I knew about the chemicals being used (on wheat) but I didn't know about the particular chemical Glyphosate. Preceding and just before harvest, it would be sprayed on wheat as a desiccant or drying agent. So it makes harvest easier. That changed the whole documentary in the end because I felt that this was a really, really important thing to tell people... that the reason why maybe they're having problems with wheat is not the wheat, persay... there are some issues with the wheat, but it could also be what they're doing to our wheat, how they're harvesting it, what chemicals they're using, not only preceding the whole growing process, but also at harvest and then in the silo. And then the other thing was the processing of wheat as well. I also learned about the hybridisation of wheat in the 80's in the "Green Revolution". So I identified 14 things that could be happening with wheat, that may be causing all these gluten intolerances, non-celiac gluten sensitivities, an increase in celiac disease.

Her groundbreaking 1998 book ‘Changing Habits Changing Lives’ became an instant bestseller and from there she has grown a successful whole food company, developed a range of healthy eating programs and a certified online nutrition course. In 2016 Cyndi released the acclaimed documentary ‘What’s With Wheat?’ which received 150,000 downloads globally in the first week.

Cyndi educates people so they are empowered to know better, eat better and live better - because educating people about whole food is the key to a rebellion and everyone deserves to know exactly what they are eating.
