J. Jones. St. Catherine University, St. Paul, MN, U.S.A. Cereal Foods World 57(4):177-189. http://dx.doi.org/10.1094/CFW-57-4-0177

In this review of the popular press book Wheat Belly by William Davis, a variety of the positions discussed in the book are analyzed using scientific literature by first stating Davis’ point and then providing an analysis of the point. The statements can be divided into four categories: 1) those which are based on good, sound nutrition science; 2) those that are controversial, i.e., there are studies supporting both sides of the issue; 3) those that are theory, i.e., they have no data to support or refute them; and 4) those that run counter to widely supported data reported in the scientific and medical literature.
