Gluten Exposed: The Science Behind the Hype and How to Navigate to a Healthy, Symptom-free Life

Overview

Overview

Gluten Exposed reveals:

♦ How little scientific evidence there is to justify this trend. The latest medical findings have shown that the majority of the information available about the effect of gluten on the body is only partly correct, or almost wholly untrue.
♦ How the gluten-free diet is a lifesaver for those with coeliac disease, but for others, it may injure their health, rob them of essential nutrients, and mask their real problems.
♦ A practical, clear roadmap that can help anyone achieve a healthier, symptom-free life.
Gluten Exposed provides an in-depth examination of every symptom and condition associated with gluten, how gluten works in the body, what the gluten-free diet cures—and what it doesn’t.

Summary

All the information in this book is based on current scientific knowledge about the effect on the body of gluten and the many foods, drugs, and supplements that we ingest. It is derived from an in-depth analysis of current medical literature, extensive clinical experience, patient and professional interviews, as well as ongoing research into the various manifestations and conditions ascribed to gluten-related disorders.
Other medical experts may have differing opinions and interpretations of the medical literature. Wherever pertinent, the authors have attempted to note conflicting points of view on key issues as well as topics that have not as yet been scientifically resolved.
Many of the peer-reviewed articles we have consulted may not be readily accessible to all readers. For this reason, we have not included footnotes for all medical facts and figures. Instead, we have listed good basic review articles and books for different subjects in the appendices.
All references to the “Center” refer to the Celiac Disease Center at Columbia University.

NOTE: This book is not a self-diagnosis manual. It is intended to generate informed patients who know what questions to ask of their physicians and how to understand the answers.
