The article quotes a few prominent people in celiac world including Dr. Peter Green:
"Celiac disease is finally getting more attention, but that has not trickled down to an increased rate of diagnosis," said Dr. Peter Green, director of the Celiac Disease Center at Columbia University and author of "Celiac Disease: A Hidden Epidemic" (Harper Collins, February 2006).
