Anyone Catch Rock Center Last Night?

It was in the second half hour. I am sure it is available on NBC.com if you want to watch it. It was interesting and made me mad all at the same time. They interviewied this random couple in a MLB baseball park who were waiting in line for the gluten-free food. They asked why they were eating that and the girl said because it is healthier. When asked what Gluten was, they both kind of just looked at the camera, dumbfounded.
They also covered how the availability of gluten-free foods is a major food trend right now that they expect to die down within the next 2 years and will be replaced with a new fad diet.
It makes me so mad that people think this is a fad diet. It is not. My hair was falling out, I was depressed, exhausted, my joints were killing me, and now I need to check the labels on every single thing that I eat for the rest of my life... fad diet, my as$!

Who when doing a story on gluten free foods rolls her eyes and called celiac disease a trendy disease.
This does piss me off as well when it is called a fad diet.
