Dr. Hyman warns that this new “Frankenfood” has three important ways to drive obesity, diabetes, heart disease, cancer, dementia, and more:
It contains the Super Starch amylopectin A that is super fattening.
It contains a form of Super Gluten that is super-inflammatory.
It contains forms of a Super Drug that is super addictive and makes you crave and eat more.
The author of the best-selling book “Wheat Belly, Dr. William Davis, told CBS News that modern wheat is a “perfect, chronic poison.” He says the wheat we eat today isn’t the wheat our grandmothers had. “It’s an 18-inch tall plant created by genetic research in the ’60s and ’70s. This thing has many new features nobody told you about, such as there’s a new protein in this thing called gliadin. It’s not gluten. I’m not addressing people with gluten sensitivities and celiac disease. I’m talking about everybody else. This thing binds into the opiate receptors in your brain and in most people stimulates appetite such that we consume 440 more calories, 365 days per year.”
