Did you know Papier Mache is made of the very ingredients also found in breads, pastas and processed grain products? So if Papier Mache turns rock solid after layers are built up, couldn’t the same effect be happening in our GI Tract after years of eating refined flour products? I guess they don’t call wheat “GLU”-ten for nothing.

This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Gluten – friend or foe? This was the talk that got the standing ovation and changed everyone’s eating habits for the rest of evening. Over the course of 15 minutes Dr. Rodney Ford, MB. BS. MD. FRACP, and a pioneer in the field of paediatric food allergies, convinced an audience of 500 that nobody is equipped to digest gluten. How did he do it? By using lego! Dr. Ford showed us the indigestible gluten protein is chased by the antibodies that our systems create to combat the gluten. Based on decades of research, Dr. Ford believes that abundant health can be achieved by anyone who eats the appropriate foods.
