But what was enlightening was how wide spread wheat intolerance might be, how todays wheat is radically different than what our ancestors ate in the past, and how whole grains might be just as unhealthy as refined white wheat.
Personally since I stopped eating wheat, plus other grains, things I've noticed is that I've stopped developing dental cavities, cholesterol levels improved, and the grumpy gut issue became so much better - thankfully!
Dr. Davis has a blog sight in addition to his book.
Glad you posted the link. Thanks! I find it interesting reading. There is research that was done decades before this book was written that backs the doctors findings but the issue has gone largely ignored.
It does give a person pause.

I bet that goes over big!
Seriously, bread and bread products are such a part of our diet it would be a challenge to do even a part of what is proposed. At least for me that is.
