For nearly a decade, Colpo has been slaying nutritional dragons and diet gurus with his scientific rigor and the unapologetic truth in a way that could almost be considered a martial art. In this book he examines the pervasive belief that whole grains are both healthy in general and healthier than their refined counterparts.
The verdict? No they're not. And the foundation upon which the belief that whole grains are healthy is built will shock you!
In the book you'll learn that you may be giving yourself arsenic poisoning with all that brown rice you've been eating, depleting your body of valuable minerals with your whole grain bread and porridge, and otherwise torturing your bowels and taste buds with spoonful after spoonful of empty promises.
Listen to Whole Grains, Empty Promises and decide for yourself if whole grains are really all they're cracked up to be.

Interesting, but doesn't go far enough
Any additional comments?
The ideas and facts presented are interesting, but he doesn't go far enough. He tells us why whole grains don't live up to their reputation, but doesn't offer any real information about what to use as an alternative.
He doesn't say if there is anything that has been definitely shown to help with diverticulitis or that offer any of the other purported helpful benefits of whole grains. I learned quite a lot about whole grains, including the anti-nutrients in them and arsenic in rice, but would've liked to hear what he recommends instead.
In addition, the sarcastic tone of the author can be a bit overwhelming. If you aren't ready to hear this negative news about whole grains, if you are a whole grain believer, then his tone isn't gonna win you over and keep you listening.
In addition, it's odd to hear an American narrator using Australian slang. Might've been better with an Australian or UK narrator.

Entertaining and informative
Anthony reinforces what I have heard about whole grains in a very entertaining and informative way. Very enjoyable listen.
