Notes:

Grains contain:

phytates-binds to minerals, may reduce digestibility of protein
protease or enzyme inhibitors - prevents the enzyme protease, impairing protein digestion
alkylrescorcinols
alpha-amylase inhitors
molecular-mimicking proteins
wheat germ agglutinin (lectin)
bioactive peptides
excitotoxins
gluten-celiac disease, schizophrenia, autism, epileptic seizures, multiple sclerosis, autoimmune disease, bowel disease, crohns disease, enteritis, swollen lymph glands, colitis
glutenin
gliadin

For Phytates:  soak; sour; ferment; roast; sprout (should also be soaked & cooked); consume with calcium, Vit A & C; have good gut flora more info here
