This morning, I received an e-mail from Shelley Case who is on the medical advisory board for the Celiac Disease Foundation, the Gluten Intolerance Group, and the Canadian Celiac Association. Shelley is also the author of “Gluten-Free Diet: A Comprehensive Resource Guide”.
Today’s e-mail is about a very important concern that could affect the health of 2.8 million Canadians with food allergies and gluten intolerance. For over 10 years, the Canadian Celiac Association and allergy associations have been advocating for better labeling laws so that Canadians can rightfully see the food allergens that may be in their foods. Progress was occurring, but now the proposed food allergen/gluten labeling regulations are in jeopardy. Please read Shelley’s e-mail below along with the links for more details. It is very important to support this movement. Without change, the health of many Canadians could be negatively impacted.
