Scary statistic discussed in Living gluten and wheat free presentation last night

scary statistics

The statistics below come from a  study done with close to 30,000 patients from 1969-2008   where they also examined deaths in three groups.

Those with full-blown Celiac Disease, those with inflammation of their intestine but not full-blown Celiac Disease, and those with latent Celiac Disease or Gluten sensitivity (elevated gluten antibodies but negative intestinal biopsy).

*Dramatic Findings:

39% increased risk of death in those with Celiac Disease.

72% increased risk in those with gut inflammation related to gluten

35% increased risk in those with gluten sensitivity but no Celiac Disease.

This was ground breaking research that proves you don’t hav e to have full-blow Celiac DIsease with a positive intesetinal biopsy to have serious health problems and complications-even death- from eating gluten.

*Journal of American Medical Association

Statistics like this set my passion on fire to pass on information about the damage gluten and wheat can do. Thanks to all who participated in last nights online presentation.  Looking forward to next month’s presentation, February, 13th.
