The Real Reason Wheat is Toxic (It’s Not the Gluten)

“There is clearly something going on with wheat that is not well known by the general public. It goes far and beyond organic versus nonorganic, gluten or hybridization because even conventional wheat triggers no symptoms for some who eat wheat in other parts of the world.”

I was feeling crappy every time I ate wheat, so last year I decided to minimize how much of it I was consuming. I gave up any wheat for breakfast or lunch. Once a week I would allow myself a burger. I felt so much better within a couple of weeks that I have not gone back to my old regimen. I now have yogurt with fruit for breakfast and our own veggies, eggs or beef for lunch. For dinner, we usually have hearty soups I make from our own local products – either stuff I grow myself or that’s grown nearby.

I’ve spent waaay too much time trying to pinpoint my own problem with wheat. I’m not celiac and I have no proof that my problem is gluten-based. No matter what, though, this article throws a whole lot of gas on the fire. The practice it talks about is common in Alberta where I live. Read it and weep.
