Wheat Makes You Fat In Three Ways
I know we love our bread, but did you know….
There are three major hidden reasons that wheat products, not just gluten is a major contributor to obesity, diabetes, heart disease, cancer, dementia, depression and so many other modern ills.
Today’s wheat products is made from a scientifically engineered food product developed in the last 50 years. It is different in three important ways that all drive obesity and more.
- It contains a Super Starch — amylopectin A that is super fattening. (It fluffs up Bread and Cinnabons).
- It contains a form of Super Gluten that is super-inflammatory. Gluten is a protein found in wheat, barley, rye, spelt and oats.
- It contains forms of a Super Drug that is super-addictive and makes you crave and eat more.
- Bottom line: wheat is an addictive appetite stimulant.
A major study in the Journal of the American Medical Association reported that hidden gluten sensitivity (elevated antibodies without full-blown celiac disease) was shown to increase risk of death by 35 to 75 percent, mostly by causing heart disease and cancer.
How Eating gluten causes inflammation, heart disease, obesity, diabetes and cancer.
- Most of the increased risk occurs when gluten triggers inflammation that damages the gut lining.
- Then all the bugs and partially-digested food particles inside your intestine get across the gut barrier and are exposed your immune system.
- Your immune system starts attacking these foreign proteins, leading to systemic inflammation that then causes heart disease, dementia, cancer, diabetes and more.
As always, I am interested in your thoughts on the topics I blog. Please send me your comments. Is there any topic that I can research for you? Please let me know.

Health Canada trans fat ban takes effect next year.

Switching from a diet high in these polyunsaturated and refined vegetable oils (partially hydrogenated oils are Trans Fats) to one with raw or at least minimally processed medium chain fatty acids (MCT) can thus reduce our risk of cancer, heart disease, and various other diseases associated with these dangerous refined oil products.

Where do I find these medium chain fatty acids (MCT)?
Rich sources for commercial extraction of beneficial MCTs include palm kernel oil and coconut oil. Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Medium-chain_triglyceride
I use coconut oil for heating up foods and baking.
When buying it please look for 100% pure coconut oil that is cold-pressed to ensure the highest integrity and quality. Some suppliers mix it with vegetable oil to reduce the cost. Their label may or may not say, “partially hydrogenated”, which is Trans Fat.
Since I do not know if the products in the store are 100% pure, I’ll stay with Silkeny. It rich and creamy and tastes fantastic right out of the bottle. http://www.silkeny.com/our-products/
The best way to predict your future (health) is to create it (with healthy foods today).
Food is medicine. “Doctors need to know about the impact evidence-based lifestyle interventions such as diet can have on chronic conditions. The healing power of diet has been underplayed and, unlike drugs, doesn’t have side-effects. If it was a pill, any company that manufactured it would make billions because the effect is so good.”

Metabolic syndrome is becoming more common due to a rise in obesity rates among adults. In the future, metabolic syndrome may overtake smoking as the leading risk factor for heart disease.
As we are getting older we are at risk of developing heart disease.
Metabolic syndrome is the name for a group of risk factors that raises your risk for heart disease and other health problems, such as diabetes and stroke.
The term “metabolic” refers to the biochemical processes involved in the body’s normal functioning. Risk factors are traits, conditions, or habits that increase your chance of developing a disease.
In this article, “heart disease” refers to coronary heart disease (CHD). CHD is a condition in which a waxy substance called plaque builds up inside the coronary (heart) arteries.
Plaque hardens and narrows the arteries, reducing blood flow to your heart muscle. This can lead to chest pain, a heart attack, heart damage, or even death.
WHAT YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT
Metabolic Effects of the Very-Low-Carbohydrate Diets: Misunderstood “Villains” of Human Metabolism
During very low carbohydrate intake, the regulated and controlled production of ketone bodies causes a harmless physiological state known as dietary ketosis. Ketone bodies flow from the liver to extra-hepatic tissues (e.g., brain) for use as a fuel; this spares glucose metabolism via a mechanism similar to the sparing of glucose by oxidation of fatty acids as an alternative fuel. In comparison with glucose, the ketone bodies are actually a very good respiratory fuel.
Indeed, there is no clear requirement for dietary carbohydrates for human adults.
Interestingly, the effects of ketone body metabolism suggest that mild ketosis may offer therapeutic potential in a variety of different common and rare disease states. Also, the recent landmark study showed that a very-low-carbohydrate diet resulted in a significant reduction in fat mass and a concomitant increase in lean body mass in normal-weight men. Contrary to popular belief, insulin is not needed for glucose uptake and utilization in man. Finally, both muscle fat and carbohydrate burn in an amino acid flame.

Dr. Dwight Lundell is the past Chief of Staff and Chief of Surgery at Banner Heart Hospital , Mesa , AZ. His private practice, Cardiac Care Center was in Mesa, AZ. Recently Dr. Lundell left surgery to focus on the nutritional treatment of heart disease. He is the founder of Healthy Humans Foundation that promotes human health with a focus on helping large corporations promote wellness. He is also the author of The Cure for Heart Disease and The Great Cholesterol Lie.
As a heart surgeon with 25 years experience, having performed over 5,000 open-heart surgeries, today is my day to right the wrong with medical and scientific fact. I trained for many years with other prominent physicians labelled “opinion makers.” Bombarded with scientific literature, continually attending education seminars, we opinion makers insisted heart disease resulted from the simple fact of elevated blood cholesterol. The only accepted therapy was prescribing medications to lower cholesterol and a diet that severely restricted fat intake. The latter of course we insisted would lower cholesterol and heart disease.
Deviations from these recommendations were considered heresy and could quite possibly result in malpractice.
