"Google Fast Flip is a web application that lets users discover and share news articles. It combines qualities of print and the Web, with the ability to 'flip' through pages online as quickly as flipping through a magazine. It also enables users to follow friends and topics, discover new content and create their own custom magazines around searches."
Not all news appears in Google Fast Flip, so it is still important to create Google Alerts. For gluten free, only 10 results appeared from the last month, but for other topics, like cooking or social media, there were numerous results.
You can also browse news in four tabs: popular, recent, controversial, and headlines. My favorite is browsing the controversial health articles, where I found an interesting article called "In defense of naps."
