Gluten: What You Dont Know Might Kill You

Could a slice of bread be the source of your health problems? Dr. Mark Hyman says yes! He explains in this short video, how a common compound, gluten, found in many foods can trigger chronic disease and even raise your risk of dying—and he tells you how to eliminate it from your diet, safely and easily.

Gluten is a staple in our modern diet. Predominately in wheat based products, breads, cereals, wraps etc...

The scary thing is, 99% of people who have a problem with eating gluten don't even know it.

A recent study in the Journal of the American Medical Association found that people with diagnosed, undiagnosed and latent Coeliac Disease or Gluten Sensitivity had a higher risk of death, mostly from heart disease and cancer. This study looked at around 30 000 patients from 1969 to 2008 and examined deaths in 3 groups.

The results showed there was

39% increase of death in those with full blown Coeliac Disease
72% in those with gut inflammation related to gluten
35% increase in risk who had gluten sensitivity

Another study compared the blood of 10 000 people 50 yrs ago to 10 000 people today found that there was a full blown increase in Coeliac Disease by 400%.
