Chappatis kill -- True or fake?

Videos are viral on social media that chappatis and pulkas made out of wheat flour, are harmful and might even lead to death. With this, fear has crept in to the minds of thousands of people, who consume chappatis and pulkas, as a diet to overcome weight problems. Even doctors recommend reduction of rice and consumption of wheat-based rotis and pulkas. The viral videos quoted gluten in wheat as the dangerous ingredient that could harm humans. But nutrition specialists said that it is not true. Only those who are allergic to gluten should avoid wheat, chappatis etc., they said. Otherwise chappatis are good for health and can help in reduction of weight, they added.
