Gluten Creates A Perfect Storm For Disease. When the gluten proteins are not sufﬁciently chopped down to size, they permeate the underlying immune tissue of the gut and lead to overstimulation of the immune system. That means your immune system can backﬁre and actually make you sick, such as with autoimmune conditions like Hashimoto’s disease. In fact, several of the most serious health conditions we face, including diabetes, thyroid disease, and even autism (plus about ﬁfty-two other diseases), may be linked to gluten consumption. The consensus among scientists is that gluten- containing grains are a mistake of evolution— that is, gluten creates a perfect storm of the conditions needed for human disease.
