I'm confused. This product is made in Israel Why would they use US crops?

If it is true that there is no longer enough GMO-free crops in the US, then wouldn't it be also true that nobody else would be able to use GMO-free products? I'm with L. Coulter, I'm confused. I'm a little angry too. This combined with the government saying a product can have 20ppm and still be labeled gluten-free when I can't tolerate 1ppm is making it very difficult for me to eat!

There is currently no scientifically verifiable reasons to not eat GMO food. Humans have been genetically modifying our food sources through breeding and selection since pre-history. Corn's mere existence is a perfect example of this. GMO crops that make it into our food supply do not contain genes from fish or animals or anything of that sort. The ones that have genes of that type are purely experimental and never make it to the food supply.

There isn't even anecdotal evidence to support Morgellons. There is a general consensus amongst medical practitioners that specialize in the related fields is that it is not a new disease. The fact that people claiming to have the disease have successfully lobbied congress is not supporting evidence of the disease's existence, but of people's fear of not understanding what they have.

GMO crops do not endanger lives, they make our lives better. More efficiently feeding people with increased yields. Along with other non-organic methods the number of people who can be fed has tripled. In a world where hunger kills millions each year, why would you support decreased food yields when there is absolutely no evidence of any risk to eating GMO crops. Please stop spreading unwarranted fears. It's good that you are at least expressing a concern for others, but that would be best used if you looked at things more critically and with some logic before unintentionally spreading more misinformation yourself.

You have Glutino confused with Glutano. Glutino makes their products in the US and Canada.

nnoooooo! oh well.

there is a big difference between native americans slowly, over generations, making corn more edible, and scientists in a lab making recombinant dna using such lovely things as e.coli bacteria and viruses that cause plants to grow tumors to splice such reassuring things as suicide genes and roundup into our food. Wake up, GMO is bad for us and the environment. Lets not forget how the "medical practitioners" reassured us of the safety of DDT and IUDs. Do you really believe we can help feed the world with a suicide gene that can make seeds infertile for subsistence farmers, who save last years crop for this years seed?

Honestly, just personal experience? GMO corn gives me a headache. Non-GMO does not. There is something different about GMO food--maybe the the soybean genes in the corn.

Otherwise, I really wouldn't care. After awhile, if you worry about what you eat that much, there is nothing to eat. Gluten-free is bad enough.

Everyone, run for the hills!!!!

Oh, never mind. :/

Mr. Bowles,
I am afraid that you are sadly mis- and un-informed about GMO foods. There are plenty of "scientifically verifiable reasons to not eat GMO food". Scientist who have tested GM foods and found them to be dangerous have been silenced by government. Some are beginning to speak out about their findings. GMO seeds DO NOT produce higher yields, but instead require the use of more and more pesticides on crops, as the bugs become resistant to the pesticide that is genetically inserted into the crops. Farmers who use GMO seeds are not allowed to harvest their own seeds from their crops, but must continue to buy new seeds from giant companies like Monsanto or they are taken to court and ruined financially. Farmers in India who have been convinced they can end their hunger with GM seeds have found this has not turned out to be true and there has been a wave of suicides among Indian farmers whose lives have been ruined by GM seeds. GMO foods contain neurotoxic pesticides in their DNA. This is not the same as breeding and selection of seeds that has been used for many decades. Get your facts straight, Mr. Bowles.

Hi Kyle,
I do believe that celiac disease is a result of genetically modified wheat. back in the early part of the century, wonderbread was discovered. They needed to make this bread with a batter instead of a dough. They discovered that they needed more gluten to make it. This is when the wheat kernal was genetically modified to have 75% more gluten in it. It has taken more than a century for this mistake to fully come to realization, that this extra gluten does not agree with 1 in 125 people, and it creates an autoimmune disease, known as Celiac disease. Take it from there-and wake up!!!

