Gluten Free... Overblown, by a lot?

SocksManly | Jan 4, 2013 04:04 PM

Reading the Wikipedia article on Gluten, it says about 0.5 to 1% of people are adversely affected by gluten.

But around here in Toronto I see whole sections devoted to gluten free items, all way more expensive than normal items, and clearly catering to a larger market than 1%.

So what gives? Is it just trendy to pretend to be medically affected by this?

I don't get it.
