Look at the blog source of this article, (political) the other blogs they link to, and it's an election year. Notice how the FDA made some sounds about "studying" a gluten free labeling standard for the United States last year,( which they've been doing for years <_< as the rest of the world leaves us behind ), took some comments, took some more comments, had the FDA guy (formerly from Monsanto) show up at the food- fest in DC, and that was about the end of that.

So now the food manufacturing industry and the GMO industry is going to do pushback against the labeling standards, by citing this Italian speculation study over and over again, which has some fairly inflammatory language in the write ups, from the perspective of the actual celiacs and gluten intolerants.

The LAST THING this current administration would want the general population to realize is the extent of celiac disease and gluten intolerance in the general population, which would then make their continued inability to come up with a better, gluten free labeling standard seem even more outrageous. It is much easier to start spreading these "Gluten intolerance - It's all a form of social hysteria" stories over the social media.

Pharmaceutical manufacturers can not profit from these auto immune disease sufferers merely changing their die,t and successfully bringing their disease under control, either. But pharma manufacturers also aren't currently required to label for gluten, and likely would rather not.
