Children with autism have a peculiar digestive system disorder, as was recently eloquently described by Dr. Arthur Krigsman at the AutismOne conference. How might glyphosate (Roundup) cause this?
Of all the illnesses in industrial society, diabetes takes the greatest toll. Over 100,000 people die from complications of diabetes each year. Another million lose quality of life due to metabolic syndrome. Diabetes adds $135 billion to the annual cost of healthcare in the U.S.1 Yet diabetes remains avoidable, treatable, and reversible.
One quarter of our global food supply contains a hidden hormone-disrupting danger that can cause serious acute, as well as chronic adverse health effects. A recent study on young girls in New Jersey found detectable concentrations in the urine of 2/3rds of the population sampled.
Two of the Western world's most popular foods have been implicated in immune mediated brain damage.
Does the consumption of gluten-containing grains contribute to psychiatric disorders such as schizophrenia?
Research indicates that the consumption of wheat contributes to the growth of pathogenic bacteria in our gut
We know that wheat harms the gut, which has been called "the second brain." So is it all that surprising to learn that it could have nerve and brain-damaging properties?
Monsanto’s talk of ‘technology’ tries to hide its real objectives of control over seed through genetic engineering
Gluten-free foods seem to be popping up everywhere. Is this just another diet fad?
Just five years ago, asking your server for gluten-free choices would get you the proverbial blank stare. Today it's more likely to elicit a menu page of choices. Family chains, some fast-food outlets, even ball park vendors, now include gluten-free options. Why are millions of Americans suddenly eschewing wheat?
Are grains toxic for everyone? Is gluten-free enough to protect your health?
Some legal analysts and health writers initially wondered if the FDA's proposed guidelines would mean that homeopathic medicines may become "illegal"
Could bacteria and related microbes, widely believed to be a primary cause of disease, explain how we are capable of surviving through the self-created chemical nightmare of industrialized society?
Could there be a food-based cure for schizophrenia, bipolar, and depressive disorders? Could two of the most popular foods consumed in the West be a major cause?
Wheat could be driving more than your digestive system crazy.
While wheat is well known to wreak havoc on the gastrointestinal health of genetically susceptible folks, such as those with celiac disease, and more recently, irritable bowel syndrome, new research published in the journal Psychiatry Research indicates that sensitivity to one of the components in wheat known as gliadin could be driving some into states of acute mania.
Ancient Roman soldiers were punished either with decimation or deprivation of their wheat rations. What does this tell us about the addictive power of wheat?
Current research indicates a clear relationship between a mother's sensitivity to gluten and the mental health of her child.
Despite popular misconceptions gluten is only the tip of a very large iceberg. There are actually 23,788 distinct proteins that have been identified in wheat, any one of which could incite a negative immune reaction in the body.
There is a growing awareness that glyphosate is much more toxic than we have been led to believe, and I am confident that in time it will be banned worldwide, just like DDT
A radical new perspective on wheat's harmful properties has been proposed, which instead of looking at it as just a wholesome food that some people have problem consuming, perhaps it should be considered a pathogen with similar mechanisms of harm to viruses or bacteria.
The mainstream media is now declaring 'gluten sensitivity' is an imagined condition -- this in spite of millions worldwide adopting a gluten and wheat free diet. What's going on?
According to new research carried out by Testbiotech, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has already given non-regulated status to more than 20 plants genetically engineered with so-called genome editing techniques
A new study indicates that wheat consumption may contribute to a rare but serious liver disease in children.
Could common complaints of bloating, abdominal tenderness and indigestion following a meal, and even the increasingly prevalent complaint lazily labeled 'irritable bowel syndrome' by conventional medicine, be worsened -- even caused -- by consuming wheat?
In this article a key question is brought to the forefront, namely, is eating wheat and gluten free enough to obtain optimal health? The mass market has done quite a good job of accommodating the gluten & wheat free movement by providing an increasingly wide number of good tasting and relatively nutritious "whole grain" products. But are whole grains like rice, or other substitute flours like potato, really good for us?
