Gluten: ZERO Global
by Rodney Ford
This book confronts the biggest controversy surrounding our traditional food. It is the story of adopting wheat 10,000 years ago (which launched mankind into the agricultural revolution); the incorporation of the gluten-grains into every aspect of our diets (which nourished the peoples of this world with plentiful food); but now the alarming recent discovery that gluten–wheat is causing universal harm (which is causing millions to suffer). Ironically, the sickness and health industry is being fuelled by gluten-related disorders; whilst at the same time the food industry is obsessed by providing ever-more high-gluten foods to the whole population. The solution is that everyone needs to adopt a gluten-zero lifestyle. I present you with the compelling evidence that gluten is bad for us all!
