Gluten is a mixture of proteins found in
, in which they all have a different type and concentration of gluten. Did you know there is no such thing as gluten free oats? When you see a package of oats labeled gluten free, that just means the oats have not come in contact with the "traditional" glutens found in wheat, barley, and rye. Oats in and of themselves contain gluten - avenin. Many people who go "traditional" gluten free may claim they feel more energized consuming a bowl of "gluten free" oatmeal for breakfast, but what is most alarming is gluten can work as a silent killer for those with gluten sensitivity
Evidence shows that the glutens found in rice and corn, along with other grains, creates the same type of inflammatory reaction as wheat. While people may feel better initially, damage is still being done to their intestines. Therefore, these people will go on to develop several additional autoimmune diseases in their lifetime. Sadly, their doctors will not link their health issues back to their diet.
Aside from the gluten found in grains, in general they are not healthy. Historical records reveal that when gluten became a staple in the human diet, chronic diseases followed; ranging from cancer, heart disease, diabetes, bone disease, etc. Many people do not realize the seeds are sprayed with fungicides, insecticides, and pesticides and we wonder where all our unexplainable symptoms, diseases, and cancers stem from. In addition, the chemicals within the grain prevent minerals in our body from being properly absorbed. Think it is time we go back to our roots and question all the marketing buzz around so called "healthy" grain based foods.
