The Truth About Gluten Free

From Radio Health Journal, aired on 6/26/2016:

Going gluten-free is very popular, but a new study finds that if you don't have celiac disease, there's no point in it.  In fact, it may even hurt you.  The 25-year study in the journal BMJ (British Medical Journal) shows that people who eat the lowest levels of gluten have a 15% higher risk of heart disease.  Researchers say the results aren't necessarily cause-and-effect, but when people restrict heart-healthy whole grains to reduce gluten exposure, they often end up eating more refined grains.

The above information comes from Dr. Peter Green, Professor of Medicine and Director, Celiac Disease Center, Columbia University, and author, Gluten Exposed: The Science Behind the Hype and How to Navigate to a Healthy, Symptom-Free Life
