The gluten-free craze has been around for a while now and the latest product to claim the title? Condoms. ER physician expert Dr. Travis Stork says these gluten-free condoms feel like “marketing 101.” These condoms are a lot more expensive than normal ones.
Plastic surgeon expert Dr. Andrew Ordon breaks down the facts. Only 1% of the population actually has a serious sensitivity to gluten called celiac disease. At the same time, 20% of the population state that they are going gluten-free. So, there is a large group of people buying into gluten-awareness and Dr. Ordon believes they might buy this type of condom. However, he doesn’t think there is any reason to!
Watch: Drs. Investigate Gluten-Free Dining
Dr. Travis notes that for the few who have celiac disease, it is very serious. For them, gluten can cause terrible reactions when ingested. He says the problem with all the marketing is that it confuses people about what they should be avoiding and when to be worried. He gets frustrated by the implication that a gluten-free product is always healthier; just because something is gluten-free doesn’t mean it’s superior.
“If you don’t have a gluten allergy or sensitivity, save your money!” Dr. Travis advises people in regards to gluten-free foods. As for gluten-free condoms, The Doctors aren't on board!
