Welcome to Episode 18 of The Road to Carnivore Podcast!
This 20-minute episode is all about wheat, and the ways it damages the human body.
Many people are familiar with gluten, and the gut damage it causes is pretty well known and well accepted. But the damage done by wheat is much more than that.
Wheat also damages the brain, the arteries, the bones and joints, and other types of cells and tissues. It also hijacks the reward system in the brain, increases visceral fat, and impacts mental health.
