F 5 ft 3. HW: 196 lbs. Primal SW (May 2011): 182 lbs (42% BF)... W June '12: 160 lbs (29% BF) (UK size 12, US size 8). GW: ~24% BF - have ditched the scales til I fit into a pair of UK size 10 bootcut jeans. Currently aligning towards 'The Perfect Health Diet' having swapped some fat for potatoes.
Not from the grain, but a parasitic mould that can grow on it. Rare today and unheard of in developed countries, as it is easy to check the plant for ergot growing on it. It is how LSD is made, AFAIK. Ergot poisoning is deadly, and is suspected of being behind witchcraft allegations in the past.
You are very unlikely to get ergot poisoning from rye bread today, or any flour. One contaminated slice would probably be enough, anyway.

I have not had gluten products on any regular basis since Sept 2005 an fl so much better for it. My doctor speculates I am coeliac but I don't want the invasive testing so I'll just eat as if I am. All my symptoms point to it. And Bill, I believe you are right in saying " am starting to suspect that once you stop eating wheat you lose the knack, and it has a more serious effect on you if you go back. ". This is my experience too - there is a particular 4 grain bread roll that I love but lately, after a long time off grains, I tried one and it did not agree with me AT ALL!. A most unpleasant experience
