However, if you know you’ve exposed yourself to something bad it might be prudent not to eat something full of Vitamin A for a little while.What foods are high in Vitamin
A? Healthaliciousness.com reports liver, paprika/red pepper/chili powder, sweet potatoes, carrots and dark leafy greens as the top 5 foods.

July 2011 Washington, D.C. Press Release on FDA Defining Gluten Free: After more than four years of inaction by the Food and Drug Administration
on their statutory requirement to finalize standards for gluten-free labeling on foods, U.S. Senators Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) and Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) have sent a letter to
FDA Commissioner Dr. Margaret A. Hamburg seeking answers for the extreme delay and an update on when the FDA will propose a final rule. “The regulatory uncertainty
surrounding FDA’s inaction has led to a proliferation of ‘gluten free’ standards and labels provided by 3rd party groups,” the senators wrote. “This creates confusion for
consumers, and hesitancy amongst producers on what their requirements will be. We ask that you provide us with an update on when FDA will promulgate a final rule,
why FDA has taken so long to issue this rule, and if there are any legal or regulatory hurdles that have prevented the timely implementation of this legislation.” Thanks
NFCA and ACDA for the update.

ELISA) costs approximately $500. And this does not include the cost of product or shipping. As long as the gluten-free community feels the site is useful and is willing to

Twelve Foot GF Cake Calls attention to lack of gluten free definition in Washington D.C.:
Are you frosted that celiac disease is so under diagnosed? Are you frosted that the FDA has not released gluten-free guidelines for food manufacturers? COME FROST
THIS INSTEAD: Cookbook author Jules Shepard, Whole Foods Markets, and Embassy Suites Washington DC (Downtown) are teaming up to build the world's tallest
gluten-free cake on May 4 at the Embassy Suites hotel. The event brings awareness to the prevalence of celiac disease and the need for the FDA to release long
overdue gluten-free guidelines. To lend your support go to www.americanceliac.org">www.1in133.org . Make a contribution, sign the petition and come to
Washington on May 4 to help frost this cake. All proceeds after expenses will go to benefit the American Celiac Disease Alliance (www.americanceliac.org ). The ACDA,
you might recall, was instrumental in passing the Food Allergen Labeling and Consumer Protection Act (FALCPA) so that "wheat" is declared when it is in a product. This
is the next step. The 12-foot cake and this effort are a tall order and need all of our help. Without You, there is no frosting on this cake! -by Beth Hillson President,
