So you’ve convinced yourself that civilization took a wrong turn 10 thousand years ago when it stopped hunting & gathering and invented agriculture… You could be right. Giving up wheat is almost certainly going to help your digestion and possibly your health. But ‘gluten-free’ dieting doesn’t mean that you should immediately head to the gluten-free aisle of your local supermarket and stock up on rice crackers or wheat-free Triscuits.
Because when manufacturers take out wheat and replace it with a pile of processed crap, your intestines aren’t going to be much happier and your overall health won’t necessarily improve. In fact, if you stick to the same processed foods that got you into this poor state of health, you’ll almost certainly fail in your attempts to feel better. And you’ll still be fat.
If you’re still unsure, just grab nearest box of gluten-free snacks sitting in your cupboard: Let’s see, you’ve got corn syrup, corn starch, hydrogenated soybean oil… Remember, corn is the oldest genetically modified crop on the planet!
Respected scientific studies have already shown that replacing saturated fats with safflower oil increases the likelihood of cardiac arrest, what do you think a few years worth of gluten-free cinnamon Chex cereal are going to do to you?
