Newsweek Web Exclusive: "A New Diet Villain"

Newsweek has posted a "gluten-free trend" online story, "A New Diet Villain" (December 3, 2008).

Unlike this week's WCBS-TV story, Karen Springen's article serves up a substantial helping of information on a gluten-free diet as the legitimate treatment for celiac disease, but the "trend" slant still downplays that angle along with the very important message that most people with celiac disease still need to be diagnosed.

Is gluten really a new diet villain, as the Newsweek headline claims? The New York Times ran the story "Jury is Still Out on Gluten, the Latest Dietary Villain" on May 8, 2007.

New villain or old, those of us who feel miraculously better without it know what we're doing for ourselves!
