Gluten awareness growing

Gluten awareness / gluten consciousness

More and more people are waking up to the knowledge that gluten is potentially harful for us all.
More than 1-in-100 have celiac disease.
More than 1-in-10 react to gluten.

Have another look at this paper: http://www.biomedcentral.com/content/pdf/1741-7015-10-13.pdf.  It is a landmark consensus paper, by 15 international gluten medical experts, that now confirms that gluten causes many common illnesses. 

They say, and I quote: "All individuals, even those with a low degree of risk, are therefore susceptible to some form of gluten reaction during their life span."
Yes, we should all be aware of gluten.  
Our group is on the way to creating a gluten-free planet.  In another 10 years, over 30% of the population with be living a GF life   We have all travelled our own gluten-free path, and the company of others makes it easier.

  1. I am fascinated by the various claims about the prevalence of non-celiac "gluten-sensitivity" on the internet, but have been frustrated that I have been unable to find a single published study. Please would you share where you got the 1 in 10 number from? Thanks, Brian.
