Modern Wheat, A Poison for Many, the Cause of “Wheat Belly”

Cardiologist Dr. William Davis, author of “Wheat Belly: Lose the Wheat, Lose the Weight, and Find Your Path Back to Health,” told CBS News that modern wheat was genetically modified back in the 1960’s and ’70’s to improve yield per acre but that it is now a “perfect, chronic poison.” He took issue with guidelines backed by medical experts that recommend substituting whole grains for processed white flour, saying that most of the wheat grown in the US today contain a protein called gliadin, which stimulates appetite and can lead to obesity, diabetes, joint aches, depression, and other maladies, including “wheat belly,” extra weight that is concentrated in the belly. The proof, he says, is the better quality of life that comes to those who eliminate wheat from their diet.
