That is what Dr. William Davis, a cardiologist, has labeled wheat. Wheat is the world’s most popular grain and Dr. Davis has also published a book on a healthy life without wheat and also it’s harmful side effects.

 

To avoid these wheat-oriented products, Davis suggests eating “real food,” such as avocados, olives, olive oil, meats, and vegetables. “(It’s) the stuff that is least likely to have been changed by agribusiness,”

 

It’s not the gluten he is worried about. The grain in current use was genetically modified in the 60’s and as Dr. Davis has pointed out there is a particular protein built into the genetic modification. It’s called gliadin. It is an opiate, however, and it binds to the opiate receptors in your brain. You may  be asking yourself “How does this affect me?” Good questions. Gliadin stimulates your appetite in a way that makes most people to consume upwards of up to 440 calories more per day annually.

 

The brighter side of  his findings, however, has to do with the recognition that more and more people have dropped wheat from their diets and have dropped a substantial amount of weight.
