It appears that about 60 years ago, wheat was altered genetically to make it grow more abundantly helping feed much of the Third World. However, according to Dr. Davis, the genetic alteration has markedly changed the properties of wheat. He believes and he documents well a rapid rise in obesity, intestinal diseases and other medical ails that can be directly related to the ingestion of wheat products.
Wheat products, which for many of us are the staple of our diet whether it’s through breads or pasta, is implicated in the rapid rise of diabetes, celiac disease, heart disease as well as a link to Alzheimer’s.
The book is extremely informative, well written and documented scientifically to the point where I think it is a worthy read for all of us who are interested in good health and longevity.
On a personal level, I’ve become wheatless after reading this book. It has not been easy since a great staple of my diet was wheat products but it’s getting easier with each passing day.
I strongly suggest the ingestion of "Wheat Belly" by Dr. Davis as an alternative to the wheat we ingest.

As always, I appreciate your comments.
