Beans: Why some people can digest and others not?

I am wondering, why some people can digest beans while others (like me, sad to say) cannot? I already understand that beans contain lectins, phytates and antinutrients that can cause gas, bloating etc. But some people seem to have no problems with them. In fact I have friends who make hummus out of raw (soaked, but not cooked!) garbanzos and do just fine. Whereas I soak my beans with vinegar, rinse, and cook them in the pressure cooker TWICE and I still get massive gas. What is so different in our guts to account for such varied reactions? And, by the way, my friend who eats the raw hummus gets major gut cramps from eating meat, whereas I do great with meat. A gut report, please...
