Way before Wheat Belly and Grain Brain we had Dangerous Grains. I personally do not eat grains (no grain brain here) and I also understand how difficult it can be to avoid them. It is my belief that people should not be consuming grains of any kind. I hope this book can help you understand why.

Early farmers would also appreciate the sense of physical comfort caused by these grains. Paradoxically, they provide this comfort through our inability to fully digest some parts of the grain. Undigested partial proteins, or peptides, found in gluten cereals have morphine-like properties, becoming potent drugs once they enter the bloodstream. Those who are at greatest risk from these foods often experience something akin to addiction due to the pleasant feelings caused by these exorphins, suggesting an origin for the phrase "comfort Foods."
Science is in trouble whenever the will to believe overwhelms the duty to doubt.
