Now on to why you should care about avoiding food allergens
The effects of food allergies, intolerances, and sensitivities are wide spread and detrimental to overall health & performance, even in those WITHOUT CELIAC DISEASE! Last year I posted about the effects of food allergies on body fat gain, swelling, and bloating./the mechanisms behind those reactions, and sources of information to help those afflicted. I also covered the 3 main dietary allergens: Wheat (gluten/gliadin). PASTEURIZED dairy, and Soy: 2014 GFAF Expo post: Fat, Swollen, and Bloated is no way to go thru life!
This year I want to expand that information to include reasons for NON – Celiacs to avoid gluten and food allergens for improved overall health & well being.

Of course many people I encounter do not know or believe in any the reasons to avoid food allergens for many in the medical industry, so called fitness industry, and mainstream media do not promote, understand, or know how to deal with food allergies. Here is some valuable scientific information from some top medical medical professionals who do understand the effects of food allergies on health AND WHY TO AVOID THEM!
First up: Dr. William Davis – “Wheat the Unhealthy Grain!”
One of the organs that is extremely susceptible to the detrimental effects of gluten and allergens is the BRAIN, and the top physician dealing with this and informing the public of the REAL dangers is Dr. David Perlmutter:
PAY ATTENTION TO THE INFO ON GRAINS & ALZHEIMER’S!
A GREAT DOCUMENTARY that came out recently is BREAD HEAD – IT SHOWS FIRST HAND THE DEVASTATING EFFECTS OF CHOOSING TO LISTEN TO MAINSTREAM HEALTH, MEDICAL, AND NUTRITIONAL EXPERTS ON THE SAFETY & BENEFITS ON GRAINS – EVERYONE NEEDS TO SEE THIS FILM!!!
Sadly we have the media, USDA, and AMA to blame for the abundance of allergens in our diet for they promote and subsidize the terrible food pyramid which emphasizes predominantly GOVERNMENT subsidized grains as the largest part of a supposedly heart healthy diet?? (NEWLY published research shows this is now false), the food pyramid also emphasizes dairy of which much in the U.S. is pasteurized. making it undigestable for many and inflammatory to the body, and the last of the big three food allergens, soy, is also subsidized by the gov….(Sorry, but soy is NOT a health food!!)
In addition to the 3 big 3 food allergens, there can be many others such as corn, beef protein, eggs, nuts etc. the best way to identify what you are sensitive / allergic to is to have a blood test. The Life Extension Foundation has a reliable & accurate test that can be ordered without a prescription that tests for 90 know food allergens, and the results are mailed directly to you.

As I tell all my clients “Your health is in YOUR HANDS!”, you need to become educated, take action, and PROTECT YOURSELF!!
