Why why….oh WHY does the news media insist on calling gluten intolerance a gluten ALLERGY? That is not what it is, even though most peeps with gluten intolerance call it that out at restaurants. Restaurant staff respond better to the word “allergy” than they do to “celiac disease” or “intolerance” or “autoimmune disorder”, because “allergy” brings images of swollen airways, anaphylactic shock, and emergency rooms to mind.
This is still a good article, but I hate when writers call it an allergy.  Not an allergy.  AUTOIMMUNE DISORDER.
