Deja Vu-My Gluten-Free Scam Prediction Coming True
Many of the same people touting the ‘gluten-free’ trend would soon be bashing it.
Back in March of 2012, I wrote an article titled “The Gluten-Free Scam”. It got a lot of publicity, and also got some expected backlash. Some people said that my prediction was wrong-and that the whole “gluten-free” trend was here to stay. Others, despite being contradicted by authorative studies, said that ‘gluten-free’ never had much merit in the first place.
The reality, however, still remains: gluten is a serious problem.
And it doesn’t most commonly show up in the way most people think in the form of a digestive problem. It typically shows up in the form of hyperactivity disorder and ADHD.
Want to know of how problematic it really is? Check out what expert Nora Gedgaudas CNS, CNT so eloquently has to say about it in her book, Primal Body Primal Mind. Gluten is in fact, a nasty substance.
That said, though, my prediction regarding gluten-free scam was this:
The gluten-free trend was being hijacked by large companies wishing to capitalize on a trend that was increasingly becoming part of our social conciousness. And while the trend was being hijacked, it would also develop a substantial backlash-largely by people who never truly understood the concept of what gluten-free really was.
The prediction related to the junk that’s being touted as ‘gluten-free’. Junk that may well be void of gluten, yet packed with chemicals, sugar, and dangerous dyes instead.
Want to know some truly healthy food that’s gluten-free? Eat some vegetables. Have some nuts. Eat a small amount of fruit, eat some meat. They’re all real food, free of dyes, and free of the dangerous protein, gluten.
