Is Gluten Bad For Everyone?

Recommended Posts

This is totally anecdotal. I talked to someone the other day who travels to Europe frequently. He is not celiac. He cannot eat wheat bread in the US but he can eat the wheat bread in Europe. He is convinced that it has something to do with the GMO changes to US wheat that are not allowed in Europe.

Could be reactions to preservatives or dough conditioners used in American bread, or a reaction to GMO wheat which isn't allowed in Europe.
