Does wheat contribute to ill-health ?

Dr. William Davis believes modern wheat crops could be contributing to several chronic health conditions.

Dr. Davis contends that the wheat that is grown in modern farms and that makes it in to our everyday diets is the product of genetic research and contains proteins that are contributing to everything from diabetes to depression. Gliadin is the main culprit, a protein that is believed to stimulate appetite and could increase daily consumption by as much as 440 calories.

Davis claims that an increasing number of people are turning away from eating wheat-based products in the hope of improving their health with avocados, olives, olive oil, meats, and vegetables being suggested as more suitable alternatives.

"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."

Modern wheat does not have gliadin in it because it's a new thing. Gliadin has always been one of the components with gluten. It is in ancient wheat too. How much gliadin and gluten are in a wheat does depend on the class and variety- the most common bread wheats, hard red spring and winter wheats have a higher protein, and more gluten and yep gliadin. Durum- pasta wheat, has less than bread wheats. Einkorn has even less than durum.

I try not to eat a lot of bread, sugar,etc. because I'm diabetic. I try to eat more veggies,etc. I do eat some fruit because it's good for you.And I eat fat free dairy,though sometimes I forget about the pint of milk in the fridge and wind up throwing it out. because i didn't drink it. I'm going to order some heirloom seeds which are not GMOs from Baker Creek Farms and grow my own veggies.You can get bread from rice and tapioca in the stores, but they are expensive.I have seen natural grains ground for flour in the stores, but as far as wheat goes, not sure on that score. Seems like everything... [More]

How strange. My diet consists mostly of white bread, toast, juice, pizza, beer and milk, at least 5 days a week and I just had a bit of a cold 1 day the last 2 and half years. I rarely eat what people call "healthy" food, and I party quite hard on the and been doing so the last 10 years... how do you explain that? People blame sugars, karbonhydrates, fat, whatever... From my experience, what really matters when it comes to your physical health has less to do with what you put in your mouth but how much.... the body isn't built to handle a royal buffet of everything you ever want every day.

Everyday I see people at the grocery store, in machine wheel chairs who are 300+ pounds, stocking their baskets with 3 liter cokes, corny dogs, 2lb. bags of doritos, fried chicken from the deli, etc. I really don't think these fat people are eating much wheat, in fact some of them probably haven't heard of wheat. I did not know Coke came in 3 liter bottles.

Hasn't anyone else noticed that everyone who gets tested for gluten alergies these days turns out to be to be allergic? edited for spelling I was tested for a gluten allergy and was negative. I did turn out to have fructose malabsorption disorder which is not an immune thing.

mind you, three geneations ago people were dropping dead from TB ( was it TB or was it something else?) in "real milk", so not all "real fods" are 100% safe either. Unpateurized milk is the main natural source of TB and is a big spreader of toxic E. coli species.

Yes thank you, I am talking about modern wheat that has been genetically modified to produce bigger yields and now it has something called gliadin in it because it was modified. Organically grown, it still doesn't matter because they are using a modified seed so same result. Even if its whole wheat never been bleached it still has it in it. Have to watch the whole wheat breads and such because they put gluten in it. Most cereal grains were genetically modified to produce bigger yields BCE. Gliadin is present in all Triticum grass species and is partcially responsible for wheat's ability to ris... [More]
