Goodbye to gluten?
Celiac disease is a disorder that causes people's immune systems to react negatively to gluten. While those who have the condition must follow a strict gluten-free diet, others have gone gluten-free to shed pounds. Although some think there are health benefits to this, there are actually health hazards.
A gluten-free diet is generally adopted by people with wheat allergies or celiac disease, but recently there has been a growing interest in gluten-free diets for people simply interested in changing their eating habits and/or losing weight.
