Have you ever had gluten-free bread? It's terrible. That's because what makes bread delicious is gluten, a protein found in wheat that helps to give bread the firm but light texture and structure that makes carbs so irresistible. Now, though, science may have a fix. Scientists have engineered new strains of wheat that produce forms of gluten that decrease triggering of immune reactions in most people with coeliac disease.

Coeliac disease can be a nightmare, with the slew of gluten-triggered ails it brings. Those includes everything from gastrointestinal symptoms like bloating and diarrhoea, to psychological symptoms, anaemia, seizures... pretty much everything that can make the body feel bad, combined into one awful mess.

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.
