Gluten Freedom is the new book written by Dr. Alessio Fasano, MD, the founder and director of the Center for Celiac Research at Massachusetts General Hospital, and world-renowned pediatric gastroenterologist. The book is co-authored by Susie Flaherty, former senior editor at the University of Maryland and currently the communications director of the Center for Celiac Research. Dr. Fasano is a leading expert in the field of Celiac Disease (CD) and Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity (NCGS) and Gluten Freedom is an absolute must-read for anyone with Celiac Disease or Gluten Sensitivity.
“Thus, at the beginning of this journey, I had to explain constantly to my colleagues how to spell the word “celiac.” When I started writing this book several years ago, I was using an older version of Microsoft Word. Every time I wrote the word “celiac,” it was underlined in red, which is the symbol of a misspelled or unrecognized word. Now I use a new version of Microsoft Word that recognizes “celiac” in its spelling dictionary. The word celiac has finally made it into the popular lexicon. And although it might seem like a small thing, to me it’s a fitting symbol of how the awareness of celiac disease and gluten-related disorders has grown so much in such a brief span of time”. We have Dr. Fasano and his team to thank for putting Celiac Disease on the US medical map, convincing physicians that this auto-immune disease actually existed in North America!
Gluten Freedom is presented in four parts, each part containing several chapters filled with essential information on CD and NCGS. Dr. Fasano writes in easy to understand language, and makes even the most biological concepts compelling!
