“When a professor of East Asian philosophy and religion compares dietary myths that are expressed in religious terms with such myths dressed up in clinical terms, the result is a fascinating read.  Both can have a grain of truth. Both can appeal far more broadly than that grain of truth supports. Our challenge is to discern when our gullibility, and not the grain of truth, is causing us to be compliant, anxious, or ill. Professor Levinovitz uses the saga of gluten sensitivity as one of several compelling object lessons.”
