Agreed. I'm gluten free (without having a medical diagnosis) but it took me almost no time at all to notice the benefits of cutting it out. Very little bloating/gas/discomfort compared to when I was eating gluten. I eat a couple of cheese its or a bite of a sandwich and it's back for the entire following day.
I tried it due to issues and found that it works for me. That makes me more in tune with my body, not a moron!
