I have a function key mapped to this.  There is a function
(set-truncate-lines) that toggles wrapping on and off.

,----[ from my .emacs ]
| (global-set-key (kbd "<f7>") 'set-truncate-lines)

I personally like the not-wrapped default but if I need to read a long
line I just hit F7, read it, and then unwrap it with F7 again.

Having lines not wrap when viewing wide org-mode tables is a good thing.
