WHEAT BELLY questions from a consumer

Hi Anita,
 
I have a friend who came across the book called "Wheat Belly."  It claims wheat produced today is different from the wheat produced decades ago.  Therefore, it is not as healthy for us and it is causing both diabetes and obesity in this country.
MY RESPONSE: Food basically doesn’t change too much over time but know that no food is exactly what it was nutrient-wise over time….all foods are tested for current nutrient contents by the USDA on a regular basis. Say every one or two years. Obesity and diabetes mellitus can result from eating too much but whole wheat or grains isn’t to blame for this. Many things can contribute to these developing these diseases. To say it causes these diseases is a bit simplistic and sounds like hype but is definitely an attention getter. That’s like saying grapes are the sole cause of alcoholism. Get my drift?
 
What is your opinion of this? 
MY RESPONSE: All food can fit in a healthy diet.
 
Also, what is the difference between "100% whole wheat" [MY RESPONSE: made with the whole kernel of wheat] and "100% whole grain [MY RESPONSE: made with the whole kernel of whatever grain is being used in the food product] ?"
 
Thank you for you time and I look forward to your opinion.
 
BELLY BABE
