    This article is excellent, it helped to be more aware of what foods gluten is in. There so many foods that contain gluten that I didn't know about.

    This is so helpful to keep on hand - I just wish there was an easier way to know about the items that may or may not contain gluten - which the Scott Adams site can't do nothing about - it's the manufacture - take for instance albacore tuna has vegetable oil; Well I had to contact bumble bee, Starkist... to find out if the veggie oil was gluten-free - which by the way is gluten-free!- Scott Adams thanks for this great site laa : )

    I, too, am self-diagnosed. I had joint pain since I was a child. Now I no longer have any achy joints. My immune system is also a lot stronger, too. Thanks for your specific, up-to-date info.

    Thank-You! I have a son that I self-diagnosed when he was 2. He has been healthy since changing his diet...He is now 6. Information about celiac disease, at the time we diagnosed him, was sketchy at best, as to what we needed to avoid eating. This list is so helpful and clear! Thanks again!
