"In this definitive book on gluten, the authors of Celiac Disease: A Hidden Epidemic cut through the misinformation, false claims, and widespread confusion over gluten to explain the science behind the current gluten-free craze and examine the food-brain-gut triangle to reveal what's really going on in our bodies and our brains.A regimen once followed by those diagnosed with gluten intolerance or celiac disease (a serious autoimmune disorder), gluten-free diets have become a panacea, "prescribed" not only by gastroenterologists, but also by dieticians, nutritionists, naturopaths, trainers, psychiatrists, and neurologists. Believing that eliminating gluten is healthier or that it will help them lose weight, droves of people are adopting a gluten-free lifestyle--and the food industry has responded with shelves of "gluten-free" products.Yet there is little scientific evidence to substantiate this trend, and the latest medical findings have shown that much of what is commonly accepted about gluten is wrong. While the gluten-free diet works for some people--and is a lifesaver for those with celiac disease--going gluten free may injure our health, robbing us of essential nutrients and masking our real problems.Dr. Peter H. R. Green, an internationally renowned expert on celiac disease and director of the Celiac Disease Center at Columbia University, and Rory Jones provide much-needed medical truths about gluten. Gluten Exposed is an inside-out examination of every symptom and condition associated with gluten, how gluten works in the body, what the gluten-free diet cures--and what it doesn't--and which drugs, supplements, and foods often cause problems blamed on gluten alone. It offers clear, welcome guidance and specific disease-based roadmaps that can help anyone achieve a healthier, symptom-free life"--
