By Katy Bynum
One buzzword that keeps popping up in grocery stores, restaurants and even churches is gluten-free. Gluten, a protein found in grains like wheat, barley and rye, is difficult for some people's bodies to process, resulting in celiac disease, which damages the small intestine and interferes with absorption of nutrients. According to the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness, about 83 percent of Americans who have celiac disease are misdiagnosed or still not diagnosed. A gluten-free diet is essential for those with celiac disease, and May is Celiac Awareness Month.

Therapy sought to reduce major risk from minor bleeding that can follow stroke

The main problem with a minor bleed is the Iron in the blood, which is essential to transporting oxygen to the brain and body, but can be lethal when it comes in direct contact with brain tissue, said Dr. Adviye Ergul, vascular physiologist at the Medical College of Georgia at Georgia Regents University.
