Celiac disease

>> Wednesday, August 6

Here's something I learned from dNeero - celiac disease. According to my trusty friend Wiki, "is an autoimmune disorder of small intestine the that occurs in genetically predisposed people of all ages from middle infancy." Somehow it can interfere the absorption of nutrients from the food we eat. People who have this disease cannot tolerate gluten. When people with this disease take in food containing gluten their immune system responds by damaging the small intestine.

Just thinking of diseases makes me sad and weak. Hmph... enough of this...
