Grains are bad for you!?!

I've been reading some of the more "fringe" discussions about grains and their overall negative impact on health. A lot of them are pseudoscience rantings, but there does seem to be (forgive me) some wheat amongst the chaff. I do have gluten sensitive and celiac friends, so understand and respect their reasons for avoiding grains... I guess I just wonder what you all think. Are grains bad for you in general? Do you have personal experience or real science to support?

Thought this topic particularly appropriate as Kenji is going vegan for the month.
