Climate Chaos demands the first step toward Singularity

The Transhumanist community mostly ignores Climate Destabilization, as if technological evolution were divorced from the natural world. I propose a radical view for the initial stage of approaching singularity, intimately entwined with our growing climate crisis,Gas to Liquid: Civilization Phase Change.Greater connectivity is our best chance to escape the growth model of economics and civilization hindering transition from fossil fuel.Tim Garrett analyzed civilization mathematically as a heat…See More

Poo Fools (us all)

Day after day I see Atheist Nexus members argue scripture details, spreading theistic memes here, without realizing their self-betrayal. Memetics still seems, to most, an abstract intellectual debate. We can't grasp religion as an infective agent. We can't see ourselves as merely copying machines for viruses.…

Ruth, just as a point of information: could you please edit the title on your Fuck You= Australia's Coal Policy piece?  Back when we actually had moderators on here, they used to be concerned about that getting A|N flagged for inappropriate content.  I'm not a moderator, but I think that's important enough to consider.

Thanks in advance.

Hey, Ruth!

Considering your environmental consciousness, I thought today's entry from delancyplace.com was worth your time.  Wasn't sure if you were subscribed to them.  I am, and their daily vignettes I find both interesting and occasionally very important.

Ruth,

I made a comment in a discussion that was for you - I'm copying it here so you will be sure to see it:

About 30% of people with IBS are estimated to have non-celiac gluten sensitivity.  More may have non-gluten food allergies.

I've been looking into the research on non-classical food allergies (not the kind of food allergy everyone knows about that may cause anaphylaxis).  The research on adults almost all relates to people with IBS. 

There isn't a lab test for non-celiac gluten sensitivity, but the best diagnostic procedure would be to do what was done in a study on NCGS.  They say people with NCGS were in two separate groups - people who were sensitive only to gluten grains, and people with multiple food allergies including gluten grains. 

The people with multiple food allergies were likely to have other allergy problems as well, such as allergic rhinitis, eczema and asthma.  So if you have allergy problems and IBS, food allergies are especially likely to be causing the symptoms. 

As was done in the study, one should first get tests for celiac disease, either the blood test panel or a biopsy of the small intestine.  Celiac disease may be misdiagnosed as IBS.
They did double-blind placebo-controlled food challenges, but in practice, a food challenge usually just means eating some of the food, after the hypoallergenic elimination diet described in the study, and seeing what happens.

Also, people with IBS may be helped by a low-FODMAPS diet. FODMAPS include the fructans that you already know cause problems for you.  I'm not sure if non-classical food allergies can cause people to be more sensitive to FODMAPS - it could be that if you quit eating certain foods, you would no longer have a general sensitivity to FODMAPS. 

It's a really good idea to know if you have NCGS, because it's theorized that NCGS may be a precursor to celiac disease - so avoiding gluten could prevent getting celiac disease in the future.  Celiac disease is an autoimmune disease, so if you have a family history of autoimmune problems or you have autoimmune problems yourself, you are more likely to have celiac disease. 

I have a LOT of those non-classical food allergies, but I'm not sensitive to FODMAPS in general.  I have BOTH autoimmune problems (Hashimoto's and probably celiac disease), AND allergy problems (allergic rhinitis and non-classical food allergies).
