It is my opinion that the contribution of Dr. Peter D'Adamo's Blood Type work to medical science is of a monumental nature.

If you agree with that, please take the opportunity to tell us, on this thread, one reason you do. I say "one", because many have a whole laundry list. Try to think in larger terms and encapsulate/summarize your overall opinion.

I'll start.

Four blood types: Genetic markers proven to be associated with four different types of human organism, each with its own "patterns of health", tendencies for disease, organ/system strengths and weaknesses, statistical likelihoods of certain reactions, and each with its own optimal fueling (diet), activities/lifestyle, and therapies.
This is important because many doctors are beginning to get wise to there being different approaches required for different patients, but they don't know why, or which genetic clue can offer them entrée into a differentiating system of actual and far-seeing benefit. The system can expedite workup of differential diagnoses, treatment trials, improve lifestyle understanding and nutrition plans, etc.
Regular folks, for our part, can learn why this rather than that diet or supplement or exercise plan "works for" us. For starters.

When the above is tweaked with the understanding of Secretor Status, in the mainstream, I think you're going to see even more improved numbers when it comes to morbidity and mortality.

Thanks, Lola.

This is my contribution toward affirmation of this important work - the Blood Type Diet - apparently being dissed elsewhere in the Forum.
Thought some positivity would be a good idea.  
If you're gonna run with a ball, why not do it with the right one -- the reason we're here?

The changes in our as well as our friend's health status, not to mention those one the board cannot be disputed. I prefer to not be experimented on by well meaning professionals who are only to happy to write scripts for medication. Some I believe are good short term, but if it can be avoided for life, I say : "Why not?". Let food be thy medicine is a good motto to adopt and Peter D'Adamo is a breath of fresh air for all who strive to be well!

This is why I advocate licensing of ND's in all 50 states!   Dr. D's research would be disseminated a lot faster.. Plus I could invite him to give a Grand Rounds in my medical school which would be awesome.   Bet cha' didn't know I am the Pediatric Grand Rounds Coodinator did cha Dr. D ?

Yes and slowly they come around to testing this or that.. They call it anything but BTD.. They listen to graphs on cancer and allergies to dairy.. but more then that is way to much.

One reason BTD rocks.. I KNOW why OTHERS are still ill.. sinuus, stomach, sleepyness, constipation ... you name it, it all could be cured with BTD..


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!

Just because it works...and because Dr. D is constantly open to refining and expanding  his work.

Swami being an individual diet is ahead of a lot of the one size fits all diets out in the world.

And, I was told by my aunt that a hospital told the parents of a young boy there was nothing more they could do for him and recommended they take him home and strictly follow the blood type diet. They did, he recovered.  That a hospital and may be more than one have begun to recognise that the Blood type diet might be the answer is pretty powerful to me.

Okay, you said ONE reason.  I can go ya one better.  As you well know, I can and often do go on and on and ON about the BTD/GTD diets, but believe it or not, I can also be quite succinct when commanded to do so (like on Twitter, which only allows 140 characters!   ).  I can sum up what is great to me about the BTD/GTD diets in one word:

Balance.

Lin

1. What hospital is that?
2. It sounds like it was a particular person in the hospital who suggested that. Wonder who.
3. I'm wondering what was wrong with the boy.
4. Is this something your aunt read somewhere?

I don't know, Lin. It's "pretty powerful to" you, but without the answers to any of these questions, it's hearsay -too anecdotal to impress the scientific community, IMO.
It's possible that someone in the hospital had heard of the diet - it's possible that the boy had the flu, or an allergy.

I add: But, yes, here & there, people are definitely showing signs of catching on!

BTD works simply because it's logical. You don't put diesel in your gasoline car, why put the wrong foods in your body?

