Antibodies directed against a different blood type from ours, are the absolute most powerful in the whole of our immune system. Most of the antibodies are usually produced under the influence of a particular stimulus, like for example, a vaccine or an infection; while the antibodies of the blood types are automatically hidden! That is, if there is an intruder, the reaction of agglutination and elimination is automatic. There is much more regarding this aspect. Researchers working in this field have found that (citing the words of Dr. D’Adamo in his book) <
This information was left unused for nearly a century, until a minority of people among whom doctors, nutritionists, naturopaths, and researchers, began to explore this vital information in order to understand our function at the level of nutritional health, i.e., much of what influences our physical but also mental health.
In the first part of this paper, we continue to follow Dr. Peter J. D’Adamo’s logical path between food and blood. Therefore, as previously explained, there is an unbreakable bond, linked to our genetic baggage, in relation to our evolution. In fact, although it may seem surprising, our digestive and immune systems still favor foods eaten by our ancestors of the same blood type. The reason for this lies in proteins called lectins. These proteins have the agglutinating capacity in blood and are abundant in various foods, even those considered beneficial “for everyone”.
A considerable number of germs, the same immune system benefits from this <
Why does all of this happen? A certain food has the same characteristics as the antigens of a blood type, i.e. the lectins contained in food have a similar antigen to a given blood type, which if ingested by a person of a different blood type from the antigen on the lectin, will activate the reaction of agglutination in the blood. For example, milk possesses the lectins very similar to those in antigen B, i.e. blood type B. If an individual with blood type A drinks milk, his immune system automatically activates the mechanisms of agglutination, in an attempt to eliminate harmful substances, and trying to reject it just as if it had been introduced to blood from blood type B! Each lectin, not digested properly, whether it is contained in milk, beans, grains, or fruit, is different, and favors different organs, and once it has arrived at its “pre-chosen” destination, the lectin, which we know acts like glue, exercises this bonding effect on the surrounding cells, luring them to itself and forming small conglomerates, which in the second half will be destroyed, but still causing considerable stress to the digestive and immune systems.
Fortunately, 95% of the lectins found in food is easily eliminated by our body, or almost; however, there is a remaining 5% of food containing harmful lectins that, unless you are properly aware of which ones are damaging for your blood type, trigger a series of reactions that lead to the destruction of red blood cells. As already explained, harmful lectins can attack the intestine and stomach, triggering an inflammation of the mucous membranes in these organs that should not be underestimated, having similar symptoms to those you could experience during an allergic reaction. But it is not necessary to ingest significant amounts; small doses are enough to agglutinate a significant quantity of cells. Obviously this occurs when there is an incompatibility with your blood type. Having said this, we should not “be afraid” of food, but be able to recognize it, to recognize which lectins are damaging to us specifically and which are not. For example, gluten (found in wheat and other grains) has an inflammatory power in the intestine; type O is particularly sensitive to this lectin and should avoid eating it, since these people could go against inflammation much more easily. All lectins have diverse forms; those of wheat, for example, will be different from those of soy. Therefore, each of them will be harmful to some and beneficial for others. Everyone’s nerve tissues are very sensitive to the process of agglutination, generated by the lectins contained in food. For exception, diets, such as those for allergy sufferers, in fact, are very useful for treating nervous disorders. Now you may ask, but how do you know which lectins are harmful for my body and which aren’t?
Professor D’Adamo has scientifically proven, after testing almost all of the most common food in his laboratory, the reaction which lectins have with different blood types and when the process of agglutination is determined. There is a more direct method, even for “ordinary mortals”, that more easily shows us the extent of harmful lectins present in our body; it entails a simple urine test that measures the quantity of indican, an organic compound that indicates the phenomena of intestinal fermentation. If the liver and intestine are not able to digest or properly utilize a certain protein, (lectins specific to foods, you remember they are proteins) they produce chemicals that are eliminated through feces and urine. By eliminating foods containing lectins that are wrong for us, the level of indican in the urine will be minimal. Patients of Dr. D’Adamo, as he himself affirms, do not often pass the exam with flying colors, because even a sporadic ingestion of food not recommended, will have a very long disposal from our body, even if it doesn’t appear so to us. The amount of indican sufficient to determine the existence of an incorrect diet is approximately 2.5. Patients of Dr. D’Adamo accurately following the prescribed diet, drop to levels of 1 or even 0 in just 2 weeks. It is probably the first time that you’ve heard about this exam, and perhaps as D’Adamo says, in the future <
Professor D’Adamo continues these arguments in a much more comprehensive manner in his book. The effectiveness of his diets and prescribing them in the book itself, are the reason for which proper diets have come to be understood for people belonging to a given blood type.
In this thesis, we continue with a more general argument, to ensure that each person can self-reflect on these issues and learn about that which he believes useful for himself.
We will now see more specifically, continuously following the scientific evidence of Dr. D’Adamo, the correlations between blood type, diet, and medical problems best known to us.
