Don't really know how to approach this. Didn't get beyond the first one. Talking about GMO'S. A reality and horror show in the making in the US.

BeWellWorld.com "ABC's of GMO'S genetically modified need-to-knows. Give it a read if you like. Then plant your garden. It's still early enough to get a good crop.

well reading before commenting would be a good start, both the article and review are very well documented and scientifically supported

Yes and I bet scientifically supported by members of Monsanto. I totally and completely disagree with both points 1 and 2. I am not an advocate of the book mentioned, but i've done years of research, reading, watching documentaries, going to meetings, discussing and learning of GMO'D products and it is extremely frightening what the world is coming to. If 29 countries have banned Monsanto's seeds and chemicals how can you say this is a myth? The US is going to kill the world without using a single bullet by promoting and standing by Monsanto.

in the 60's Thelidamide was deemed 'safe' by scientific studies, yet 10,000 babies were born with severe birth defects and many died. Scientific studies are controlled by governments and $$$. The FDA is made up of ex Monsanto executives , some who have okayed their own studies.

read up and educate yourselves, eat organic, grass fed and natural products from your own areas.
Wheat , corn and soy are the 3 major cash crops that are GMO'd and we need to be aware of what we put in our bodies, not only for weight loss but for health.

Thank you Mummydee. Sadly, there are those who refuse to believe the control these companies have over the people and the government. And like you said and as stated in the article I posted, there are countries around the world who have banned these practices. But not the US... lobbyists have too much pull and power. And we are the ones paying for it.

before starting your holy wars on GMO, try to read the articles for a change without stopping at the first paragraph and then even feeling compelled to leave silly comments about it.
99% of it is not about GMO anyway so please try not to go off topic and hijack it.If you want to talk about GMO feel free to start your own thread where you can wage your holy wars against Monsanto America and all the devils you feel like fighting, this is not about it.

Who said i stopped at the first paragraph? i just addressed the first points(which i believe to be complete b's.) but i read both articles right thru.
I don't believe i was off topic, the whole topic is about wheat and the latest fad in dieting based on the book "the wheat belly diet" which i'm not a fan of.
I eliminated wheat from my diet years ago based on the GMO'd wheat that is in production and sold here in the Americas even though they want you to believe it's not. I eat Kamut and Spelt if and when I eat grains.
I do like that the second post has taken the time to debunk most of what was in the book but what one person puts down as proof, another will come along and debunk that.
I'm sorry that you think my comments are 'silly'. or off topic.... so what was your 'topic'???

I believe he's referring to me. I myself admitted to not getting beyond the 1st point.

I have since taken the time to read it and see the relevance to wheat.

Have you read my article on GMO'S. I know someone who worked in those "laboratories" and the horror stories he told me 25 years ago are now coming to light and destroying us.

I kept an open mind and read your article. Read mine with an open mind.

When you make a post regarding Wheat, you can't put all the above information as not on the topic! I have been following this for years and am sickened by what the GMO'ing of food sources is doing to this world.
Information in the Diet book is just as sceptical as the Thesis that goes against it... many points i question and just hope that everyone does their own homework and makes sensible choices.

Absolutely. We've been kept in the dark too long and it's time to know what's hurting us, our children and grandchildren.

So for all those who did jump on the ,Gluton Free bandwagon whether because of the book or not, here's another interesting article.
Just like when they came out with "low fat" but had too add more sugar to make it taste good... Then they took out sugar and called it sugar free, but something had to sweeten it so we got those wonderful synthetic mind poisoning chemicals. Oh but its sugar free!!
