Danish scientists, after analyzing data from thousands of pregnant women, say a high gluten diet may put offspring at higher risk for type 1 diabetes. Doctors say children of women with the highest intake of wheat, rye, and barley proteins had double the diabetes risk. ...

It can also increase inflammation in the gut and negatively affect the microbiome, the balance of beneficial bacteria in the gut. How to solve the problem? A standard recommendation has been to split the dose throughout the day in an attempt to increase the amount of iron actually absorb...
