Dude. Seriously? We have a verifiable DISEASE. Quit trivializing what we go through. It made me so agitated.

I so agree with you. Recently in our local paper they had all about the gluten free diet but a very small blurb about Celiac, it irritates the heck out of me, all those who follow the diet for the "new trend in diets" dont have the health concerns that we have, no worries of CC and can still walk into Pizza Hut anytime they want, just had to rant about that. :unsure:

Did it not say anything about Celiac or gluten intolerance? I think someone needs to enlighten that magazine. If the person that wrote the article had just one of the symptoms it can cause, she would have a different opinion.

It was a little box inside an article called "BIG LIES ABOUT FOOD ALLERGIES". Ugh.

The magazines are full of it. If the fad diet brings us more safe products that are dedicated gluten-free, AWESOME. Otherwise, I'm sure the fad will pass and we'll be left with our trusted stand-by products.

Don't forget that people love a headline, and the headlines are what sell magazines. It's all BS. Let it roll off your back like a bad dream.

Good point. My husband said the same thing. And he added "Hey! Maybe you'll finally be able to get some gluten-free beer around here!" LOL

I read this also. The article mentions celiac in the last paragraph. It talks about wheat allergy and why some people "think" they need to be gluten-free. Then it was like..BTW some people have Celiac. At least that is what I took from the article. :(

'Zactly. "What's behind the wheat-free trend?" Well, probably the fact that it makes so many of us puke and gives us cancer and vitamin D deficiency and additional autoimmune stuff and basically makes our life hell.

I mean if they really wanna know. ;)

I wish there were some sort of rule banning people who do not suffer from the effects of gluten being able to write these articles. I just feel like until you've been here it's impossible to imagine. I can't read them. They are there to sell magazines. Probably a 25 year old copywriter with a lame story idea up against a deadline. (Well, idea was handled in a lame manner)

Just wanted to add that my mom dropped by this article last weekend. She found it in a magazine at the hair salon. It *really* irks me. There was a whole "myths about allergies" in there too that trivialized food intolerances just because they weren't anaphalactic or something.

It particularly irks me that my mom gave me the annoying article too! Yay for mainstream media. Not!

Come on now. Do you really think big Wheat is going down without a fight? Nope. They are going to make us out to be insane so the truth that gluten is at the root cause of the three leading causes of death in this country doesn't get out.

They are going to keep printing this vacuous nonsense to create just enough doubt so that people happily go on eating their poison.

That is why it is up to every one of us to help people with what we know. I've personally changed 7 lives in the last few months just by spreading the word and being an example of how awesome getting off this crap is.

Seven people who were slowly suffering and dying and aren't anymore. Seven kinds of awesome. B)

A co-worker gave me the same article.

I think some people are doing the fad gluten free diet because they see people like me who drop weight after going gluten free and then they think it's an easy way to lose weight. A different co-worker is doing just that. She tells me what she ate every once in awhile, she's not really gluten free but she thinks it's good enough for the diet. :( It makes me cringe.

Fad diets sell magazines, facts don't. (at least not for the most part) I used to be annoyed by articles and news clips on migraines. Once I saw a special report on migraines and the only "sufferer" they interviewed complained of one a year! Before going gluten free I was enduring as many as 18 days a month with migraine. Come to think of it I still am annoyed.
