Is wheat our friend or foe? A diet aid or mealtime nemesis? A blessing from above or a curse from below? Is all wheat the same? Join me as I interview Sue Becker of the Bread Beckers on this controversial topic. You'll be surprised as Sue exposes major flaws in the Wheat Belly book, debunks the myth that wheat makes you fat, and explains the difference between hybridization and genetic modification.
