Gluten Free? Not so much

I don't know a lot about gluten free diets, but apparently for all but a small percentage of humans, they're completely useless.
If you have Celiac, this obviously doesn't apply to you. Don't eat gluten. But if you don't have Celiac—and that's 99% of the human population, mind you—there's no reason to be gluten free. You're wasting your time. Even the scientist who started this gluten free craze thinks it's useless to be gluten free. Seriously. People, the father of gluten free think it's bullshit.  Link
Bottom line, for most people, their reaction to gluten is the nocebo effect. It's all in their minds.

Yeah, that's not too surprising, is it?

I imagine this is one of those things where some people had an actual medical condition requiring a gluten free diet and then someone heard about it and thought it was a good idea without really understanding it.
