I thought that would get your attention! I woke up to my alarm clock on NPR. They had a program on about the gluten-free diet. Thankfully they did ackowledge Celiac Disease, but I did not like the "flavor" (no pun intended) of it. They discussed the growth of people on gluten-free diets and the increased availablity of gluten-free specialty foods. Then they said that some people claim that they feel a little bloated, so they decide to go on this fad diet. I was so mad! I don't have an official diagnosis of Celiac Disease, but I do know that gluten makes me very ill. When I told the manager of a local health food store what I heard, she said there was a similar article in the Seattle Times. I still need to read it, but I know it is going to really frustrate me. However, she asked me to join in to write to the editor about it. When will people ever get it!? I guess we need to make our voices heard.
