[Suspicious that wheat is farmed to such intensity when there are better grains to eat. Interesting story in the book Buried my Heart at Wounded Knee about how one tribe was forced or persuaded to chop down their peach groves and plant wheat. Wheat also doesn't contain B17, one important factor in cancer, unlike Millet which used to be our staple diet.]

[2012 Oct] GM Wheat May Damage Human Genetics Permanently
The Dark Side of Wheat PDF includes two hard-hitting essays that
represent a seachange in the way wheat intolerance is comprehended; no longer a
rare, strictly genetically-based disease, wheat is revealed to be a
species-specific intolerance, whose role in health and disease has been greatly
misunderstood since ancient times. The downloadable document also includes a
90-page quick reference guide containing hyperlinks to research on the National
Library of Medicine on over 120 diseases that have been linked to wheat
consumption. The Dark Side of Wheat has changed many minds about the exalted
status of wheat among secular and sacred institutions alike.
As Dr. Ron Hoggan, co-author of "Dangerous Grains" puts it in the foreword: "Sir Isaac Newton's famous metaphor (perhaps quoting others) said something to the effect that we see further, not because of any special endowment of our own, but because we are standing on the shoulders of giants. After reading Sayer's work on wheat, I felt as if I had just been boosted to a higher plane from which I could see and understand much, much more. Sayer's insights continue to shape and inform much of my effort to understand the various impacts of grains on human health."

"Another topic of great interest is what Ettissh discusses about wheat. There is a substance in wheat which causes hardening of the arteries and they promote wheat based products for this reason. Thirdly our soils lack trace elements which further reduce are intellect, this is deliberate."-- The Body Snatchers by Susan Reed BSC
Where we, the USDA nutritionists, called for a base of 5-9
servings of fresh fruits and vegetables a day, it was
replaced with a paltry 2-3 servings (changed to 5-7 servings a
couple of years later because an anti-cancer campaign by another
government agency, the National Cancer Institute,
forced the USDA to adopt the higher standard). Our
recommendation of 3-4 daily servings of whole-grain breads and cereals was
changed to a whopping 6-11 servings forming the base
of the Food Pyramid as a concession to the processed
wheat and corn industries. Moreover, my nutritionist group had placed baked
goods made with white flour — including crackers, sweets and other
low-nutrient foods laden with sugars and fats — at the
peak of the pyramid, recommending that they be eaten
sparingly. To our alarm, in the “revised” Food Guide, they were now made part of
the Pyramid’s base. And, in yet one more assault on dietary logic,
changes were made to the wording of the dietary
guidelines from “eat less” to “avoid too much,” giving a nod to
the processed-food industry interests by not limiting highly
profitable “fun foods” (junk foods by any other name)
that might affect the bottom line of food companies.
But even this neutralized wording of the revised Guidelines created a firestorm of angry responses from the food industry and their Congressional allies who believed that the “farmers’ department” (USDA) should not be telling the public to eat less of anything, including saturated fat and cholesterol, meat, eggs and sugar.
I vehemently protested that the changes, if followed, could lead to an epidemic of obesity and diabetes — and couldn’t be justified on either health or nutritional grounds. To my amazement, I was a lone voice on this issue, as my colleagues appeared to accept the “policy level” decision. Over my objections, the Food Guide Pyramid was finalized, although it only saw the light of day 12 years later, in 1992. Yet it appears my warning has come to pass. A Fatally Flawed Food Guide by Luise Light, Ed.D
The true pyramid that Luise and her team developed....... not have starch as the foundation. Instead, it called for a base of a wide
variety of fruits and vegetables, with 5 to 9 servings daily. Whole grain
cereals and grains were recommended in amounts of 2 to 4 servings daily - with
the smaller amount for females and those with less active lifestyles. The real
pyramid that Luise and her team created placed baked goods, crackers, sweets and
other low-nutrient foods up with the sugars and fats at the top of the pyramid,
where they were recommended only as occasional treats.
"But what happened?" Luise wrote, stating that there had been a deliberate, unexplained switch made at the political level that completely distorted the pyramid ...... "Instead of fruits and vegetables making up the base of the diet," she wrote, "the cereals and wheat products were made the base of the pyramid, and the recommendation [for starchy foods] was no longer 2 to 4 as we had determined but switched 6 to 11 servings! We couldn't believe it! What possible rationale could there be for such an unprecedented and unjustified switch? In fact the health consequences of encouraging the public to eat so much refined grain, which the body processes like sugar, was frightening! But our exhortations to the political heads of the agency fell on deaf ears. The new food guide, replacing the 'Basic Four,' would be a promotional tool to get the public to buy and consume more calories, sugar and starch." Ultimately, this would result in a poorer quality diet.
What was given to the public in the 1980s was a pyramid with a foundation based (in more ways than one) on dough. And the American people - with full and innocent trust in the health advice given to them by the government - then attempted to follow the new health-based plan. The result would be profit and gain for some, and the torments of ill health and weight gain for countless others.  Fluoride -The Battle of Darkness & Light by Mary Sparrowdancer
This spot on left arm (just above wrist) was a nasty blue colour and weeping---what hospitals cut out on a daily basis. Dried up and went back to mild red colour (and now slowly going away) after giving up heavy wheat bread addiction. Probably on a meridian. Also pain on bottom of left foot, intestine area in kinesiology.
