Cardiologist Dr. Steven Gundry writes about a plant-based protein called lectin. Lectins are found not only in grains like wheat many fruits, vegetables, nuts, beans, and some dairy products. These proteins, which are found in the seeds, grains, skins, rinds, and leaves of plants, are designed by nature to protect them from predators including humans. Once ingested, they incite a kind of chemical warfare in our bodies, causing inflammatory reactions that can lead to weight gain and serious health conditions.
