This piece was recently aired on the Dallas/Fort Worth NBC news. It talks about the “fad” aspect to the gluten-free diet, brought on by some celebrities, like Elisabeth Hasselbeck, who think everybody should go gluten-free. But it also discusses the importance for the majority of us to be gluten-free, and that the positive aspect of the “fad” is that there are more gluten-free products available.
I think that it is important to realize that this “fad” aspect is there, but we can take it and make the best of it. Perhaps this news story would not have existed had it not been for the fad.
