FMTV - What's With Wheat

What's With Wheat

Runtime: 78m 44s | Release date: 2016

This film features: Cyndi O'Meara, David Perlmutter, Joel Salatin, Kim Morrison, Vandana Shiva.

More and more people are diagnosed with celiac and non-celiac gluten sensitivity than ever before! You have to ask the question, "WHY?".

Cyndi O'Meara, nutritionist and founder of Changing Habits, went on a global quest to find out the reason why! She could not understand why, after millions of years of eating wheat, we now have this growing epidemic of wheat and gluten intolerance.

Fourteen experts from Australia, United States, England, New Zealand and India, including Dr. Perlmutter, Sarah Ballantyne, Dr. Terry Wahls, Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride, Pete Evans, and others, weigh in on the subject and provide chilling answers.

This is also about Cyndi O’Meara’s story. Cyndi has been a nutritionist for over 30 years, and has lived a healthy lifestyle her entire life. In fact, she has never taken any medication, not even panadol (acetaminophen). Cyndi went on an elimination diet a few years ago after gaining some excess weight and suffered aches and pains, which she thought was just part of getting older. After eliminating foods out of her diet, she noticed when she re-introduced wheat that her aches and pains came back. She started to question why, as she was brought up on a healthy diet, had eaten healthy foods all her life, and the bread she ate was always from organic sources.

Our wheat has changed dramatically; it doesn’t even resemble what it used to look like. Not only are we seeing more wheat and gluten sensitivity, but there is also a strong connection between gluten and autoimmune diseases.

This documentary answers these pressing questions:

  • How is our wheat grown now?
  • What is added to the wheat?
  • How is our food processed differently now?
  • How much wheat we are consuming as a society?
  • Why is wheat now added to other foods and cosmetics?
  • Why is wheat so addictive?

So many people are used to not feeling well. Major changes need to be made in people’s diet, including the removal of wheat and gluten, to know what it feels like to feel well.

Tens of thousands of people are suffering with ill health and don’t realize it’s a result of the food choices they are making. They often assume it is part of their genetic make-up or the fact they are getting older. The story of wheat is the story of food; and people need to become educated, knowledgeable and aware. They need to start making changes to improve the health of their children and future generations. A "must watch" for anyone who is concerned about the foods they consume or may have any kind of health concerns. Wheat can certainly be the issue for many.

I have been gluten free for decades. At the moment I am suffering from very painful arthritis in my hand. Stiff gingers that have very limited range of motion. I had no idea that gluten was also in personal care products and in vitamins. I will be much more diligent in seeking out gluten free options. Thank you so much for this documentary!

GET off dairy too.... And animal products... Since I did this I am pain free... Good carbohydrates are good for you.. Fruits, veggies, quinoa are great.. I hate that they don't show the difference between carbohydrates.. Big difference between fruits and veggies and bread , cookies and crappy sugary cakes

Really enjoyed this. The only thing that I didn’t like was some of the participants saying if you go back to wheat- why would you want to go back? the huge conglomerations that run this industry aren’t going to stop what they’re doing anytime soon. The only solution is getting rid of it.

Well-done for the most part. It's informative and interesting, though gets a bit repetitive at the end. The dialogue is often badly recorded and mixed, which is distracting to me since I specialize in audio production. Aside from that, I say it is worth watching.
