Wheat intolerance is consistently rising in huge numbers.
We know that humans don’t fully digest wheat. Animals with more than one stomach, like cows and sheep do. But we don’t. That means undigested gluten gets into the stomach, where it can ferment, causing gas and boating.
We also know that wheat, even in people without an intolerance, can cause ‘leaky gut syndrome’ by creating a more permeable intestinal lining. This extra permeability allows gluten, toxins, and other substances, to get into the bloodstream where they can initiate immune responses and produce otherwise unexplainable symptoms.
