Today I am struck by the idea that we have much science showing that we will make this planet inhospitable for humans and we do nothing. Yet, unless you have Celiac disease, there's not much science behind the gluten-free trend and everybody's on board.

@jalcine Sure, there's hoards of gluten-free products in the store. There's tests you can take to see if you have an intolerance, but the medical professionals I know say there's still no conclusive evidence that gluten is an issue.*

I now know more people quitting gluten, then vegetarians. "Climate change sounds terrible," says the person driving their Hummer to their cattle ranch.
*Medical world still seems medieval and we're all individuals. 1 in 133 Americans are celiac.
