Wheat Belly by William Davis
Recommended by Christine Cortese
Library Technician, Campo Branch
This book presents a new paradigm as it examines the role of “healthy whole grains” in the formation of modern degenerative disease. Could 2 slices of whole-wheat toast spike your blood sugar higher than a Snickers bar would? Is the increased gluten content of genetically modified wheat affecting your digestion and brain function? Could these “wholesome and nutritious” grains have public health consequences reflected in the rise of obesity, diabetes and dementia? Evidence is presented – read the book and decide for yourself. You’ll never look at your morning toast the same way again!
