Three Hidden Ways Wheat Makes You Fat
by Dr. Mark Hyman, MD
Gluten-free is hot these days. There are books and websites,
restaurants with gluten free menus, and grocery stores with hundreds
of new gluten free food products on the shelf. Is this a fad,
or a reflection of response to a real problem?
Yes, gluten is a real problem. But the problem is not just gluten.
In fact, there are three major hidden reasons that wheat products,
not just gluten (along with sugar in all its forms) is the major
contributor to obesity, diabetes, heart disease, cancer, dementia,
depression and so many other modern ills.
This is why there are now 30% more obese than undernourished
in the world, and why globally chronic lifestyle and dietary driven
disease kills more than twice as many people as infectious disease.
These non-communicable chronic diseases will cost our global economy
$47 trillion over the next 20 years.
