Yes, the lycopene factor outweighs the agglutination concern in that case. Tomato paste contains far more lycopene than raw tomatoes do, and other foods contain even greater percentages. Follow this link to a list of more high-lycopene foods. :-)
Shea, I’m sorry but I can’t find your other questions... There was a column on questions from a type O woman with your name -- you can find it by using the search term “wedding,” but my questions list doesn't have anything else from a "Shea." Could you send your queries again? Also, if you have both type A and type B genes, you are type AB. If I’m misunderstanding you, please explain a little more about what the doctor or lab told you about your blood type. As far as I know, you'd follow the AB diet. L-glutamine can help for the sugar cravings; generally, they go away over time as your eating habits move away from refined sugars and as your body has a chance to adapt to protein-metabolism. It's tough at first, but gets easier pretty quickly!!
Thanks, Blaine ~ you're very kind! Boron is a bone-builder, one of the trace elements that helps the calcium do its job of mineralizing new bone growth. Other helpers in this regard are selenium, molybdenum, and vanadium... you'll find them all in your Phytocal-A. :-)
Yes, ground ginger is the dried, powdered ginger root. Same thing as to the diet, slightly different properties in cooking. Please let us know when your cookbook is ready for viewing! and thanks for writing!!
At my local farmers’ market last Wednesday was a greens & peppers grower who had about 30 different kinds of peppers for sale. About half looked familiar, and the other half... well.... One variety resembled a tiny, translucent, pale yellow pea ~ its neighbor was a wrinkly blackish-purple thing not an inch long, something like a berry-picker’s thumbprint. Peppers come in every color of the rainbow except blue, and cover the taste range from bite-into-it-like-an-apple to SCREAM FOR MERCY! Happily, the BTD rule here is simple: all types of peppers, whether sweet or hot, of whatever color, shape or size, are avoids for type A secretors and neutral for A nonsecretors. ;->
I hope you're all enjoying the Fall weather (or Spring to our buddies Down Under). Thanks to all of you who keep writing and keep me learning here. ;-D
