Lately many grocery stores have been stocking their shelves with gluten free alternatives to nearly every kind food. This is a result of the widely spreading gluten free diet. Millions around the world have either completely eliminated gluten from their diet, or have greatly reduced the amount they consume each day.
The reason for this change in diet is actually quite simple. Many people are reducing their gluten consumption because they have celiac disease; when gluten causes inflammation in the small intestine of those with this illness. Most people with this disease go their whole lives without even noticing it because in most cases the inflammation is minor, but in fact 70-80% of the population has some form of gluten sensitivity and most likely that includes you.

Too bad you’re eating a lot more than just eggs:
David DiSalvo, a writer at Forbes, decided to really look into the eggs in popular fast food breakfast sandwiches. What he discovered was that their “eggs” are really a strange concoction that includes eggs and “premium egg blend.” Some things that are in this special blend include glycerin, a solvent found in soap and shaving cream, dimethylpolysiloxane, a silicone that can also be found in Silly Putty, and calcium silicate, a sealant used on roofs and concrete. The age of just cracking an egg and cooking it has long since passed.

It’s crazy to think how something so simple, something so common, something so plain could be such a crucial element to our body’s daily function. It’s not difficult to lose water, every time we sweat, cry, go to the bathroom, and even breath our bodies are getting rid water.
