I blame Big Ag -- they have adulterated so many things, especially wheat. And packaged foods of all kinds are loaded with unhealthy substances. People who eat that shit and fast food are destined to become gigantic.
I don't think it's wheat. Actually wheat in its purest form is quite healthy.
Organic multigrain Breads are very nutritious.
The Big killer in the United States ( and Canada) is all this processed high fructose corn syrup.
It's in our breads, pop,fast foods, you name it.
And it's fattening our Kids and adults.
We have plenty of fat people in Canada too.
HFCS should be banned. People used to eat sugar, but it was from beets and sugar cane, not this highly processed HFCS.
Plus all that additive chit like MSG, and red/yellow dyes are poison & contribute among other things, the epidemic of autism in our Children. They should be banned for good.
I believe the European Union banned genetically modified foods
