Now that I've run my SWAMI with the abbreviated report off, I see that "foods considered high in pesticide residue (and, presumably, GMO) receive strong de-emphasis".

I am VERY aware of the pesticide/GMO problem and have memorized the EWG's pesticide and GMO shopping lists.  I buy ONLY organic except for the 3 or 4 items at the very bottom of the list (onions, avocados, asparagus, and mangoes) which I also buy organic if they're available.  Everything else I will not buy if I cannot find organic.

I would much rather my SWAMI did not exclude foods for this reason because I manage that aspect of my diet myself.  How do I get it to ignore that parameter?

That might be why apples, cabbage, cauliflower and cucumbers are avoids for me but does not explain why peaches are a superfood -- they have one of the highest pesticide load of any food!

Currently in SWAMI Xpress the settings for what foods are emphasized and deemphasized is set automatically--based on the data you put in.  

There is not a direct method in SWAMI Xpress to override the software's determination that you need this setting.

So you would have to go back and change all the data on the data intake to see which item or items are causing SWAMI to determine that you need to avoid these foods.

It is possible that SWAMI XP2 will allow you to override what SWAMI Xpress has deemphasized. But I do not know that it will include such a setting.

no, that is not the reason why those are avoids

I would be much more interested in knowing my secretor status to finetune my choices yet more

My secretor test is being processed.

I have run my SWAMI both ways, with the secretor switch on and off, and loaded the results into a spreadsheet where I compared them and eliminated any foods whose values are different.  I will not eat those foods until I get the results of the test.  I am currently eating only foods which are diamonds on both results.

The questions I have been asking refer to foods that do not change with secretor status.
