    Recently I took a last minute, end of Summer road trip with my family and on one of our pit stops I was delighted to discover the often rumored, highly elusive and possibly "Holy Grail" of gluten-free food: Subway's gluten-free sub rolls!

    Should restaurants be required to provide gluten-free food at the same prices it charges for regular gluten-containing items?

A federal judge has now "tentatively" dismissed that lawsuit.

    For anyone with celiac disease, following a lifelong gluten-free diet has been shown to relieve symptoms, and in celiac patients it has been shown to normalize serologic markers of celiac disease, and to restore damaged intestinal villi. Not following a gluten-free diet, on the other hand, can result in serious complications associated with malabsorption.

    The author of a recent book on gluten and health is saying that Tom Brokaw's cancer may be linked to adverse gluten reactions. Really?

    Many people who are concerned that they may have celiac disease are not sure where to begin. Many people simply stop eating gluten and call it a day, choosing to avoid what can be a long, drawn-out process of getting an official diagnosis.
