Gluten Is Big Business

Unfortunately our food pyramid is based on grains, so convincing Americans that a gluten-free diet is the way to go is an uphill battle. From an early age we are taught in school that we should have three servings of grains per day. In many biblical teachings wheat is the staff of life. So if it is so good for us, how come so many medical illnesses have been linked to these very grains? It boils down to gluten is a big business. Go to you cupboard and read the ingredient labels on your food and you'll find gluten in just about everything. We are a small voice that knows the damage that can be done to the human body by digesting this processed poison. The political lobbying muscle backing this industry on capital hill will not stand for the messages we preach. So be smart the next time you go shopping and do some research of the ingredients in your favorite product. I bet you think twice about serving it to your family. Just because the food industry uses it doesn't make it safe.
