I was snooping around the internet today, and the wheat/GMO/Pharma lobby is all excited that they can try to make the claim that there really aren't as many people who need to eat gluten free, as they don't have a "scientific" basis for doing so, therefore it is a fad diet. I wondered what set them off again, and this must be what they are trying to use as their "proof."

They can't put this genie back into the bottle, no matter how hard they try.
