Just a milligram of gluten a day?!

Did you know that an article posted on the US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health website states that just one milligram of gluten, once a day, can keep a Celiac from recovering?!

One milligram! One thousandth of a gram! That’s the equivalent of one tiny spec of sand. And not just any sand: very fine, small sand!!!

This might be something to think about the next time we’re tempted to take ┬ásomething…! One little crumb of gluten can keep us sick for up to three months. And one a day for two years is enough to keep us as sick as if we were eating gluten every day and not on a gluten-free diet.

It also make you wonder how much we’ll be eating under the acceptable 20 PPM rule….
