NY Times Article on Celiac Disease and Gluten-Sensitivity

A New York times article was just released and featured Dr. Stefano Guadalini, medical director of the University of Chicago's Celiac Disease Center, and discuss a little bit about the difference between Celiac Disease and gluten-sensitivity, the prevalence of the two illnesses, the gluten-free diet and what we do know about gluten-sensitivity.

Here is a quote:

"There are also people who are allergic to wheat (not necessarily gluten), but until recently, most experts had thought that Celiac and wheat allergy were the only problems caused by eating the grain."

I'm glad that there is more press being garnered by both illnesses and their effects. Hopefully, it will help educate more people. Click the link for the rest of the article:
