Wheat is the least of American health issues. Besides, I love me some wheat beer, god help someone try to take my wheat beer away... I'll bring the entire country of Germany over to your house for an ass-whop'n!

I have European friends who say that when the go back to Europe

they eat the bread there and have no problems with it, no weight gain or a/g, and info from Weston Price Fdn. says there were Italian studies done that showed that true sour dough bread (fermented) did not cause problems even for people with celiac disease!

"Let it not be said that no one cared, that no one objected once it's realized that our liberties and wealth are in jeopardy." - Dr. Ronald Ernest Paul

I Think This Would Tie In To An AJ Theory

AJ always talks about eugenics.

Mark Sisson - Why Grains Are Unhealthy

Lectins are bad. They bind to insulin receptors, attack the stomach lining of insects, bind to human intestinal lining, and they seemingly cause leptin resistance. And leptin resistance predicts a “worsening of the features of the metabolic syndrome independently of obesity”. Fun stuff, huh?

Gluten might be even worse. Gluten, found in wheat, rye, and barley, is a composite of the proteins gliadin and glutenin. Around 1% of the population are celiacs, people who are completely and utterly intolerant of any gluten. In celiacs, any gluten in the diet can be disastrous. We’re talking compromised calcium and vitamin D3 levels, hyperparathyroidism, bone defects. Really terrible stuff. And it gets worse: just because you’re not celiac doesn’t mean you aren’t susceptible to the ravages of gluten. As Stephan highlights, one study showed that 29% of asymptomatic (read: not celiac) people nonetheless tested positive for anti-gliadin IgA in their stool. Anti-gliadin IgA is an antibody produced by the gut, and it remains there until it’s dispatched to ward off gliadin – a primary component of gluten. Basically, the only reason anti-gliadin IgA ends up in your stool is because your body sensed an impending threat – gluten. If gluten poses no threat, the anti-gliadin IgA stays in your gut. And to think, most Americans eat this stuff on a daily basis.

Phytates are a problem, too, because they make minerals bio-unavailable (so much for all those healthy vitamins and minerals we need from whole grains!), thus rendering null and void the last, remaining argument for cereal grain consumption.

What, then, is the point to all this grain madness? Is there a good reason for anyone (with access to meat, fruit, and vegetables, that is) to rely on cereal grains for a significant portion of their caloric intake?

The answer is unequivocally, undeniably no. We do not need grains to survive, let alone thrive. In fact, they are naturally selected to ward off pests, whether they be insects or hominids. I suggest we take the hint and stop eating them.

Individuality

I'm an individualist which is why I'm a libertarian, and why I believe that one man's meat is another man's poison.

So, when I read up on the blood type diet, and found that lectins vary from one another, and that different ones affect different immune systems differently (that is to say, that the immune system of blood type B attacks different lectins than those atacked by the immune system of blood type O or A), it made sense to me.

Did you know that all blood types have anti-bodies to pork lectins? Or that A's digest many grains better than O's? Tomatoes make blood thicker due to lectins? Saying lectins are bad is like saying natural substances are good: neither is a true statement. (Natural gas can explode, rattlesnake venom is troublesome, and too much water can kill one. I think snake venom may operate through lectins, as does the poison made from castor beans: ricin.)

eat to live

- Ideally avoid or at least minimize (to under 10% of your calories): all animal products (this includes fish, eggs, dairy).

- Avoid added salts

- Limit grains to one cup a day

- Eat at least a cup (or more) of beans/legumes a day

- Avoid refined sugars and processed foods of any sort

- Eat 50-60% of your calories from a combination of raw and lightly cooked non-starchy vegetables, with an emphasis on leafy greens

- Eat several whole fruits a day

- Avoid all refined oils (yes, this includes flax and olive oil, for example) and acquire your fats through whole foods such as small amounts of nuts and seeds and avocados.