At this point, there is a preliminary awareness regarding how our blood is closely related to our diet, which is closely related to our state of health. Not surprisingly, blood tests are done to discover if it is good or not, and to cure any disorder, deficit, or any issues revealed by the above-mentioned analyses. The most immediate curative answer is the prescription of a very large amount of medications by doctors; drugs to which we have become psychologically and physically dependent.
The point of view that no one takes into consideration, is that the medications commonly used for the flu, or those used for chronic diseases, are designed to act on a variety of people, acting on a specific microorganism or problem “coming from the outside”, not on the person himself, how he reacts to this intruder, and what his tolerance response is to the intruder or to the drug itself.
What really needs to be done is to consider these remedies, or most of them, from the right point of view; that is, as poison. Poison for the bacterium, not a treatment for the person, and in consequence poison for the person.
Medicine has made great strides in recent centuries, and pharmacological research has selected medications that can actually be useful and are able to act selectively on “that which does not work”; but there are many others who do not fulfill this responsibility, and that cannot be ignored, because it is for one’s own health, and complaining later, or feeling disoriented right after the discovery of a disease, and putting yourself in the hands of someone and at the same time praying to God, has never been useful to anyone. And the famous saying, “to prevent is better than to cure”, has never been more appropriate. Just think of the cancer drugs used to fight tumors; they are able to attack the diseased cells, but are absolutely not able to save the healthy ones.
This is not to belittle the progress of medicine, but to simply be critical, and also understand the dynamics that are the basis of what nowadays is conventionally considered “fair”.
However, this is not to criticize neither Dr. D’Adamo nor the drug itself, but the excessive use of it. We abuse flu medicine, painkillers, antibiotics, antihistamines, laxatives, cough medicine, sore throat medicine, and so on… not to deny the usefulness of these drugs, but the proper use of the latter. Remembering that what we take as “anti-something”, in reality works against precious SYMPTOMS and against the messages that our body sends to make us understand where and what could be the real problem or deficiency. Perhaps the most common problem in our day is the problem linked to antibiotics and cancer drugs; the antibiotic is able to eliminate a specific bacterial strain. One would think “fabulous no?” No, absolutely not. That is, in the event that it is really necessary, (please refer to the book) obviously yes, but at the moment in which the thermometer displays that our temperature has risen, in fear or in haste to “be well” we run to take medicine to lower the fever, or antibiotics to eradicate the bacterium, having absolutely no knowledge that the fever is only a symptom of the fact that our immune system has taken action and is attempting to resolve the issue. The antibiotic, unlike for example Echinacea, does not help to solve the problem, it eliminates it; but eliminates the problem before the immune system realizes what’s happening. The antibiotic, in fact, arrives in the blink of an eye to the bacterium, before our “extinguishing” sentinels respond and strengthen our immune system. The body can not only eradicate the bacterium alone, but by taking five days instead of three, could memorize the antigens of those bacteria and defeat them more quickly should they reappear. Using an antibiotic when it is not necessary, totally eliminates the possibility of memorization, and an ease of re-presentation of the same bacterium, because it made the immune system weaker; even if, for a certain period, the bacterium seems subdued. Furthermore, the continued use of an antibiotic alters the intestinal flora, causing diarrhea and heartburn, having to resort to supplements, and increasingly weakening our immune system, not using it and not allowing it to create the necessary memory, becoming dependent on medication. There are, actually, wars that must be fought with antibiotics, but not arriving at these wars, the little battles are defeated in a different way, and independently help that which nature has already made available. The fact remains that the physician has the expertise to say this, but no one denies another the ability to see a doctor who possesses the right amount of information on one’s blood type and body. The questions you should ask yourself when you exhibit a particular symptom, whether it is mucous, a headache, joint pain, heartburn, fever… lead us to understand, according to the style of life led in that period, what is the cause, and if the symptom occurs more or less frequently over time. Not all symptoms and diseases can be addressed independently, obviously, and using medications on your own is the worst thing you can do, even natural remedies that have immense power. To consult with a doctor or whomever you prefer, is the correct choice; but going there with an awareness of oneself is even better. To give a hint of the specificity which Dr. D’Adamo talks about in his book, and to better understand this concept, here is an example: antihistamines, used to treat disorders related to allergies, in addition to giving an annoying drowsiness, may increase blood pressure, therefore particularly harmful to those of type A or AB, as they may cause prostate problems and other types of terrible contraindications. But at the level of natural remedies, there are also specificities, for example: for a fever, diverse remedies are recommended, but among these catnip is rarely suggested for blood type A. Although obviously, it would not be indicated that the contraindications of a natural remedy, less suitable in respect to the consumption of a mistaken medication or poorly tolerated one, would be less harmful to the body, and the removal of the ingested toxins would be less difficult. For further detail on the specifics of conventional medicine and natural remedies for your blood type, please refer to the book “Eat For/4 Your Type” by the professor.
We are looking for answers to this question; as we proceed with this paper, having so far examined the history of man, his blood type, and his subjectivity in the matter of food and treatment, there is also a correlation between blood type and greater exposure to certain diseases.
