Exactly. Since when was cancer a "trendy" disease or having AIDS "trendy"?

In Topic: Domino's offers new gluten-free pizza - Baltimore Sun (blog)

Domino's should be ashamed. They are doing a half-assed job at trying to cater to those who have "minor gluten sensitivities" and in most cases, those with gluten sensitivities do NOT have minor problems. I think it's really catering more to those who are doing the gluten-free diet fad right now. I mean, Kim Kardashian, Milley Cyrus and other celebrities are going gluten-free, so it's now "trendy" for big food chains to do gluten-free. I'm more angry with the NFCA, though. I think they really made a serious error, sticking up for Domino's. They seem to be going against their own cause. Shame on them!

I think he wrote an excellent article. In terms of him being depressed about the gluten-free diet, at least he's being truthful! I'm sure many of us (me, included) feel pretty depressed at times about this diet. Or having Celiac Disease. He's just being honest and talking about his real feelings, although I'm sure many of us can relate.
However, I think that is secondary to the main message that he's trying to convey: celebrities who go on the gluten-free diet because it's the latest "trend" and who use it as a vehicle for weight loss and other outcomes, therefore trivializing it for those of us who are really sick. They are hopping on the gluten-free bandwagon and it's making the whole thing look like a "fad" diet. Just yesterday on the Today Show, Dr. Keri Peterson said that Celiac Disease is "trendy" and "easy to address." Since when is a disease "trendy"?
