Gluten Allergy-- A Very Common Hidden Cause of Human Suffering

This is a good article, and worth taking seriously.

Note, AP referred to this indirectly here in his article on evil:
Few people know that humans actually become addicted to things that are toxic or allergenic for them. This is the so-called allergy-addiction syndrome. Even common foods like wheat and cow’s milk products cause much mental and physical illness in some people. Dairy and wheat have only been consumed by Man for 5,000- 10,000 years; and is said to coincide with the onset of some mental illnesses. Studies have found that violent, convicted criminals’ behaviors were changed and improved after improving their diet. The same is true of learning disorders in children.

Interestingly, there is a 33 involved in the gluten-induced celiac disease:
Celiac disease is an HLA-DQ2-associated disorder characterized by intestinal T cell responses to ingested wheat gluten proteins. A peptide fragment of 33 residues (alpha(2)-gliadin 56-88) produced by normal gastrointestinal proteolysis contains six partly overlapping copies of three T cell epitopes and is a remarkably potent T cell stimulator after deamidation by tissue transglutaminase (TG2). (J Immunol. 2004 Aug 1;173(3):1757-62)
What this means is that the wheat product gluten is naturally broken down by the body into a 33-piece fragment that stimulates your immune system to attack the gluten fragment and cause an allergic response in your body.
