People with celiac disease can’t digest gluten normally. When they eat it, the protein prompts the immune system to attack the small intestine, leadin...

Conclusion This study has found that while overall gluten consumption in people without coeliac disease may not be related to heart disease risk, avoiding whole grains (wheat, barley and rye) in order to avoid gluten may be associated with increased heart disease risk.

As with all studies of this type, it is possible that other factors may affect the results. However, the researc...
