KQED's 'Forum' Radio Show Highlights Celiac Disease and Gluten Intolerance

Celiac.com 12/17/2012 - On Friday, December 7th, 2012, KQED public radio hosted an hour-long program on celiac disease and gluten-sensitivity called: Going Gluten-free.

KQED has the largest listener audience of any public radio station in the nation, so this presents a welcome opportunity to spread awareness of celiac disease, gluten-intolerance, and gluten-free issues to a wide audience.

KQED's tagline for the show was: If you're gluten-free, going to the grocery store used to mean spending hours reading labels to avoid anything with wheat, barley or other grains. But with the rising number of people with celiac disease and gluten intolerance, more stores and restaurants are offering gluten-free foods. We'll discuss the rise of gluten-free diets.

The guests for the one-hour program were:

  • Dr. Neilsen Fernandez-Becker, associate director of the Celiac Management Clinic at the Stanford School of Medicine
  • Jefferson Adams, writer at Celiac.com
  • Melinda Dennis, dietician and nutrition coordinator with the Celiac Center at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, sufferer from celiac disease, and co-author of "Real Life with Celiac Disease: Troubleshooting and Thriving Gluten-Free"
  • Sadie Scheffer, owner and founder of BreadSRSLY.com, which delivers gluten-free breads around San Francisco.

The place I worked at had a sort-of dishwasher for the glassware - it was basically a 2 minute bleach/steam sprin...

I walk and do yoga. I started off slow, but was able to increase it as I felt better. They are still my 2 favorite ways to exercise.

These days there are tasty equivalents for most foods. So you're just changing brands. Here's my list of gluten free equivalents to get you started: If you're currently on a meat, potato, and veggies diet then relax because this is gonna be easy. If not you might want to switch to a meat, ve...
