    Anyone willing to subject their theories to serious testing has my respect. We need more researchers doing this.

    This research is about non-celiac gluten sensitivity. I still have not read the paper, but it looks like its about gluten not being the isolated culprit. That does not rule out another factor in wheat, or gluten in combination with something else.

    A similar story arose with serotonin. Researchers knew in the late 80s that a lack of serotonin did not cause depression. That does not rule out other possibilities though.

    I have been forced to give up wheat lately. I have also been reluctant to claim its a gluten problem. It might be. It might not be.