Eat To Live

Everyone forgets the why the

Everyone forgets the why the GMO's are created. They are meant to be able to not only withstand drought, which they use to defend the crop use, but its also able to withstand Round-Up, which has a 2d-4 compound, used in the creation of agent orange. This herbicide is band in most of the world, and for a good reason. The plants absorb it, and then you eat it. This compounds have been proven, even in Monsanto's own studies, that they cause cancer. That's why applying them requires the same equipment as dealing with bio-hazard materials. The creation of the food itself is just part of the problem.

wheat

wheat

Despite the recent gluten-free trend, the wheat protein gluten is beneficial for most people. Less than 1% of people in the United States suffer from celiac disease, which requires the elimination of wheat from the diet. A recent study positively linked dairy, not wheat, to apthous ulcers.

The key to gaining healthful benefits from wheat products is by ensuring that they are not refined. Whole grains contain the most phytonutrients and fiber. Thus, whole wheat bread is superior to white.

-Dr. Michael Greger

There has got to be

There has got to be some that grow the old style wheat instead of the new stuff he's talking about. How can we find out who uses it or what products it's in, or where to get the old style wheat to make our own bread/pasta/etc.?

not really

You can eat "ancestoral" wheat like spelt which is closer in similarity to what our forefathers ate.

I am not a Christian but I do

I am not a Christian but I do believe parts of the bible are allegorical glimpses into the future by prophets of some sort or another.

In any case, if GMO’s are not the Pestilence that they speak of I don’t know what is.

We all share this eternally evolving present moment- The past and future only exist as inconsequential mental fabrications.

You are a GMO.

Humans got the idea for genetic modification by studying ourselves. Up to 8% of the human genome codes for endogenous retroviruses.

There is no reason to fear genetic modification any more than any other technology, as humans are utilizing an ubiquitous natural process to our advantage. Genetic modification is an advancement of ancient breeding techniques. Unfortunately sensational pseudoscience anti-GM fear-mongering is everywhere, just as it is with nuclear technology, antibiotics, cell phones, and pretty much any new innovation.

Genetic Modification is not

Genetic Modification is not anything like ancient or modern breeding techniques. Breeding techniques stay within the confines of the order of our natural world. If crops can interbreed then they are compatible enough to produce offspring. This is a far cry from GMO engineering which involves the use of a gene gun or retrovirus to splice unnatural genes into an organism. Our bodies are a delicate ecosystem of cells that have evolved with the natural world over our history. Such a dramatic and unnatural change in the gene expression of our food causes our own ecosystem to be thrown out of balance.

It amuses me how most of your list of "sensational pseudoscience fear mongering" contains things that are factually proven to be incredibly dangerous. I guess Chernobyl, Fukushima, and people dying in hospitals due to flesh eating, antibiotic resistant merca are all tin foil hat conspiracies then?

We all share this eternally evolving present moment- The past and future only exist as inconsequential mental fabrications.

A gene gun? Compatible enough for offspring?

What about seedless grapes? Those plants cannot reproduce. They have extra sets of chromosomes. Are they a dangerous abomination of nature?

You mentioned splicing "unnatural" genes? What is unnatural about them. Is a fish natural? Is a tomato natural? How is splicing a fish gene into tomatoes unnatural? What if I eat a tomato and a salmon in the exact same bite? It's the same proteins. Am I supposed to eat only one species of organism at once because of the baseless fears of natural health nuts?

By the way, humans are not a "delicate ecosystem." This is flowery, distracting, emotional language. This is typical liberal bullshit. It's not the jungle, it's a "delicate rainforest ecosystem."

Humans evolved to digest and metabolize whatever proteins, fats, and carbohydrates and chemicals you put into it. Genetic modification does not introduce any proteins that we already don't ingest. Genetic modification is not unnatural just because you declare it as such. Everything in the world is natural. Antibiotics are natural. Radtiation is natural. Genetic recombination is most certainly natural.

And LOL for talking about flesh-eating bacteria. Would you rather there be no antibiotics?

You have fallen victim to alarmist pseudoscience and political agendas.

Wow ! Where do you get your

Wow ! Where do you get your info from? Give me a break.............

First, Gene Guns are real and

First, Gene Guns are real and is one of the methods for creating Genetically altered organisms, go ahead and look it up. Seedless grapes are a grey area between natural breeding and true Genetic modification. A fish is natural and a tomato is natural because they are both whole genetic expressions that have evolved over time. A tomato that has had its gene expression ripped open in a laboratory and had a fish or bacteria gene sequence forced into it on the other hand is not natural.

