Humans first started cultivating grain around 10,000 years ago, a veritable blip in time of our 2,500,000 years of history on earth. Many archeologists believe this was done out of desperation as more desirable foods were harder to come by. The biggest advantage of harvesting grain was it was easy to store it (resists rotting) and move it over long distances. The huge disadvantage was the negligible food & health value in eating something that we had almost no prior experience with. As a result, we got fatter and shorter almost immediately.

Wheat (the most cultivated grain) is now considered to be a long term toxic substance for humans as it raises blood sugars (when eaten as bread, bagels, cake, cookies etc) more than most other carbohydrates. Research has also found that several wheat compounds, zonulin and gliadin (never mind the gluten that is well known to be bad for your digestive system) are implicated in our digestive systems by causing "leaky gut syndrome". Worse still is the recent finding that grain is a main cause of brain inflammation and metabolic disease (includes heart disease, type2 diabetes, dementia, cancer, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease & more).

Wheat is NOT a healthy "food" for humans.

Yes, even modern "whole wheat", supposedly advertised as the "healthy" option is more trouble than it is worth. The only advantage to wheat is that it is cheap to eat. In the long term the damage to ones health will cost vastly more than the short term perceived benefits. Check out the National Institutes of Health double blind 2014 study report on wheat.
