The Bottom Line

An authoritative look at the latest research into celiac disease and gluten intolerance dispels myths and provides clear guidance and tips for following a gluten-free diet.

I. Introduction

Gluten gets a bad rap. Wheat, in particular, is demonized by some as the source of all evil when it comes to our health. Right now, you can read umpteen anecdotal stories in online health blogs about the miraculous benefits of going gluten free.

What gives? Why is wheat, a dietary staple of countless cultures for centuries, suddenly being stricken from people’s diets? Why does the grocery store suddenly have shelves full of gluten-free products?

It turns out there’s a good reason that wheat and other gluten-containing foods have become a hot topic — and you can thank Dr. Alessio Fasano, author of Gluten Freedom, and his colleagues at the Center for Celiac Disease Research at the University of Maryland School of Medicine. They conducted a five-year epidemiological study of celiac disease that changed the way we understand celiac disease and other illnesses related to gluten consumption.
