THE HEALTHY INGREDIENT HARMING OUR GUTS ACCORDING TO A HEART SURGEON

In Food & Health

It seems official guidelines as to what is and isn’t healthy is permanently changing. Ten years ago, everyone was obsessed with reducing their fat intake and supermarket chains were brimming with low-fat products.

Now, however, sugar has replaced fat as public enemy number one, and we’ve realised that certain fats – those found in avocado, nuts and olive oil, for example – are actually good for us. But now a heart surgeon has spoken out to explain that lots of plenty of nutritious foods are not, in fact, 100 per cent healthy.

Cardiologist, heart surgeon, and autoimmune disease expert Steven Gundry says that often the most nutrient-packed foods are the ones causing people digestion issues. In an article for Mind Body Green, Gundry explains that there’s one particular plant protein creating problems for our guts: lectin.

“These tiny proteins live inside certain plants and act as a defense mechanism by making their predator ill when eaten,” he wrote. “I think they play a huge role in America’s health crisis.”Lectins are found in foods such as whole wheat flour, cashews, legumes, aubergines, corn, brown rice, tomatoes, and sunflower seeds – so yes, lots of foods that are generally considered healthy.
