At a rally yesterday in South Carolina, Senator and presidential candidate, Ted Cruz, said in a speech about supporting the U.S. military, “That’s why the last thing any commander should need to worry about is the grades he is getting from some plush-bottomed Pentagon bureaucrat for political correctness or social experiments – or providing gluten-free MREs.”
Senator Cruz’s comments are emblematic of the widespread ignorance about celiac disease and gluten-sensitivity that Celiac Disease Foundation must fight everyday of every year. We need investments in research. We need increased rates of diagnosis. We need drugs to treat accidental exposure to gluten. We don’t need this nonsense.
