  • Is there something else in wheat that can be bad for you? I've heard people talk about negative effects of the modified, dwarf, wheat we now use. That it has way more chromosomes, causes visceral fat, opens the protected pathway from the colon to your bloodstream, etc. Is any of that true?

  • @shabido1 Great question! It'd be wonderful if you could post your questions to this specific video on nutritionfacts. org. This way lots of people benefit from the response, and I can actually provide you with links (which I can't do on Youtube). 🙂

  • From a biology aspect, I do not understand where you are getting this statement from. Gluten is a protein. Poly-peptide. Strings of amino acids. Not carbohydrates. I fail to see how gluten equates to sugars.

  • Your statements lead me to believe you are like the typical MD that has no true understanding of good nutrition and health. You dr's are all just trained to push drugs that only help mask symptoms and do nothing to cure. Of course if you cured your patients then you'd be out of business so I see why you prefer to keep them coming back.

  • If you spend a few hours doing some of your own research on the internet you will find out just how destructive gluten is.

    Somewhere Between 1 in 2 and 1 in 4 people have are sensitive to gluten or some of the other proteins found in wheat and never realize it. When they visit the doctor for their arthritis, they are told to take Aleve. Thanks Dr. Pfiser.

    furthermore, 99% of the people who have celiacs disease never get diagnosed.
    So actually more than 1% of the population is celiac positive.

  • Gluten is bad for you. Read up on the link between gluten and schizophrenia . Also google how gluten increases intestinal permeability for everyone. It's bad for you.

  • You're a hack and your numbers are decades old.  People who have Celiac and people who have been diagnosed w/ Celiac are too VERY different numbers.  Hang up the white coat, and go back to your Rockefeller Medicine.

  • I am very disappointed with your stance on Gluten.  Your videos have outdated information, 99% tolerance is no longer a fact. My family has battled Gluten intolerance for decades with out ever an MD giving any indications of relevant possible causes.  Thank our god for Naturopathic medicine!!
    I applaude your stance on Meat and Dairy. You have opened my own and many peoples understandings of the effects of animal products in our diet, however I am very disappointed that a website I count on for relevant up to date information, has left Gluten alone.  How could you ignore such a monumental understanding change?
    Why are your opinions Biased on this matter?

  • This is not true! Gluten turns to sugar and sugar causes inflammation! Inflammation causes many severe diseases like IBS and Cancer, Diabetes or at the least makes you feel sick, tired, lowers concentration and much more. Where did you get your information? 99% are okay? NOT! I have at least 20 friends and family who are affected by gluten that's just in my circle…Go do more research Mr.

  • Could you say the same about people if .07% couldn't eat them?  Then what would be the answer for vegetarians?  It doesn't happen.  Why?  Because veggies are meant for us to eat.  Gluten, however, isn't!  Point, blank, period!

  • But isn't seitan heavily a processed food? Isn't it wheat with all the fiber removed? Isn't that what Dr Greger criticizes about everything from fruit juice to vegetable oil? I find this video very confusing. Which is unusual because I love almost all of Dr Greger's videos and find the daily dozen app extremely helpful.
