The inspiration for this film came after director Michael Frolichstein struggled with a series of "mystery aliments" before finally being diagnosed with Celiac Disease at age 40. Michael was shocked to learn that this auto-immune disease, which affects 1% of the US population, is 83% undiagnosed or misdiagnosed. His journey to meet others who had suffered, as well as to get answers from experts, led him to uncover more mysteries within his own family. The documentary ultimately explores what we can do individually and as a society to advance the conversation and raise awareness about the disease.

Part 2 of our Late Summer News and Notes features more great listener letters, including a few frustrating stories; one leading to multiple family members getting diagnosed, and a second from someone who is still searching for answers. We also report on a registry with way too many false negative celiac blood tests and a Beyond Celiac post showing that we are all in need of treatments in addition to the gluten free diet. Shout outs to our TCP Inner Circle and much more!EP 342 - www.celiacproject.com/the-podcast/ ... See MoreSee Less

Mike and Cam reach into their mailbag and share some current events for Part 1 of late summer News and Notes. They share a listener's unbelievable tale of restaurant misconduct that reminds the guys of the JD's challenges at Colonial Williamsburg. Even worse is a story from Newsweek about a man whose sister crosses the line in his gluten free kitchen. Also a couple from Colorado known for pizza and so much more!EP 341 - www.celiacproject.com/the-podcast/ ... See MoreSee Less
