Gluten can provoke intestinal inflammation that disrupts local immunity. Seventy-percent of our immune system is located within the small intestine - the very place that gluten causes damage. The small intestine lining, once injured by gluten, release inflammatory agents called cytokines that circulate in the blood and seem to have a predilection in some people for causing pimples, dry skin, wrinkled skin as well as serious skin disease particularly dermatitis herpetiformis.
