Last Thursday, ABC Nightline aired this segment about going gluten free. The emphasis was put on the gluten free diet "fad." Personally, I know that I would not have given up the big G if I hadn't needed to do it for health reasons. It has been surprising to me that there are so many celebs and health food advocates (that don't have celiac or an intolerance) that have decided to cut gluten out of their diet but I do have to admit that the attention that they bring to gluten has definitely resulted in an surge of gluten free products on the grocery shelves.
What do you think? How do you feel about the celeb status gluten free food is getting? Also, do you think it's dangerous for people to follow a gluten free diet if they don't NEED to?
