    It seems that lectins, combined with some pathogens, are bad news:

    Whenever i eat legume, grain i get stomach issue though i already soak them i dunno why. Theyre yummy though :(
    It could also caused by enzyme issue but i already take supplement.
    I read before lectin could cause GI problem and immune response.
    And legume harder to digest.

    Well Lectins are in virtually everything we eat, however I read before different types of lectin can cause a different reponse as well as being more potentially toxic, others being less harmful in moderation and actually necessary for a healthy functioning immune system. This is pretty interesting thanks for sharing!
