Even if you're not a Celiac, you're better off staying away from processed foods with gluten. The way wheat and other grains are processed are not really healthy for anyone and over time, can cause health issues. Unfortunately, even healthy fruits and vegetables have been genetically manipulated to create a more disease resistant product. The genetically manipulated organisms act like a pesticide and we the public, are ingesting these harmful products. There are but a few countries left that refuse to let Monsanto take over their food industries, but for how long that will be, remains to be seen. You may not be aware of it, but over time, the inflammation that over processed food and genetically manipulated food can cause over time, can cause a variety of health issues. Diabetes, Cancer, heart disease, digestive problems, sluggishness and fatigue, irritability, depression, allergies, etc., can all be associated with the modern diet. You don't have to eliminate all gluten if you're not a Celiac, but it would be wise to cut back significantly. Remember, doctors can't make money if you're not sick. Don't make it easier for them. I'm not here to bash doctors, but being healthy starts with you and you have to be constantly aware of what's going on in the health world. Also keep in mind that not everything you read is necessarily 100% correct or true. Weight both sides - research and learn as much as you possibly can.
