As for the wheat thing, I'm anti for the same reasons others are,
I have moderate side effects,
My research indicates the problem is far bigger than anyone suspects,
There is no compelling reason to eat it from a nutritional point of view.
So as mentioned multiple times in different wording it is a high risk product with low reward potential,
if it were a financial investment product, high risk low return, no one would touch it with a barge pole.
The pro wheat argument seems to pretty much be based on the thread title, many eat it and seem to be fine.
I thought about that and find it ironic that so many of these individuals have very strong negative views about Soy, PUFA's, feedlot meat etc, yet somehow wheat seems to be an exclusion in their eyes.
From what I have seen the evidence is no stronger or weaker, one can merely say many people eat SAD and seem to do fine.
Choosing a diet & lifestyle for better health is always going to be opinion based, sure there is some evidence, but very little is overwhelming, so it will always come down to a personal judgement of risk vs reward based on the information one has available and the weighting they give to this information.
The argument that many people eat it and seem to do fine is ineffective as we can simply point out that this group of many is the ones who are developing chronic diseases, trying to counter this with confounders is pointless because the confounders were already present in the original statement.
So the statement could easily and justifyably be re-phrased:
Many people eat wheat and go on to develop chronic disease.
