I think a lot of the problems with wheat and gluten can be linked to the amount of gmo wheat we eat and the limited selection of wheat we get. There are so many different varieties of wheat and we get maybe two. When I first started at the Co-op, there was not anywhere near the amount of people with celiac and gluten intolerance coming into our store, now it is probably every third or fourth customer.
Also, who knows what is happening to our systems when we eat “round-up ready” gmo wheat. I don’t want to eat anything that has been sprayed with roundup 4 or 5 times before it is added to my food!
Most of the other grains tend to be less popular therefore less likely to be gmo or sprayed like crazy with chemicals. I think besides diabetes, we are going to be looking at an epidemic of auto-immune disorders in the next twenty years. And guess what folks, they dont’ eat this stuff in Europe, brand name food is the U.S. does but in Europe, those same brands have substituted out the gmo’s because the consumers demanded it. Just something to think about.
