Default Paleo Diet and MS

I'm not sure how many people have seen this, but the interplay of diet and disease is pretty fascinating to me.

In the video, Loren Cordain is explaining the mechanisms behind multiple sclerosis and diet. It turns out that a leaky gut is the explanation (if my understanding of leaky gut is correct). Anyway, lectins pass through the gut and make our immune systems attack our own cells. He has some fairly compelling anecdotal evidence at the end of the lecture.

It turns out tomatoes are double bad because they contain lectins, just like soybeans. So they cause inflammation as well as auto immune disorders ...

Here is the video.

Here's another story on Leaky Gut

The body attacking itself is a sad state for anyone to be in....autoimmune disorders are scary and very destructive

Is Cordain actually talking about the tomato lectin now? That would be great, it always seemed to me like that lectin got pushed to the background before (or forgotten about).

I wonder how sensitive the tomato lectin is to high temperatures...

That's what it seems like from the lecture. He said they just had to add it to the list of foods people with MS should avoid, along with the usual list of suspects: grain, dairy and legumes.

Yes, those autoimmune disorders seem nasty.

Default How about crohn's?

I know they prescribe or are trying to prescribe MS meds for Crohn's patients and they definitely prescribe RA drugs for crohn's patients (remicade is and evil one). Given these are all auto-immune issues should the same rules apply? Ive definitely noticed a difference as a crohn's patient when i dont eat wheat or corn.
