If you met my dad you would eat those words!  He knows quite a bit about blood types and how they react to agents of different types (natural and artificial).

It sounds like you work poorly educated doctors.  Not sure if they are cardio surgeons, but there are quite a few who are the way you say.  My father was not a typical protoscientist.  You should respect physicians who work with blood and guts every day, and see people die on an operating table because they do not take care of themselves or were born with a weak or heart defect.  

All i know is my father would give dietary counseling, tell them how smoking and drinking were causing heart problems, and saved many lives.  However, it is a surgeons job to fix the problem that is caused.  It is up to the patient to make lifestyle changes.  A dr. can only educate a patient.

Quoted from Easy E
My friend from my fraternity passed away in his sleep from a heart attack at age 29.  He was blood type O and a hunter i believe.  Guy nearly single handedly pulled us out of going down financially, reestablished relations with rich alums that stopped supporting us, and was going to get married a month from the day he died.
He died on april fools day.  He was a high strung guy and jumpy all the time, but a mastermind and very caring person, very well liked.

Does anyone know if A explorers have a lower heart risk?  It isn't a risk mentioned in the book.


Easy E, I am so sorry to hear about your friend.  What a tragedy.  

I posted quite a lot of information on a thread about cholesterol regarding what Dr. D says about heart disease and the different blood types.  Here is the link to the thread:  

http://www.dadamo.com/cgi-bin/Blah/Blah.pl?m-1310353743/s-57/#num57

The post in which I quote Dr. D from LR4YT and his book on Cardiovascular Disease is post # 62 out of 65.  There is a lot of information, so I didn't want to have to type it again     I hope this answers some of your questions.  If you have other questions, I would be happy to look up info for you.  I didn't see anything in the GTD book about Explorers and heart disease.

Just like there are good people and bad people, there are great doctors and not so great doctors.  Because of my family history, I have a cardiologist.  She is wonderful and very smart, but definitely wanted me to go on a statin. She is also a neighbor and friend.  We had a bit of an argument about it, but it is my body and I make the final decision.  She accepted my decision but I am not sure how happy she is about it.

Formerly, she was a cardiac surgeon but decided not to practice surgery anymore because she has four kids.  She has seen and done it all and I KNOW she only has my best interest at heart.  Your dad sounds like a wonderful guy.  I think sometimes the older doctors are better because they have learned so much "on the job" that medical school can not possibly teach a practitioner.

I think the patient needs to advocate for themselves in every circumstance that they can.  However, I am sure that as a cardiac surgeon, many of the patients your dad encountered were not in that position.  They needed life saving surgery immediately. This was true of my siblings, who all needed bypass surgery.  I am grateful to their cardiac surgeons and the entire medical staff that was responsible for saving their lives!!!

Thats very true!  Doctors and medical teams saved my life when i was 19 after a car wreck.  The doctors have many patients and the ortho was concerned mainly with fixing my broken leg and hip.  An intern cared for me and i got a staph infection in the incision.  It isn't perfect holistic wellness.  I took a lot of antibiotics and drugs i needed to live at the time.  I was bedridden for weeks.  

Now i use Dr. D's stuff to have good health and take care of myself.  For awhile after i just said screw it and partied and stopped exercising and stuff.  So we are blessed to have traditional medical doctors with their schooling, and drs. like dr. D with their knowledge!!  I just feel andrea aw sec expects too much of physicians, who know far more than most about health.

The pills and surgery saved my life, eating right for my type would not have mended my bones, prevented an infection in a foot long incision in my hip, etc.

Sure your dad was great, medicine has changed quite a bit, insurance companies do not pay so volume is what they are after no time to talk to patients and yes I work with cardio surgeons.


Just tried again to tell an MD that maybe the fecal transplant would be more effective if the donor and the receiver where the same blood type, shrugged his shoulders and walked away. Now what would it hurt for them to make a small step?

Makes sense to me.  I'm sure that is pretty frustrating for you.

What is mainstream today is not always the best answer to things i think.  These doctors have a job to save lives, not use preventative health care.  They teach it to patients, but patients are the ones responsible.  If a blood match was needed for what you say, they would have observed it in the thousands upon thousands of texts in medical literature.

It is great to try to awaken people's curiosity, but there is a time and place for it.  Blood type matching is not the answer to all health problems, and to think so is short sighted and could be fatal in the end.

I think to really spread the knowledge, it isn't good to be too pushy about it.  I have been guilty of this myself!

I've posted this on here before in the Journal Club and Literature Review forum section about research showing why blood-type-o's have less heart attacks than the other blood types as it has to do with type-o's producing an enzyme that offers better protection even when plaque is present in the arterial wall.
