gluten sensitivity

In the United States, approximately 1% of the total population has been diagnosed with celiac disease (CD) - an auto-immune disorder triggered by gluten consumption.
Several explanations are possible for what appears to be an increase in celiac disease and/or gluten sensitivity*.
A small number of Americans perhaps one in fourteen have celiac disease or gluten sensitivity.
Gluten-free diets are all the rage now, as we here at ACSH have discussed, but many of the people choosing this diet don t even know what gluten is.
