Research Shows The Gluten-Free Diet Could Be More Harm Than Good
Posted: 27th March 2017
Many of our delicious, healthy meals contain some sort of gluten. However so many people choose not to eat gluten because they think it’s bad for them or it will make them fat.
“Gluten-free” is the new fashionable food trend. Plenty of people are choosing gluten free options even if they don’t suffer from coeliac disease.
However new research has shown that gluten-free foods can increase your exposure risk for toxic heavy metals.
Studies in the US have shown that people who are on gluten-free diets have twice as much arsenic in their urine as those who eat gluten. The study also showed 70% more mercury in their blood & high levels of lead and other metal substances,
The research concluded that rice flour may contain higher traces of toxic metals than wheat flour, rye, and barley – which contain gluten-and can’t be consumed by those who are gluten intolerant.
An increase in these toxins can lead to an increase in cancer and heart disease.
So the moral of the story, don’t consume gluten-free products before you do your research, consult a medical professional to see are you actually gluten intolerant and don’t believe everything you hear when it comes to these fad diet trends
