New Study Shows That People Without Celiac Disease Should Not Eat a Gluten-Free Diet
The researchers therefore conclude that the use of gluten-free diets among people without celiac disease should not be promoted. In people with celiac disease, dietary gluten causes intestinal damage and inflammation, and is associated with an increased risk of coronary heart disease. These symptoms and risks are reduced after treatment with a gluten-free diet. The use of gluten free diets has however increased in recent years among people without celiac disease, partly due to the belief that gluten can have harmful health effects.
