Autoimmunity includes conditions as diverse as psoriasis, Crohns, ulcerative colitis, hypothyroidism and vasculitis.

Know the best way to keep your autoimmune condition going?  Or to set up an autoimmune condition?  Eat gluten.  Often.  Yes, even in non-coeliacs and people who are NOT sensitive to gluten at all, regular consumption of gluten is a risk factor.  Numerous peer-reviewed studies published in prestigious scientific journals confirm this finding.  And yet it is little known.

Part of the reason gluten can trigger autoimmunity is that it damages YOUR gut.  You must have a damaged gut in order to have an autoimmune condition.

And yet this isn’t common knowledge.  Why?  In my opinion, there are three reasons:

  1. On average it takes the latest, proven scientific findings 25 years to percolate into medical practice
  2. Medical schools teach only half-day nutrition during a student’s 6 years of study.
  3. Medical schools do not include modules on how to critically assess scientific research.
