A Judge Rules in Favor of the Gluten Free Diet

A judge ruled in favor of a mother who wants her 9 year old son's gluten free diet to be followed when her son is with the father--her ex-husband. The son suffers from Asperger's Syndrome and the mother has seen a dramatic improvement since he has been on a gluten free diet. Although some doctors remain skeptical, many parents, like this mother, see a big improvements in their children when they are following a gluten free diet. And now, one judge has ruled that the son must remain on a gluten free diet when he is with the father or his visitation rights will be taken away. This sends an important message to doctors--and spouses--who refuse to recognize the importance of dietary modifications for kids on the spectrum.
