Yes. That's why beans and grains should be eaten cooked.

Beans are recommended by every mainstream health organization, and by every mainstream vegetarian/vegan organization.

The American Diabetes Association recommends eating beans: http://www.diabetes.org/food-and-fit...uperfoods.html

The American Heart Association recommends eating beans: https://recipes.heart.org/Articles/1...ns-and-Legumes

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (the world's largest association of Registered Dietitians) recommends eating beans: http://www.eatright.org/resource/hea...ation-and-diet

The Vegan Society recommends eating beans: https://www.vegansociety.com/resourc...ican-bean-rice

The Vegetarian Resource Group recommends eating beans: http://www.vrg.org/nutrition/protein.php

Vegan Outreach recommends eating beans: http://veganhealth.org/articles/intro



Please forgive; I'm not saying that a properly-planned raw vegan diet is unhealthy. I am correcting the misconception, prevalent among some raw foodists, that beans and grains are unhealthy.

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.

How? Unless you are dumpster diving often, I don't see how it would be cheaper than eating cooked foods considering you have to eat a lot to get enough calories.

One well-researched book about raw vegan nutrition is "Becoming Raw", by Brenda Davis and Vesanto Melina: https://www.amazon.com/Becoming-Raw-.../dp/1570672385 .

Davis and Melina are both long-time vegan Registered Dietitians. This book is well-substantiated, with hundreds of citations of peer-reviewed studies. The authors explain the nutrition, the benefits, and the potential pitfalls of raw vegan diets.
