Celiac feedback

As your respected publication serves one or more of the communities that is also served by our free, online health-support group, I would like to take this opportunity to share with you some important information about an epidemic whose standard treatment is not any medicine, but rather a special diet. Ironically, the uniqueness of this standard treatment may help explain why the disease is neglected more than any other by our quick-fix, drug-oriented country.
According to the National Institutes of Health, celiac is the most under-diagnosed disease in the United States, affecting at least one in 133 people. The disease also affects people of all races, except those whose ancestry is in China or Japan; and among Caribbean people of purely African ancestry. But, among all other people, celiac disease is common.
Gluten Free Way 105 is a free support group for individuals who live with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity in many Los Angeles cities/communities near Interstate 105.
Gluten Free Way 105 offers unique features:
• Comprehensive albums of photos of gluten-free groceries at local stores.
• Comprehensive list of addresses and contacts of restaurants known to offer gluten-free dishes in our service area. This info is in the Gluten Free Way 105 Restaurant Guide, sent free of charge to each new member of our online support group.
• Comprehensive descriptions and driving directions from the 105 to dining establishments in our service area that offer gluten-free dishes in the Gluten Free Way 105 Restaurant Guide.
• Links to the full text of medical studies on celiac disease and/or gluten sensitivity. As matter of public service, we do not accept advertising on our site. However, we welcome any publicity you deem helpful to our mission to address this long-neglected, though serious public health concern.
Thank you for your precious time and attention.
