    Very informative and enlightening

    This is a must read for anyone who is struggling with many different health issues and have not found success. So many people do not realize how harmful wheat and wheat gluten is to the human body. Our bodies were not made for wheat and people put way too much of it in their system because they are brainwashed into thinking that it is so healthy.

    A must read for anyone dealing with nutrition education

    This book was recommended to me by a fellow RD. It took me a while to order it, but once I received it I could not put it down. Very informative. Gives clarity to all the labs, tests, etc. surrounding gluten intolerance of any kind. I would highly recommend this book to anyone involved in nutrition education.

    You'll be amazed at the many health issues related to gluten intolerance!

    Even cancers can be related to gluten intolerance! - colon cancer, melanoma, & non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. Many, MANY common ailments can be related to gluten sensitivity/intolerance. If you or someone you know has ADHD, arthritis, early menopause, headaches, canker sores, cystic fibrosis, fibromyalgia, hypothyroidism, type I Diabetes, and so many more things affected by gluten intolerance, you will want to read this book to understand how gluten works! This book lists other resources and has a vast bibliography. NOTE: The author does not distinguish between lactose intolerance and intolerance to the proteins casein and whey in dairy products that I have learned about in other books such as The Gluten Connection or The Gluten Effect. They are different issues but Wangen only mentions lactose intolerance. Casein and whey can be cross-reactive if you are gluten intolerant. PLEASE SPREAD THE AWARENESS ABOUT GLUTEN INTOLERANCE. GLUTEN-FREE EATING CAN HELP SOOOOO MANY PEOPLE.

    There's wheat among the chaff.

    There is a camp of contra-information people in the country, most of whom are nutritionists, that are pushing a "grain is bad for you" agenda. This book attempts to make the suggestion that humans were never meant to eat grasses - which is absurd. Once you get over that, the book then delves into some fairly interesting information about how diet can affect behavior, and how allergic reactions to wheat gluten can be the cause of some fairly scary afflictions. This book - unlike many of its ilk - actually provides a good bibliography of peer reviewed material which puts this one high above the rest. Read with a ton of salt and some useful information can be gleaned.
