Hello! Thanks for your wonderful information. I cannot find the grading of wheatgrass juice, though might guess that it would be like sprouted wheat. However, I do not want to jump to conclusions, so hope to hear from you. It is a growing alternative vitamin and mineral source in Australia, even being sold over the counter for city folk in $3.00 "shots." Best wishes, Jenny
Wheat grass juice is fine for all types! Here's Peter's column on Wheat Grass! enjoy!_
What about turnip greens? Turnips are listed but not turnip greens. What can you tell me about turnip greens? Don
Hi, Don! Can't tell you much; we have no rating for them, but my suspicion is that they are secretly Beneficial for all types. ;-) Like kale, they taste sweeter if picked just after first frost. Here's a lovely leafy page all about greens, for your reading pleasure!
We have just used the home blood test kits and have found that each of us have different blood types - not suprising for my husband (B positive)and myself (a positive), but also our children. My 13-year old daughter is O positive and my 10-year old son is AB negative. I know that my mother is 0 positive. Is it possible that our blood tests are inaccurate or could you let us know where to get more information about this? Thank you. Valerie
Hi, Valerie! It is absolutely possible that your kids would make up the other two types of your 4-type family!! Here's how it happened. In the following table, Mom's two genes are shown down the left-hand edge, in green. Dad's two genes are shown in purple across the top. The possible blood types of offspring are in the middle, in bold:
You & your husband, as you see, both have a recessive O gene. You two could have kids of any blood type! Sorry you "drew" the other two types rather than A or B, but it certainly makes things interesting, eh? Also, since your Mom was an O, we know your Dad was
either an A or an AB, since you had to get that A gene from him. Your mother had only O genes to contribute, hence you're an AO. I hope this saves you money you might have spent on re-testing... and that it comforts everyone about the mysterious ABO's of those kids! :-D
Hi, I need to know if Taro which is a vegetable can be eaten by O's. I don't find it anywhere on any of the lists. It is kind of like a potato or a sweet potato or a root type vegetable. Thank you Robin
Hi, Robin ~ Use TYPEbase 3® our in-house searchable database of ABO-food compatibility, if you have questions about food status. I'm afraid that particular item is an avoid for Os and AB nonsecretors. For everyone else, it's a neutral.
I am blood type A and I realize I cannot have any dairy products. I am confused because yogurt is neutral. Is there a specific kind of yogurt I can have, or am I able to have yogurt with dairy products in it. genevieve
The yogurt in the type A food lists is cow milk yogurt. The neutral status applies to any yogurt made with any animal's milk. Hope this helps!
Please could you tell me if live yogourt is good for me as I eat a lot of it. My blood type is O but I don't know which secretor I am yet. I cannot find the information anywhere although I have been trying for ages. I WOULD REALLY APPRECIATE YOUR REPLY/ANSWER GREATLY. Many thanks. Linda
Hello, Linda! I'm sorry to say that yogurt is an avoid for all type Os, whether secretors or nonsecretors. Try other cultured foods, such as cultured vegetables, and take a good probiotic (PolyFlora-O is available on our site). The benefits Os seek through eating yogurt for can easily be duplicated with neutral or beneficial cultured foods, and the detriments of dairy can then be avoided.
Hi! What about these popular green superfood drinks with alfalfa grass, spirulina, chlorella and barley grass, etc. (among other ingredients)? Seems like a good thing, but is it? Thanks, Julie
:-) Yes, at first glance they seem like good things. :-) You didn't mention your blood type, so I can't discuss ingredients or other concerns. Instead, I'll just say that every commercial green drink formulation I've seen contains avoids for at least one type, usually all types. The Harmonia Deluxe product specifically designed for ALL types is the only one I've ever seen that's fine for everyone. It's available in the Store at this site. Another thing in its favor... it tastes wonderful! :-D
That's it for another round of potpourri... keep those lovely messages coming in! thank you, everyone!
