Quoted from Kumar
Hi here are some tips from LR4YT (my own language). Hope it will help you:

1. higher degree of foreign bacteria invasion in the system
2. more adherence of lectins in food to digestive tissues
3. higher incidence of syndrome X or insulin resistance
4. higher concentration of bad intestinal bacteria
5. higher rate of blood clotting
6. higher suscesptibility to candida type infections
7. lower immune resistance
8. higher suscesptibility to dental cavities
9. higher suscesptibility to ulcer-causing bacteria
10. more risk of inflamatory bowel problem
11. higher risk of respiratory virus infections
12. higher incidence of autoimmune diseases
13. alcoholic tendency among drinkers


What is it about nonnies that make them more susceptible to alcoholism? Is it that our gut lining just lets the alcohol go right to our heads and that allows alcohol to have a "nicer" effect on us? I've been curious about this for awhile.

our lack of antigens might also bring about a lack of antigen memory

alcohol gets us everytime, and some just like it more!

Not likely.  I seem to remember the idiotic behavior that lead to me being drunk as a student.  The memory certainly keeps me from drinking much now.  Except the (Swami, Geno Harmonic) beneficial combination of red wine and plum.

When I was looking through the medical abstracts I found one that suggested to dentists that the level of dental caries could be used to predict whether the patient was a secretor.  The correlation must be high in order to get that flow of information.  There is little point in a predictor of Nonnieness that is not accurate in even 5% of the population since about 15% are nonnies.  That would lead to an error rate of potentially one quarter of nonnies being mislabelled secretors.  It would be less than pragmatic to use that.

I think the dental correlation is a good strong indicator, if that is what you are looking for.

Good question Sharon.

There is a gene linked with alcoholism.  http://www.webmd.com/mental-health/news/20040526/researchers-identify-alcoholism-gene

I've seen news articles about studies saying that alcoholism is associated with non-secretorhood especially in blood type A.  Here are some studies I could find http://www.bmj.com/cgi/content/abstract/4/5681/457 There are lots more about that but some you need to purchase.

This study showed some other factors other than nonniehood associated with alcholism: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/6346123

Dr D has researched and put it all together so well: http://drpeterjdadamo.com/wiki/wiki.pl/Alcoholism_and_Secretor_Status

Not only are the genes related, alcohol has protective effects on non-secretors:
Quoted Text
Alcoholism has been associated with the Non-secretor blood type. On the positive side, alcohol consumption appears to exert a protective effect on lung function and to lower the risk of heart disease more in Non-secretors than in Secretors. The key principle with the use of alcohol is for Non-secretors (and everybody actually) is moderation. http://www.dadamo.com/program_advanced_secretor.htm


Hey if you see the list of health problems that nonnies are prone too, no wonder we like to have a drink.

I can vouch for having non-secretor status affect alocoholism--my family has both. It's very hard, as a recovering alcoholic, to be told that "moderation is the key", since true alcoholics know that this is not possible. For a true alcoholic, abstinence is the ONLY way. And as time also teaches us, I have only seen people gain true sobriety through a surrender of their will as opposed to the brute force of willpower.
That being said, it frustrates me to see the advice be given to use alcohol in moderation for its beneficial affect in the same paragraph that explains the possibility of being alcoholic.
There is realy no "becoming" alcholic--but a "being"-you always carry the gene, it's a matter of time (unless you are never introduced to it).
All joking aside, alcoholics don't drink because they like to drink. It's more of a compulsion. Do you breathe because you like to? I think it is almost that automatic.
Sorry if this sounds like a rant, but sometimes it hurts to have people joke about alcoholism, since it is by far the thing that has been most difficult in my life and that of my family.
I mean, it is after all a disease--you don't hear people cracking jokes about cancer.

Sorry, no offence meant by my jokes Cleo.  There is alcoholism in my family too and I have lived with a few and you're right it really is not a joke but a serious illness.  

Strength and kudos to you on your journey.  Congratulations on taking the high road which often is the hardest.

Thanks. It wasn't directed at you. It was more of a commentary on the way it's viewed in society. It's  often you have low morals because you're an alocholic or boy I need a drink. I think the way Dr. D'Adamo approaches it...I don't know. I know this isn't the main topic of this site, but it seems odd to say some subgroup of people may be alcoholic/have alcoholic tendencies and then follow that with "so moderation is best". Any health professional should know that that is a recipe for disaster--not advice to be heeded.

I am excited that maybe there will be a way to "fix" this gene/gene sequence in the future. I have a fear of passing it onto my children.

On that note--Symbi, your daughter is precious. SO cute!

Be well!

Re: alcoholism, my generation (my siblings and I) are the first in two generations to drink.  On both sides of the family there are/were alcoholics, but in my direct line, my grandparents on both side and my parents were totally against alcohol.  I wonder if that tendency toward alcoholism was genetically "turned off" by total abstinence for two generations and now we're able to enjoy it in moderation.

Quoted from TJ
Maybe two of the nonnie weaknesses can cancel out: yeasts have a natural defense that kills bacteria (think antibiotics).  Yeasts produce alcohol as a waste product, which is not harmful to teeth like lactic acid, which is the waste product of most bacteria.  If you have oral candidiasis, I think you should have less bacteria, so maybe that imparts some protection for your teeth.  Personally, I've never had a cavity, but I do have that whitish gunk on my tongue.  


