I think there may be some enzyme involved - I'm afraid I can't find the reference, but if you google it a bit, you'll probably find some facts.
    Huh, I did not know that. That's pretty cool. Can I blame my hated for lima beans on it too?

      I'm pouty-faced. The shrimp, Avacado, Red onion, cilantro, lime and olive oil salad I made tonight was awesome!

        My family is quite appalled that I'm not a fan of cilantro, as it's used in a lot of hispanic cooking. I just can't really stand the taste of it.

          I am not going to give up on cilantro. I use it once in a while. I'm sure it did not make me fat. I think my DNA is just fine.

              Eh, I figure, look at all the bad things insulin can do, but at the same time the creek you're up without a paddle if you make none. Most biological things have good and bad aspects.
