PANDAS, is an abbreviation for Pediatric Autoimmune Neuropsychiatric Disorders Associated with Streptococcal (Infections.)
The term is used to describe a subset of children who usually have dramatic, "overnight" onset of symptoms of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), including motor or vocal tics, obsessions, and/or compulsions and/or tic disorders like Tourettes Syndrome.
The PANDAS disorder is an autoimmune problem that attacks the brain and if left untreated can cause permanent damage.
An extrapolation from this is if PANDAS causes OCD and Touretts behaviors then why couldn’t PANDAS also be linked to Autism? Since Strep is so prevalent in young children and PANDAS is caused by non symptomatic strep, it could be connected.
Following Eat Right For Your Type (your GenoType or SWAMI) is anti-inflammatory, anti-viral and anti-microbial in and of itself. This would give children that added protection against such a nasty disease.

Thomsen-Friedenreich-related carbohydrate antigens in normal adult human tissues: a systematic and comparative study.
Cao Y, Stosiek P, Springer GF, Karsten U.
Max Delbrück Centre for Molecular Medicine, Berlin-Buch, Germany.
A broad variety of normal human tissues were examined for the expression of Thomsen-Friedenreich (T) antigens… These antigens…were determined…by (a) lectin...
Staining with the lectins used...amaranthin and jacalin.
From our data it can be inferred that T, Tn are promising targets for a cancer vaccine.
While searching for a relationship between the Thomsen-Friedenreich and the Mesothelin proteins I found the above abstract that caught my eye. I’ve cut out most of the technical information that would make this harder to see.
The authors tested using staining, which is another term for binding.
The authors used the Jacalin protein from Jackfruit to bind or stain the T antigen just like Dr. D’Adamo mentioned in his cancer lecture.
The funny thing about the article is that it is mentioned that the T and Tn antigens are promising targets for a cancer vaccine…..WHAT?!!!
The Jacalin protein binds T and Tn cancer antigens - and they are looking for a vaccine?!!!
The Jacalin protein is the “vaccine!!!” It is right there in front of them. How can they not see this!
Any food derived protein that is used in staining is potentially the Holy Grail of cancer vaccines.
Most people think that in order to lose weight you must exercise like crazy.
I beg to differ.
If you are fairly observant like I am, you notice things like on most newer exercise machines that you have a display that shows you how many calories you are burning and how many of those calories are fat calories. Roughly speaking the difference between calories and fat calories is somewhere between 30 to 40%. In other words, if you burn 100 calories, the fat calories burned are 30 to 40. This is not a good ratio when you look at how much exercise it takes to burn 100 calories. Running 1 mile will burn approximately 125 to 150 calories and of that, 45-55 are fat calories.
Another thing not taken into consideration is that when you exercise you may burn of fat but you are also building muscle which weighs more than fat. Yes, in the long run the muscle will burn more calories but if we are going to count calories the only true way to lose weight is to use calorie restriction and Eating Right For Your Type.
A few months back I embarked on a mission to get back down to my normal warm weather weight of 180-185 lbs. I am happy to say that I have reached that goal. I used calorie restriction to accomplish this. When I got hungry I drank water. The one thing I have found out through this process is that I really don’t feel thirsty most of the time. After listening to Dr. D’Adamo’s lecture on Trehalose in which he explains that during nutrient excess, we humans don’t clean ourselves ( on a molecular level ) which is not good. During calorie restriction our cells operate better and use mis-folded proteins as energy instead of holding onto them causing more problems inside the cell which can lead to cancer and other diseases.
It’s nice to know that using calorie restriction, Trehalose Complex and ERFYT, I am super charging my body to clean itself and help avoid dis–ease.
I was looking at the ingredients on some Blue Diamond Roasted and Salted Almonds and saw something that got me thinking. On the back it showed that per serving there were:
5g total carbs – 3g of fiber = 2g net carbs.
Are food companies finally waking up to the benefits of keeping fiber in our foods?
I know these were just simple almond nuts but if this is any indication of the type of information food companies are paying attention too, we consumers and ERFYT ‘ers are going to benefit tremendously.
It’s almost been a month since my last post and progress has been great. I’m down 15 pounds and have another 10 pounds to go. I know my body will find its own ideal weight but I want to get down to 180 lbs before I run my 10th and final Bix 7 road race. Two years ago I signed up for what would have been my 10th and final Bix race but I hurt my right knee just a few days before the race. It took over a year after my surgery to be able to run pain free. The Bix 7 race is very demanding and there are a lot of people. I’ve become accustomed to the small amount of people who run a half or full marathon.
Since I have less cartilage between my right Femur and Tibia, I have to cut back on my longer/ harder runs anyway to save my knees.
I didn’t think I would lose weight so fast now that I’m 13 years older than when I first started ERFYT, but I’m not going to argue. My Hunter GenoType sure makes it easier.
