Dear EarthTalk:

I'd like to upgrade the energy efficiency of my condo but can't afford the up-front cost of new equipment and materials. Are there any federal or other programs designed to help working people afford to make such transitions?

Dear Dietitian,

I've been experiencing a lot of digestive problems like stomach cramping and bloating. My friend has celiac disease and thinks I may have it, too. I have an appointment with my doctor and have been reading up on celiac disease. I don't understand the differences between gluten sensitivity, celiac disease, and wheat allergy. Can you help?