For those who get sick, the question that arises more spontaneously is, “but why me?” Regardless of medical discoveries made, this question often remains unanswered, but there are useful discoveries that we ignore, like for example, predisposition given by blood type to contract certain diseases. To better understand, there are certainly people who get sick less often and those who, every winter, have colds and the flu. Why? People who do not get sick surely have a blood type that makes their immune system resistant against infections.
Those with blood type A should be particularly attentive, seeing as they have a very lazy immune system which does not bother much to eliminate degenerate cells; and the latter, accumulating, could give rise to tumors. Looking at the reality, one should not be frightened, but create awareness for prevention. You will notice how everything will come spontaneously, because inevitably, you will feel better with the proper diet. However, the doctor speaks in a profound manner of every disease and infection specific to each blood type in his book; here we will deal with the most prevalent disease at the moment, cancers.
Anyone who has had the experience of cancer in the family knows how devastating, absurd, mysterious, and degenerative this disease is, both physically and mentally. The stages that lead millions of people to their deaths every day, are usually always the same: first a mastectomy (operation of the removal of the breasts), then chemotherapy, and if all goes “well”, five years of Tamoxifen or other oral chemotherapies that give rise to monstrous contraindications on both physical and mental levels. Following this therapy, they have the first relapses, given that the “guaranteed” protection is five years, following other chemotherapy so as to give more space to the sick cells and not the healthy ones. And then you enter into what is called the terminal phase, that is, the body and mind are exhausted, and they die.
Dr. D’Adamo affirms that there is a correlation between blood type and cancer; and that the available data on the subject reveals that the incidence of this disease mainly affects those with blood type A or AB, and also those who possess a more sluggish immune system. Therefore, oral and intravenous chemotherapy are still less tolerated in respect to other blood types. Scientific data is available about this, but no data explains why it is more difficult for types O and B to fall ill with cancer, but research continues on this subject. Surely, blood type is not the only piece to understanding the cause of cancer; the causes are numerous, like if people in your family had this type of problem, pollution, radiation, a myriad of chemical substances with which we come into contact every day, and our life habits. What D’Adamo aims to do is to understand not only who has a predisposition to this type of disease, but also who has the possibility to come out of it victorious.
The key is found in lectins.
Lectins, having an agglutinative power, as previously mentioned. They also have the power to attract and to agglutinate the cancerous cells. They act as a kind of catalyst of immune functions, protecting the healthy cells. How does this process take place? A healthy cell is able to produce sugars in a controlled and specific manner; a sick cell no longer has control of anything. The sugars produced in the outer layer are produced in excessive amounts. Furthermore, they no longer go into apoptosis (i.e., cell death, if a functioning cell realizes it is sick, it “commits suicide”). These abundant sugars on the surface, however, are more sensitive to an agglutinative effect. But the use of lectins is limited, and it is truly a waste of time because, as he says, our diet contains the most various types and shapes, and using this potential could increase by far the possibility of survival for the sick and really “the quality of life”.
Currently breast cancer, among other things, is one of the most common cancers; it is the cancer for which a tangible existence in correlation to lectins has been recognized. And the effects could be extremely advantageous especially for types A and AB which do not respond well to the traditional cures such as groups O and B, even though they are still subject to considerable physical exertion with chemotherapy and so on, but they manage to recover more easily.
The reason for this difference << In 1991, a study appeared in the LANCET, an English medical journal, which may have provided part of the answer. Researchers reported that it appeared possible to predict whether or not a breast cancer would spread to the lymph nodes by virtue of its characteristics when treated with a stain containing a lectin from the edible snail, HELIX POMATIA. They reported a strong association between the uptake of the snail lectin and the subsequent development of metastasis (transfer of cancer) to the lymph nodes. In other words, antigens on the surface of the primary breast cancer cells were changing, and this change was allowing the cancer to spread into the lymph nodes. The key is that the lectin of HELIX POMATIA is highly specific--to Blood Type A>> (first defense of the immune system). This happens less in people with type O and B since they are able to more easily recognize the intruders and get rid of them.
There is no need to be afraid if you are blood type A or AB. Rather, knowing these weak points will be useful to strengthen them. On pages 310 and 317 of the book “Eat Right For/4 Your Type” or “alimentazione su misura”, all the advice to follow if you are of this blood type and how to prevent the onset of these diseases, or how to counter them, is indicated. If someone mentions it, animal fats and proteins are difficult to digest for group A; one should do without them and favor particular foods such as for example soy. The properties of soya beans, in fact, are those which have Femara or Tamoxifen, oral chemotherapies. Soya beans, if eaten sooner will prevent the onset of cancer, and if eaten later, will help the body anyway in fighting the disease. Why are soya beans so important? Because << Soya bean agglutinins are able to selectively identify early mutated cells producing the Type A antigen and sweep them from the system--while leaving normal Type A cells alone!>>
This is especially effective in breast cancer. Soya beans have been used to <
