There are no gluten-free cities. Some might have more gluten-free food establishments than average, but none will be free of the stuff.

Of course, you could fix your own food, and be in complete control, and never have to worry about what others are doing. Wherever you live, you can make it gluten-free. As with many things, we are often better off anyway taking a DIY approach, than depending on others.

I agree that people with celiac disease are the ones with a serious problem, but it's not black and white. Some people don't tolerate it well. They don't have to worry about minute quantities in chips or using a contaminated toaster, but cutting most of the wheat from their diet can ease or eliminate gastrointestinal issues.

I think many places will have gluten free items available for purchase, even my po duk town has Udi products available. I have seen gluten free meals offered in small town restaurants too, it is not that hard to find, I would also think you can live anywhere & eat at home more, which is healthier is no many ways besides being able to eliminate gluten. I would not restrict my life due to a food allergy, you can do it anywhere (imo) & I know how hard it is I have a cousin with celiac, she was diagnosed 30 years ago, before it became trendy, & she has managed to travel around the world.

I’ve noticed people who “need” a gluten free diet tend to live in trendy neighborhoods or alfluent areas. Do rich left of center type people have a statistically higher rate of celiac disease? Maybe fancy lattes cause celiac lol. Funny poor people, rural people and working class people just don’t seem to need a gluten free diet.

Well is manageable but little annoying from my pov. One of reason more people got that issue now is change with crops like they hybrid some species of cereals and people not tolerate that. I got no celiac as far i check myself but each person got diffrent reaction so can have reaction but think that something else and live with that.i didnt know for many years. Fortunately more places offer gf options.
