Is gluten REALLY the problem?
« on: November 15, 2013, 10:55:51 PM »
I came across this information while looking for ingredients in eye cream.  One ingredient, called Acrylates/Vinyl Isodecanoate Crosspolymer started my journey to "Crosspolymer" on Wikipedia.  This word produced two results:  Chlorhexidine and Shampoo.  The first is an antiseptic and the word "crosspolymer" doesn't come up until the subject of Deactivation is discussed.  The latter, however, is the reason for my post.  

Gluten is one of the most discussed topics today.  The proof is "Gluten-free" labels are on food packages in the grocery stores, in restaurants menus, on medications, and other consumer products.  This false blame serves the food and medical industry so the peoples of the world will continue to be uninformed of the true problem - excitotoxins like monosodium glutamate (MSG), hydrolyzed vegetable protein (HVP), autolyzed yeast extract (AYE), and more than 100 other ingredients.

More proof:  It can be virtually impossible for me to order from any restaurant without "gluten" coming into the conversation because the word "glutamate" is so similar.


So, when I read "Gluten or wheat free.... Yeast extract" I had to read the rest of the information.  The following is directly from Wikipedia:
(The source of the following information can be found here:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shampoo#Gluten_or_wheat_free )

Under "Specialized shampoos":

Gluten or wheat free
Many people suffer from eczema on their palms and their head. Some find that wheat and/or gluten (the protein found in many grains including wheat) is the cause, particularly if they are sensitive to this in food e.g. celiac disease wheat allergy. Shampoo can often go into the mouth, particularly for children, so all individuals who are on gluten-free diets may prefer to find a gluten-free shampoo. Shampoo manufacturers are starting to recognize this and there are now gluten/wheat free products available.
Wheat derivatives and ingredients from the other gluten grains are commonly used as binders to help the shampoo stick together and are also used as emollients in the form of oils. Following is a list of grain-derived shampoo ingredients. Most of these ingredients do not theoretically contain any intact wheat proteins, but may do so due to incomplete processing or contamination.

Triticum vulgare (wheat), hordeum vulgare (barley), secale cereale (rye), or avena sativa (oats), including any oil, protein, hydrosylate, or other extract from any part of the plant.
Tocopherol/Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), which may be derived from wheat
Hydrolyzed wheat protein / hydrolyzed wheat starch, also sometimes listed as hydrolyzed vegetable protein, stearyldimoniumhydroxypropyl or hydroxypropyltrimonium
Cyclodextrin, which may be produced from starch by means of enzymatic conversion
Amino peptide complex
Maltodextrin, dextrin, dextrin palmitate, or (hydrolyzed) malt extract
Phytosphingosine extract
Amino peptide complex
prolamine
Beta glucan
Disodium Wheat Germamido PEG-2-Sulfosuccinat
Fermented Grain Extract
AMP-Isostearoyl
PG-Propyl Silanetriol
PVP Crosspolymer
Ethyldimonium Ethosulfate
Yeast extract
Phytospingosine Extract
"Fragrance" is a broad category that may contain large numbers of chemicals that are otherwise unlisted on the label.


All-natural
Some companies use "all-natural", "organic", "botanical" or "plant-derived" ingredients (such as plant extracts or oils), combining these additions with one or more typical surfactants.



This information was under "Shampoo" of all areas on Wikipedia.  This is the first time I remember being disappointed in Wiki.


I hope this information is helpful to you and others.  Please join the Forum if you did find this information useful.  If you didn't, join and tell me so.


Keep up the good fight!!!

The chief idols in the desecrated temple of mankind are none other than the triple gods of Nationalism, Racialism and Communism, at whose altars governments and peoples, whether democratic or totalitarian, at peace or at war, of the East or of the West, Christian or Islamic, are, in various forms and in different degrees, now worshiping. ~~Shoghi Effendi, The Promised Day is Come
