Letter to the Editor Sent to :
DAILY TELEGRAPH , THE (LONDON)
Dear Editor: Last weeks ‘Horizon, programme may have fuelled the prejudices of the anti-‘clean’ food lobby but to what purpose. As often is the case the producers of this programme had not fully researched their subject matter. Quite frankly it was lightweight and somewhat insulting in its lack of depth and intelligent discussion on the issues surrounding our current food systems. Gluten free products are big business and guess what the large food corporates are making massive amounts of money selling processed, gluten free products with little nutrient value. More and more evidence is coming to the fore condemning wheat sprayed with large amounts of glyphosate as being particularly injurious to health over a long period of time - where was the discussion on genetically modified wheat and its inclusion in processed foods and the real value of eating such a nutrient lacking, health threatening diet. For people with compromised digestive systems giving up this type of wheat can do no harm. There was some discussion on the alkaline movement but little mention that those people following this diet are choosing and maybe more in a position to afford vegetables grown in a more environmentally sustainable way with less pesticides, herbicides etc. Not eating meat that has been drenched in antibiotics, fed vast amounts of GM corn and produced in many cases in ‘Auschwitz’- like conditions. The premise of this programme was sound but it did not inform and its negative conclusions were very suspect. Placing the word science and expert in the same sentence produces a somewhat illusory confidence in the speaker. I would suggest that ‘The greatest obstacle to discovery is not ignorance it is the illusion of knowledge.’
