I suggest anyone who eats wheat in any form read "Wheat Belly" by William Davis, MD.
Essentially he says wheat increases our blood sugar levels more than any other food including table sugar, and we suffer numerous serious health consequences as a result. He also says wheat physically acts as a drug that makes us want to eat more, and his view is that the low fat, "healthy whole grain" craze is a sham.
He advocates a low carb diet including meat, cheese, nuts, some fruit, and low carb vegetables.
"Bend over and grab your ankles" should be etched in stone at the entrance to every government building and every government office.
