Exploring the sense and nonsense of food and health

What’s the Problem with Wheat?

Leave a comment


What is the problem with wheat?  The question is growing with few answers.  Best selling books by two physicians have brought the problems to light; a search on PubMed has revealed  more questions; and now there’s a  documentary on the issue.  What is going on? People have been eating wheat for centuries, so what has changed?  It does not appear that gluten is the whole story. Now other issues are emerging.

Wheat flour is everywhere and is abundantly used in processed foods indicated in the list of ingredients. If you find that cutting down on wheat helps your digestive or other health problems,  please don’t self-diagnose but seek the advice of your doctor,  a registered dietitian or other health professional trained in digestive health.
