I Was On Radio Today

I called and asked if he was planning on offering gluten-free food and said that he should so that Celiacs can frequent his restaurant. I told him the food sounded wonderful and I would love to visit his restaurant if there was something there I could eat.
The DJ's (Beth and Bill in Phoenix) started asking me about Celiac Disease and how happy I was to answer their questions! They asked me how many people have it, what are symptoms, and of course they thought it was only wheat, barley, rye, and spelt...they didn't realize it could be in modified food starch, artificial flavors, etc.
It was only a 2 minute call but hopefully I got a little word out in Phoenix. Beth and Bill are the most popular morning show in the valley, so here's hoping!
