Default On the evils of wheat

He mentions other issues like high fructose sweeteners as I recall.

There are other issues such as pesticide and other persistent organic
pollutants that are contributing, IMO.

He does mention vitamin D a fair bit which has been a hobby horse
of my own in the past.

Interesting that he mentions einkorn. *I only know about that species of
grain because it was found in the stomach contents of "Otsi the Iceman"
the ancient frozen mummy that was discovered in the Apls in the 1990s.

Einkorn is now obscure but was actively cultivated millennia ago. *It's

not be harmful to wheat intolerant folks. *I've tried spelt and kamut

Personally I can eat them all without intolerance. But I get fat
and they spike the blood glucose and that includes all rices
white and whole grain, millet, etc.

Grains are animal food around my house. And even for
the animals, I've been using more legumes. Which is
something I need to do more research to get a handle
as to whether this is a move towards a better diet.
Understand my intake is rather limited.

For the celiac folk, gluten often has ruined their health by

This can run in families so if you have a cousin or sib with
ailment watch out.
