For the study, researchers recruited 88 young people who visited New York University Langone’s Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital with gastrointestinal issues. All participants were under 21 years old. They all completed celiac disease tests and were eating a diet with gluten. Thirty of them were diagnosed with celiac disease while 58 were not.

Senior investigator Prof. Jeremiah Levine, a pediatric gastroenterologist comments: “Our study establishes the first measurable tie-in between environmental exposure to toxic chemicals and celiac disease. These results also raise the question of whether there are potential links between these chemicals and other autoimmune bowel diseases, which all warrant close monitoring and further study.”
