<p>Some people have a disease called Celiac Disease that means that when they eat gluten, the small hairs, called cilia, in their intestines which absorb vitamins and minerals, shrivel and drop off.  So eating gluten results in horrible stomach problems and then long term nutrition problems.most people do not have Celiac disease. Other people find their digestion is better when they dont eat gluten.  Or that they have a different health issue that is not as bad when they refrain from gluten.</p>

<p>Most vegans eat gluten.  I've been vegan for 10+ years and I eat it.  My mother has CD but I've been tested and don't have it.</p>
