Why It's Dangerous My Food Allergy Is Perceived As A Fad
"I’ve had people deliberately serve me gluten in order to see if I was really allergic or simply subscribing to a fad diet. In these instances, someone’s opinion about my dietary choices have left me sick on the couch for days. When things like that happen, it makes you feel out of control and unsafe. It feels dangerous. The fad perception is making my food allergy into a joke, and I’m tired of being the punchline."

Lots of folks are adopting a gluten-free diet these days and that trend has just extended into the art world. Now the diehard gluten-free crowd can enjoy classic works of art without fear of violating their dietary restrictions thanks to a new Tumblr site called the Gluten Free Museum. Created by French graphic artist Arthur Coulet, the virtual museum shares classic works of art that have been altered to remove all traces of gluten (wheat, barley, and rye) and even any tools used in their production.

Some of these changes are subtle, while others dramatically change the artwork, such a this piece from The Four Seasons by Giuseppe Arcimboldo:

Even works of ancient art have been made safe for gluten-free viewing:

Disney movies too:
