​It's a multi-billion dollar battle for your belly. Millions of people are joining the anti-wheat revolution.

Kellogg's, the world's largest cereal maker, has seen its biggest drop in sales since the 1970s. Food companies are selling off their struggling bread divisions. It's all because best-selling health evangelists say that wheat is causing everything from fat bellies to schizophrenia. But do they have science on their side? Mark Kelley takes a hard look at what's driving a movement that is dramatically changing the way we eat.

When are we going to really realize everyone is very different and complex, with a sprinkle of the "unknown" that drives the controllers and conformers crazy.

why do you think Doctors call their business "'A PRACTICE"

"The Atkins Diet" is the Low Carb diet... Scientist and Doctors laughed at Dr. Atkins for 30 years, even though it worked.. Dr. Atkins wrote the Low Carb diet in the 1970's..

doc is partly correct. the poison they spray from the sky is what really makes us sick. since most wheat is grown outside,our food is going to be poisoned. we need to sto GEO ENGINEERING

Hm. It seems that there is no other choice but to eliminate one of the 2 sides of the "scientists/ doctors" for us and our next generation.

EVERYONE who has ever eaten wheat IS or WILL BE dead. Case closed.

Bye Saskatchewan, North Dakota, Kansas. You had a good run.

I get the detail that this documentary is a complete fraud! I listened very carefully but the monster word 'Glyphosate has not been mentioned! Reality is that some unconsious agriculturalists 'program' their harvest by using this insane agrochemical killer! Just like GMO canola it is later impossible to get uncontaminated grain, even if not everybody is so corrupt to use this 'prove of the reign of money'. I imagine that even the good Dr. William Davis is afraid to confront the true culprit of this war on human health!

In recent decades wheat has been genetically modified to be tolerant to "Round Up" herbicide. Since then everybody has started to become "gluten intolerant". Now people all over are discovering wheat is harmful... but it's because it's adulterated. Thanks Monsanto and those who knew and let it happen! Non-GMO wheat and bread and gluten is healthy for most everybody - if you can find it. It is indeed "frankenwheat". Same with corn. GMO per se isn't necessarily bad, but the glyphosate tolerant wheat and corn today is.

I haven't heard one word about glyphosate and roundup, and the law suit which was succeeded by showing that it is indeed carcinogenic, which is in gmo wheat!! I would think organic wheat would be ok, but i prefer not!

What a joke.
Wheat is in the bible, people have eaten wheat and breads for all of mans existance.
Guys like this, and people starting issues and finding targets such as foods, etc., to war against, make out to be an enemy, will continue.
People have troubles with the gluten in wheat and thats a whole other story, and who knows why all of a sudden this has become? It could be from many many things, even something they eat which reacts with the gluten, we just dont know, except that folks fet bad from the gluten in our modern wheat today, and it never was before.
So wheat is the enemy?
Not hardly.
All the allergies people have today simply were never here before with us.
There is way more we dont know, but wheat, butter, milk , and meat has been a staple of mans diets from the beginning.
People need tompray on this, for only the Lord knows the truth in it all and i believe somewhere mankind has done something along the way to cause all these maladies. But it isnt just the wheat, the milk, the butter, its something man has done to it or something else that people are exposed to or are eating such as chemicals, etc. i hope the truth becomes known.

I just found out that the tires on my car are gluten free ..... who knew!

the anti-wheat movement has got it wrong here. it is not wheat that's the cause of the diseases but the lack of water and fiber in your diet.
MJ mj
Don't care what scientists say. They're all bought buy big phrama and big argra. I know how I felt when I stopped eating gluten at around 50 years of age. It was a revelation! Before, i just thought eating made me sick. Ergo, something was wrong with me.

Interviewer: What = a healthy diet?
Fluoride pickled paddys

Maybe it is all nonsense. But why take the chance? Nobody needs wheat.
