The "Big-Wheat" Empire Strikes Back: Attack Begins on Dr. Davis and Wheat Belly

The Grain Foods Foundation, Wheat Foods Council, Go with the Grain, GrainPower, SixServings, you know them by many names but they all have one goal.  To fatten you you up with wheat before the slaughter - by your own bagel-laden hand - while making a buck in the process.

This collection of dubious organizations has recently gone after Dr. William R. Davis and his new book "Wheat Belly" in what I believe will be a vain attempt to discredit him before the truth gets out.  A truth that could cost them billions of dollars.  Judging by the overwhelming online response and support of Doc Davis they may have bitten off more than they can chew.  Here is the link.

After reading it I thought I would do a quick investigation into their so-called "Scientific Advisory Board."  It ain't pretty.  This is what passes for independent scientific advice?  Yikes!

Glenn Gaesser, PhD: Author of "Big Fat Lies" a book that promotes the concept that actual weight (how fat you are) is not as important as (surprise) dietary fat.  Not surprisingly, the book recommends a diet of complex carbohydrates. Most humorously, it rails against the so-called "experts" who produce healthy weight/height charts. Gee, isn't it the Grain Foods Council who admonishes us to believe the "experts?"

James R. Gavin III, MD, PhD:  This disclosure gem is precious. "Served as an advisor or consultant for: sanofi-aventis; LifeScan, Inc.; Eli Lilly and Company; Daiichi Sankyo, Inc.; Abbott Diabetes Care; AstraZeneca Pharmaceuticals LP; Served as a speaker or a member of a speakers bureau for: Novo Nordisk; Bristol-Myers Squibb Company; AstraZeneca Pharmaceuticals LP; sanofi-aventis: Owns stock, stock options, or bonds from: Amylin Pharmaceuticals, Inc.; Served as member of the Board of Directors for: Amylin Pharmaceuticals, Inc."  Care to guess on what ALL the above drug companies have in common?  Surprise, surprise, surprise, they make diabetes drugs!  LifeScan, Inc. makes blood glucose monitors.  Hmmm, does it seem that ANY of these companies is particularly interested in reducing the number of diabetics?

Ronald Kleinman, MD: Yeah, it gets better!  Kleinman, who is known to accept compensation for his opinion, "serves on scientific advisory boards for General Mills, the Grain Foods Foundation and Burger King. He is a member of the Board of Directors for Project Bread in Boston; a member of the Board of Directors Global Child Health Foundation; and a consultant for Mead Johnson Nutritionals."  Hey, guess who owned Mead Johnson for 42 years?  Bristol-Myers Squibb!  Guess what the first item is in the Mead Johnson Food Pyramid For Pregnant Women.  If guessed "grains" give yourself a gold star!  And whats with: General Mills?  Burger King?  Project Bread?  LMAO!  You're kidding, right?

Robert S. Rosenson, MD: The beat goes on. He "Served as an advisor or consultant for: Abbott Laboratories; Amarin Corporation plc; Amgen Inc.; Genentech, Inc.; LipoScience Inc.; Roche; sanofi-aventis; Received grants for clinical research from: Amgen Inc.; Genentech, Inc.; Roche.  We covered some of the other drug makers.  Amarin is finalizing development of drug to treat high triglycerides.  Guess what one of the leading causes of high-TGs is.  Roche make anti-diabetes drugs and the famous Accu-Check blood glucose monitor.

Shelley Case, RD: Can't say much about Ms. Case.  Her financials are clean but her laser-like focus and expertise is restricted to the gluten protein and celiac disease.  What about all those other proteins manufactured by the extra 28 chromosomes in the cross-bred and genetically engineered "Franken-food" we call wheat.  To quote Ms. Case, "Patients should be thoroughly tested for Celiac if they present with conditions such as anemia, bone issues, thyroid and liver dysfunction, and arthritis."  Hmmm, any chance those conditions -  as mentioned in Wheat Belly - could be due to one of the other proteins in wheat?

Julie Miller Jones, PhD, LN, CNS:  This quote from Ms. Jones and a group of her cronies enlisted by grain growers in response to the USDA altering the food pyramid logo says it all.  " ... we will provide input on the science behind the new icon and ways to achieve the key goal of getting consumers to eat more healthfully, ensuring they are getting their six servings of grains daily, making at least half their grains whole and the rest enriched grains."  Does that include celiacs?  Do you suppose Ms. Case and Ms. Jones ever talk?

Sylvia Melendez-Klinger, MS, RD, LD: From Ms. Klingers corporate website, "Ms. Klinger is also culinary consultant to food and beverage companies such as The Coca-Cola Company, Kellogg’s, Hormel Foods, Ross Laboratories, GlaxoSmithKline, Dannon, AztraZeneca, Uniliver, Mc Neil Nutritionals, and Weight Watchers International were she completed numerous administrative and communications projects."  I think that just about covers Ms. Melendez-Klinger's credentials as an "independent" expert!

Bruce Young, MD: Dr.Young is an obstetrician and gynecologist with credentials in programs for mid-wifery and fetal medicine but I have no idea what his standing is as a grain expert.  Best I can tell "Big-Wheat" wants so-called experts to push wheat from conception to our untimely and miserable deaths.

Yeah, if this is an "independent" board then I'm Batman (I'd settle for Bruce Wayne, hell, I'd settle for Adam West).  But what did you expect?  Let the battle begin.  If this is the best the competition can offer I'm betting on Doc Davis!

Looking out for your health,

Attacking Dr. Davis's book will backfire on these critics, I believe. He carefully explained the science behind his assertions. Anyone can verify his statements on Wikipedia. This induced me to drop wheat products from my diet within 24 hours of reading the book. The next day I stocked up on rice, corn and potatoes (avoiding any that are high in Amylopectin A).
