We’re getting there awfully fast: One million visits to the Wheat Belly Blog!
I added the tracking widget around Halloween of 2011, after book launch August 31, so I missed the first few months. Nonetheless, it reflects the wonderful attention these arguments are receiving.
And the audience is growing faster and faster!
Have no doubt: Wheat freedom is overtaking the world!
Let Big Food, Agribusiness, and their government partners, the USDA, FDA, and U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, end up with egg on their face. The FDA is considering allowing the food industry to use the claim that whole grains reduce the likelihood of type 2 diabetes based on the results of epidemiologic studies, what would amount to an incredibly stupid claim. Like the American Diabetes Association, the agency in the business of increasing diabetes and the need for diabetic drugs, we are pitted against powerful and well-funded agencies who work to grow their franchises and the U.S. economy . . . at your health expense.
We expose this rotten, fetid, festering corpse for all to see. Wheat is an opiate and it is being used to stimulate your appetite to sell more products. It sells more bread, pasta, cookies, and cakes. It sells more Twizzlers, granola bars, and breakfast cereals. It sells more arthritis drugs, acid reflux drugs, cholesterol drugs, blood pressure drugs, psychiatric drugs. It sells more joint prostheses, defibrillators and pacemakers, and hospitalizations. This is no small issue. It is an issue that approaches $hundreds of billions of threatened revenue to entrenched interests.
Wheat Belly is not just a book—it is a movement.
