I need your help in the following.

I was challenged with a simple question which I myself can't answer or cope with. How come that grains which are basic foods of whole nations, like corn and wheat, are actually avoids for the majority of mankind?

Personally I just avoid the question... In my view, the condition of mankind only reinforces the BTD findings. All the same I'll be grateful if someone would help me out with a proper answer and/or references. I am sure this had been dealt with a lot in the past.

Thank you!

Corn is only recently the basic food of whole nations. Wheat has dominated some groups of people for quite a while but modern wheat has been spread over the last many decades, traditional grains for many peoples are rice, quinoa et al. Rye and buckwheat used to be much more common, as well as other varieties.

Saying something broad and defining about human history based on the only last century (give or take) is a fairly myopic view in my opinion.

corn and wheat have been modified throughout the years.
the wheat our ancestors knew was precisely spelt and other forms, and corn has gone through similar mutations.

genetic engineering of crops is leading to chronic allergies and disease.
I speak for my country here, where corn is a staple but so is diabetes......

Generally, over the last century, the food supply has become much less varied than it had been anytime in the past. Where great-grandparents regularly ate turnips, parsnips, greens and other seasonal vegetables, people in my generation all too often live off of refined flour products, 3 meals a day, 7 days a week, and very few vegetables. Currently there is a worldwide trend toward both obesity and malnutrition, so don't count on statistics of what everyone else eats to determine what is healthy.

Wheat and corn have calories and protein, they can keep people alive and fuel population growth, but they don't promote long-term health.

yep,yep,yep Looolaaa is sooo right and also Lloyd ...something to add ......O's do have problems in digesting plantproteins; but since just those two plants where modifyed to pop those plantproteins up, (first it was naturally about 8 or 9% and now it is a variation betweenn 15 and 18% ) that means it enforced the inflammations triggers ....so.....as we can observe corn & wheat  is just a neutral for A secretors ....... this isn't much left...huh.......As Peter once wrote, our bodies act likewise our ancestors did, but our psyche and mind have to speed up to gain a bit of the todays' resorts ....(after 35 we might to be called *exhausted* coz of our way of life.......... ) but we aren't made for such a time runner-bummer   .....so please don't get a little toe in.... but look at them from a distant  & safe place

I found this:

Quoted from text
The Seattle Times

Eating by blood type

by Mary Elizabeth Cronin
Seattle Times staff reporter
...
At the back of the book, D'Adamo answers common questions such as: Why avoid foods that are the staple of your ethnic diet but do not fit your blood type? Do what you can, D'Adamo responds.

Of course. Grains are the cheapest commodity, therefore inevitable for sheer survival of whole nations. That is, I put the question upside down, and claim that surviving of whole nations on grains is not by free choice, or rather by the free choice of the powerful.

"let them eat cake"

"bread and circus"

there are many examples of that in history.  Unfortunately, if a leader said "let them eat twinkies" today, I don't think there would be much of an uprising.

and now you can add, that ''surviving of whole nations on GE grains is not by free choice, or rather by the free choice of the powerful.'', unfortunately!

For a long time now, as a consequence of choosing BTD, I've been claiming that feeding people with grains and carbs and GMO and white flour and sugar is a means to ensure the permanence of ignorance and slavery.

However, as per the ancient Hebrew literature of the Sages, in the Feast that God will make for the Righteous after the Judgement Day wild ox and whale (huge mammals) shall be served!!! together with reserved wine. Moreover, these particular dishes shall be made of the original animals created in the 6 days of Creation. There's a Yiddish song which tells about it. That figures.
