    The Gluten-Free Mall Underwrites 'Gut Reaction' Public Radio Documentary on Celiac Disease

    Celiac.com 03/30/2005 - The original one-stop shop on the Internet for wheat and gluten-free foods has underwritten a new Public Radio program on celiac disease called Gut Reaction. The one-hour program was produced by Richard L. Paul of rlpaulproductions, LLC, many Public Radio stations across the USA have already aired it, including WAMU in Washington, DC, WILL-FM in Champaign/Urbana, IL, WBE in Chicago, IL, WCPN-FM in Cleveland, OH, seventeen stations on the Minnesota Public Radio Network, and it is scheduled to air on many more stations in the future--including next weekend on WFUV in New York City. Several stations who aired it got such an overwhelmingly positive listener response that they have decided to air it multiple times.

    The touching documentary details the difficult real-life stories of several individuals who, after suffering for many years with severe, unexplained health problems, were finally diagnosed with celiac disease. Unfortunately their stories are not unique, and resemble many of those who have been affected by the disease. According to Scott Adams, Founder of The Gluten-Free Mall® and Celiac.com: We underwrote Gut Reaction with the aim of getting the word out about celiac disease to millions of people across the USA, including to those who are unaware that they have it--a full 1-in-133 Americans have celiac disease, but only 1-in-4,700 are ever diagnosed--which is not an acceptable ratio. Hopefully this program will have a positive impact on those who hear it, and will ultimately lead to the diagnosis and treatment of many people. It is also our hope that the program will lead to a better understanding of the disease among those who dont have it, so that it will be easier for those with it to maintain its only acceptable medical treatment--a 100% gluten-free diet for life.

    Mr. Adams emphasizes that: We believe that Public Radio is the perfect vehicle to deliver this important message about celiac disease to people across the USA, because its function is public service and education via quality, educational programming--and Gut Reaction is just that. He continues: You can help us to get Gut Reaction aired in your community by going to Celiac.com and following the steps listed there to contact the programming director at your local Public Radio station. He explained that Public Radio programming is decided on a station by station basis, and each stations program director decides which shows get aired on their station--so each person who contacts them can have a huge influence on which programs get chosen.

  • About Me

    Scott Adams was diagnosed with celiac disease in 1994, and, due to the nearly total lack of information available at that time, was forced to become an expert on the disease in order to recover. In 1995 he launched the site that later became Celiac.com to help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives.  He is co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of the (formerly paper) newsletter Journal of Gluten Sensitivity. In 1998 he founded The Gluten-Free Mall which he sold in 2014. Celiac.com does not sell any products, and is 100% advertiser supported.

    Gut Reaction is a one-hour radio documentary with The Gluten-Free Mall as a major underwriter, produced by Richard Paul for Public Radio with additional funding from the Celiac Sprue Association. Several stations across the USA have already aired it, and some got such a great listener response that they intend to air it again. You can help us spread the word about celiac disease in your community in a very simple way—we urge you to contact the program director of your local Public Radio station to request that they air Gut Reaction in your community.
