Despite 'healthy whole grains' being marketed to us, there is really no such wheat or grain that provides us enough benefits to overshadow its negatives. Wheat and grains should be broken up with immediately. If you're wondering why, take a peek at the top things wheat and grains do to damage your health: 1. Grains make you gain weight, there is no doubt about it. Gliadin derived opiates found in all grains cause an increase in weight gain by making you hungry. 2. These gliadin derived opiates trigger behavioural problems in people with ADHD, autism and schizophrenia. These compounds have even been shown to aggravate the symptoms of bulimia and other eating disorders. 3. Gliadin, in it's full form, has been linked to type 1 diabetes, multiple sclerosis, psoriasis and rheumatoid arthritis because it causes autoimmunity. 4. Wheat germ agglutinin is a bowel toxin that causes digestive issues. 5. Agglutinin shuts down pancreatic functions. breakupbread 6. Amylopectin A can raise blood sugar higher than consuming table sugar can. This can put you at risk of developing high blood sugar. 7. Phytates stop your body from absorbing vital nutrients like iron and zinc. 8. Allergens are found in wheat and grains which can trigger asthma, skin rashes and digestive upsets. 9. High rates of grain consumption has been linked to polycystic ovarian syndrome. Wheat and grain causes skyrocketing levels of estrogen in women and men, along with drops in testosterone. This causes inflammation which turns into disease and sometimes activates gynecomastia (the growth of female breasts in men). 10. The food industry wants you to keep purchasing bread and grain products even though they know the health concerns. That is why they market them as 'healthy options'. Do you know any more harmful effects of bread? If you would like to learn more, and begin stripping your diet of these addictive and dangerous products - check out The BodyRock Meal Plan.
