A Study on Twins Offers Proof That We All Need Personalized Diets
Though they’re not without critics, the U.S. federal dietary guidelines have for years aimed to give all Americans a blueprint for good nutrition.

Study measures gluten in gluten-free labeled restaurant food
(Columbia University's Mailman School of Public Health) Even tiny amounts of gluten in foods are troublesome for people with celiac disease, and restaurants may be the hardest places to avoid the protein, finds a Columbia study.

More than 800 people around the country used a portable device to determine the presence of gluten in foods served at restaurants. Gluten was detected in almost a third of foods labeled “gluten free”, but was present in more than half of all gluten-free pizzas and pastas. Interestingly, restaurant foods were mo...
