Since we are looking to learn about arsenic in Celiac patients versus the general population, it might be most helpful to go a step farther and take a look at people with the same or similar diets. For example, if we compare levels in a Celiac patient with the levels of other people who have a similar diet, then the study will be more reliable than comparing random people who eat vastly different things. Would it be possible to compare arsenic levels of Celiac patients to non-celiac family members in the same households (or roommates)? This would give us a more accurate comparison.
