Organic Common Wheat and Organic Durum Wheat
The beneﬁts of organic wheat most documented by repeated studies include:
- stroke risk reduced 30-36% - type 2 diabetes risk reduced 21-30% - heart disease risk reduced 25-28% - better weight maintenance
Other beneﬁts indicated by recent studies include:
- reduced risk of asthma - healthier carotid arteries - reduction of inﬂammatory disease risk - lower risk of colorectal cancer - healthier blood pressure levels - less gum disease and tooth loss
Besides these benefits, for those people who are prone to allergic reactions, whole wheat consumption can lead to allergies, such as skin rash, hives, itching, and eczema. Swelling of the lips, tongue, or throat or tingling sensation in the mouth can also be seen.
