There is now, however, a huge dataset firmly establishing the likelihood that wheat intolerance, or better yet, wheat toxicity, is a universal, human species-specific problem, occurring only in differing degrees, and mostly sub-clinically, at least through the optic of conventional screenings and technologies.

One must also account for the "invisible thorn," which is wheat lectin – known more technically as Wheat Germ Agglutinin (WGA) -- and which can cause a broad range of adverse health effects, even while being undetected through conventional screenings.

I can't believe that humans have been consuming something harmful for so many generations. Personally, I think the problems are the result of what we are doing to wheat (and ALL our food), with genetic modification and chemicals. It is time to return to eating *real* food.

Great post. Most folks really do not fully comprehend how a 6 billion dollar a year "gluten free" industry reflects just how profound an experience of healing and recovery the gluten-free diet invokes. But, this article shows there are hundreds of studies now confirming the broad-spectrum toxicity of wheat, much of which is subclinical or not diagnosable through conventional screening.

Humans haven't eaten wheat the way that we have for more than about 2 generations. Wheat was cost-prohibitive until governments started subsidizing it and we began to process food to make it cheaper.

What do you mean by 'the way we have'? What about 200-500 years ago? What did people eat? I was taught that the poor ate whole grains, while the rich ate white grains, but they all ate grains. Is. What about the ancient Egyptians? Kamut was discovered in a pyramid, or so I read.

Also, which two generations? Mine is one. My parents? What about their parents?
