Michael Pollan Says Going Gluten Free Is More Fad Than Medical Necessity

Michael Pollan:

“Gluten, I think it’s a bit of a social contagion. I think that the number of people who are genuinely gluten-sensitive cannot be growing as fast as the market niche is growing.”

“There are a lot of people who hear from their friends, ‘I got off gluten and I sleep better, and the sex is better, and I’m happier,’ and then they try it and then they feel better, too. It’s the power of suggestion.”

I also like what he says about the Paleo diet, how we’ve evolved since then to digest starches and dairy, how we are not the same. I agree. You can’t pluck something out of context, put it in another context, and expect it to act the same.
