Back on December 5, I sent several questions to the old e-mail address in the ER4YT book and have never gotten a response. So, hopefully this is the right place to get some answers.
Could you comment on:
1) the research on lycopenes from tomatoes and their allegedly positive effect on the prostate (reduction in size, and risk of cancer) and Type A men over 40. The Type A diet strongly recommends avoiding tomatoes because of other harmful effects. Is there any benefit to a Type A man over 40 eating tomatoes?
2) the studies that state that too much animal protein can contribute to osteoporosis. Can a Type O woman with a high risk factor for osteoporosis, eat the quantities of meat suggested for the Type O diet?
3) aflatoxins in peanuts and type A. Since itís recommended that Type Aís eat peanuts, are they not affected by the aflatoxins? Also, Iíve heard that nuts should be stored in the refrigerator to prevent rancidity - is this also true of peanuts?
4) tempeh vs. tofu. Iíve attended numerous lectures where itís been recommended to eat the fermented soy products such as miso and tempeh, more than tofu. It looks like they both have benefits for Type A, but Iím just curious.
5) yogurt. I also heard in a lecture that fermented milk has been part of manís history from the beginning, and itís wonderful for instilling the good bacteria in the intestines, and laying down calcium in the bones better than most other dairy products. I noticed itís neutral for Type A, and only one type does well with dairy in general. If a Type A or O person limited their dairy intake to only 6 to 8 ounces of yogurt daily, would that be of benefit to them or have more of a negative effect?
