Dr. William Davis Explains Wheat Belly

"I'm not promoting drugs, fancy medical procedures, or costly equipment. I’m not promoting a process that makes a pharmaceutical company rich or helps a hospital gain more revenue-producing procedures.

I'm talking about a simple change in diet that yields incredible and unexpected health benefits in so many more ways than you’d think.

And it's not just about celiac disease, the destructive intestinal disease from wheat gluten that affects one percent of the population. It's about all the other destructive health effects of wheat consumption, from arthritis to acid reflux to schizophrenia, caused or made worse by this food we are advised to eat more of.

It's about being set free from the peculiar appetite-stimulating effects of the opiate-like compounds unique to wheat. It’s also about losing weight - ten, twenty or thirty pounds is often just the start, from this thing I call wheat belly.

The key to understanding wheat's undesirable effects is to recognize that the total effect on human health is greater than the sum of its parts." - Dr. William Davis, M.D.
