Medical experts have long recognized Celiac disease – a condition in which the body reacts to gluten in a way that damages the intestine. It is especially prevalent in people of Irish descent, and affects approximately 1% of the global population. Furthermore, roughly six times that number of people have a sensitivity to gluten, even though they test negative for Celiac.
Dietician Manuel Villacorta explains that sensitivity to gluten runs the full spectrum, from those who appear to be totally unaffected by it to those who are completely intolerant of it. Most people fall somewhere in between. His advice? He believes that everyone should eat a widely varied diet, in which you get your carbs from many different sources, and not overload on gluten.
He notes that it can be quite difficult to find gluten-free foods, particularly ones that are not highly processed.
