Lately many grocery stores have been stocking their shelves with gluten free alternatives to nearly every kind food. This is a result of the widely spreading gluten free diet. Millions around the world have either completely eliminated gluten from their diet, or have greatly reduced the amount they consume each day.
The reason for this change in diet is actually quite simple. Many people are reducing their gluten consumption because they have celiac disease; when gluten causes inflammation in the small intestine of those with this illness. Most people with this disease go their whole lives without even noticing it because in most cases the inflammation is minor, but in fact 70-80% of the population has some form of gluten sensitivity and most likely that includes you.
There are various studies that claim terminal diseases come from the consumption from gluten but the source of many of these trials is unreliable so the credibility of those claims isn’t strong. Most people react to gluten in a more mild form such as stomach pains, acne, and binge eating.
