They're on my black dot list, but my health has been improving because of them.
ERRATA CORRECTED FROM FIRST POST: >In the TypeBase Value lists, O's can have them as neutrals<
Someone else told me they are not recommended for Explorers or Gatherers. I am parts Warrior and Teacher in addition to Explorer. But...here they are on my black dot list, and their vitamin/mineral content is badly needed by me at this point in their natural form. My dad was definitely an O, and either Explorer or Gatherer.
Is this one of those crazy instances where A+Non Explorer meets shellfish, just like O Types meet "Wild Boar" and can go "yum, healthy?!"

Sometimes you can eat a 'dot' once but not keep eating it, so maybe try the oysters once, but wait a long time till the next time you eat them.

I never cared for them. If I'm gonna cheat on seafood, I'll go with crab, lobster, shrimp, or scallops. But, I'm in compliance-mode right now and really benefiting/healing from it to even consider cheating at this moment in my life.
first, explorers are not all created equally across the blood types. foods an o explorer can eat are not going to be the same as an a explorer. as for black dots I have come to think of them as a seasonal thing. I like peaches (black dot for me) and I may go crazy on them during their season for a month or two but sense I tire of them after I have gotten what ever I needed out of them I really only eat them about every six to 11 months. so if they are listed as black dots and you can handle them you may need those nutrients right now and you may loss interest in them later. if you do don't keep pressing, move on to another food. I also have them as black dots but I can't have shellfish in general unless I plan to stay close to the toilet so enjoy!
nothing to do? who has that!? swami made me an explorer! married to an AB+ mom to a B+ boy
