Cracker Bowel: Why Grains are Toxic to the Human Gastrointestinal Tract

We are told to eat “healthy whole grains” to boost fiber intake, maintain bowel regularity and intestinal health–but the exact OPPOSITE is true. Wheat and grains, especially modern wheat and grains, contain an entire collection of bowel toxins. Banish wheat and grains from your diet and you are on the path to recovering gastrointestinal health and freedom from dozens of common gastrointestinal conditions. Transcript: Hi everybody, Doctor William Davis here. I call this video “cracker bowel”, because wheat and grains are a collection of very potent bowel toxins. You know, it’s ironic isn’t it, that we’re told that we need to eat wheat and grains; need to include them at every meal; because they’re so good for bowel health; because of bran or fiber content, for instance. Well, that’s true. You can get more cellulose fiber, like sawdust, by eating grains, but this idea that grains are necessary for bowel health is complete nonsense. In fact, the opposite is true. Wheat and grains, particularly modern wheat and grains, are a collection of very toxic compounds to your gastrointestinal tract. For instance, the gliadin protein within gluten, besides triggering celiac disease, also directly damages the intestinal lining. That’s because, recall that we cannot break down, we can’t digest, the proteins in grains, because we don’t have the enzymes to do that. If you eat an egg, or a piece of bacon, or a hambu...

Resident and inflammatory mononuclear phagocytes (MPhs) with functional plasticity in the intestine are critically involved in the pathology of inflammatory bowel diseases (IBDs), the mechanism of which remains incompletely understood. In the present study, we found that increased expression of the E3 ligase F-box and WD repeat domain–containing 7 (FBXW) in the inflamed intestine was significantly correlated with IBD severity in both human diseases and in mouse models. Myeloid Fbxw7 deficiency protected mice from colitis induced by dextran sodium sulfate (DSS) or 2,6,4-trinitrobenzene sulfonic acid (TNBS). Fbxw7 defi...

Ghrelin is a key signal driving energy seeking and storage in order to reverse energy deficit. In line with this view, the metabolic status of an organism predicts sensitivity to ghrelin, with fasting increasing and obesity decreasing ghrelin sensitivity, respectively. However, the mechanism responsible for controlling this sensitivity is unknown. In this issue of the JCI, Mani and colleagues show that plasma levels of plasma liver-enriched antimicrobial peptide-2 (LEAP2), a recently identified hormone that antagonizes the ghrelin receptor, are inversely correlated with those of plasma acyl-ghrelin under conditions of both...

For that purpose solid-liquid, ultrasound-assisted and microwave-assisted extraction (MAE) techniques were applied. MAEs were performed at different levels of ethanol concentrations, extraction time, liq...

Conclusion: The observed differences refer to: the number of food groups that enter the composition of components and factors; the size of the smaller loads in the PAF and the order of the alimentary patterns, especially those derived from loads of a smaller magnitude. However, these differences do not seem to impact the interpretability of dietary patterns in this population.

Conclusion: Considering that inadequacy of dietary fiber was very high, the whole 60-year-old or older population must be targeted for nutritional intervention in order to ensure adequate intake of this nutrient.

Groups of rats were orally administered with cardamom oil, cardamom resin, and standard compounds of the volatile cardamom oil fraction as a single dose. Paw inflammation was measured at hourly intervals for 6 hour post-carrageenan administration (i.p.). In another set, groups of rats were ma...

AbstractAplastic anemia (AA) has been reported to be associated with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), but mostly with ulcerative colitis (UC). Little is known about the associations between AA and Crohn ’s disease (CD). We aim to determine the portraits of patients with AA-CD. Among a total of 657 patients with CD registered in Xijing Hospital of Digestive Diseases IBD center from January 2008 to October 2018, the patients diagnosed with concurrent AA were reviewed. Clinical presentation, medical history, endoscopic features, response to treatment, and prognosis in this set of patients were collected. Six male patie...

(Reuters Health) - Seniors may be more likely than younger adults to choke on vitamins and dietary supplements, or to have other problems swallowing them, especially when the pills are on the larger side, a new study suggests.
