His major area of interest is the relationship between your food and your health – good or bad. In his clinics he is constantly seeing people who are suffering from eating foods that are making them ill. He has been interested in the relationship between eczema and food allergy for a long time. More recently, he has discovered that gluten plays a large part in the patho-physiology of eczema.
Dr Ford graduated with Honours from the University of New South Wales in 1974 (MB BS). He went on to study food allergy and intolerance problems in New Zealand, Australia and the United Kingdom, was admitted as a Fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Physicians in Paediatrics (FRACP) in 1981 and was awarded his Doctorate of Medicine (MD) by the University of New South Wales in 1982 for his thesis titled Food hypersensitivity in children: diagnostic approaches to milk and egg hypersensitivity. This was regarded as a major work regarding the diagnosis of food allergies in children.

This ebook really put everything together for me, a gluten intolerant person. When you receive a diagnosis there is so much information to wade through. Unfortunately I've run into plenty of contradictory information, even by advocacy groups. If you want clear cut answers to how gluten is afffecting your body; and why even a little is not good for you even if you don't have 'apparent' symptoms; read this book. I've already given two gift subscriptions to friends.

A book to shake-up your view of health and gluten. If you think you pretty much know about the hazards of wheat and gluten, but haven't yet read Dr. Ford's theory about gluten as primarily having its harmful effect by damaging the brain and nerves, you're in for a riveting read. Also, if you think this is rare, how about estimates of 8-10% of the population? He is not alone in his concerns.
