Gluten affects learning and behavior
Posted By Alison On Jun 19, 2007 @ In Celiac Disease,Gluten Intolerance,News & Research | No Comments
Ron Hoggan, Ed. D., is the author of a wonderful book, Dangerous Grains, about celiac disease and gluten-associated medical conditions. I consider this book a must-read for anyone with celiac disease or gluten intolerance.
Dr. Hoggan has recently written an article entitled “How Gluten Grains Can Impede Scholastic Achievement” which appeared in the Price Pottinger Nutrition Foundation Journal in April (Hoggan, R. “How Gluten Grains Can Impede Scholastic Achievement” Health & Healing Wisdom, Spring 2007, Vol. 31; #1). He has given me permission to share his article on this site.
I encourage everyone to read it in its entirety, however the article requires full focus because it is chock-full of information, some of it quite technical with regards to brain functionality. For those of you who may not read the article, I hope you will at least read what I interpret as Dr. Hoggan’s main points (leaving out the technical stuff). For those of you who want to get to the head of the class, go ahead and read the whole article – it is really good.
“How Gluten Grains Can Impede Scholastic Achievement” – the main points:
Wow – did you follow the logic here? Quite fascinating, even moreso when you read the full arguments. He concludes by stating that the food guide recommendations (the pyramid), which advocate gluten grains and dairy products, are misleading and dangerous.
For other reading by Dr. Hoggan, see this list of articles on a variety of topics related to gluten intolerance. Thank you, Dr. Hoggan, for the article and for the work that you do!
