"From his perspective, Fasano says, goals that remain are discovering a "safety net" treatment, a complement to a gluten-free diet for people who inadvertently are exposed, and to find a way to prevent the disorder."

 

Should we band together and buy the man a cape? Green, the color of our ribbon... right?

I'm slightly confused, what exactly does the new labeling law require??

But on the flip side, "Additionally, gluten-free diets have become "fashionable," ... but also has meant that real medical problems are sometimes treated lightly, Fasano says." <---I love that statement! So true! I don't know how many times in 2 months I have had people say something to me along the lines of "I don't eat much gluten either" like they think I'm on the "fashionable diet"....ummmm....a diet is temporary and by choice, what I'm on is called a "medical neccisity lifestyle to stay healthy".

When I met with my nutritionist last week we were talking about the cavalier attitudes, especially in restaurants, about people that need to be gluten-free.  When I ate at Olive Garden the other day, I told the waitress I needed gluten-free and she said "no croutons, right"...which was good.  The salad arrived with obvious crouton crumbs.  I still wasn't "officially" gluten-free so I didn't say anything, but I won't eat there any more because of that.  I told my nutritionist I'm just going to tell people I have a gluten allergy because allergies people "get", not so much Celiacs and what it does.  She said she also tells people to think of Celiacs as a "peanut allergy" for your intestines. While you don't go into anaphylaxic shock from eating gluten, your intestines do and you need to treat your food like that.  I've explained that to two people so far and it's a bit of a light bulb moment for them when they hear that.

 

I also fear that with the new labeling requirements that companies will not put on the gluten-free label, even if it is, to prevent lawsuits....

This is already the case, and has been for years. The new law may help, because now there is a legal definition of "gluten-free," whereas in the past, it meant whatever the plaintiff's lawyer could convince a jury it meant.
