Wheat has always been the staple food of humanity, the very foundation of the first civilizations of the world. But today, for a growing number of people, it has become a poison, which has allowed the emergence of a new market of expensive gluten-free products.
And yet, the real cause of this sudden tsunami of grain intolerance remains a mystery. How come all of a sudden, many of us no longer support cereal, highly nutritious in protein? Have recent changes in our eating habits triggered the epidemic? Is wheat not the good old grain we've been eating for 10,000 years?
Scientists, activists and committed farmers are trying to uncover the truth on the real qualities of industrial foods.
