Gluten in unexpected places . . .

Just to freak you out, here's a list of surprising things that often contain gluten:

Adhesive tape, antibiotics, antiseptics, communion wafers, cortisone cream, cosmetics, envelope gum, fabric softener, hair dye, hair spray, lip balm, lip gloss, perfumes containing glycol and parabens, shampoo, soap and toothpaste.

Happily, the amounts absorbed into the body from these are so tiny that most people don't have any reaction at all.  For those of you who follow a strict vegetarian coeliac diet and are still suffering, investigate these at once! (and stop licking the soap)

We can still see you Gluten.
