"On this issue, the jury is still out. Some people who don’t have celiac disease may be sensitive to gluten, and may feel better on a gluten-free diet, but the science remains to be seen. Regardless, there’s little data to support the belief."
Health myth? It's only a myth because there is not enough data to support it, is that it? Maybe when the "jury" gives us permission, then we can stop calling it a myth?
While you are waiting for the data, many people are finding relief by going gluten free. Again, why is there this need to have everything cleared by a research team before going forward? If you want to know if going gluten free will be beneficial, then TRY IT OUT. No need to wait for someone to conduct a study and wait around for years until the results are out!
In some cases of gluten sensitivity, there are no positive test results, yet people still feel better going off of gluten. I guess if the tests don't show sensitivity, then there is no sensitivity? Wrong.
Calling that a myth is just irritating.
