I follow @DrEades on Twitter - he's ALWAYS linking to awesome studies on these things. Usually you can save the PDF, or at times I just copy & paste the text with source into Word and save in my Primal folder.

Maybe this has something to do with the fact that if your diet includes large amounts of legumes then you're going to likely have less grains? They're both carbs, and who eats lentils with their bread? Or lentils with their pasta?
