He encourages people to go see their diet and start a gluten free diet before getting any other testing done O.o

Funny how they claim that gluten is "increasingly" appearing in beer and cookies...like it wasn't there before.
"Dr Barnard guessed that up to 10% of the population, or 20 million adults, could be Gluten Sensitive or have Celiac Disease, most without even knowing they’re at risk. Unfortunately, there is no effective blood or genetic test so far."
Not really surprising from a doctor who "guesses"!

The Dr. Oz show had a guest today that was demonstrating some gluten free recipes, which included oats in two out of three of the dishes, and no mention was made that the oats must be certified gluten free.
And the other dish was full of powdered sugar and chocolate chips...in the same episode where he accuses gluten-free convenience foods as being loaded with sugar and empty calories. So much for "losing weight with gluten free if you do it the right way".

Any MD will tell you this.
He is merely a marketing puppet for HUGE corporations. His network is there for the ratings and he is there for the exorbitant amounts of $.

I saw this show and felt that the main problem with his approach to it was that he did not have the time to go more into gluten free diets in detail. Shows like this are under great time constraints.
Id bet money they will get enough feedback on this that they will need to do a fallow up to it.
An episode with Elisabeth Hasselbeck would be a good call....... and one or two of these folks:
