In Response To: serotype results are in: I'm NN; now what? (JimB(A1o,Rh+,Secretor,NN))


QUESTION: I'm a type A and we in California eat a lot of Mexican food. I haven't found many references to Mexican food ingredients in your book. For example, can a type A eat corn tortillas? or the herb cilantro an important ingredient in Mexican style food?

ANSWER: In general, corn tortillas are fine for most A's (Note: corn is more problematic for the rarer A2 subtype and a subtype NN in the MN system). However, I recommend you purchase tortillas processed with lime (the alkali mineral not the fruit). This processing method was used traditionally by most cultures depending upon corn as a staple. Coincidentally, it has been shown to favorably alter the protein profile of corn and I suspect might help denature some of the lectin activity. As far as cilantro, this food is neutral for A's and listed in the book by its other common name, coriander.

So you're type NN: now what?
