Mike's nephew Sam joins the show to talk about a couple of recent "speed bumps" he had over spring break. The most harrowing story has to do with his trip to China town, with a new group of acquaintances, that didn't end so well for Sam. Mike and Cam help Sam break it all down and they discuss what could be done differently to avoid such pitfalls and some useful tools to turn to when thrust into these kinds of situations.
Mike and Cam discuss the U.S. panel's decision to forgo universal celiac testing and what the repercussions might be for the gluten-free world and our society in general. We also take a look at some other hot celiac health topics including the relationship that has been found between CD and anorexia and an the common virus that may trigger celiac disease. The latter is a huge breakthrough, could it ultimately lead to a vaccine?
Cam gets "glutened" by a product that doesn't contain any gluten ingredients. This leads us to a "deeper dive" into the things that make us feel safe or less safe when buying products at the store or going to a restaurant. We also talk about a couple of Nima posts that our friend Jessica Hanson of Tasty Meditation and The Gluten Free Watchdog have shared.
