Question about casein, and corn flakes

Food myth #6 in your book The Thinking Person's Guide to Perfect Health about casein in milk products is confusing for me. The fact that casein is used to make glue compares to the dextrins in corn also used to make glue and nothing bad is said about eating corn flakes. What can you tell me about this?

Well, of course wheat flakes contain gluten which makes mucous (which also glues your colon to itself rather effectively.) I do not have a beef with corn flakes as long as your body remains in an alkaline condition which means veggies to balance those flakes. I occasionally hear people say they eat a lot of grain and they seem proud of the fact they are doing something good for their health. Of course, they are mistaken in that excess grains are not particularly nourishing and lead to carbohydrate overload which stresses the pancreas and can lead to type 2 diabetes.
