    I would, and do avoid all grains, Bread, pasta and all baked goods. Grains have gluten and mycotoxins that hurt most bodies and one of the problems is that they impair the uptake of minerals. You can test this by not having them and watch the withdrawl that happens to you. Headache, nervous, pain and fatigue. Shows the level of addiction. You don't need them and they are hurting your good health. Good Luck.

      People get addicted to water too. See what happens when you stop drinking it: dry-mouth, anxiety, even death. Shows the level of addiction.

      Your Mycotoxin theory seems to have some spores in it. From Wikipeida: "Mycotoxins can appear in the food chain as a result of fungal infection of crops, either by being eaten directly by humans, or by being used as livestock feed. Mycotoxins greatly resist decomposition or being broken down in digestion, so they remain in the food chain in meat and dairy products. Even temperature treatments, such as cooking and freezing, do not destroy mycotoxins."

      So, if you cut out meat, dairy and the grains you think are so bad....you can eat fruits and vegetables and have some serious problems getting protein, iron and a host of minerals. At least your coffin will be light and easy to carry I guess...

      I forgot to mention, that since meat-animals are concentrators of calories and eat way more plant food to produce the equivalent amount of calories as if a human simply ate plant food, you're concentrating mycotoxins in meat the same way an Eagle concentrates DDT in it's body by being a top-of-the-chain food predator. So you'll be better off getting your protein from plants than animals if you're going to use "avoid mycotoxins" as your dietary guide.

    it is hard to avoid grains if you are a vegetarian. grains provide the much needed carbs to a vegetarian diet.

    "Whole grain" and "multi-grain" are not "interchangeable."

    NEVER avoid all grains, because carbs and fiber are absolutely necessary to a balanced diet. If gluten intolerance is a problem, oatmeal and brown rice are whole grains lacking it.
