This is an amazing book especially for those people who are gluten intolerant. A valuable source of knowledge and a must read, shows how gluten can be a key factor in the development of neurological conditions, cancer, cardiovascular diseases and other ailments. What a surprise when I realised that wheat makes the body ache, you suffer from fatigue and generally out of sorts for prolonged periods of time. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED A MUST READ
I have just finished reading “Toxic Staple” and I am stunned by how many conditions and ailments the author, Anne Sarkisian has connected to gluten sensitivity. She confesses right up front, that her talents and interests have always been with the arts. But, for her, family comes first and when several members of her immediate family had unexplained ailments, she whipped into action. After exhaustively reading and researching what could be wrong, Anne came to the conclusion that she and her family suffered from gluten sensitivity. Cause and effect was now a given because once her family committed to going on a gluten free diet (GFD), their multiple ailments cleared up. Realizing that she had found the holy grail, Anne was now on a mission. After attending multiple conferences, meeting many questioning people like herself and tracking down all kinds of research, she realized that it was time to put what she had learned down on paper. Thus, “Toxic Staple” was written with all of the passion and commitment of a true believer. One of the strengths of the book is that the medical claims are derived from myriads of research documented at the end of the book. The author’s use of technical medical terms, makes this book valuable reading for the medical profession, a target audience since medical education rarely touches on the correlation between nutrition and health. Having said that, Anne Sarkisian gives enough clear explanations that the lay person never feels overwhelmed. Before even reading the book, I was impressed by the intriguing cover design, the catchy chapter titles and the impressive foreword by Cynthia Rudert, MD FACP; obviously, some leaders in the medical field are beginning to take heed. I found the many testimonials interspersed throughout the book quite compelling because they perfectly illustrated the particular point of the chapter. There are more and more gluten free food choices in the marketplace right now because of people like Anne Sarkisian who know that taking charge of one’s own health is an imperative. If more people read “Toxic Staple,” this grassroots movement will become the new paradigm.
