Dangerous Grains

“For the vast majority of mankind’s presence on this planet, he rarely if ever consumed cereal grains. With the exception of the last 10,000 years following the agricultural ‘revolution’, humans have existed as non-cereal-eating hunter-gatherers since the emergence of Homo erectus 1.7 million years ago… the inability of humans to physiologically overcome cereal grain anti-nutrients such as phytates, alkylresorcinols, protease inhibitors, and lectins is indicative of the evolutionary novelty of this food for our species.” Loren Cordain, Colorado State University

Science and logic is showing us that the consumption of grains goes against nature and we know what happens anytime we go against mother nature – we come off second best.
