Sharing her extensive research, professional experience, investigative journalism, and personal history, health activist Nadine Grzeskowiak takes us on a journey from the throes of celiac disease to the thriving health of a mountain climber. Written as an easy-to-read memoire style account, Nadine's passion for helping to prevent others from necessary sufferings shines through as she personalizes the crucial wisdom she has gathered while becoming an authority on this topic. Dough Nation investigates the health, social, political and economic factors regarding gluten intolerance and celiac disease, and how the target untapped market in the world is being manipulated." Compelling stories from the authors' circle of patients, friends and family reinforce this primary call for a national mass screening for celiac disease. This provocative evidence of how much we need to be paying attention to the power of the food we are eating describes the lack of health care education regarding gut disease, the history of celiac in the United States and the world, and how individuals can become their own health care advocate.
