I'm posting this link in as many places possible to spread the word about this event taking place to raise the government's awareness of the necessity for gluten free labeling on food products.
The FDA has been dragging their feet since 2007 in finalizing the standards for gluten free labeling. In order to draw attention to the FDA's inaction, the gluten free community is holding the Gluten Free Food Labeling Summit in Washington D.C. on May 4, 2011 (for the start of the newly recognized National Celiac Awareness Month) and creating the largest gluten free cake-- symbolizing the importance of the event (and I LOVE cake).
What does the title "1 in 133" mean, you may ask... 1 in 133 people have celiac disease.
To put it in perspective...
• Type 1 Diabetes affects 3 million people; 6% of those diagnosed also have celiac disease.
