Is wheat really THAT bad?

Because it has become such a frequent item in everyday meals, suggesting that something so commonplace must be fine, people often ask: Is wheat really that bad? Let’s therefore catalog the health conditions that are associated with wheat consumption. Health conditions we know with 100% certainty are caused by consumption of wheat and related grains: Celiac disease, dermatitis herpetiformis, cerebellar ataxia, “idiopathic” peripheral neuropathy, temporal lobe seizures, gluten encephalopathy, type 1 diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, autoimmune hepatitis, autoimmune pancreatitis, tooth decay Health conditions worsened by consumption of wheat and related grains: Many if not most autoimmune conditions, type 2 diabetes, overweight/obesity, cataracts, fatty liver, hypertriglyceridemia, hypertension, Alzheimer’s dementia, irritable bowel syndrome, migraine headaches, osteoarthritis, eczema, eating disorders, asthma, eosinophilic esophagitis, autoimmune gastritis, small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, microscopic colitis, polycystic ovary syndrome, infertility, multiple miscarriages, reflux esophagitis, esophageal spasm, Barrett’s esophagus Health conditions suspected to be caused or worsened by wheat and related grains: Plantar fasciitis, calcium oxalate kidney stones, IgA nephropathy, gallstones, intestinal fungal overgrowth, gastrointestinal cancers, chronic sinusitis, autoimmune hemolytic anemia, male gynecoma...

Publication date: May 2020Source: Clinica Chimica Acta, Volume 504Author(s): Damian Jacenik, Jakub FichnaAbstractChemerin is a multifunctional protein involved among others in adipogenesis, angiogenesis and lipid as well as glucose metabolism. Chemerin is an essential factor in promotion of chemotaxis of numerous immune cell types and plays an important role in several pathophysiologic conditions. Chemerin receptors are present on monocytes/macrophages, T cells, natural killer and dendritic cells as well as neutrophils. However, the role of chemerin and chemerin receptors in immune response and gastrointestinal diseases is...

ConclusionsPatients with CMS were more likely to present with increased comorbidities. Patients with CMS undergoing CABG were at risk for worse short ‐term secondary postoperative outcomes and reduced long‐term survival. The data supports the need for further investigation for risk reduction surrounding operative revascularization.

The levels of HMF and F in Chinese vinegars from different regions were analyzed and discussed. F ranged from 4.35 to 313.95 mg/L, with an average value of 136.71 mg/L, while the mean level of HMF was 103.69 mg/L (26.83–455.13 mg/L). A significant positive corr...

The objective of the present study was to develop a method for labeling lamb meat and goat milk by selective enrichment of terbium and thulium in the feed for the animals. Therefore, a distinctive rare earth element (REE) pattern is artificially introduced which can be determined in food products. Detection of REE labels was carried out using inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) after acid digestion. Alternatively, laser ablation ICP-MS (LA-ICP-MS) was applied, allowing direct analysis of bone samples and analysis of meat and milk samples after dry ashing and pressing pellets.After three weeks of administe...

Furthermore, leptin plays a major role in other proteinopathies such as cancer, marked hyperphagia, impaired immune function, and inflammation. Despite its biological relevance in human health, there are no NMR resonance assignments of the human pr...
