    One could only hope, but, I’m very doubtful. They should take the billions of dollars on research and put it into cleaner food and better product labeling. Better yet, Monsanto, ADM, Unilever and P&G should stop fucking with our food supply.

    While it may have a specific, known trigger unlike many other autoimmune diseases, celiac is still an autoimmune disease - most of them come with a wide variety of systematic and chronic symptoms that will never go away completely.
