I totally agree. The times have changed, not because the danger is greater (it isn't), but becauseRead More we have become increasingly risk averse. Perhaps that is due to the rise of advocacy groups who have nothing to gain if we are complacent. Are we really surprised that people who are terrified of their own food would be any less anxious when it comes to their kids? Fortunately, kids are pretty adaptable, and I'm sure they will weather our current level of paranoia. Then again, maybe I'm being to complacent!

I have been almost completely off gluten for a few months now, mostly to accompany my husband as heRead More gives up wheat. But then yesterday I caved: I got two little cookies from Whole Foods and ate them. This morning I woke up with stuffed-up ears. I am sensitive, not allergic, to gluten, but I wonder how many of us have little symptoms like that (which I've had for years) that would go away if we cut out the wheat? Donuts: not a necessity. Wheat: maybe not so much (rice, corn, millet, quinoa, etc.).
