BERN, Switzerland – Brand-new research from Bern University proves that it was NOT a gigantic asteroid that killed off the dinosaurs – it was gluten!

“When we first started looking at the root causes for extinction we were not familiar with celiac disease, “ said noted paleontologist Dr. Ernst Buehler.  “But after studying dinosaur fossils for decades were are convinced that gluten did them in,” he added.

“A massive seismic event, no doubt the force of a huge asteroid, did indeed affect the dinosaurs. But it only slowed them down a little bit, it did not lead to their demise.

“In fact, based on two petrified dinosaur stomachs found in the African nation of Zimbabwe in 2009, we believe that had they not eaten any cereal grains, they would still be roaming the earth.”

Gluten is a mixture of hundreds of proteins that come become “activated” in the baking process.  According to Dr. Buehler, there is no evidence that dinosaurs did any baking, “but we can’t rule that out, yet.”  But even without baking, grains like wheat, barley, and rye were deadly to the dinosaur digestive system, and therefore to its life.

Celiac disease affects dinosaurs in much the same way it affects humans.

Dr. Buehler’s findings are based on a seven-year study of the famous Zimbabwe stomachs, a review of countless thousands of fossils and dinosaur remains and the brilliant scientist’s encyclopedic knowledge of the Earth’s environment back in the Tertiary age when scientists believe an asteroid hit.


His conclusions fly in the face of a recent report by a team of American researchers who analyzes several core samples from 8,500 feet under the ocean’s floor. They concluded that the devastation caused by the asteroid was greater than if all the nuclear weapons ever made all exploded at once. The blast blew 70 percent of existing species into extinction.

“I have no argument with that date,” said Dr. Buehler. “But the dinosaurs were one of the 30 percent that survived.”

One strong argument for Dr. Buehler’s contention is the well-known ‘Amazon Basin Find.”

“Back in 1998, near the Brazilian city of Santarem, the well-preserved remains of 42 Triceratops were discovered,” Dr. Buehler said.  They appear to have died without violence and their size indicates they were too young to have died of old age.” When paleontologists looked at the Triceratops’ stomachs, they were shocked to see severe gluten damage to their stomachs, intestines and other organs.

Celica disease, untreated, causes permanent damage to your digestive system.  If only the dinosaurs knew to stay away from gluten, they might still be with us today.
