Gluten has got a bad rap in the last decade. In fact, you can interpret it many ways. Gluten is bad for you, and they say gluten is not bad unless you are one of the rare few that have celiac (gluten intolerance disease). Let’s be honest, they (doctors, researchers, food enthusiasts) say exactly the same things about wine, chocolate, and life in general in the media and research. The wine has antioxidants and is good for you – but wine is alcohol, addictive, poisonous, and evil. The research shows both sides of the argument, and then everything is covered by an “everything is good in moderation” hat. Everyone is happy and likes that hat because it puts the blame on someone else. Then we can go our ways and interpret “the facts” just the way we want.
Now, where is the truth though when it comes to gluten? Is a gluten free diet a myth? Is gluten-free diet a myth that needs to be busted?
