Thank you Jaque. I personally don't avoid lectins as I don't seem to have any ill effects when eating them. Other members do notice ill effects. It's all so very interesting.Jaque wrote:Please also see this link and the many specific links in that post as well.

In reality, both groups were given zero alcohol drinks. The human mind is powerful. That's why scientific trials use controls, randomization, washout, crossover and blinding. If a sound scientific process is used, then the conclusions are probably reliable. Even if they are inconvenient. The scientific process carries more reliable weight than the personality or credentials of any individual.

Indeed, WGA lectin is so powerful as an insecticide that biotech firms have used recombinant DNA technology to create genetically modified WGA-enhanced plants.
WGA is largely responsible for many of wheat's pervasive ill effects.
What’s more, WGA is found in highest concentrations in "whole wheat," including its supposedly superior sprouted form.
What is unique about the WGA glycoprotein is that it can do direct damage to the majority of tissues in your body without requiring a specific set of genetic susceptibilities or immune-mediated articulations.
This may explain why chronic inflammatory and degenerative conditions are endemic to wheat-consuming populations.
lectins are extremely small, resistant to breakdown by living systems, and tend to accumulate and become incorporated into tissues where they interfere with normal biological processes.”
