Dr. Vikki Petersen on Why a Gluten Free Diet is not Dangerous

I had heard of the Nightline episode #161 about gluten free diets being dangerous so I watched it online.  If you watched it too, you were probably angered just like I was.  The segment in question spoke of gluten free diets as a potentially dangerous "fad diet" that is very popular now.

Here is a link to the episode.

I found this "response" to that episode online also and thought I would share it here.

This is Dr. Vikki Petersen's thoughts on the use of the word "dangerous" in conjunction with a gluten free diet.
Dr Vikki Petersen is an author, a clinical nutritionist, and a leader in gluten sensitivity diagnosis, research, and treatment.


  1. The only "danger" in a GF diet is the shrinking bottomline of our wheat-ladened culture...

  2. Thanks for posting this! I totally agree with Momnivore!
