  1. Avoiding gluten is ridiculous since it only affects people who actually have celiac. Its a marketing scam.

    • Actually there are some people without celiac who are gluten sensitive. Basically after years of suffering chronic health problems with no answers they found removing gluten was the only thing that helped them. I only know what I know because of my niece being diagnosed with celiac years ago so my understanding/study of Celiac and gluten started long before the public started looking at it like a new fad diet. Gluten free is a VERY hard and ridiculously expensive diet to follow so believe me anyone without celiac who has managed to stay gluten free & plans to for life is not doing so for fun or because some marketing scam tells them to. Also in the first few months after my Niece was diagnose I added some Gluten free items to our cupboards. Originally for when my niece visited. I had the following experience long before any marketing scam could have told me about it. I ended up liking the gluten free pancake & waffle mix alot and used it even when my niece was not visiting. So for over a month my weekend pancake or waffle breakfast got replace with gluten free ones. Then one Sunday I felt sick. Like bloated, body aces and major fatigue. I honestly thought I was getting a flu or something. Felt fine all week then it happened again the following Saturday. Went from fine to exhausted and awful stomach pains. Only thing that changed was id run out of the gluten free mix. Five weeks of gluten free pancakes or waffle once every weekend without removing gluten form any other part of my diet and the first two times I went back to gluten for just that one meal my body rebelled that viciously.
