of those of our readers who may find those products helpful. We’ll let you seek them out and judge for yourself.

Our personal orientation, as we have said before, is towards taking more and more responsibility for preparing our own tasty foods from scratch. This is what our web site is about and what we are working behind the scenes to bring you more of. Empowering one in this way, has many more benefits inherent in it than one would think.

* Dr Peter Green is Director, Celiac Disease Center at Columbia University and one of the few recognized experts on celiac disease in the United States. For more information go to http://www.celiacdiseasecenter.columbia.edu/

Supporting you on your path to gluten FREEDOM.
