Late night television host Jimmy Kimmel recently sent a camera crew out to ask people following a gluten-free diet if they actually knew what gluten was.
Celiac.com 05/13/2014 - Overall, increased awareness of celiac disease and gluten intolerance has been a good thing, right?
Generally, more people are being diagnosed, and gluten-free food options are more numerous and more widely available than ever before.
However, all this awareness has succeeded in drawing a number of people into voluntary gluten-free dieting, often with mixed results.
Late night television host Jimmy Kimmel recently sent a camera crew out to a local exercise spot to ask people if they were following a gluten-free diet, and to find out if they actually knew what gluten was.
What he found was a bunch of supposedly gluten-free dieters, who were almost totally clueless about gluten, giving answers that would make most celiac patients cringe. He also got a few good laughs.
