A Roundup of Gluten-Related Stories

by Melissa Diane Smith

It has been close to two-and-a-half years since I began Nutrition News & Notes. Many of you come to this site looking for gluten-related information, but sometimes miss earlier posts I have written about gluten sensitivity, celiac disease or the gluten-free diet. I find it pays to do a little review of the information every so often. So, here is a roundup of the gluten-related stories you might have missed. Click on the links below to read the full stories.


Check Out My New Author Interview at GF Cooking section of About.com

My virtual book tour for my new book Gluten Free Throughout the Year continues. This month I did an author interview at About.com and had a nice conversation with Teri Gruss, the writer of the Gluten-Free Cooking section of that site. She asked very insightful questions I’m not often asked and we covered information that people who eat gluten free rarely hear about. You can check out the interview at these links:

An Independence Day Message: Fight for The Right for Real Food

by Melissa Diane Smith

(Opinion) When our founding fathers wrote the Declaration of Independence in 1776 covering our rights to Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness, I’m sure they could not foresee that the food that sustains us and is essential for those rights would be changed so drastically between then and now by greedy corporations focused on profit. I doubt they could have ever conceived of the idea that the real food they ate for nourishment would be manipulated in such horrendous, harmful, underhanded ways without the people’s knowledge that it puts our very right to Life, Health and the pursuit of Happiness at risk. Back then who could have ever imagined packaged fake foods made with refined flour, sugar and long lists of chemical ingredients that no one can pronounce, meat from animals pumped up with drugs and unnaturally raised on outrageous amounts of toxic corn, and corn and soy sprayed with harmful chemicals and genetically tampered with to withstand those toxic chemicals when everything else sprayed with the chemicals dies?
