Kids have higher levels of acid - not yet damaged by lifetime of wrong foods?

Very interesting discussion. I asked my physician
about ER4YT for my 4 year old atopic AB son. He said
to absolutely avoid the bad lectins for him (like chicken
and corn) but that avoiding the low stomach acid avoids
was pointless since children almost invariably have more acid
than adults regardless of ABO group and can digest things
like beef very well.

Brings some questions to mind:
1. Are stomach acid levels due to ABO group? Wouldn't children
exhibit levels to type in this case? Since they don't, at least according
to my doctor, then let's ask:

2. Are low stomach acid levels due to simple aging? If so, we would
see the same trend in all adults - but we see the opposite in O's and A's.
So this is not the answer.

3. Interaction between aging and ABO group? This would mean
that as aging occurred, the type-specific acid levels would
begin to exhibit. This is plausible.

4. Interaction between ABO group and diet, as T. Moody hypothesizes?
I find this most compelling, especially with the anecdotal evidence that A's
have better digestion once they are on ER4YT. What I'd like to know is, what
are stomach acid levels like in HEALTHY adult A's? That is, those who are
NOT seeking relief from symptoms and NOT showing signs of future heart disease.

Dr. D, what kinds of samples did you use in your studies? Patients who
were seeking help for illnesses, or healthy adult A's who have been eating right
for their type for their entire lives? I would think the latter would
be impossible to find enough of to conduct a study, at least here in the US.

Food for thought.
