Is cross contamination an issue at all with lectins? Can trace amounts of Avoids be harmful?
I have to be super careful with gluten CC so I was wondering if lectin CC is something I need to consider. I already feel obsessed enough with gluten so I am hoping it is not that big of a deal  
I did a search on this subject and didn't find anything so maybe I am just going a little overboard   But after feeling crummy for so long I want to do everything in my power to keep feeling good

yes cross contamination is something you want to avoid.

If something is harmful in any quantity, then it makes sense to avoid that thing as much as reasonably possible. There are limits to everything.

I do not worry about trace amounts on a rare basis, that is a decision you will have to make for yourself. The greater the exposure and the more often it happens, the greater the downside.

Ok, so then eating around the green pepper on my omelette was not a good thing. And just taking the cabbage and tomato slice out of the salad is not going to cut it either. I'll be sure to be more careful, and avoid the Avoids like I would gluten. Thank you.

I mean anything containing gluten!
or cross contaminated with anything containing gluten, like certain oats, etc.

Oh, I am very very careful with gluten! Not a speck of it in the house, not even in the shampoo ect. And we rarely eat out now because of the risk.
I was asking about things like the peppers in the omelette that I pushed to the side. Peppers are an avoid for me but they were cooked in with the rest of the veggies and I just ate around them and was not sure if that was a good idea.  
I guess I should have been more clear. I was asking about foods like peppers, tomato and cabbage. They have been in the salad and omelette that I  had recently and I just didn't eat them, but they had been touching what I did eat. So I guess I was asking is do all lectins rub off on or cross contaminate the foods they touch?

get your secretor and subtype tested first, that would help you make more targeted decisions!

it s called the complete serotype panel......

then you can be extra sure of what foods you need to avoid entirely.
