Gluten Free prescription in Italy

I am moving to Italy.

No, not actually… But I want to!

I have weighed the pros and cons, and the gluten-free pros of Italy are putting America to shame.

In Italy, when diagnosed with Celiac disease or gluten intolerance you are given a “prescription” for gluten free products. The Italian government pays its prescribed gluten free citizens a small stipend every month for gluten free food. Employers also give their GF employees two additional days off every month, to go search out their food! Food which is easy to find, as it is supplied widely in Italy- It is even carried in pharmacies!

Wow – the italians have got it right! Come on America, gluten free prescriptions!
