AND HE ISN'T THE ONLY ONE SAYING SO...
CBS, YES, CBS, REPORTED ON THE FINDINGS IN JUNE OF LAST YEAR, BUT IT CAUSED FEW RIPPLES AS PERHAPS NO ONE WANTS TO BELIEVE WE ARE BEING POISONED BY THE "STAFF OF LIFE", OUR MAIN GRAIN....WHEAT.
SEVERAL STUDIES HAVE POINTED TO THE TOXICITY AND BRAIN DAMAGING EFFECTS OF TODAY'S WHEAT.
ALTHOUGH THE FACTS ARE OUT THERE, MAINSTREAM MEDIA IS TOO BUSY REPORTING ON JUSTIN BEEEEBURR TO PICK THIS VERY IMPORTANT ISSUE UP AND RUN WITH IT.
WHAT WE GET FROM AMERICA'S WHEAT FIELDS ISN'T WHAT WAS GROWN HERE IN THE PAST. LIKE SO MANY "ENHANCED" FOODS, WHEAT IS ONE OF THE "FRANKENFOODS" WE ALL NEED TO READ AND LEARN MORE ABOUT.
(CBS News) Modern wheat is a "perfect, chronic poison," according to
Dr. William Davis, a cardiologist who has published a book all about the
world's most popular grain.
Davis said that the wheat we eat these days isn't the wheat your
grandma had: "It's an 18-inch tall plant created by genetic research in
the '60s and '70s," he said on "CBS This Morning." "This thing has many
new features nobody told you about, such as there's a new protein in
this thing called gliadin. It's not gluten. I'm not addressing people
with gluten sensitivities and celiac disease. I'm talking about
everybody else because everybody else is susceptible to the gliadin
protein that is an opiate. This thing binds into the opiate receptors in
your brain and in most people stimulates appetite, such that we consume
440 more calories per day, 365 days per year."
Asked if the farming industry could change back to the grain it
formerly produced, Davis said it could, but it would not be economically
feasible because it yields less per acre.
SO, YOU SEE, PROFIT MEANS MORE THAN THE HEALTH OF AMERICANS, AS USUAL.
THINK ABOUT THAT FOR A FEW MINUTES!
SURE, IT MAY YIELD LESS, BUT IF WHAT YIELDS HIGHER IS A POISON TO HUMAN BODIES, WHO WANTS A HIGHER YIELD?
THINK ABOUT THAT....
However, Davis said a movement has begun with people turning away from wheat - and dropping substantial weight.
"If three people lost eight pounds, big deal," he said. "But we're
seeing hundreds of thousands of people losing 30, 80, 150 pounds.
Diabetics become no longer diabetic; people with arthritis having
People losing leg swelling, acid reflux, irritable
bowel syndrome, depression, and on and on every day."
To avoid these wheat-oriented products, Davis suggests eating "real
food," such as avocados, olives, olive oil, meats, and vegetables.
"(It's) the stuff that is least likely to have been changed by
agribusiness," he said. "Certainly not grains. When I say grains, of
course, over 90 percent of all grains we eat will be wheat, it's not
barley... or flax. It's going to be wheat.
"It's really a wheat issue."
Some health resources, such as the Mayo Clinic, advocate a more
balanced diet that does include wheat. But Davis said on "CTM" they're
just offering a poor alternative.
"All that literature says is to replace something bad, white enriched
products with something less bad, whole grains, and there's an apparent
health benefit - 'Let's eat a whole bunch of less bad things.' So I
take...unfiltered cigarettes and replace with Salem filtered cigarettes,
you should smoke the Salems. That's the logic of nutrition, it's a
deeply flawed logic. What if I take it to the next level, and we say,
'Let's eliminate all grains,' what happens then?
"That's when you see, not improvements in health, that's when you see transformations in health."

GREENMEDINFO.COM RECENTLY HAD A FINE ARTICLE ABOUT THIS AS WELL, AND, AS ALWAYS, ITS FOUNDER, SAYER JI, PROVIDES IMPECCABLE DOCUMENTATION.

'Gluten Brain': Wheat Cuts Off Blood Flow To Frontal Cortex
<<Starting with a 1997 case study published in the Journal of Internal Medicine involving
a 33-year-old patient, with pre-existing diagnosis of 'schizophrenic'
disorder, who first came to medical attention for severe diarrhea and
weight loss (classical symptoms of gluten intolerance), brain scan
technology determined that cerebral hypoperfusion (decreased blood flow
to the brain) was occurring within the patient's frontal cortex.[i]
A gluten free diet resulted not only in the normalization of intestinal
damage and autoantibodies, but the return of blood flow to the frontal
cortex, and the resolution of schizophrenic symptoms.
