So where do lectins come in? Lectins increase the permeability of the intestinal tract and allow valuable microbes to spill out .

The reason we have this risk today is that whole grain has become so popular as a health food. For centuries societies removed the bran, or the part containing the lectin. But now that whole grain is touted as much more healthy, people are consuming more lectin as a result.
