GENERAL
I advocate food labeling of Gluten Free Products. I am a sufferer of Celiac Disease and since there are over 100 food additives that cause an auto immune reaction in Celiacs like myself, it is overwhelming to have to read every label. Moreover, if I somehow misread a label and ingest a harmful contaminant, I increase exponentially the risk that I will later suffer from cancer. Since Celiac affects one out of every 100 people, I think something must be done.
