When speaking of whole, plant-based foods, we too often get lost in the weeds. We make pronouncements about theoretical health effects of substances that are mostly based on research studies of quantities much higher than those traditionally used. Unless a person has an allergy, which can happen with almost any food or substance, there should be no concern for such detailed effects, especially when consuming plant parts with all of its nutrients intact. We need to stay focused on the amazing health effects provided by whole foods that are plant-based.
