Celiac Disease Insights: Clues to Solving Autoimmunity by Alessio Fasano

Here is the link to the Scientific American article that has garnered quite a bit of attention in the CD community.  It is amazing what this man, and others like him, have done to try and understand this elusive and “chameleon” of a disease, as I like to refer to it. I was one of […]