It is not the same proteins, when you eat a fish and a tomato you get a whole fish protein and a whole tomato protein. If you Genetically alter a tomato with fish genes, you get synthetic amino acids and thus a synthetic protein built by an artificial genetic blueprint.

It is a scientific fact that the human body is actually made up of more microbes than human cells and all these different bacteria etc that live in our body work in harmony to keep us healthy which is actually an ecosystem the same way that a rainforest is an ecosystem. I am having a hard time following your logic on how this scientific fact relates to a political ideology, you are going to need please explain this further.

Humans have not evolved to put whatever chemical crap you put into it, that is why we have a obesity and cancer epidemic in this country. In case you have not noticed, 1 in 2 males will now get cancer in their lifetime.

There are effective natural alternatives to synthetic antibiotics that bacteria cannot develop a resistance to such as garlic and especially colloidal silver. The medical establishment does not want you to know this because as of yet they cannot patent it and use it to make money. They also use gov. regulatory agencies such as the FDA to maintain this monopoly on our health which is Fascism and goes against the principals of freedom and self-determination that we are fighting for on this site.

We all share this eternally evolving present moment- The past and future only exist as inconsequential mental fabrications.

Sounds like

you've made up your own definition of what is or isn't "natural."

So your argument is that the proteins are not the same?

Please explain to me how a protein transcribed in a salmon is different from a protein transcribed by the same genes in a plant. There is no difference between an identical "artificial" and identical "natural" chemical.

Saying "there are effective natural alternatives" is a perfect example of the appealing to nature logical fallacy.

Patents are irrelevant to this discussion. You are changing the subject. If garlic and colloidal silver was found to be effective and profitable they would take advantage of it. Why wouldn't they?

There is no conspiracy by the medical establishment. This is such a frustratingly childish accusation, and alternative medicine advocates say it over and over again. Every freaking snake oil salesman says "THE MEDICAL ESTABLISHMENT DOESN'T WANT YOU TO KNOW." How convenient.

This is how genetics work:

This is how genetics work: The genetic code acts as a blueprint for the part of your cells that create amino acids which then create proteins.

The blueprint of a natural genetic code creates a certain amino acid which is the building blocks of natural proteins.

The altered blueprint of a GMO code creates a different amino acid that then creates a currupted protein.

When you body digests these proteins, the currupted proteins and amino acids are incorporated into your cells and can interfere with your cell division. While the exact mechanics behind this are still being studied, a Russian study that fed mice GMO corn resulted in the mice growing horrific tumors and multiple organ damage.

Patents are are completely relevant to this discussion as current laws state that natural organisms cannot be patented. On the other hand, synthetic chemicals and GMO organisms can be patented. Patents mean that the company has exclusive rights on the chemical for a certain number of years and reap a huge profit in the meantime. This is why Cannabis is illegal but the patented synthetic pharmaceutical version is.

You answered your own question. Collidial silver is effective but not PROFITABLE as anyone can buy a machine and make it themselves.

There is absoutely a conspiracy in the FDA and big pharma corporations. Even Ron Paul has spoken on the subject. (http://digitaljournal.com/article/322761)

Yes, there is plenty of snake oil in both the gov. sanctioned pharmaceutical realm as well as natural treatments. The point I am making is that I would rather make my own decisions about my health than to have a currupt gov. entity make them for me.

We all share this eternally evolving present moment- The past and future only exist as inconsequential mental fabrications.

Psst

Don't feed the trolls. ;-)

Resist the temptation to feed the trolls.

You started off right. Then you bombed horribly.

This is how genetics work: The genetic code acts as a blueprint for the part of your cells that create amino acids which then create proteins.

Okay, good start.

"The blueprint of a natural genetic code creates a certain amino acid which is the building blocks of natural proteins."

This is more or less correct. The word natural is pointless here.

The altered blueprint of a GMO code creates a different amino acid that then creates a currupted protein.

This is pure conjecture. The GMO code is not altered, is not transcribing different amino acids, and is not translating to different proteins. Scientists have remarkable control over the order of the codons. You are basing your accusation on nothing. Where did you hear this? NaturalNews?

