Gluten expert Dr. Tom O’Bryan returns to the podcast to respond to recent skepticism regarding gluten sensitivity and gluten-free diets.
This one is by popular demand. A few weeks ago, my podcast interview with Alan Levinovitz, author of The Gluten Lie, caused quite a stir.
Due to a few controversial statements made during Alan’s show, my inbox nearly blew up with requests for a rebuttal episode with Dr. Tom O’Bryan, host of The Gluten Summit.
Dr. Tom was more than happy to give his take on The Gluten Lie. In fact, he was FIRED UP!
Here are my notes:
4:13 – Do YOU need to avoid gluten? Dr. O’Bryan tells us exactly who should avoid gluten and why.
9:21 – The one test that you should take to test for gluten sensitivity, and why the other tests might not give you the results you need.
16:15 – Are ancient grains really better for you? An interesting study tells us what all gluten is doing to all humans.
17:59 – Is gluten-free just a fad? The reasons why Dr. O’Bryan thinks gluten-free is here to stay.
24:33 – What we know about what gluten does to the body, why we don’t always know what’s going on, and why we still have a lot more to learn.
33:54 – The one thing guaranteed to damage your gut, a few other culprits to watch out for and why positive results of going gluten-free are probably NOT from the gluten.
39:27 – What Dr. O’Bryan thinks is really behind the nocebo effect. Plus, his beef with sensationalism and bunk studies.
47:30 – Weighing the benefits of wheat: why indigestible fiber doesn’t do damage like gluten does.
49:47 – The European wheat myth that could be harming you – even if you don’t feel it!
52:57 – Why you can’t avoid gluten 100%, what you can do to protect yourself from gluten contamination, and why it’s so important.
