ST. LOUIS (CBS St. Louis) — A top cardiologist believes that modern wheat is “perfect, chronic poison.”
Dr. William Davis, medical director for Track Your Plaque, said that today’s wheat was created by “genetic research” decades ago while speaking to CBS News.
“This thing has many new features nobody told you about, such as there’s a new protein in this thing called gliadin. It’s not gluten,” Davis explained. “This thing binds into the opiate receptors in your brain and in most people stimulates appetite, such that we consume 440 more calories per day, 365 days per year.”
Davis claims that people are beginning to cut wheat from their diet and seeing substantial weight loss from it.
“[W]e’re seeing hundreds of thousands of people losing 30, 80, 150 pounds. Diabetics become no longer diabetic; people with arthritis having dramatic relief,” Davis told CBS News. “People losing leg swelling, acid reflux, irritable bowel syndrome, depression, and on and on every day.”
On his Wheat Belly Blog, Davis compared today’s wheat as “a creation Al Qaeda couldn’t top.”
Davis suggests the people stick with vegetables and meats in their diet.
