Hilarious Article by Gluten Dude About Gluten Free Society

In 1994 I was diagnosed with celiac disease, which led me to create Celiac.com in 1995. I created this site for a single purpose: To help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives. Celiac.com was the first site on the Internet dedicated solely to celiac disease, and since then it has become an invaluable resource to people worldwide who seek information about celiac disease and the gluten-free diet.
In 1998 I created The Gluten-Free Mall, Your Special Diet Superstore! which was also another Internet first—it was the first gluten-free food site to offer a shopping cart-style interface, and the ability for people to order gluten-free products manufactured by many different companies at a single Web site.
I am also co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of Journal of Gluten Sensitivity.
This post is outstanding. I've been thinking much the same thing for months now, but was too lazy to actually write something about it. Obviously there is no need to now, as Gluten Dude says it all...perfectly.
On one hand I am reluctant to further publicize the "Society" site in any way. After more thought, however, I realized that getting the word out may help some poor celiac not waste their money, and may prevent them from going on an unnecessarily restrictive diet.
As always, Celiac.com welcomes your comments (see below).
