Article: BBC Magazine: ‘ The Great Gluten-Free Faddy Diet ‘


#​AceFoodNews – July.17: This article by BBC Magazine was emailed by Sarah Gunn. Gluten, the protein found in wheat, makes bread light and springy but it also sends the bodies of 1% of the population haywire.

The BBC’s William Kremer describes how he learned about coeliac disease when his son was diagnosed with the autoimmune condition, but says it is unclear why 70 million Americans say they are trying to cut down on gluten.

The evidence suggests that it has little to do with awareness of coeliac disease and a lot to do with faddy "paleo" diets, which are adopted by people interested in the Stone Age diet.
