Are you one of those folks who, even though you don’t have celiac disease, feels much better having shunned gluten from your diet?
Unfortunately the science shows there’s a 100% chance that’s either in your head or something else in your diet, entirely.
I know, you’re going to say that an Australian scientist showed that gluten sensitivity is real. Unfortunately that very same guy just reversed that study with a new study that showed respondents, not knowing whether they were on a gluten free, low gluten or standard diet, reported the exact same symptoms for all three diets… And the best part is that the scientist went all “next level” on the study. If you wish to know just how far he went, check this article out. In a stroke of genius, the scientist also made each person their own control.
Here’s the important sentence: “In contrast to our first study… we could find absolutely no specific response to gluten.”
So there you have it folks, that gluten sensitivity is in your head. You don’t really feel better than me, you feel better than you, because you quit the gluten. The power of the mind is an amazing thing. Your brain makes it so.
The important thing, ladies and gentlemen, is that you can once again enjoy that burger on a bun.
