“Got Leaky Gut?” Follow-up
In a follow-up to my “Got Leaky Gut?” article, I found an interesting link posted on Robb Wolf’s Paleo Solutions blog this morning. Via video Robb and his wife Nikki are in Italy enjoying a gluten free pizza. They’re surprised that they are able to encounter so many gluten free products in a “wheat dominated” culture. Robb links an article found in Scientific American Magazine on the relationship between gut permeability (leaky gut) and autoimmune disease. The article is based on the research of Alessio Fasano, an Italian researcher in the US who was one of the first to note the connection between gut permeability and the development of autoimmune disease. The full article can be found here – it’s a must read!
