Early Exposure to Gluten May Help Babies Avoid Celiac Risk

Interestingly enough Health Day News is reporting that exposing babies to gluten may actually help them avoid Celiac Disease in the future. " Modifying an infant's diet to include the protein gluten while the mother is still breast-feeding could lower the risk of celiac disease, a common intestinal disorder, according to a new Swedish study.

That finding may sound counterintuitive, because celiac disease is a condition in which the lining of the small intestine is damaged by gluten-containing foods." MORE
