Emergency Preparedness – WHEAT MAY NOT BE GOOD FOR YOU, MAN ! ! !
Thomas Brunoski, MD and specialist in food allergies and nutritional medicine in Westport, Connecticut, says of gluten intolerance (also known as Celiac disease), “. . .more than two million Americans may be gluten-intolerant, and most don’t know it. When such a person eats gluten – found in wheat, rye, and barley – the small intestine becomes inflamed and nutrients are not absorbed properly. Classic symptoms include itchy skin rash, diarrhea, abdominal cramping and other intestinal problems. But: some sufferers have anemia, headaches, hair loss, joint pain, liver inflammation and/or seizures. Gluten is known to cause hearing loss in adolescents, also. People with these symptoms should be tested for gluten intolerance.”
Every day is practice day for emergency preparedness. If the foundation of your stored foods program is wheat, see if all members of your family can tolerate it in their daily diet. Otherwise, milder grains, dehydrated foods and case goods may have to be the core of daily bulk, requiring more frequent rotation of these lesser shelf life foods. Hey, everyone can eat Twinkies and Jell-O, and kept dry, they’ll store forever.
