The anti-gluten cartel

The anti-gluten cartel

Postby Stratego » Sat May 18, 2013 6:28 pm

I have a few friends that developed a gluten intolerance in the past two years. Why do they conveniently develop a gluten intolerance right when gluten-free is grabbing market share? Is the anti-gluten cartel secretly poisoning our gluten supply with minute amounts of inflammatory agents to create an allergic reaction in some people?

I'm not talking about friends who have always had an allergic reaction to gluten without knowing what it was. I'm talking about friends who used to drink beer, eat pasta, etc. etc. without any problem. Then all of a sudden..."I'm dying from pasta."

Stratego,

It's from sniffing too much airplane glue.

but I have a friend across the road who had the same thing happen fairly late in life.

So it appears to happen a lot. If that's what is happening.

allergies occur in western world because of too much coddling, basically. lack of certain gut flora because of our hygienic world has made out immune systems over sensitive and we end up reacting to normally harmless things.

still, i am thankful for gluten allergies. as i don't like the taste of pasta, i get rice pasta and the price is coming down as more and more people are afflicted by whatever the gluten free cartel is poisoning our gluten supply with

Yeah, they are curing Crohn's disease by introducing ascaria to the digestive tract. It emits some chemical that curtails the immune response and has been present for so long that we have actually adapted to them. Without these vermiform the human auto-immune response literally attacks it's own body.That's what Crohn's disease is. I have a friend that had to have a lot of her intestines removed because of that.

what the shit are you even talking about?

http://www.cnn.com/2010/HEALTH/08/03/fo ... index.html

The number of kids with food allergies went up 18 percent from 1997 to 2007, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. About 3 million children younger than 18 had a food or digestive allergy in 2007, the CDC said.


oh, did we learn to wash our hands in 1997?


before you quote the bit of this article that backs up what you said i'll just nip it in the bud

Still, this is only speculation.


it's not even backed enough to be a theory. it's still a hypothesis, aka speculation.

god. your junk science and misunderstanding of biology is going to get someone killed some day.

the problem is comrade in that the developed world there are more allergies. yeah it's a hypothesis. so what. the alternatives has to deal with pollution... but first world countries are getting cleaner, and, as you pointed out, allergies are on the rise, and then the other is infant feeding, but i don't see how that makes sense. as for "Washing our hands" it has to do with it in the water supply and being exposed to it at all. in 2000 where i lived, in rhode island, they put flouride for the first time in the water supply, for example. they hypothesis is that there is a lot of gut flora, and some of it humans evolved to deal with in that it was parasitic, and hasn't learned to downsize the police force even though there's less parasites in the guts. it's only very recent generations that would have never been exposed to such things
