Good news: None of this is true!

In Response To: Dr. D'Adamo Please answer! (Paul)
That is just another tired argument in favor of global veganism. Uric acid is a metabolic end product of protein degradation and not a thermal reaction. While it is true that some amino acids in meat are no doubt precipitated or other wise rendered unusable, it would be generous to say that it is a tiny fraction of the total.
Remember, these are generalized statements. With our advanced knowledge of the blood types, we can say that it is at best only partially true, and probably a valid concern for blood types principally other than type O.
As far as the colon length, teeth, etc. I have yet to ever see any scientific references proving or disproving this, so I can't really say. Some of the work that I have seen, such as Weston Price and Ronald Schmid, would almost seem to contradict this notion.
