What Is Wrong With Corn, Soy, Dairy, Legumes...?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

After reading a lot of the topics here, I have noticed a lot of people saying they have gone off, or suggesting others go off, corn, soy, dairy, and legumes...

Dairy I can understand because of lactose intolerance, but it seems even people who are not intolerant are giving it up. And why corn, soy, and legumes..?

I actually thought legumes (isn't that like lentils?) were supposed to be very good for you...?

:unsure:

All the things you mention can be very good for you - if you are not intolerant of them, that is. Many of us do develop other food intolerances, particularly before we are able to heal our leaky guts (caused by gluten) which let larger particles of other food protein into the blood than would normally pass through the intestinal barrier.

Dairy is pasteurized thus potentially causing problems for many. When I switched to raw dairy I no longer had problems. That's just me though. I have good cows and a good farmer. Not saying that will be the case for everyone. It is expensive to get raw dairy but worth it for me. It has helped tremendously.

Corn and soy are so heavily GMO now that there are many potential problems there as well. Soy is estrogenic and there are implications for difficulty there as well. It is the GMO component that is of most concern to me. Somewhere in the neighborhood of 80% of all con and in excess of 92% of soy in this country are GMO. This allows for the application of up to 86% more herbicide by farmers and is residual in the product. This can effect the stomach and lining of the intestines.. already a problem for those if us with celiac. Gut permeability issues also heighten this as a problem.

Legumes are high in lectins and those with gut permeability issues want to decrease gut permeability thus the need to avoid legumes.

From personal experience I can say that all grains cause problems for me. Cutting them all out was a necessary step to my regaining a considerable amount of good health and gut function. It also makes compliance to gluten-free much easier.

All, of course, IMHO.
