  • "It's definitely one of those fad things"

    I wouldn't say blessed...

    "“It’s definitely one of those fad things,” said Sara Olsen, a wheat farmer from Yuma, Colo., and another representative of the Wheat Foods Council. She fears people are being lead to abandon common sense and risk developing lifelong eating problems and even physical deficiencies in the process.

    Since the 1940s, the U.S. government has mandated that white bread be fortified with folic acid and other essential nutrients.
    “When you travel to places like the Philippines, as I have, where they have health problems because they never had enhanced grains, you realize how blessed we are,” Olsen said."
