Avoid wheat? Wheat Belly by William Davis, MD

November 9, 2011 - 1:38pm -- ppschaffer

Wheat Belly by William Davis, MD, published this year strongly condemns modern wheats: Dr Davis writes that wheats have been so extensively hybridized and genetically modified that they no longer remotely resembles ancient (healthful) wheats. Therefore, he says, avoid modern wheats, organic or not, like the plague...  I'm not a food scientist but, frankly, I am surprised by his assertions.  Any comments by food scientists or other knowledgeable individuals?
