Overview

Learn the shocking truth about how gluten cereal grains effect our health
 
Could gluten be contributing to your fatigue, stress, bloating, and ill health? Long before Grain Brain was a bestseller, Dangerous Grains was the first book to examine in depth the hazards of gluten cereal grains. James Braly, M.D., a renowned food allergy expert and Ron Hoggan, M.A., a respected patient advocate, reveal the negative impact of gluten grains.  Discover the benefits of a gluten-free diet in relieving and preventing the ailments associated with celiac disease, gluten sensitivity, and more than 200 chronic illnesses, including:
  • Cancer
  • Autoimmune diseases
  • Osteoporosis
  • Brain disorders
  • Intestinal disease
  • Chronic pain
  • Digestive disorders
  • Infertility and problematic pregnancies  

Tracking the genetic and evolutionary history of humans and grain consumption, Dangerous Grains can help you understand how grains can affect your health, and whether you are at risk for gluten-influenced illnesses.
