    "A review paper in The New England Journal of Medicine listed 55 "diseases" that can be caused by eating gluten. (iv) These include osteoporosis, irritable bowel disease, inflammatory bowel disease, anemia, cancer, fatigue, canker sores, (v) and rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, multiple sclerosis, and almost all other autoimmune diseases. Gluten is also linked to many psychiatric (vi) and neurological diseases, including anxiety, depression, (vii) schizophrenia, (viii) dementia, (ix) migraines, epilepsy, and neuropathy (nerve damage). (x) It has also been linked to autism.(ix)"

    I remember Robb Wolf saying in a podcast that diagnosed celiacs are actually lucky b/c they KNOW the harm gluten will do...it's all the poor folks who follow CW and eat lots of "healthy whole grains" and are killing themselves slowly that are out of luck.

    Thanks for publishing that article! It is a perfect read for my family. They are having a hard time avoiding grains, but this might convince them along with more articles down the road. Thanks again!

    Thanks for the link maba - my brother recently got diagnosed with diverticulitis, or in other words, an inflamed intestinal tract. He's very much SAD as well, and I hadn't even THOUGHT he might be gluten-sensitive and/or a celiac. Hopefully this might help!

    Thanks for posting, Maba. As much as I don't like going to HuffPo , that was great.

    Ooer, I like Mark Hyman. I don't agree with him on everything but he's super smart and definitely knows a lot about pesky neolithic disease-causing junk.
