These is quite a bit on info in the Paleo realm that talks about the toxicity of peanuts and legumes. They are generally to be avoided when approaching this lifestyle.

And yes, I did recall the A2 conversation, but was unsure about it's exact contents.

Peanuts are in reality a legume and should be avoided. Other than a bad fatty acid profile, they are one of the most common food allergen, are loaded with antinutrients, high in lectins and are a source of aflatoxin, a known carcinogen.

Thyroid Function

The thyroid is a gland mainly responsible for regulating the body's metabolism. If its function is impaired, it can lead to hypothyroidism, a condition characterized by weight gain, fatigue and depression. Many foods can interfere with thyroid function such as... peanuts and peanut butter.

Alfatoxins

Alfatoxins constitute a toxic metabolite produced by certain fungi, which are microorganisms like molds that mainly grow in or on peanuts, corn and cottonseeds. Alfatoxins are carcinogenic, which means that they are capable of causing or promoting cancer. Alfatoxins levels tend to increase with the shelf life of peanuts or peanut-containing foods. The USDA tests for levels of alfatoxins in foods and allows low levels as the FDA believes that eating small amounts of alfatoxins does not cause health problems. However, considering the lack of data with long-term studies evaluating the impact of exposure to alfatoxins from peanuts over a lifetime, Paleo dieters are encouraged to avoid this legume.

Lectins

Grains and legumes contain lectin, a glycoprotein substance able to bind with the gut wall and alter its permeability to enter the bloodstream. Lectins found in peanuts may, therefore, be associated with gastrointestinal problems such as Crohn's disease, celiac disease, colitis and irritable bowel syndrome, as well as allergies and autoimmune diseases.