I suppose "outside the box" thinking was ingrained in me at a very young age. My twelve year old brother was brought home from the hospital after my parents were told that he was going to die because there was nothing else they could do for him. My dad was able to carry him on a pillow he was so atrophied.  A small town doctor put him on herbals and after a while he began to recover. He grew up to be a very handsome man over six feet tall who wowed every woman he met. He was the oldest child in our family. His recovery influenced my life dramatically. This was pure magic to me. So when I see results from taking the advice of a man who thinks outside of the box all the time, I'm not shy at all about telling the news.

In my family some say eating low fat and calorie restricted and many grain pretzels with a cocktail is the way to maintain good health. This might work for a B but for me being O, I would eat the wrapping paper and glass on the table. -- At least I KNOW not to argue with that 'balanced' thinking...

I follow the O diet because it worked for me despite some residual belly issues. I followed with less oil then is suggested (by habit,) yet recently I started to supplement with oil twice or trice at snack time, and so far, all the residual issues have gone by the wayside. I wish I had listened to the suggested guidelines even more way long ago.  This diet allows for compliance and for learning.

I say it is good because it is safe!  Even if it doesn't work for some, the food lists are basically safe unless one has a big allergy.
Of course, I think it works!

it gets terribly on my nerves having taken notice that Wiki in Switzerland disagrees still in not validy taking notice of the proofs of Dr. D's work. They still insists of being not scientificly agreed...

Please give me a glimps to come along and write to them about truth....

Lets get a petition up to invite powers to be to look at BTD>>>>

There is a way to do it.. and we have enough contacts do accomplish this easy.. no?

Look at the 475 post Lola made in her Garland thread for Dr D.. I mean what more for proof...  

I would be willing to print all of that thread in book form and submit with Petition to the above.. but only after she has 500.

Noble prize  


Good luck~

Who Chooses the Nobel Peace Prize Winners?

The Nobel Peace Prize winner is chosen by the Norwegian Nobel Committee, which is make up of five fiercely-independent members. Since 1936, government officials have been prohibited from sitting on the committee to avoid any hints that the Committee may be influenced by the current political climate in Norway.
How Do You Get Nominated to Be a Nobel Peace Prize Winner?

You can't nominate yourself or others for the prize, and you can't campaign to be chosen the winner. In fact, you won't even know if you've been nominated – according to an article in The Associated Press, Common Misconceptions about the Nobel Peace Prize, records of nominees can be kept sealed for up to 50 years.
According to the Nobel Peace Prize website, nominees are only accepted from a select few people, including members of national governments, members of the Permanent Court of Arbitration and of the International Court of Justice at the Hague, former Nobel Peace Prize winners, and so on. Organizations can be nominated, as well as individuals.

How Are Nobel Peace Prize Winners Chosen?

The goal of the Nobel Peace Prize is to award people who "have done the most or the best work for fraternity between nations, for the abolition or reduction of standing armies and for the holding and promotion of peace congresses."
Oftentimes, the winners are people who have not completed their work toward peace, but who are at a critical juncture in their work and who need the support that winning the Nobel Peace Prize brings.

To pick the winners, the Norwegian Nobel Committee considers all nominees, and selects a "short list" of around five to 20 people for further review. Those candidates are then reviewed with advice from the Committee's permanent advisors and other experts.

The Committee attempts to reach a unanimous vote through discussions and debates. If a unanimous decision can't be reached by the deadline at the beginning of October, a majority vote will suffice to name the Nobel Peace Prize winner.

The Nobel Peace Prize has been politicized....Dr. D'Adamo's work will not be recognized because the powers at be don't wont every day people healthy and free from disease.  They instead want every day people sick, diseased, and dependent on their system so that they can exercise more control over their lives.

I would agree that this knowledge is amazing and with it out people will never achieve their potential. So D'Adamo's work will allow people to achieve their potential in life and for this he will not receive proper recognition in a system whose goal is to keep people from achieving their potential.

I disagree. I think it is monumental towards humans, and sure I'd give it a Noble Prize in a heart beat.

Dr. D'Adamo actually uses extensive volumes of work done by other people to formulate his work. He's done a few minor experiments and such, but isn't contributing to science like he is categorizing and bringing relevance to it.
