I tolerate wheat and rice equally well, don't see any problems with wheat.
Is it healthier to eat gluten-free, even if you don't have a wheat intolerance?
^^ no good evidence that it's healthier
I don't drink coffee, but my cousin and her husband drink it daily, made in a French press not filtered in a drip pot. That's why I asked, I'd never seen that health concern about coffee before and I was pretty surprised.
I think I got that wrong. I believe the comparison was not between wheat and rice, but between wheat and gluten-free grains.
Saved for posterity
I don't know for sure. However, you could be intolerant and be attributing some issues to other things, or not know why they are. My gluten intolerance only noticably affected me during running. I had severe breathing problems while running. I accidentally found it was gluten when i was eating rice for a month on vacation, and i had no breathing problem. Came back home and again the breathing issues began.
However, there may be other issues too that gluten could be causing that I will only know if I stay off gluten for a month or more. Since my family is basically wheat eating, that's not proving possible.
This is exactly my point. I am admittedly a huge coffee snob, and alternate between brewing methods, two of which don't use a paper filter. I eat a balanced diet of fish, just about only whole grains (including brown rice), chicken, very little red meat and typically have a glass of red every night or two. My lipid levels are fantastic. The rise in cholesterol linked to the unfiltered coffee is even hugely shadowed by the effects of the caffeine from drinking that amount of coffee. Here is a quote from an article referencing a Johns Hopkins study
If you drink on average six cups of coffee a day, then cholesterol is the least of your worries. Coffee's benefits far outweigh this high-dose risk.
Not in the slightest. If you have celiac, then concern yourself. Otherwise, load up your pasta bowl.
Just switch them to biriyani and you will be fine