Whoa, whoa, whoa.  Yeast produces alcohol as a waste product?  Is that why I always feel slightly tipsy and dizzy?  Yeast?  You've given me something to think about.  And lactic acid....maybe that's part of the reason for the muscle aches for all those years.  Time to do another saliva test, Ribbit.

I hadn't ever read that yeast can produce alcohol...  I had read that the yeast waste is very hard to digest and will cause gas, etc...

I have heard of instances where fermenting starches - sugars, grains, root veggies - caused alcohol buildup in the gut, later absorbed into the bloodstream which mimics drunkenness...

tipsy and dizzy - I get that quite often when I'm detoxing heavily...  I thought it was some effect in the inner ear caused by the nerve/toxin interaction.  My ears ring almost constantly, but the intensity and tone change.  I think the dizziness is another effect of that...

My ears ring occasionally, but it's always the same tone and intensity.  It comes and goes, but comes in clusters.  I really don't eat much sugar or grain.  I guess I eat brown rice just about every day, but I don't eat grains at every meal.  I will keep this in mind.

It's such a part of me I don't usually think to mention it as a problem, but it is.

Ribbit, ABJoe, do you know nothing about how fermented drinks are made?

In my first year in university I lived in, what could only be called, the home brewing side of the floor.  Bitter, stout (my speciality), larger, fruit wines and mead all were produced or available.  Computer, electronic, and mechanical engineers are resourceful and practical producers.

Cleo1978, you do not need to apologize to anyone for your reactions, or yourself!  You are certainly reasonable to hope about what may be done with research in the future.  There is an attempt planned to catalogue the human epigenome.  Although the money would be more usefully and practically spent by the IfHI, that is not a politically viable alternative for the industrial-governmental complex.

P.S. Has anyone else noticed the juxtaposition of the words "Nonnie" and "typical" with out a "not" or a "never" in the title of this thread?

Any health professional should know that that is a recipe for disaster--not advice to be heeded.
I think Dr D states it that way because there are degrees of tolerance... Sure I realise that true recovering alcoholics cannot touch a drink, at all, but those of us that have alcoholism in the family but who, through circumstances, (maybe it can skip a generation or two ) have never become one, can afford it "in moderation"??!! besides he cannot "tell" people what to do - more strongly suggest it...
Re the generational thing - my Great Grandfather was a (drink the entire pay packet on the way home type) alco, and my daughter, if she gets onto white wine cannot go without drinking till she is verbally abusive...every day...so sensibly now sticks to red wine (in moderation, as it puts her to sleep) But the two generations in between are not affected (as far as I know)??!!
However my B (ex?) DiL (could be a nonnie) has been an alcoholic since her late 20's...

For me hangovers from red and white wine (with no mixing) are substantially different (or were about 20 years ago).

There are major differences in red and white wines.  Red wine gives me migraines (I get those) but not white.  They don't really know why: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_wine_headache.  

I feel so much better since not drinking at all lately.  Rather keep my liver in tip top shape and feel the increased energy.

Red grape juice every now and then is good enough for me to get some of those good antioxidants..

(maybe it can skip a generation or two )
Interesting. I would have to see some evidence to support that, but interesting theory. I wonder: if in the theory that if a couple of generations stop drinking, and so the next can enjoy drinks in moderation--I wonder if that "reactivates" the alco gene, thus efffectively causing your child to become alcoholic. In that context, it almost seems it wouldn't be worth it to "enjoy in moderation".

I come from a family of 8, not all of us have inherited the alco gene. It's probably 3 out of 8, roughly 40%. So, I don't know that it's a matter of skipping a generation as a rule, or just the randomness that accounts for some getting it, some not.

When I used to drink red wine, it made me somewhat ill. Could be the tannins? And like any good alcoholic, I tried to switch what I drank, when I drank, and finally with whom I drank. I also think you either have it-alcoholis- or you don't. I think the degree to which it affects you is dependent on environmental factors, your personality, horoscope, sex...basically anything that makes you unique. But in terms of having the gene expressed, I think it's more of a black/white you do/you don't thing. Some function their whole lives as "highly-functioning alcoholics", and can be quite successful (depending on how you measure success). I've seen others, like myself, who are more emotional, and maybe more true to themselves who have had to surrender.

Possum: In terms of Dr D. "! besides he cannot "tell" people what to do - more strongly suggest it...". I reread my post, and I never said he tells us what to do, although if you want to have a semantic showdown, he does "instruct" us on what is best for us, which I would categorize at "telling"; and not "what to do" as you say, but "what is best"--as I said in my post. I am thoroughly grateful for what he has done--he is an amazing mind and compassionate soul. But, I take issue with the idea that "moderation" is key-as a universal. And, as I stated before, we who are truly alcoholic do not see degrees, i.e. "she's a little alcoholic, just a touch alcoholic, etc".

I wish your daughter the best. I have found that the only "sensible" thing to do if you are the type of person who becomes verbally abusive whilst drinking is not to switch to a different beverage (poison, if you will), but to stop drinking and gain some recovery with support. I really wish her a better road than I had! Nice she has you for support!
