Questions About The Diets

Of Snails and Chickens


How often should you eat snail to reap the benefits of the lectin? 2.Does chicken broth & boullion contain the harmful chicken lectins too? I am an AB. After 3 weeks on the diet, I am off all of my asthma inhalers! Thank you for your wonderful research!!!!!!


Although there is no clear-cut answer to the level of snails one should consume if they are type A or AB in order to get the maximum protective benefit, my own innate feeling is that 4-6 snails, 1-2 times weekly would be adequate, since this is the normal ammount used in many European countries in which escargot are esteemed as an anti-cancer food.

Anything made of or from the muscle meat of chicken will contain chicken lectin (actually a 'galectin', but that is another story!)

Congratulations on the success with the asthma.

The Ask Dr. D'Adamo internet advice column ran from 1996 to 2009, at which time Dr. D'Adamo's teaching and programming responsibilities no longer allowed him to devote time and resources to directly answering visitor questions. However we've recently reorganized this treasure-trove of material and made it again available to his readership. He occasionally posts new entries. These are marked with a NEW tag.
