    Caught on in the spring as a possible weight loss diet, with coverage in several newsweeklies and elsewhere. Just a fad, will die out when people get tired of paying more and seeing no results.

    Indeed, it's a fad just like organic food. Wait, that's not a fad anymore...

    Let me just put it like this: there are far more nutritious foods with gluten than without by an enormous factor. Only those with celiac disease, wheat allergies or rather rare skin conditions need concern themselves with gluten. You would know if you have any of these, so this fad, unlike organic food, is simply ridiculous.

    I'm not sure that Coco Pebbles actually count as food, so that's not much of a loss.:twisted:

    Can you believe it? Turning obvious things into commercial positive point.
    It's the power of marketing!

    Hmmm... I was expecting more of a Seinfeld monologue Mr Summers. Is this a Gluten free thread?
