Doctor Claims All Wheat – Even Whole-Grain and Organic – Now Contains An Opiate Which Causes Obesity

Doctor Advises We Avoid All Food Which Has Been Changed by Agribusiness

Cardiologist William Davis tells CBS News that modern wheat is nothing like our grandparents ate.

It’s an 18-inch tall plant created by genetic research in the ’60s and ’70s.

***

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. I’m not addressing people with gluten sensitivities and celiac disease. I’m talking about everybody else because everybody else is susceptible to the gliadin protein that is an opiate. 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 is not talking about genetically engineered foods, which are drawing criticism in their own right (for good reason).   The modern type of wheat Davis is warning against was created by crude methods which pre-date genetic engineering.

Davis recommends that people replace wheat with “real food,” such as avocados, olives, olive oil, meats, and vegetables, as this is “the stuff that is least likely to have been changed by agribusiness.”

    Ahhh, corporate capitalistic americanism at its best. When will we the people realize that we the people are equal to any natural resource in the eyes of the religion of capitalism. We the people are not protected from harvest. We the people are a wealth of self replenishing bounty.

    Now I need some water to wash down my cynicism, a nice bottle of imported water.

    The protein in milk is supposed to be metabolically transformed into another chemical which is analogous to opiates in its effects. No surprises, think of how natural it would be for mother’s milk to sooth babies in that way!

    Our culture is so warped that it is hard to comprehend!

    The single best plant for people for food is cannabis.

    That has a long history of also being psychoactive!

    At some point, things are so insane and utterly out of control evil, that I have developed a macabre sense of humour to cope with that. I LOVE milk and wheat … but, at least, I KNOW that they have drug effects! Nobody lives forever. At least ENJOY your indulgences, when engaged in them! Know thy self, and know thy enemy, is the oldest best advice. However, I would say that when one knows enough, then it becomes clear that one’s self is one’s greatest enemy! Life is such a package deal.

    The problem is that none of this is actually true, even though I’d like to believe it.

    Davis has been hawking this theory for a couple of years but I ‘m
    sceptical for a number of reasons. There are certainly an increasing
    number of people who are obese and unwell, but this is more easily
    traced back to the introduction of HFC into the American diet which
    correlates, in time, with its beginning. Our modern forms of wheat
    derive from a variety that was introduced in the early 20th century, so
    it’s a bit of a stretch to believe it took 100 years to negatively
    impact our health.

    Davis is claiming gliadin is a NEW protein
    but the fact is that it was present in the very first wheat, einkorn, in
    quantities greater than today’s wheat:

    “The gluten of the einkorn accession had a gliadin to glutenin ratio of 2:1 compared to 0.8:1…” http://www.hort.purdue.edu/newcrop/proceedings1996/v3-156.html

    As
    for the opioids in wheat, which are NOT the gliadins, there are opioid
    receptor ligands being discovered in many of the foods we eat and have
    been eating for millennia:

    “Most of these food-derived opioid
    receptor ligands are fragments of the milk proteins alpha-, beta- or
    kappa-casein, alpha-lactalbumin, beta-lactoglobulin or lactotransferrin;
    however, also wheat gluten, rice albumin, bovine serum albumin or
    hemoglobin, i.e. possible constituents of meat, and even a protein from
    spinach could be demonstrated to contain fragments behaving like opioid
    receptor ligands. Practically all of these compounds display opioid
    agonist activity…”

    Initially, Davis’ thesis struck me as simply the latest fad diet/food
    demonization (remember eggs & butter?) but the more mainstream
    publicity Davis gets, the more this seems like a psyop. Is he secretly
    working for the corn industry to counter all the bad publicity over
    HFC? Working for biotech to draw attention away from GMOs? Who knows,
    but I do know he’s got his scientific facts wrong and it could simply be
    that his ego has got away from his reason. It wouldn’t be the first
    time…

      Actually, here’s a breakdown of the issues surrounding grains, including wheat: http://www.michaelmorning.com/2012/09/are-grains-really-healthy-part-1/

      HFCS is nowhere near as bad as the issue with grains, particularly since it’s been codified into “healthy eating” by the U.S. government.

      Bovine growth hormones aka Steriods are also a strongly suspected factor in obesity.
      Before they added steroids to beef the girls in elementary schools never grew breasts.
      Now girls are showing breasts in 5th grade and the kids have grown 3 inches taller on average in one generation.

    i am unable to agree with it and i dont agree with the idea. there is some thing missing or some other interest!

        good writing. In 2012 u have supported saturated fat. Very nice.
        Wheat of Asia is totallydifferent from that one that is available in the West. Less harmful insecticides are used here I should think. Wheat of the West must be totally inimical to good health ofpeople and is responsible for most of the diseases that come thru gluten constipation in the intestines.

    Most successful diet I was ever on forbade any bread or other white stuff for the first 6 weeks and then only allowed ezekial bread.
