Yes, I've read it, and plenty others along the same lines, too. If you can find a copy, I strongly encourage you to read it.
A short synopsis is that grains of most any kind are unhealthy. You can barely hear the word "grain" without "healthy" attached to it... but (according to the author, and for reasons he explains) modern grains affect us in ways which are far removed from health. The worst part of the grain is the bran layer, as well... the part that most people think is the "best" part!
So, as to your topic, "whole grain" OR "wheat" are both not good. Some grains are somewhat less bad... but I try to avoid any of them, and it seems to be beneficial for me. The thing is, many people measure food's effects strictly on the basis of how they digest it. Unfortunately, many of the effects of grains are systemic, not just digestive.
Please read the book. Sometimes you can get a copy through a local library; but there seems to be waiting lists most of the time.
...the problem with people these days is
they've forgotten we're really just animals ...
We did not create the web of life; we are but a strand in it.
We don't have souls. We ARE souls. We have bodies.
