How Gluten Benefits Us

The current gluten-free diet craze is unhealthy for those who do not need it. Traditionally, our kind of high-carbohydrate eating has been the diet of people throughout recordable human history, and a large share of these civilisations, ancient and modern, have relied on generous amounts of wheat, barley, and/or rye for survival.

Exaggerating the benefits of a wheat-free diet has, consequently, seen an avalanche of so many books promoting a low-carb movement, typified by the popular Paleo and Atkins diets. These books recommend people eat unlimited amounts of eggs, full-fat cheese, other dairy products, meat, fish, chicken, and vegetable (olive) oils; and reduce or eliminate favorite (even non-gluten) “comfort foods,” like corn, rice, oats, quinoa, millet, buckwheat, potatoes, and beans. Gluten has been vilified by these people. They have also created mass confusion regarding gluten. People of the world are trying to “fix” their health problems by eating gluten-free.
