I am often asked this question: 

Q.  Why can’t we eat any beans?

A.  Lectin content

First, Lectin is a plant protien, found in legumes, wheat and other items.   The simplest explanation it is a nutrient blocker.  Lectin not only hamper the absorption of necessary nutrients it acts as a burglar in the night.  They force the gut lining open, thus creating a host of possible problems including cancers and auto immune disorders.  For more information click here.

Other symptoms of Lectin toxicity:

  • arthritis, both rheumatoid and osteoarthritis;
  • allergy;
  • asthma;
  • high cholesterol;
  • atherosclerosis;
  • congestive heart failure;
  • high blood pressure;
  • diabetes;
  • low blood sugar;
  • hyperinsulinemia;
  • chronic fatigue;
  • fibromyalgia;
  • all forms of IBS, Crohn’s, colitis, celiac;
  • chronic candida, repeated gut pathogen infections;
  • malabsorption syndromes;
  • failure to thrive;
  • autoimmune diseases such as thyroiditis, lupus, MS, Parkinson’s;
  • dementia, Alzheimer’s;
  • autism;
  • Schizophrenia;
  • osteoporosis;
  • cancer, several types including breast;
  • hypercortisolemia and hypocortisolemia;
  • adrenal insufficiency;
  • post viral syndrome;
  • post traumatic stress syndrome;
  • post polio syndrome;
  • obesity;
    BUT… you can eat these, green beans.  Yes, they are a legume but the they are ediable raw you don’t have to cook them to eat them.  So eat up!
