Here's the article I mentioned in Mermaid's Mom's post.  

http://journal.frontiersin.org/article/10.3389/fnhum.2016.00130/full

It explains the way gluten gets in our brains and how we become ill.

 

I enjoyed the article and I think there's a lot in it, thanks for sharing it :)

However although presented as such, it's more speculative than a traditional peer reviewed paper and there are some criticisms of the approach to citations etc which I think have some validity so in the interests of balance:

Thanks for the input.  Interesting commentaries.  

The authors of the article rebute the criticisms here:

Thanks, I'd looked for a response and hadn't seen that. It's good to see the authors responding and  addressing the issues raised. I did think the bible quote attack was a cheap shot and they rebutted it as such :) 

As you can guess I'm on their side in this debate but try to preserve a sceptical view to counter the biases my own experience has probably left me with... It also helps to be abreast of the criticisms when sharing this to the wider world, which I guess is how public opinion will eventually be shifted.

A healthy dose of scepticism is essential on the web. But I thought the research was valid.  Yes, I agree with the biblical quote being a cheap shot. People often criticise and ridicule novel concepts that they don't want to believe...or have not experienced themselves.  Thanks for your input!
