      Estragon: "People are bloody ignorant apes."
      ― Samuel Beckett, Waiting for Godot

      *     *     *     *

      So many ignorant people do not suspect that Celiac Disease
      pathogenesis can be traced to dairy consumption, because
      doctors are not exposed to significant nutritional instruction
      in medical school.

      In March of 2007, the journal Clinical and Experimental
      Immunology published a Swedish study revealing the powerful
      mucosal reactivity to cow's milk in patients with Celiac Disease.
      Researchers blamed this reaction on milk proteins, particularly
      casein. Scientists concluded:

      "Our data raise the possibility that sensitivity to cow's milk
      may be a feature in a proportion of patients with Celiac Disease
      and may therefore contribute to persistent symptoms in coeliac
      patients who are on a gluten-free diet. The finding that casein,
      but not alpha-lactalbumin, induced an inflammatory response similar
      to that produced by cow's milk identifies casein as one candidate
      behind the observed reaction to cow's milk. Casein has also been
      suggested as an environmental trigger of other autoimmune disorders..."

      Epidemiologists agree upon two things when the subject of Celiac
      Disease is raised. First, all agree that Celiac is an auto-immune
      disease. The word 'auto' means self. For those with a genetic
      pre-disposition, the self (one's body) reacts to a foreign
      substance. Many identify gluten as the causative agent. The
      second things scientists agree upon is that Celiac Disease is
      slow to be diagnosed. What scientists do not consider is the
      enormous damage caused by milk sugar, i.e., lactose
      mal-absorption. How often does one see a two-year old being
      wheeled around in a baby carriage chewing on a loaf of
      French bread? Compare that frequency to infants sucking
      up bottles of cow's milk formula, or enjoying an ice cream

      Lactose (milk sugar) is made up of two other sugars, glucose
      and galactose. Many humans develop a condition called
      galactosemia, which can be quite caustic to human cells.

      Celiac Disease etiology is a condition which is hardly ever
      debated by experts who have concluded that wheat gluten is
      the culprit. Yet, it is a medical dilemma similar to the
      "which came first" debate, "the chicken or the egg?"

      Which did come first? Why, the egg, of course. In order to
      create rock Cornish Game Hens, poultry breeders mate Plymouth Rock
      Chickens with Cornish Game Hens which then lay the eggs to become
      a new species, the Rock Cornish Game Hen. In a similar sense,
      which substance was first consumed to initiate the digestive
      disorders collectively called Celiac? Was it a toddler eating
      a loaf of bread, or the naïve infant enjoying a bowl after bowl
      of Greek yogurt sweetened with jelly?

      Since 1994, Notmilk has been lecturing and writing about the
      milk and dairy connection to Celiac Disease. We have met many
      hundreds of people so diagnosed, and without exception, every
      individual with Celiac Disease confirms the negative affects
      that milk and cheese consumption also have on the human body.

      The July, 2014 issue of the Journal of Pediatric Gastroenterology
      includes a paper which comments on the increasing prevalence
      of celiac disease (CD). What too is increasing? The per capita
      consumption of two concentrated dairy products, ice cream and
      cheese. Ten pounds of milk are required to manufacture one pound
      of hard cheese. Twelve pounds of milk are required to manufacture
      one pound of ice cream. Researchers at Harvard Medical School,
      Massachusetts General Hospital, and the Department of Pediatrics
      at Politencnia della Marche in Ancona, Italy observed:

      "The prevalence of celiac disease (CD) varies greatly, but
      several reports have shown that CD is increasing in frequency
      in different geographic areas...The new epidemiology of CD is
      now characterized by an increase of new cases in the historical
      CD areas (northern Europe and the United States) and more
      interestingly in a spread of the disease in new regions
      (Asian countries). A significant change in diet habits,
      particularly in gluten consumption as well as in infant
      feeding patterns are probably the main factors that can
      account for these new trends in CD epidemiology."

      Nine years ago, Notmilk reported that the March, 2005 issue
      of the journal Digestion noted a powerful correlation
      between Celiac Disease and lactose intolerance.

      The Celiac Disease Foundation's (CDF) official position is that
      the cause of celiac disease is "unknown." CDF's definition of
      celiac disease:

      "A lifelong digestive disorder, found in individuals who are
      genetically susceptible, that results in damage to the small
      intestine by interfering with the absorption of nutrients.
      Celiac Disease (CD) is unique in that a specific food component,
      gluten, has been identified as the culprit. Gluten is the common
      name for the offending proteins in specific cereal grains that
      are harmful to persons with CD. These proteins are found in
      all forms of wheat (including durum, semolina, spelt, kamut,
      einkorn, and faro), and related grains, rye, barley, and tritcale.
      Damage to the mucosal surface of the small intestine is caused by
      an immunologically toxic reaction to the ingestion of gluten."

      Scientists at the Catholic University, Department of Internal
      Medicine, Rome, Italy observed a high prevalence of Celiac
      Disease patients who had previously been diagnosed as lactose
      intolerant, leading them to conclude:

      "Celiac Disease is much more common than previously suspected."

      Since 2005, we see, but do not process information.
      We note connections, but learn really nothing.

      Notmilk believes that ALL humans have various forms of Celiac
      Disease, some very weak, and some life threatening.

      Give up all wheat and dairy for one week and note how
      well you sleep, and how your lifetime of congestion has
      miraculously gone. Then, dare to rationalize that it is
      all coincidence. Try to convince me that I am wrong.

      skin, physical and mental health is amazing. You won't go back!"
