How can a ‘staple food’ be making us sick?

I’ll never forget the first time my brother-in-law (a Bakery owner) learnt that I had coeliac disease (and thus couldn’t eat his wheat-based breads etc). He literally rolled his eyes and made jokes about it being the ‘new fad diet’.

What he didn’t understand, is that coeliac disease is a medically diagnosed autoimmune disease – I hadn’t jumped on a bandwagon to get attention … in fact, 17 years ago when I was finally diagnosed, after years and years of being sick, I had never heard of gluten or coeliac disease. It wasn’t until a concerned friend urged me to get tested because I was constantly sick, that I learnt about gluten.

Several years later, he was asking my advice on gluten free bread for his Bakery, because he was constantly being asked for it.

Why had the inquiries increased? Was it due to ‘fad diets’ or was it due to the ever-increasing number of people being diagnosed with an autoimmune condition that requires a wheat free diet?

Have you wondered the same thing?

Why are we reacting so much to this staple food? Well, scientists and health specialists the world over are asking the same question and they have come together in the ‘What’s with Wheat?” documentary (details below) to explore the question … ‘Why have we become so wheat intolerant?’

MORE ABOUT THE FILM

More and more people are diagnosed with coeliac and non-coeliac gluten sensitivity than ever before! You have to ask the question, WHY?

Have you ever wondered why as a nation and a worldwide population we are struggling so much with our health?

A new Australian made documentary, “What’s with Wheat” spills the beans on the devastating effect wheat is having on our nation’s health.

Could our modern wheat production and the amount of wheat we consume daily be contributing to the global health crisis?

These are the questions explored in a new feature-length documentary “What’s with Wheat?”.

Dr David Perlmutter says that “NO part of the human body is immune from the effects of gluten.” It’s possible that modern wheat just may affect every single system in our entire body.

Wheat and wheat containing products have become a component of almost every single packaged food and even our beauty products, plus they could be having a devastating effect on the health of yourself and your family.

“What’s with Wheat?” answers how differently our wheat crops are now grown and processed, what’s added to the wheat, the reason why it’s so addictive which is leading people to consume more than they used to and why wheat is now added to other foods and cosmetics.

What’s with Wheat features 15 global experts from Australia, United States, England, America, New Zealand and India.
