    Celiac.com 12/16/2016 - Gluten-free news is everywhere, but so is fake news. Thanks to someone's sense of humor, the two collided recently, when signs recently appeared inside San Francisco buses, declaring:

    THIS IS A GLUTEN-FREE BUS.

    Riders of San Francisco's buses may have seen these and other tongue-in-cheek ads, including signs that read:

    CHEESEBURGERS AND LIQUOR UPON REQUEST

    No, you cannot actually get cheeseburgers or liquor on the bus, or any MUNI bus in San Francisco. Nor is the bus in any way gluten-free.

    The signs sport the wry Twitter hashtag #MUNIFACTS

    Sometimes fake news, and satire sites make it easy, and sometimes they make it harder to discern the truth of the claim.

    These pranksters seem to be having a good time doing the latter, as witnessed by another sign that read:

    FARES MAY BE PAID BY CASH, CLIPPER, OR MAGIC BEANS.

    So, if you're lucky enough to see one of these, be sure to smile, because that seems to be the culprit's main intent.

    Celiac.com 02/14/2014 - A 43-year-old UK mother of two, who turned up at a hospital complaining of severe stomach cramps, first thought she was suffering a case of "acute wheat intolerance," until doctors told her that she was in fact pregnant and in labor. The woman, Teresa Howard, had no idea that she was expecting the son she delivered just hours later.
    Because her sister is gluten-intolerant, and not realizing she was pregnant, the woman attributed what were clearly pregnancy-related stomach problems to adverse gluten reactions. Howard experienced standard symptoms with both of her prior pregnancies, and so thought she knew the standard things to...

    Celiac.com 03/28/2014 - Great news for some celiac and gluten-intolerant folks in Colorado! Legal marijuana sales began in Colorado on Jan. 1, 2014, and new shop owners have been surprised to find a strong the market for marijuana edibles. More and more, makers of these edibles are including gluten-free selections.
    In some ways, it seems both natural and inevitable that the rising retail market for gluten-free good and the rising retail market for edible cannabis products should overlap.
    That is what is happening now in Colorado. As marijuana retailers such to meet the demand for weed, they are also rushing to meet the demand for edible cannabis...

    Celiac.com 06/17/2014 - Ever notice how much our social lives are based around food? Or how much food is all around us? I took my son to a local children’s exhibit today with shops and about twenty different restaurants, cafes and bakeries we had to walk by. Do I feel bad always having to say no? Of course I do. What mom wouldn’t? There may have been some safe choices but I try to do my research ahead of time when I can call the places to see what their cross contamination procedures are.
    We don’t ever get a day off from food allergies. It is constant. I think one of the best things you can do on a gluten free diet is to inform others,actively campa...

    Celiac.com 04/23/2015 - Not only did a gluten-free diet and lifestyle changes NOT cure Australian "wellness" blogger Belle Gibson of terminal brain cancer, but the 23-year-old is admitting that she never actually had cancer in the first place.
    Gibson published a book and even created a popular cellphone app, "The Whole Pantry," and in the process made at least $300,000 from people who also hoped to cure cancer or other ailments by changing their diet. She had promised to donate a portion of those proceeds to cancer charity, but apparently kept all the money, which proved to be the catalyst for her subsequent downfall.
    Deeper scrutiny and investigation...
