[size=150:2iewy4zb]"Hey buddy, wanna buy some exorphins?"[/size:2iewy4zb]
Dr. Christine Zioudrou and colleagues at the National Institutes of Mental Health got this conversation going back in 1979 with their paper, Opioid peptides derived from food proteins: The exorphins.
Exorphins are exogenously-derived peptides (i.e., short amino acid sequences obtained from outside the body) that exert morphine-like properties. Mimicking the digestive process that occurs in the gastrointestinal tract using the gastric enzyme, pepsin, and hydrochloric acid (stomach acid), Zioudrou et al isolated peptides from wheat gluten with morphine-like activity. They followed this research path because of the apparent association of wheat and mental illness.
In the bioassays used, wheat-derived exorphins competed successfully with the endogenous opiate, met-enkephalin. Interestingly, casein-derived (i.e., casein milk protein) exorphins were also identified that also displayed opiate-binding activity, though less powerfully. The morphine-like activity was also blocked by the drug, naloxone (the same stuff given to people exposed to morphine overdose).
Among the many devastating effects of celiac disease , the immune disease that develops from wheat gluten exposure, are mental and emotional effects, such as anxiety, fatigue, mental "fog," depression, bipolar illness, and schizophrenia, that disappear with removal of gluten. Many parents of autistic children also advocate wheat-free diets for similar reasons.
Among the many wonderful comments posted on the last Heart Scan Blog post, "I can't do it," was Anne's:
I am not the Anne in your post, but I was addicted to wheat. It was my favorite food. I lived on and for breads. Then I discovered I was gluten sensitive and I did go through a withdrawal of about 4 days. After 4 days I noticed my health problems were disappearing. Depression, brain fog and joint pain are 3 of the many symptoms that disappeared. That was 6 yrs ago.
Tell Anne that I had dreams about bread in the beginning - they will pass. Now the donuts, breads, cookies and cakes in the stores and at work don't even look good. In fact, I don't like the smell of bread anymore. It takes time, but the cravings do pass.
Combine wheat"s exorphin-driven addictive potential with its flagrant blood sugar-increasing properties, and you have a formula that:
1) makes you fat
2) increases likelihood of diabetes, and
3) makes you want to keep on doing it.
Reminds me of nicotine. ( ;D - Neo)
My personal view: I have absolutely no remaining doubt that wheat products have no place in the human diet. Not only does the research provide a plausible basis for its adverse health effects, but having asked hundreds of people to remove it from their habits has yielded consistent and remarkable health benefits.

Jep, viljoja ei tee enää mieli jos ihmisille annetaan lääkettä joka tepsii morfiiniriippuvaisuuteen. Viljat lisäävät insuliinitoleranssia, tekevät läskiksi, diabeetikoksi ja mielisairaaksi. Viljaa lapsille!
En tiedä kuinka monella kielellä tämä täytyy takoa ihmisten päihin: leipä, kotimaiset viljat ja etenkin vehnä EI KÄY KAIKILLE. Mineraaleja SISÄLTÄVÄT ja niiden imeytymisen estävää fytiinihappoa (kaura on pahin JA aina täynnä vehnää) sisältämättömät hampunsiemenet, pähkinät ja gojimarjat eivät pure - ne alentavat ruokavalua ja pitävät yllä kylläisyyden tunnetta, ilman luontaisia opiaatteja. Niiden ravintoarvo on legendaarinen, ne laihduttavat, lapset tyykkäävät niistä ja ne parantavat veriarvoja. Manteleita kaikille ja kaikkeen. Jos haluaa vaihtelua, niistä PÄÄSEE EROON, toisin kuin leivän ja viljatuotteiden syömisestä.
Exorfiinit eli viljatuotteet huumeiden listalle? Niistä irtautumiseen tarvitaan lääkkeitä. Subutexia vilja-addiktioon?

[list:2iewy4zb]TV ads, media conversations, magazine articles, even advice from the American Heart Association and USDA (a la Food Pyramid) all agree: eat more whole grains, get more fiber.
What happens when you follow this advice to add more and more whole grains to your diet? Look around you: People gain weight, they become pre-diabetic and diabetic. Lipids and lipoprotein patterns emerge: increased triglycerides and VLDL, reduced HDL, small LDL. Blood sugar goes up, inflammatory responses are ignited. You feel crumby, cancer risk is increased.
"Official" agencies have urged us to eat more grains, get more fiber and most Americans have complied. We now have a nationwide health disaster that will eventually lead to more people with coronary plaque, more heart disease, more heart attack, more heart procedures.
This is why I've been urging patients to go wheat-free. It has proven an extraordinarily and surprisingly effective strategy for:
1) rapid and profound weight loss
2) raising HDL and reducing triglycerides, VLDL, and small LDL
3) reducing blood sugars, pre-diabetes and diabetes
American groceries are dominated by wheat products. What would happen to your health and the health of your family if wheat were abruptly removed from your choices? Would you be less healthy?
No. In fact, your health would be hugely improved. You'd lose a significant quantity of weight. Extraordinary numbers of people would lose diabetic or pre-diabetic tendencies. Feelings of sluggishness, sleepiness, and moodiness would dissolve. Blood pressure would be reduced. The incidence of cancer, skin disease, and inflammatory diseases would plumet.
From a [coronary] plaque control perspective, your HDL cholesterol would rise, triglycerides drop. Small LDL would improve dramatically.
The message: Slash wheat products from your diet. Yes, you'll miss the smell and taste of freshly baked bread. But you'll do it for many more healthy years. And you may do it without a 14 inch scar in your chest.
