The lead into the point is very long - we get it after a few chapters, but the information is nonetheless very valable and well documented.
This is an information book - as stated, it is long in unwinding to the actual point. But the evidence is well covered, thorough and interesting.
Information - not emotion
Maybe the papercopy would have been more appropriate, to refer to certain points or lists, but the associated cookbook covers that. I would not have read through had it not been in audio format.
The narrator has a pleasant tone that makes listening easy
Hard to say. The whole book is so informative.
Good to know, but you should read around about some of the research he uses to make some of his conclusions.
Probably not because it's a lot of scientific information, which, in my case is something easier learned with visuals and time to contemplate and absorb.
It was nonfiction
Not a bad voice, but he clearly didn't know anything about the material he was reading. He pronounced quinoa "kwi-no-ah" which made me flinch every time. It didn't seem like he was even listening to himself talk.
I really liked learning how wheat has changed over the last 50 years from "amber waves of grain" to 18-inch GMO dwarf wheat and how gluten exacerbates the symptoms of schizophrenia.
The wealth of information and clear, hard data.
Learning the history of modern wheat, particularly the incredible lack of any safety testing as wheat's genetics were manipulated over and over again.
Wheat kills slowly.
If you eat, you should read this book.
Shed the bellyfat.
Understanding how wheat can kill you.
I was amazed as to the bill of goods we have been sold over the last 50 years.
Learning information about wheat (so-called) that is new to me. I've removed wheat as much as possible from my diet to see what happens.
It opened my eyes about what is in our food...lots of "wheat"..... Parts of it cross the blood-brain barrier and head for the brain's morphine receptors? Wheat is addictive? Is this why when I follow a low carb/no carb diet I do not get hungry?
No. Except that I bought a hard copy for my daughter and mom-in-law.
I would probably not try another book by the author William Davis. While the information is worthwhile on the whole, some (see minimal) investigation on google reveals that a lot of the source material for the book is fraudulent. That being said the message provided and the benefits to be gained from a keto-esque diet make it a still worthwhile read.
The most shocking to me was the depictions of how the grain wheat has changed through the years
Yes in that some of the scientific terms for dissected wheat would slow down my reading of the book
Who knows what ever grabs me.
