The Plant Paradox is a story of the hidden dangers in the so-called healthy foods that cause weight gain and diseases.
Gluten is a kind of protein that is found in the most common food that American eat, wheat. Although gluten serves medical purposes, too much amount of this protein can cause inflammation. Americans spend millions of dollars to have a gluten-free diet with the hopes of protecting their health. However, this effort is futile if you’re not addressing the root cause of the problem. The Plant Paradox by Dr. Steven Gundry will shock you about gluten which is just a single variety of highly toxic and common plant-based protein which is Lectin.
A renowned cardiologist, the author explains that lectin is not only found in wheat but also available in the so-called “gluten-free” foods such as many fruits, nuts, bean, vegetables, and dairy product — proteins found in the grains, seeds, rinds, skins, and plant leaves redesigned by nature to be protected from predators including humans. If ingested, these proteins will have a chemical reaction against the body’s immune system causing inflammatory disorders that that will result in weight gain and other serious health issues.
