Coming Soon: A documentary film about the rising prevalence of celiac disease and non-celiac gluten sensitivity worldwide. It investigates the causes for this upsurge and what this means for our future. The film wants to raise awareness of celiac disease and non-celiac gluten sensitivity (NCGS) among the mainstream population in order to increase the celiac disease and NCGS diagnosis rate as much and as quickly as possible. Even today many patients still receive wrong treatments because their physicians don’t consider gluten sensitivity to be the cause for their patients’ ailments. In reality, it still takes six to ten years filled with endless doctors visits and countless pills until a patient finally receives the correct diagnosis and the treatment to most if not all of his or her ailments: a gluten-free diet.View Agrilicious' top 50 documentary films
