  1. Hi guys, I have Celiac Disease as recently diagnosed and I am new to this forum. As I begin my journey I can't help but read news articles which use to praise the Gluten Free Diet now basically put it down as just as fad that will die out in 2 or 3 years and tell people they are crazy to think this will help them at all. Please read these links: http://www.ksl.com/?nid=148&sid=26505996 http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2013/08/26/gluten-free-diet/2704555/ http://www.nbcnews.com/video/nightly-news/52658439 It is many times the main stream press that is putting down the Gluten Free Diet. Even a Tennis star is laughing at it and wants less Gluten Free on the market and hopes it is gone in 3 to 4 years from now: http://blogs.wsj.com/dailyfix/2013/08/26/a-gluten-free-diet-isnt-for-nadal/ Notice it is the main stream press. Now if more people think the Gluten Free diet is bad then that means less products on the store shelves and less stuff for Celiac Sufferers to EAT. Really Celiac.com should confront this issue. I don't know if it is the Monsanto GMO lobbying groups that want to get rid of Gluen Free considering much of the GMO's are in wheat and Barley and Gluten Free is interfering with there profits for the shareholders. It makes me very scared. Even though I am glad the FDA will now regulate Gluten Free there is a little bit of me that wonders why it took so long and will it produce less Gluten Free items on are shelves. The FDA is very slick today and more of an arm of the lobbyist groups then an organization out to help people today. Again I am giving an opinion because now that I have been diagnosed as Celiac I am very scared that with the main stream media teeling people they get FAT on Gluten Free diets, sports tennis stars attacking GLUTEN FREE when not understanding a Celiac diagnosed person needs gluten free to live and the FDA after all this time FINALLY regulating Gluten Free, I am sorry, SOMETHING SMELLS FISHY. I will leave it at that and welcome your comments. Thank you for letting me join this forum.
