Re: I take the skin off my almonds. They’re high in lectins.

We don’t. Almond skins help absorb extra vitamin C.

There’s no way to COMPLETELY avoid plant and animal Weapons of Man’s Destruction.


We can’t avoid lectins, salicylates, tannins, oxalates, phytates, nitric oxide, melatonin, serotonin, etc.

For example, considering lectins alone …

acorn barnacle lectin, aggrecan, AIA (jacalin, aka jackfruit agglutinin), amaranth agglutinin, amelogenin (enamel-protein lectin), angiogenin (an inducer of angiogenesis), annexin-II, -III, -IV, -V, and -VI, arcelin, artocarpin, attractin, Australian tea tree agglutinin, avocado agglutinin, BanLec (banana lectin), barley lectin, BkG (bovine serum protein conglutinin), blue mussel sperm lectin, C-14 (a chicken lectin), C-16 (a chicken lectin), calnexin, calreticulin, CD23 (low affinity IgE receptor), CEL-IV (sea cucumber lectin), CGA (Japanese jackbean lectin), chickpea agglutinin, CLC (Charcot-Leyden crystal protein), CL-43 (bovine collectin-43), CL-L1 (nonsecreted type liver-1 collectin), CL-L2 (nonsecreted type liver-2 collectin), CL-P1 (membrane type placenta collectin), CMA (giant pumpkin agglutinin), CNX (calnexin), ConA (one of 70 known legume lectins), CPA (pumpkin lectin), CRT (calreticulin), CSL (cell-sealing lectin), croton lectin, DEC-205 (a C-type lectin from dendritic cells), DSA (Jimsonweed agglutinin), Dutch iris lectin, ebulin-f and ebulin-r (ricin-related nontoxic elderberry bark, leaf, and rhizome lectins), ECL (coral tree lectin), eel agglutinin, favin (broad bean agglutinin), FSL (fucose-specific lectin), galectin-1, -2, -3, -4, -5, -6, -7, -8, -9, and -10 (lysophospholipase), garden pea agglutinin, garden pea nodule lectin, garlic lectin, GBL (glucan-binding lectin), GNA (snowdrop lectin), GNL (peanut nodule lectin), GSL (false foxglove lectin), HL-3 human lectin, HL-13 human lectin, HL-29 (human lung lactosamine-binding protein), horseshoe crab factor C, Japanese wisteria agglutinin, JRL (jacalin-related lectin), Kidachi aloe agglutinin, LBP (laminin-binding protein), LCH (lentil agglutinin), leek agglutinin, lima bean agglutinin (phaseolunatin), limulin, litchi lectin, macrophage galactose-N- acetylgalactosamine specific lectin, mango tree agglutinin, MBP (mannan-binding protein, aka serum mannose-binding protein, mannan-binding lectin, MBL), ML-1 (mistletoe lectin), MMR (macrophage mannose receptor), mulberry leaf lectin, mung bean agglutinin, neurocan, NFA (bacterial nonfimbrial adhesin), Nigerian walnut agglutinin, nigrin-b (a ricin-related nontoxic elderberry bark, leaf, and rhizome lectin), onion agglutinin, orange peel fungus agglutinin, osage orange agglutinin, PFA (snail lectin), PHA (phytohemagglutinin, aka red kidney bean agglutinin), PHA-E (erythroagglutinating isolectin of PHA), PHA-L (leucoagglutinating isolectin of PHA), PNA (peanut root agglutinin), pokeweed isolectins, pokeweed mitogen, potato agglutinin, RCA-120, red marine algae agglutinin, rice agglutinin, ricin (the very toxic RNA-N-glycosidase), rye lectin, Saharan scorpion agglutinin, SAL (sialic acid specific lectin), sanfoin, SAP (serum amyloid protein), scarlet runner bean agglutinin, sea urchin egg lectin, E-selectin, L-selectin, P-selectin, shallot agglutinin, sieboldin-b (a ricin-related nontoxic elderberry bark, leaf, and rhizome lectin), siglec-1 (sialoadhesin from macrophages), siglec-2 (CD22 from B cells), siglec-3 (CD33), siglec-4 (MAG, aka myelin-associated glycoprotein), siglec-5 (from monocytes and neutrophils), siglec-6 (OB-BP1 from B cells and placental trophoblasts), siglec-7 (AIRM1 from NK cells and monocytes), siglec-8 (SAF-2 from eosinophils and mast cells), siglec-9 (from NK cells, monocytes, and neutrophils), siglec-10, SNA (a ricin-related nontoxic elderberry bark lectin), soybean agglutinin, SP-A (lung surfactant protein A), SP-D (lung surfactant protein D), spermadhesin, SSA (a ricin-related nontoxic elderberry bark lectin), tachylectin-1, -2, -3, -4, and -5 (all from the Japanese horseshoe crab), taro lectin, tulip lectins (e.g., TL, TxLC, TxLC-I, TxLM, TxLM-I, and TxLM-II), tomato agglutinin, tree tomato lectin, versican, vetch agglutinin, bitter vetch lectin, common vetch lectin, hairy vetch agglutinin, WGA (wheat germ agglutinin), white bryony agglutinin, wild cucumber lectin, winged pea agglutinin, ZMA (maize lectin), etc.


The life we eat — animal, mineral, or vegetable — hates us with a vengeance, so what’s a human to do but do our best to find the SWEET SPOT.

Taoists called the Sweet Spot the MIDDLE WAY.

    Hi Atom, what foods will give me potassium?

      It’s hard to avoid potassium if you eat fresh whole food.

      Oranges are an excellent source.
