A weekend getaway for Mike and his family turns from fun, to a sort of, "house of horrors," after the wrong tortillas are purchased and consumed. Find out the aftermath of this mistake on our special extra spooky Halloween edition of the podcast!
It's scary and dangerous when people try and sell gluten containing products as gluten free. Mike and Cam examine some recent and not so recent examples of this, including a baker who is near the end of a prison term for doing just that. Shout outs to our friends Erin Smith @gfreefun and Jessica Hanson @tastymeditation.
Mike and Cam are pleased to be joined by Becca Hawkins, founder of the brand new non-profit, Portland Celiac, whose mission is to build a more inclusive community for those affected by celiac disease and gluten intolerance in the Portland metro area. Becca talks about what inspired her to start Portland Celiac and some of the biggest hurdles that she has faced. She also discusses how local groups like hers can serve our community and ultimately make systemic changes to improve the lives of people with celiac and gluten sensitivities.
This week we look at what's been happening in the world of gluten free labeling. It still feels like two steps forward and two steps back, but hopefully things are starting to change for the better. Also, Mike came across a person with a huge YouTube following who could use a little help understanding what organic and gluten free mean, and that there is actually a difference between the two.
Join Mike and Cam as they talk to Beyond Celiac's Chief Scientific Officer, Dr. Marie Robert and get a sneak peak at Beyond Celiac's upcoming 2nd Annual Research Symposium. They are doing exciting work to help bridge the patient/doctor gap and sponsoring research to find new treatments and therapies for celiac disease.
