“Is today’s wheat making you gain weight” today Dr. William Davis, M.D. on Dr. Oz

Dr. William Davis (author of Wheat Belly) was on Dr. Oz today talking about how today’s wheat is poisonous because it’s been genetically modified (and Davis refers it as “frankenwheat”).  Davis states that “modern wheat is a highly addictive complex carbohydrate that has a special protein called gliatin which has the same effect on the brain receptors as opium.  Gliatin stimulates the appetite, creating incessant hunger and cravings for more wheat products and refined carbs” (and usually an additional 400 or so calories are added a day because of these cravings and to add those calories up over a year).  He also discussed how merely adding gluten-free replacements is not the answer but rather add real unprocessed foods.
