Discussing the challenges and misunderstandings about what makes for a healthy glutenfree lifestyle with the example of a grain-free Paleolithic diet.
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.

Monosodium glutamate (MSG) is a commonly used "flavor enhancer," and so powerfully so that (arguably) you could spray it on roadkill and it would taste good. This omnipresent ingredient in modern mass market food takes advantage of our biologically hard-wired taste receptors, and makes it very hard to stop eating the foods "seasoned" with this ingredient.
Does the consumption of gluten-containing grains contribute to psychiatric disorders such as schizophrenia?
One quarter of our global food supply contains a hidden hormone-disrupting danger that can cause serious acute, as well as chronic adverse health effects. A recent study on young girls in New Jersey found detectable concentrations in the urine of 2/3rds of the population sampled.

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?
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?
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.
Here we present you with the evidence of the universal harm of gluten.
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?
The mainstream media is now declaring 'gluten sensitivity' is an imagined condition -- this in spite of millions worldwide adopting a gluten and wheat free diet. What's going on?
Grains are often called the "staff of life," having a sort of credibility that is biblical in proportion. So prevalent is the perception that grains make for "good food" that the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) - which is the United Nation's international agency for defeating hunger - uses a head of wheat as its emblem, with the Latin Fiat Panis or "Let There Be Bread" as its motto

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.
