Sick? Tired? Grumpy?eBook - 2014
I will not remain silent! With over 35 years of experience as a pediatrician, looking after sick children, I have come to the conclusion that much of their sickness stems from their food, and especially from eating gluten. Every day in my Clinic I see babies, children, teenagers and exhausted parents who are suffering from a wide range of illness. Of course, not all of this illness is caused by gluten. But gluten-illness turns out to be a major contributor to chronic ill health. So, this book is devoted to explain all about gluten and the harm it can cause you, your family and your community. Everyone is at risk from eating gluten: any person, any symptom, any time. Gluten illness is slowly progressive. Symptoms can sneak up on you. You might not be aware of your deteriorating health. Children feel sick, tired and grumpy. Often they are called naughty, or suffer from behavior or learning problems. Dr Ford asked the parents of 50 families affected by gluten to write their stories. He asks: "Is eating gluten worth the risk? Gluten cannot be digested by any of us, and causes gut inflammation in everyone. It can trigger irreversible autoimmune disease, cause celiac disease, damage nerves, upset the brain, spark skin disease, and much more. But once gluten-damage has become established, it can remain permanently. So. . . is eating gluten worth the risk? As Martin Luther King Jr. said: "Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter". It is my belief that gluten-harm matters a lot. Therefore, I continue to speak out about it. I have already written many books about the issues surrounding Gluten Syndrome and eating Zero Gluten. My goal is to increase "global gluten consciousness".Dr Rodney Ford has spent his career helping people with food allergy and gluten-sensitivity, gluten intolerance.
