How to submit? – Celiac Disease Information

CeliacCentral.orgCeliac disease is caused by a reaction to a gluten protein found in wheat. The disease causes a reaction when exposed to this gluten protein, interfering with the absorption of nutrients.

Although this disease is an autoimmune disorder it is not fatal and can be easily treated with the right diet. In order to keep it effectively under control, the gluten free diet needs to be life-long. The NFCA (National Foundation for Celiac Awareness) which is a non-profit organization is dedicated to finding a cure for Celiac Disease. On the website you can find out more about the NFCA and their work as well as make donations to the cause. You will also be able to find information on the disease, find out about the research being done, and even find a list of gluten-free products that celiacs can use in their diets. There’s a whole section on gluten-free cooking, which can be a challenge, and you can ask Chef Edgar Steele any question you like on cooking without gluten. The site even offers visitors the possibility to shop for products that are apt for celiacs, as well as cookbooks, and literature on the disease.
