A gluten-free diet is a healthy one recommended for anyone. Since up to 30% of the u.s. is now gluten intolerant (and many have gastric distress, but don't know this is the cause), it is worth anyone taking a serious look at it. It involves replacing wheat/rye/barley products with other grains.

If there is a concern, it is that a person on a g-f diet needs to increase their fiber from other sources because they are no longer eating some of the grains that are primary in the u.s. diet.

Currently, it is hypothesized that gluten intolerance is one of the triggers for gall bladder issues, some thyroid problems, and some people's diabetes. Definitely worth exploring because it reduces the inflammation in our digestive systems and allows our intestines to better digest and use nutrients that we could not otherwise process.

I'm with Jayabee on this one…Dr. Oz was way off this time around.

I really don't have a lot of respect for Oz. Some of the things he says need to be taken with not a grain but a whole boatload of salt. Always check out what his recommendations are before you follow them.
