What's With Wheat?

Runtime: 78m 44s | Release date: 2016

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.

This documentary isn't cohesive in its claims. The documentary talks about gluten being harmful from wheat due to hybridization and pesticide use. However not why we cannot eat gluten from ancient wheat that hasn't been hybridized or say barley or rye. It goes on to say how we should avoid gluten from all sources. Then suddenly, and without any evidence state that we need to avoid all grain including gluten-free grains without anything to back up these claims. Then some contradictory statements such as we need to look after the planet and save our land space from growing crops which is entirely hypocritical when you consider the enormous and unsustainable footprint animal agriculture and consumption has on our plant which far exceeds anything given by plant. A disappointing documentary that failed to inform correctly and inform.

My husband has advanced ankylosing spondylitis, and along the way developed numbness from his toes to his legs to his groin. Once he cut out wheat 3-4 months ago, he is now experiencing feelings again in about 1/3 of the area that used to be numb. You cannot imagine how happy he is, and plans to keep the wheat out so the healing can continue.

Thank you for a wonderful documentary. I absolutely love FMTV but was a bit disappointed that you had a celebrity (Pete Evans) talking on the topic. :(
