When I was first diagnosed with Celiac Disease in 2004, I did a lot of reading. As rare as it was at the time there was already a lot of research and information to wade through. The more I read about the correlation of gluten to different disease processes I became convinced that it was poison, not just to those with CD but to everyone. I tried to tell people what I believed as I pointed to all the information available on the subject. I told people that the genetic modifications to wheat had turned it to poison and that there just weren’t any tests available that would detect it in everyone. I just sounded crazy.
Last month a friend of mine sent me a message about a book he had read. He said that “the book included a lot of science regarding the genetic modifications to wheat and its relation to multiple health issues. Oh, and it was written by a cardiologist so he had some credibility.” This made me laugh. If only I had a medical degree!!!
Well, I read the book. I felt incredibly validated as he described system by system the negative impact of modern wheat on the human body. It’s addictive and toxic, and there isn’t a system in your body it doesn’t harm. It’s also in nearly every processed food on the market.
I started telling everyone I know about this book. After all, this doctor has some credibility!!! I have quickly found that credibility only really counts when someone is already interested. I practically begged my mother to read the book. I relayed with excitement the amount of scientific explanation the author uses. My mother explained to me, politely, that while I enjoy reading technical manuals she isn’t all that interested – could I please synopsize the subject matter for her?
I suppose that I can. While I’m working on this book report for my mother I really want to pass this information along to the rest of you. If you are interested at all in being healthy and whole – this book has some really good information. Unfortunately it’s being marketed as another gimicky sounding weight loss plan . I’d have passed it over if it weren’t for the message from my friend. Look past the fact that it’s riding the coat tails of the low carb craze. The information deserves your attention.
