Celiac Disease

Celiac Disease is a genetic disorder that we know affects at least 1 in 133 Americans - although most experts believe that the figure is very much higher than this.  Additionally, it's estimated that up to 15% of the world's population has a gluten intolerance/allergy. That's over a billion people on the planet  who can't tolerate gluten (wheat, rye, barley).  Those affected suffer damage to the villi (shortening and villous flattening) in the lamina propria and crypt regions of their intestines when they eat specific food-grain antigens (toxic amino acid sequences) that are found in wheat, rye, and barley.

Autism

It's very hard for any parent to be faced with the diagnosis of their child with autism.  Parenting is a big challenge for any parent, but when your child has a special circumstance it can be all the more daunting.  It's comforting to know, however, that there are many resources that are available either at a local level in your city through organisations and support groups, and at a national level through many great organisations.  The web is also a great tool with many very helpful sites.  Here are some useful websites as posted by healthworldnet.com and if you know of any other good resources, either in your area or on the web please feel free to post your comments.
