Lundy releases video, recipes for celiac disease patients

BY Allison Cerra

BUFFALO, N.Y. Motivational speaker and specialty cookbook author Lisa A. Lundy has released a new short video and a document with free recipes on her Web site for patients suffering with celiac disease.

Lundy’s cookbook, “The Super Allergy Girl Allergy & Celiac Cookbook – From A Mother Who Knows”, is a gluten-free, casein-free, dairy-free, egg-free, peanut and tree-nut free and other allergen-free resource that is appropriate for both beginners and advanced bakers.

According to a study by the National Center for Health Statistics, the prevalence of reported food allergies has risen 24% among children under the age of 5 years and 19% among children ages 5 to 17 years during the past ten years. Celiac disease, a food related disease often confused with food allergies, is now four times more common today than it was 50 years ago say U.S. researchers. Celiac disease is an autoimmune disease in which eating foods containing wheat, barley, rye and other common grains sets off an immune response that can cause damage to the small intestine.

WHO to stop disclosing global tables of confirmed H1N1 cases; will continue to document pandemic

BY Michael Johnsen

GENEVA The World Health Organization announced on Thursday it would no longer provide the global tables showing the numbers of confirmed cases for all countries. However, as part of continued efforts to document the global spread of the H1N1 pandemic, regular updates will be provided describing the situation in the newly affected countries.

“At this point, further spread of the pandemic, within affected countries and to new countries, is considered inevitable,” WHO stated. “The 2009 influenza pandemic has spread internationally with unprecedented speed. In past pandemics, influenza viruses have needed more than six months to spread as widely as the new H1N1 virus has spread in less than six weeks,” making it extremely difficult for countries to try and confirm novel H1N1 infections through laboratory testing.

The novel H1N1 pandemic has been characterized, to date, by the mildness of symptoms in the overwhelming majority of patients, who usually recover, even without medical treatment, within a week of the onset of symptoms, WHO stated. But countries still need to be on guard for signals indicating a more virulent, or more deadly strain, such as spikes in rates of absenteeism from schools or workplaces or a surge in emergency department visits.
