Dr. Oz and a Great Show on Celiac Disease

My hairdresser text messaged me a few weeks ago and said that she had seen a show about celiac disease.  She is a thoughtful person and it was sweet of her to let me know about it.  Here is the link to Part 1 of the show with Dr. Oz.  It has a short video that is helpful for showing what the villi are like as they flatten in the small intestine due to gluten consumption.  Check it out:

You can find Part 2 on the same web page and Dr. Oz demonstrates how long the intestine is and also shows how much absorption can be limited due to celiac disease by pulling a parachute over the audience.
