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
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.
If you have ever wondered why you should not eat wheat, this article is for you!
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.
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.
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?
Monsanto’s talk of ‘technology’ tries to hide its real objectives of control over seed through genetic engineering
Could two of the Western world's most popular foods - wheat and cow's dairy - be depleting you of your antioxidants and altering your DNA expression in a harmful way?
A new study indicates that wheat consumption may contribute to a rare but serious liver disease in children.
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?
Wheat could be driving more than your digestive system crazy
In this article a key question is brought to the forefront, namely, is eating wheat and gluten free enough to obtain optimal health? The mass market has done quite a good job of accommodating the gluten & wheat free movement by providing an increasingly wide number of good tasting and relatively nutritious "whole grain" products. But are whole grains like rice, or other substitute flours like potato, really good for us?
Here we present you with the evidence of the universal harm of gluten.
There is something that every cancer patient should hear from their oncologist when they are first diagnosed. They should be told that by making certain dietary changes, they could increase their chances of healing from cancer dramatically, no matter what course of treatment they pursue.
Are grains toxic for everyone? Is gluten-free enough to protect your health?
Children with autism have a peculiar digestive system disorder, as was recently eloquently described by Dr. Arthur Krigsman at the AutismOne conference. How might glyphosate (Roundup) cause this?
Here are four specific things that you can start addressing today to significantly lower your risk for breast cancer.
Could gluten's toxicity extend to the nervous system, producing symptoms identical to classical Parkinson's disease? A compelling case study adds to a growing body of research indicating that wheat's neurotoxicity is greatly underestimated.
Did you know that most calcium supplements on the market are basically limestone? Yes, that's chalk. Conceal it within a capsule, a slickly glazed tablet, or in the form of a silky smooth liquid, and it is magically transformed into a "calcium supplement": easy to swallow, “good for the bones" and a very profitable commodity for both the dietary supplement and mining industries. After all, a sizable portion of the Earth's crust is composed of the stuff.
Sayer Ji, the author of "The Dark Side of Wheat," discusses the emerging viewpoint that wheat represents a human species-specific intolerance that should be universally avoided.
Dill is chock-full of nutrients and compounds that are widely used for reducing excess gas, aiding in digestion and boosting the immune system. But the perks don't end there: dill also provides strong antibiotic properties
As the autism epidemic continues to accelerate, one of the least well known contributing causes goes mostly unnoticed: wheat consumption.
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?
The "diseases of affluence," as they are known, include diabetes, heart disease, arthritis, osteoporosis and cancer, and are sometimes referred to as the "Western disease" paradigm. They emerge largely in response to the type of overnourishment that occurs in relatively wealthy societies, and particularly the overconsumption of certain biologically incompatible foods that have become the nutritional centerpiece of agrarian and largely grain-based cultures.
