  1. World wheat production was 586.1 million metric tons in 2000. It was 651.4 million metric tons in 2010.
    Up 11%.

    What “real-world observations” are they looking at?

    “Growing body”
    “almost inevitable”

    Weasels. And liars.

  2. So what is the problem? Bill O’Reilly and other Munchausen Alarmists are telling us how deadly wheat is. Wheat has been the staple diet of most of civilization from the beginning, but they need a good scare to get their name in the news.

  4. That claim ignores the claims elsewhere that the Amazon basin will be deforested to a grassland, becoming a new ‘breadbasket.’ 🙂