When you body digests these proteins, the currupted proteins and amino acids are incorporated into your cells and can interfere with your cell division. While the exact mechanics behind this are still being studied, a Russian study that fed mice GMO corn resulted in the mice growing horrific tumors and multiple organ damage.

This is a bunch of horseshit. This is based on an unpublished article. The alternative media, like they always do, took a minimum amount of information and exploded with it. If 99% of a paper concretely defends GMO safety, but 1 line says something that somewhat aligns with the natural fairy tale, the alternative media blasts and spams it everywhere, over and over again. 100 articles supporting GMOs mean nothing as long as 1 article is favorable to the cause. Scientific evidence is the enemy of natural health advocates, unless of course it somewhat supports the fallacious premise, then it becomes the most important and most perfect research ever conducted. Any scientific evidence that opposes the natural premise of course is disregarded and ignored, because everyone who doesn't agree with them is part of a conspiracy!!

And you managed to drag in Ron Paul, too! Just because Ron Paul, THE MAINSTREAM MEDICINE PHYSICIAN, criticized corporatism between Big Pharma and the FDA, does not mean he supports the anti-GMO crowd or alternative medicine.

Politics does not nullify science. Just because the FDA supports GM technology does not mean it is a giant, harmful conspiracy, and just because alternative medicine advocates oppose the FDA does not mean they are right about the natural fallacy.

I don't agree with patents or the FDA, so don't play the righteous victim. I don't agree with the monopoly NASA has on space travel, but that doesn't mean their decades of research and accomplishments were all false conspiracy.

The point is that the science

The point is that the science isn't there. It's possible for it to be, but it's not. You can look at it two ways. One way is the scientists having no clue what changing one gene will do, and they just let the product into production, and another is that they indeed know what they are doing and are purposely making poison. The same applies to vaccines. They could work, but they're just designed to kill. Anyway, GMO is a huge environmental hazard. If people want GMO they should grow them indoors and prevent them from spreading and overtaking natural crops. Food should be labeled as GMO. We want back our old crops. If you want GMO food, fine. There will always be some mad scientists growing it for you.

Please come join my forum if you're not a trendy and agree with my points of view.

So only you have propety rights? I do not?

You can grow YOUR crops outside but I have to grow mine indoors?

Here's a thought scenario...Is your shitty brown pest infected "natural" cannabis going to contaminate my genetically modified, scientifically masterful cannabis crop?

By the way, I'm rather be a mad scientist any day than an alarmist chemophobe.

No one engineers weed, they

No one engineers weed, they hybrid it. And yes, if your product is some unnatural abomination and threatens to overtake natural crops, you should not be allowed to grow it outdoors. You don't have the right to pollute.

Please come join my forum if you're not a trendy and agree with my points of view.

How adding raw hemp seed and removing starches works well

There is a raw, shelled, hemp seed product out of Canada called, "Hemp Hearts", that has helped thousands of folks break their dependance on starches like wheat, and thrive to where they never looked back except to remember how bad they used to feel before.

Here is a link to the home page where the man who invented the shelling machinery tells of his amazing transformation, where he starts out:
"After thirty years of supplying myself with sufficient ordinary food (mostly starches) to be able to work sixteen hour days farming, as well as building and installing machines for local food processing plants - I was a fifty year old wreck. I had high blood pressure, high blood sugar, chronic prostate inflammation, several digestive disorders, extensive arthritic pain and I caught many contagious diseases every year."

After adding sufficient amounts of Hemp Hearts, AND removing starches from his diet, he reported: "I lost another fifty pounds and was amazed to notice that all of my typical late onset health problems had totally disappeared. That change was over ten years ago. None of my typical late onset health problems have since returned. I can easily work eighteen hour days; I never experience any illness."
http://www.hemphearts.com/HempHeartsHistory.htm

The website includes over 200 pages of health surveys that report similarly amazing stories from all kinds of folks. http://www.hemphearts.com/Comments/

My local Costco started carrying it in 28oz. bags, so if yours doesn't, put in a request. I hate to support the big box, but some folks won't try something unless they have easy access and a good enough price, eh?
