You’re on the road and need to stop for a bite, or on the way to work and forgot to pack a lunch, or you’re just craving a quick snack.

FDA Sued for Failing to Regulate Gluten

fda-sued-for-failing-to-regulate-gluten Those with celiac and gluten intolerance know the deal. Gluten is hiding everywhere: in our food, in our makeup, and yes, in our medication. One man has had enough, and is taking his complaint as high as the FDA, who he is now suing.
