Word of the Day: Glutard

Glutard = a person who avoids gluten because they believe it is the key to their health, without any evidence to support that belief.  There are those who would argue that Naturopathic doctors go around creating glutards.  There is a lot to know about food sensitivities and gluten specifically, which I will not address here.  Suffice it to say that some people do not need to avoid gluten but instead they focus on it with a neurotic intensity that earns them this label.  Many people are crazy around the subject of food.  This word has entered my vocabulary thanks to Laura Sol, welder and metal fabricator.
