But Grandma...

...I would really rather not eat my bread.

"Modern wheat is nothing like the grain your mother or grandmother consumed. Today, wheat barely resembles its original form, thanks to extensive genetic manipulations of the 1960s and '70s to increase yields. 'You cannot change the basic characteristics of a plant without changing its genetics, biochemistry, and its effects on humans who consume it,' Dr. Davis notes. 

In his book, Dr. Davis makes the case that modern-day wheat is triggering all sorts of health problems, everything from digestive diseases like celiac and inflammatory bowel disease to acid reflux, obesity, asthma, and skin disorders. 'If there is a food that yields extravagant, extraordinary, and unexpected benefits when avoided, it is bread,' says Dr. Davis. 'And I don't mean white bread; I mean all bread: white, whole wheat, whole grain, sprouted, organic, French, Italian, fresh, day-old...all of it.'"
