Wheat's weight-promoting effects are newly confirmed. Used to add weight to cattle before slaughter, wheat has been used to pack on the pounds in animal husbandry since the advent of the discipline. Why should we be surprised that it adds weight to humans who eat it as well?
Cereal grains—the world’s most abundant food source—can adversely affect human behavior and mental health
Why is it important to recognize gastrointestinal inflammation? A look at the central role of the duodenum for our health.
Wheat consumption has been linked to psychiatric conditions like schizophrenia for over 60 years, but recent research indicates the mind-altering properties of this popular food are, in part, caused by it cutting off blood flow to the frontal cortex of the brain.
There is a growing awareness that glyphosate is much more toxic than we have been led to believe, and I am confident that in time it will be banned worldwide, just like DDT
Now that celiac disease has been allowed official entry into the annals of established medical conditions, and gluten intolerance is no longer entirely a fringe medical concept, the time has come to draw attention to the powerful little chemical in wheat known as 'wheat germ agglutinin' (WGA) which is largely responsible for many of wheat's pervasive, and difficult-to-diagnose, ill effects
Some legal analysts and health writers initially wondered if the FDA's proposed guidelines would mean that homeopathic medicines may become "illegal"
Cultured food has a wide range of health benefits, but recent research shows it may also degrade highly toxic pesticide residues found in our food.
Autism is a complex neurodevelopmental disorder whose incidence has been rising dramatically in the past two decades, in step with the dramatic rise in the use of glyphosate (the active ingredient in the pervasive herbicide Roundup) on core food crops
Of all the illnesses in industrial society, diabetes takes the greatest toll. Over 100,000 people die from complications of diabetes each year. Another million lose quality of life due to metabolic syndrome. Diabetes adds $135 billion to the annual cost of healthcare in the U.S.1 Yet diabetes remains avoidable, treatable, and reversible.
Ancient Roman soldiers were punished either with decimation or deprivation of their wheat rations. What does this tell us about the addictive power of wheat?
Grains have gotten a bad rap in recent years, with the rise in popularity of paleo and ketogenic diets turning people away from many carbohydrate foods. But oats are an exception to the “no carb” rule. Packed with slow-burning energy, oats are a versatile super food that can fuel an active day and contribute to lifelong disease resistance
Leaky Gut Syndrome is a rapidly growing condition that millions of people struggle with and don't even know it can lead to many other health conditions.
Wheat could be driving more than your digestive system crazy.
While wheat is well known to wreak havoc on the gastrointestinal health of genetically susceptible folks, such as those with celiac disease, and more recently, irritable bowel syndrome, new research published in the journal Psychiatry Research indicates that sensitivity to one of the components in wheat known as gliadin could be driving some into states of acute mania.
People often balk at the concept that a gluten-free diet may improve the condition of autistic children. For so many who have tried it, the proof is not in academic publications but in the (gluten free) pudding. Nothing is more compelling than seeing improvement with your own eyes, not even a randomized, double-blinded clinical trial.
Whereas conventional screenings for wheat allergies or celiac disease consider intolerance exceedingly rare, an accumulating body of clinical research now links wheat consumption with over 200 health problems. Could this be why millions of American consumers are now expressing their wholesale rejection of this "king of grains"?
A radical new perspective on wheat's harmful properties has been proposed, which instead of looking at it as just a wholesome food that some people have problem consuming, perhaps it should be considered a pathogen with similar mechanisms of harm to viruses or bacteria.
Could there be a food-based cure for schizophrenia, bipolar, and depressive disorders? Could two of the most popular foods consumed in the West be a major cause?
How ironic it would be for the most celebrated food of Western culture -- wheat -- to be at the root of the global epidemic of depression?
As the autism epidemic continues to accelerate, one of the least well known contributing causes goes mostly unnoticed: wheat consumption.
The Australian government, in the form of its science research arm, is joining Agribusiness profiteering by designing a GM wheat that could kill people who eat it & be inherited by their children.
According to new research carried out by Testbiotech, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has already given non-regulated status to more than 20 plants genetically engineered with so-called genome editing techniques
Could bacteria and related microbes, widely believed to be a primary cause of disease, explain how we are capable of surviving through the self-created chemical nightmare of industrialized society?
A provocative new study confirms for the first time in a human trial that one of the adverse effects of wheat consumption includes a disruption of the levels of a hormone produced by the pituitary gland known as prolactin.
