Lectins in Potato, Tomato, Barley, Rye, Rice Prevent Wt Loss ?

avoid these for loss of visceral fat, less DM2, CVDz
Mercola is saying that these foods have "similar properties to wheat"
they contain chitin-binding lectins which act similarly to wheat lectin (WGA)
chitins = n-acetyl-glucosamine in long polymers (where are these? on nerve cells?)
WGA and these foods bind them
sprouted wheat contains the most WGA and also BA's (benzoxazinoids, toxic)
he's getting his info from greenmedinfo

consult his site for links to studies: http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2011/07/05/other-nonwheat-grains-can-also-hurt-your-health.aspx
