Gluten-free expert, author, coach and advocate Jules Shepard hosts a weekly show offering news, interviews with intriguing guests, gluten-free baking tips and otherwise lively conversation.
May is Celiac Awareness month, so who better than world-renowned pediatric gastroenterologist, research scientist and entreprenuer Alessio Fasano, M.D. to invite onto the Gluten-Free Voice? Dr. Fasano founded the University of Maryland Center for Celiac Research in 1996 and its mission is to offer state-of-the art research, teaching and clinical expertise for the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of gluten-related disorders, including celiac disease, wheat allergy and gluten sensitivity.
Dr. Fasano will speak to the latest research on gluten sensitivity, celiac disease & schizophrenia, and medications to block the celiac auto-immune reaction.
Dr. Fasano will also speak out against any unsafe restaurant designations that confuse the gluten-free consumer. The "Amber Designation" issued for Domino's Pizza is the most vivid example, and Dr. Fasano will outline why he believes this type of "approved - not approved" designation will be harmful to anyone living gluten free for medical reasons.
