But I've often wondered about the whole gluten thing. How could something as simple and basic as wheat be harmful? Aside from the highly processed versions of wheat products.
I mean, wheat has been around for millennia and has been a major source of sustenance for countless millions. Why would modern day humans have a problem with it?
Then I came across this article.
The intriguing part was this:
In the 1950s, scientists began cross-breeding wheat to make hardier, shorter and better-growing plants. It was the basis of the Green Revolution that boosted wheat harvests worldwide. Norman Borlaug, the U.S. plant scientist behind many of the innovations, won the Nobel Peace Prize for his work.
Could human manipulation have something to do with it? Makes me wonder what we may eventually discover about GMOs that no one knows yet.
