Dietary Gluten Is Not Linked to Heart Risk in Non-Celiacs

Study shows that limiting whole grains as part of a reduced-gluten diet could actually increase heart attack risk in people without celiac disease

A study of more than 100,000 men and women revealed that dietary gluten is not associated with heart disease risk in people without celiac disease. The findings also suggest that limiting whole grains as part of a low-gluten diet may increase the risk of heart disease in people who do not have celiac disease.

The study, led by researchers at Columbia University Medical Center and Massachusetts General Hospital/Harvard Medical School, was published online today in the BMJ.
