I have a hard time taking anybody seriously when there's a typo in the blog.

"a complete lack of scientific evidence to support the central idea, namely that our body's immune system reacts differently to different foods, and tht those reactions are determined by the various antigens specific to the blood types."

It's one thing to mistype something in a chatty message board post, but when you call yourself a professional, shouldn't the things you publish (even online) look professional?

I read Dr. D 's response to that blog. Well, all I can say is, NOBODY could ever convince me to stop this wonderful way of eating. To go back to the way I was???? To tell me that this diet is dangerous?? NEVER!


I love dogs and turtles, bird watching, canoeing, cooking for friends and family, knitting, reading, and DR. D's diets!

Wonderful post that was written in response to Dr. D's blog. I had to reprint it here.




Quoted Text
Yolanda Bassi says:
December 24, 2010 at 10:18 am
On being a schmuck:

.. I encountered a person in his 70s who is blaming his parents for dealing with the then child in cruel and unusual ways, because he was the subject of ill health, early in life, and they dragged the child from doctor to doctor. When I suggested that somewhere this person made a ‘choice’ to ‘see things through the eyes of a ‘victim’, rather then accepting, that the parents where doing what ever they thought was good, the now adult became almost deranged, super angry at me, for not sympathizing with the pain and suffering experienced ever since!

Certainly I understand that certain illnesses, are miserable, cruel and require unusual measures, until one finds out that they don’t work. In the case of someone following BTD there is a chance, a good chance, that stupid opinionated utterances would disappear from the persons need to see him or her SELF as ‘victimized’ and might actually start to feel better.

The same for someone’s critique; when the person writing about the Blood Type Diet has no ‘command’ to follow it and spouts of on its in-validity, then one has to question that persons mental health.

By following the ‘diet’ mental health might set in and create ‘understanding’ of ones motives and then create choices for or against old ideas or the diet. The choice is ones own. One can suffer needing ‘therapy’ of re-assurances lasting a lifetime, or say: “Enough! I leave the trash of ill feelings on the side of the road and walk away!” One can get up in the morning and train the mind to say: He, She, They, are all wrong and deserve my negative attention -forever- thus causing mental instability within the conflict of ones own mind and body.. Or one can say; there are more important things to do, then to cloud my sunshiny day with trash, and keep walking in sunlight leaving the trash to its own ‘time, place and space.

As adults we can do that, as people voicing opinions, we really need to look at what is ‘a schmuck’. According to some words I read by (Google) George Clooney:

“Before they could kill me on Batman & Robin, I said, ‘It’s a bad film, and I’m the worst thing in it.’ You try to defend an indefensible position, you’ll look like a schmuck. The guys I dig don’t do that. Look at Winston Churchill. He said, ‘These are our shortcomings. Now let’s get past it ..”

The choices are ours. We can build or tear down. Thankfully, the body knows the difference and accommodates itself to experiments, and some actually work IF ONE CHOOSES to DO something to alter the most inner part of each cell. One can either slither around with a reptilian brain, or rise up and become a healthy powerful person by adapting to choices and stick by them – long enough to see if they work. D’Adamo’s work is monumental and anyone choosing to actually follow through to learn and comprehend and CHOOSE to act on the learning, is better of for it. Even those lacking fortitude to stick with it benefit. At least now they know why they may feel miserable. And that is almost more important! It saves money, time and lives.

But, if all people would follow that logic, then all mental health specialists might be out of work – not a good thing, because ‘mindless’ critics who spout out words for the sake of hearing themselves clack clack away, they may need such therapists for a time or for life! The choices we create are of our own choosing, like it was said above: The guys I dig don’t do that… … ‘These are our shortcomings. Now let’s get past it,’ ..

Hip, hip, hurrah for this so-called diet and lifestyle! It works for me and many others just fine.
Thanks Dr. D.

I didn't read his stuff, sounds like a "child" looking for attention. When all anyone can do is bash others ,they're self esteem is so low that's the only way they can pick themselves up. I don't have time to read his garbage.

Because I know the difference diet and being nourished has made for me, I often wonder when people are dwelling in the negative muck and mire what they are eating. Usually well nourished people that I have met have a healthier mindset as well. Which came first, the chicken or the egg?

Thanks for sharing that response Andrea. Interesting message there if you care to look.

Wow. You're a tough customer. There are many bloggers here, and we all, including Peter D'Adamo, have made typos. When I take up arms against someone for his ideas, I'll make sure there's enough in the ideas themselves that merits my rebuttal. I won't resort to ad hominem attacks or proofreading criticisms, because if I did -- I'd have to reject the work of someone like Dr. D'Adamo, whose books themselves aren't as perfect as you'd like them.

The link that man provided to another website had a bunch of lies or half lies in it.

People that make the claims Dr. D'Adamo bases all of this out of his opinion of the first blood type and early human diets are, well, stupid. He states that "perhaps this is why it works" essentially. It has nothing to do with the facts like blood type O and B have much more IAP. Even if there were no records of the past beyond a hundred years but we had our information since, today... the same conclusions on diet would of been formulated.

No where does Dr. D'adamo recommend Type A consume zero meat. He only recommends specific meat as well as non-red in general. There is not one instance of entire food group cutting unless you count red meat as its own group like that other criticism article awhile back haha. Yet the link used says what could be construed that way, "type o should eliminate grains". Yes they should eliminate wheat and rye, etc, but not grains entirely. That is why in english you specify "eliminate all grains". However guising that he means all grains you could claim danger to the diet. Totally a means to an ends that is inappropriate, yes I know, but people practice it.

You know what else is funny, One legit criticism is maybe that when people switch to eating higher quality home cooked meals they are seeing remission of problems and it has nothing to do with the BTD/GTD. However I would like to point out most people willing to try naturalpathic approaches already eat vegetables and cook their own food! They are the type of people that like having gardens, eating fresh, etc!

Anyways at least we got to read one of the silliest criticisms of Dr. D'Adamo that made wild claims about Japanese stuff. I mean it is so bad that I even wonder if it is a joke to raise moral on the board here. The Japanese should be offended that some dude thinks they are a target-able audience based on the color scheme, marketing, and wording of D'Adamo's website. They are so susceptible to the layout and content of this website that Japanese text is unnecessary.

I think we should comment on my blog. Commenting on their blog only strengthens their presence vis a vis the search engines. Better it should display zero comments.

Leanne, if your husband has a response, I'd be happy to quote him in my blog.

I'll point him to your blog.  When I told him you'd named it n=1 he cracked up.  He chuckled about it for a long time (and had to explain to me why it was funny).

N is the initial component.

1 is a mechanism to prevent failure to component.

The expression is usually N+1. However the problem is that it is often redundant. Like an example on Wikipedia states that a device sends information on one given path at a time. However the +1 used in order to increase the resiliency of component working is to provide an extra path if the active path is unavailable for use. It makes no sense because the component would never be looking for another path since it only sends on one at a time, but the extra one is available.

N=1 would be a comment in such that the component is the solution to the problem of resiliency.

Sooo....

If component is human the point is that the human is the answer to improving resiliency (BT and genetics). That is opposed to +1 which could be considered pharmaceuticals that often cause as many problems as they fix (redundancy).
