gluten free?

Halie | Aug 13, 2008 09:36 AM

Can someone please explain this to me?

I understand that some people are gluten intolerant (what causes this?), but why is it that half the foodie world seems to be touting their edibles as especially gluten-free lately? Do they think that it's healthier to avoid gluten? Or are there just a lot of people that can't have gluten?

Is gluten intolerance something that's always been around, but we've just now come up with a name for it?
