So, in an effort to "do as I say and not as I do", I was looking around at PubMed a little.  Did a search for wheat lectin and came up with this article
Wheat Germ Agglutinin Functionalized Complexation Hydrogels for Oral Insulin Delivery.

Quoted Text
From these studies, it is concluded that the addition of the WGA on the microparticles produces a specific adhesion to carbohydrate-containing surfaces and that P(MAA-g-EG) WGA shows great promise as an oral insulin delivery system.

This makes sense to me (OK, not ALL of it makes sense to me - like what P(MAA-g-EG) is even though they tell you the actual whole name of it in the article-I assume is has something to do with insulin but that isn't the point!), given the information already out there regarding WGA and O's in that it mimics insulin (right?).  

My overall wonder is whether it is really will be beneficial, or if it might contribute more to diabetes - maybe in type O's in particular. It makes me nervous that they are adding a molecule that is so unhealthy for SO many people to a medicine.  And yes, it is just early research, but it could be real some day.  And thank goodness we won't need it... BTD and all.
