I’m feeling a bit vindicated at the moment, over the whole “Lectin Free eating” idea.  But, it isn’t the idea itself that has me grinning, but a thought I remembered having as a kid.

If you were like me, your parents probably did two things: told you to take a multi-vitamin every day, and told you that drugs were bad.  That was probably the end of the similarity between us, because when I was a kid, my family got our vitamins from the local drug store.

I admit that this is very simplistic thinking, but to my childhood understanding, if drugs were bad, why were drug stores legal?  If vitamins look like drugs, why take them?  Shouldn’t people be able to get all the nutrition they need from the food they eat?

Well, it turns out that the “Lectin free eating” idea was a huge chunk of the missing data.  You see, if we never damaged our intestine, most of our standard health problems would probably never happen to us.  So, that 10 year old (me, a very long time ago) was right – we can get our nutrition from our food, at least as long as we’re not deliberately eating things that work against us.
