Gluten has become a rising issue in modern times when it comes to the food we eat. Some parents are eliminating gluten from their child’s diet in order to treat celiac disease, a rising autoimmune disorder in both kids and adults. Others are switching to a gluten-free diet claiming that it has changed their child’s behaviour and quality of life for the better. It is even said to have dramatically improved the symptoms of autism within some children.
