Is there anything good about being a non secretor?

This is what I read.

It looks like I, a non secretor, am at a disadvantage to a myriad of ailments.

Ok, you know us too well, Andrea!       Those of us who don't give up our unhealthy lifestyles until we're brought to our knees!  

Claire, you might find some camaraderie over on THIS THREAD about non-secretors.

"Nonnies" might end up being healthier because they have to watch certain things more.
But for nonnie Os, they get to eat avocados!!
There are others on here that will give you more answers. Wait a little & they will post.  Help is on the way!

For me yes I largely feel so... the affects of it and me being a child and not knowing any better are holding me back from everything I want and feel is important to me.

I think Candida and bad diet have. However be a nonnie puts me in the situation where recovery is much harder. There are some things that do not recover and would not of happened as well.

From an economic stand point not really as far as I can tell, well the opposition is a little much with candida not backing off.

Yes, to this answer, at times.   Understanding nonnieness now has really helped.

Ah how I love my nonnie friends because they don't fit the mold.  I had a teacher that told us to delight in differences.
  I love how they think!

Is it common for nonnies to look younger than their ages?  Or was Tomatilla just joking?  Most people are very surprised when they find out how "old" I am.

Well people tend to under estimate my age also but then I also come from a long life family. I also was never a smoker, I understand that tends to age people....or maybe prevent them from aging.

If Nonniehood is so negative in health terms why are Explorers (mainly nonnies) said to come from areas where people live the longest; Basque, Caucuses mountains?  Perhaps when Dr. D' Adamo has not entirely figured out all of nonnie differences.

Why do nonnies exist?  Because of the ever-changing evolution of man, man is now evolving faster than ever and becoming more unique as time goes on.  Diversity is increasing as population increases and now with the globalisation and mobilisation of man.  

Why do they live the longest?
Just a theory, the annoying low-grade health problems like candida overgrowth, bacterial overgrowth, for instance, make nonnies more aware of their health.  With self-awareness, over time they learn to avoid food that is bad for them such as those containing too much sugar.

Increased sensory awareness, e.g sense of smell, and reactions to foods as above, makes them more sensitive to what they take in, leading to overall better health.  They are more likely to be super tasters (from what I have seen) and lower in digestive enzymes to process fat, so select less fatty or bitter food.  They have better hearts from eating less fat.  Also the reduced risk of cancer which is one of the biggest killers of older people.

Blah blah alright, just a theory

Well yogurt use, which my father swears by, is endemic in the Balkans, Caucuses.  Also vinticulture started in the Caucuses. Perhaps the local food culture is acctualy close to an ideal Explorer (read majority of Nonnies) diet. I don't know enough of Basque culture.  Do they eat much lamb?

Wow I had no idea I had so much influence!

I just edited my siggie yesterday when I did my SWAMI-X - I think I'll put that back in again.
