This is great news for the 0.57% of people in the US who have celiac disease.

True, but it turns out the numbers are much higher and include many of those labelled as having IBS or Irritable Bowel Syndrome and other "diseases" defined by symptoms. Most are now called "Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity" and probably represent multiple etiologies. About half of them show antibodies to gluten or wheat and some actually have genes that define the condition. The GI people are now getting much better at defining etiology with fancier (and pricey) tests for various etiologies of which Celiac is only a minority.

(Having seen this almost happen, I am completely with you on the people who are making up a sensitivity because they think it's a health benefit.)
