While virtually 100% of the population ingests these grains in one form or another and 30% to 40% of the population carry the genetic markers of the disease (HLA-DQ2 or type 8), only 2% to 3% of those with genetic markers develop the disease. This indicates that other genetic factors and environmental… CONTINUE READING
