How Gluten and Modern Food Processing Contribute to Poor Health

Wheat And How It Ravages Your Gut

More and more, we are learning about the effect of wheat on our health.  Dr. Mercola's articles and videos are of great help in giving us information about the various factors.

  • Gluten is a protein made up of glutenin and gliadin molecules, which in the presence of water form an elastic bond. Gluten is found primarily in wheat, rye and barley, but other grains may contain it as well
  • For those with celiac disease, a severe gastrointestinal reaction to gluten, a gluten-free diet is vital. But many have some level of gluten intolerance or sensitivity, and fare better on a gluten-free diet as well
  • Besides gluten, other factors contributing to the rise in gluten intolerance and similar symptoms include wheat hybridization for higher gluten content, other wheat components, the milling or baking process and glyphosate contamination
