Encore: Dr. Alessio Fasano 'Godfather of Gluten Free' speaks on Gluten
January 2, 2018
Hosted by Dr. Kristine Reese
Alessio Fasano, MD is a world renowned expert in gluten and celiac research and is known as the “Godfather of Gluten Free". Author of “Gluten Freedom”, published in seven languages is an engaging story of the past, present, and future of gluten-related disease. There is an explosion of gluten-related health problems today. Two components coming together creating a perfect storm. First, the grains we’re eating have changed dramatically - genetically. In our great-grandparents era, wheat contained very low amounts of gluten and it was harvested once a year. Now we’ve engineered our grains to substantially increase yields and dependencies. We are all susceptible to the consequences of these extremely rich, gluten-containing grains. Second, is celiac disease that’s increased 4-fold in the last 40 years, and autoimmune diseases, like the epidemic of Thyroid disease. We’re changing our environment faster than our bodies can adapt to it. Join us for a controversial episode about gluten.
