Celiac Disease & Gluten Intolerance expert, Dr. Cynthia Rudert joins a panel of 3 other leading celiac experts in a Q & A in the article, "Gluten Sensitivity" by Christine Boyd, in Living Without's Gluten Free & More magazine's Dec / January 2015 issue! More and more people today say they're sensitive to gluten. What's going on? Does gluten sensitivity really exist? Read an excerpt below...
Dr. Rudert Answers (excerpt from "Gluten Sensitivity", by Christine Boyd):
"We used to eat much less gluten. In the 1950's, breads and pastas were near the top (the smallest part) of the food pyramid. Now they're at the bottom. And today, what is different - it's hybridized so the dough has a higher gluten content and is stickier. Studies show celiac disease is on the rise and that gluten sensitivity may be far more common. I never argue with someone who says they feel better off gluten."
