I'm onboard w/ the opioid peptides, but a little disappointed that the source article http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-505269_162-57505149/modern-wheat-a-perfect-chronic-poison-doctor-says/ says

Gliadin is new??????

Then it brings up an opioid question - is the term 'comfort food' much newer than I thought, as in starting w/ the 60s-70s strains? Doubtful, right?

My money's on opioid properties of 40s wheat, for instance, existing & contributing to ppl calling mac&cheese comfort food.
