I received an email from someone named "Deacon Jones" this morning.  Seems he took exception to my info about gluten and grains.  He cites some obscure reference about how humans can't metabolize amylopectins and therefore should never eat grains, especially wheat.  Wow, weird.  I looked at his reference, the conclusion was simple, that in humans amalyse starches and amylopectins A thru C are digested faster in certain people with the gene for lipoprotein A than the remainder of the population.  Sheesh, so what?  It means that people that are predisposed to high cholesterol need to watch what they eat, and if eating wheat, make it more complex, like genuine whole wheat, rather than pure starch products like white bread.

Isn't that what I have been saying?
