rice (white rice) is the safest grain to eat. if you are physically active, include it into your diet. it's basically pure starch.

All beans, properly soaked (even a two days soak if needed, for red kidney beans for example), and well cooked, are similar. That is because the lectins are similar though with varying amounts. If you want really light beans, make them into natto.... (more)

The reason I hear most for why grains are bad is that they contain anti nutrients. Grains are seeds and since it is disadvantageous for them to be eaten (they can't reproduce that way) they evolved to contain anti nutrients to stop animals from... (more)

If livestock fed a grain based diet have more stored n-6 PUFA, I would imagine this might also apply to humans fed a high-grain diet. Does anyone have any links to evidence for this? Thanks

Grain is high in omega-6s, it's not that it is promoting omega-6 storage. And it's more of a lack of omega-3s in the diet that causes low omega-3s. CAFO cows, pigs and chickens don't eat grass, so they don't get a lot of dietary omega-3s.

I can feel the ill effects from wheat and barley (except beer) within hours of eating them. Low mood, brain fog, etc. Beans, no problems, at least not immediate problems.
