  1. I have to take a little issue with this. In your review of What the Health?! you made it clear that a minor correlation with a given disease isn’t enough reason to omit meat. But here you’re arguing a minor issue with gluten is enough to omit it. Seems a bit of a mixed message here. Just something to think about.

    • Actually the gluten episode is not about correlation at all it is about direct relationships and epithelial lining damage from gliadin compound as well as the mechanism of action of zonulin protein on gut junctions and the role that gluten plays. There is a big difference!
