We are naturally thin. For 1.8 million years, prehistoric man hunted and gathered proteins and fats, and no one was overweight. Then 10,000 years ago, with the agricultural revolution, historic man discovered that he could grow grasses, mainly wheat, sugar cane, and corn, ushering in the "diseases of civilization". Men and woman of leisure became fat. The end of the Second World War allowed us to turn our attention to feeding the world with "frankengrains" and refined food. Suddenly, we found that we all were overweight, poisoning ourselves with grasses and cereal grains that we were never meant to eat, which our bodies just didn't know how to digest. Grass-Free is a review of how to stop poisoning ourselves, how to get back to our natural weights, and how to stop autoimmune diseases, like arthritis, from their painful killing ways.
