MORE ABOUT THE FILM
“If you don’t think we’re at a crisis then you’re not watching... we have an extreme health crisis among our children today.” – Sally Fallon Morrel, Weston A Price Foundation.
More and more people are diagnosed with coeliac and non-coeliac 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. 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's own story. A nutritionist for over 30 years, Cyndi has always lived a healthy lifestyle, in fact she has never taken any medication, not even panadol. Cyndi went on an elimination diet a few years ago after gaining some excess weight and suffering aches and pains, which she thought was just part of getting older. After eliminating foods from 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 organic.
What she found is that 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 now grown?
What is added to the wheat?
How differently is our food now processed?
How much wheat we are consuming as a society?
Why wheat is now added to other foods and cosmetics?
Why wheat is so addictive?
Tens of thousands of people are suffering with ill health and don’t realise it’s a result of the food choices they make! They often assume it’s part of their genetic make-up or just part of getting older. The story of wheat is the story of food – we need to become educated, knowledgeable and aware. As a society, we need to start making changes to improve the health of our children and future generations.
This film is a must watch for anyone with health concerns.
