Gluten in Medicine

According to the Mayo Clinic, the rate of celiac disease has almost quadrupled over the past 50 years. Celiac disease is a serious, genetic autoimmune disorder in which ingesting gluten causes damage to the villi of the small intestine. The only treatment
is the total elimination of gluten-containing products, including wheat, barley, and rye sources. For some, failure to avoid these can lead to life-threatening complications. Currently, this is nearly impossible to determine the presence of gluten in prescription
medicine.

41 Kids Have Died in Hot Cars in 2019

In 2018, at least 52 children were killed in hot cars, the highest number on record.  On average, 38 children die each year from heat-related deaths after being left or becoming trapped in a vehicle.  The temperature inside a car can reach 125 degrees in
a matter of minutes—even with the windows cracked—and a child’s body overheats 3-5 times faster than that of an adult.  Together, these factors create a deadly situation that technology could easily fix.
