Gluten Freedom

Dr. Fasano is the nation’s leading expert on celiac disease and gluten-related disorders. He founded the Center for Celiac Research at Massachusetts General Hospital in 1996. This is a myth-dispelling, easy to read, and comprehensive book on what we need to know and how to live with the diagnosis. “In an era when a gluten-free diet has become the panacea for relief of symptoms for a large number of clinical decisions (GI, neurological, and inflammatory), evidence-based information is sorely needed for both the public and the practicing physician to appropriately decide when gluten should be removed from the diet. This book, Gluten Freedom, …provides the appropriate objective evidence to make that decision.” –W. Allan Walker, MD, Director, Div. of Nutrition, Harvard Medical School
