I did not misunderstand, and I apologize if I came off snippy. I appreciate the chance to bring some awareness to the situation. I refuse to walk into
a restaurant because of the fact that a fad has given the celiac sufferers a bad name. I encounter it with people in my daily life as well. The fad
portion of it has been blown way up and people assume because I won't touch food that it is because of the fad and I have to take the time to explain
and still get blank stares. Most of the time when I see the interviews, like the one posted, or read the articles I am helpless to change a
perception. This being ATS and having the chance to interject, I did. So, while the ignorance of some people has made a bad name for those of us that
do suffer, the fact that people are willing to spend outrageous amounts of money on this particular fad has made life much easier. There's always two
sides to a coin right?
That being said, I absolutely agree that we should be aware of why we consume what we do, in any circumstance!
