Coeliac book nominated for Best Health Book award

I am very excited to announce that Alex Gazzola - health writer, honourary gluten free-er and friend of this blog - has been shortlisted for a Guild of Health Writers Award 2012 for his book, Coeliac Disease: What you need to know.  It is fantastic news for Alex, and I'm sure you would want to join me in wishing him all the very best with the award.  If you haven't already, head over to Alex's blog Food Allergy and Intolerance Ink for informative articles, research and news on Coeliac Disease, food allergies and food intolerance, all written with his trademark mix of  sensitivity and gentle humour.

Coeliac Disease: What you need to know, the new book by health writer Alex Gazzola, has been shortlisted for a prestigious Guild of Health Writers Award 2012 for “Best Health Book”.

Nutritionist and coeliac Ian Marber, formerly of The Food Doctor, called the book “a must-have for sufferers, medics, caterers and restaurant staff”.
