I wish I had looked into this sooner so that I could have been supporting and promoting this longer. However, if you haven’t, take the time to head over to this site and sign the petition. This will hopefully be making a huge difference in the life of many, many people, to have GF labeling.
From the site:
“Some people (maybe even the government?) think gluten free is a fad. They’re the ones who’ve never been sick, or watched helplessly as a loved one suffers the effects of gluten contamination. Only a massive show of support from the individuals, organizations and companies that comprise our community will give us the visibility – the credibility – to raise our collective concern about gluten-free food labeling.“
“One in 133 Americans has Celiac disease (also known as celiac sprue, coeliac disease, non-tropical sprue or gluten sensitive enteropathy), a chronic and permanent sensitivity to the food protein gluten, found in the grains wheat, barley and rye.”
