Update: Wheat Belly safe flours and meals

  So you kiss all things wheat and grains goodbye. And you’ve come to learn that gluten-free foods made with replacement flours like cornstarch, tapioca starch, potato flour, and rice starch are incredibly unhealthy, since they make visceral fat grow, send blood sugar through the roof, and contribute to diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, cancer, and dementia. But perhaps you’d sure like a few muffins or cookies once in a while . . . without paying the health price that follows wheat and grain consumption such as high blood sugar, insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes, autoimmune conditions, acid reflux, and increased potential for dementia. What “flours”–-non-wheat and without gluten-free junk carbohydrates–-are truly safe and provide reasonable baking characteristics? Here’s my list, the flours I use in my recipes: Almond meal—Also called just “ground almonds,” the meal ground from whole almonds is versatile and yields a great texture, though heavier than that from conventional flours. Shop around, as prices vary widely. Where I live (Milwaukee, Wisconsin), I can pay anywhere from $4 to $18.99 per pound from local grocery stores. Almond flour—Almond flour refers to flour ground from blanched almonds that may or may not have had the excess oil pressed from it. This yields a finer flour but minus much of the fiber. It is also more costly. I therefore reserve the use of almond flour for dishes where a lig...

This multistep process involves the migration of cancer cells to anatomically distant organs. Metastasis formation relies on cancer cell dissemination and survival in the circulatory system, as well as adaptation to the new tissue notably through genetic and/or epigenetic alterations. A large number of proteins are clear...

Integrins are the key regulators of critical biological functions and contribute significantly to the promotion of cancer at almost every stage of disease progr...

This paradoxical effect of chemotherapy can affect different districts such as the primary tumor, the circulation and distant organs by s...

In this study, human serum albumin (HSA) complexed with 5BMF (5BMF@HSA) has been developed to further improve its solubility (from 1.61 to 5.41 mg/mL), and the fluorescent intensity of 5BMF@HSA was improved over 2 times. Nearly 10-fold 5BMF was released from 5BMF@HSA complex in acidic condition when compared with neutral/basic environment. Intracellular distribution of 5BMF was altered by HSA as its signals were observed in lysosomes where free 5BMF barely localized. Both 5BMF@HSA and 5BMF showed selective toxicity toward tumor cells in μM and nM range and effectively inhibited tumor growth in mice model. In summar...

However, the conditions for such impairments are unclear as studies have differed in the type and duration of diet exposure as well as in the tasks used to assess deficits in cognition. Here, we focused on hippocampal-dependent tasks. We conducted separate meta-analyses of the results from rodent studies using: 1) different diets (h...

Ms. Winfrey, Can you lose weight while continuing to consume bread and other products made with wheat flour and grains? You absolutely can—though it is quite difficult physically and emotionally, requiring monumental willpower, as you already know. But I fear that you have overlooked crucial issues in your campaign for Weight Watchers and the exoneration of bread. You have, unfortunately, propagated some destructive misconceptions. And the people who you have hurt the most I suspect are the people who you would have preferred to help the most. Losing weight by avoiding processed food products made with wheat and rel...
