The Law of Unintended Consequences
  I’m bringing back a Wheat Belly Blog classic from several years ago, updated to today’s sensibilities and context. The creation of high-yield semi-dwarf wheat, intended to feed the world’s hungry, is a perfect illustration of the Law of Unintended Consequences on a massive worldwide scale.   It’s 1961. Jack Kennedy has been inaugurated as President, the Cuban missile crisis dominates headlines, and Hostess cupcakes and Twinkies are the rage in school kid’s lunch boxes. I was 4 years old, playing with toys on the floor while my mother ironed shirts, Divorce Court droning on the tel...

Are you squeamish about fermentation?
Including fermented foods in your diet is among the most important strategies you can adopt for bowel and overall health. It is so important that I tell people to include at least one, if not many, fermented foods in your daily routine. Fermented foods literally come in thousands of different forms. Among the most familiar are yogurt, kefir, sauerkraut, pickles, and fermented meats like salami and sopressata. (Note that most commercially sold sauerkraut, and pickles in the U.S. are not fermented, but simply packaged in vinegar and brine. Yogurt, and to a lesser degree, kefirs, are fermented for such a short time to hasten ...

Defiant Health podcast: The Loss of Empathy (and how to bring it back)
I posted the latest episode of my Defiant Health Podcast. You can find it here or through your favorite podcast provider. It is estimated that, as modern humans, we have lost about half of the microbial species we used to harbor in our intestinal microbiomes. The loss of the microbial species Lactobacillus reuteri, in particular, by nearly all modern humans has led to a reduction in production of the hormone oxytocin and thereby a loss of empathy, reduced desire for social connection, an increase in social anxiety, and may be a contributing cause to troubling social phenomena such as social isolation, divorce, and suicide....

How Big Pharma Bought Big Media for  $6 Billion: The Unintended Consequences of Direct-to-Consumer Drug Advertising
Media, whether broadcast, streamed, or print, is a lifeline of information for most Americans. Updates on the pandemic, results of an election, knowing whether you are in the path of an oncoming hurricane or snowstorm—we are alerted by news reports and thereby dependent on the factual information they provide. Media informs, shapes opinions, keeps us out of harm’s way. Despite the public pummeling media has received over the past few years, media remains the means through which Americans view much of their world. What the media reports—or does not report—is therefore crucial to shaping opinion and b...

Foreword to Wheat Belly Revised & Expanded Edition
  An excerpt from the Wheat Belly Revised & Expanded Edition: Have you ever come home from the grocery store with a fresh container of milk, opened it and immediately realized that it was bad—sour-smelling, curdled, unfit to drink?  Feed it to the cat? Probably not. Lighten your coffee? I don’t think so. Pour it down the sink—yeah, that’s the ticket. Or maybe go back to the store with some of the curdled remains and ask for your money back.  That is what your reaction to conventional dietary advice should be. You should wrinkle your nose at the bad smell that emanates from advice ...
