So I found this link, titled, What's Up with 'Gluten-Free Food'?" on the homepage of AJC.com today. It leads to a blog entry "Got Gluten?"by a registered dietitian, of all people, who I felt has a real lack of understanding about gluten intolerance and Celiac Disease. I left a (long, okay very, very looong) response to try to help set the record straight. It would be great if other people on the board could take a moment to do the same (you don't have to drone on like I did). ;)

Grrr. Maybe this just caught me on the wrong day but this really rubbed me the wrong way. :angry:

Yes, yours was a great response. I'm glad you pointed out, among other things, that Celiac Disease is an autoimmune condition.

Just for the record, I was not the "Patti" who authored the first response. :D I'm not looking for a pill!

Wow, that woman's blog really offends me. She writes very ill-informed opinions, instead of factual information. Yikes.

One of the posters said that MSG (G - gluten) is also incorrect. MSG may not be very good for anyone, but it has nothing to do with gluten.

JoR, nice letter as well.

Bumping this a bit, in case others didn't get the chance to read the responses to the article.
