The issue with wheat goes way beyond just gluten. Wheat has been eaten for thousands of years, yet as of late it is being linked to many health concerns. It seems that every product on the shelf now has a gluten-free option, but why? Cyndi O’Meara is an internationally acclaimed nutritionist and the founder of Changing Habits. She created the documentary “What’s with Wheat,” which investigates what is actually at the root of the problem with wheat. That would be: Glyphosate. I’m sure you’ve seen the news stories or commercials asking about a type of cancer linked with glyphosate, an ingredient in the product RoundUp. They have settled multiple lawsuits due to the link between glyphosate and cancer. You can find the documentary “What’s with Wheat,” here.
