Exciting news! Gluten free eating is in the news. It is just a short blurb, but there is a much longer report out there covering the material from the Department of Health and Human Services. This is exciting. The first steps towards reliable GF labeling on foods. Yay!
Actually, the word really seems to be getting out. I was at a workshop this past Saturday. I was picking over the snacks trying to find something safe. It struck up a conversation about dietary issues and being gluten free. One of the women asked "Oh! Do you have Celiac?" Whoa! She knew three people who had just been diagnosed. Two other women there each knew someone who has it. We are many, apparently. (Well, we already knew that. Now the rest of the world is starting to figure it out!)
