Lectin is a protein that serves as a natural insecticide with a strong affinity for carbohydrates. Found on uncooked rice and beans, this protein is one of the top 10 causes of food poisoning and can lead to nausea, diarrhea, and vomiting when eaten in abundance. This arises from lectin's prevention of the repair of gastrointestinal cells that are damaged when eating.
The Bacillus cereus bacterium is found in a variety of foods, with different strains associated with a host of potential health benefits and negative side effects. Some strains of this bacterium compete with other bacteria in the digestive system, serving as a probiotic and reducing the amount of potentially harmful bacteria such as salmonella.
