After reading Deep Nutrition by Catherine Shannahan, I've been thinking about the paleo diet in the context of epigenetics. I don't pretend to be have a lot of knowledge of epigentics, but it seems like our diet obviously does impact gene expression. One thing that bothers me is that by avoiding gluten, our bodies are less capable of processing it upon its reintroduction (as demonstrated by anecedotal evidence on PH). For those thinking of having children, I wonder if constant gluten avoidance will lead to our children being very gluten intolerant in the future due to epigenetic factors. As in, deadly intolerant. Would somebody more learned in DNA science be able to answer this question?
I'd think it'd be interesting to examine the diet of the parents of the current generation suffering celiacs disease.
