WMKY

The Gluttony and Gluteny Show

Mar 31, 2017

Health Matters regular Jean Jones and her dietary intern Darian Burkes join our crew for a discussion of gluten sensitive enteropathy, Mexican soda taxes, diets for bariatric surgery, and the cancer risks of obesity and vitamin D. If you listen to one show on these topics on this weekend, it should be this one.

Tip: Gluten-sensitive enteropathy, also known as celiac disease, is an allergic reaction of your immune system to gluten proteins in barley, wheat, and rye. The reaction causes inflammation in your intestines leading to difficulty absorbing your food.
