5 questions:
1.) I love oatmeal (organic) -is this ok for O's?

2.) Does it matter whether one is O positive or O negative?

3.) Explain in layman's terms what secretor versus non-secretor?

4.) Is there a product of Dr. D's for cellular regeneration?

5.) I had asked about spirulina for O's and was told no and that harmonia
was recommended. Is there also a chlorella on the market that someone
can mention other than a Dr. D's product list that would be very good?

For all foods use rating in typebase.

If you do not know your secretor status, there is an 80% chance you are a secretor.

There are slight differences based on Rh factor.

These are not a concern in many of the books.  Follow the guidance in the book you are using to determine whetehr you should factor this into your diet choices.

Quoted Text
Secretors: In a simplified sense, a secretor is defined as a person who secretes their blood type antigens into body fluids and secretions like the saliva in your mouth, the mucus in your digestive tract and respiratory cavities, etc.

Non-Secretors: A non-secretor on the other hand puts little to none of their blood type into these same fluids.

As a general rule, in the US about 15-20% of the population are non-secretors with the remaining 80-85% being secretors. Aside from the physical implications centering around whether you have blood type antigens in your body fluids or not, the secretor genetics have additional significance through the effects of gene linkage: In other words, the outcome of your secretor genetics 'links' to other seemingly unrelated genes and influences their function.

Your secretor status drastically alters the carbohydrates present in your body fluids and secretions in addition to several important aspects of your metabolism and resistance. These factors include the activity of an enzyme called intestinal alkaline phosphatase, the overall composition of bacteria in your intestinal ecosystem, your propensities toward blood clotting, your level of carbohydrate tolerance, and your resistance to certain parasites and yeast.

"These factors include the activity of an enzyme called intestinal alkaline phosphatase, the overall composition of bacteria in your intestinal ecosystem, your propensities toward blood clotting, your level of carbohydrate tolerance, and your resistance to certain parasites and yeast."

That is really interesting.  So are nonnies more likely to have thicker blood, not do as well on grains, more susceptible to candida, and what would it do to your intestinal ecosystem? cause either constipation or diarrhea?

I've noticed on the forum many O's don't eat any grains at all and I do well on brown rice....is that a nonnie difference?
