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."
