One in 133 Americans suffer from Celiac Disease. That is one percent of the entire population. Scientists have varying suggestions for the rise in gluten sensitivity over the past 50 years, including the altering of grain crops for drought resistance. Others point to the high usage of antibiotics and the rise of gut flora or dysbiosis. And our much cleaner environment may have weakened our immune systems as our antibodies had to do less work to fight off disease. Whatever the definitive reason, gluten free diets have become much more commonplace. What isn’t always discussed is the need to be wary of vitamin and nutrient deficiency that a gluten free diet may bring on.
