the kidney bean comes to mind, i seem to recall eating those things raw is a very bad idea (may even kill? dose dependent?).

There are some studies on pubmed on kidney beans and/or phytohaemagglutinin (a lectin found in plants, especially legumes), some on humans, some not.

Do an Advanced search of pubmed if interested to find and narrow down.

Paul Jaminet refs a few studies here (notes for Chapter 20: Almost-Grains: Legumes), look for phytohaemagglutinin and kidney bean, tho most seem to be rat studies.

You may also find some links to studies on these wiki pages,
