Cardiologist exposes “healthy whole grains” for the incredibly destructive genetic monsters they’ve become
Modern wheat contain forms of gliadin proteins, glutenins, wheat germ ag-glutinin, and other proteins never before encountered by humans
These products were not tested for human consumption before use
Compounds have opiate-like effect – stimulate appetite and encourage to eat more wheat
Cardiologist, Dr. William Davis is a New York Times #1 Best Selling Author, and the Medical Director and founder of the Wheat Belly Lifestyle Institute, as well as the Cureality program. Listen to what he has to say about wheat and how it has been genetically modified to bear no resemblance to the wheat of 100 years ago.
How Dr. William Davis discovered the wheat problem:
“Over 80% of the people I meet today are pre-diabetic or diabetic. In an effort to reduce blood sugar, I asked patients to remove all wheat products from their diet based on the simple fact that, with few exceptions, foods made of wheat flour raise blood sugar higher than nearly all other foods. Yes, that’s true for even whole grains. More than table sugar, more than a Snickers bar. Organic, multigrain, sprouted–it makes no difference. People returned several months later and did indeed show lower blood sugars, often sufficient for pre-diabetics to be non-prediabetics.
But it was the other results that took me by surprise:
- weight loss of 25 to 30 lbs over several months
- marked improvement or total relief from arthritis
- improvement in asthma sufficient to chuck 2 or 3 inhalers
- complete relief from acid reflux and irritable bowel syndrome symptoms
- disappearance of leg swelling and numbness
- increased mental clarity, deeper sleep, and more stable moods and emotions
I witnessed incredible experiences like the 26-year old man incapacitated by full-body joint pains who started to jog again, pain-free. And the 38-year old schoolteacher who, just weeks before her surgeon scheduled colon removal and ileostomy bag, experienced a cure from ulcerative colitis and intestinal hemorrhage and stopped all medications.”
Why was this happening?
Dr Davis began to investigate and turned his attention to the source – the wheat itself.
He spoke to agricultural geneticists and studied available research and information material. He discovered that:
“modern wheat had undergone extensive changes, changes introduced primarily for purposes of increased yield per acre, converting the traditional 4 1/2-foot tall “amber waves of grain” into a high-yield 18-inch tall, stocky semi-dwarf strain.
The changes were not just in outward appearance, but were accompanied by changes in numerous other components—none had been tested for suitability for human consumption. Products made from modern wheat contain forms of gliadin proteins, glutenins, wheat germ ag-glutinin, and other proteins never before encountered by humans.”
His findings led him to advise a simple change in diet that yields huge health benefits – namely cut all products made from wheat. He is not he says referring to gluten, a known problem for people suffering from celiac disease. Rather he is referring to the all the other destructive effects of wheat or rather the modern version of wheat that has the potential to effect everyone and not just celiacs.
“From arthritis to acid reflux to schizophrenia, these can be either caused or made worse by wheat — this food we are advised to eat more of. It’s about being set free from the peculiar appetite-stimulating effects of the opiate-like compounds unique to wheat. It’s also about losing weight–10, 20, or 30 pounds is often just the start.”