d.Frogger you are wrong about that
A clever Greek physician named Aretaeus of Cappadocia
Some 8,000 years after its onset, celiac disease was identified and named. A clever Greek physician named Aretaeus of Cappadocia, living in the first century AD, wrote about "The Coeliac Affection." In fact, he named it "koiliakos" after the Greek word "koelia" (abdomen). His description: "If the stomach be irretentive of the food and if it pass through undigested and crude, and nothing ascends into the body, we call such persons coeliacs".
Another 17 centuries went by, and in the early 19th century a Dr. Mathew Baillie, probably unaware of Aretaeus, published his observations on a chronic diarrheal disorder of adults causing malnutrition and characterized by a gas-distended abdomen. He even went on to suggest dietetic treatment, writing: " Some patients have appeared to derive considerable advantage from living almost entirely upon rice." Baillie's observations, however, went practically unnoticed, and it was for the English doctor Samuel Gee, a leading authority in pediatric diseases, to take full credit for the modern description of celiac disease some 75 years later, when he gave a lecture to medical students on the "celiac affection," the milestone description of this disorder in modern times.
Like Baillie, Gee sensed that "if the patient can be cured at all, it must be by means of diet."
As the decades passed, there was still no clue as to what could be causing celiac disease and no hint (in spite of autopsies frequently performed given the high mortality rate) of the damage to the intestinal mucosa. Yet some of the present-day findings, which we tend to consider as recent advances, were indeed well known long ago, including that celiac disease could be present without diarrhea, the protective role of breast-feeding in the development and severity of celiac disease, only recently documented, and the increased incidence in families, particularly twins.
In the 1920s a new dietetic treatment erupted on the scene and for decades established itself as the cornerstone of therapy: the banana diet.

There was NO wonder bread in the 1st Century

Anyone have any suggestions for feeding a 15 month old who cannot eat wheat, soy, corn or milk? They seem to be in everything!

Dear emaegf,

Thank you so much for the interesting knowledge. I will be further researching. It seems that I have been so short sighted on my history of the disease. How did you you come by this information and are there any key terms that you may recommend for further research on this this subject.
I am an ardent student of Asian history and would love to further my investigations with this new knowledge.
Thanx again,
Happy New Year too!

I found it here and over the last 16 years of being gluten free I have read the same information over and over.
Celiac Sprue Association used to send out an information to new patients that also included a book that had some of these reports in it. Don't know if they still have the book or if it's on their website.
I have heard from many older Celiacs who remember growing up as Banana Babies where all they were fed was bananas. So little was known about Celiac that there were many strange remedies.
During the Dutch famine they found that kids especially who were sickly got better and fewer died from starvation because flour was scarce so they had to find other foods to feed their families.
Search for Celiac history, Dr Gee, also the spelling Coeliac is used in many reports especially from European countries, Gee-Herter disease. Once you start searching you'll get even more terms to search.

Thanks again.
Perhaps wheat could be a food that we were not supposed to eat at all, right from the beginning of time?

Do you work for Monsanto?

There is absolutely NO PROOF these crops are safe. They are using US as guinea pigs. Hamsters will become sterile after three generations of eating GMO soy and grow hair on the inside of their mouth and all kinds of maladies. THERE IS medical evidence that GMOs ARE DANGEROUS! Why do you think the bees are dying mysteriously? It is because they genetically modify crops such as corn to have built in pesticide and when the poor bees try to pollinate these crops THEY DIE. The corporate media won't tell you that.

Hi Desert Rose,
I agree totally, these other people are brainwashed by the government statistics. Investors are now investing in Wheat futures as opposed to precious metals. The world economy would be severely affected if the truth got out to everyone that media now reaches!
I wish I could be self sufficient and off the grid. I would plant yams and yucca and root vegetable for my starches, and grow the rest.

Start buying organic, because it may be the genetically modified versions of corn, etc. Try rice instead and making your foods from scratch. I would avoid convenience foods.

No way do they make us better. Having done a research study on GMO/GME, it kills! and now super weeds that no one can get rid of. Don't know where you get your info, but you truly need to do bioresearch as I do for the truth. Unfortunately, we have been forced to eat GMO attacked foods for many years without being told. Thank you, Congress! No wonder as a health consultant and primary care provider I have to work with seriously ill people because of this!

Please see the response to your comment by Rebecca Lowery. There are valid scientific concerns about the safety of GMO foods.
