Well I created this 'package' of hubs about gluten free diet

    One of those Hubs is unpublished, either by you or due to violating HubPages rules.

    One of those Hubs reads like a spun-rewritten version of one of the others.

    Overall, I don't feel like a gluten-intolerant human wrote them.  I live with a housemate who can't eat gluten, and I know what their life is like, and your Hubs read like you thought this would be cool and trendy to write about, and not like this is a personal subject to you or that you have any experience dealing with it.  Especially your Hub about gluten and cancer.

    Well, thank you for your review smile
    Yes I unpublished one of them because I realized I have rewritten the same paragraph, as I keep them on Word doc.
    I am in the field of discovering how it is to live with a gluten free diet, as I think I am intolerant.

    I am curious at your statement that a gluten-free diet protects against cancer, as I have not managed to find any such assertions on a search of the medical literature via PubMed.

    There are some studies implying that people WITH COELIAC DISEASE may be at higher risk of intestinal cancer, and that this risk may be reduced by strict compliance with a gluten-free diet.

    There is however a lack of consensus among scientists and clinicians concerning that topic. Logically, it might well be the case, because constant irritation/inflammation could well provoke malignant changes in gut tissue.

    However THERE IS NO EVIDENCE WHATSOEVER in the scientific literature that a gluten-free diet protects healthy people from any form of cancer.

    I note you are making all sorts of wild health claims in your articles, without backing them up with any reference to properly controlled scientific studies, or indeed to any studies at all. As far as I am concerned, your claims have nil validity as a result.

      Well I am not saying it protects people. I am saying it helps preventing. And we all know that a healthy living and healthy diet does that.

        And there is nothing intrinsically healthy about the gluten free diet for those who are not intolerant, so that seems rather irrelevant to hyping gluten free as a way to "beat cancer".  That seems like an irresponsible hub title.

          Ok, I will edit it.

        No, according to the medical literature, it does not help to prevent cancer in healthy people!
        If you maintain otherwise, cite me, at the very least, a properly controlled, randomised study, or, even better, a meta-analysis or systematic review that backs your statements.

        Oh, and if you do not know what these terms mean, you have no right to be writing articles with any medical content that goes beyond your own anecdotal experience.

    "For people with celiac disease, a gluten-free diet is essential. But for others, unless people are very careful, a gluten-free diet can lack vitamins, minerals, and fiber."

      Wohoo hellooo it is a diet who has the "free" term. It means that there is a lack of some certain nutritient in there. So what should you do in this case? Replace it with something else! And the lack of vitamins, minerals etc happens to the ill people too! Why is it not mentioned? Every thing you lack, you should substitute.
      What a negativity, relax people, take it easy. No one told you obey this!

    You posted links to your Hubs in the "Improving Your Hub" forum, which is where people post links to their Hubs if they want genuine constructive feedback.

    If that's not what you came here for, the mistake is yours, not ours.

      I did not say that I did not want your honest opinion. It is that you are backfiring at me like I made you obey that in any costs. Thank you for taking time to check my hubs and comment. I am relatively new here, and that is why I posted in this forum and not an other, so I can improve.

        I don't know what you think that's supposed to mean in Albanian, but your online translator is showing.
