I hadn't been aware of that. In any event, I definitely feel much better now that I'm gluten free and keep my carbs pretty low overall. I do love my half of an Udi's Mighty Bagel in the morning though!! Even if I had a choice, I'd never go back to a regular bagel!
Interesting things you add here! My husband carries the genetic marker for celiac plus he has reynauds and crohns. I have hypothyroid and the family history of diabetes, thyroid and a bunch of other undesirable autoimmune things....we have kids with all of the above. Gotta love Gregor Mendel and those pea plants....
