    Some fantastic links, Linda! Love those animal photographs. :-) Who knew there was a Twitter notifier? (I could see that filling up one’s In Box quickly.) I still don’t get the WiFi connection … will have to re-read that one. Thanks for all your research! I enjoyed the break from my usual reading. 😉

    The “Celiac – Wheat Allergy – Gluten Intolerance” article’s claim that gluten intolerance is a different condition (not an autoimmune disease) than celiac disease seems at odds with many of the things I’ve run across lately. All the things I’ve been reading and hearing put celiac disease in a spectrum of autoimmune diseases caused by a reaction to gluten, many of which may not have any visible signs of intestinal atrophy and that full blown celiac disease is at the extreme end of gluten sensitivity/intolerance. The autoimmune reaction can affect all sorts of different parts of your body, not just the intestines. Based on that article it would make it seam that if you didn’t exhibit the symptoms or test results for celiac disease, that it’s okay to have some gluten in your diet. Yet people like Dr. Alessio Fasano, Dr. Vikki Peterson, and Dr. Rodney Ford say otherwise.

      Janet, that’s a good point. It’s probably an area that science is still figuring out. I think that my son who is very sensitive to gluten, yet had negative celiac tests, falls somewhere on that spectrum. However, I’m not sure we can rule out a gluten intolerance that is not autoimmune related. Maybe there is both, but how would one know the difference? It’s definitely safest to avoid all gluten.
