True, but look at you main point: That the Price Pottenger diet harmonizes with type O. In essence, because of that, it is as reductionist as any other similar approach. By the way, the studies of soy's toxicity are heavily extrapolated: Many of the soy opponents point to certain studies to prove their point, but leave out others which came to different conclusions. Case in point: Thyroid inhibiton. True, studies on mice showed that incredibly high doses of raw soy does inhibit thyroid function in mice, but other studies showed that in different species thyroid metabolism is enhanced. But this is never mentioned. And, how many people sit around and eat tons of raw soy? As I said in an earlier post, we look at each person somewhat individually. Soy for type O is neutral, and to a certain degree in type B, an avoid. However, in type A, soy is probably a life-saving nutrient. Now, how do we fit this into an argument that asserts that soy is a toxin for everyone?
