    Dr. Peter Osborne from Gluten Free Society Featured on Fox News


    The Gluten Free Society was founded in 2010 by Dr. Peter Osborne, a board certified clinical nutritionist, as a way to help educate people on the far reaching effects of gluten sensitivities. Food allergies are on the rise and more people than ever are suffering from gluten intolerance. Grains are the inducers of many auto immune diseases and have been linked with more than one hundred and ninety negative health conditions. Dr. Peter Osborne was recently featured on Fox News to discuss what is causing the spike in food allergies and what a person can do to alleviate their symptoms.

    Dr. Osborne and the members of The Gluten Free Society have been examining and researching the causes over gluten sensitivity for over ten years. Their findings have been rather alarming and they attribute the rise of gluten sensitivities to one main factor. The fact is that food supplies have changed more in the last thirty years than they had in the previous ten thousand. With the addition of chemical pesticides and herbicides into the food supplies people have not had adequate time to build up a tolerance and leaves them vulnerable. Furthermore, genetic manipulation has increased the gluten content of grains twofold during this thirty year time period. Unfortunately, many of the foods recommended to replace gluten products are still dangerous for consumers suffering from gluten sensitivities and intolerances.

    The Gluten Free Society has found that common dieting trends and food choices, for those who are gluten intolerant, are often misleading or inaccurate. During his segment on Fox News Dr. Peter Osborne discusses how many people are advised to alter their diets to include certain foods. However, he points out the glaring mistakes with this method of treatment. Most diagnoses only check to see how a person's body reacts to gliadin (the gluten found in wheat) but the problem is that different grains contain different types of gluten. A person would have to completely eliminate all grains in order to recover from the damage gluten has done over the years of ingestion. Dr. Peter Osborne truly enlightens his audience during his Fox News segment. He promises that himself and the Gluten Free Society will continue to strive to provide people with the necessary information maintain a healthy gluten free lifestyle.
