The Blood Type Diet Archives Volume 12

What do the Masai know?

Found this in yesterday's Boston Globe. What, I wonder, is the predominant blood type among the Masai??

Walking for the tribe
Maasai treks to fund college
By Adrianne Appel, Globe Correspondent, 11/29/99

It was a typical autumn scene along the Charles River bike path, with cyclists in Lycra pants pedaling ahead of joggers in brightly colored shorts - until Ledama Olekina, a visiting student at the University of Massachusetts at Boston, showed up.

Olekina wore a red toga and many strands of handmade beaded necklaces. He had a sword at his hip and carried a staff.
Except for the sneakers on his feet, this is standard garb for Olekina. He is not a typical weekend health buff. He is a Maasai warrior from Kenya and, he explains, this is the way warriors dress. Olekina is in training for an epic trek, his own personal walkathon. Dressed in warrior garb, he will march from Boston to Chicago in May to raise money to give his fellow tribesmen something they have never had: a university.

His training diet is as striking as his dress: He eats steak every day, as the Maasai diet derives almost exclusively from cows.
