He doesn't really address the health aspects or the reasons Paleo/Primal/Ancestral eaters shun gluten. Just because it tastes better than tofu, it doesn't mean gluten is good for you.

I think the 2 weeks number for gluten is how long it takes the damage/inflammation to heal from a single gluten dose. Gluten itself doesn't sit in your gut for that long. As for other chemical contaminants, it all depends on what our bodies do... (more)
