Interesting that these articles still shy away from acknowledging Dr D's early warnings of Lectins. but at least they are now acknowledging they cause problems. one in the eye for the nay sayers etc.

a sample from the article (not translated into the queens english ;)

"From Gluten to Grains

Before you consider the possibility, or the likelihood, that you have gluten sensitivity and alter your diet, there is still more to the story.  It turns out that gluten, the common term for several different proteins in wheat, rye, barley, and oats, may not be the only cause of the adverse health effects from these foods.  Grains contain molecules called lectins.  For instance, wheat contains wheat germ agglutinin (WGA) and it has been proposed that celiac disease and gluten sensitivity results from a gluten-lectin combination effect.  Indeed, many celiac patients also test positive for antibodies against WGA.[22]   Yet, lectins may cause health problems even from grains that lack gluten.  Grain, after all, is a broad term that refers to food seeds and includes grasses and legumes among other things.  Wheat, rye, barley, oats, sorghum, millet, maize, corn, soybean, rice, peanut, and most beans fall under the category of "grains."  While lectins are prevalent in nearly all plants and animals, grains contain very high concentrations of lectins.  Additionally, genetic modification of some grains has intentionally increased their lectin concentration in order to improve pest resistance.  Therefore, if lectins cause health problems, we would expect those problems to be most strongly associated with grain consumption.  However, studies have shown that wheat germ agglutinin (WGA) can have adverse effects on the intestinal cells even at extremely low  "nanomolar" concentrations "

I have emailed them on many occasions politely suggesting they acknowledge Dr D's work.

Always the optimist that they will see the light ;)

One line stick s out in this article that needs a little more detail.

"Unfortunately, sprouted grains, which contain the greatest amount of these toxins, have been promoted as a health food!!"
