Q&A: What reasons would one have a gluten-free diet other than having celiac disease?

Question by CHRIS M. IS [TURNED INTO A NEWT]: What reasons would one have a gluten-free diet other than having celiac disease?
I heard on Y! Answers of a vegan who didn’t eat gluten by choice apparently (they didn’t appear to suffer from celiac disease). Are there any pros/reasons that you can think of that would convince a vegan to go gluten-free if they didn’t suffer from celiac disease? Are there certain health benefits or anything?

Most if not all people have some level of sensitivity to gluten. Did you know 97% of people with Celiac dont even know they have it? Anyway-
A gluten free diet can be very healthy. Many people feel better without gluten, even with negative test results. A gluten free diet not only can help people from giving in and eating those cakes and cookies, but is also full of health benefits. Did you know that wheat really isnt that good for you? I suggest reading, “Healthier Without Wheat” Or even better, “Celiac Disease: A Hidden Epidemic” by Dr. Peter Green.

Edit: Actually, I had always had stomach problems but they got extremely worse after our family switched to whole wheat everything. Even then, my blood tests were negative all 3 times. But the gluten free diet has saved me!
