In Response To: How could you lose credibility? (Lisa)
It is the same old stuff. Their pitiful reasons for not believing: The research was things he and his father had written and on from there. The excuse they give that blood type is arbitrary--getting hung up on some of the blood type evolutionary processes. All the same things the critics looked for and didn't see the forest through the trees. I told her the research was in the last book. I could have gone on to her but frankly she wasn't worth a minute more. There were desparate people among the researchers there like the man that was looking for a diet for his father with multiple myeloma. You might enjoy this part. I was talking at lunch with the doctor that was head of the world branch that they just made of the AICR. I told him my story--he listened with interest--and I told him about Dr. D and how I read his book and saw my whole family in there with their medical history like my dad a type A who died with stomach cancer. He said "It's well known that type A's had more stomach cancer." Well I never read that anywhere before. So I kept right on talking about snail lectins etc. He was kind enough to at least listen, but he seemed very interested in my choices and how they were intuitive from the surgery choices I made and the others for that point on. He wanted to know what other survivers needed. He is a really important man--I told him I had to think about it and get back to him. I need to write something profound.
