Abstract
Autoimmune and inflammatory diseases such as Crohn?s and Colitis are major health concerns with their prevalence rising worldwide, especially in industrialized countries. There is much evidence supporting the connection to gluten and components of wheat, gliadin, the glycoprotein known as lectin (Wheat Germ Agglutinin, WGA), potentially leads to increased intestinal permeability and immune mediated damage to the intestines, thus increasing intestinal inflammation in non-celiac disease patients. A publication; Institute of Food Science and Technology and Nutrition reviewed through Elsevier offers a very powerful comment on Food Supplements and Immune Function in Humans; ?There is growing evidence showing that certain nutrient exert immunomodulatory actions and consequently may constitute interesting adjuvant strategies for prevention and/or amelioration of immune-related diseases.? According to Dr. Ron Hoggan, Ed. D. Co-author: Dangerous Grains and Cereal Killers and author of The Dark Side of Wheat states that WGA glycoprotein can do direct damage to the majority of tissues in the human body without requiring a specific set of genetic susceptibilities and/or immune-mediated articulations. This may explain why chronic inflammatory and degenerative conditions are endemic to wheat- consuming populations even when overt allergies or intolerances to wheat gluten appear exceedingly rare.
