Hey all. I've just come across this fantastic video via Good Food Revolution (I get their emails) and I really think you should watch it. Dr. William Davis is a Cardiologist and he found so many benefits from eliminating wheat, or 'modern wheat' from our diets, and in the video he breaks down why it's unhealthy (including rise in obesity and Type II Diabetes since the 80's, etc). He explains what happens to our bodies and brains with the consumption of wheat, it's Glycemic Index effects and where it rates (and what raises your blood sugar more!). Thought of you, Bix :)
It's just short of 15 min, but an educational read. Enjoy!
