Stop Demonizing Food!

Dr. Mercola wrote an article about *Wheat* that bothers me.  Though there maybe a correlation between consumption of wheat and poor health; there are a few things that need to be taken into account.  First, when we use correlational findings to find causation we run the risk of missing out on the whole story; and in this case several variables aren't being acknowledged.  One HUGE variable that people don't seem to acknowledge is that most Americans have a damaged gut and simply CANNOT digest wheat because of that.  Another issue that I was discussing with two other women the other day is that wheat is no longer what it used to be.  There was even GMO wheat found in Oregon and no one knows where it came from! 

We need to stop demonizing food!  Wheat; REAL (organic) whole wheat is food.  It IS possible that real wheat no longer exist in America; I can accept that.  To say, however, that wheat is bad news or bad for the health is simply not true.  Some of us need to heal before consuming it and some may never be able to consume it, but that doesn't make it bad.
