Celiac Disease and Gluten

  • Aired: 04/14/2011
  • 26:46
  • Rating: NR
Most of us think nothing of eating foods with wheat and grains containing gluten. But for roughly three million Americans, gluten acts like a poison, damaging their intestines. This often-misdiagnosed autoimmune disorder is celiac disease. Untreated, it can lead to anemia, osteoporosis and even cancer. We'll examine celiac disease and gluten sensitivity, from diagnosis to living gluten-free.
