In Response To: Re: Globe and Mail article on ER4YT (Peter D'Adamo)
from the article: "The diet could actually be harmful to some people, Dr. Anderson warns. "The book says that Type Os should avoid wheat. Yet we know that diets based on whole grains lead to lower colon cancer. There's no evidence that having Type O blood will protect you from the effects of a bad diet."
How the $@#$# do people get MDs these days? Helloooo? Lack of *wheat* equals lack of grains? Lack of *wheat* is a "bad diet"? Lack of *wheat* causes colon cancer? Grains "lower colon cancer"? No, they lower the RISK, they don't remove the risk, and they certainly don't cure it. Besides, the evidence I've seen points to FIBER, not GRAINS, and certainly not WHEAT as the factor that lowers your risk.
Irregardless of Dr. D'Adamo's theories, this man's wheat defensiveness is absurd: Wheat is not the only source of fiber, and is not even a very good source itself. There, that collapses the claim that lack of wheat equals low-fiber equals bad diet equals colon cancer.
Can I have my MD now?
Wheat avoidingly yours,
