An anonymous reader writes "When patients with celiac disease consume foods containing gluten — a protein present in wheat, barley and rye — their immune systems send out an alarm, triggering a response that can damage their intestines and prevent them from absorbing certain nutrients.

When bad men combine, the good must associate; else they will fall one by one,
an unpitied sacrifice in a contemptible struggle.
