***Edited for clarification (due to comments on shared posts of this blog):
What prompted me to write this are the surprisingly heated, mostly one-sided complaint threads about GLUTEN that have begun scratching through the internet walls.
and the comment threads that follow them around seem to be at the heart of it.
That photo has spawned friends of friends making comments about "f*cking idiots" and "r*tards" and "gluten sensitivity myth" and "sheep". For me, all this does is add insult to injury. I WANT THE GOOD PIZZA ALREADY. COULD YOU AT LEAST INSULT ME WHILE EATING THE GOOD PIZZA?
The link is to a questionable article about ONE study containing only 37 research subjects - the evidence of which is not exactly laid out. If I remember correctly, one study also got us the erroneous "vaccines cause autism!" craze and the "the body needs a certain amount of lead in it to survive!" jaw-dropper.
ANYWAY. The point of my post: Whether or not someone medically needs to eat a gluten-free diet is irrelevant to the lives of everyone else (especially those who are personally unaffected by gluten in any way). Kindly shut it and mind your own.
