Quoted from chud


So are you denying the possibility that regularly consuming a certain food (an avoid) over time may put you at risk of developing a certain disease?  If so, it would seem that you are denying the possibility of avoids all together.



I'm not at all denying the relationship between regularly consuming a food and the risk of disease.
If I didn't believe in the whole concept of BTD/GTD, I wouldn't be such a strict follower of the diet.

However, except in the case of allergies and those rare instances when eating a food immediately kills you, the relationship between eating that food and developing a certain disease is not 1-on-1, meaning: not every type B consuming chicken will develop a stroke, not all A's eating red meat will develop colon cancer.
That's not to say there's no correlation and that's not to say there's not a higher risk for B's and stroke or A's and colon cancer.

But as I said earlier, I agree with san j that we should be careful in how we put this risk into words.

Dr D
Chicken, or Galus galus lectin, has a specificity for certain forms of the sugar galactose, with a preference for galactose in the liver. In the ABO diets it was as simple as that; galactose (or in reality the galactose-fucose epitope) is the B antigen so stay away from chicken. Once you add secretor information, the expression data changes; secretors have more blood type expression, non-secretors, less. Sick livers have more ABO expression than healthy ones. Adding the genotype data yields more expression data; certain factors, such as D2/D4 are pleiotropic (one gene influences multiple phenotypic traits) with ABO.  Thus the evolution of BTD-GTD-SWAMi is in part the quest for the degree of predictable lectin sensitivity in a person. Finally, by the time you get to SWAMi you are not even really analyzing single foods very much. The idea of the  'dot avoid' was to help refine things further: careful reintroduction should be considered.
