The Celiac Disease Foundation (CDF), based in Los Angeles, came out in an article on Food Navigator USA challenging a report I highlighted yesterday linking celiac disease with genetically-modified organism (GMO) crops. The CDF states its medical advisory board does not support any scientific evidence for the link. Their position draws weight from plant geneticist Wayne Parrott, who points to flawed research cited in the the report by the Institute for Responsible Technology (IRT). CDF CEO Marilyn Geller emphasizes that most patients with celiac disease respond well to the gluten-free diet, and does not endorse the GMO-free diet advanced by IRT.
Above is a short video I made in a wheat field several years ago.
