Abstract: n The metabolism of gluten protein which produces zonulin, which in turn is a key factor in controlling permeability in the intestinal walls, is a proven scientific fact. There are many papers associating this particular phenomenon to many autoimmune diseases. These recently published works about wheat and previous ones about sugar lead to the deduction that wheat and sugar are suspected in many autoimmune diseases. As diseases go, there is a range of ‘sickness’ associated with each disease. The symptoms which are frequently present are chronic aches and pain; many of the symptoms have been captured by brain imaging technology. Depending on the level of sickness, people may turn up for work as normal but not be at their best. Many different persons with various autoimmune diseases, not sick enough to stay home, would evidently cause a work environment that is more stressful for everyone.

Keywords: Autoimmune disease, undiagnosed ADD, diabetes, productivity, aches, pains.
