In this essential book on gluten, Dr. Peter H. R. Green,
internationally renowned expert on celiac disease and director of
the Celiac Disease Center at Columbia University, and acclaimed
medical writer Rory Jones reveal the real scientific story behind
the current gluten-free craze, identifying what is true and what is
just pseudoscience. In recent years, gluten has become a villain,
getting blamed for anything and everything from heart disease and
dementia to neuralgia and fatigue. Droves of people are adopting a
gluten-free lifestyle, believing it's healthier or that it will
help them lose weight and increase their energy. The diet, a
regimen once followed only by those diagnosed with celiac disease
(a serious autoimmune disorder caused by gluten), has become a
cure-all, "prescribed" not only by gastroenterologists but also by
dietitians, nutritionists, naturopaths, trainers, psychiatrists,
and neurologists, as well as by celebrities and media
personalities. Yet as Gluten Exposed reveals, there is little
scientific evidence to justify this trend. The latest medical
findings have shown that the majority of the information available
about the effects of gluten on the body is only partly correct, or
almost wholly incorrect. Green and Jones, authors of Celiac
Disease: A Hidden Epidemic, cut through the misinformation, false
claims, and widespread confusion over gluten. They examine the
connections between the gut, brain, and what you ingest (not just
gluten, but other food and drugs) to reveal what's really going on
in your body and your brain. They also bring to light the potential
dangers of going gluten-free. While the diet is a lifesaver for
those with celiac disease, for others it may injure health, rob the
body of essential nutrients, and mask real problems. In fact, one
of the biggest risks of going on a gluten-free diet without
properly testing for what is causing your symptoms is postponing or
missing a potentially serious diagnosis. Gluten Exposed provides an
in-depth examination of every symptom and condition associated with
gluten, how gluten works in the body, what a gluten-free diet
cures-and what it doesn't-and which drugs, supplements, and foods
can cause problems often blamed on gluten alone. It offers clear,
welcome guidance and a practical road map that can help anyone
achieve a healthier, symptom-free life.
