OK, this is crude humor and definitely a TV-14 sketch, but for anyone here who does not have celiac disease, a wheat allergy, or any other medical reason to avoid wheat, there is this “wheatbelly” concept that indicates that gluten may be addictive and make you want more and more and perhaps no one should eat gluten because the proteins that make up “gluten”, especially gliadin, are addictive. The science on this topic is not exactly overwhelming. The best proof of the addictive properties of bread that I can think of is the fact that if you take my relatives out to dinner you will see three people eating four baskets of bread even though grilled grouper is on its way.

I am glad that gluten-free is finally enough in the public consciousness that the Colbert Report thinks it is worth making fun of. Although my inability to eat bread is not a joke, I am OK with anything that brings attention to this problem.

So without further ado, here is the link to the sketch.
