Is Wheat Modified in this Country?

It is a difficult and heated discussion today. The government says there are no GMO (Genetically Modified Organism) wheat in production today. This is to say, if it’s true, that biologists are not changing the internal DNA of a wheat plant. We know from this BLOG that you can alter the epigenetic’s of a plant and have a very different organism ob your hands while the DNA stayed the same. Dr. Davis (Wheat Belly) says he never claimed that we had GMO wheat but wheat that was hybridized to cross non wheat plants with wheat plants. This causes internal DNA to change drastically. Is this GOOD or BAD? Time will tell but Americans seem to be getting very fat on our wheat while Europeans are not. I believe we are hiding the real issues behind terminology. It really doesn’t matter if it is a GMO plant, a hybridized plant or epigenetically modified. If by any process the plant is changed, it van have a different effect on humans. Our government needs to stop arguing definitions and start protecting people from profits. In the mean time I only eat non wheat products or European wheat products such as pasta.

America is getting fatter each year. It’s happening to younger and younger people. It is a very sad situation because this leads to more illness, chronic disease and unhappiness in life.  It can be avoided if we ate correctly! The four evils in America are Fat, Sugar, Wheat and Salt. We do need some fat for our brains to operate properly. Eat good fat like Olive Oil and avocados and fish. Avoid completely fried foods which use bad fats and are loaded with calories. Avoid sweets. This seems hard to do for someone who is addicted. After 3 or 4 days the sugar addiction goes away and you wont have as strong a craving. If you give in and some sweets, the cravings will continue on and on. Wheat turns to sugar in the body and can spike your blood sugar levels. Fruits are OK since the sugars are contained in fiber which release them slowly in our bodies. They do nor spike the blood sugar levels. Avoid cereals completely except oatmeal! Cereal has added sugar, salt and wheat. They will spike your blood sugar levels. Finally salt. Salt comes in supper high levels in processed foods. Don’t eat them! Soups can have as much as a half a day’s salt levels in one portion! Make your own from scratch and control how much salt you add. It is not the salt shaker that hurts (unless you use it excessively) but the processed foods that come with hidden salt that we can’t even taste. Remember you are in control of your health, not your doctor and certainly not your government. Decide today to take control back.

Are We getting Fat so the Government can Grow More Wheat?

My good friend and ex business partner David sent me this article from CBS News. Dr. William Davis, a cardiologist, published a book called “perfect, chronic poison.” According to this book our government had US farmers switch their wheat crops to a new genetically engineered wheat back in the 60’s and 70’s. This new wheat produces more wheat per acre than the original natural wheat did. It also has a new protein, gliadin, that stimulates our brains to eat more. This protein may be making us fat. Dr Davis also says over 90% of the grains we eat are wheat. To avoid this eat more natural foods.
