More gluten consumption associated with a lower risk of heart disease
Interesting post on Gizmodo about a study from Andrew Chan from Harvard Medical School on health impacts of removing gluten from your diet. I cant find the study itself, but found some similar ones over at Eureka Science News.
From the Gizmodo article:
- more gluten consumption was associated with a lower risk of heart disease—possibly because people weren’t getting the benefits from eating whole grains.
- “It raised the possibility that if you adhere long term to a gluten free diet, then you miss other essential nutrients and that might have a negative effect,” said Chan.
- gluten free diets are unnecessary for those who don’t suffer from celiac disease or a non-celiac wheat sensitivity.
So if you think you have celiac disease or a non-celiac wheat sensitivity GET TESTED. You may not want to eliminate gluten from your diet unless you get a positive result to a test. Otherwise, maybe its just the glyphosate that’s got you down. Or rashy. Or upset stomachy. Or whatever else ails you.
