Breaking News: This year the Los Angeles Marathon will be selling Gluten-Free Water!!!
Also I want to publicly commend my dear friend and fellow Celiac, Lindsey Deitch for taking on this challenge. Lindsey is the Founder and CEO of the amazing XO Baking Company. Lindsey will be participating in the 26+ mile even. Lindsey also just happens to be one of the stars of our Celiac PSA. You can see her here: PSA
GO TEAM LINDSEY!!
In other news, and there is lots of it. Have you noticed? There seems to plenty of Celiac and gluten/sensitivity talk in the news these days.
Following is a list of recent articles, research and gluten-free folly that I think we can all find relevant. As always, I've tried to do the heavy lifting for you by including a very brief summary of each. That way you can easily determine how you want to spend your valuable reading time:
Variations on this story have been kicking around for several weeks. I thought it relevant as much of our gluten-free diet is often rice-based.
This article provides a very readable summary of the original 37 page document found on the next link (#3).
Here is the complete study which digs deep into the topic, includes new research and proposes new nomenclature and classification of gluten-related disorders.
I found this article really annoying. The writer should have done her homework before taking on the subject matter. I've seen several articles lately that refer to a gluten-free diet as a "fad". Of course there is that "fad" element trying it out, but they will fall off the gluten-free wagon very quickly, if they haven't already. Articles like this remind me that we must continue to raise awareness and educate and update the mainstream media.
This is a press release about an 8 step exercise program called: Turbo Charged. I don't know anything about it, but I thought the fact that it's based on a gluten-free diet to improve athletic performance very interesting.
In March of 2011, the Federal Government reclassified Celiac as an "invisible disability". To clearly understand the ramifications, this is a must read.
Very interesting article -really thinking "outside the crumb" here.
Great article. If your favorite isn't on this list, consider emailing the article to the Dean of Students.
Ok, I've think we've reached the tipping point now; I know my brain is full. Hope yours is too.
