I've been reading all of Dr. D's books backwards and forewards trying to figure out stuff about geneology, blood types, and foods. One of the things on my Swami Explorer profile mentioned that certained foods rich in lactose and galactose are being restricted for me. I read on my husband's bottle of Ensure that it was not suitable for folks who could not have lactose or galactose. I didn't know what galactose was, so I looked it up and found out that galactosemia is a rare genetic metabolic disorder, though common in Irish Travelers and possibly their descendants, where the body is unable to use the simple sugar, galactos. Then I read an article on Yahoo today about methemoglobinemia, a rare blood disorder, a genetic condition, where the hemoglobin is unable to carry enough oxygen and the skin turns blue. Many descendants of the Fugates of Kentucky have this condition. Most live to be old, despite the condition. I am becomming more and more facinated with Dr. D's research on genetics.

I know my granddaughter was blue when she was born, but the doctor put her on oxygen and I watched through the window as she turned color. But these people stayed blue all their lives, some dark blue, and their blood was brown. The article was posted a while ago but I can't find it now. There were a lot of comments, some by descendants. The gene is pretty much diluted now because of marriages to non-carriers. I think the original settler was from France. I wonder about their blood type and genotype. (This has nothing to do with too much colloidal silver, btw). Lola - thanks for the info. Very intriguing.
