Wheat Belly – And new FDA Rule about “Gluten Free”

Wheat Cheaper than Heroin


LISTEN (1 hour)

Last week, the FDA issued new rules regarding what it means to offer a food that’s “gluten free.”  Their new ruling requires that these products contain fewer than 20 parts per million of gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley, rye and related grains.  The FDA reports that this new definition is needed to help the growing number of Americans suffering from celiac disease — Estimates for people who suffer from this gluten allergy range from one and a half million to over 25 million.  According to Dr. William Davis, author of the book Wheat Belly, the numbers of people with grain insensitivities may be even higher.  Here’s a conversation with Dr. William Davis, which broadcast on KGNU Boulder/Denver earlier this month and includes a call-in segment.  Monday, Dr. Davis launches his national tour of Wheat:  The Unhealthy Whole Grain, and it’s starting in Denver.

    Great interview, thanks. No “e” in heroin, though.
