Esther Rockett Has Attacked Those Who Opt For Healthy Eating Including Gluten Free And Dairy Free Diet Choices
Esther Rockett has labelled a gluten and dairy free diet as extreme and dangerous and attacked people’s choice of this diet alleging that is it the sign of being in a cult. In Byron Bay, a town which led the country in adopting vegetarianism four decades ago, and where there is a choice in every café to cater for diet choices, Esther Rockett’s attacks on people’s choice of diet should be a concern. It goes against Byron Bay’s inclusiveness and a place that draws people from all over wishing to escape the stifling effects of intolerance and imposed conformity.
The choice to give up caffeine, alcohol, eating gluten and dairy, and sugar is viewed by Esther Rockett as unhealthy – she has proudly said that she eats gluten irrespective of being diagnosed with an intolerance; would you take nutritional advice from this woman who has advocated eating gluten even when you are intolerant?
She ridiculously casts a gluten and dairy-free diet as the strategy of a pernicious cult leader to keep a guileless following in a submissive state. In this she appears to have worked up discredited anti-cult literature where a Hindu vegetarian diet was argued to put adherents into a susceptible and gullible state.
The many hundreds of people in the Bay area who have embraced a similar diet would be amazed to hear that they are under the spell of an evil cult. So too would the people who have taken up the paleo-diet and the operators of cafes and restaurants catering to it.
Far from being extreme or unusual, a gluten and dairy free diet is reported by many people, not simply sufferers of sinusitis and celiac disease, as delivering positive health benefits, and finds support in leading-edge scientific studies about the health benefits of such choices.
When it comes to attacking people for their choice of diet, we would like to get the message across that Esther Rockett has picked the wrong town.
