Article Link - Gluten: What You Don’t Know Might Kill You

It's been blessedly quiet around these parts lately - the kids have been compliant, the fridge full, and work busy.   I've been enjoying the out-of-ordinary peace because, as you know, it won't last very long.  ;-)

I did want to jump on here and share an article I found via Twitter - "Gluten: What You Don't Know Might Kill You".  As many of you know, Gluten Intolerance is what pushed me into the Paleo lifestyle and I'm thankful every day that I was able to reclaim my life - every-other-day migraines suck.

I find this quote interesting:
"There was a 39 percent increased risk of death in those with celiac disease, 72 percent increased risk in those with gut inflammation related to gluten, and 35 percent increased risk in those with gluten sensitivity but no celiac disease.
This is ground-breaking research that proves you don’t have to have full-blown celiac disease with a positive intestinal biopsy (which is what conventional thinking tells us) to have serious health problems and complications–even death–from eating gluten.
Yet an estimated 99 percent of people who have a problem with eating gluten don’t even know it. They ascribe their ill health or symptoms to something else–not gluten sensitivity, which is 100 percent curable."
Sounds familiar, doesn't it?
