The intelligence in life manifested wheat on earth for humans to eat. Humans did not grow the first seed of wheat. Wheat grew as a manifestation of the diversity in the food that grows on earth.
Man eats wheat and other diversity of food that grows on earth. Man learned to cultivate wheat and all the diversity in food, including vegetables. After World War II, wheat was found to grow well in Europe due to ammunition degradation.
This paved the way for fertilizers to flourish. Fertilizers use the same materials that were used to make ammunition. Fertilizers easily dissolve in water and this paved the way to stagnant water irrigation.
Wheat soon became a major crop that was easily available for humans to eat. The medical industry too advised rice to be replaced with wheat for diabetics. Wheat, therefore, became the staple food for man and diabetics.
The wheat that is grown by modern techniques of stagnant water irrigation with fertilizers has an added problem. The wheat is bleached white with a chemical alloxan. The bleaching removes the little fibre and nutrients that wheat has.
Fertilizers and alloxan have their own harmful effects to the human body, besides gluten that is present naturally in wheat. Wheat has gluten present in it which helps to bind wheat together and make cooking easy.
Gluten in the intestines prevents absorption of essential hormones such as thyroid, pancreatic insulin and pituitary hormones. This gives rise to obesity and different types of ill-health, such as thyroid problems. In addition, there are problems due to a deficiency of other essential, pituitary hormones.
The levels of alloxan present in wheat accumulate in the body due to daily intake of wheat. This insidious accumulation of alloxan has no immediate ill-effects, but it does eventually, however, lead to diabetes.
Similarly, the levels of toxic ingredients present in fertilizers, insecticides and herbicides accumulate in the body due to daily intake of wheat. This insidious accumulation of the toxic ingredients has no immediate ill-effects, but it does eventually, however, lead to a diversity of ill-health.
Millets do not need stagnant water, fertilizers, insecticides or herbicides to grow them. Millets have plenty of fibre and nutrients more than wheat has and lead not only to good health, but also cure ill-health due to wheat.

The intelligence of life is manifesting serious concern in communities for a balanced way of life that supports and sustains good health both mentally and physically throughout man’s lifetime. An example of this is the steep rise in the present demand for and production of gluten-free food and in the availability of gluten-free food in restaurants and cafes. Deep understanding of life’s natural provision is gifted by the wise in these articles. Access to this understanding is denied to no living man or woman nor must it be to succeeding generations.

German Translator’s Note:
Dr. Shankar in the series “Intelligence“ has clearly explained why millets are healthy as staplefood for humanity and for the environment. Many may be bored by eating millets every day, however the conditioned mind does not recognise the contradiction in this argumentation. Nobody is bored so far by using wheat as a daily food be it in bread, noodles or any other of the varied forms of wheat, be it in fresh food or in convenience food. In this article the disadvantages of wheat is described in great detail. Thank you, once again, Dr. Shankar!
