NATURAL HEALTH: Can modern wheat be the culprit of your sickness?
Are you wondering why so many people are becoming sensitive to wheat? Isn’t it supposed to be healthy, especially if you are eating whole grain? I’m sorry to say, most individuals would benefit if they completely avoided wheat — even if you don’t have Celiac’s disease.
Wheat is not what it once was. It has now been so genetically altered your body does not recognize it. It has been altered in order to feed the masses (people, cows, chicken, farm raised fish, etc.), grow faster, and be resistant to insects and drought. This causes the body to react defensively, which results in the form of inflammation. If you were living in Italy, for example, you may not be affected, as they have banned the altering or genetic modification of their food. Good for them I say. I wish we were that smart, for we’d be far less sick.

Tasting Italy: Mediterranean wines and foods flavored the night at Dick and Jenny's
Ryan Seward still remembers the chilly day he toured a small vineyard in the Piedmont region of Italy.
The young man leading the tour, Luca Roagna, was a fourth generation wine maker who knew the exact date every vine in the field had been planted. So enthusiastic about his product, he reached down and grabbed some of the dirt and asked those in the group to smell it. Later, he led his guests through a sampling of wines in a century old cave where giant oak barrels held the family’s revered and carefully created grape elixer.
