If you're planning on having friends and family over to celebrate the Fourth of July, you might want to consider having some gluten-free buns for those hamburgers and hot dogs. Maybe a gluten-free pie or cookies to boot. Because more now than ever before, people are experimenting with -- or committing to -- a gluten-free diet, whether or not they've been diagnosed with celiac disease. Going gluten-free may be the only thing that has helped them address certain G.I., autoimmune, or hormonal issues, but some experts are still hyper-critical, skeptical, and certain gluten sensitivity is rare and claiming you suffer from it is a fad.
Now, not only are they saying people aren't to be trusted to eat a well-rounded, nutritious, and gluten-free diet, but researchers say gluten sensitivity isn't triggered by gluten at all.
