Not About Food 39

gluten and gender

Purely anecdotal evidence, but it seems like out of the guests at this hotel, the majority of those who request gluten free food are women.

What's up with that? Does the condition not affect the sexes equally? Are women more sensitive or willing to address health issues while men are in denial and afraid to go to the doctor? Are women more likely to jump on the current in-the-news diet malady bandwagon? Or do we just have a skewed sampling so far and the numbers will even out over time?

Just curious if there is anything to my observation.