Then, in 2004, a follow up study was performed to verify if the 1997
case study was just a fluke, or perhaps a widespread effect of untreated
celiac disease. Published in the American Journal of Medicine,
researchers from the Institute of Internal Medicine, Catholic
University, Rome, Italy, compared 15 untreated celiac patients without
neurological or psychiatric disorders other than anxiety or depression,
with 15 celiac patients who were on a gluten-free diet for almost 1
year, and 24 healthy volunteers of similar sex and age. All subjects
underwent cerebral single photon emission computed tomography
The results were remarkable, with dramatically increased incidence of impaired brain blood flow in untreated celiac patients,>>
SO...WAS THE NEW WHEAT CREATED JUST TO GIVE US ALL "GLUTEN BRAIN"?
AND IF TOP MEDICAL JOURNALS PRINTED THESE FINDINGS, SHOULDN'T WE BE CONCERNED ENOUGH TO TRY NOT EATING WHEAT TO SEE IF THERE IS A DIFFERENCE IN OUR OWN LIVES?
IF YOU DON'T READ ANYTHING ELSE ABOUT WHAT PROBLEMS WHEAT CAN CAUSE IN THE HUMAN BODY, PLEASE READ A FEW LINKS FROM THIS ARTICLE:
<<But anecdotes and "subjective experience" aside, the type of clinical
research that constitutes "Truth," with a capital T, from the
perspective of the dominant medical establishment, can be found on the
National Library of Medicine's biomedical database known as MEDLINE. This vast bibliographic archive contains over 21 million citation entries, which as of time of this writing, contains 9,776 references to gluten. >>
SOMETHING THAT HUMAN BEINGS COUNTED ON TO SUSTAIN LIFE FOR THOUSANDS OF YEARS HAS BEEN CHANGED INTO SOMETHING THAT WREAKS HAVOC ON MILLIONS OF LIVES EACH YEAR. FROM "SIMPLE" ALLERGIES TO LIFE THREATENING ILLNESSES TO BRAIN DYSFUNCTION...WHY AREN'T ALL MAINSTREAM MEDIA SITES BLARING THIS IN HEADLINES ALL OVER THE INTERNET?
IF YOU OR SOMEONE YOU LOVE HAS "UNEXPLAINABLE" ILLNESS, WHY NOT TRY CUTTING OUT ALL WHEAT FOR EVEN ONE MONTH?
IT JUST MAY BE ONE OF THE BEST THINGS YOU EVER DID.
AND WHAT CAN REPLACE WHEAT IN OUR DIETS?
WHAT DOESN'T CARRY SUCH TOXINS?
MAIL ONLINE HAS SOME SUGGESTIONS:
Check carefully as if there's even a trace of wheat or gluten in your
food you won't get a fair test of whether wheat is your problem or not.
If it turns out you are intolerant to wheat, avoiding it will make you feel better and leaving it out will start to become second nature.
you'll have to make sure you include other whole grain foods in your
diet as these are healthy sources of fibre that cut risk of bowel
disease and cardio-vascular disease.
Good sources other than
brown rice you can experiment with are buckwheat, millet, amaranth and
quinoa. These are available from health food stores.
If you feel you need specialist help, ask your GP to refer you to a state registered dietitian.
LIVESTRONG.COM HAS AN EVEN BETTER ARTICLE, WHICH I HIGHLY RECOMMEND:
How to Replace Wheat
<< There is an abundance of grains to choose from when replacing wheat in
your diet, especially if you are only replacing wheat and are not
concerned with gluten that is found in wheat, rye, barley and some oats.
Replacing wheat is a manageable task if you are committed to avoiding
certain foods and open to trying new alternatives. >>
LOOK, WE DON'T KNOW IF A THING CAN HELP OR HURT UNTIL WE SEE IT FOR OURSELVES.
EVERYONE, EVERY HUMAN SYSTEM IS DIFFERENT, BUT IF CUTTING OUT WHEAT COULD DRAMATICALLY MAKE LIFE BETTER, INSURE BETTER HEALTH, SMALL PRICE TO JUST CUT IT OUT, ISN'T IT?
THIS ARTICLE WAS A REAL EYE-OPENER FOR ME:
Gliadin: The Universal Human Poison
GLIADIN...FOUND IN THE NEW WHEAT, BUT NOT IN ANCIENT WHEAT GRAINS...
WE MUST WONDER WHY THE CHANGE...IS IT REALLY JUST FOR PROFITS?
IF SO, SHAME ON THOSE WHO OFFER IT TO THE WORLD...
BE WELL, AND THANKS FOR READING.
