The 12 bad foods you should avoid.
Wheat contains the protein gluten which is, for most people, very difficult for the stomach to break down. Most people have weak stomach acid to begin with which compounds this situation as the gluten ends up passing through the stomach and into the intestines in an undigested state.
Like wheat, barley will in most people, pass into the intestines as one long chain protein. Instead of breaking down into individual amino acids in the stomach so they can be absorbed, the gluten protein arrives in this undigested state and can cause damage to the microscopic villi lining the intestinal wall. These villi are like hundreds of fingers creating a much larger surface area of absorption in the intestines.
Much like an elephant in your lounge room, the long chain undigested gluten protein found in whole grains flattens everything in its path and thereby massively reduces the surface area of digestion. The more whole grains you eat, the less able your body is to absorb nutrients due to the much reduced surface area of absorption.
Because all chronic diseases are directly related to nutrient deficiencies, the more whole grains you eat in foods such as wheat, barley, rye and oats the more likely you are to suffer with a chronic disease.
Corn and soy are among the most genetically modified foods. They are also abundantly sprayed with a chemical called Roundup or Glyphosate. The World Health Organization classifies Roundup as a carcinogen, a cancer causing agent.
If you can source your corn from a certified organic grower you will avoid this issue.
The consumption of genetically modified soy and corn has been linked with 4 different types of cancer and death from high blood pressure, and deaths from stroke.
