A 42-year-old female asked:
any reason to go gluten free if you're negative for celiac's disease and gluten has not been a problem before?

No: There is no reason to avoid gluten in the absence of celiac and intolerance. In fact, gluten-free food is likely less healthy for you since it usually contains more fat or sugar in order to make up for the absence of gluten which makes the dough chewy and moist.
