In Response To: Lectins, Antigens, and Lactaid (Karla)
Okay, so you were wrong about lectins but right about agglutination. :) But what antigen is it? I seem to recall that his argument was that Os are usually lactose intolerant and that milk gave As mucus because of the antigens, which made me think the antigens weren't a big deal for Os, just the lactose. But now I wonder if milk has the B antigen. That would explain why it's an avoid for Os and As, a HB for Bs and a neutral for ABs. But if milk has the B antigen, then wouldn't beef? And then how could beef be a HB for Os??
I'm not sure you're right about lactaid making those antigens more harmful, though. If the lactose is giving you gas because you lack the enzymes to digest it, I really don't see how this protects you from the antigens getting to the lining of your intestines. If they're in your belly, they're in your belly.
anyhoo...avoid the avoids you feel you must avoid. :D I don't worry about whey, and worry lots about wheat, corn, and potatoes, but that's just my choice.
