"The Truth About Wheat Program" Now Available On Line

Fri, 11 Sep 2015 15:56:08 CDT

Wheat has been successfully feeding civilizations for over 10,000 years and has the nickname "Staff of Life". That is a name that no other crop in the world holds, so why is wheat being
called a villain now? It is packed full of important vitamins, nutrients and fiber and is made into delicious products. Are the so-called experts really telling the truth about wheat or is their goal to gain attention and money while hurting their followers in health and nutrition with Fad diets that will be refuted a few years later.

Please join OETA on-line and learn the "Truth About Wheat" by clicking here. Sit down at the dining room table for an informative discussion with experts, Dr. Brett Carver, Regents Professor and Wheat Genetics Chair in Agriculture from Oklahoma State University; Dr. Julie Miller-Jones, Board Certified Nutrition Specialist and Licensed Nutritionist and current Distinguished Scholar and Professor Emeritus of Nutrition at St. Catherine University in St. Paul, MN., and Sara Olsen, Colorado Wheat Farmer, Mother & Colorado Wheat Administrative Council board member moderated by well-known agriculture reporter Ken Root.

Communities, states, and organizations are encouraged to persuade their local PBS station's Program Directors to consider to air the show in your TV viewing area. If interested, they can contact OETA at 405-848-8501 and ask for the Executive Director to work out the details.
