Reasons= autoimmune diseases.
You may not feel the effects now, immediately. Only the select few who react to grains, those with Celiac disease get immediate noticeable problems. For others the damage happens slowly over time, you get older and start feeling feeling sick all the time and the doctors can't figure out why. They say chronic fatigue syndrome or fibromyalgia or something else many people consider 'normal' with age ... arthritis.
I don't really think that those are dice you want to throw?
It's a bit like playing Russian roulette with 4 chambers loaded instead of one. Not good odds.
This guys talking style is annoying, too busy, but it's all accurate info.
Fast, simple, explanation... of BOTH ways people can have gluten sensitivity.
We all have to make our own decisions about what we are willing to risk.
Gluten/grain does NOT go in my mouth.
It made me extremely sick for years and years, and I'm still recovering from the diseases it caused.
It struck me early in life... my first major autoimmune disease at 25. But since going grain free I'm actually recovering and healing FOR REAL after 15 years of being told to 'live with it' by doctors and given hard drugs and having 10 surgeries.
Wow, what a great response, thanks. I'm glad you took the time to write that, rather than just leave a sarcastic response like some others. I'll take a look at those vids and do some other research.
I agree, very interesting vid.
I'm curious how old you are. A few years ago, I don't know that I would have noticed any sensitivity to gluten, but I'm 24 and have been noticing problems with gluten and especially rancid/high-omega-6 oils for at least a couple years. I believe I would develop arthritis in my right knee if I did not eat this way, or I already have, but keep it at bay, since it hurts really badly when I eat gluten and/or eat out (unidentified oils are usually soybean).
My MIL claims she has no ill effects from gluten but has auto immune diseases now...Reynauds syndrome and horrible arthritis in her hands---but at this point in her life cannot lay blame on gluten. I think it's the latent effects that are more concerning...
I'm 18 so I guess that perhaps I could develop something later down the line if I continue to have gluten.
Or maybe you won't.. decide what's best for you based on want you think is best and not on what others say.
I'm lucky to get a strong reaction. I get joint pain from wheat and horrible boils on my face from crap oils. Just because you don't notice atherosclerosis doesn't mean it isn't happening. Thankfully vanity has helped me to find better health. I mean, I have absolutely NO acne or joint pain when I am strict. But my cardiovascular system? It tells me nothing.
I'm just saying, the chronic effects are worth avoiding, even if they're painless. Why drop dead just because of bread?
I get strong reaction from gluten too. It makes me fat (mostly the mid-section). Other side effects are temporary bloating and heartburn. Personally, I avoid it because of the reasons I mentioned and to prevent many possible diseases and obesity in the future. And not really missing it is another good reason, too IMO.
You know you can buy gluten free sausages, right? I buy gluten free beef and lamb ones all the time.
