I have gluten intolerance, so I avoid the foods mentioned before. If you don't have a problem processing gluten containing food, it isn't "harmful" to you. People have survived on gluten containing foods for centuries. You can find plenty of healthy foods containing gluten. Also, many gluten free foods are VERY expensive ($5 to $7 for a loaf of bread), higher in calorie than "regular" bread, and often taste DISGUSTING , so if you don't have to be gluten free, I honestly don't recommend it.
