I saw a recent study, they showed that with a double blind control, people who thought they were gluten intolerant were unable to demonstrate so scientifically. There are some dietary problems (more today than in the past), but gluten isn't the culprit for people who have problems with food except in a few extremely rare cases.Posted by Christopher Taylor at March 18, 2015 11:31 AM
This guy is a master: undisputed world heavyweight champion of dead pan. Thanks for posting, Gerard. This made my day.

Shame on this new group of ill-bred bigots, the Gluten Intolerants!
Next will come the Glutton Intolerants, that's us when the gluttons don't pass the food tray to us.
It's easy to get fed up with these sorts; not so easy to get fed down trying to swallow unplucked duck or goose.
So evil am I, that I ADD high gluten flour to the bread I make for my family.
Umm, gluten...Posted by Katherine at March 18, 2015 2:43 PM
I hear the request all the time in the bakery...gluten-free cake? Sugar-free and gluten-free cookies? Pastries? I smile and say, yes! It is called, Don't eat anything.Posted by Jewel at March 19, 2015 3:00 AM
And adding to the joke, a little ad at the bottom of the screen for - you guessed it! - gluten-free stuff!Posted by Fausta at March 19, 2015 7:43 AM
Saying that gluten is the problem is a sort of false argument. The whole wheat seed is the problem. Gluten is just one factor. In recent decades wheat has been hybridized to the point that its a monstrosity and this overly hybridized stuff was never tested on even animals. Many people suffer from eating it. Look it up, there is much information on the subject.Posted by pbird at March 19, 2015 8:30 AM
There is nothing wrong in cutting back on grains and loading up on more veggies (for obvious reasons I am less enthusiastic for paelo dieters love of rib eyes). But people blame everything on "gluten" without understanding what it even is:Posted by EBL at March 28, 2015 2:52 PM
