It really rocks my rocker when something such as strawberries or cod liver oil is apparently a poisonous avoid, but it doesn't say why. Gee thanks for that.

Strawberries contain a lectin-- Here is something on lectins but the internet is filled with info if you do a search.

Sometimes Type Base tells you:

[url=Strawberries]http://www.dadamo.com/typebase4/depictor5.pl?404[/url]

Sometimes it doesn't:

[url=Cod Liver Oil]http://www.dadamo.com/typebase4/depictor5.pl?4[/url]

The Encyclopedia another possible resource for answering such questions.  It doesn't, however, answer the question about Cod Liver Oil.  Likely the answer is contamination or omega 3/6 balance.

The answer might also be due to the ratio of vitamin D to vitamin A. Since Os tend to be very good at converting beta carotene into vitamin A, we may not need the A from CLO, and its consumption might make us need more D.

Does anybody know the reason apples are an avoid for O nonnies?

Do not know why it is an avoid for O nonsecretors but not for O secretors--but I presumed that the desirable qualities of the apple did not out weigh the problems associated with all the sugars for nonsecretors.

Other possible issues:

  • Lots of pesticide residues--O nonsecretors might be more sensitive to these
  • High Arsenic levels in apples
  • Apples contain a hemmaglutinating lectin
  • Apples contain reactive polysaccharide that is a blood group O immunotoxin

I thought the arsenic was in the seeds? And as I commented/enquired before - what about organic apples?

So are A-Type Explorers to assume that we are immune to arsenic.......?
Actually, Dr. D. automatically expects that we are going to try to get organic fruits if at all possible. And I can't imagine eating the seed.............

All foods have nutrients and anti-nutrients/toxins in them. The question is whether the "good points" about a specific food outweigh the "bad points" of a food for a particular individual. It depends on how much you need the nutrients it provides, and how sensitive you are to the problems the food poses.

I'm wondering about apples specifically because I know they're a good source of malic acid, which is supposed to be healing for fibromyalgia. I'm wondering if maybe SWAMI got this one food wrong for me, because it didn't take every factor into account.

I really doubt that the concentration is adequate to do any harm as long as you stay within the portion / frequency guidelines for your plan...  It isn't like you're taking a teaspoon of straight arsenic when you eat an apple...  Even water will kill you if you get too much, but I'm sure that you aren't going to stop all intake of it!

And this thing about Vitamin d vs A, seems to be bullocks, because I have Keratosis Pilaris, which is a Vitamin A, and C deficiency, and due to where I live Vitamin D was hard to get, but I have been getting loads of it! If you ask me, Os have a terrible time converting Vitamin A

So I guess O's don't have the same "resistance" as the A's to arsenic. Shudder.  But, to tell you the truth, I'm not wild about eating an apple with a "high" content of arsenic. Are you?

Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!

You can pretty much assume that a toxin will have a negative impact with immunity on some level, whether that means weakening it, turning it up too high, etc.  

It is like puzzle pieces fitting together.  When the micro makeup of the food does not fit nice and neat with the micro makeup of the immune system of the type, it messes stuff up and confuses the immune system.
