Gluten-free dieters may be eating extra helpings of toxic metals
FRIDAY, Feb. 17, 2017 (HealthDay News) - Higher levels of arsenic and mercury have been identified in individuals consuming gluten-free diets, according to a study published online Feb. 3 in Epidemiology. Of course, that doesn't mean our bodies are made to metabolize high levels of these metals without effect, but those who avoid wheat, barley, and rye due to celiac disease don't need to freak out just yet either. Specifically, the gluten-free people had two times as much arsenic and 70 percent higher mercury levels than the gluten eaters. She explained how a gluten free diet which everybody regards as healthy could be bad for our bodies. Of those, 73 said they adhered to a gluten-free diet. However, University of IL researchers report this trending eating regime may have a hidden danger - toxic metals.
Study author Dr Maria Argos said: "These results indicate that there could be unintended consequences of eating a gluten-free diet". Mercury levels were a shocking 70 percent higher in gluten-free participants, and arsenic levels were found to be almost twice the normal amount.
"In Europe, there are regulations for food-based arsenic exposure, and perhaps that is something we here in the United States need to consider", noted Argos, as reported by Fox News. More precisely, rice flour usually accumulates toxic metals which increase the risk of neurological illness, heart disease, and cancer. One possible reason is that many believe keeping clear of the protein reduces harmful inflammation. Researchers' analysis found that both mercury and arsenic levels were elevated in participants who kept a gluten-free diet. The study authors believe that people who consume gluten-free diets on a daily basis won't experience any benefits because they haven't been clinically proven.

"If you don't have celiac disease, then these diets are not going to help you", Dr. Peter HR Green, the director of the celiac disease center at the Columbia University's medical school, told the New Yorker. This is why more and more people are eating gluten-free foods. You know: Real food, and not manufactured crap from a box. Even celebrities Miley Cyrus, Kourtney Kardashian, and Gwyneth Paltrow have touted the diet as a path to a healthier lifestyle. And of course, that's fine; whatever anyone eats is their own business, whether they've received a diagnosis that makes eating gluten free a necessity or whether they simply choose to forgo gluten because they feel better doing so. Rice and rice flour, a common substitute in gluten-free cooking, can absorb toxic metals from the water, fertilizers, and soil it's grown in.
