*heavy sigh* Believe what you want.

I completely agree that modern hunter-gatherer tribes are able to do just fine without grains. I do not believe and have not claimed that grains are essential. The claim that I have a problem with is that *only* diets with minimal grains are healthy, and that *all* grains should be avoided by *all* people.
