Did a quick research on the negative health effects of grain and found this.
"Modern grains and modern disease
Increasing numbers of scientists and medical
professionals are beginning to make the
connection between modern wheat and chronic
digestive and inflammatory illnesses.
Inflammation is the body’s natural response to
pathogens and wounds, but persistent low grade
inflammation (LGI) or continual activation of
immune cells through incessant exposure to
triggers is associated with a host of diseases
including cardiovascular disease, metabolic
syndrome, cancer, autoimmune diseases,
Alzheimer’s disease, schizophrenia and
Inflammation in response to injury is good,
but a low continuous burn from constant
triggers can be deadly
Phytates – Phytates, also found in lesser
quantities in nuts and seeds, are not inherently
damaging, but they do bind to dietary minerals
and prevent their absorption. They’re not as
harmful as gluten and lectins if the rest of your
diet is mineral rich. To help break down
phytates, you can soak food in yogurt,
buttermilk, or water combined with lemon juice
Gluten – Gluten is a protein which enables bread
to rise by forming gas cells that hold carbon
dioxide during fermentation. Modern technology
has increased the amount in wheat so that it
now contains about 80% gluten.
Lectins – Lectins are so small and hard to digest
that they tend to bio-accumulate in your body.
They damage the gut lining which leads to leaky
gut and other disorders. Lectins also cause leptin
resistance, which means that your hunger signal
is suppressed and that you’ll be hungry even
when your body has had more than enough
calories. They’re resistant to heat and digestive
enzymes and can bind to almost all cell types,
causing damage to tissues and organs."
