Frankengrain to be avoided

Dear editor,

Most compelling for me is the following information I received from the Wheat Belly book and the Wheat Belly Cookbook.

Dear editor,

Most compelling for me is the following information I received from the Wheat Belly book and the Wheat Belly Cookbook by Dr. Davis:

Dr. Davis argues that the wheat today has no resemblance whatsoever to the wheat that we knew in the 1950s or in past centuries.

He calls modern wheat a Frankengrain, a grain which has been modified, and genetically restitched over and over again throughout time, by farmers and then agricultural scientists for the sole purpose of increasing yield production per acre of farmland.

Today’s modern semi-dwarf, 24-inch mutant, high-yield wheat not only looks vastly different but according to Dr. Davis, has been so fundamentally altered, that it increases appetite, ignites inflammation in the body, causes blood sugar to skyrocket, and can destroy joint and intestinal health.

Some corporations and organizations still retain the power to keep the message out there that modern wheat is not only healthy, but should be a substantial part of a balanced diet.

With removal of modern wheat from the diet, Dr. Davis argues, you feel better, have less pain overall and in joints, heartburn goes away, sleep is deeper, energy levels are up, asthma and sinus issues improve, skin conditions heal, blood sugar and cholesterol levels go down as well as a list of other benefits to most organs and systems in the body.

Eliminating this modern wheat from the diet is so much more than weight loss.
