In reading another book, I learned that most of the diseases related to celiac decrease in likelihood of occurance after five years on a gf diet. All, really, except for cancer. Yikes! My chances of getting non-hodgkins lymphoma are 70 times higher than that of the non-celiac population. It stays bad even on a gf diet. I hate the thought of living such a health-conscious life and I might have to deal with cancer anyway. Or maybe my health conscious life will keep me from developing it. That's what I'll go with.
