It is an interesting book and website that contains a lot of positive,sometimes amazing, testimonials... Do You think that those people are mostly blood type 0, who experience positive results ?

This book is all my mom talks about.  She quit preaching Dr. D to me several months ago and replaced it with this book.  It's all I ever hear about when I go visit.

As the highest percentage of the global population is still currently blood type O, and Os do best avoiding wheat in all its forms, I'd say that the possiblility is better than average. However, even though As and ABs can have sprouted wheat bread, I think the world would be much better off--independent of blood type--if the global production of wheat was drastically reduced and replaced with a variety of other dryland grains, e.g., amaranth, job's tears, millet, quinoa and such. (Minimize corn, too, except for its industrial uses, e.g., a renewable source for biodegradable plastics.) Not only does modern wheat impair the body's use of its inherent insulin, additionally, wheat germ agglutinin (WGA) does such an outstanding job of binding to cells and enhancing insulin absorption it's being looked at as an oral insulin delivery system (Abstract: Wheat germ agglutinin functionalized complexation hydrogels for oral insulin delivery.). There is also research showing that wheat appears to be able to upregulate 62 genes related to stress, cytokine-chemokine-mediated immunity and the interleukin pathway (Bagchi, Debasis, et al. Genomics, Proteomics and Metabolomics in Nutraceuticals and Functional Foods. San Francisco: Wiley-Blackwell, 2010).

I think a lot of A's and some B's also need to stay off wheat, it's pretty universal.  When I watch cooking shows, it's so much wheat!  I substitute where I can.  But Dr. D's work is on top of this
pretty much, while offering alternative grains if you eat them. :)

Type A's are advised to avoid wheat if weight loss is a goal. It seems most, if not all, would be better without standard processed wheat.

Well I think he has a point regarding modern wheat.

I get the worst stomach pains and gets really sick when I eat wheat (neutral)
but I can eat spelt ( superfood) and other ancient wheat types without any pains.

I think most people no matter blodtype could benefit from vary their grains
and not eat a diet where 80 -90 % of the grains are wheat,

The answer is always more complex than any one single thing.

Do You think meat products can contain hidden wheat ?
If so, why ?

Fast food restaurants routinely use wheat gluten (and soy, to a lesser degree) as 'filler' and 'enhancer' in ground beef and processed chicken goop (i.e., the stuff used to create unnatural chicken nugget shapes).

Why? ... it's all about the Benjamins. (:

Oops, just saw you're in Poland after I posted a reply. :)

"Benjamins" = One hundred dollar bills USD = money. And, I was referring to American fast food restaurants. I don't know if similar processing occurs in Poland, though.

Thanks, i guessed what Benjamins are either way :)

Yeah they probably use wheat in frankfurters, some of them can grow much larger after boiling. Some of them dont. Probably also in other processed meats, like sausages, ham.

Actually in my opinion, best meat is whole meat ( whole chicken or gouse), then u know they did not grind dog in a dog-house, into it.
