Why should you avoid grains, this includes wheat!
The main reason is simple. What little nutritional value that can be found in today’s wheat can be found in abundance in real paleo ingredients that do not have the unhealthy side effects.
Additionally, a vast majority of farms today have mutant seeds that are grown in synthetic soil that has been bathed in chemicals. They’re deconstructed and pulverized in to fine dust, bleached and chemically treated to create a barren industrial filler. Yuck.
Dr. William Davis, author of Wheat Belly, explains, “this thing being sold to us called wheat—it ain’t wheat.
It’s this stocky little high-yield plant, a distant relative of the wheat our mothers used to bake muffins, genetically and biochemically light-years removed from the wheat of just 40 years ago.”
Dr. Joseph A. Murray, a gastroenterologist at Mayo Clinic, agrees with Davis about the transformation of modern wheat, stating, “Many of the processed foods we eat were not in existence 50 years ago.”
The second big reason is provided by archaeologists who have observed and documented a decrease in body size associated with the advent of maize agriculture.
They cite such evidence as an apparent increase in the number of radio-opaque lines seen in the skeletons, diminished thickness of compact bone, and markings on the skulls that may suggest iron-deficiency or diminished availability of vitamin C.
There are also well-documented growth deficiencies, including protein-energy malnutrition, that stem from single-crop agriculture.
We are aware of many problems of growth and reproduction that arise from the phytic acid in wheat and other grains, reducing the availability of iron and zinc.
