The Blood Type Diet Archives Volume 8
Lectins, Antigens, and Lactaid

I posted a while back about an O wanting to use Lactaid to make milk a neutral. I thought that Lactaid's pre-digesting the components in milk would be a bad thing, as it would make them more bio-available--or stripped of coatings and therefore more reactive with the tissues of the digestive tract. Then there was a post by Sonia saying that Dr. D never said milk had lectins, only blood-type antigens.
And I'm all, "What?" If you've got a blood-type antigen travelling through your body, you can bet that your immune system is going to agglutinate all over it! So, what's the difference between a lectin and a blood-type antigen? I mean, in terms of the reaction of the immune system?
