All about bread
Transcript of All about bread
We have all been programmed to believe that grains are a health food. From whole wheat bread to pasta, cereals and rice. We have never been told how bad wheat can be for us.
The grains put a huge sugar load on the body while providing little nutrients, something our genes weren’t designed to handle well. They also contain “anti nutrients” that block the absorption of minerals like calcium, iron and zinc.
Why is it bad?
Increases blood sugar levels: Wheat contains amylopectin A, a type of molecule that is more efficiently converted to blood sugar than just about any other carbohydrate. After the consumption of wheat your blood sugar levels increase and in a matter of 2-hours you’re bound to be going through the fridge once again in an effort to satisfy your appetite.
Addictive: Researchers from the National Institute of Health discovered that the gluten found in bread tickles the brains opiate receptors eliciting a sense of euphoria when consumed.
Mucus forming: Mucus is the body’s natural defense mechanism to protect our cells, tissues and organs from the harmful acid found within bread.
Difficult to digest: Bread contains gluten which is very difficult for the human body to digest and it requires a very strong acid in the stomach to process it. It can sometimes take as long as 4-weeks to digest a meal containing mostly wheat.
Nutritionally deficient: During the refining process, bread is stripped of its healthy elements including bran and germ. This means most of the vitamins and minerals are lost leaving you with nothing but a mucus forming.
Gluten is a troublesome protein that
appears to be doing more damage
to our healths than we initially
thought. This little guy is found
in wheat,barley, and rye.
A certain percentage of us contain
genes that see gluten for the foreign
substance that it truly is. Our
immune system reacts to it, but
that immune response itself can
So how many of us contain genes
that see gluten as toxic? According
to some research it might be 50% or more.
How many teaspoons of sugar are in two thin slices of supposedly healthy whole grain bread?
Ten (10) teaspoons of sugar.
Now how many teaspoons of sugar are in a very sweet tasting snickers bar? 8.5 teaspoons of sugar.
Basically, enriched flour
means nutrients are stripped
from the bread.
So, how much bread
do you eat??
In one study, 36 men were randomized into two groups. They were instructed to eat either whole oat cereal or whole wheat cereal.
After 12 weeks, the researchers measured blood lipid levels in both
groups. The oat cereal decreased LDL cholesterol and small, dense
LDL. Basically, whole oats significantly improved the blood lipid profile.
However, the whole wheat cereal increased total LDL cholesterol by 8%
and small, dense LDL by a 60%. Small, dense LDL is the type of
cholesterol that is strongly associated with heart disease.
Whole Wheat Raises Cholesterol:

are not supposed to eat gluten which is in the bread that we eat?
