NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams reported on August 2 that going gluten free probably “isn’t worth it”.
In the televised report, NBC’s chief “medical reporter” Nancy Snyderman stated that “going gluten free has become a fad” that makes grocers in the US over $4 Billion per year!
She goes on to blast a “health conscience Yoga instructor” who stated she doesn’t have Celiac disease but feels much better without gluten in her life by next playing a distorted, out of context clip of Suzanne Simpson of the Columbia University Celiac Disease Center saying “… they’re not likely to lose weight … the [gluten free] foods are higher in calories …]” while showing pictures of cookies!
Nancy then goes on to say you need to “separate the hype from the truth” …
What’s this all about?? Why would a news outlet twist the words of an adored leading Celiac doctor and a cute Yoga Instructor?
