Thanks to SmartBrief, a good/bad news about the celiac disease

[Vintage ad for Kellogg's corn flakes]

Thanks to SmartBrief, it's very easy to find useful information about a subject you're interested in or about a specific content. I like to know what's new about the celiac disease and food allergies and today I read this abstract:

A study found traces of gluten in flours and grains that are supposed to be naturally gluten-free, such as oats and rice, probably from being grown or processed near grains that do contain gluten, the researchers said. Manufacturers should test grains and flours to ensure they are truly gluten-free, researchers and experts said.

Here you can read the whole article written by Genevra Pittman, "Gluten-free" foods may be contaminated: study.

The good news is that this study could explain why I'm sick even eating gluten-free foods. The bad news is that this means I have to pay even more attention what I'm eating. And this is definitely a very bad news for me.

Are you already a SmartBrief subscriber? For what kind of content?
