Didn't think this report was particularly good. Have to wonder how many of these studies are funded by the wheat industry. No one wants to rock the boat    other than a few people like W Davis who is then branded. Its getting to be like the GMO issue and in a sense it is related. If Borlaug had not modified the wheats in the 60s  to contain 14 times the gluten  would we all be having these problems? Funny how the French didnt accept the American  wheat and have much less of a problem than their neighbors.

I was there.  I heard the presentations.  The wheat does not contain more gluten.  Its not "GMO" in the sense that many are using the term these days.  Its a hybrid.  If you read the article and the research it is linked to, it states that there is not more gluten in the dwarf hybrid of wheat.

Did you read  wheat Belly? I'll try to find the link for the Aussie study saying  14 times the gluten ..    Using  gmo in this contest  was  discussed at a conference im  at today.  Its all semantics.  cross pollination  can or cant be considered  GMO  and the  letters are used to prove points on either side of that issue.  Borlaugs wheats are not transgentic but they were modified genetically.
