In Response To: Eek, my favorite food is an avoid! (Steve Shapiro)

I've never heard of tofu being considered a fermented food. Soy milk is treated with an acidic culture and the curds separate out -- much like cottage cheese, etc. This is something that hasn't been my favorite aspect of the ER4YT book. Dr. D'Adamo states that tofu is benign for B's but that he includes it in the list of avoid foods for the simple reason that he would prefer that B's get their protein from flesh sources and is concerned that tofu might become a predominant source in their diet. Perhaps Dr. D'Adamo should expand the categories to add a fourth for such types of food. It would be helpful if only the truly detrimental foods were listed separately. You really have to read between the lines on these things and it makes one suspicious of other foods listed on the avoid list when there is no specific explanation as to why they are detrimental. Does pumpkin on a 'B' avoid make sense when other squashes in the same family are just fine??????
