My advice to Dr Gaesser would be to start looking for a new career. For starters Celiac disease is very much an underdiagnosed condition with something in the range of only about 10% of patients with Celiac disease actually being aware of it, so the problem is actually much wider than the good Dr would have us believe.
The problem of gluten intolerance is a much wider issue with estimates being much closer to 40% of people being intolerant to some degree, plus the numerous links to various autoimmune diseases, depression, anxiety, shizophrenia, narcolepsy all make a strong case for eliminating gluten from general consumption.
Gluten containing products contain very little actual nutrition (which is why most have to be 'fortified') and are a completely unessential part of the food industry except to support the financial stake that wheat/grain farmers have in the sale of their crops.
Dr Gaesser's comments are obviously heavily biased as his livelihood is dependant on the industry and it is hard to take his claims seriously.
When going gluten free, people should try to adopt a more paleo type diet anyway, rather than just trying to replace gluten based bakery products with gluten-free bakery products. Your health will be much better for it.
